Here's an episode which indicates that many reporters in the establishment press expect the worst from Donald Trump, and can't wait to put it out there when they think they have it. On Friday, when Time Magazine political reporter Zeke Miller didn't immediately see the bust of Martin Luther King in the White House's Oval Office where he expected to see it, his knee-jerk assumption was that it was no longer there. So he tweeted that it was gone, with no indication that he first attempted to confirm with anyone in a position to know that it had been removed. Sensing a golden opportunity, others in the press accepted Miller's non-observation and freely retweeted it.

With the Democratic Party defeated, ObamaCare set for repeal, and incoming President Donald Trump poised to revoke a host of his executive orders, Obama’s actual legacy will likely fall far short of what his media fan club once imagined. But one aspect of his place in history seems secure: Barack Obama has been the lucky recipient of more biased, positive “news” media coverage than any other President in history.

CBS News ran a poll on global warming in December that it did not broadcast. PollingReport.com displayed a December 9-13 survey question: "Do you think global warming is an environmental problem that is causing a serious impact now, or do you think the impact of global warming won't happen until sometime in the future, or do you think global warming won't have a serious impact at all?"

CBS did attempt to panic the audience in a Saturday morning segment with Time's Jeffrey Kluger, who declared this issue is "not subject to politics."

Looking back at the media’s track record on communism, one sees a press that was too willing to act as a mouthpiece for the world’s worst dictatorships, and too accepting of the perverse claim that communism meant safety and security for its people.

In the same December 19 Time issue that declared Donald Trump an “outlandish” “demagogue,” columnist Joe Klein seriously praised Barack Obama for having “absolutely no hint of scandal” during his eight years as President. In a fawning article titled “Amazing Grace,” the journalist ignored the IRS targeting of conservatives, the terrible conditions at Barack Obama’s Veterans Affairs, Benghazi, Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal while his Secretary of State, to name a few scandals.

New York Times former Editorial Page editor Andrew Rosenthal, who never met a Republican he couldn’t call a racist, made one of his sporadic appearances at nytimes.com on Wednesday with “Donald Trump’s Big Idea: Don’t Blame Me” when he casually linked Trump to two of the most notorious mass murders in recent history with the smarmy observation that Trump had been named Person of the Year by Time Magazine, “a distinction also given to...Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin – twice.” Classy! Rosenthal also insisted that Trump voters must take responsibility for Trump's racism, xenophobia, and lying.

In yet another example of the concept that liberals cannot accept defeat in a presidential election, author Mark Weston stated in a column posted on the TIME magazine website on Tuesday that the “approximately 65 million Democrats who voted for Hillary Clinton should pledge that in the future, if a Republican wins the presidency with fewer votes than a Democrat,” “we won't pay taxes to the federal government.”

Noting that Trump's win marks the second time in the past 16 years that “a Republican candidate who finished second in the popular vote has won the presidency,” Weston declared that Democrats should adopt the motto: “No taxation without representation!”

Following the announcement that Donald Trump had been dubbed Time’s 2016’s “Person of the Year,” protestors from the entertainment sphere took to Twitter to express their disapproval of the decision.

In an exclusive phone interview with Donald Trump on Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt grilled the President-elect on his use of Twitter, fretting: “I have not seen you backing off fights on Twitter. In the time since you were elected, you’ve targeted the cast of Hamilton, The New York Times, China, Boeing, the media, and SNL. Is this proving to be a habit that you're finding a difficult time breaking?”

What a difference a Person of the Year can make. In 2008, Time journalists hailed their choice, Barack Obama, as an "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Jedi and cheered, “Why History Can’t Wait.” In contrast, 2016 Person of the Year Donald Trump is an “outlandish” “demagogue.” The Obama cover featured the now cliched hope poster. Trump’s image read, “President of the Divided States of America.”

The Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams exposed on Tuesday morning in a series of tweets the very problem that besets a liberal media obsessed with placing legitimate conservative sites into the sphere of the fake news when a number of journalists chided Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for comments at CPAC 2014 regarding school lunches thanks to a dishonest hatchet job by Time magazine.

The dateline: October 24, 2015. The cover of Time magazine? Art work of Donald Trump’s hair and face- melting. The headline: “Total Meltdown.” In fact, the cover was the second Time cover depicting a melting Donald, the first running in August of 2016 and titled simply: “Meltdown”
