Early Monday evening as details of a loud explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester England were first rolling in, something obviously very wrong as MSNBC’s chyron was reporting “at least 20 dead.” But for the network’s Law Enforcement Analyst Jim Cavanaugh on Hardball, the terrifying noise could have been anything, including a very loud balloon popping as he told host Chris Matthews.

Appearing as a guest on Monday's At This Hour with Kate Bolduan, CNN International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour predictably found the current right-leaning Israeli government to be "very far right" as she discussed the difficulty for President Donald Trump to successfully negotiate a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The CNN correspondent also failed to give any label to the Hamas terrorist group which rules the Gaza Strip as she vaguely informed viewers that the Palestinian Authority is "embroiled in a whole Hamas side of the equation."

On Sunday, CBS’s 60 Minutes and NBC Nightly News acted like P.R. reps for far-left illegal immigration groups, standing up for illegals and teaming with liberal churches leading “peaceful rebellions” to knock those seeking to enforce America’s laws.

Despite seeing pushback from both sides, one pregnant high schooler is choosing life for her “little guy.” On Saturday, The New York Times Correspondent Sheryl Gay Stolberg profiled high school student Maddi Runkles in her piece “Pregnant at 18. Hailed by Abortion Foes. Punished by Christian School.” The story comes a month after the pro-life heroine delivered a moving speech about her unexpected pregnancy and decision to keep her unborn baby – no matter the cost.

With President Trump visiting Israel Monday, the media have been pushing the narrative that President Obama was Israel’s protector, literally (see headlines below).

The 2-part season finale of Lifetime’s Mary Kills People, “The Judas Cradle” and “Morning Glory,” which aired Sunday night, wrapped up the season with this message: Those in favor of assisted suicide are “the good ones.” Those against assisted suicide are “bad guys.” Even in the midst of a murder investigation, her partner turning on her, and her daughter never wanting to speak to her again, Holy Mary (Caroline Dhavernas) still finds the time to kill people. She meets a man suffering from cystic fibrosis in a hotel room, and the two proceed to push the show’s justifications for assisted suicide, likening “refusing to let people die” to medieval torture.

CBS This Morning on Monday sounded like Iran’s state television, mocking that Donald Trump “is doing the bidding of American arms manufacturers.”  According to network journalists, Trump also “dashed” the hopes of moderates in the country and stealthily pleased “hardliners” with his Middle East speech. Using the repressive country’s talking points, Elizabeth Palmer sneered, “Iranians are waking up this morning to find themselves squarely back in the firing line of the White House. The view from here is that Donald Trump came to Saudi Arabia mainly as a sales rep for American arms manufacturers.”

NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared Friday night at the start of Fox's Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss the media's dramatic anti-Trump bias, recently documented in a study by Harvard's Shorenstein Center, especially the bias against any federal crackdown on illegal immigration. There's a presumption of racism and Islamophobia as the basis for Trump's policies.

As the final segment to cap off Thursday’s CBS Evening News, the network allowed former Face the Nation moderator Bob Schieffer go on a rambling commentary where he dubbed Trump “the ‘What If’ president.” The premise of his commentary was “what if” the Trump had listened to Obama about hiring Flynn, and didn’t make every other misstep he had since being elected. Schieffer appeared during CNN’s so-called Reliable Sources on Sunday to give commentary about his commentary.
