It must be a requirement on ABC’s The View that the hosts create scandals out of nonsense just to have something to whine about. As proof, Friday’s show began with host Joy Behar complaining about what she called the “saddest day in the history of the White House,” (and surprisingly she didn’t say it was the day Donald Trump was elected!)

Despite a combined six hours of available air time, ABC and NBC on Friday skipped Donald Trump’s dramatic intervention to free an American aid worker who has been detained in an Egyptian prison for three years. Only CBS This Morning bothered to cover the effort to get Aya Hijazi back to her home in Virginia.

The press's determination to gin up criticism of President Donald Trump at every conceivable turn was on clear display yesterday at the Associated Press. In its timeline coverage of the Paris terrorist attack which left one police officer dead and two seriously wounded, the AP deliberately twisted Trump's comment that it "looks like another terrorist attack."

The New York Times is trying to make it look like it's doing everything it can to back away from the tweet it published Wednesday afternoon showing a bogus comparison of the turnouts from the 2015 and 2017 White House appearances of the players and front office personnel of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. In truth, it's doing everything except the one thing it should do.

On Thursday's CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, substitute host Ana Cabrera presented a pre-recorded report in which she visited Colorado and informed viewers of the unintended consequences of Colorado's legalization of marijuana. The CNN host found that, instead of undermining the black market for marijuana as promised, illegal growers have been taking advantage of legalization to illegally export pot to other states -- "straining" the state's law enforcement.

Following their humiliating defeat in the 2016 election, the Democratic Party found themselves in a terrible place where they were down over 1000 seats through all levels of government since 2008. And according to one high-ranking Party official, one person held the blame. “The number two official for the Democrats says former President Obama is to blame for the Party's recent electoral failures,” Fox News’ Bret Baier reported on Special Report on Thursday, while the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored the figure pointing.

As Venezuelan ruler Nicolas Maduro struggled against violent protests against him, the U.S. based company General Motors had its means of production seized by the socialist regime Thursday. “General Motors tonight saying it's been forced to suspend its operation in Venezuela after the government there confiscated its factory,” announced ABC Anchor David Muir during World News Tonight, “GM forced to lay off 2700 workers, but vowing to fight this tonight.” Sadly, CBS was the only network not to report the theft.

The liberal media spent the entire campaign warning Donald Trump that bashing the media would be his undoing, but instead, Trump is president and the media further deepened the public’s disgust with their flagrant hostility. The same goes for TV's squad of "satirists."
Even the liberal magazine The Atlantic has published an article exploring “How Late-Night Comedy Fueled the Rise of Trump.”

ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. usually manages to toe the line between liberal ideology and hardcore reality. Their latest story arc takes the characters to a Matrix-like alternate world where the writers can make up any reality they want. In this case, it’s a world where we still have to deal with the “nevertheless, she persisted” line like it means something.

The National Geographic Channel announced on Wednesday, April 19, that it will collaborate with the Weinstein Company and rapper and businessman Jay Z -- whose actual name is Shawn Corey Carter -- to produce Race, a six-part documentary series that will offer “a stark and provocative look into systemic injustices in America.”

In the moments following President Trump’s Thursday press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, MSNBC and its myirad of guests swiftly condemned Trump for referring to the deadly shooting in Paris on the Champs-Élysées as a terrorist attack.

Once again Telemundo conflates legal immigration with illegal immigration, and levels the seemingly all-purpose 'anti-immigrant' smear at anyone who dares advocate for the enforcement of federal immigration laws. This time, the network did so by kicking Bill O'Reilly on his way out of Fox News.

In a Denver church that opened today, the term “high priest” takes on a whole new meaning. After all, according to a Huffington Post article, marijuana is the congregation’s “holy sacrament.” April 20 is weed day, and the liberal media have made an over-the-top effort to highlight the drug. But amidst articles on cannabis cocktails and weed-growing “nuns,” the Huffington Post’s piece on Denver’s new International Church of Cannabis might just be the most disturbing.

In the wake of Bill O’Reilly’s exit from Fox News, USA Today on Thursday decided to highlight a woman who endured sexual harassment from someone powerful and is now the “torchbearer in the decades-long fight against sexual harassment.” Unsurprisingly, that woman is not Paula Jones or one of the women who stood up to Bill Clinton’s sexual harassment. It’s Anita Hill and her efforts to take down Clarence Thomas.

Appearing on MSNBC in the 3 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, during breaking news coverage of a shooting along the Champs Elysees in Paris, Daily Beast World News Editor Christopher Dickey was more worried by the prospect of France’s “very far-right party” using the incident as an issue in the nation’s upcoming presidential election than he was with the welfare of people caught up in the violence.
