In Monday night’s episode of CW’s Jane the Virgin, titled “Chapter Fifty-Eight,” there were three, count ‘em THREE, references to Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign using random, snarky throwaway lines. Will the show’s star, Gina Rodriguez (Jane), ever be able to get over the surprise election results and get on with her life?

Following the release of President Donald Trump’s new federal budget last week, the liberal media was up in arms that Trump would dare to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. On Sunday, a CNN anchor asked the MRC’s Dan Gainor if it was “conservative revenge.” But The Washington Post on Monday had an even more ridiculous explanation. “Trump wants to defund PBS. ‘Sesame Street’ brutally parodied him for decades,” read the headline to an arts and entertainment article by Avi Selk.

Even when it comes to alien politics, CW’s Supergirl can’t help but insert its liberal thoughts in everything. This time, in an episode focusing on another planet on an entirely different galaxy, the writers felt the need to add a “Make America Great Again” dig. And it's just as forced as you’d think.

Capitol Hill was a hive of activity on Monday. The House Intelligence Committee conducted a hearing with FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers about the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. In the Senate, the Judiciary Committee conducted the first in a series of hearings in the confirmation process of Judge Neil Gorsuch. Both were major events on the hill but the Comey hearing drew the overwhelming majority of the network news attention, leaving one anchor to say it was “overshadowing” Gorsuch.

Netflix’s fourth Marvel series Iron Fist debuted on March 17th to, well, some lackluster reception, and I can’t say that I disagree. With an unfocused storyline, mostly dull characters, and some uninspired fight scenes, there’s barely anything redeemable in all 13 episodes. But the final nail in the coffin for this show would have to be the its swing-and-a-miss at anti-capitalist propaganda.

The Los Angeles Times published a front-page story Monday on Ivanka Trump that highlighted she was “complicit” in her father’s evil. The headline read: “She once made liberals hopeful - Ivanka Trump is now seen as 'complicit' in her father's agenda.”
Times reporter Barbara Demick promoted four radical-left artists from New York who started an Instagram page called Dear Ivanka to supposedly lobby her to mend her father’s ways. In one Instagram post, they used the dictionary to define their accusation. Ivanka’s involved in crime or generic wrongdoing:

New on March 20: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews mocked President Trump and his supporters for believing in an alternative reality. Trump, Matthews charged, is “no better than the weirdo in the basement who calls in the fire alarm just to hear the sirens going past.”

One never ceases to be amazed at just how low the left-stream media will go to denigrate President Donald Trump. Aaron Dodson, a writer for ESPN’s The Undefeated blog, went all the way to the ground to promote a gutter level attack on the Republican executive in chief. Part of a recurring series of stories on athletic sneakers, Dodson’s caustic post is a direct attack on American veterans as well.

On Monday, the liberal broadcast networks and cable outlets tag-teamed to ignore live opening day coverage of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to become the next Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, instead spending over 11 hours of coverage on the FBI Director James Comey, addressing allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

Katy Perry did more than just sing about kissing a girl and liking it. At its L.A. gala this weekend, the Human Rights Campaign awarded Katy Perry the Ally for Equality award for her LGBT advocacy. In her acceptance speech, the pop star spent ten minutes criticizing her Christian upbringing while championing “sexual fluidity.” And, predictably, the feminist media loved it.

Univision's advocacy for practically open-borders policy has hit a new low, in its totally one-sided coverage of California's sanctuary state bill, deceptively named the "California Values Act", now working its way through the state legislature.

The partisan journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday gushed over a new Obama administration book, touting its “real talk” and encouraging ex-staffer Alyssa Mastromonaco to lash out at Donald Trump. In contrast, this same network questioned the loyalty of ex-Secretary of Defense Bob Gates after he wrote a book criticizing Barack Obama.

A photo of a bullwhip in a guy’s butt? You paid for that. The movie about 12-year-olds having lesbian sex? Ditto. Oh, and did you ever get a thank you card for the $12K you gave that experimental theatre company to create a play about the “stigma” of abortion?

National Public Radio greeted the opening of the Neil Gorsuch confirmation hearings in typical leftist fashion: Nina Totenberg publicizing the complaints of feminist groups and failing to disclose the partisan background of the accuser, named Jennifer Sisk, who claims Gorsuch made insensitive comments about maternity leave in a class at the University of Colorado law school.
Alex Griswold at the Washington Free Beacon noted what Totenberg somehow didn’t find worth mentioning in her online story, Sisk's political background as a Democrat.
