During the past several days, people in the “mainstream media” have taken advantage of every opportunity to criticize President Donald Trump, his staff, or even people in his family. The latest example of this tactic came on Wednesday's edition of Morning Joe on MSNBC, when co-host Mika Brzezinski declared that White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway would never be a guest on the program “as long as I'm on it” because “I don't believe in 'fake news' for information that is not true. Every time I've ever seen her on television, something's askew, off or incorrect.”

While the rest of the media were swooning over recent Saturday Night Live episodes almost exclusively devoted to anti-Trump sketches, Monday’s Good Morning America hit pause on that narrative, wondering if it’s “going too far” “pushing their politics” and “sacrificing some laughs along the way.”

Thursday’s White House press briefing was a tense affair as fireworks sparked between press secretary Sean Spicer and SiriusXM’s Jared Rizzi, who complained about the topics covered in Trump’s tweets and inadvertently (or not) gave credence to the idea of not having press secretary speak on the President’s behalf.  At one point, Spicer lashed out at Rizzi for essentially arguing that Spicer’s words should be discounted compared to a presidential tweet, arguing it’s “the silliest thing I’ve ever heard.”

The Washington Post is joining the liberal chorus of wishful thinkers that Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer impression might damage Spicer and Donald Trump. Post reporter Elahe Izadi – who pitches herself as a stand-up comedian on the side – set out to promote anonymously-sourced stories of Trump unrest over the skit, and find leftist comedians who wished and hoped the NBC comedy show could convince President Trump to resign.

On Wednesday afternoon, during live reaction to White House press secretary Sean Spicer's recently concluded press briefing, CNN's chief political analyst Gloria Borger fretted that it was "troubling" that President Donald Trump is "stoking fear with the American public" in his push to reinstate the travel ban involving some Muslim countries.

CNN and MSNBC each did their parts on Tuesday afternoon to advance the narrative that Saturday Night Live has claimed White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s scalp as their own, hyping that Tuesday’s press briefing showed how Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation has harmed him.

Saturday Night Live couldn’t have drawn it up any better, folks. On Monday’s New Day, Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter and CNN media analyst Bill Carter sang the comedy show’s praises following Melissa McCarthy’s parody of Sean Spicer, spinning that the skit represents “a problem for the White House [and Spicer] going forward.”

As Curtis Houck demonstrated at NewsBusters on Wednesday, the historic step of including four outside-the-DC Beltway journalists at White House press conferences via Skype is not sitting well "with many establishment media types." The aggrieved folks at CNN are particularly upset.

On Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, during a discussion of White House press secretary Sean Spicer complaining about the media calling President Donald Trump's restrictions on immigration a "Muslim ban," CNN political commentator Errol Louis repeated a story that has turned out to be a hoax that the Iraqi mother of an American citizen died in Iraq because she was barred from traveling to the U.S. for treatment. The story in question has since been exposed as a fabrication, as the woman died several days before the restrictions were imposed. Louis: "All of the stories that have been done by this network, by other news organizations, finding who these people are -- these so-called 'bad people' who had to be kept out and finding out that they're children, they're elderly people, they're patriots, they're members of the military, they're, you know, grandmothers. They're people who in at least one tragic case wasn't able to come here for medical treatment, and died, you know."

On Wednesday, the White House took the historic step to involve four journalists from outside Washington D.C. in the Daily Press Briefing, but it didn’t sit well with many establishment media types inside the Beltway and New York City who complained they were too soft for their liking.

In her latest tussle with White House press secretary Sean Spicer, NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker returned on Wednesday by catering to Senator Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), wondering what President Trump will do to get Schumer to support Neil Gorsuch since he’s hurt Schumer’s feelings in the past.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called out NBC News on Tuesday for inaccurately reporting President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily banning immigration from seven terrorist-sponsor countries. During the daily White House briefing, NBC's Kristen Welker asked Spicer about Trump's use of the word "ban" in a tweet on Monday. The press secretary responded, "He's using the words the media is using."
