On the plus side, Rachel Maddow isn't teaching history to impressionable youth in high school or college. But it's hardly preferable that she spouts her dubious versions of it from a cable platform at MSNBC.

In the wake of President Trump's freewheeling press conference in which he excoriated the media for its persistent bias, Maddow harkened back to a simpler time she considers so much better -- the media's allegedly aggressive coverage of the Kennedy administration.

CNN went completely off the rails during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources,” as host/“ridiculous figure” Brian Stelter and his guests labeled President Donald Trump an authoritarian dictator with reckless abandon. After opening the program by calling Trump’s comments about the media “poison,” Stelter turned the floor over to CNN reporter Carl Bernstein who declared, “There's a history of what ‘enemy of the people,’ that phrase means as used by dictators and authoritarians including Stalin, including Hitler.” And he warned that Trump’s words are “masses in the brain that ought to concern” everyone.

The liberal media took Senator John McCain’s warning of a dictator Donald Trump during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC and ran with it as the biggest story of the day, seeming to use it as a vindication of their smears since day one. “Is that over the top? Or is there a concern,” ABC’s Jon Karl inquired to Senator Rand Paul on This Week. While on CBS’s Face the Nation, moderator John Dickerson worried that Trump supporters would take it upon themselves and violently “act” against the “enemy” press.

During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC finally became worried about “skyrocketing” illegal immigration and the strain on resources. But it was not illegal immigration into the United States they were fretting about, but that into Canada. “Illegally crossing the border, fueled by fears after recent immigration raids and uncertainty over President Trump's executive order,” announced co-anchor Dan Harris during the opening tease, “Can Canada handle this new influx?”

In case you missed it, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has joined The Hollywood Reporter as a contributing editor. Under such arrangement, he’ll write a regular column and conduct celebrity interviews. His first column set be featured in THR’s February 24 print publication (currently available online), talking race, history, romance and the “bigoted” message of the Academy Award nominated movie musical La La Land.

On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, after NewsMax's J.D. Hayworth appeared on a panel where he was outnumbered by liberals 3:1, host Joy Reid repeatedly attempted to race-bait the former Republican congressman with stories that ranged from false to misleading, and ended up kicking him off the show when she was dissatisfied with how he answered her questions. Reid: "I think we're done with this segment because you literally answered a non sequitur that's incredibly offensive. I'm going to let Rosie Perez talk about the -- thank you for being here. No, you know what, what an odd exchange."

New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg, hyper-sensitive to threats to his profession from fearsome President Trump -- found his most dubious one yet and wrote it up as a dark threat barely averted in Saturday’s “A Newsroom Risk In the Trump Era: Self-Censorship.” He got right into the drama, with Trump as a fascist-in-formation: "This is how the muzzling starts: not with a boot on your neck, but with the fear of one that runs so deep that you muzzle yourself." The Times clearly felt no censorship threat when it ran a compilation of vile overseas news accounts of Trump’s media-trashing press conference.

The New York Times on Thursday discovered that journalists have found a “renewed sense of mission” under Donald Trump. Times reporters Michael M. Grynbaum and Sydney Ember explained, “For journalists anxious about the state of their profession, there is a renewed sense of mission.”

Lateral movement in one direction or the other routinely comes into play in sports. That’s not the case in sports media, which almost always go to the left. “Today, sportswriting is basically a liberal profession,” declared Bryan Curtis in a Thursday piece for The Ringer. Curtis noted that “Donald Trump’s election was merely an accelerant for a change that was already sweeping across sportswriting” and added, “Forget the viability of being a Trump-friendly sportswriter today. Could someone even be a Paul Ryan–friendly sportswriter…? ”

You might call it The Media versus America. The President of the United States held a press conference on Thursday. On that, everyone agreed. But after that? Words like “unhinged” a particular favorite to describe the event. Here’s a sample of the headline reaction.The New York Times: An Aggrieved President Moves His Surrogates Aside, The Washington Post: Debrief: In an erratic performance, Trump shows his supporters who’s boss

In a Friday guest post on The New Republic’s website, Steven Beutler surmised that explaining President Donald Trump’s “bizarre, volatile behavior” and concerns “raging among mental health professionals about Trump’s mental state” could be put to rest with his guess that Trump’s been battling a Sexual Transmitted Disease (STD) and specifically syphilis.

Univision and Fusion anchor has penned yet another moral preen of a column, this time, scolding America for having elected Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States. But the only thing that Ramos managed to signal here, beyond progressive virtue, was precisely how out of touch he is with the country he purports to lecture.

Talk about a stretch! Or, better, make that a streeeeeeetch. Vox has started a new type of movie review in which they take a film  and try to correrelate it to current events. Since Vox, like the rest of the MSM, is absolutely obessed by President Trump, it is no big surprise that they will apply their TDS to the reviews starting with the current movie: "Dr. Strangelove." To read the review by Alissa Wilkinson you would think Stanley Kubrick's classic dark comedy should have been named "Dr. StrangeTrump or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Donald."

Don't expect the media to fact check any sketches painting President Trump in a bad light. Reporters are too busy cheering them on. Remember when Saturday Night Live mocked President Barack Obama? Yes, it did happen. Only the sketches aimed at the first black president were so rare they became a special event, like a holiday of sorts.

Univision has just sprung a report so awfully biased and deceptive that after watching it, one is left with the impression that President Trump may have been a bit too hasty in bestowing his coveted "Very Fake News" label upon CNN.
