Roger Ailes was a media pioneer and a gifted political strategist, whose death leaves a large void in the journalism and political worlds. As the Media Research Center President Brent Bozell respectfully observed “The Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called ‘news’ media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him. The good Roger did for America is immeasurable.” It was Ailes’s creation of FNC that cracked the media elite’s monopoly on news that caused many liberal journalists to spew hate against the man, within just hours of his passing. The following are just some of the media’s most spiteful and hateful attacks on Roger Ailes.

Time to send out the waahmbulance for the press because they just can’t stop whining about Donald Trump. President Trump’s pushback against the unfair liberal media has journalists from DC to New York throwing hissy fits. CNN’s Brian Stelter called Trump’s criticisms of the press “poisonous” “attacks” that are “dangerous for the country.” His colleague Jim Acosta claimed Trump was doing “real damage to the First Amendment” and the New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet called the President “dangerous.”

We are going into the third month of the Donald Trump presidency and the media are still having full-blown panic attacks over him. The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman was so terrified by Trump’s early morning tweeting that he suggested that the “nuclear codes” be taken away from the President. MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski moaned: “We are at a low point in American history....We are all really nervous. So, if people out there feel nervous, we do, too.” The following is a compilation of the most recent and ridiculous media meltdowns over Trump:

Donald Trump’s term in office is only four-weeks old but he’s got the liberal media and Hollywood losing their collective minds.

Forget a honeymoon. The liberal media started savaging President Donald Trump even before he was sworn-in. On the day before his Inauguration, MSNBC host Chris Matthews was scared by Trump’s access to nuclear weapons as he screeched: “It’s horrible but it’s real.” On the morning of the swearing-in ceremony,  ABC’s Matthew Dowd claimed the country’s mood was “more akin to where we were in 1861 and how divided the country is.” The following are the worst attacks on Trump, so far, since his Inauguration week:

In the last week the liberal media have been coming to grips with the end of the Barack Obama administration, as they’ve thrown a few last bouquets at the feet of their hero. From The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank wistfully wondering “For a man who achieved so much, Obama...must be wondering where the gratitude is?” to one last thrill for Chris Matthews “To say that no person can make a difference, I give you the fine case of that fine man, Barack Obama” the following is a collection of the media’s melancholic goodbyes to Obama.

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.

The news media reward Donald Trump with a “honeymoon” as unfriendly as their campaign coverage, with journalists blasting the President-elect as a “racist,” “authoritarian” and a “demagogue,” while some cast his election as “tainted” and potentially “illegitimate” because of Russia’s hacking.

NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Today, we finish the series with some of the most outlandish celebrity quotes of 2016, mostly of the Hollywood elite shaking their pom-poms for Hillary, hyperventilating over the idea that Trump might actually be elected, and crying “racism” or “sexism” when things don’t go their way.

All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Today, brace yourself for some the dopiest news media quotes of 2016 — everything from claims that Melania Trump’s white outfit at the Republican Convention was proof of her husband’s racist agenda, to a journalist committed to raising her cats as “gender neutral,” to Brian Williams’s expert commentary telling viewers “exactly” which vehicles Cubans would rather have for transportation.

All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Yesterday, we presented the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons; today’s installment showcases some of this year’s most rancid quotes attacking Republicans or conservatives. Most of the media’s ire this year was aimed at GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump — who, according to some in the media, is either an American version of Hitler, “clinically insane,” or a “raving meth head” — but conservative Senator Ted Cruz and the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia were also targeted.
