Even though Barack Obama left the presidency 99 days ago, MSNBC showed late Thursday night why any criticism of him remains unacceptable. On Thursday’s 11th Hour, fill-in host Joy Reid went ballistic when former George W. Bush chief of staff Andy Card suggested that Obama came into office without a distinct set of beliefs to support his decision-making.

Showing that he’s somewhat incapable of shame, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews re-upped and defended on Tuesday night his comparisons of the Trump family to the ultimately-slaughtered Romanovs and Saddam Hussein’s murderous sons Uday and Qusay.

The cancellation of Jorge Ramos' signature show (and subsequent repurposing of the veteran anchor's role) on Fusion tells us much more about the direction network has taken than it does about the controversial anchor. And no one should be surprised.

Media bias…is not a new thing. 

One of Rage Against the Machine’s big hits was “Bulls on Parade.”  Were anyone to pen a tune about the media -- “Lemmings on Parade” as a title would eminently work.

Just as the news media missed the boat in predicting the outcome of the 2016 election, their behavior in 2017 have shown they’ve learned absolutely nothing.

Levante la mano si usted pensó que Univision, entre todos los medios, sería la que desafiaría el protocolo mediático basado en la conciencia política y sería la más fáctica a la hora de cubrir las expresiones del asesino en Fresno tras su arresto. Asombrosamente, eso fue precisamente lo que ocurrió.

La necesidad de Univision de convertir a Donald Trump en el villano de toda noticia migratoria se está saliendo de control, como vemos en este reporte reciente desde un pueblo en el estado de Oaxaca, México, que ha cerrado sus puertas a los inmigrantes centroamericanos. Pero, ¿realmente tuvo Trumo algo que ver en esto, o habría algún otro factor en juego?

On Friday’s Access Hollywood, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King responded to the fact that she had recently vacationed in Tahiti with, among others, the Obama family, pathetically claiming that it was “not a political statement” and no big deal since her “friends” are out of the White House.

Yes, Brian Williams is supposedly and genuinely fearful about the future of American conservatism. On Thursday’s The 11th Hour, the disgraced anchor fretted to George Will on liberal MSNBC of all places about conservatism and that “[f]or many years, you were the Republican on mainstream media, before the days where every American woke up to a cable network custom designed to agree with them.”

In the moments following President Trump’s Thursday press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, MSNBC and its myirad of guests swiftly condemned Trump for referring to the deadly shooting in Paris on the Champs-Élysées as a terrorist attack.

The awkwardness for viewers of MSNBC’s The 11th Hour on Wednesday had to have been through the roof as host Brian Williams tried to tiptoe his way through covering Bill O’Reilly’s axing from the Fox News Channel. This awkwardness, of course, has to do with Williams’s own scandal from 2015 that led to his own downfall from NBC Nightly News.
