Well, I’ll say this about Spike’s The Mist, I was only half-right about my recent prediction. Instead of a molesting priest, we get the fanatic of a violent one threatening heretics. I would say that’s a pleasant surprise, but what we get is hardly a pleasant substitute. Come to think of it, it’s not even a surprise.


Thursday’s NBC Nightly News featured one of the classic tricks in the liberal media playbook as Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt declined to disclose the liberal activist history of a woman in her story about the Senate push to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Prior to the live shot at the end of her segment, Hunt explained that “all the uncertainty” about ObamaCare “worries Theresa Bohannan” because “[h]er son was born with a rare heart condition.”


It’s not just the TV networks that are ignoring or downplaying the Imran Awan-Debbie Wasserman Schultz scandal. The nation’s newspapers are barely getting their feet wet. A quick Nexis search shows The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times have yet to report it, while The Washington Post and USA Today just reported smaller stories in Thursday’s papers. ABC, NBC, MSNBC, NPR, and the PBS NewsHour were missing as of Thursday. 


Amidst all the warranted coverage of White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s disturbingly vulgar tirade about Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News ignored the poignant White House event honoring the law enforcement officers who responded to the June 14 congressional GOP baseball shooting.


It has been announced today that Showtime has given the go ahead for a 10 episode series of animated shows about President Donald Trump to air this Fall. So will this cartoon series be done in the spirit of good fun such as the way Vaughn Meader satirized John F. Kennedy in his First Family album over 50 years ago? Well, the fourth sentence of this Variety article reveals that probably won't be the case. 


Following the overreactions on July 26 to President Trump’s twitter announcement, host of The Late Late Show James Corden decided to express his anger in a more musical fashion. Sung to the tune of the 1964 classic “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole, Corden made several swipes at Trump. “POTUS thinks it’s unsavory/Patriots who know real bravery/Trump’s got hate for me and you,” he crooned.


Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes dropped by the Thursday edition of FBN’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast and showcased the latest example of the liberal media’s refusal to cover both the latest Trump controversies and positive stories like Wednesday’s Foxconn jobs announcement.


Remember when late night TV shows were supposed to be funny and entertaining? No more. Late Night With Seth Meyers writers filed on stage July 26 to recite a collective attack against the President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka. And of course, the liberal media – from HuffPost to Rolling Stone joined in their ‘group troll.’


One of the core ideological issues that determines a person’s political philosophy is the degree to which one believes that unfavorable external circumstances can be overcome via persistence and hard work. If an individual believes that America is a place so racist, so intractably bigoted that few, if any, minorities will escape from its systemically corrupt clutches, it naturally follows that one would advocate for governmental redistribution of wealth from the benefactors of Rawlsian chance to those with an almost Calvinist predestination for serfdom. Conversely, those who recognize, to varying degrees, the agency of people in adverse socioeconomic conditions to overcome such obstacles will be more likely to advocate for less government involvement in wealth redistribution. In other words, it is a point of gigantic political contention.


Thursday on ABC’s The View, the hosts had on former Ferguson police chief, Tom Jackson, to talk about his new book about his experience in Ferguson during the Michael Brown shooting. During the conversation, Jackson tried to dispel many of the media myths concerning the shooting of Brown, but instead he got an earful from hosts Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg about the credibility of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”

 

On Thursday, The Hill reporter Joe Concha put the media on notice. Speaking about the news that a staffer for Florida Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had been arrested trying to flee the country, he blasted the liberal media for ignoring the scandal.


0.01% looks like a small percentage, but $69,000,000 is an enormous number. That’s how much the military would spend on healthcare in 2018 for its 250 transgender members currently in transition, according to NBC’s online article. But instead of focusing on numbers like that, the network news shows touted “outrage” against Trump and interviewed experts claiming the president’s tweets “harm national security.”

During their evening news shows July 26, the three broadcast networks expressed anger, while some ignored critical numbers. NBC Nightly News’ White House Correspondent Kristen Welker reported that, “The latest report shows medical costs for transgender troops represent a small fraction of the overall defense budget.” According to NBC, there are 250 active transgender military members currently in the medical process of “transitioning.”


The taxpayer-funded liberal sandbox known as NPR lowered itself to a Newt Gingrich interview on Wednesday’s Morning Edition, and Gingrich was combatively countering the media narrative on the Russia probe. He insisted special counsel Robert Mueller and fired FBI director Jim Comey represent a “very liberal” Justice Department that has identified no crime to investigate. NPR anchor Rachel Martin was flustered trying to assert the usual liberal-media talking points...and then NPR actually brought on its own political correspondent Domenico Montanaro to rebut Gingrich.


CBS This Morning journalists on Thursday defended the practice of leaking from officials inside the White House and said that investigations cracking down can lead to “terror” inside an administration. Talking about efforts by Anthony Scaramucci to eliminate the leaks, John Dickerson explained, “The problem with leak investigations in all past White Houses is that it clamps down on people inside of the White House. It creates an atmosphere of a little bit of terror.” 


On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon declared that President Donald Trump's announced policy of barring transgenders from serving in the military would be a "return to the dark ages." He then proceeded to command over two panels on the subject in which each panel featured just one right-leaning guest to defend the policy up against two liberal guests plus host Lemon to advocate the liberal view.
