Apparently if you defend the 1st Amendment, you are guilty of hate speech. That’s the argument put forth by several news outlets -- ABC, NBC, CNN -- and even Teen Vogue. On Tuesday night, June 11, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a speech to the members of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a religious freedom group. The ADF is assisting the Supreme Court case involving Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who refused to bake a gay wedding cake.


During a Bastille Day press conference on Thursday with President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, a male French reporter from BFM-TV tried to bait Macron into attacking Trump over his immigration policies and knock Trump down for previous statements about French terror attacks.


Time magazine’s cover story emerging on Thursday is naturally, Donald Trump Jr. in black and white, behind the words “Red Handed: The Russia Scandal Hits Home.” It’s also natural and expected that Time’s David Von Drehle forecasted a monster storm: “Like a farmer forecasting the weather by the ache in his knee, Washington has a feeling that this storm could be a monster." But Time didn't used to think Russia was a "fierce rival." They used to be a threat that "never was."


The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) evening news shows have been dominated by Donald J. Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower – a meeting in which apparently no favors, money or meaningful information was exchanged – but those same shows all but ignored Hillary Clinton’s Russia-Uranium scandal back in 2015. At the time, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was considered the favorite to win the Democratic nomination but the networks couldn’t care less. Total amount of Big Three evening news network coverage in over two years? Just 3 minutes and 1 second. 


The president of America’s largest abortion provider is “excited” to inspire Americans with her story. But what she won’t say, is that it’s a story that relies on the destruction of millions of others’ stories. Stories – lives – lost in abortion.


Top White House aide Sebastian Gorka got into a contentious, fiery argument with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Wednesday, deriding that it’s “sad to see CNN fall to this.” To Cooper’s face, he challenged, “I know you want salacious, sensational coverage for your ratings, so your corporate sponsors and owners will have, you know, more money. But that's not media. That's not reportage. It's just fake news.” 


All that work. All that effort. And it was all flushed down the toilet due to being scooped by Donald Trump, Jr. on July 11 when he released his private emails with a British publicist concerning a Russian lawyer. A full year of investigating...GONE! Such was the complaint of journalist Jared Yates Sexton as he hilariously whined on Twitter on July 11 how Donald Trump, Jr. scooped him earlier in the day with his email release. His angst was chronicled that same day by the Conservative Review, Journo melts down after Trump Jr. scoops him.


Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's The 11th Hour on MSNBC, presidential historian and former Newsweek editor-in-chief Jon Meacham took a whack at Donald Trump supporters as he asserted that Republicans have "Stockholm Syndrome" and have "sold their souls" in supporting Trump's election as president. A bit earlier, fellow panel member and liberal columnist Connie Schultz suggested that the political debate over replacing Obamacare is causing "anxiety" in people that requires treatment from doctors.


CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota couldn't resist taking sides on Thursday's New Day or maybe she was just doing her "job." However you want to describe it, Camerota once again exposed her network’s frothing hatred for Donald Trump. She claimed that the President would have sold uranium to Russia. 


Religion in politics is seemingly so far removed from the media’s idea of normalcy that a picture of the President praying left one CNN anchor struggling to find words, Wednesday.

 

Abortion and cherry pies: that’s what Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards does best. According to People magazine, she is the “Wonder Woman” of abortion rights. The interview, posted on People on July 12, called the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation a “passionately committed dynamo” who is “marshaling thousands in the battle” for lots of abortions.


The White House Correspondents Association wasn't just phony when it claimed it wasn't going to hire someone to "roast" President Trump at their annual dinner, and then put on Muslim comedian Hasan Minhaj to roast Trump. This group of reporters is trying to change their by-laws to create a non-voting second tier of members....that caste of undesirables (or "deplorables"?) who cannot get credentialed by the "mainstream" press gallery on Capitol Hill. At the moment, that's directed right at Breitbart, and their White House reporter Charlie Spiering, but it could easily apply to others. 


The 25th ESPY awards were cruising along. Peyton Manning was hilarious as host. His comedy was sparkling. Peyton, the newest and overly competitive resident at an assisted living center, cheating to beat seniors at shuffle board. Peyton, the happy host of a Super Bowl party, assuring his friends the game was "over" and the Falcons were assured of victory, only to grow more agitated as the Patriots rallied to win and finally chucking a football through the TV screen.


Following the revelations found in Donald Trump Jr.’s e-mails earlier in the week, the media have put greater focus on President Trump’s close-knit family. So late Wednesday night, during CNN Tonight, the network’s presidential historian Douglas Brinkley went on an angry rant where he railed against the Trumps as a family. And in addition, made baseless accusations about what White House staffers thought about them and their desire to work there.


Every now and then, there comes a show that is so full of offensive material that you don’t even know where to start. Enter Freeform’s The Bold Type.
