Axios national political reporter Jonathan Swan has the reputation of being the objective person in the room when he’s on panels often dominated by open partisans and media folks pushing left-wing narratives. In an appearance during ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Swan popped a few liberal bubbles when it came to suggestions that President Trump’s tweets about former VP Joe Biden meant he was afraid. He also mocked the bluster of Congressional Democrats and their arbitrary deadlines.

Just over a week after the FBI and IRS raided her Maryland home and City Hall office, the Democratic mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh resigned in disgrace Thursday after selling copies of her children’s book to companies doing business with the city. As with what happened last week, CBS Evening News completely ignored the story which made national headlines. The only resignation they were interested in Thursday evening was the one Democrats were calling for from Attorney General William Barr.
After his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, congressional Democrats and the liberal media were in sync as they accused Attorney General William Barr of lying to Congress.

Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a reprieve from wandering the woods of upstate New York to make an appearance during Wednesday’s The Rachel Maddow Show. The MSNBC host was ecstatic to have the former Secretary of State on her show once again; this time to talk about the findings of the Mueller Report and bash Attorney General William Barr for executing the duties of his office.
It’s not often that CNN gets to share their more vulgar thoughts against President Trump. So, when Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) read a text message from anti-Trump FBI investigators calling the President a “f***ing idiot” on live TV (uncensored) during the hearing with AG Barr on Wednesday, CNN got to live vicariously through Trump critics that didn’t need to worry about FCC violations and fines.
You know, for all the liberal media’s talk political language inciting violence, you would think MSNBC would be keener and watch the words they use. Immediately following Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday afternoon, serial liar Brian Williams took to MSNBC Live and was infatuated with the radical California Senator Kamala Harris (D) and how she had “drew blood” from the AG. Gross.
With The Washington Post publishing select excerpts of a letter Special Counsel Robert Mueller purportedly sent to Attorney General William Barr expressing some level of displeasure with the original four-page memo to Congress, CNN was off to the races on Tuesday night with all sorts of speculation and doom and gloom soothsaying at it pertained to the fate of the AG.
First, the liberal media refused the admit there was a crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. Then, they said there was and it was all President Trump’s fault.

In an energized appearance on the Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson Tonight Monday to talk about the pompous White House Correspondents Dinner, talk radio host Chris Plante blasted the liberal media for their First Amendment hypocrisy between Presidents Obama and Trump.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was in western Pennsylvania on Monday visiting union workers for his campaign’s first rally. The liberal media that had stopped running President Trump’s campaign rallies live did the opposite for Uncle Joe. During Monday’s World News Tonight, ABC News hyped the event and bragged about how Biden was “getting under the President's skin.”
What makes tragic shootings like the one at Chabad of Poway on Saturday even worse was how predictable the liberal media were when it came to politicizing it. During Sunday’s so-called Reliable Sources on CNN, host Brian Stelter teased his coverage of the attack by wondering if it was “another case of a killer radicalized on right-wing message boards”. Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik went so far as to claim President Trump had opened “the Gates of Hell”.
Despite President Trump’s strong condemnation of the recent synagogue shooting at the Chabad of Poway and anti-Semitism as a whole at a rally Saturday night, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd blamed Trump for the shooting during Sunday’s This Week on ABC.

On Thursday, The New York Times international edition ran a political cartoon that was supposed to show Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leading a blind President Trump around.

Worse yet, when they finally responded to the outcry on Saturday, the Editor’s Note the paper put out noted the offensive nature of the image but didn’t apologize.
NewsBusters has kept track of the liberal media’s lack of or minimal coverage of many of the scandals plaguing Democratic politicians, but ABC and NBC shockingly reported on the mayor of Baltimore getting raided by the FBI and the IRS on Thursday. Meanwhile, CBS Evening News omitted the story entirely from its broadcast.
Massachusetts Judge Shelly Joseph was federally charged with obstruction of justice on Thursday for allegedly helping an illegal immigrant evade capture by an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer. It’s not the person liberals hoped would get charged with obstruction, so that might partially explain why CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News avoided covering the topic that evening.
With a video trying to tie President Trump to white supremacists, former Vice President Joe Biden threw his hat into the 2020 ring Thursday. That video won him the praise of the liberal media as both CBS and NBC kicked off their evening news broadcasts with his announcement. Each of the Big Three networks boasted about the video while downplaying his inappropriate touching scandals.
