If there was one thing that our politically divided country could agree on, it was the seriousness of drunk driving. But during Monday’s edition of The Lead, that common understanding took a back seat for CNN as they bemoaned that a so-called “DREAMer” was deported. “Last August [Jorge] Matadamas was charged with drunk driving and evading arrest. While in jail, he lost his DACA status,” reported Polo Sandoval, “[A] program which gave him a chance to live and work in the U.S. After seven months in detention, he was deported.”

During a press briefing on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned that if so-called sanctuary cities continued to hinder the implementation of federal immigration law, then federal law enforcement funds would be pulled. CBS Evening News pushed back against the Trump administration’s efforts by playing on the fears regarding, as anchor Scott Pelley said, “Who is being targeted.” Meanwhile, both ABC and NBC chose not to report on Sessions’ threat.

The broadcast and cable news shows raced to proclaim the stall in the passage of an Obamacare replacement as a “disastrous” failure for the Trump administration, with reactions ranging from gloating exaggerations to blatant falsehoods.
“The President who fancies himself a master of the art of the deal is still an apprentice when it comes to politics,” CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley chortled on March 24.
“This is an embarrassing defeat for President Trump and for Paul Ryan,” NBC Senior Politics Analyst Mark Halperin on the March 24 Nightly News.

In advance of the Monday evening premiere of the CBSN Originals documentary Gender: The Space Between, CBSNews.com published propaganda pieces promoting the radical left’s perverted LGBT agenda. The articles’ liberal narratives, devoid of any conservative counterbalance, provided another example of the media’s activist approach to covering the revolution to redefine gender and normalize all permutations of sexual proclivity.

Taking a break from tweeting against the President Donald Trump, comedian Sarah Silverman lashed out at a new target: “evil” banks and “BIG OIL.”
"As long as my money is in a big bank, I am part of the problem,” Silverman argued. “And those banks are investing in big oil. They’re scratching each other’s balls.”
Why was Silverman so upset about banks? Because of the Dakota Access Pipeline. She railed against banks and oil companies in a March 18 video op-ed for Now This News. In it, she sympathized with fellow pipeline opponents who felt “helpless” because Trump recently approved construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

CBS This Morning on Monday offered a schizophrenic defense of ObamaCare, insisting that the plan is just fine. However, the solution to keep it from “exploding” is “more subsidies and more regulations.” Co-host Gayle King introduced Bloomberg journalist Shannon Pettypiece to do a “reality check on some of the strongest GOP criticism.”

Predictably, Univision has also now joined the liberal media parade in defense of taxpayer funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and National Public Radio (NPR), with a totally one-sided report that is short on facts, as well as laden with omissions and laughable fallacies.

On Monday, the network morning shows mysteriously discovered a newfound respect for President Trump’s social media postings after he took to Twitter over the weekend to lay blame for the failure of health care legislation on the House Freedom Caucus and conservative activists. The hosts and correspondents on the NBC, ABC, and CBS broadcasts were gleeful as they touted the “blame game” and “recriminations” occurring within the Republican Party.

While the liberal media has portrayed the tabling of the ObamaCare replacement bill as a “hugely embarrassing” political failure for President Donald Trump, there is one thing they aren’t doing – calling it a missed opportunity to rescue Americans who have been hurt or burdened by ObamaCare.
However, there was a time back in 2010, when liberal reporters were saying something entirely different. After Republican Scott Brown took over “Ted Kennedy’s seat” and was poised to cast the deciding vote that would kill ObamaCare the liberal media feared for the fate of President Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation.
The following is just some of the most egregious examples of the liberal media anxiously worrying about a possible defeat of ObamaCare.

Friday night on Fox News’ The First 100 Days, host Martha MacCallum interviewed the attorneys defending one of the illegal immigrants accused of raping a 14-year-old girl at Rockville High School, just over a week ago. The two lawyers defending 17-year-old Jose Montano blasted what they called the “sensationalized” coverage of the story, (despite the media blackout of its coverage). The primary defense attorney even blamed Trump’s immigration policies for spurring undue outrage at the story.

The liberal media want it both ways. While they laugh at those who call Democrats the “abortion party,” they, at the same time, insist that the party unabashedly support abortion – no matter the cost. On Monday, The New York Times published an op-ed with the headline “To Win Again, Democrats Must Stop Being the Abortion Party.” Written by Thomas Groome, professor of theology and religious education at Boston College, the piece argued that Democrats should change their tone on abortion to win back the Catholic vote.

Nursing its liberal obsession with “income inequality,” the New York Times made it the cover story of its Sunday Book Review. Economist Angus Deaton, who won the Nobel in 2015, penned the lead review of “The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution – Why Economic Inequality Threatens Our Republic,” by Ganesh Sitaraman, under the headline “When the Rich Get Richer.” The online headline: “It’s Not Just Unfair: Inequality Is a Threat to Our Governance.” But Deaton showed an incredible lack of understanding of American wealth in a previous statement: “If you had to choose between living in a poor village in India and living in the Mississippi Delta or in a suburb of Milwaukee in a trailer park, I'm not sure who would have the better life."
