Journalists and CEOs from the leaders in the liberal media gathered last night at New York University for a panel discussion on the evolving media landscape, entitled: Media, Fake News, and the New Generation of Informed Citizens. Maggie Haberman from the New York Times, Ben Smith from Buzzfeed, Andy Lack of NBC News, and Richard Plepler of HBO were the major panelists, along with Axios CEO Jim VandeHei, who moderated the January 29 event.

 


Monday on ABC’s The View, Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) fielded questions that were a mixture of softballs and tough questions from the panel. The only co-host to ask the Democrat politician about Hillary Clinton’s latest scandal was Meghan McCain, who pressed Gillibrand to weigh in on her party’s former presidential candidate decision to keep an accused sex harasser on her 2008 campaign.



The morning after the politically-charged Grammy Awards, the liberal hosts at ABC’s The View were thrilled with the show’s anti-Trump agenda, but lone conservative host Meghan McCain called the display “tone-deaf.”

 


The media has been hard at work discrediting and downplaying President Trump’s first State of the Union address before it even happens. The annual presidential address will happen tomorrow evening on January 30, but on CNN’s New Day Monday, the liberal network was already whining that whatever Trump said would have no impact, because his presidency was irredeemable, by this time anyway.



What is more predictable than a never-ending well of virtue signaling from the cable news network that always seems to have a chip on its shoulder? After being roundly mocked for their “Apple vs. Banana” ad last Fall, CNN is back at it again with another fruit-related anti-Trump commercial.



CNN analyst and HLN host S.E. Cupp guest-hosted The View today, and used the occasion to push back against the table’s liberal spin. While talking about Stormy Daniels, Cupp called out the leftists in the media for choosing to believe the porn star’s account of her affair with President Trump, while they tore down and discredited President Clinton’s many accusers in the 1990s.

 


In the midst of complaining about President Trump boasting about the growing economy, during his speech in Davos this morning, CNN’s Jim Acosta took a break to whinge about the president’s brief jab at the press during the event. During a Q&A at the Friday forum, Trump explained that he had always had a good relationship with the press, until he entered politics.

 


Immediately following President Trump’s speech before business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this morning, CNN had the usual knee-jerk reaction to find something to complain about. Despite the abundance of stories of how Trump’s tax plan has benefitted countless companies who are passing on their saved money to their employees, CNN refused to give Trump credit for the positive economy news.



The liberal ladies of ABC’s The View were quick to choose sides in the feud between controversial actress Jane Fonda and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly on the January 23 episode of their show. After Kelly attacked Fonda as someone who had no moral authority to lecture others on what was “offensive,” after her history of anti-American activism in Vietnam, the View hosts gasped at Kelly’s nerve in going after the actress.



As if one feminist biopic about Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2018 wasn’t enough, CNN has partnered with two liberal production companies to release yet another one this year. CNN Films premiered their own documentary called, RBG, this past Sunday at Sundance Film Festival, and it is set to air on their network at a later date.



The liberal media are so reluctant to give President Trump credit for anything positive his legislation achieves, that they will even keep silent when that legislation directly benefits them.



Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff isn’t done promoting his tabloid-worthy book just yet. The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah welcomed Wolff as his guest January 22, and eagerly lapped up the liberal nonsense the controversial journalist was selling.

 


While the media loves when Democrats “burn” the president with a clever comment, they can’t handle it when he does the same back at them.

 


The View’s “Republican” co-hosts Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro had a spitfire exchange over who was to blame for the government shutdown during the January 22 show. After Navarro continued to attack the GOP’s response to the shutdown, McCain called her out as a hypocrite for still identifying as a Republican, yet defending Democrats at every chance she was given.



ABC led its Good Morning America coverage on day three of the government shutdown by sympathizing with Democrats over their plan to hold the government hostage until Republicans pass a spending bill with protections for DACA. Touting Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) blaming President Trump for not “negotiating” on the legislation, anchor George Stephanopoulos snapped at Sarah Sanders for suggesting that Schumer was playing political games over the spending bill.



CNN, the network that takes itself so seriously that they create ad campaigns defending themselves as “truth-tellers,” and whose reporters self-righteously rant they have the “right” and “duty” to call President Trump a “racist,” further embarrassed themselves this week by having their editor-at-large re-enact the president’s non-existent “workout routine” and write a whole snarky article about it, Thursday.

 


Immediately following President Trump’s historic live address from the Rose Garden to the March for Life this afternoon, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell tried to ignore the significant acknowledgement from a sitting president for the largest annual pro-life gathering every year, since Roe vs. Wade.



As they always do, ABC automatically knew who to blame for the possible federal government shutdown Saturday. ABC's political analyst Matthew Dowd compared the current situation to the Jimmy Carter era, on January 19th's Good Morning America, saying that Democrats had the upper hand with Americans' sympathies, because they didn’t have “control” of Congress or the White House.



As if their biased outbursts on CNN weren’t enough, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and political analyst April Ryan got the chance to unleash more of their rage at President Trump, in a friendly event hosted by the Newseum in Washington D.C., January 17, called “Journalism in the Trump Era.”

 


CNN’s Chris Cuomo certainly seems to have a selective memory when it comes to recalling how his own show has responded to Democrat and Republican “scandals.” After Senator Cory Booker launched an angry lecture against Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen for not remembering whether or not President Trump said “sh**hole” during a private White House meeting last week, the RNC took a note from the left, accusing Booker of “mansplaining” to Nielsen.
