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.

Of this past Sunday's political talk shows, NBC's Meet the Press went the furthest in informing viewers of Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez's recent statement against Democrats who hold pro-life views as host Chuck Todd brought up the issue with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and even raised the matter again during the show's regular panel segment. CNN's State of the Union also touched on the issue as CBS's Face the Nation only brought it up vaguely, while ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday ignored it completely.

On Thursday, "President Donald Trump signed a bill Thursday undoing an Obama-era regulation that prohibited states from withholding money from Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health clinics." On NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, Andrea Mitchell's sense of cruel irony was utterly absent, as she described the bill potentially affecting the nation's largest abortion provider as "a killer decision."

There’s something you don’t see very often on NBC. Appearing on Meet the Press, Sunday, National Review editor Rich Lowry mocked the “dithering” Barack Obama’s Syria policy in the light of Donald Trump’s Syria strike. Talking to Chuck Todd, Lowry lowered the boom: “It was a bad week for Obama's legacy. Because, one, Trump showed doing this sort exemplary strike is not that difficult.”

On April 5, Politifact, the website which uses "fact-checking" as a shield to advance a left-supporting, right-bashing "truth squad" agenda, decided that "Revisiting the Obama track record on Syria’s chemical weapons" was necessary. I'll say.

With the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch just days away and the possibly of Republicans nuking the filibuster looming, NBC’s Chuck Todd seemed as though he was in a near panic on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Besides his declarations of the GOP continuing the Senate’s decent down the “slippery slope” of removing the filibuster, Todd pestered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate to hold a vote for former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland.

Bill Nye produced a curious video on Wednesday, March 29, in which “the Science Guy” claimed that global warming might be solved by genetically engineering livestock to produce less of the methane greenhouse gas farted by animals ranging from cows to sheep or goats.

“Agriculture researchers are going to produce or breed farm animals that produce less methane by changing the bacteria that are in their stomachs,” Nye claimed. “To get all the way down to a plant-based diet might be tricky for a lot of people. However, it seems like a good idea.”

In the wake of the failure of the House GOP’s health care legislation on Friday, blame was being hurled all over Washington. And during Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC, the panel joined in and savagely began tearing into the different factions of the Republican Party on the Hill. “That loss isn’t on the President it isn't on Paul Ryan and it is on the Area 51 sub-caucus of the Freedom Caucus, which believes in legislative flying saucers,” spat Republican radio host Hugh Hewitt.

On Sunday, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney was doing his due diligence to help sell President Donald Trump’s federal budget by making the rounds on some of the network morning shows. When he appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation and NBC’s Meet the Press, moderators John Dickerson and Chuck Todd peppered the White House official with ridiculous and conflicting questions. “Well, what about the President's vacations? You know, when he goes down to Mar-a-Lago,” Dickerson pressed while openly admitting that it was a “political question.”

During Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC’s self-proclaimed “referee” of political “rules,” moderator Chuck Todd demonstrated just which team he favored in the contact sport of American politics. At the end of his program, Todd did some blocking and tackling for the Democrats as he mocked the GOP’s repeal and replace efforts for ObamaCare. His ranting showed just who he’s looking out for, and it’s not the American people.

NBC’s Chuck Todd took a firm stand during Sunday’s Meet the Press as he pushed accusations that Trump’s campaign was colluding with the Russian government. “Connecting the dots between the Trump campaign and Russia,” he declared during his opening tease, “The growing evidence of the Trump-Russia connection threatens to consume the opening months of Donald Trump's presidency.” Through all of his hyperbole, Todd failed to mention that there is no evidence of such collusion.

Things arguably got a little embarrassing for NBC moderator Chuck Todd during Sunday’s Meet the Press, after Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton had to explain to him that the claims of anonymous sources should be taken with a grain of salt. “Anonymous sources said Steve Bannon drove from the White House to the Department of Homeland Security to confront John Kelly, which we now know is not the truth,” Cotton reminded Todd, “That’s not like the tone of a conversation, that’s someone’s physical whereabouts.”
