In a segment on media bias on his Wednesday evening Fox News show, there was an interesting juxtaposition between host Tucker Carlson's short opening flashback to a conversation with Reuters reporter and White House Correspondents Association President Jeff Mason at Reuters and the live conversation he had with Buzzfeed Editor Ben Smith. Smith incredibly insisted that "people don't get into the business of reporting ... because we are political activists."

Politico's magazine published an article with a surprising title: “The Media Bubble Is Worse Than You Think.” Jack Shafer and Tucker Doherty began with the 2016 election results, which was “not just as an embarrassment for the press but as an indictment. In some profound way, the election made clear, the national media just doesn’t get the nation it purportedly covers.”

The writers know they are working for a liberal media outlet with mostly liberal readers, so they unconvincingly tut-tut the notion that the media favored Hillary in their coverage.

While ABC, CBS and NBC on Monday and Tuesday found time to celebrate the return of “easy-going,” rested Barack Obama to the public scene, none of them covered the release of a blockbuster expose that reveals the buried secrets of the ex-President’s Iran deal giveaway.

Thirstier than an ultra-marathoner lost in Death Valley in mid-July. Hyping the entertainment magazine's latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, "How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?" Welcome to the liberal media's manufacturing of "cool." Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check.

Please Senator Warner! Please find our Great Pumpkin and we will reward you with a presidential nomination! The Great Pumpkin in this case is proof of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia to somehow change the 2016 election results. They still continue to search with the spotlight now on Senator Mark Warner of Virginia who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. The reward for finding their Great Pumpkin is a ticket to the presidency as Politico reminded us in their April 13 puff piece by Austin Wright:

After Tuesday night's special election, a Republican will continue to represent the people in Kansas's Fourth Congressional District. Democrats and their apparatchiks in the press want people to believe that their party achieved a moral victory because their candidate only lost by seven points.

Three months into the year, we may have reached peak 2017. Univision, after years of waging open war on Republicans, is now openly complaining about lack of access to Congressional Republicans. Most of the on-the-record whining comes from Edición Nocturna (Univision's late-night newscast) co-anchor Enrique Acevedo, who has this to say to Politico's Hadas Gold:

Demonstrating that the left will risk the reputation and credibility of virtually any of its cherished institutions in the name of defending the biased establishment press against its center-right competitors, the Harvard Library has published "Fake News, Misinformation, and Propaganda," a "research Guide" purporting to offer "a brief introduction to the spread of misinformation of all kinds and tools for identifying it."

When reading the series of charts containing a weird labyrinth of rather tenuous connections published in the March/April edition of Politico Magazine, it is hard not to channel Inspector Jacques Clouseau trying to connect the unrelated dots to make the case that was always far off the mark. The Politico dots on the series of seven elaborate charts are chock full of oligarchs, both Russian and Ukrainian, a beauty contest, a mixed martial artist, a dossier that no one has seen, a couple of Russian energy giants not to be confused with a regular Russian oil company, and, to top it off, a mystery person. This is the laughable evidence presented by reporter Michael Crowley to desperately give the Trump-Russia fake news story an aura of validity despite no proof.

Woo! Hoo! In the nine special state legislative elections since the biggest upset in political history last November the Democrats have made no net gains. Aren't you impressed by their fantastic performance?

No? Then you are probably normal. Yet Politico takes this fact and acts like it is some sort of great victory portending great things for the Democrats in the future.  You won't know whether to laugh or yawn while reading Politico going into desperate feel-good overdrive hyping the Democrats based on incredibly thin gruel:

It hasn't taken much time for the seedy, left agenda-driven unprofessionalism of Politico alum Glenn Thrush, who while there sent "an entire section of an article pertaining to (Hillary Clinton campaign manager) Podesta for approval before publication," to make its presence felt at the New York Times, his new place of employment. In a Friday diatribe disguised as a dispatch which appeared on the front page of the paper's Saturday print edition above the fold, Thrush quoted six words from Trump's speech earlier that day at CPAC, and deliberately misinterpreted them.

Opening his program on Monday, Rush Limbaugh referred to a Politico item by Hanna Trudo, who reported on his appearance on the February 19 edition of Fox News Sunday. Trudo opened by claiming that "Rush Limbaugh says he doesn’t buy the notion that Russia influenced the election of President Donald Trump." Rush observed on the air that this isn't what he said. Then Trudo doubled down and incorrectly "quote," using quotation marks, what Rush allegedly said. Both the video and the show's transcript demonstrate that Rush did not say what Trudo claimed. Her misquote distorts what he said. And the establishment press wonders why the average American distrusts and despises them.
