Politico's magazine published an article with a surprising title: “The Media Bubble Is Worse Than You Think.” Jack Shafer and Tucker Doherty began with the 2016 election results, which was “not just as an embarrassment for the press but as an indictment. In some profound way, the election made clear, the national media just doesn’t get the nation it purportedly covers.”
The writers know they are working for a liberal media outlet with mostly liberal readers, so they unconvincingly tut-tut the notion that the media favored Hillary in their coverage.

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, Samuel Johnson famously observed. And the courts become a desperate refuge for liberals after they lose an election, political observers inevitably witness. Practically as soon as "controversial" Court of Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski was introduced on Sunday's 60 Minutes by reporter Lesley Stahl, you could see her pitch coming.

A story of enslaved women used solely as baby factories isn’t a dystopian idea anymore, according to the liberal media. Instead, critics argue, that situation especially resonates in “Trump’s America.” Wednesday marks the premiere of Hulu miniseries The Handmaid’s Tale, based on the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood. The story takes place in the Republic of Gilead, a reimagined United States conquered by Christian fundamentalists, and follows a woman named Offred and her fellow “handmaids” as they are forced to bear children for the upper class.

The Washington Post on Monday offered a glowing look at “icon” Bill Nye, celebrating his “movement” coming to fruition at this past weekend’s March for Science. Writer Caitlin Gibson sounded as though she was describing a rock star: “The moment he emerged onstage in a black jacket and red bow tie, the crowd noise hit near-deafening decibels. A sea of iPhones appeared, everyone stretching and jostling for the best possible photo angle. They cupped their hands to their mouths, screaming his name.”

Washington Free Beacon writer Stephen Gutwoski on Tuesday exposed the insanity of a New York Times op-ed complaining about all the guns in the National Rifle Association’s gun museum.

Although many media outlets have given Hobby Lobby a bad rap for its Christian values, Forbes today offered a refreshingly balanced look at what it means to be Christian company. And it’s not, as contributor Jerry Bowyer wrote, a “greed or misogyny thing”—it’s a “conscience thing.”

On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a pre-recorded segment in which CNN's Alisyn Camerota was seen speaking with six Donald Trump voters about how they view the President's performance, the New Day host cracked a joke about whether one panel member was calling President Trump a "maniac" and "insane," or North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

In case there was any doubt which side The New York Times favors when it comes to climate change opinions, the paper devoted three entire pages to “the effects of President Trump’s environmental policy.”
Just a day after Earth Day — on April 23 — the front page of the Sunday Review section of the Times featured an enormous graphic illustration of planet Earth and the headline “The Planet Doesn’t Have Time for This.” Beneath that, a subhead attacked President Donald Trump and warned the planet might “never recover” from his climate policies.

On Tuesday, the broadcast networks were delighted that President Trump decided to temporarily hold off on border wall funding in order to help reach a budget deal in Congress.

This year's annual far-left environmentalist Earth Day events were repackaged as "The March for Science."

While ABC, CBS and NBC on Monday and Tuesday found time to celebrate the return of “easy-going,” rested Barack Obama to the public scene, none of them covered the release of a blockbuster expose that reveals the buried secrets of the ex-President’s Iran deal giveaway.

It seems as if Hollywood can’t get enough of comparing our president to a certain German 20th century dictator. Liberal director Ron Howard added his contribution Tuesday, revealing to the Daily Beast that Trump inspired a Nazi character in his new television series about Alfred Einstein called “Genius.”
