Associated Press media reporter David Bauder wrote a story Tuesday that overwhelmingly praised CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley for being a “blunt evaluator” of President Trump. Most of the story channels the bizarre idea that these blunt evaluations are somehow not the opposite of an objective method. The lowest point is this completely untrue and unhistorical comment by former CNN reporter Mark Feldstein: "It's striking because it's such a departure from the traditional norm of objectivity that serious news anchors have always gone for over the last few generations."

The left’s anti-Trump marches won’t stop at the end of March. Following the success of January 21’s Women’s March, the organizers planned March 8’s “Day Without a Woman.” Falling intentionally on International Women’s Day, the day included strikes, abstinence from social media use and spending, and a protest outside of the White House.

The left’s boycott strategy doesn’t always work. Since the beginning of February, Ivanka Trump Collection has seen “some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand" president of Ivanka Trump Collection, Abigail Klem, told Ana Colon of Refinery29. Over the last several months, liberal media outlets have propped up the #grabyourwallet movement that created a list of retailers to boycott because they carry Trump family products. Those efforts particularly targeted Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. The Huffington Post’s Jamie Feldman highlighted the list, saying it is a “one-stop way to boycott the Trumps.” New York Times columnist Rachel Abrams praised #grabyourwallet’s founder Shannon Coulter in a lengthy piece that sympathized with her desire to shop “with a clear conscience.”

There is little doubt that the big economic news Wednesday was payroll and employee benefits giant ADP's estimate that the economy added 298,000 seasonally adjusted private-sector jobs in February. Over seven hours later, the New York Times did not have the news on its website's home page — or even at its "Business Day" business and financial news web page.

Late on Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, panelist and Brookings Institution fellow Susan Hennessey offered a jaw-dropping assessment that “the single biggest national security threat is climate change” as it’s been the reason behind many of the recent global tensions.

It is impossible to feel lukewarm about Lena Dunham. Like Hillary Clinton, the Girls actress and Lenny Letter co-founder inspires either deep revulsion or fawning acclaim. And that rift even extends to the liberal media world.

“Biblically responsible” investment opportunities are antithetical to corporate America, according to The New York Times. Times columnist Liz Moyer accused Inspire Investing’s new Christian friendly E.T.F.s (exchange traded funds) of being “squarely at odds with that of nearly all of corporate America” Feb. 28, yet just months earlier the paper praised E.T.F.’s designed around climate change alarmism. Moyer was quick to cite the regulatory filing of the new E.T.F.s, launched Feb. 28, that vaguely stated that the E.T.F.s would avoid investing in companies that have “any degree of participation in activities that do not align with biblical values” including “the LGBT lifestyle.”She claimed this did not align with corporate America because 92 percent of Fortune 500 companies have “nondiscrimination policies” pertaining to sexual orientation and 82 percent have policies pertaining to “gender identity.”

On Wednesday, all three network morning shows seized on false left-wing speculation that a brief power outage at the Statue of Liberty Tuesday night was meant to be a show of support for the “A Day Without A Women” protests planned for International Women’s Day. While the ABC, NBC, and CBS broadcasts knocked down those claims, hosts did use the incident as a way to promote the liberal demonstration.

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's All In with Chris Hayes, supposedly right-leaning Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin was at it again -- appearing on MSNBC to mostly agree with a liberal host -- as she joined Hayes in fretting over President Donald Trump's proposal for a government agency that tracks criminal activity by non-citizens. After oddly claiming that such an agency would likely be unconstitutional, suggesting that it would "create a mob mentality," Rubin -- who was even identified on screen as a "conservative columnist" -- took a swipe at Fox News, calling it a source of "nonsense" news consumed by President Trump.

Who’s the best woman to represent International Women’s Day? Why, Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood, of course. That was the thinking of the hosts of CBS This Morning on Wednesday. Naturally, the journalists offered softballs to the head of the abortion provider and repeated liberal talking points. Democratic donor Gayle King offered this easy question: “Some people have described it or called it a war on women. Do you see it that way?”

While the liberal media race to count those who miss work for “A Day Without A Woman,” here's a number they’ll likely overlook: 21 million aborted women. On Wednesday, International Women’s Day, feminist activists organized a nationwide strike to push liberal policy and “highlight the economic power” of women. The March 8 strike is the latest event by the Women’s March, a protest inspired by the election of President Donald Trump.

Media criticism of the current GOP health care bill has been swift, but ObamaCare’s rollout was met with unified and resounding support from these same networks. In his report on NBC Nightly News on March 7, correspondent Tom Costello included a clip of a George Washington University professor who claimed that “The losers in this are lower income people who need financial assistance to be able to buy coverage that’s affordable for them.”

On International Women’s Day, feminists are here to remind you that their morality is primarily driven from their genitals. Liberal actress Cate Blanchett proudly told Late Show host Stephen Colbert as much, on his March 3 show.

Eager to knock down the initial Republican proposal to replace ObamaCare, on her Tuesday MSNBC show, anchor Andrea Mitchell invited former Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell on the program to slam the bill for “moving us in the wrong direction.”
