It’s no secret that many members of the press have been unhappy with the way President Donald Trump has usually dealt with the “mainstream media.” However, on Monday, April 24, New York Times White House Correspondent Glenn Thrush actually praised the way the administration has handled its daily press conferences.

Una vez más, Telemundo confla la inmigración legal con la ilegal, y se presta para tachar de "antiinmigrante" a cualquiera que se atreva a defender el cumplimiento de las leyes migratorias de este país. Esta vez, la cadena lo hizo con Bill O'Reilly a su salida de la cadena Fox News.
Once again Telemundo conflates legal immigration with illegal immigration, and levels the seemingly all-purpose 'anti-immigrant' smear at anyone who dares advocate for the enforcement of federal immigration laws. This time, the network did so by kicking Bill O'Reilly on his way out of Fox News.
A lawsuit filed against the Cable News Network and a number of its sister companies -- including the Turner Broadcasting System and Time Warner, Inc., -- claims that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races, and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a “glass ceiling.”
On Monday’s The Daily Show host Trevor Noah compared Fox News to North Korea’s state-controlled media. Noah began the segment playing a clip from FNC’s Justice With Judge Jeanine March 25 show, where host Jeanine Pirro is shown criticizing Paul Ryan for giving Trump a failed health care bill. Noah then mocks Pirro blaming Ryan for the healthcare bill not passing, instead of Trump for not being able to sell it. But he really goes over the top at one part, comparing Pirro’s fervent delivery to socialist propaganda:
For many years, liberal pundit Alan Colmes often provided the “balanced” part of the Fox News Channel motto of being “Fair and Balanced.” That came to abrupt end when the 66-year-old former stand-up comedian, radio host and co-host of the Hannity & Colmes weeknight news and interview program passed away after a brief illness on Thursday.
Ever since Greta Van Susteren resigned from her weeknight On the Record program for the Fox News Channel on September 6, a great deal of speculation has centered on where the former criminal defense and civil trial lawyer would turn up next, with many pundits predicting that she would join the team on MSNBC.
New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet criticized the coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign by the Cable News Network and the Fox News Channel as being “in the long run, bad for democracy and those institutions” in an interview with the Financial Times published on Friday.
“This mix of entertainment and news, and news masquerading as entertainment, is kind of funny except that we now have a guy who is a product of that world nominated as Republican presidential candidate,” Baquet stated.
While a guest on CBS's Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night, liberal actor/activist Sean Penn asserted that Americans have two options on November 8: “stick it out” under a Hillary Clinton presidency or “masturbate our way into hell” with Donald Trump.
According to an article posted by Jessica Chasmar -- a continuous news writer for the Washington Times -- Penn was on the program to promote an audio book he narrated entitled Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff that was written by author Pappy Pariah and will be a free download on October 20, but that didn't prevent the guest from speculating on the consequences of this year's presidential election.
The media’s favorite radical Muslim-rights advocacy group just released a new report on what else? Islamophobia. The Council for American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”), which the media routinely ask to speak for the American Muslim community and has it’s own share of controversy, is now attacking many on the right for daring to associate terrorism with Islam. As many as 74 groups, individuals and media outlets were branded by CAIR as the “U.S. Islamophobia Network” in their 2015 report, released just yesterday.
During Monday evening's edition of The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel, host Megyn Kelly clashed with DeRay Mckesson, an activist with the Black Lives Matter movement, over the decision handed down that morning finding Officer Edward Nero “not guilty” in the death of Freddie Gray.
Mckesson first noted: “What we know to be true is that Freddie Gray should be alive today, and what the judge said today was that Officer Nero was not found criminally responsible.” Kelly later asked her guest: “Don't you see a danger to the community if we start locking up cops for making a bad judgment call?”
“Words matter,” Fox Business Network anchor Neil Cavuto said during a “Common Sense” segment in which the managing editor of business news for the channel criticized Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump for accusing fellow candidate and Texas Senator Ted Cruz of being “worse than a puppet” and “a Trojan horse” for the GOP establishment.
When Cavuto stated “comments like that … risk making you look more like a horse's ass,” he was taking part in an ongoing controversy among the people of the Fox News Channel regarding how to treat Trump during coverage of the 2016 presidential election.
