On Thursday night, ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel continued his new role as a senior propagandist for the Democratic Party, this time accusing the President of being a racist.


Google’s new fact-checker is just as bias as you would expect. On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that the feature, for the most part, only targets conservative sites. For example, both The Daily Caller and Daily Wire are fact checked (and mostly incorrectly as the two sites point out), but Vox, HuffPost, ThinkProgress, Slate, Salon, Mother Jones, and Daily Kos are not.


In June, the school hired Chassity Holliman-Douglas as its first Vice President and Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion in response to the student uprising. PBS NewsHour interviewed her in an article published on Sunday titled “‘These conversations are not comfortable’ — How colleges can address racial inequality.” Authors Corinne Legal and Ivette Feliciano wanted to know “how predominantly white institutions can work to support all students and what Evergreen is doing nearly a year after the events.”


On Wednesday, CNN legal analyst Paul Callan came to the defense of those questioning the FBI’s and Department of Justice’s objectivity regarding the investigations of Trump officials and Hillary Clinton.


On Tuesday’s MSNBC Live with Katy Tur, Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) expressed her “concern” that the President “is systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the Presidency.”  Of course, Tur provided no challenge.


This past Sunday on CNN’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter asked this irony-filled question to NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik: “You and I have covered Fox News for years. Is it appropriate to call the channel a news channel?”


On Tuesday, NRATV released yet another video responding to false attacks from the New York Times and the Washington Post. In the video, Grant Stinchfield goes after the media and exposes their hypocrisy.


On Friday, CNN sent out an alert for an article suggesting Americans are murderers and are responsible for the death of a woman killed in a flood. Why? Because Americans contribute to climate change. This misuse of alerts normally reserved for actual news is nothing new. CNN now promotes propaganda via mobile alerts on a regular basis.


The sports media, but really the media as a whole, have been waging a crusade on America on behalf of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick being the miserable quarterback who kneeled in protest of each pregame national anthem last season, because, you know, America is a horrible place.


On Saturday, MSNBC analyst and global editorial director of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group Howard Fineman suggested that people of Eric Boling's political orientation will invariably commit sexual harassment.


SiriusXM talk show host and Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah appeared on Monday afternoon's MSNBC Live with host Ali Velshi to blame a recent mosque bombing on, you guessed it, President Donald J. Trump. Obeidallah frantically cried: "He demonized our community where what we're seeing today, the climate we live in is thanks to a man named Donald J. Trump, who is President of the United States...and it's a time of fear that's palpable..."


CNN New Day co-host Chris Cuomo always does his best to push climate change propaganda. On Tuesday morning, he had the following to say: “he president has called climate change everything from a hoax invented by the Chinese, to not really understood, and maybe there's something to it. He's vacillated at best. It's become a little bit of a pet for the right fringe of his party playing with the realities of science.” 


On Friday's Cavuto: Coast to Coast, host Neil Cavuto exposed the ridiculous and inappropriate Newsweek cover article calling the president "lazy" and declaring his presidency a failure. "This article has no point." He pointed out that the media also quickly declared Reagan to be a failure. "This ain't fair, this ain't right. Not remotely fair, or remotely balanced."


CNN host Chris Cuomo sparred with White House counsel Kellyanne Conway once again Thursday night. Conway called out the network for their obsession with the Trump-Russia story.


The Democratic Party can always count on CNN New Day co-host Chris Cuomo to push their talking points for them. On Wednesday, Cuomo spewed nonsense about President Trump's support for reforming Dodd-Frank, the "Consumer Protection Agency," and the EPA's Waters of the United States rule.


Mark Levin blasted the news media for going bonkers over Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer and ignoring more important stories about Fusion GPS, Obama's unlawful surveillance activities, and the Clintons' Russian ties.


As socialist Venezuela implodes, the media has been strangely silent on the matter. But, the lack of coverage isn't so strange considering the media's love for Venezuela's former socialist dictator Hugo Chavez and his leftist ideology. As Ben Shapiro at The Daily Wire points out, the media swooned over Chavez.


There is no depth that The Washington Post will not sink to in order to ridicule President Trump. On Tuesday afternoon, this story was published: "President Trump’s reference to ‘paddy wagon’ insults Irish Americans like me"


The media's obsession with anything that can be reported negatively on Trump is made so much worse by what they do not report. Networks like CNN refuse to cover stories that do not fit their leftist narrative. Tuesday morning on New Day, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) pointed out the blatant lack of coverage of Fusion GPS's ties to Russia and Debbie Wasserman Schultz's connection to criminal Capitol Hill IT workers.


The left's inability to accept Hillary Clinton's defeat has led them to fabricate the story that much of America is dumb, racist, homophobic, and sexist. As Fareed Zakaria of CNN put it: "A real sense of cultural alienation that the older white, non-college educated Americans have the sense that their country is changing because of immigrants. Because maybe blacks are getting -- rising up to a kind of central place in society. Because of, you know, gays being afforded equal rights. Because of, frankly, a lot of working women."
