Disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather is being honored by the “legacy” media again, in an interview with Ana Marie Cox for this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine. Cox can’t describe what actually brought Rather his disgrace, only that he was an “early target of internet fact-finding.” As if George W. Bush wasn’t a target of Rather’s?

Cox treats him like a Wise Man on the future of journalism, as if asking the makers of the Titanic about the future of shipbuilding:

Susan Sarandon is a big-time Bernie fan. But since Donald Trump’s win, Hillary Clinton supporters have harassed the actress so much that she's had to change her phone number. So much for liberal tolerance. On April 12, Sarandon joined the ladies of The View to discuss her role as Hollywood legend Bette Davis in FX’s Feud. But, inevitably, the election came up too.

CNN tweeted out an article Thursday morning fretting that kids will suffer undue harm if Trump’s EPA budget cut is passed. The long-winded article written by a children's advocacy group and hosted on CNN’s website, is full of hyperbole and dire warnings backed up by left-wing environmental “experts” that argue the EPA is a life-giving organization crucial to our childrens’ very existence. This flies in the face of actual government watchdog organization findings that reveal the EPA actually is one of the most wasteful government agencies.

As tax day approaches, the broadcast networks have refused to report reality -- that most voters want lower taxes. Providing middle class “tax relief” and simplifying the tax code were key elements of President Donald Trump’s tax proposal. News coverage failed to notice.

The New York Times on Thursday trotted out liberal favorite John Dean to make the comparison journalists love to hear: (Fill in the blank Republican) is just like Richard Nixon in Watergate. The headline darkly hinted about the connections: “He Has Seen It All Before” and described the ex-White House aide as “an expert on the abuses of presidential power.” Get it?

CNN's New Day on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump for spending over $21 million visiting his Mar-a-Lago estate, but excused the price tag of former President Barack Obama's golf and vacation outings. "The President is on pace to spend more money on vacations in his very first year than former President Barack Obama did in eight years in office," anchor Alisyn Camerota said.

The latest episode of ABC’s Designated Survivor made it abundantly clear that the conspiracy element of this show is merely a thin patina of intrigue allowing the writers to wipe away Republican congressional majorities and fantasize about the “progress” they could be making in the wake of a massive crisis. The April 12 episode doubled down on last week’s anti-gun rhetoric, mentioning “background checks” once every 3.8 minutes.

Readers who haven't recently ventured into the fever swamp known as the Los Angeles Times may have a hard time fathoming how utterly obsessed what used to the be the West Coast's paper of record has become with the threat to civilization known as Donald Trump. Once one understands how bad things have gotten, it will be easy to believe that one of its columnists, a Pulitzer Prize winner, actually tweeted the following early Tuesday: "Just wondering: did Trump ask United CEO Oscar Munoz to distract the world from the White House follies today?"

Oprah’s show Greenleaf, a drama featuring a Christian “megachurch” and the fallible humans behind it, has been all over the map when it comes to representing Christian values accurately. One minute, the show is depicting gay conversion therapy programs in a positive light. The next, it’s sending the message that Christians who don’t support gay marriage are “broken.”

Not even the fictional world is safe from the transgender trend. TVLand’s Lopez is one of the latest shows to bring up the ongoing fight for representing less than 1 percent of the population, but it may also be one of the few to take an honest look at how ridiculous it is for a change.

To cap off Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, the network spotlighted a study by a pair of Northwestern University law professors who claim the United States Supreme Court is a sexist workplace based exclusively on who interrupts who. “And at the Supreme Court, women broke the glass ceiling. Now, if the men don’t mind, they’d like to have the floor,” argued Anchor Scott Pelley during the opening tease. When the segment finally rolled around at the end of the show, Pelley quipped that “The first amendment guarantees the right to free speech, but is there a constitutional right to finish a sentence?”

Wednesday night’s episode of Survivor: Game Changers, “What Happened on Exile, Stays on Exile,” featured a shocking tribal council that saw gay man Jeff Varner out his fellow competitor Zeke Smith, who everyone knew as a gay man from the previous season Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X, as being transgender.

CNN’s Jim Acosta has become a prominent media figure thanks to the presidential campaign and is frequently blogged on NewsBusters. On Wednesday at Washington D.C.’s The Newseum, Acosta was unhinged, ruling it’s un-American to harshly criticize the media and apocalyptically spoke of Trump eradicating the media.

On Wednesday afternoon, news broke out of Washington D.C. that, “Conditions are so dangerous at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Washington, D.C., that the agency's chief watchdog issued a rare preliminary report Wednesday to alert patients and other members of the public.” That, according to USA Today. Despite the horrific conditions found in government ran facilities, CBS and NBC decided to skip the news during their evening broadcasts. ABC, on the other hand, did report the shocking findings.
