The esteemed British novelist Ian McEwan -- most honored for his novel Atonement -- demonstrated the usual mean-spirited leftist take on how the socialist view is always just seconds from overwhelming victory. The leftist paper The Guardian reported that at a crabby "Remain" conference in Westminster, he said Brexit can be rejected soon since 1.5 million conservative or nationalist "oldsters" will soon be "freshly in their graves."

Actor Robert DeNiro has made no attempt to hide his contempt for President Donald Trump, often using interviews as a platform to rail against Trump.  Last Monday proved no different when he accepted a lifetime achievement award and decided to use his acceptance speech and take aim at President Trump’s proposed budget, which would cut funds to the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.  For the record, Trump’s budget wasn’t signed into law, but that didn’t stop DeNiro from calling it “bullsh*t.”

On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, liberal comedian John Fugelsang mocked "right-wing Christians" as people who have "rejected the teachings of Jesus," and, by voting for Donald Trump, were voting for "Caligula, Judas, and the Golden Calf all in one convenient package." A bit later, after right-leaning guest Kirsten Haglund recalled that evangelical Christian pastors have been under pressure from church members to support President Trump, race-obsessed MSNBC host Joy Reid introduced race into the discussion as she wondered if President Barack Obama was viewed as an "alien" and that Trump is "what a President is supposed to look like" from the point of view of conservative church goers.

The Associated Press and reporter Julie Pace are among the last institutions and people on earth, respectively, with any credibility to harangue the public about the dangers of "a man willing to challenge - in dramatic fashion - the institutions created to hold the president accountable." But there they were on Wednesday morning, in the wake of President Donald Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, doing just that.

Irony alert: Fear of conservative media bias made the front page of the New York Times. The front-page story in Saturday’s edition. featured media reporter Sydney Ember taking another bite out of Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns local television stations in many markets: “TV Titan’s Tilt On the News Roils Its Staff.” The Times, you see, is worried about political bias – not the obvious liberal tile of CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, etc., but the alleged right-tilt of Sinclair! The text box is particularly rich, coming in a time when all the broadcast networks and all but one cable outlet are weighted heavily against the sitting Republican president: “Sinclair Requires TV Stations to Air Segments That Tilt to the Right.”

Since the November election left him with little influence to peddle, Bill Clinton has once again turned to peddling fiction. On May 8, it was announced that James Patterson and former President Clinton are co-authoring a thriller, “The President is Missing.”

Your average liberal journalist isn't going to think The New Yorker magazine when it comes to fake-news sites on Facebook. But my wife hopped in the car yesterday and asked, in a please-shoot-this-down tone: "Trump didn't really say that if I'm impeached, I'll have the greatest ratings ever." My first reply -- not kidding -- was "that sounds like Andy Borowitz and his brand of humor/hate at the Borowitz Report. Sure enough, it was.

For a real-life example of how to succeed in business without really trying, check out the “Lean Forward” channel, suggests The Week’s Ryan Cooper. Cooper asserts that MSNBC is “attempting to ditch its entire brand as a liberal network just as it is starting to pay off handsomely,” and indicated that the driving force behind the ditchery is Andrew Lack, chairman of NBC News and MSNBC.

Hollywood's highest profile feminist gets smacked around by film critics for some surprising reasons. It isn’t easy being a woke celebrity. You try. And you try. Yet it’s never good enough. Katy Perry attempts to turn her grrrl power shtick into a political movement and gets popped by a withering op-ed in The Daily Beast.

Friday’s New York Times featured an obscure bit of history of interest to liberal Kennedy devotees, including perhaps Times reporter Matthew Haag, who used the hook to hang up some seriously starry-eyed hagiography in his news story, “Sounds of a Young Kennedy In a Harvard Classroom."

Liberals are hailing a new Hulu series called The Handmaid's Tale, based on a loopy 1985 novel by Canadian radical feminists Margaret Atwood. In this dystopian America, America is turned into a theocracy where women have been denied all rights, including to read. Liberals call it "very timely." This is why conservatives tend to laugh when liberals rail against the scourge of “fake news.” There is no faker news than the notion that America is on the precipice of a Puritan patriarchy under Donald Trump.

On Friday's NBC Nightly News, correspondent Hallie Jackson filed a report that focused on concerns by liberals about Attorney General Jeff Sessions giving orders for federal prosecutors to charge criminals with the aim to give tougher punishments, reversing former President Barack Obama's trend toward releasing criminals and seeking softer charges.

Some network newscasts, like NBC Nightly News, almost completely avoided the testimony of acting FBI director Andrew McCabe, skipping over how he put a severe crimp in anti-Trump narratives -- insisting the FBI's Russia probe was "adequately resourced" and that it hasn't been suppressed or impeded in any way. The late-night comedians were also allergic to those clips, but Trevor Noah was the most aggressive in running just the clips he liked.

Waaaaah! Dana Milbank is really really angry at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and if he doesn't do just want Dana wants him to do then he will be shunned by liberals forever and ever.

Milbank went into full petulant fury mode on this topic in his May 12 Washington Post column in which he angrily declares how betrayed he feels over the fact that Rosenstein did not follow the approved liberal narrative on the James Comey firing. Not only did Rosenstein commit the heresy of issuing a memo listing the reasons for firing Comey which all liberals wanted to happen right up to the moment he actually was fired by President Trump, he dared to contradict incorrect mainstream media reports that he threated to quit his job.

Long-time ESPN veterans and untouchable survivors of multiple layoffs, Jeremy Schaap and Bob Ley say sticking to sports will not work in the modern world of sports. Ley also says, according to Travis Waldron of The Huffington Post, that those who say ESPN is too political are hypocrites.
