These are posts slated for distribution via the Media Research Center’s NB Daily e-mail compilation of liberal media bias in national media coverage of politics and policy. The newsletter will be down for maintenance between July 25 through August 5, but you can read the same content on this page.

Journalists simply can’t get enough of Greta Thunberg, the radical 16-year-old Swedish climate activist who wants people to stop flying in order to save the planet. MSNBC hosts on Wednesday bashed their own kids as not living up to the great climate hero.
While CBS This Morning and ABC’s Good Morning America both devoted full reports on Monday to the arrest of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck on drug charges following two recent overdose deaths at his Los Angeles home, NBC’s Today show was remarkably silent on the major political news.
Comedian Chelsea Handler loves being browbeaten about her white privilege by woke millennial college students, apparently. On The View Wednesday, she admitted that in her new Netflix documentary about white privilege, she visited a liberal college campus where black students “took her to task” her about her own privilege. Handler said she even took sexual harassment and racial sensitivity classes, which “everyone” should be taking, she said.
Wednesday on The View, the panel roundly criticized former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday. As Democrats aggressively grilled Lewandowski, he refused to answer several questions and even slammed the media at one point. View co-host Joy Behar raged against both Lewandowski and Brett Kavanaugh’s temperament during their respective hearings as worse than “murderers and pimps.”
MSNBC commentator Elie Mystal is pretty proud of how much he hates the President, and apparently anyone who lives in one of his properties. So much so, that he boasted on Twitter that he fantasizes driving his car into a Trump condominium lobby.
In a segment that shockingly did not come out of The Babylon Bee, MSNBC, the network that came up with the phrase "Moscow Mitch" and other dignified political commentary that asserts that behind every Republican is a Russian stooge, decided it would be worth their while to give a wide-ranging interview to an actual Russian stooge, NSA leaker Edward Snowden, on Monday night's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams.
The “stunning and horrifying” discovery of over 2000 aborted babies in the home of a now-dead abortionist has drawn just scant coverage on the cable channels and nothing on the networks. The New York Times reported on the grisly finding, but relegated Ulrich Klopfer to page A-22 of the paper. The headline blandly explained, “More Than 2,200 Preserved Fetuses Found at Property of Dead Doctor, Officials Say.”
Following the liberal media outrage after former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was announced as a cast member for season 28 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, it was bound to resurface once it premiered Monday night. And right on cue, CNN host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo used his eponymous show Tuesday night to promptly freak out about how “President Trump's former press secretary/propagandist-in-chief-turned-lime limbo wannabe” invoked Christ to lobby for votes.
In the aftermath of The New York Times’ salacious hit piece accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, it came to light that the newspaper intentionally omitted key exculpatory facts. Looking at how The Times handled the publishing of this story, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume shredded the liberal rag for running with something unfit to print, even invoking the gravestone of a former Times editor.
One of the key reasons President Trump removed the United States from the so-called Paris climate accords was the fact that the U.S. was one of the few countries seriously trying to meet and exceed the goals that were set. While the liberal media decried the President’s move, the CBS Evening News may have inadvertently corroborated his point on Tuesday when they noted the United Nations’ attempt to “reboot the accords”.
While the liberal broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC have spent nearly 32 minutes (31 minutes, 47 seconds) hyping the disintegrating bombshell against Justice Brettt Kavanaugh over the past three days, they have withheld from viewers how Christine Blasey Ford friend (and supposed corroborating witness) Leland Keyser now states that she has does not believe Ford’s account.
On Tuesday's New Day show, as John Avlon recited a piece on the history of Presidents facing opponents within their own party, the CNN political analyst took a gratuitous cheap shot at Pat Buchanan's 1992 Republican convention speech by vaguely likening him to Adolf Hitler. The crack had nothing to do with the overall point of the segment.
