Univision's coverage of the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court managed to weave a grand tale about the fearsome nuclear option, while entirely omitting any mention of the partisan Democratic filibuster against Miguel Estrada.

Who better to opine about the need to “fire” Bill O’Reilly from his Fox News show? According to the liberals at the Washington Post, it’s the partisan Anita Hill, the woman who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment and excused Bill Clinton’s actions. Hill wrote an op-ed on Friday with this headline: “It’s Not Enough for O’Reilly to be Fired.”

Popular Mechanics downplayed the potential devastation of a North Korean electromagnetic pulse attack calling one former CIA director’s take “not realistic.”
Ambassador R. James Woolsey (and former CIA director) co-wrote an opinion piece for The Hill on March 29, arguing that “the press and public officials ignore or under-report” the threat of an EMP attack by North Korea.

The Democrats’ mid-term election hope, the man who may turn the Trumpian tide, is Jon Ossoff, a young progressive candidate for the Georgia congressional seat vacated by Tom Price. Ossoff hopes to triumph in the open primary in Georgia’s congressional district to be held April 18, and he has the whole of the New York Times reporting staff solidly behind him. On Wednesday, Trip Gabriel and Richard Fausset enthused, “Georgia’s Long-Silent Liberals Come Out for a Congressional Race," but that was only the latest bit of cheerleading.

Katie Couric unabashedly abandoned her “journalist” cover earlier this week to show solidarity for America’s largest abortion provider. On Wednesday, anchor Katie Couric interviewed “badass” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on “How to Raise a Feminist” at the Women in the World Summit held in New York City.

So how could the Washington Post Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler, possibly avoid awarding a bunch of Pinocchios on April 6 to Susan Rice for her recent flip-flop on the unmasking of Donald Trump campaign people? In a March 22 interview with Judy Woodruff, Rice denied any knowledge at all of this yet she later admitted to unmasking names in an MSNBC interview on April 4. Kessler acted all perplexed about the contradiction. He was so busy scratching his head over this that he somehow forgot all about the very obvious Pinocchios that should have been awarded while wondering Did Rice mislead on PBS?

Needless to say, the knives were out on MSNBC to attack the U.S. military’s airstrikes in Syria late Thursday night and early Friday. Guests Steve Clemons and Phyllis Bennis were quite unglued, frowning that President Trump didn’t gather “international and regional support” like Barack Obama did and doing the bidding of the Kremlin by arguing the strikes broke international law.

Friday morning on The View, the show started off with a fiery exchange over the U.S. missile strike in Syria last night. The panel was strictly divided, with conservative hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila fiercely disagreeing with liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin that the missile strike was unconstitutional.

Reacting to the air strikes ordered by President Trump, Good Morning America journalist Martha Raddatz on Friday assailed the “horrific chemical attack” by Syria’s dictator. Given that the war criminal Bashar al-Assad brutally massacred over 70 of his own people, the journalists at ABC might be embarrassed at how, through the years, they fawned over the “charming,” “intelligent,” “thoughtful” Assad.

First Ivanka’s clothing line, now Yuengling. Just prior to the presidential election, the owner of Yuengling beer Dick Yuengling, Jr. endorsed Donald Trump. Immediately, liberals called for a boycott of the company. The New York Times wrote about the endorsement and questioned the wisdom of Yuengling’s statements, “Will a Yuengling Executive’s Endorsement of Trump Hurt Beer Sales?” But according to the company owner, the boycott failed to harm his business. Yuengling joined a March 30, panel discussion at an event called "Meeting of the Malts VI" in Bethlehem, Pa. Danya Henninger, culture editor for the Billy Penn website, reported that he said sales were “down a little,” but stressed it was “nothing noticeable.”

With a lock on the media, the reflexive agreement of the elites, and a mammoth tax-eating government to play with, liberals tend to be insulated from the consequences of their ideas. But in the free market, when reality bites back, it bites back hard.

The pollsters at Gallup are reporting something that should be obvious. More Americans realize the media favors on party over the other. “Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults say the media has a favorite, up from about 50% in past years. Just 27% now say the media favors neither major party.”
Almost two-thirds (64 percent) of those who believe the media tilts toward a political party say it is the Democrats. Only 22 percent believe the media favor Republicans:

Friday morning following the U.S.’s overnight missile strike on Syria, the big three news networks seemed at a loss of exactly how they could criticize Trump for his actions. While NBC’s Matt Lauer and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos questioned the legality of bypassing Congress to authorize this strike, the networks largely stayed away from their usual overt attacks of Trump in their morning coverage. But NBC analyst Nicolle Wallace found a way to relate the Syria situation to Trump’s “Muslim ban,” wondering if Trump would change his mind on that as well.

Thursday night’s episode of The Catch was partially preempted by breaking news, but unfortunately, not long enough to cut off more than one brazen display of sexual depravity.

The liberal media have minimized it, but some business leaders are thrilled with President Donald Trump’s economic proposals. At the White House April 4, the president met with more than 50 CEOs and business leaders to discuss his economic agenda. New York Stock Exchange President Tom Farley was in attendance and praised Trump’s “business friendly” platform. “It was a really good morning, a really productive morning,” Farley said on Fox Business Network’s show Cavuto: Coast to Coast.
