President Donald Trump attended his first summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) on Thursday. While there, he emphasized that all members of the organization should be paying the two percent of GDP obligation they agreed to, instead of just the handful that do. Back home in America, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed embarrassed by Trump’s demands and scolded him for it. “This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States,” Trump declared, but the networks didn’t want to have it.

On Tuesday, Randy Hall at NewsBusters covered how "the Associated Press hired a 'freelancer' -- who turned out to be 'a hardcore left-wing activist' -- to attend a 'closed press' fund-raiser for the GOP in New Hampshire." In other words, the wire service sent Melanie Plenda to the event for the express purpose of crashing it, despite the NHGOP's clear instructions. It turns out that the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, in covering the fallout from Plenda's sneaky, sloppy work, is perfectly fine with that.

If Dwight Eisenhower were alive, he might warn the Republican Party about the dangers of its conspiracy-industrial complex, suggested Jeet Heer on Tuesday. As for Democrats, Heer acknowledged that while some of them buy into conspiracy theories, especially juicy ones about President Trump and Russia, they, unlike Republicans, generally deal “responsibly” with “politically convenient, but obviously fantastic, stories.”

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Thursday called out USAA for ending advertising on Sean Hanity’s Fox News program. The company claimed it did not advertise on “opinion shows.” This is not true. Bozell issued the following statement:

Many years ago, CNN was the place people went to get the latest news. That has definitely changed, and the channel’s news coverage reached a new low on Monday, May 22, when CNN continued an ongoing discussion of the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey while dozens of people leaving a concert in Manchester, England, were killed by a bomb set off by terrorists.

On Thursday morning, CNN’s New Day linked President Trump’s frequent criticism of the liberal media to Montana Congressional candidate Greg Gianforte’s violent incident with a reporter Wednesday evening. Appearing on the morning show, The Washington Post’s Karoun Demirjian whined: “You’ve got this kind of culture of, you know, reporters are the enemy going on and it depends. You see a lot of Democrats pointing the finger at the President right now. Saying you created, you helped create, at least, this culture where people consider reporters to be, you know, a fifth column or something.”

Feminist writers have recently pushed for more and better representations of abortion on-screen. Now, they’re cheering on ABC’s remake of Dirty Dancing as just the movie we needed. “Dirty Dancing is, was, and will forever be a movie about abortion,” wrote Harper’s Bazaar contributor Kaitlin Menza. In the classic film set in 1963, protagonist Baby covers for dancer Penny, who is suffering from complications after a pre-Roe v. Wade illegal abortion. That fact is integral to plotline, as it sets the stage for Baby getting swept off her feet by dance instructor Johnny.

During Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET hour, MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin just naturally assumed that President Trump deserved blame for Montana congressional candidate Creg Gianforte assaulting a reporter: “And how much blame should President Trump get, considering some of the rhetoric that we’ve heard from this president and – well, before he was president – and from the candidate himself?”

Guilt by association. That’s what Andrea Mitchell believes. Despite the fact that Donald Trump is on another continent, the Andrea Mitchell Reports anchor thinks that the assault against a journalist by a Republican congressional candidate is an “extension” of the President. Talking about Greg Gianforte’s attack on Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, the MSNBC host connected, “There is so much hostility, frankly, to the press, a lot of it generated by the Donald Trump rallies.”

In southern Virginia, racial tensions are simmering over the fate of Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee statue. But one local African American farmer is not with the liberal protestors; in fact, he thinks they’re a big part of the problem. When white supremacist leader Richard Spencer led a rally in Lee Park, a “Love Trumps Hate” group counter-rallied. Afterwards, Chris Newman, owner of Sylvanaqua Farms, took to Facebook with a brutally honest wake-up call for the progressive protestors.

After Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte slammed a reporter to the ground yesterday, the media has been in a flurry condemning the violence and trying to tie Donald Trump’s rhetoric to the attack. During a segment on CNN Newsroom Thursday afternoon, conservative radio host Ben Ferguson dismissed the notion that Trump was responsible, before pointing out the hypocrisy from Democrats in supporting disgraced elected officials in their own party. But Ferguson wasn’t able to make his point because as soon as he uttered the name of one of these Democrats, the liberal panel exploded in anger and shut him down.

In yet another eye-roll-worthy segment on Thursday’s The View, host Whoopi Goldberg bragged about President Obama’s record with the media, again. After saying last week that the media was more biased against Obama than they were against Trump, Whoopi had more baseless analysis to give this week on Obama’s record with reporters.

Liberal news site Slate wants to talk seriously about the maternal death rate.

Why is that? Abortion. Yes, believe it or not, the liberal left wants to clarify that even though it’s a sad truth, abortion is “a vital aspect of reducing maternal mortality.”  It is ready to say that abortions should be done “with tremendous responsibility and humility.”

Did you know that Medicaid spending isn’t even a big deal? So says Sasha Pudelski, a spokesperson for of the DC lobbying outfit AASA, when she was interviewed by PBS’s William Brangham who didn’t seem to find anything wrong with that statement.
