 We're about to re-live the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings all over again, courtesy of HBO. The respected pay channel debuts Confirmation at 8 p.m. EST April 16. The movie casts Kerry Washington as Anita Hill, the law professor who claimed Thomas sexually harassed her in the work place.

Some of the real-life Republicans who played key roles in the film aren’t happy about the production. They cite an early version of the script they deemed unfair and floated potential lawsuits against its depictions. Who’s right? We won’t know until the film debuts, but here are four signs Confirmation may be heavily tilted in Hill’s favor:

For her final post on the blog “Public Editor’s Journal,” outgoing New York Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan described “Five Things I Won’t Miss About the Times – and Seven Things I Will.” The most memorable Won’t-Miss was “New York Times Exceptionalism: The idea that whatever The Times does is, by definition, the right thing. In editorial matters, this manifests itself as, ‘It’s news when we say it’s news.’”

Sullivan then listed the Times being slow off the mark on a series of leftist obsessions: the new fuss over the proof of tax evasion in the “Panama Papers,” the espionage trial of Bradley (“Chelsea”) Manning, and the Flint water crisis. “Excellent as it is, The Times is too often self-satisfied. If there’s a fatal flaw – as in Greek tragedy – this may be it.”

In the episode “The Marriage Doctor” of Last Man Standing, Mike Baxter's conservative daughter Eve has to prepare for a debate in which – shudder! – she has to take the liberal position. So naturally, she turns to her liberal hippy brother-in-law for some help learning “how to talk out of your ass."

Media coverage of Pope Francis’s Amoris Laetitia typically noted that it reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s opposition to gay marriage. Slate’s William Saletan acknowledges the literal truth of that reporting, but suggested in an April 8 article that the document contains seeds that will sprout into Vatican acceptance of same-sex unions, though he admits that process “might take centuries.”

Saletan argued that in time, the Church will extend Amoris Laetitia’s treatment of infertile heterosexual couples to same-sex couples: “This double standard, between homosexuality and other forms of infertility, is the cracked pillar at the foundation of the church’s policy against same-sex unions. It’s how Catholic teaching on homosexuality will eventually collapse.”

On Friday's CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, host Baldwin and guest Jackie Kucinich of the Daily Beast both seemed amused by reports that GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz got a negative reception at a New York Republican dinner, and, a bit later, Baldwin seemed to bristle at John Kasich because the Ohio Republican advised a college student at a town hall to avoid parties with alcohol to reduce her chances of being sexually assaulted.

Opening her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Friday, host Andrea Mitchell triumphantly proclaimed: “Tough crowd. It's crickets for Ted Cruz in Manhattan but Donald Trump is speaking their language at the big party dinner.” In a report minutes later, she announced: “Cruz had a terrible night at the Republican black-tie gala here for the state party..."

On Friday, ABC and CNN's morning newscasts hyped a Connecticut Superior Court judge's decision to let the families of nine Sandy Hook victims continue their lawsuit against gunmakers and sellers. On New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo echoed the language of the pro-gun control Brady Campaign: "A big development — a major win this morning for families of the Sandy Hook shooting victims: a lawsuit holding gunmakers and sellers responsible for the shooting rampage will not be dismissed."

For better or worse, the press, Wall Street and others routinely place a great deal of faith in the federal government's payroll employment estimates.

But when Republican Governor Rick Scott's supporters cited data from Uncle Sam's Bureau of Labor Statistics to defend him against an insufferably rude leftist who started screaming and cursing at him in a Starbucks coffee shop, Associated Press reporters Jason Dearen and Gary Fineout, in a story the wire service carried nationally, claimed that Scott could only "allege that thousands of new jobs" were created in the Gainesville area, even though the claim was based on the same data the press routinely accepts as gospel

On April 13, ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Tom Llamas devoted most of that night’s report to chilling death threats against the Colorado state Republican party chairman, angered at how Donald Trump failed to win any delegates at the weekend party convention. That one report, plus two minor mentions on ABC and CBS, is all of broadcast news attention given to these threats. But the broadcast networks have aired a collective 45 minutes, 30 seconds of coverage since Sunday of Trump’s post-Colorado complaints that the GOP nominating system is “crooked” and “rigged.” That’s 24 TIMES more airtime spent on Trump’s grievance about the process, vs. death threats against anti-Trump Republicans.

The MRC has spent many years documenting the liberal media’s bias towards climate alarmism, from warnings of an “inevitable” ice age, to misreporting 2014 as the “hottest year” on record.

As an expert on the media’s record of promoting fear of climate change, MRC President and Founder L. Brent Bozell moderated an invitation-only panel discussion on the subject featuring former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, climatologist Dr. David Legates and Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, host of a new documentary from CFACT: Climate Hustle.

On Thursday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC, the late-night host played into the typical liberal line, that conservatives and Fox News viewers are just a bunch of angry white people.  

After making some jokes about former contestants of The Apprentice denouncing Trump, Kimmel moved to the topic of Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly and her meeting with Donald Trump earlier this week.  Kimmel joked that the meeting reminded him of a “forced hostage” situation, before slamming both as only caring about “getting white people very angry.”

Political correctness insanity has been viciously mocked on South Park, but now it may also start taking a licking in the comics pages of your local newspaper.

On ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday, co-host George Stephanopoulos told Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus that the GOP was “breaking apart” and quoted Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to bolster his claim.
