But a meeting with former Vice President Al Gore suggests that he's thinking about the issue.”

According to Brent Bozell, liberal journalists are “being neutered” by Donald Trump as he goes around them and talks directly to Americans. Appearing on Varney and Co., the MRC president discussed Trump’s use of Twitter. Bozell concluded, “I see CNN and others growing as well because of their opposition to Trump. However, I see them being neutralized. And I see them being neutered, again, because Donald Trump will go around them, not talk to them.”

The liberal media was still up in arms Monday night over President-Elect Donald Trump accepting a congratulatory phone call from the president of the island of Taiwan. “Already, Trump has caused quite a stir on the world stage,” whined ABC’s Jon Karl on World News Tonight, “Ruffling China’s feathers by talking to the president Taiwan.” While chastising the president-elect for his phone call and selected defense tweets, they failed to mention the nearly two billion dollars in arms sales to Taiwan under President Barack Obama.

Filling in for MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell on Monday, NBC national correspondent Peter Alexander wrung his hands over President-elect Donald Trump using social media to circumvent the liberal media: “...one of the real challenges here with social media is that Donald Trump can spew an idea that millions of people voted illegally and ultimately not be pressed to defend such a thing. We just talked about fake news, this sort of stuff propels a lot of people to believe it.”

On Monday's CNN Newsroom, The Daily Beast's Dean Obeidallah bewailed the apparent power of "fake news," particularly after the Sunday shooting at a Washington, D.C. restaurant at the center of the "Pizzagate" issue. Obeidallah proposed a hypothetical scenario: "I wonder if a Muslim guy went to a pizza place with a gun...how that would have went down — I think much worse." The liberal pundit later claimed that "Donald Trump...is the great purveyor of fake news," and that "good people [are] misinformed; and in this case, this man was radicalized online. This is no different than ISIS radicalizing someone."

NBC’s Nightly News on Sunday offered the most gushing coverage of Fidel Castro’s funeral, mourning the “tears of sorrow and cries of patriotism.” Reporter Morgan Radford referred to Castro as a man with a “complicated legacy.” Yet, she never explained what that meant or mentioned the dictator’s decades of oppression and violence. Instead, Radford got caught up in the drama of the funeral, recounting, “Tears of sorrow and cries of patriotism."

On Saturday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of recent instances of apparent Donald Trump supporters being recorded in public places being rowdy and sometimes saying racist things to strangers, former CNN correspondent Maria Hinojosa complained that the "mainstream media" have caused whites to be afraid of immigrants.

CNN’s Brian Stelter took his anti-Donald Trump bias to new heights Sunday during his show Reliable Sources, where he argued that the media had to start referring to the president-elect as an authoritarian. “I talk to international correspondents who say to you, ‘This is exactly what authoritarians do. This is what strongmen do. This is what happens in authoritarian regimes,’” he claimed, “I think we need to start using those words on TV, at least, to discuss the possibilities before us.”
