If you were like one of the many viewers watching the Super Bowl LI, you may have seen a commercial from the American Petroleum Institute (API) with the catchy opening line, “This ain’t your daddy’s oil.” It was actually a play on General Motors’ 1988 commercial pitch, “this is not your father’s Oldsmobile,” in an effort to attract a younger generation.

The Big Three networks were eager Wednesday evening to drag out the Senate drama involving Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren being “silenced” by the mean old Republicans. But reporter Kasie Hunt took the story lower and wondered if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was being sexist to his colleague. She even pressed Warren herself for an answer, “Do you think what senator McConnell did last night was sexist?” But Warren wasn’t biting.

The Washington Post is joining the liberal chorus of wishful thinkers that Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer impression might damage Spicer and Donald Trump. Post reporter Elahe Izadi – who pitches herself as a stand-up comedian on the side – set out to promote anonymously-sourced stories of Trump unrest over the skit, and find leftist comedians who wished and hoped the NBC comedy show could convince President Trump to resign.
Matthews Sneers: Cruz’s ‘Unpleasantness’ ‘Is Immeasurable’; Expresses Concern for Kaine Post-ElectionBy Curtis Houck | | February 8, 2017 | 8:54 PM EST
On Wednesday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews took his latest cheapshot at Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.), ruling that “[h]is unpleasantness...is immeasurable” after hearing a clip of Cruz criticizing Democrats for whining about Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) being silenced on the Senate floor. In contrast, Matthews showcased the utmost affection for Democratic Senator Tim Kaine (Va.) and inquired about his well-being since Kaine and Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election.

After Sean Spicer's first few weeks on the job, he's become one of the targets for the “mainstream media” in their many attempts to smear and bring down the Republican occupant of the Oval Office. Along these lines, the press secretary was lampooned in a video posted on the GQ website Wednesday morning that contained 10 words he has mispronounced or misstated in his many hours at the podium, including such examples as “lasterday” instead of “yesterday” and “jordge” for “judge.”

Jon Tester is not a well-known politician who makes frequent appearances on cable news. But what the Montana Democrat lacks in familiarity he compensates by pulling off the most important liberal duty of all -- he shows that he cares. Really, really cares.

A full-court press by the left and congressional Democrats failed to take down the nomination of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, and the New York Times is bitter. Emmarie Huetteman and Yamiche Alcindor on the front of Wednesday’s paper: "Betsy DeVos, a wealthy Republican donor with almost no experience in public education, was confirmed by the Senate as the nation’s education secretary on Tuesday, but only with the help of a historic tiebreaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence after weeks of protests and two defections within her own party."

In a hilarious case of irony, The 11th Hour host and serial liar Brian Williams teed up guest Charlie Sykes on Tuesday to lambaste conservative media (like the one you’re reading) for being why no one trusts mainstream media in the age of Trump and alternative facts.

I’ll never understand why slamming white people and only white people is considered a joke. Furthermore, I can’t understand how liberals seem to do it so easily despite their claim “love trumps hate.” Both those things are on full display from just one line in the most recent episode of Fresh Off The Boat.

During an appearance on Fox News Monday night, former CNN host Piers Morgan offered a stunning rebuke to the media, calling out them out for being “in the tank of Hillary Clinton” during the 2016 campaign and openly hostile to President Trump after “their candidate didn’t win.” He then demanded that press show the commander-in-chief “more respect.”

The Syrian Assad regime has “killed at least 13,000 people since the start of the 2011 uprising in mass hangings at a prison north of Damascus known to detainees as ‘the slaughterhouse’,” according to an Amnesty International report covered by The Associated Press. This is the same regime that has used chemical weapons to control its own people. Despite all three networks posting the AP story on their official websites yesterday early afternoon (ABC was the last at 1:56 PM), the evening shows of ABC, CBS and NBC refused to mention this staggering report.

Liberal HBO host John Oliver sneered that he won’t let the “viscerally horrifying” Donald Trump ruin the creativity of his show. Talking to USA Today on Wednesday about the upcoming season of Last Week Tonight, Oliver complained, “I always believed he was going to do what he said, which is why I was so against him becoming president. That doesn’t make it any less viscerally horrifying.”

One abortionist is revealing his abortion religion – and one New York Times writer couldn’t get enough of it.

CNN Money tried to have it both ways on “Trumponomics,” blaming bad currency news on the new president the same day it refused to credit him for any positive impact on the jobs report. On Feb. 3, CNN Money blamed President Donald Trump’s rhetoric for a weaker dollar, but ignored the possibility his rhetoric positively impacted jobs in January. Maybe, that’s why Trump and others have dubbed CNN “fake news.” Both stories were labeled “Trumponomics.”
