While the liberal media accuse Christians who support traditional marriage of attacking gays, the networks are turning a blind eye to reports from Chechnya of real persecution: gay “concentration camps.” Since the beginning of April, multiple gay news outlets, the Huffington Post, The New York Times, the Guardian and The Washington Post have followed the story of the “barbaric treatment of gay men in the traditionally conservative Muslim society” of Chechnya.

Time magazine’s 10 Questions column has a history of softballs for liberals. But the April 10 magazine didn’t even try for objectivity when it came to Democratic Congressman John Lewis. From asking about the “resistance” to joy over problems for the ObamaCare repeal, journalist Lily Rothman gushed over the liberal icon.
'Will London Fall?' NYT’s Brexit Mocker Lyall Mourns Her (Left-Wing Version of) London on Front PageBy Clay Waters | | April 11, 2017 | 1:49 PM EDT
The front of Tuesday’s New York Times featured a long essay by Sarah Lyall on Brexit, “A Mighty City Trembles at a Global Crossroad -- With Britain Leaving Europe, Can London Remain a Capital of the World?” The online headline was stark: “Will London Fall?” The NYT made a big production of it, with big photos over the fold on the front and inside, with Lyall “mourning” the supposed death of the famously “tolerant....open-minded” city. Counter-arguments about national sovereignty and overweening bureaucratic dictates were quickly dismissed as irresponsible right-wing journalistic myths. Lyall's reporting has betrayed a consistent bitterness over Brexit: Before the vote, she had mocked the movement in a front-page story by evoking Monty Python.

CBS on Tuesday downgraded the lifetime confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice to a bit story within a report on alleged feuding between White House aides. The swearing in ceremony of Neil Gorsuch on Monday simply became the subtext for Major Garrett to fixate on Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner: “The Rose Garden swearing in of Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch offered a tranquil counter point to weeks of White House infighting that President Trump has ordered to end.”

It’s not often you hear a left-leaning, former news network host sticking up for persecuted Christians, but that’s exactly what happened Monday night on Fox News Channel. Host Tucker Carlson brought on former CNN analyst and current editor of The Daily Mail Piers Morgan to get his take on why the media wasn’t giving the Palm Sunday attacks in Egypt on churches the attention they deserved.

Monday on Morning Joe, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski talked to Tina Brown about just how “frustrating” it is that Hillary Clinton lost. In her first public interview since the election results, Clinton told the Women in the World Summit that one of the reasons she lost was the e-mail scandal. When Brown had mentioned this, she said, “In the debates, she was phenomenal but in interviews she was always in a crouch position over the darn e-mails.” Poor Hillary! Brzezinski heard this and couldn’t help but exclaim, “Oh yeah I know... So frustrating!”
Nerdprom or Twenty Minutes Trump Hate? WH Journo Dinner to Feature 'Daily Show' Leftist Hasan MinhajBy Tim Graham | | April 11, 2017 | 10:00 AM EDT
The White House Correspondents Association has announced a comedian for its annual dinner on date: Hasan Minhaj of The Daily Show, whose main claim to fame is a flame-throwing leftist routine last June at the Radio Television Correspondents Association Dinner. It made our list of the most notable left-wing media quotes of 2016, denouncing America's "cocktail of homophobia, xenophobia, lack of access to mental health care, and sheer lack of political will" to enact gun control.

Journalists convince themselves that their product is “news,” but often it’s just publicity, especially when liberal journalists hail other liberal journalists for their hard-working idealism. Take Tuesday’s gushy Washington Post profile of CNN media reporter and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter. The online headline was “Brian Stelter has been training for this moment his entire life.” What moment?
Post reporter/publicist Ellen McCarthy never quite manages an answer to that question: the “moment” is the Trump inauguration, and his current crusade to crush the career of Fox News star Bill O’Reilly.

As touted in the news recently, the April 10th episode of ABC’s Quantico, titled “ODYOKE,” worked a fictional vote in Congress on a Muslim registry bill into the script. Quantico writers are determined not to miss an opportunity to take a swipe at President Trump this season and the Muslim registry storyline is a clear reference to the president's so-called Muslim travel ban.

The ultra-socialist state of New York became the first state in the union to saddle its taxpayers with “free” tuition to four-year public colleges and universities on Monday, and the liberal media couldn’t be happier. “The Empire State has become the first state to offer free four-year tuition to the state's public universities for low and middle-income families,” praised Anchor Lest Holt during NBC Nightly News, “It opens doors for students who otherwise couldn't afford it, but will other states follow New York's lead?”

Just when CBS’s Superior Donuts makes me think it can avoid a racial argument, it jumps into something just as bad: insulting all Chicago police as corrupt. Why can’t we just watch a show that doesn’t have either? In the April 10 episode “Painted Love,” Franco (Jermaine Fowler) gets inspired to paint a mural to his recently-passed friend and inspiration "Bam-Bam," who also happened to be a former gang member.

On Monday, Judge Neil Gorsuch became the 113th associate justice to sit on the Supreme Court after he was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts. The event was a culmination of many hours of testimony, a damaging filibuster by Senate Democrats, which forced Senate Republicans to use the so-called “nuclear option” to proceed with Gorsuch’s confirmation. But despite all of those historic obstacles, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) treated it as though it was nothing special, and ignored Democratic icon Tom Daschle who scolded Democrats for filibustering.

Appearing as a panel member on Monday's MSNBC Live with Steve Kornacki, The Root's Jason Johnson engaged in his latest smears against President Donald Trump and White House advisor Steve Bannon as the recurring MSNBC guest tried to link Trump to 'Neo-Nazis' and Bannon to "white nationalist terrorists." The race-obsessed politics editor of The Root was quick to bring up "Neo-Nazis" as he began his analysis: "The Trump supporters are really split. I mean, you have his far-right and alt-right and sort of neo-Nazi supporters..."

One of the most popular franchises for Marvel Comics over the past few decades has been the X-Men, an ever-changing group of “mutants” born with an extra gene granting them super powers when they reach puberty. However, the launch on Wednesdary, April 5, of the latest series for the characters -- entitled X-Men Gold -- quickly spawned an outcry when the artwork portrayed numbers and letters that refer to a verse from the Quran cited in support of intolerance toward other religions, as well as political unrest taking place in Indonesia.

After surviving a targeted effort by Turkish lobbies to derail its success, the Armenian Genocide film The Promise will open in American theaters next week. And Hollywood celebs are getting the word out.
