HBO host Bill Maher was his usual nasty self on Friday’s Real Time. Joking about Cuba and America’s relationship with the communist country, he sneered that the United States’s decades-old embargo “means endlessly patching up their old DeSotos and Edsels with whatever they can scrounge, old tractor parts, chicken wire, the bones of prostitutes Rush Limbaugh killed on vacation.”

"MSNBC can't spell," joked a tipster on Saturday morning. There is was, posted since Friday afternoon at 3:42 -- a story headlined "The Monica Lewsinksy jokes are back." One could be making a pun, since President Clinton "finished in the sink." But there's no indication of a joke in the story. MSNBC reporter Jane C. Timm is deadly serious about this terrible trend of "bullying" Lewinsky with jokes about her fiasco of an affair with Bill Clinton.

Jane C. Timm actually boasts on her LinkedIn profile: " I cut my teeth in the industry working as researcher at the [far-left] Village Voice for investigative reporter Wayne Barrett and later as a national politics fact checker at Rolling Stone." A fact-checker at Rolling Stone would face a very serious problem, indeed, after their fraudulent campus-rape story...but maybe she could have fixed her own headine here.

The liberal opinion site that calls itself “PolitiFact” insists it’s just a “fact-checking” website. When choosing to assess whether a politician’s claim is true or false, their “About Us” page says they ask “Is the statement rooted in a fact that is verifiable? We don’t check opinions, and we recognize that in the world of speechmaking and political rhetoric, there is license for hyperbole.”   

With rare genetic exceptions, when it comes to humans, there is probably not a fact more verifiable than one’s gender. But guess what? On April 26, the website Mediaite carried the eye-grabbing headline: “PolitiFact Rules It’s Now Objectively False to Call Transgender Women Men.”

ABC and CBS's evening newscasts on Friday spotlighted the friendly transatlantic trash-talking between the British and American heads of state. However, the programs failed to cover the latest too-close intercept of American military assets by Russian aircraft. On World News Tonight, ABC's David Muir touted "the royal mic drop — the Queen and Prince Harry responding to the First Family's challenge" over the upcoming Invictus Games for wounded veterans. On CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley trumpeted that "it's not often that the Queen gets involved in a Twitter war. She and Prince Harry traded barbs with President and Mrs. Obama."

On Thursday, shortly after the government estimated that the economy only grew at an annual rate of 0.5 percent in this year's first quarter, Jeffry Bartash at Marketwatch.com commented on the especially weak performance in nonresidential business investment.

That category subtracted 0.76 points from GDP, the worst result since the second quarter of 2009, during the recession. Bartash, presumably based on real discussions he's had with real economists wrote: "Many economists doubt business investment will show much strength in 2016. A tepid global economic scene and a tumultuous U.S. presidential election marked by heavy anti-corporate rhetoric appears to have made business executives more cautious." What? "Anti-corporate rhetoric" affects the decisions of entrepreneurs, investors and businesspeople? Who knew?

WARNING! David Brooks has admitted that he lives in a wealthy bubble and to rectify that he plans to break out of his New York Times cocoon and travel down the Heart of Darkness to mix with the hoi polloi.

What caused Brooks to issue his bubble admission was the rise of Donald Trump whom he had previously discounted. So before getting down from his high horse to possibly mix with the peasants at your neighborhood sports bar Brooks, with a massive chip on his shoulder, declares his moral superiority:

A few months back, some maintained that Ted Cruz was ineligible for the presidency because, in their view, he wasn’t a natural-born citizen of the United States. In a Thursday article, Jeb Lund made an even more extreme argument about Cruz, suggesting that he isn’t even a full-fledged person. Specifically, Lund opined that both Cruz and his would-be running mate, Carly Fiorina, are “spectacular failed approximations of human beings,” and huge liars to boot.

Lund also contended that it’d be futile for Cruz to use Fiorina as attacker-in-chief against Hillary Clinton: “Leave aside institutional opposition to equal pay for equal work, forget opposing the re-signing of the Violence Against Women Act…skip over attacks on reproductive rights and ask who came up with the 25 years of ridicule of Clinton…If a quarter century of that bothered Republican voters, then Carly Fiorina is not the solution, especially when her idea of acknowledging a war on women is claiming that Hillary Clinton invented it…And if a quarter century of sexism and legislative scorn didn't bother Republican voters, then what single thing does she change in the slightest?”

George Mason University law school announced it would be renamed the Antonin Scalia School of Law in honor of the recently deceased justice. Yet even in death, the left and its allies at the Times won’t cease their attacks. Friday’s New York Times featured young reporter Nicholas Fandos, “University Critics Draw a Line at Naming Law School for Scalia.” The online headline was positively “fearful” of the change: “What’s in a Name Change? Politics, Some at George Mason University Fear."

ABC’s new Shonda Rhimes series The Catch is predictably following all the other Shondaland shows in pushing liberal agendas on primetime TV. This time, the episode “The Benefactor” propagandizes women in combat and the evil men who want to stop them.

On the one-year anniversary of the riots and systematic failures of Democrat-run Baltimore in Democrat-run Maryland, only CBS Evening News managed to acknowledge that anything even happened. ABC's World News Tonight’s only mention of Baltimore or Freddie Gray was a throwaway line in an April 22 obituary for the pop singer Prince, where correspondent Byron Pitts noted that “Prince was an artist and an activist, releasing songs in the aftermath of Freddie Gray in Baltimore.” End of sentence, end of topic, end of discussion. NBC failed to mention even that much.

Hours before the announcement that actor Will Ferrell would not star in a smear film portraying Ronald Reagan as a dementia-addled invalid, the women of The View discussed the potential movie. Liberal co-host Joy Behar insisted that the concept could be making a “larger point” and also repeated a smear about the 40th president. Speaking of Ferrell, she sneered, “He might be making a larger point about the fact that the man was in office with Alzheimer's and that reflects our political system to a T.”

Despite the fact that Google -- a multinational technology company that specializes in Internet-related services and products -- has announced it will serve as the official livestream provider during this year's Republican convention, liberal groups and civil rights advocates have called on the technology giant to sever any connection to the event, which will be held July 18-21 in Cleveland, Ohio.

According to an article by Tony Romm, senior technology reporter for the Politico website, the company's “mere presence at the GOP convention is sure to spark new opposition from liberal groups and civil rights advocates” due to Republican front-runner “Donald Trump's incendiary rhetoric.”

The networks reported – and enjoyed – former House Speaker John Boehner smearing Sen. Ted Cruz as “Lucifer in the flesh.” But they’re not noticing how Sen. Mike Lee fiercely denounced Boehner on the national Mark Levin radio show on Thursday night.

Only a year after cancelling The Reid Report in February 2015, on Friday, MSNBC announced that left-wing pundit Joy Reid would once again be getting her own show on the network, replacing Melissa Harris-Perry, who recently stormed off the cable channel following a racially-charged tirade against her employer. In a statement about the staff shake-up, MSNBC president Phil Griffin laughably proclaimed: “MSNBC viewers crave not only the facts, but also in-depth discussion and analysis from a range of perspectives. There is no one better equipped than Joy to lead this new project..."

New York Times campaign reporters Amy Chozick and Ashley Parker played into Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s feminist theme in Friday’s lead story, “Trump’s Attacks On Clinton Have Calculated Risk – Gender-Based Criticism – Democrat, With Eye on November, Studies Ways to Parry." The original lead was even more slanted in favor of the Democrat, with Clinton called “a trailblazing woman” which was changed in the final to “the first woman to lead a major party.”
