It has long been known that liberals hold the television show "The West Wing" in a high esteem that feeds into their fantasies, especially in times where cold reality has not exactly gone as they (and creator Aaron Sorkin) would have hoped.  And this fantasy will only be intensified since this is the twentieth anniversary of the show's premiere. Another reason for liberals to fantasize ever more deeply in the parallel liberal world of "The West Wing" is obviously due to the the one they consider to be the intruder in the real world West Wing, President Donald Trump.

 

The September 20 Vanity Fair article by Sonya Saraiya, "How The West Wing Briefly Made Democrats Into TV Winners," reveals how liberals continue looking upon that show as a source of solace over the years and especially now in the midst of the Trumpocalypse.



Weighing in on the whistle-blower scandal that the media have treated as the apocalypse over the past few days, Real Time host Bill Maher noted that “impeachment is in the news.” While he acknowledged that “a lot of people were saying today, ‘oh, we’ve got him,’” a disheartened Maher said “I wouldn’t get my hopes up” that the whistle-blower scandal will bring President Trump down before begging his panel to convince him “that this is going to be different.”



The liberal bias and double standards doesn’t get any bolder than this.Here is the headline from The Daily Caller: “NBC News Reporter Calls Out Barr For Praising Book On Due Process In College Sexual Assault Cases.” The story begins this way: 



The New York Times’ Saturday edition brought an update to the world-wide “climate strike” by schoolchildren from the paper’s apocalyptic-sounding international climate reporter Somini Sengupta. It's a huge two-page story with photos from around the world: “Young People Around the World Take It to the Streets.” The text box: “Anxious about the future and doing something about it.” Doing something about it apparently means skipping class.Sengupta wrote the introductory text for an even more panicky story in Saturday’s edition, “‘This Is Our Terrifying World,” featuring photographic profiles of six young climate activists worldwide.



Media Research Center Director for Media Analysis Tim Graham appeared at The Paley Center on Tuesday and sparred with liberal CNN host Brian Stelter about media bias in the age of Trump. Graham shot down Stelter’s argument about “hate movements” on the right, saying of the need to hold journalists accountable:  “I want to say to Brian very seriously, I don't hate journalists. I don't want to be part of a hate movement. Okay? I minored in journalism, and that's but yes,  I have a site called NewsBusters. But journalism's important. Journalism's important enough that we need to hold it accountable.” 



The Washington Post is perennially sneering at conservatives, as you can see from this Friday story: "Greetings from Mike Pence’s parallel universe. It’s Constitution Day at the Heritage Foundation." Whose parallel universe? Post political writer Ben Terris expects that everyone lives in the world of liberal impressions that The Washington Post is creating.



There’s little daylight between the current Democrats running for the White House and Hollywood messaging. Consider the following topics: Justice Brett Kavanaugh? Impeach! The rich? Raise their taxes! Gun control? We need more! Trump? Impeach! (unless it hurts our chances in 2020)



CNN, the network that likes to brag about being all about “facts first,” doesn’t always have a great track record when it comes to reality. Fourteen years ago this week, on September 19, 2005, the network’s founder appeared on his own network to credulously insist that despotic dictator Kim Jong-il “didn't look" evil. Ted Turner proclaimed, “...He didn’t look too much different than most other people.”



College wrestling season is only weeks away, and on Friday ESPN intentionally withheld key information in its celebration of the sport's first transgender wrestler. Non-binary ESPN W writer Katie Barnes featured Mackenzie "Mack" Beggs, the girl who wanted to compete in boys' wrestling, but was forced against her will to win her last 92 matches and two state high school girls' championships in Texas. Beggs is now a member of the Life University men's wrestling team that will start its season in a few weeks, and Barnes is riding this story for all it's worth, skipping over some crucial facts.



In advance of the United Nations “Climate Action Summit” on September 23, leftists are actively practicing their faith. Man has despoiled the Earth, and now must…confess to the Earth? Confess your ecological sins to plants? Confess to NBC News? 



At the start of the week, The New York Times was caught in an embarrassing error as it tried to throw a new sexual-harassment allegation at Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh. PolitiFact did not assign any "Truth-o-Meter" punishments to the Times. Instead, since they are sympathetic liberal journalists, the site's John Kruzel critiqued the conservatives at PJ Media instead. The headline was "No, the New York Times has not admitted to peddling ‘fake news’ about most recent Kavanaugh claim."



If the mainstream media wants to find out why fewer and fewer people take them seriously, a September 18 article in the Washington Post would be towards the top of the piles of evidence. The very title of the story by Hannah Natanson reflects both the extreme shallowness along with the obvious bias to produce the incredibly cringeworthy "Frederick Douglass photos smashed stereotypes. Could Elizabeth Warren selfies do the same?"

 



It was a long Friday for the media covering the climate protests around the world and over the course of the day they have chosen to highlight some of their favorite activists. From the school skippers to the morbid suicide depictions, the media applauded every step of the way. On CNN Newsroom, two more activists were highlighted: one 17-year-old who traveled a great distance to the protest and another who wished her employer didn't exist.



With the liberal media's psuedo-religious devotion for gun control, it's no surprise that they greeted the PSA from the group Sandy Hook Promise with open arms. So on Friday, our friends Charles Fain Lehman and David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon published a study that found he video aired nine times in two days on NBC News and cable partner MSNBC.



What do ABC’s Tom Llamas (with colleagues Lucien Bruggeman, and Matthews Mosk), CNN’s John King, Michelle Malkin, The New Yorker’s Adam Entous, and James Risen all have in common? Apparently, CNN deemed those people to be conspiracy theorists on Friday since they’ve raised questions about Joe Biden’s interactions with the Ukranian government while son Hunter Biden was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
