On Monday, the liberal broadcast networks and cable outlets tag-teamed to ignore live opening day coverage of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to become the next Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, instead spending over 11 hours of coverage on the FBI Director James Comey, addressing allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

Katy Perry did more than just sing about kissing a girl and liking it. At its L.A. gala this weekend, the Human Rights Campaign awarded Katy Perry the Ally for Equality award for her LGBT advocacy. In her acceptance speech, the pop star spent ten minutes criticizing her Christian upbringing while championing “sexual fluidity.” And, predictably, the feminist media loved it.

Univision's advocacy for practically open-borders policy has hit a new low, in its totally one-sided coverage of California's sanctuary state bill, deceptively named the "California Values Act", now working its way through the state legislature.

The partisan journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday gushed over a new Obama administration book, touting its “real talk” and encouraging ex-staffer Alyssa Mastromonaco to lash out at Donald Trump. In contrast, this same network questioned the loyalty of ex-Secretary of Defense Bob Gates after he wrote a book criticizing Barack Obama.

A photo of a bullwhip in a guy’s butt? You paid for that. The movie about 12-year-olds having lesbian sex? Ditto. Oh, and did you ever get a thank you card for the $12K you gave that experimental theatre company to create a play about the “stigma” of abortion?

National Public Radio greeted the opening of the Neil Gorsuch confirmation hearings in typical leftist fashion: Nina Totenberg publicizing the complaints of feminist groups and failing to disclose the partisan background of the accuser, named Jennifer Sisk, who claims Gorsuch made insensitive comments about maternity leave in a class at the University of Colorado law school.
Alex Griswold at the Washington Free Beacon noted what Totenberg somehow didn’t find worth mentioning in her online story, Sisk's political background as a Democrat.

During 9 a.m. ET hour MSNBC coverage ahead of the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 election on Monday, anchor Brian Williams wondered if the issue may bring down the Trump administration: “Could this dissolve everything? Could this be an existential threat to this administration, the process that begins today?”

All three major broadcast networks offered Monday morning coverage of the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Russia and the 2016 election, but it was NBC that swooned over Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.) and offered a hilarious slip that the Russians may have prevented their dear Hillary Clinton from winning.

Former CNN host D.L. Hughley ranted in a TMZ video posted Monday that Donald Trump is a “f***ing’ “liar” who “doesn’t deserve respect.” The former host of CNN’s D.L. Hughley Breaks the News blasted, “I think if the president were respect-worthy, you should do it. But I think in all the things he’s done — just this week, accusing a man, a former president, of a felony. He’s lied. A liar doesn’t deserve respect like that.”

Just hours before the Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was set to begin, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning eagerly parroted Democratic talking points against President Trump’s judicial pick and promised an “intense grilling” for the federal judge as the “ugly” process got underway.

Monday on Morning Joe, the topic of discussion was Maureen Dowd’s column in the New York Times concerning Trump’s presidency. Co-host Mika Brzezinski, prompting a discussion, introduced and read the column aloud. The Morning Joe crew delighted in a metaphor of the Trump administration “eating its own tail.”
Brzezinski related, “Maureen Dowd really kind of sort of crystallizes what it is we are seeing on one level, the psychological part of Trump and why he’s doing what he is doing or maybe he doesn't know why and maybe he doesn't even like the job..."

In early February, Meetup.com, a site which until late January was all about "bring(ing) people together in thousands of cities to do more of what they want to do in life" by helping people subscribe to common interest groups and organize meetings, joined "the resistance." On Sunday, Steve Peoples at the Associated Press spent 14 paragraphs treating the moves as a brand-new effort, leaving only readers who get to his 15th paragraph to wonder about the financial impact thus far of the company's abandonment of all pretenses of neutrality.

Not three years after announcing the “transgender tipping point,” TIME magazine began exploring the next cultural frontier: a society, no longer labelled by the strict binaries of male and female. But how much of the gender and sexual-fluidity craze is actually spurred on by Hollywood and the liberal media?

Veteran former ABC reporter Lynn Sherr pleaded with her fellow journalists: Stop doing journalism on Donald Trump when he and his spokespeople are only “spewing garbage” anyway! In her Friday post at the site run by left-wing public television omnipresence Bill Moyers, Sherr also actively discouraged practicing balanced journalism when it comes to the president, a la Jim Rutenberg’s front-page editorial for the New York Times during the campaign.

If the liberal media cover the Neil Gorsuch hearings the same way they handled Barack Obama’s choices for the Supreme Court, they will do everything they can to pave the way to an easy confirmation. When they weren’t singing the praises of their backgrounds, or even comedic stylings, liberal reporters and anchors tried to downplay the leftist leaning of Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Merrick Garland. The following is a collection of some the most egregious examples of liberal reporters and anchors doing their best to pave the way for Obama’s nominees.
