Al Franken has a new book out humbly titled Al Franken, Giant of the Senate. On that same level of attempted humor, his author’s biography states he received “his doctorate in right-wing megalomania studies from Trump University.” Stay classy, Sen. Franken.

Sycophantic press profiles of Franken express admiration for the “former comedian” as if the satire stopped. Just two months ago, The Washington Post gushed that in the Age of Trump, “the former comedian and satirist may be having a breakout moment as a political star."

Though the networks on Tuesday were excited by the “dramatic” and “explosive” testimony of Sally Yates, only CBS This Morning bothered to show Ted Cruz hammering the ex-Justice Department official about the legality of Donald Trump’s travel ban. Co-host Norah O’Donnell described how the Republican called out Yates:

Samantha Bee enjoyed the biggest spotlight of her career during her profanity-laced gala dubbed "Not The White House Correspondents Dinner." And that’s a crying shame.

The former Daily Show contributor hosts Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, TBS’s weekly assault on all things conservative. The media elite adores her, which has helped her career ascent. She’s arguably the loudest critic of the Trump era, too. So everything she does or says is celebrated in media circles.

A tan sólo tres meses del comienzo  del nuevo año, podríamos haber alcanzado el colmo del 2017. La cadena Univision, tras años de guerra abierta contra los republicanos, ahora se queja sin tapujos de su falta de acceso a los republicanos en el Congreso de los Estados Unidos.

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:

President Trump's first budget proposed to end funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, something we at the MRC have advocated throughout our history. It's not fair that conservative taxpayers should have to subsidize propaganda programs that insult their political philosophy and assault their favorite politicians.

On Wednesday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews took his latest cheapshot at Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.), ruling that “[h]is unpleasantness...is immeasurable” after hearing a clip of Cruz criticizing Democrats for whining about Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) being silenced on the Senate floor. In contrast, Matthews showcased the utmost affection for Democratic Senator Tim Kaine (Va.) and inquired about his well-being since Kaine and Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election.

Things became awkward during CNN’s The Future of Obamacare debate Tuesday night, as Senator Bernie Sanders appeared to become a little irritated with a small business owner who admitted to him that she was not providing health care for her employees. Texas salon chain owner La Ronda Hunter explained to the senator that because of Obamacare’s mandates she could not expand her business and could not pay for their care. Sanders’ reaction was tantamount to him saying ‘too bad so sad.’

Univision-owned Deadspin tried taking a swipe last night at U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and failed miserably. Hilarity ensued, Twitter lit up, and the fallout extended well into the night. Once you stop laughing, you realize that there are legitimate questions that remain unasked - and some that merit an answer.

Univision-owned and far-left sports site Deadspin took a dive into the gutter on Tuesday night, telling Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) to “go eat shit” on Twitter following a post about Cruz playing pick-up basketball games with Senate colleagues.

After the Big Three networks spent days forwarding accusations that Senator Jeff Sessions was a bigot, the time for his first confirmation hearing had finally arrived. The hearing was interrupted some nine times by roughly 25 people. This caught the attention of Senator Ted Cruz who made it his mission to set the record straight on his colleague’s history of combating racism and dared the liberal media to report the truth. ABC, CBS, and NBC all failed Cruz’s challenge Tuesday evening.

It seems like the line between journalists and politicians is always growing finer. According to the Texas Tribune, ABC News’ Chief Political Analyst Matthew Dowd is ”thinking” about running for Texas Senate as an Independent challenger to Ted Cruz. He told the Tribune that he has been approached by both Republicans and Democrats to run.
