Brace yourself, it's already begun -- The Purge. Only a week since Donald Trump's unlikely ascension to the presidency, he's already taking aim at the very heart of democracy, as those working in journalism so often claim they embody. Late last night, NBC Nightly News ran a story with this deeply troubling headline -- "As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency."

Thought experiment: Assume for a moment Hillary won the election last week. Yes, birds are chirping, butterflies flitting about and unicorns are leaving piles of mint-scented equality on everyone’s lawn.

Journalists at newspapers insist there is a wall of separation between the news reporters and the editorial writers. At The New York Times, it appears there is a yawning chasm between the "climate change" doomsayers in the newsroom and the newspaper's "Times Journeys" tour operators. Heather MacDonald blew the whistle on this corporate hypocrisy for National Review:

Thanksgiving is next week and you know what that means: Time for Hollywood to bash the holiday as racist! So, of course, ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat made some digs at America during Tuesday night’s episode “No Thanks-giving.”

Tuesday night’s episode of CBS’s NCIS, "Home of the Brave," wasn't very brave with its special illegal immigration subplot. In fact, they took the easy way out by creating perhaps the most sympathetic character imaginable to make their point on deportation.

In what could easily be described as a sore loser whining about the election results, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell started the final segment of Tuesday’s The Last Word by declaring, “Tonight, the presidential election is getting crazier and crazier. Hillary Clinton's lead in the vote has now passed the 1 million vote mark, as absentee ballots continue to be counted.” As a result, he dedicated the end of his show to scheming about how to overcome the Electoral College.

At a press conference in Greece on Tuesday, President Barack Obama claimed that when he came into office, "the economy was contracting faster than it did during the Great Depression, but we were able to intervene, apply lessons learned and stabilize and then begin growth again." Naturally, Elena Becatoros and Josh Lederman at the Associated Press and Gardiner Harris at the New York Times, all of whom were there, failed to report that statement and two others surrounding it, let alone expose how blatantly wrong Obama's claims were on so many fronts.

Donald Trump is a persistent critic of the media and is attacked for not granting them enough access. But there he was, three days after the election, the president-elect taping a long interview with CBS and 60 Minutes, where he could expect Lesley Stahl would push, push, push from the Left.

Stahl presented him as a terror for minorities. “I want to ask you all about something that's going on right now around the country. A lot of people are afraid. They’re really afraid. African Americans think there’s a target on their back. Muslims are terrified.” Trump accurately replied that’s “horrible,” but it’s “built up by the press.”

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson wrote a piece for Tuesday's paper headlined "I wish the president-elect failure on his cruel initiatives." It seemed like an eerie echo of Rush Limbaugh in 2009 saying he wanted Obama to fail (in passing his agenda), which sent liberals into a fury. Naturally, Limbaugh addressed the contrasting opinions on his show on Tuesday.

Yet another hire by President-Elect Donald Trump is drawing the ire of the liberal media, Tuesday evening. “Well, another one of those hires is a well-known critic of climate science who does not believe that fossil fuels are warming the planet,” announced an irritated sounding Scott Pelley on CBS Evening News, “His assignment-- staffing the environment protection agency.”

Not that head-scratching moments on MSNBC’s Hardball aren’t rare or anything, but Tuesday’s installment featured another cringe-inducing split-second by host Chris Matthews as he admitted to The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin and Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman that President-elect Donald Trump’s anti-war stances in the primary had been “tickling my erogenous zones.”

Remember how Hillary Clinton in her concession speech and President Obama in his first remarks after the election claimed they were determined to do all in their power -- and more! -- to make sure that Donald Trump succeeds?

Yeah, I didn't believe them either. Now we're seeing concrete evidence that it was empty rhetoric and the shivs are out. Any time a liberal tells you that all he wants to do is help, you deserve the inevitable con that follows if you fall for it.

On Monday’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough in a conversation concerning who the Trump administration would be appointing to positions of power and what policy achievements they would reach, warned his colleagues in the media not to be too quick in making negative determinations as they mistakenly did, time and time again throughout the election.

Following Harry Reid’s speech Tuesday afternoon on the Senate floor trashing Donald Trump as he did with Mitt Romney, MSNBC guest and liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz slammed Reid for loosely tossing around the accusation of anti-Semitism among Trump’s staff and suggested Reid check out far-left college campus for real instances of anti-Semitism.

Donna Brazile -- interim chair of the Democratic National Committee – gave a lecture on Monday at Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia, where she sharply criticized the Cable News Network for not letting her defend herself against incriminating emails released online and instead firing her after 14 years as a political commentator.

In addition, she told the audience at the small women's school that she never got on Hillary Clinton's campaign airplane or prepped the candidate for any of the debates. She also derided WikiLeaks, which leaked the “damning emails,” by repeatedly calling the organization “WikiLies.”
