Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Last Word on MSNBC, Daily Beast foreign editor and MSNBC political commentator Christopher Dickey aimed snide name-calling at White House advisor Steve Bannon. After calling him a "snob," the liberal commentator also remarked that he looks like a "slob" and a "dirty old man," as he went along with host Lawrence O'Donnell's suggestion that the Donald Trump advisor looks homeless. O'Donnell described Bannon as looking like he "slept in the subway last night" as he wondered how people in France view the Donald Trump advisor: "So what do they think when they see the guy who looks like he slept in the subway last night and he's the one who's talking to the President?"

The perpetually outraged Brian Stelter is outraged yet again. After Donald Trump lambasted CNN and the “fake news media” at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Friday, Stelter fumed, “The demagoguery continues. This was all about us versus them. I think we heard it in almost every sentence. Us versus them.”

CBS This Morning’s Gayle King on Friday reveled in Tom Cotton being booed at a town hall meeting this week. Talking to the Senator, she pressed for all the details: “Senator Cotton is joining us now at the table with his screams of 'do your jobs' still fresh in your ears I'm sure.

On Thursday, The New York Times launched a new marketing campaign by releasing a TV ad set to air during Sunday’s Academy Awards with the tag line, “The truth is more important than ever,” seemingly taking a jab at President Donald Trump. Given the paper’s blatant liberal bias and willingness to report fake news stories, the notion that the Times is the arbiter of the “truth” is laughable.

Just how degraded is the language we use in public discourse? Consider: an anchor on a major news network didn’t bat an eye Friday when a guest claimed it is a “civil rights issue” when a fraction of a percent of students don’t want to pee the way nature intended.

Donald Trump’s administration has been slammed with at least one “fake news” story a day for the last 33 days. That, according to a new list compiled by The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard. In Friday’s edition of his “Washington Secrets” column Bedard reported “President Trump’s claim that he’s been the subject of false and ‘fake news’ stories has been mocked by an eye-rolling media, but a Secrets analysis of Trump coverage reveals that Team Trump have been hit with an average of one false, distorted or denied story a day. Starting on the eve of Inauguration Day, there have been at least 33 often widely reported false stories about the president and his team.”

If your daughter is uncomfortable with seeing male genitals while undressing in the school locker room, that’s the fault of her ‘intolerant’ parents, said CNN anchor Chris Cuomo Thursday. After President Trump reversed an Obama order Wednesday, that forced schools to allow transgender students to use whatever bathroom and locker room they wished, the media went nuts, decrying the reversal as “cruel” discrimination. New Day anchor Chris Cuomo went on a Twitter tirade Thursday, arguing with conservatives over the bathroom order, even blaming parents for being “intolerant” because they want their daughters to change in female-only locker rooms at school.

Men are big, mean Neanderthals who degrade women and won’t even let them stand up and talk. First came the U.S. Senate President Neanderthal Mitch McConnell. And now Jameis Winston, quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is the latest Neanderthal to be outed by the left-stream media.

In June, the City of Philadelphia, in what was hailed as a "historic moment for public health," passed a deliberately misnamed 1.5-cent per ounce "soda tax." What anyone with a lick of sense could have predicted would happen is happening, and the national press is mostly ignoring the tragic results.

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.”

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.

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.”
