Having handed over its already pretentious arts pages wholly to ethnic and gender-based virtue signaling, the New York Times certainly wasn’t going to let the racially charged Grammys pass without commentary. Jon Caramanica celebrated an onstage rappers' revolt while slamming Adele for beating Beyonce for album of the year, in “Dealing With #GrammysSoWhite," and Joe Coscarelli fanned the Grammy flames on the same page with a conspiracy theory, “Was Beyonce Robbed of Best Album?”

In what was a bit of a shock for what’s considered a sober PBS interview program, comedian and film director Judd Apatow substitute-hosted the Charlie Rose show on Monday night. And the director of movies like SuperBad and Knocked Up wasted little time in insulting Donald Trump as he declared: “I feel like he runs the country like he ran The Apprentice....And it’s a little scary isn’t it?”

When it comes to peddling galling amounts of liberal bias and misinformation, Univision's lead Washington anchor is on a roll. The latest blunder by anchor Enrique Acevedo came in his twisted portrayal of White House Director of Media Affairs Helen Aguirre-Ferré's comments regarding the racial and ethnic make-up of Trump's Cabinet.

In its latest cover story, Variety conducted a rare joint interview with all three network evening news anchors, Lester Holt of NBC Nightly News, David Muir of ABC’s World News Tonight, and Scott Pelley of CBS Evening News. Writer Brian Steinberg fawned over the trio of liberal media fixtures: “At a time when President Trump rails against the ‘dishonest’ media, and ‘fake news’ labels make consumers wary of the facts that do come their way, the venerable evening newscasts stand apart.”

On Tuesday, a CNN Newsroom segment strayed into territory that would make Chicken Little proud.

The Sunday newspaper supplement Parade Magazine has been an absolutely Trump-free zone since the election. The Obamas repeatedly came for softball interviews and cover stories, for example as they promoted a “working families summit” in 2014. One can guess the Trumps aren’t granting access, but the magazine staff is almost pretending they don’t exist. On Sunday, Parade spotlighted a different liberal couple on the cover with the words “LIFE IS GOOD: Tragedy. Courage. Resilience. Love. The story of MARK KELLY & GABBY GIFFORDS.”

Instead of discouraging them, Valentine’s Day only encouraged the liberal feminist media to tweet about “reproductive rights” (code language for abortion, among other things) this year. Esquire editor Sammy Nickalls began her Valentine’s Day tweet thread by telling men to gift women with “equal pay” and “basic human rights.” But she concluded that “reproductive rights” trumped all: “Your Valentine won't be able to stop beaming after you give her the ultimate gift: reproductive rights and access to birth control.”

Imagine New York Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks decked out in a Maquis beret as part of the Ivory Tower resistance movement against the evil TrumpenReich. He runs out into the street to stop traffic, including emergency vehicles, while screaming vehement rhetoric to mobilize mass opposition to the fascistic dictatorship of President Donald Trump.

After doubling-down on President Trump’s comments about voter fraud, Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller is now getting death threats disguised as “jokes” from the media, becoming the target for late-night comedians Monday night. While NBC’s Seth Meyers relied on the favorite “Hitler” jokes, CBS’s Stephen Colbert took the comedy to a more extreme level on the Late Show.

During her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, host Andrea Mitchell interrupted her panel of guests to go to live coverage of House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi ranting about the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn at a press conference. In her comments, the left-wing lawmaker cited a fake Twitter account purporting to be Flynn.

New York Times’ hard-left political reporter Jason Horowitz slimed President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, based on a second-hand reference in a speech Bannon gave two years ago. The distortion appeared in Sunday’s paper under the bias-on-steroids headline, “Fascists Too Lax for a Philosopher Cited by Bannon.” Bannon’s actual 2014 speech revealed that he’s not wholly on board with European far-right beliefs and actions. Bannon also called Vladimir Putin and his “cronies” an imperialist kleptocracy. But that didn’t stop the Times from attacking one of the mainstream media’s favorite enemies in the Trump White House.

In another round of fake news, the New York Times on Tuesday quoted from a bogus Twitter account purporting to be from Mike Flynn, the general who resigned on Monday night as National Security Adviser. The Times used a quote from “@GenMikeFlynn” asserting, “But if a scapegoat is what's needed for this Administration to continue to take this great nation forward, I am proud to do my duty.”
