If you can’t say something nice....by tradition, newspaper obituaries hold back criticism in the name of respect for the deceased and their grieving admirers, with even political figures granted reverence. But often conservatives are the exception, with outlets like the New York Times granting themselves free reign to criticize. Sunday obit of Hall of Fame pitcher and conservative Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning, written by Richard Goldstein, shows the differing standards by which liberal and conservative politicians are held, even in death. It started with the headline: “Jim Bunning, Hall of Fame Pitcher Turned Cantankerous Senator, Dies at 85.”

As previously demonstrated in this space, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC are relentless in attacking conservatives, Christians, and President Trump. Here’s the thing: It’s not just in their morning and evening newscasts, but also their primetime scripted programs.

The liberal network shows were all busy Sunday morning pushing accusations and speculation about President Trump and his adviser Jared Kushner. Their discussion was drive by more anonymous sources telling The Washington Post that Kushner tried to set up a backchannel discussion between Trump and the Russians to talk about Syria. CNN even accused the action of being “treasonous.” The hysteria was also present on NBC’s Meet the Press, but theirs was shattered by The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel after she introduced facts to the discussion.

The Associated Press, PolitiFact, CNN, Snopes and all of the other "fact-checkers" should be busy this weekend and well into next week vetting the howlers contained in Rebecca Traister's New York Magazine Friday afternoon interview of a politician who has been in the public eye for decades. But it's a virtual lock that they won't bother, because the person Traister interviewed was Hillary Clinton.

Nowhere is the dearth of opposing opinion more apparent than on the opinion editorial pages of major newspapers.  Syndicated columnists are given space, but local columnists with a right leaning political perspective are few and far between.  Such was my situation as a freelance columnist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

President Donald Trump attended his first summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) on Thursday. While there, he emphasized that all members of the organization should be paying the two percent of GDP obligation they agreed to, instead of just the handful that do. Back home in America, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seemed embarrassed by Trump’s demands and scolded him for it. “This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States,” Trump declared, but the networks didn’t want to have it.

On Thursday morning, CNN’s New Day linked President Trump’s frequent criticism of the liberal media to Montana Congressional candidate Greg Gianforte’s violent incident with a reporter Wednesday evening. Appearing on the morning show, The Washington Post’s Karoun Demirjian whined: “You’ve got this kind of culture of, you know, reporters are the enemy going on and it depends. You see a lot of Democrats pointing the finger at the President right now. Saying you created, you helped create, at least, this culture where people consider reporters to be, you know, a fifth column or something.”

In the wake of the scuffle that occurred between GOP Montana Congressional Candidate Greg Giafonte and Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, co-host Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe went directly after President Donald Trump. “You can draw a straight line from Republican candidates thinking that sort of behavior is okay when you have Donald Trump berating reporters throughout the entire campaign, suggesting terrible things, calling them -- using the Stalinist term "enemy of the people," He complained to panelist Mike Barnicle. “This is not a big leap from what the head of the Republican party is saying every day and what happened last night in Montana.”

As part of the media’s hysteria-filled reactions to the disturbing event out of Montana Wednesday night in which Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte allegedly body slammed The Guardian’s Ben Jacobs, CNN senior media reporter Dylan Byers blamed it on “anti-media rhetoric” and “civility” from conservatives.

All of the negative news about President Donald Trump provided a convenient smokescreen to obscure a story highly damaging to former President Barack Obama on Wednesday. As first reported by Circa News, “The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall.” As would be expected, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) completely omitted from their evening broadcasts.

On Wednesday morning, CNN political analyst David Gregory trashed those who dared to question the media’s hysterical coverage of the Trump administration. Unsurprisingly, he continued to practice his favorite past time of pushing false narratives. On CNN’s New Day, he at first went directly at the President: “you have the President of the United States demonstrably trying to shut down that investigation. Why? Calling it a hoax. Why?”

Liberal Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski showed her hypocrisy on Wednesday, questioning the patriotism of Donald Trump. This from the same woman who previously decried questioning other people’s patriotism. Speaking of the President, she sneered, “I know it is a terrible thing to question someone's patriotism, but you wonder what he cares about.” Joe Scarborough replied saying,“ He's made it perfectly obvious. I think a lot of people that haven known him in the past knew he was self-involved. But to the degree that he cares only about himself...it has been pretty surprising.”
