On Thursday, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi teed up a softball interview with left-wing California Congresswoman Maxine Waters by wondering: “You think that Donald Trump should be impeached over Russia and anything else – any other discussion distracts us from that investigation. You still hold true to that?”

Twelve. That’s how many records the Dow Jones Industrial Average set in a row in 2017. Twelve new records, 12 sessions in a row.
Seven. That’s how few stories three combined networks devoted in their evening broadcasts to the record run that sent stocks so high, the market followed by closing above 21,000 for the very first time.

Now that the Trump-Russia fake news story is crumbling as Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi warned liberals, how can the mainstream media continue to report on this fact-free topic? Simple. By invoking masters of fiction in the form of spy novelists. Therefore it is appropriate that Associated Press writer Hillel Italie consulted several of those fiction writers to comment on fake news fiction.

In “A Day Without a Woman” coverage, the liberal media said more by what they didn’t report than by what they did report. On Wednesday, feminist activists organized a nationwide strike to push liberal policy and “highlight the economic power” of women. Following the event, the broadcast networks praised “A Day Without a Woman” for standing up for “women’s rights.” But not once did ABC, CBS or NBC mention the pro-life women the event failed to represent nor the millions of women missing today because of abortion – despite an outcry by several pro-life leaders.

On Thursday's New Day, CNN personalities Chris Cuomo and Angela Rye demonstrated that there's just no convincing liberals that giving men a right to demand entry into women's restrooms, changing rooms or shower rooms is a bad idea, even if you cite examples of sexual predators taking advantage of liberal access policies to victimize women and girls. During a debate over efforts by the Texas legislature to require people to use public restrooms in schools and public buildings that correspond to their birth gender, both host Cuomo and CNN commentator Rye dismissed conservative CNN commentator Ben Ferguson specifying four examples of men filming women and girls in department stores, with Rye even chuckling about the four examples supposedly being an insignificant number.

Violent leftist mobs driving conservative speakers off campus is a story often sidelined by a liberal media reluctant to make the enemies of their conservative enemies look bad. An exception was made on the Monday, March 6 episode of the PBS talk show Charlie Rose, featuring New York TImes columnist Frank Bruni as a guest discussing the physical attacks committed during conservative scholar Charles Murray’s failed attempt to give a talk at Middlebury College in Vermont.

In another case of liberal nastiness, TBS's Full Frontal host Samantha Bee mocked a young man at last month’s CPAC conference for having “nazi hair.” But today, the man’s sister shot back at Bee on Twitter, telling her he actually had stage 4 brain cancer. Whoops!

In an interview during the 7 a.m. ET hour of CNN's New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota asked Oregon Democratic Senator Jeff Merkely if he will "write a thank-you letter Senator Tom Cotton for sounding like a Democra" in response to the Arkansas Republican senator tweeting early Tuesday morning warning House Republicans that if major changes aren't made to their proposed Obamacare replacement, it will not pass in the Senate.

Illegal border crossings have plummeted since Donald Trump took office, down a considerable 40 percent. The hosts of NBC’s Today, despite a four hour-long show, didn’t bother covering the development. CBS This Morning managed 24 seconds. ABC’s Good Morning America offered a scant 19 seconds. The three morning shows have an available eight hours of air time.

For someone who's supposedly anti-bullying, Dan Savage sure likes to bully conservatives and Christians a lot. In his latest “Savage Love” podcast, the liberal gay activist went on a tirade against First Lady Melania Trump, calling her “ugly on the inside,” and a host of other names, according to TheWrap.

Lynne Stewart, whose long legal and illegal career included representing domestic terrorists in the 1980s and relaying a convicted Islamic terrorist's commands to his underlings last decade, died on Tuesday. The Associated Press's Larry Neumeister went out of his way to conceal and sanitize important aspects of Stewart's life and beliefs in his Wednesday afternoon obituary.

In a new ad to promote his MSNBC show MTP Daily, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd took to a basketball court and discussed the rules of the game. He then fretted: “But what about our politics, are there any rules anymore? And if so, will anybody play by them?” Todd assured viewers that he and his liberal network would be objective enforcers: “These days, politics could use a little refereeing. And we’re not afraid to blow the whistle.”

Disney chief Bob Iger says there’s no bias at ESPN and ABC News is “extremely fair,” and apparently says it with a straight face. He may even believe it. As the head of a company that believes it appropriate for characters in children’s movies to “explore their sexuality,” Iger’s bound to have a pretty warped perception of things.

On Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, actor and former Obama staffer Kal Penn appeared to talk about his new show Designated Survivor. Since he plays the White House Press Secretary on the fictional show, Kimmel asked Penn if Sean Spicer influenced his acting at all. Penn took that opportunity to mock Spicer as a joke and praise the former press secretary, Josh Earnest, as a more honorable mentor that influenced his role.

It’s not everyday that a payroll jobs analysis “crushes” expectations by coming in 100K above the forecast. So when it does, it should be big news. And it was for some media outlets, but not to the broadcast networks. All three evening news programs: CBS Evening News, NBC Nightly News and ABC World News with David Muir said nothing about the latest ADP report on March 8.
