After a lengthy career as an NBC/MSNBC analyst spent trashing conservatives and admiring Democrats, so-called Republican Nicolle Wallace is finally being rewarded with her own show. Wallace’s show Deadline: White House will debut on Tuesday, and she fits the bill of an “MSNBC Republican” to a T. The former McCain-Palin campaign senior advisor, according to the New York Times, didn’t even vote for the candidates she worked for has displayed that kind of disloyalty as a TV talking head.

Conservative actors in Hollywood are few and far between. Although some are afraid to express their political views for fear of ostracism, Antonio Sabato Jr. is not one of them. On Monday, GOP Strategist Charles Moran confirmed the news that Sabato will challenge Democratic incumbent Julia Brownley for a seat in California’s 26th congressional district. His platform will focus on veterans and substance abuse.

In the world of liberals, only their personal anecdotes matter and can’t be challenged. On CNN’s New Day early Tuesday morning, liberal co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo invited colleagues Brian Stelter and Bill Carter to laud ABC comic Jimmy Kimmel for his health care position that “no one should be able to dispute.”

On Tuesday's New Day, during a discussion of the legal battle over the Trump administration's efforts to implement a travel ban targeting several predominantly Muslim countries, CNN co-host Chris Cuomo claimed that there was "BS" in the administration perceiving more danger from illegal immigrants and Muslim immigrants, and claimed that Trump had "called all Muslims bad people." And, even though CNN and other dominant left-leaning media sources are in the habit of cherry picking examples of black suspects being killed by police officers while ignoring the many more white suspects who are also killed by the police, -- leading many, including some journalists, to believe most cases involve blacks -- Cuomo accused President Donald Trump of "cherry picking" cases of illegal immigrants committing crimes to exaggerate the danger.

Though the networks on Tuesday were excited by the “dramatic” and “explosive” testimony of Sally Yates, only CBS This Morning bothered to show Ted Cruz hammering the ex-Justice Department official about the legality of Donald Trump’s travel ban. Co-host Norah O’Donnell described how the Republican called out Yates:

Leave it to Lena Dunham to make weight loss political. After US Weekly used her photo in a story about “20 Slimdown Diet Tips Stars Are Using,” the liberal actress and writer—a noted critic of body-shaming and dieting—responded with some characteristic political snark.

Personal anecdotes suddenly matter to the left when talking about health care. After late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel went on an emotional rant last week for his sick child over the GOP’s health care bill provisions, the media rewarded him with gushy praise over the “brave” admission, using it as a launch pad to attack Republicans with for getting rid of ObamaCare. Well Monday night Kimmel was back at it again, this time personally targeting specific Republicans and conservative outlets over their criticism of his sob story’s appeal to emotion over hard facts.

April marked the lowest unemployment rate in a decade, but that didn’t stop one NBC news show from spending far more time covering jobs being lost to Mexico.

“Hiring picked up,” that month according to CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley. All three broadcast network evening shows reported the “positive” jobs report which the Bureau of Labor Statistics released May 5. But the evening shows spent very little time on it that night even though the national unemployment rate dipped to 4.4 percent — the “lowest in ten years.”

On Friday, the government reported that the economy added a seasonally adjusted 211,000 jobs, and that the unemployment rate dropped to a 10-year low of 4.4 percent. The day's press coverage had three noticeable highlights. The first was the headline at the Associated Press's coverage — "US JOBS DATA SHOW SOME SCARS FROM RECESSION FINALLY HEALING."

The Washington Post sounded the bias alarm on the front page of Tuesday’s paper. Sinclair is buying some powerful local TV stations from Tribune, “raising questions about content.” Reporter Todd C. Frankel worried “The deal also has energized long-running speculation that the quiet company has ambitions to be the broadcast world’s Fox News.” Frankel laughably claimed partisan coverage "remains mostly unheard of in broadcast TV."

After Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt chose not to renew the contracts of several members of EPA’s Board of Scientific Counselors, ProPublica falsely claimed he fired them. “Trump admin fires scientists on EPA review board. And plans to replace them w/ reps from polluting industries,” ProPublica tweeted on May 7. On May 9, ProPublica issued a correction.

The New York Times can make even a local museum opening into an opportunity to fight the Trump presidency. On Sunday, Nick Madigan came out fighting for science under a loaded partisan headline: “A Shrine to Science Rises as Science Comes Under Siege.” Madigan was ostensibly marking the long-delayed opening of a sleek new science museum in Miami with a 500,000-gallon aquarium tank, but waited only three paragraphs before lighting into Florida’s Republican governor for insufficient panic in the face of the theory of “climate change,” the emergency nature of which the paper has been trying to convince the public of for years (that is, when it’s not appealing to its well-heeled readership by sponsoring $135,000 tours “Around the World by Private Jet” on a Boeing 757.)

The showrunner of ABC’s Quantico said they would be “substituting Trump for terrorism” but in the May 5 episode, titled “RAINBOW,” they manage to combine both. A character with a name almost identical to real life President Trump supporter and tech mogul Peter Thiel is used in a terror plot to hijack airplanes using a money sharing app.

More terrible news broke out of North Korea overnight where the murderous regime detained another American on questionable charges. Every one of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) reported on the development Monday morning. Sadly both CBS and NBC decided to move on from the story come evening. For CBS Evening News, they decided it wasn’t worth the time. But they did find time for a report highlighting anti-U.S. protests.

After almost four months since former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ warning to the White House regarding then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was illegally leaked to the press, Yates testified before a Senate sub-committee Monday, where she confirmed that’s what she did. The media played up the hearing, expecting there to be a “bombshell.” In reality, she simply offered a detailed retelling of her actions. But that didn’t stop the Big Three networks from going nuts later that night.
