Last night the ultra liberal campus of U.C. Berkeley erupted in violence after an estimated 1,000 students came out to protest Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, who was invited to speak by the school’s College Republicans. The crowd quickly turned into a mob when they began setting fires, throwing smoke bombs, breaking windows and punching Trump supporters. But instead of accurately identifying the crowd as a liberal, left-wing mob, ABC, NBC, and CBS refused to describe the crowd as liberal, saving the "conservative" and “controversial” labels for Yiannopoulos.

Just a couple of weeks into his administration, President Trump has used the G-word – something his predecessor did only reluctantly and the media continue to refuse to do. At the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, Trump mentioned the threat to religious minorities (Christians) under ISIS and in other Muslim majority nations, calling what’s happening “genocide.”

California’s “exceptional drought” isn’t exceptionally bad any more. Winter storms have been good for the state, pulling it out of the worst rating from the U.S. Drought Monitor. However, this “huge improvement” barely registered with the broadcast networks that had blamed “climate change” for the crisis.
CNN.com reported on Jan. 26, that “California’s drought is almost over.” For the first time in 36 months, no part of California was under “exceptional drought.” It also showed that only a small portion of the state still in “extreme drought,” but cautioned the drought is not “officially over” yet. But with nearly twice the normal amount of snowpack for the time of year, there were reasons for optimism.

On Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, during a discussion of White House press secretary Sean Spicer complaining about the media calling President Donald Trump's restrictions on immigration a "Muslim ban," CNN political commentator Errol Louis repeated a story that has turned out to be a hoax that the Iraqi mother of an American citizen died in Iraq because she was barred from traveling to the U.S. for treatment. The story in question has since been exposed as a fabrication, as the woman died several days before the restrictions were imposed. Louis: "All of the stories that have been done by this network, by other news organizations, finding who these people are -- these so-called 'bad people' who had to be kept out and finding out that they're children, they're elderly people, they're patriots, they're members of the military, they're, you know, grandmothers. They're people who in at least one tragic case wasn't able to come here for medical treatment, and died, you know."

Kicking off NBC Nightly News on Wednesday, the network seemed to bizarrely come out against the Donald Trump administration for “officially putting Iran on notice” following an unsanctioned ballistic missile test on Sunday that violated UN resolutions. “National Security Adviser Michael Flynn accusing the Iranians of defying the UN. Did they do it?,” questioned anchor Lester Holt in the opening tease. Kristen Welker’s entire report cast doubt on the administration’s claims while warning of a dire outcome.

Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Newsweek writer! Newsweek senior writer Kurt Eichenwald admits that President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, is "eminently qualified." However, he angrily proclaims that this nomination must be stopped because of a need for vengeance. Eichenwald doesn't try to hide that as an ulterior motive. In fact, he absolutely obsesses over it.

CNN’s immediate reaction to President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court Tuesday night was surprisingly neutral, in fact, they almost seemed to laud the pick and the presentation. But later that night, the outlet’s Don Lemon seemed desperate to hammer the president as he grilled his panel on the attendance of Trump’s sons Don Jr. and Eric. “Some reporters also tweeted pictures of them speaking with Senator Orrin Hatch,” he warned, “What do you make of their attendance?”
