White House Political Adviser Steve Bannon appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday where he discussed the importance of American culture, among other things. But that didn’t sit well with some of CNN’s political analysts; particularly with David Gregory, who condemned Bannon on Anderson Cooper 360 claiming that “The language of the uniqueness of American culture is this kind of white nationalist language to me that harkens back to the kind of language we've heard before.”

With all the social issues plaguing our newsfeeds, abortion remains at the forefront. For the second time this season, NBC’s Superstore tackles the subject. On Thursday’s episode, “Wellness Fair,” a false rumor is spread around the staff that fellow store employee Sandra is pregnant and is debating getting an abortion.

After White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and chief of staff Reince Priebus offered strongly-worded statements on Thursday afternoon at CPAC condemning the media as “the opposition party” to the Trump team, Vice President Mike Pence offered an evening address to a boisterous audience. Of course, he lobbed some jabs at the media of his own.

President Donald Trump sent ABC and CBS off the rails Thursday when he made public statements about the efficiency of this deportation operations. Trump described the program as running like a “military operation,” which any normal person would understand was a figure of speech. But to ABC anchor David Muir it gave him license to fly off the handle and falsely claim, during the opening tease of World News Tonight, “Tonight, President Trump calls it ‘a military operation on the border.’ The immigration crackdown.”

On Thursday's CNN Newsroom, host Poppy Harlow repeatedly showed skepticism that there have been cases of men or boys taking advantage of transgender bathroom or changing room rules to commit sex crimes as she focused on liberal hysteria over the Trump administration canceling Obama administration rules mandating transgender students be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice. CNN political commentator David Swerdlick -- also of the Washington Post -- at one point even suggested that sexual assault victims and survivors should be expected to compromise with transgenders who want to be able to use women's bathrooms.

On Tuesday morning's MSNBC Live, Louise Mensch, though she claims to be a conservative, put forth what I suspect will be the left's core economic argument if the economy improves under Donald Trump. That argument: The economy is "fantastic" already, and Trump will have had nothing to do with whatever economic improvements over what is already "fantastic" we might see.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews compared White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on Thursday to Star Wars villain Darth Vader, even though “he’s a good speaker” albeit “a little strong but, you know, that’s part of the deal he’s got.”

On Sunday, NBC News has resorted to using children in videos to deliver statements criticizing to President Trump just one month into his presidency. Opening with a young boy eager about an outsider coming to Washington to bring people together, the series, “Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children,” then begins throwing cheap shots by using kids.

In a promo she does for the MSNBC channel on SiriusXM, Rachel Maddow claims she delivers the news "without fear or favor" -- but she sure provides useful cover to guests if they share her liberal politics. Such was the case Tuesday night when one of Maddow's guests was former CIA analyst Edward Price, who just quit the agency in a highly public way, accompanied by an op-ed in the Washington Post that laid out the alleged rationale for his departure.

Thursday afternoon, Morton County, North Dakota officials announced, roughly 24 hours after yesterday's 2. p.m. Central Time deadline, that "the main Dakota Access Pipeline protest camp is now officially closed." Outside of the major broacast networks, press coverage of the camp's imminent and now final closure has been and I suspect will continue to be light, as the holdouts' conduct has been injurious and disgraceful. In the final days, "protesters" who claim to be environmentalists exposed themselves as nothing more than pretentious, ruthless arsonists.

Thursday on Morning Joe, the discussion became heated very early. During a conversation about a clip of Stephen Miller speaking on Fox News, the topic of conservatives on college campuses arose because host Joe Scarborough tried making a connection between how Miller was likely treated versus who Miller is today.

Chief legal correspondent Ari Melber spoke in a clip played in the beginning of the segment concerning Miller’s Fox News appearance: “Steven Miller coming out last night and saying on a news program that the new ban will be just like the old ban . . . I can tell you he just served up the ACLU's opening line in any argument against the new travel ban in court. They will say, well, judge, you blocked the old ban for these reasons and the government has already conceded through Mr. Miller who is in charge of this process the new ban is basically the same so it should be blocked too”

Among the highlights for the first day of CPAC 2017, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and chief of staff Reince Priebus doubled down on their attacks against the media as the former referred to them as “the opposition party” having been “dead wrong” about the election to the point that life will “get worse every day” as the administration implements their agenda.

For many years, liberal pundit Alan Colmes often provided the “balanced” part of the Fox News Channel motto of being “Fair and Balanced.” That came to abrupt end when the 66-year-old former stand-up comedian, radio host and co-host of the Hannity & Colmes weeknight news and interview program passed away after a brief illness on Thursday.

Now that it has dawned on most of the leftwing opponents of President Trump that removing him from office via impeachment or the 25th amendment is very unlikely, what is left for them? Well, Jo Confino of the Huffington Post recommends consulting the writings of a Zen master for advice. Unfortunately, the recommendations offer little solace for the exceedingly angry diehard leftists as we shall see:

CPAC, currently going on just outside the Beltway in National Harbor, Maryland, has changed along with the conservative movement, believes Matthew Yglesias. Old-school CPAC, Yglesias contended in a Wednesday piece, was philosophically driven, populated by the sort of activists who “helped [Ronald] Reagan mount a primary challenge to incumbent President Gerald Ford.” In the past fifteen-plus years, however, it has become “to a substantial extent a live version of the conservative entertainment experience that one could also get on cable or on the radio.” In other words, it's now Donald Trump's CPAC, which “reflect[s] the reality” that conservatives are “older, whiter, and less educated than the population at large and [are] filled with a keen sense of nostalgia for the good old days.”
