In an attempt to build up its already "We'll never really know why they did it" file relating to Islamist radicals who have taken innocent lives, three reporters at The New York Times composed a 1,900-word report Saturday evening (for Sunday's print edition) about Manchester bomber Salman Abedi's family background. The reporters provided very little hard information about Abedi's motivations, despite the fact that readers who saw the paper's tweet which promoted the article were led to expect it: "What led Salman Abedi to bomb the Manchester arena?" But they did push hard the news that Abedi called his mom before he carried the attack.

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 liberal media have been circling and acting as though they smell blood in the water since The Washington Post reported that close Trump adviser, Jared Kushner wanted to set up a back channel with the Russians so Trump could discuss Syria. This, on top of reports that investigators would like to simply talk with Kushner and ask him some questions. The prowling continued on CNN’s Inside Politics on Sunday, where they painted Kushner as “treacherous” before offhandedly noting that he was not a target roughly 50 minutes later.

Berlin-beat reporter Alison Smale reported in Friday’s New York Times her version of the media’s latest favorite anti-Trump take: The cold reception of President Trump compared to the embrace of the cool Barack Obama, in “Europeans’ Welcomes for Trump and Obama Are a Study in Contrasts.” While Trump was quoted as being a “danger for the world,” “rock-star” Obama was happily sprinkling “political stardust” over the prospects of left-wing European politicians.

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.

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 the heels of his plea to stop talking about a Democrat Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, CNN Politics editor-at-large Chris Cillizza informed readers on Wednesday to not get their hopes up that President Trump’s fairly successful foreign trip will translate at home when he returns with the Russia investigation surging back (translation: the media will keep destroying him).

For now, everyone knows the sonorous name and cherubic face of 8-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos. She's the littlest known victim of Monday night's jihad attack in Manchester, England. Her doe-eyed image spread as rapidly across social media as the #PrayForManchester hashtags and Twitter condolences from celebrities.

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?”

The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha took the liberal media to task Tuesday night, most notably CNN and MSNBC, for putting off the Manchester terror attack to squeeze in more time for Trump and Russia. “And look, there are some numbers around this that are just stunning. 105 minutes during the 7:00 P.M. hour,” he said during his appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight. “This according to [a Media Research Center] study, was spent on Trump and Russia on CNN and MSNBC. Just 50 minutes [for the attack].”

On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was in tip-top shape when it comes to spouting off wacky quotes, suggesting print journalists are “heroes,” John Brennan is a “patriot,” and admitting he had no clue who Ariana Grande was before Monday night.

On Tuesday, former CIA Director John Brennan appeared before a Senate committee to testify on what he knew of the allegations that members of Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with the Russians. In Brennan’s statements, he explained how the investigation got started. For MSNBC’s spotty political historian, Katy Tur, this meant that someone in Obama administration was to blame for not leaking to the press so they could smear Trump before the election. But for one Obama lackey that blame rests on the media.
