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.

On Tuesday, MSNBC's Morning Joe turned to former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean to trash the Republican repeal and replacement plan for ObamaCare. Host Mika Brzezinski introduced the segment by reading off President Trump’s tweet concerning the bill: “President Trump marked the release of the bill with a tweet. Reading this. House just introduced the bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Time to end this nightmare.” She later proclaimed: "This is the nightmare. This is it! This 45 days has been a long nightmare and it's not over.”

Tuesday’s New York Times tried to surround the story of illegal immigrants with a full-page spread, “The Reality of Illegal Immigrants Who Live in the United States,” from reporters Vivian Yee, Kenan Davis, and Jugal Patel. The story was actually more balanced than the paper’s usual offerings on the subject (starting with that striking use of “Illegal” in the headline). But the story still included a striking, perhaps unintended admission of labeling bias. The Times actually admitted “undocumented” was a euphemism for “illegal,” even while the NYT uses it all the time, even making a shift in its style in 2013 to discourage the use of “illegal.”

In his first remarks this week to Housing and Urban Development (HUD) employees, Secretary of HUD Ben Carson called slaves “immigrants,” that had hopes for the American Dream, comments that sent the media in an uproar. From print to television to social media, journalists and celebrities alike condemned the remarks as extremely offensive. Yet the media forgot that former President Obama has also compared slaves to immigrants, and not just once, but several times.

The title for episode two of Big Little Lies, which aired Sunday, February 26, on HBO, ended up having a much deeper meaning than just competition among some of the mothers to have the most popular children, the best birthday parties, and to be the alpha mother ruling over all other moms at fictional Otter Bay Elementary School set in Monterey, California.

Members of the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill rolled out their replacement for ObamaCare on Tuesday, and it immediately drew fire from both the left and the right. But you really wouldn’t know that if you watching NBC Nightly News that evening, where their main concern was that of the liberals. The network allowed two minutes five seconds to slamming the bill from the liberal perspective while giving a mere five seconds to conservatives.

Wwhy are we all supposed to genuflect to The Washington Post and The New York Times when they publish breathless stories taking on the White House relying on their favored anonymous sources, those “senior U.S. officials”? After all, the Times put a columnist on their front page declaring that the press needed to be “oppositional” and defeat Trump since he was a “demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies.”
The Post imagines itself as forever taking down the latest Nixons. One anti-Trump column was headlined “In the angry face of Trumpism, media must speak truth to glower.”

On March 1, Reuters used a possibly Photoshopped photo from 2010 from the other side of the continent as it published a genuinely newsworthy story about a continental record-high temperature seen at an Antarctic base on the northern tip of that continent. The wire service's use of that not-credible or relevant photo, and the content of the posted article, attempted to tie this news to so-called global warming, but failed to explain the nonwarming-related meteorological cause of the high temperature reading.

Lacking some self-awareness, MSNBC host Chris Matthews opened Tuesday’s Hardball by comparing President Donald Trump to a “large” jungle animal causing “danger in the morning” when he “come[s] out to feed” (in the form of tweeting) to the point that Matthews is struggling to see Trump as the President of United States.

On Tuesday, Congressional GOP leaders unveiled their new health care bill that’s supposed to repeal and replace ObamaCare, much to the chagrin of liberals and some conservatives. CBS came out strongly against the proposal and backed up Planned Parenthood in their stand against the bill. “Planned Parenthood is saying no deal to a proposal from President Trump,” announced anchor Scott Pelley during CBS Evening News, “He said that he would keep funding the nation's largest family planning provider if it stopped providing abortions.

The penultimate fifth season of The Americans debuts at 10 PM EST/PST tonight (Tuesday) on FX. As I’ve written before, while the FX series humanizes undercover KGB operatives working in the U.S. on behalf of the Soviet Union, the show also illustrates the ruthlessness of Soviet communism and how the American Left in the 1980s helped advance Soviet interests.
