During a rally packed with devoted supporters at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA, President Donald Trump spent extensive portions of his first 100 days speech torching the news media for their liberal tilt, using facts like the blockbuster April 19 Media Research Center study.

Saturday's CBS Weekend News filed a report in which correspondent Paula Reid fretted that some of the illegal immigrants rounded up for deportation had only been convicted of drunk driving, even though such activity is dangerous criminal behavior that claims the lives of thousands of Americans each year. And, even though the report ran a soundbite of President Donald Trump vowing to deport "drug dealers" and "criminal aliens," Reid seemed to think that deporting nonviolent offenders like drunk drivers was somehow contradicting this promise as she complained that arrests were "raising concerns."

Try though she may -- nay, fight though she persistently fights -- Senator Elizabeth Warren has a branding problem.

Granted, she's doing her darndest to change that. The title of her new book, for example -- "This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class." Not the more succinct "This is Our Fight" or, tighter still, "This Fight." Operative word here -- fight. As in, "Fighting the Fight That's Ours to Fight: One Feisty, Fiery Senator Punches Away for America's Embattled Middle Class."

Faith Salie, a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning and a comedic panelist on the snarky NPR game show WaitI Wait! Don't Tell Me!, penned a piece for the fiercely feminist website Jezebel . The headline was "Bill O'Reilly Didn't Harass Me, But His Viewers Did."

On Friday's CBS Evening News, and again on Saturday's CBS This Morning, correspondent Mark Strassmann filed a report highlighting a newly formed organization of liberal women in Georgia who are working to "turn the red state blue." He also forwarded their views without challenge as he recalled their complaints that President Donald Trump has been pursuing policies that are "anti-immigrant, anti-women and un-American."

The story is a revealing look inside the liberal media bubble. Over here at Politico is this headline “The Strange Psychological Power of ‘Fox & Friends.’” But it’s the sub-headline that provides the real look inside both the liberal media bubble and the left-wing mind. That would read: “Unrelenting positivity has a powerful warping effect on your thinking. So how is that affecting Viewer No. 1?”

The liberal site Slate was delighted with a new video message about the "war on drugs" produced by Green Point Creative. It’s not the same classic anti-drug message she famously delivered back in the ’90s, though she’s still got her frying pan and some eggs. But now it's about how the brown eggs get smashed by drug laws, not the white eggs. Get it?

On Friday (appearing in Saturday's print edition), the New York Times published its first column by Bret Stephens, the former Wall Street Journal columnist recently hired as a "conservative" voice. Its theme was that the political "hyperbole" about climate change doesn't match the underlying science — even if one trusts the underlying science. That alone was enough to send journalists into unhinged and often profane orbit.

Just as it’s exceedingly tricky to know the dancer from the dance, it’s awfully hard to separate Fox News Channel’s program content from its hypermacho, litigation-generating workplace. That was the word from Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall in a Friday post. In Marshall’s words, FNC on the air and FNC in the office are “almost umbilically tied…If you’ve watched Fox for years and you found that it wasn’t a hotbed of sexual harassment, pervasive racist attitudes and a generalized sixty-something faux-bro ‘alpha’ culture, you’d have to think you had been scammed, that the big screen talent were somehow hypocrites and frauds. It would be like finding out that Chris Hayes was a major libertarian who funded the Cato Institute and Club for Growth or that Joy Reid had secretly been advising Donald Trump throughout the 2016 election cycle.”

President Trump is skipping this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, but that hasn’t stopped the media from nevertheless hyping the event. At that same dinner on April 30, 2011, journalists thought it was hilarious when then-President Obama and comedian Seth Meyers lampooned Trump from the stage, while the billionaire businessman sat in the audience. The media loved it.

It's something most conservatives a year ago would not have imagined: the opening act of Donald Trump’s agenda in the White House contains a real whiff of Ronald Reagan. To be sure, there's plenty the Reaganites won't like -- talk of trillion-dollar federal building campaigns, taxing business at the border, etc. -- but there's plenty to applaud as well.​ Historian Craig Shirley has written another book on Reagan's political career, and he might have some thoughts on what Trump can do to succeed.

Someone needs to tell the folks at the Comedy Central cable television channel that in order to have the word “Comedy” in your name, you should actually be funny. A perfect example of this concept gone wrong aired on Thursday evening, April 27, when the low-rated channel debuted The President Show, which mostly consists of President Donald Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik sitting in the Oval Office with Peter Grosz as Vice President Mike Pence nearby.

In a Thursday opinion piece at New York Times, that self-described guardian of "Real Journalism," Bonnie Tsui devoted over 1,200 words to the racist term "Asian salad." What, you didn't know that the term was racist? Ms. Tsui, whose piece will appear in print in the paper's "Sunday Review" section this weekend, is here to set you straight.

NPR's new morning talk show -- out of D.C. station WAMU-FM -- is called 1A, for the First Amendment. So it would be embarrassing if the show came out against freedom of speech. On Wednesday, the show devoted an hour to Ann Coulter's canceled speech at the University of California in Berkeley. Host Joshua Johnson defended free speech, but the guests and social-media messages tilted toward the Left.

Johnson asked leftist professor Angus Johnston of the City University of New York: "But isn’t teaching students how to debate the Ann Coulters of the world part of the function of a university, I mean, it’s kind of like, you know, ‘You have to take Defense Against the Dark Arts to graduate’?"''

The mainstream media is starting to notice that there have been absolutely no results in the House (or Senate) Trump-Russia collusion investigations. One of those journalists impatient for results is BBC World News America anchor Katty Kay who asked the ranking Democrat of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, on the April 28 Morning Joe why there seems to be no progress in their investigation. All Schiff could deliver in reply was a meaningless word filibuster that revealed nothing in an attempt to divert attention away from the fact that so far the investigation is a big fat flop.
