Adam McKay, a movie director, producer and screenwriter who was a creative force behind the proposed film entitled Reagan that was intended to depict the 40th president of the United States as suffering from the effects of Alzheimer’s during his second term, was said to be “in the middle of a truly bizarre 'nontroversy'” in an article on the Daily Beast website.

Before interviewing McKay, Marlow Stern -- an entertainment editor and writer for the website -- noted that the project was to star liberal comedian Will Ferrell as Ronald Reagan, who was convinced by an intern that he was still an actor now playing the occupant of the White House.

Hillary Clinton’s road to the Democratic nomination may be strewn with stones like Bernie Sanders, who won the West Virginia primary Tuesday night. But Clinton can always count on rock-solid support from her base at the New York Times. On Wednesday’s front page, reporter Steven Lee Myers mounted an “everyone-does-it” defense of Hillary in her ongoing controversy over classified intelligence documents on her private home-brew server while she served as Secretary of State: “Sensitive Email Routinely Sent As Unclassified.” Meanwhile, the Times and the broadcast networks have ignored the latest revelation in HRC's classified document saga: All the emails from Hillary Clinton’s top IT staffer, Bryan Pagliano, who set up her private server, have gone missing.

Journalistic love for Barack Obama certainly hasn’t gone away. Newsweek’s Twitter page on Tuesday hyped, “Has there been any president cooler than Obama?”  The magazine, which barely publishes these days, features contribution from a website called Quora. That article wondered, “OBAMA, THE FIRST POP CULTURE PRESIDENT?”

In case you didn't get the message the first or second time around, the Washington Post wants you to hear it again: Cool your complaints about the weak U.S. economy, because it's your fault.

To be clear, the problem is primarily with the Post's headline — "The economy’s real drag: Us" — than with Robert J. Samuelson's content, which at least gave American consumers credit for having "sobered up" as the reason for the increased savings rate which is supposedly holding the economy back. That said, the longtime Post writer missed a number of other key factors explaining why consumers aren't spending as they did in the decades before the recession.

On Wednesday's New Day, David Gregory actually pointed out the obvious about Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in the wake of her loss in West Virginia on Tuesday: "Bernie Sanders is exposing the weakness of Hillary Clinton as a candidate; as a front-runner within her own party. That's been true from the beginning." By contrast, the CNN newscast's Big Three competitors the same morning were hyping Sanders's win as merely a "bump" on Clinton's "path to the general election," as Norah O'Donnell put it on CBS This Morning.

In a contentious interview with Bernie Sanders during her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Wednesday, host Andrea Mitchell hammered the Democratic candidate for continuing to challenge frontrunner Hillary Clinton: “But isn't the bottom line...that she is now fighting a war on two fronts? She’s getting beaten up by Donald Trump on a daily basis....he has been embracing you, he is building you up. He likes the fact that you’re taking her down.”

In her latest article for Fusion, abortion provider Dr. Jennifer Conti celebrates the ‘badass’ ways of her friend and colleague, Dr. Diane Horvath-Cosper, who refuses to be discreet about the life-sucking services she provides. Horvath-Cosper recently made headlines for filing a civil rights complaint against her employer, MedStar Washington Center Hospital, because the facility allegedly wants her to stop engaging the media to tout her pro-abortion views.

Well, we can all thank Anheuser Busch for coming up big in the left’s perpetual hunt for something – anything! – to be offended by. In a recent Fusion article titled “Budweiser’s marketing department is out of control and needs to be stopped,” Jason O. Gilbert goes off against the decision by Budweiser to temporarily rebrand its label to say “America.” Although Donald Trump has jokingly already taken credit for inspiring the change, Budweiser, as noted by Business Insider, is an official sponsor for team USA and is looking to capitalize on the support received during this summer’s Olympic Games.

On Tuesday, Twitchy and a number of other fine sites found what amounted to be one of the more hysterical corrections one will ever see and involved none other than everyone’s favorite liberal newspaper, The New York Times.

It’s mid-May, which means it’s time for The Washington Post to unload the cheap-shot “investigative” stories on the Republican front-runner. On the front of the May 11 Washington Post is a story on Trump’s sex boasts….and sex life. The online headline is “From playboy to president? Trump’s past crude sex talk collides with his White House bid.“

Bill Clinton’s crude sex talk? Not front page news in the Post. Crude sex talk from JFK or LBJ? Not front page news in the Post. Remember the 2008 Post story on Obama's sex life?

According to the three network morning shows on Wednesday, Hillary Clinton’s latest primary loss is a just a “bump” in the road that will simply “prolong” the Democratic race. Bernie Sanders has now defeated Clinton in 19 states while the frontrunner has only prevailed in 23. Yet, on the Today show, NBC’s Savannah Guthrie insisted, “Bernie Sanders says he's in it to win it after defeating Hillary Clinton by double digits in West Virginia's Democratic primary. But that victory did little to dent Clinton's nearly insurmountable lead in the delegate count.”

On Wednesday, CBS This Morning offered a full report on “new developments in the controversy over whether Facebook censors news.” Co-host Norah O’Donnell noted: “Allegations of liberal bias are drawing scrutiny from a powerful Republican senator.... Senate Commerce Committee chairman John Thune calls the accusations serious.” In the report that followed, correspondent Jan Crawford explained: “South Dakota Senator John Thune is worried the conservative side is being suppressed on the social network."

Yep. It’s not your imagination: Sports journalism – long a bastion of reflexive liberalism – is only getting worse. Last summer MRC Culture presented 10 Reasons ESPN is MSNBC with Better Video. We can add dozens to the list. And it isn’t just ESPN.

Last month, a Pew Research Center blog post summarized recent survey data on how Americans’ views of “individualism, the role of government, free expression, religion and morality” differ from those of Europeans. The post prompted Kali Holloway of AlterNet to snark up a storm regarding the supposed cluelessness and backwardness of this country, especially the red states.

If you thought Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was virulently anti-Trump and anti-GOP, wait until you hear what TV Azteca’s Washington Bureau Chief, Armando Guzmán, has to say. “Trump is the Frankenstein of the American right, the monster who reinforces a party that for more than 25 years has fed off of hate and intolerance,” says the veteran Washington, D.C.-based Mexican journalist, in a column he has written against Trump and the Republican Party. Guzmán is the correspondent whose reports are seen domestically virtually every weeknight on TV Azteca’s U.S. subsidiary, Azteca América.
