One CNBC anchor thinks the media are “in cahoots with the hating party” and it’s hurting the president’s ability to function with Congress. Squawk Box co-anchor Joe Kernen blasted the media for unequivocal support of Democrat obstruction of President Donald Trump’s economic agenda. He specifically criticized the liberal press for ignoring one Congresswoman’s impeachment obsession. In his view, the hatred the liberal media exhibited towards former President George W. Bush looked like a “love relationship” compare to coverage of Trump.
Imagine CBS goading Barack Obama to work with House Republicans in 2016 to repeal ObamaCare? Doesn’t seem likely, right? Well, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell on Thursday pressed Paul Ryan as to whether he is working with Nancy Pelosi on health care. Talking to the Speaker of the House in an “exclusive” interview, O’Donnell demanded, “Have you reached out to the Democrats yet to work on this bill? Pelosi?”
Repercussions from the clash between White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and journalist April Ryan on Tuesday, March 28, continued to be felt the following day, when MSNBC anchor Chris Jansing hosted a discussion on the incident and the definition of racism.

When it comes to Planned Parenthood, the liberal media have a selective memory, or rather, a selective agenda. Even if that means, it would seem, hiding innocent blood shed from the American public.

Providing cover for the Democratic Party’s unpopular decision to filibuster Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, on Thursday, NBC’s Today skipped the network's own new poll showing 54% of Americans opposed Democratic efforts to block a Senate vote on the judge.

Evelyn Farkas used to be the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia/Ukraine/Eurasia under President Obama. Now, like former Press Secretary Josh Earnest, she’s made the move over to NBC News as a National Security Analyst. Claiming that her previous statements had been misunderstood, Farkas insisted to the Squawk Box panel that she was only explaining “why people might be motivated to do that.” Later she seemed to imply that the Trump administration would threaten intelligence sources when she said “people could get hurt, if people were giving us information.”
Thursday on Morning Joe, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski spent a large part of the show discussing Sean Spicer’s reaction to reporter April Ryan during Tuesday's White House press conference. This prompted each of them to question his "stability" and "credibility." Brzezinski introduced the segment with: “Yesterday I was questioning Sean Spicer's credibility because I really think it's at risk, in jeopardy or shot. If you really think about it and go through kind of a time-line. Now you might want to add questioning his stability. In yesterday's press brief– did you see him yesterday? He kind of snapped.”

The United States took a step to fight the country’s opioid epidemic on Wednesday, as President Donald Trump launched a new commission to look into to problem. The commission will be headed up by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, but you wouldn’t know much about any of that if you were watching ABC’s World News Tonight.

The second episode of Fox's Shots Fired, “Hour Two: Betrayal of Trust,” which aired on March 29, continued to perpetrate the false narrative that police harass and deny justice to black people.

Acting as though he’s a bystander in a superhero movie or watching one on TV, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews swooned on Wednesday that, with Senators Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), he may have found some “heroes” that would investigate and/or prove collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.
In a clear effort to discredit President Donald Trump and keep Hillary Clinton clean, CBS Anchor Scott Pelley dismissed claims that the Clinton family received payments from Russia for American Uranium. “Well, today, President Trump sewed confusion on the Russian investigation.
