March 15 on ABC’s The View, the table briefly discussed the potential firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is under fire from the Justice Department for allowing FBI officials to talk to reporters about sensitive information regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation, and then going on to mislead Justice Department investigators in their review of this behavior.



CNN, the alleged “facts first” network, made an absurd and egregious comparison last night on Twitter, demonizing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials as comparable to the Nazis. In a March 14 tweet, CNN touted their own report of a Jewish woman taking in illegal immigrants, “driven by thoughts of the Holocaust:”



On the Wednesday edition of the table’s “Hot Topics,” The View's hosts opened the show by having a heated argument over the nationwide walkouts happening in schools everywhere today, in protest of the Parkland school shooting. Lone conservative host Meghan McCain let the others lead the conversation for several minutes, saying she respected the students’ right to protest, before adding that she didn’t like how these protests and pro-gun people were being covered by the media.



News broke March 13 that a Florida teen had been arrested, after stabbing to death his friend and attempting to kill his friend’s mother and another peer at a sleepover. The suspect confessed afterwards that he had recently converted to Islam and his beliefs had motivated him to murder. While the horrific violent act was covered by local news in Jupiter, Florida, and nationally March 14 by Fox News Channel, the big three networks have ignored the story thus far.

 


Tuesday morning on Good Morning America, ABC failed to lead with the pivotal news that broke last night on the ongoing Russia investigation; that the House Intelligence Committee had concluded their investigation and found no proof of collusion between Russia and the Trump 2016 presidential campaign.

 


Longtime late night television producer Peter Lassally sat down with CBS News correspondent Mo Rocca on CBS’s Sunday Morning March 11, to discuss his illustrious life and career in Hollywood. Somehow along the way, Lassally found a way to insert President Trump into the somber conversation about what his life was like as a boy living in a concentration camp under Nazi rule.



To kick of his Sunday evening show on CNN March 11, host Van Jones warmly welcomed media mogul Oprah Winfrey by fangirling over how much he missed seeing her on television and pleading with her to give "us" “hope” for America’s future, with President Trump in office.



After spending Thursday evening giving President Trump glowing praise for being the first sitting U.S. president to get North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to agree to a meeting, CNN was still flabbergasted the following morning on March 9’s New Day. Remarkably, anchor Alisyn Camerota even confronted a Democrat politician on-air and demanded to know why his party wouldn’t acknowledge the president’s accomplishments.



ABC’s The View started off their show, March 8, by blasting White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as an incompetent liar, and eagerly hoping the Stormy Daniels lawsuit would produce physical evidence to impeach President Trump.

 


As she’s done before on The View, host Meghan McCain gave a strong pro-life argument from the table of liberals, amidst their cheerleading for feminism on the March 8 show, which fell on International Women’s Day. McCain argued with fellow host Joy Behar that feminism wasn’t as straightforward as the dictionary definition. “[Does feminism include] the rights of unborn women as well?” McCain asked upfront.

 


As they’ve done before, the women at The View used the latest controversy over President Trump as a way to complain that President Obama had it worse. As news broke that porn star Stormy Daniels was back in the news again, suing President Trump, the View hosts whined that this story was just more proof of how Trump got away with everything, yet Obama faced unfair scrutiny.

 


As they are bound to do, the media has revealed yet again their staggering double standard in how they treat president’s daughters, when it comes to accounting for their own father’s controversies. On March 6’s The View, the ABC hosts had the audacity to ask former first daughter Chelsea Clinton to weigh in on Ivanka’s response to that question, without noting that Chelsea had also refused to answer a similar question posed to her in 2008, while she was campaigning for her mother’s presidential run.



Chelsea Clinton is making the media rounds promoting her new feminist children’s book, She Persisted Around the World, and made a stop at CBS’s The Late Show early morning, March 6 to talk about it. But as is typical for anti-Trump host Stephen Colbert, his interview questions focused heavily on his hatred for the president. Colbert practically begged the former first daughter to curse at President Trump in a pitifully transparent display.



The New York Times’ Michelle Goldberg had a mini-meltdown on CNN Sunday night, over President Trump and journalists joking with each other at the annual “roast” Gridiron Dinner. Goldberg slammed the event as “disgraceful” and “not a laughing matter” on CNN Newsroom with Ana Cabrera, March 4.



Friday on ABC’s The View, liberal host Joy Behar battled conservative host Meghan McCain over whether or not Hollywood was unfair to conservatives and Trump supporters, particularly during awards shows. Speaking about the upcoming Academy Awards this weekend, hosted by late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel, the panel wondered how the host was going to maneuver through the cultural and political landmines currently in the headlines, from guns to sexual harassment.



The same network that touts just one regular “conservative” analyst, David Brooks --- who many would argue isn’t even really a conservative --- announced Wednesday that they were launching a "conservative" political talk show, debuting April 13. Called In Principle, the PBS show will reportedly follow in the style of William F. Buckley’s Firing Line, which aired from 1966 to 1999.



In a gushy interview with Variety magazine, Hollywood entertainer Barbra Streisand revealed she still is very much suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Talking about the Parkland shooting, the singer and actress blamed the president, saying he inspired the shooter. “[He] brings out the violence in people!” she gushed. Streisand also bizarrely claimed the election was rigged and that Hillary Clinton was the one who actually won the election.

 


ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel admitted on Good Morning America today that he wasn’t going to address Hollywood’s problem with sexual assault, while hosting this year’s Academy Awards, because he didn’t want to “make it unpleasant.” However, he also confessed that he didn’t regret “anything” he’s said against President Trump, Republicans and the millions of legal gun owners in this country.



The liberal hosts of ABC’s The View opened Monday by opining how awful the modern conservative movement was, on their February 26 show. The hosts bashed this year’s CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) guests as “extremists” who were once considered part of the “fringe” but were now the majority of the Republican party.



Actor and activist Jesse Williams appeared briefly on The View, February 23, where he compared the media’s coverage of the Parkland shooter to the Black Lives Matter movement. The liberal Grey’s Anatomy star claimed that the media always spun shootings in favor of the white “oppressor class” while it demonized black kids shot by police.
