Thursday morning, Harvard Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy issued a report which confirmed what NewsBusters reported in April, namely that President Donald Trump "has received unsparing coverage for most weeks of his presidency, without a single major topic where Trump’s coverage, on balance, was more positive than negative, setting a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president." On Sunday, CNN's John Berman tried to cast Fox News as a conservatively biased outlier — as opposed to the relatively fair and balanced entity it has actually been during the Trump administration's early months — by selecting the results of one tiny element of the Shorenstein report and presenting it as if it was the study's comprehensive conclusion.

During Sean Hannity's Opening Monologue for his weeknight program on Tuesday, April 25, the Fox News Channel host hammered the people who participate in what he dubbed “Media Fascism,” an attempt to “silence every conservative voice in the country.”

While a guest on the Fox News Channel’s weeknight Hannity program on Wednesday, April 12, Piers Morgan -- a former evening host for the Cable News Network and current U.S. editor-at-large on the Daily Mail website -- sharply criticized Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC’s Hardball program, for insinuating that President Donald Trump and his family might meet a savage end.

On Monday's The View on ABC, as the group discussed Ted Koppel's recent interview with Sean Hannity in which he accused the conservative FNC host of being bad for the country, liberal co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, and Joy Behar all wrongly accused Fox News of promoting birtherism conspiracy theories against President Barack Obama. Ironically, a Nexis search reveals many examples of FNC anchors over the years disputing the conspiracy theories that Obama was born in Kenya, as they repeatedly made known their belief that he was born in Hawaii and that those who claimed otherwise were misguided.

In the last 36 hours, CNN and the Fox News Channel (FNC) came to blows following a report by CNN media reporter Dylan Byers that FNC host Sean Hannity whipped out a gun and pointed it at Juan Williams following a heated debate last year on the set of his eponymous show.

Monday evening conservative radio host Mark Levin shot back at the media, after several networks and pundits mocked him as a “conspiracy theorist” who propagated stories from anonymous sources. This came after Levin talked about reports that the Obama Administration had eavesdropped on Trump's associates before the election, reports Levin asserted, he got from the mainstream media itself. “Apparently now I have forced the media to do its job!” Levin snarked before accusing the media of being “schizophrenic” for forgetting their own reporting.

This post goes straight into the "Just When You Didn't Think They Could Sink Any Lower (But They Always Manage)" file. At Slate.com on Thursday, staff writer Isaac Chotiner took the occasion of Alan Colmes's death only hours earlier to criticize him as a "buffoon and patsy," and as "Fox News’ Original Liberal Weakling."

You might call it The Media versus America. The President of the United States held a press conference on Thursday. On that, everyone agreed. But after that? Words like “unhinged” a particular favorite to describe the event. Here’s a sample of the headline reaction.The New York Times: An Aggrieved President Moves His Surrogates Aside, The Washington Post: Debrief: In an erratic performance, Trump shows his supporters who’s boss

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos made yet another appearance on Fox News' Hannity, and reeled off an interview that was an exercise in contradictions and inconsistencies.

As you probably know, Sean Hannity and The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens recently sniped at each other regarding Donald Trump. Those hostilities, suggested Zack Beauchamp in a Monday piece, were more on the level of an NFL intrasquad game than, say, Steelers vs. Ravens in the playoffs. Beauchamp argues that Hannity and Stephens, whatever their differences over the GOP nominee, have something much more important in common: a “conservative worldview, defined by a widespread acceptance of unsupportable ideas, that helped give rise to Trump.”

The network newscasts have shown no interest in an ex-Secret Service agent’s unflattering portrayal of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s time at the White House. Gary Byrne, author of Crisis of Character, appeared on Fox’s Hannity, Monday, but has been all but invisible on ABC, CBS and NBC.
