At a forum in California recently aired by C-SPAN, two news media veterans admitted – what all too many of their colleagues still deny – that liberal bias and overt hostility to Donald Trump is hurting the country and threatening to destroy the relevance of journalism. 



On Thursday, Mike Bloomberg's campaign tweeted out a humorous video trying to make more out of the two seconds of silence when he asked his fellow Democrat candidates ever started a business. (They haven't.) He showed brief clips of the other candidates with blank looks -- from other moments in the debate -- and included the sound of crickets. The "fact checkers" went crazy. Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler gave it Four Pinocchios. PolitiFact gave it a "Mostly False." Washington Examiner reporter Becket Adams said they're "maybe taking themselves a bit too seriously."



After the devastatingly poor performance Michael Bloomberg delivered at the Democrat debate in Las Vegas, he tells a group of billionaire businessmen that he is having second thoughts about buying the election. In the February 23 episode of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President, Bloomberg decides to recruit Hillary Clinton to run in his place.



No random opening is too small for a primetime show to incorporate the name of President Trump into an episode. An example of this is seen in the February 23 episode of Fox’s The Simpsons.



Though The New York Times is undeniably liberal in its reporting, it has been distinctly cool in coverage of the most left-wing Democratic candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). It was obvious back in 2016, when reporters tried to pester Sanders out of the race against Hillary Clinton. Is it principled ideology on the part of reporters, or partisan fear? Either way, the paper fired a shot across Bernie’s bow Sunday with a story bluntly warning Sanders he better watch out, then laid out why, even using an old insult to Ronald Reagan: “Sanders, the Teflon Candidate, Faces New Tests as a Front-Runner.”



As The Hill media reporter Joe Concha reported on Sunday, Hardball host Chris Matthews was the latest target of the so-called Bernie Bros as they demanded MSNBC fire him for a comment he made about their dear leader, Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) win in the Nevada caucus. According to Matthews, Sanders’ blitzkrieg through the first three states, and his increased momentum, reminded him of the fall of France to the Nazis and the call the French prime minister made to the U.K. to say “it’s over.”



On Sunday's Reliable Sources, fill-in host John Avlon showed a clip of President Trump at a rally in Colorado mocking the awarding of Best Picture to the South Korean film Parasite. He uncorked a smug little 45-second commentary mocking Trump for touting Gone With the Wind, which is "profoundly racist by today's standards." Avlon also suggested the president is somehow like a "washed-up movie star who loses touch with reality."



Though the segment blew up on Twitter because The Atlantic’s David Frum described President Trump as so “physically capable” that he couldn’t “pick up a ball,” the arguably more ridiculous part of that Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources” segment was when fill-in host John Avlon led the panel in a mini-freak-out about memes. Together, they claimed memes were responsible for voter suppression and were all part of a Russia election interference scheme.



It's a sign of the Democrats' disarray. Poor Joy Reid has been reduced to begging the Bernie Bros not to attack one of her guests for the sin of pointing out that Sanders is a socialist! Earlier in her MSNBC show Sunday Reid said that Dems haven't hit Sanders with oppo research "because there's a blowback if you even say his name" in other than a positive way. Reid fretted that she would be getting "ethered" on twitter for mentioning Sanders.



The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! That is what most of the media want you to believe about the 2020 election. This explains the recent spate of reports about the Russians attempting to hack the results of the upcoming election just as they supposedly did with the 2016 election despite no solid proof.  And among those who saw no real proof of Russian influence on the 2016 election is someone who is among the ones most steeped in the electoral facts of that election, Nate Silver of 538. 



Apparently, some cases of Russian election interference were more important than others. The night before Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) runaway victory in the Nevada caucuses on Saturday, news broke that Russia was trying to help the staunch socialist and Soviet Union honeymooner to win the election. Despite that story being breaking news, the evening newscasts all three broadcast networks dedicated more time to similar claims of Russia backing President Trump’s reelection and his reaction.



Hollywood's 2004 movie on the 1980 Miracle On Ice Olympic hockey champs included President Jimmie Carter's downer "crisis of confidence" speech. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, associated the team with a much more uplifting spirit of American greatness in recognizing them Friday night in Las Vegas.



On Friday's PBS NewsHour, liberal commentator Mark Shields made a very odd historical comparison -- the 2020 Democrat presidential contenders were like American revolutionaries of 1776, fighting a president who is somehow like King George III, the tyrannical English monarch.



On Wednesday afternoon, CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin provided an unchallenged forum for a Mike Bloomberg supporter to peddle a misleading story about having a "child" who was killed with a gun, which was featured in a misleading Bloomberg campaign ad played during the Super Bowl. Although the ad implied that the shooting victim, George Kemp, was a "child" when he was killed, he was reportedly a 20-year-old gang member who allegedly helped provoke the altercation that led to his death.



People magazine dramatically downsized its political coverage as Donald Trump rose to power. But in this week's issue, the Historic Moment of a gay man winning a Democrat presidential caucus was just too dramatic for them to avoid. The puffery was epic for "The Mayor Making History."
