In a piece for CNN.com Friday afternoon, CNN Politics editor-at-large Chris Cillizza displayed the liberal media’s hypocrisy in what’s remembered versus not remembered, demanding that the media (and American people) stop talking about disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner forever after pleading guilty to having sexual discussions with an underage girl.

Time Magazine published a side piece by Michael Scherer and Zeke J. Miller accompanying its primary story on Miller's interview with the President. In "Donald Trump After Hours," the pair observed that "At the dessert course, he (Trump) gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else." Hard as it might be to believe, some unhinged members of the press have pounced on this sentence as proof of Trump's less than exemplary character.

Not convinced the media is the opposition party yet? Well, Thursday provided another example as CNN issued a statement disguised as an editorial, blasting President Donald Trump's comments he made about liberal CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon as “beneath the dignity of the office of the President."

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced on Tuesday that he will not run for reelection as the city's mayor because of mounting allegations that he sexually abused underage boys in the 1980s. Press coverage has either ignored Murray's Democratic Party affiliation or buried it in related stories' late paragraphs.

This outcome also exposes a double standard in the Evergreen State press, and should (but probably won't) lead management at these outlets, particularly at the Seattle Times, to question why they chose not to report multiple allegations against Murray which first surfaced almost a decade ago.

Early Thursday morning, New York Magazine published an online item which claimed that "rape is a pre-existing condition" under the health care bill which has passed in the House. As Reason.com noted, "None of this is true. Like, not even a little bit." That appears not to be the point, though. The point of engaging in such irresponsibility appears to have been to get it out there so that at least some people who never learn about the "correction" end up believing the original false claims. In other words, it's shamelessly produced fake news.

In a report which comes off as something it felt obligated to address but with as little meaningful information as possible, a story at CNN.com tells readers that "Murder Is Out of Control" in Baltimore — to the point where the city is begging the FBI for additional help. The story is so utterly devoid of background that those who haven't followed the city's woes closely could read it and believe that the problem just came along this year.

On his Thursday night Fox News show, Tucker Carlson addressed the growing threat of the criminal gang MS-13. He described the gang, whose series of horrific crimes have failed to garner the consistent national media attention they deserve, as "a far greater threat to your life than ISIS is."

CNN's Don Lemon had yet another racially outraged episode on Thursday night when one of his panelis tried to defend himself. Lemon wanted to force fellow CNN employee Jeffrey Lord into an apology for comparing Donald Trump to Martin Luther King....in any way, shape or form. Lemon's outburst at Lord included "Don't take me back to some before the war crap!" and "I don't want to hear about something from 50 darn-damn years ago!"

CNN tweeted out an article Thursday morning fretting that kids will suffer undue harm if Trump’s EPA budget cut is passed. The long-winded article written by a children's advocacy group and hosted on CNN’s website, is full of hyperbole and dire warnings backed up by left-wing environmental “experts” that argue the EPA is a life-giving organization crucial to our childrens’ very existence. This flies in the face of actual government watchdog organization findings that reveal the EPA actually is one of the most wasteful government agencies.

CNN.com ran a shocking headline on Thursday: “5 Must-Have Apps for Undocumented Immigrants.” Any one in CNN’s audience knows which side they take on immigration, but this is the most obvious they’ve ever been. “Here’s how to evade the law, by CNN.”

Proving that the rabidly partisan journalists at CNN have way too much time on their hands, reporter Michelle Krupa on Wednesday actually fact checked a White House joke about Russian salad dressing. During his daily briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer joked, “If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that's a Russia connection.”
