It’s no secret that many members of the press have been unhappy with the way President Donald Trump has usually dealt with the “mainstream media.” However, on Monday, April 24, New York Times White House Correspondent Glenn Thrush actually praised the way the administration has handled its daily press conferences.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States heard the oral argument for the controversial Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer. The case tackles the idea of a separation between church and state, “The question: Can states refuse to give money to churches even when it's for something that doesn't involve worship,” noted Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News. And judging by questions asked by the justices, it appeared as though the majority might side with the church. And judging by NBC’s coverage, the network was appalled by the idea.

La cobertura brindada por Univision a la confirmación de Neil Gorsuch al Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos logró contarnos un gran cuento sobre la temible opción nuclear, mientras que a la vez logró omitir mención del bloqueo partidista demócrata contra Miguel Estrada en el 2001.

CBS on Tuesday downgraded the lifetime confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice to a bit story within a report on alleged feuding between White House aides. The swearing in ceremony of Neil Gorsuch on Monday simply became the subtext for Major Garrett to fixate on Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner: “The Rose Garden swearing in of Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch offered a tranquil counter point to weeks of White House infighting that President Trump has ordered to end.”

On Monday, Judge Neil Gorsuch became the 113th associate justice to sit on the Supreme Court after he was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts. The event was a culmination of many hours of testimony, a damaging filibuster by Senate Democrats, which forced Senate Republicans to use the so-called “nuclear option” to proceed with Gorsuch’s confirmation. But despite all of those historic obstacles, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) treated it as though it was nothing special, and ignored Democratic icon Tom Daschle who scolded Democrats for filibustering.

ABC on Monday decided that live coverage of Neil Gorsuch’s swearing in was a good time to twice remind viewers that Democrats feel the Supreme Court seat was “stolen” from them. Correspondent Cecilia Vega also ran through a litany of unrelated Trump failures as she reported live from the Rose Garden.

On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher demonized newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch as a "right-wing asshole," a "Scalia clone," and someone who "has never shown any empathy toward a human being" before suggesting that "back alley abortions" might return. He also accused Republicans of "cheating" to get him onto the Court, and of being motivated by racism in refusing to support former President Barack Obama's call for military action in Syria in 2013.

On Friday's regular "Shields and Brooks" segment on PBS Newshour, New York Times columnist David Brooks -- the supposedly more right-leaning half of the pairing -- oddly seemed to wish for some sort of "apocalypse" to beset the Donald Trump administration as he theorized and predicted that some scandal or "grievous blow" to the White House might inspire more bipartisanship in the aftermath. After host Judy Woodruff was surprised by his prediction of an "apocalypse," he only walked back his bizarre choice of words slightly: "Well, I -- that word came out -- I should have stuck with 'acidity.' That would have been a better word."

Univision's coverage of the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court managed to weave a grand tale about the fearsome nuclear option, while entirely omitting any mention of the partisan Democratic filibuster against Miguel Estrada.

In an act similar to that of a whining child, Senate Democrats attempted to block the President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch Thursday. Republicans, in turn, followed through on their promise to execute the so-called “nuclear option” to bring debate to a close and move the nomination forward. In response, ABC and NBC were up in arms that evening. “The Republican leader today emerged from the partisan battlefield with a thumbs up. The top Democrat, his head hung low in defeat,” bemoaned ABC’s Mary Bruce on World News Tonight

The partisan journalists at MSNBC proved they have no problem flip flopping when it comes to filibustering and the nuclear option. As the Republicans were voting to change the Senate rules, Thursday, and confirm Neil Gorsuch, MSNBC blamed Donald Trump. Andrea Mitchell lectured, “This is another history-making moment which another White House might have been able to avoid, perhaps with better leadership.”

On the April 5 NBC Today, correspondent Kristen Welker repeated last-minute accusations that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch had plagiarized – but it wasn’t until after she had gone onto other topics and was wrapping up her report that she mentioned that the person he was accused of plagiarizing had already debunked those claims.
