The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared on the Fox Business Network, Friday, to blast a journalistic double standard on Donald Trump’s “wealthy” cabinet. Responding to the Washington Post's whining about net worth, the MRC research director highlighted, “President-elect Trump is picking people with actual success. They're not wealthy by chance. They are wealthy because they're successful. You think he would want to bring that kind of success and track record into government. But the media are rebelling against it.”
Appearing as a panel member on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, during a discussion of Muslim-Americans "self-radicalizing' and becoming terrorists, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones at one point blamed Donald Trump for allegedly causing some to "self-radicalize."

Trump kind of helps make people radical, but go ahead."

They spoke of how much it meant to them to honor the traditions that inspired the story.
Brent Bozell on Friday mocked the liberal media, saying journalists would have fainted if Barack Obama had saved the Carrier jobs that Donald Trump preserved. He also pointed out the hypocrisy of reporters who ignore the current President saying the positions would never be saved. Appearing on Fox News, the MRC President reminded, “If I'm a journalist covering this issue, why am I not covering the fact that the President-elect succeeded? The President who is stepping down ridiculed him for this. That's a real story. And you're not going to see that covered anywhere. Fox had it, but nobody else had it.”
On her MSNBC show on Friday, anchor Andrea Mitchell decried the fact that the usual liberal identity politics did not work with voters in November’s election.

You don’t often hear this kind of bluntness on MSNBC. But Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough on Friday lashed out at journalistic coverage of the 2016 race, saying, “If you get it wrong as consistently as the media has gotten it wrong, then at some point Americans just turn off the media. They stop listening to us!” While discussing President-elect Donald Trump’s “Thank You Tour,” Scarborough and his panelists became introspective over the media’s failure to predict the state of the race.
CBS This Morning on Friday promoted a push by members of the Rockefeller family and others to attack ExxonMobil over climate change. Left out of the report?

In the hours following President-elect Donald Trump’s Thursday night post-election rally, the liberal media’s utter inability to control their emotions could have united even the most ardent Never Trump supporters with examples like MSNBC national correspondent Joy Reid suddenly showing reservations about a president and his immediate family lacking military service despite it being the case for two of the last three First Families (Clinton and Obama).
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The Daily Show on Comedy Central, liberal comedian Chelsea Handler slammed women who refused to vote for Hillary Clinton as she declared that "there's something wrong with you," and cracked that women need to "get rid of" their husbands because they are "listening to their husbands too much." She also complained that women should have supported Clinton "whether you f****** like her or not."
