The crass, horribly annoying TBS host Samantha Bee was back at it Wednesday night, expressing dismay that Brett Kavanaugh remains on the Supreme Court while showering praise on the horribly biased and factually challenged New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly for supposedly unearthing claims from “highly credible” Kavanaugh accusers. Along the way, she threw in insults about Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) being both a “bitch” and a frog eating flies, but that’s rather mild compared to some of her past statements.



On Monday, PolitiFact editor Angie Drobnic Holan wrote an article expressing her frustration that Sen. Ted Cruz would dare to mock her website on Twitter as “a wholly-owned subsidary of the DNC.” She insisted PolitiFact is an "independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit newsroom that fact-checks Democrats and Republicans alike" that was "unaffected by agenda or biases." That's not what a look at the numbers on Ted Cruz vs. Elizabeth Warren show. 



An anonymous intelligence official has claimed that President Trump said something to someone during a phone call that the unnamed official found troubling. That is a summation of the flimsy reporting in The Washington Post that all three network morning shows seized on Thursday morning. With almost no facts to go on, reporters on NBC, ABC, and CBS breathlessly declared a “growing scandal” and “potential constitutional showdown” over the matter.



In recent weeks, “comedian” Samantha Bee has used her TBS program Full Frontal to advocate for left-wing policy proposals from gun control to student loan forgiveness. This week, she gave a lecture on climate change. Bee spent most of her monologue trashing the Koch brothers, whom she described as “two guys” who “managed to radically damage Planet Earth.”



Remember the first outbreak of PC years ago? Back then it was a distant, isolated phenomenon -- an exotic STD localized to college campuses. Reality, like a dose of penicillin, would take care of things. Normal people had fun changing “bald” to “follically challenged,” and “hookers” to “horizontal laborers.” Good times.



Note to lefty special interests: Pick on the Big Tech companies. They’re pushovers.  Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced at the National Press Club on September 19 that he was making massive changes to Amazon in order to fight climate change. More than 1,500 Amazon employees pledged to walk out on strike on September 20 as part of the Global Climate Strike along with other tech employees from Google and Microsoft.



Another prominent liberal leader has been engulfed in a racism and blackface scandal, this time Canada’s very progressive Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Although all the networks covered it, they made sure to frame the story as conservatives “pouncing” on the politician. CBS This Morning actually managed to ignore an ideological label for Trudeau. On NBC’s Today, Craig Melvin introduced the story this way: “While he has apologized overnight, his rivals have been quick to pounce.” 



It seems every week the media spends day after day obsessing over another anonymously-sourced report that makes claims no one can back up. Thursday, journalists were in a frenzy over a Washington Post report which alleged an anonymous “whistleblower” who formerly worked for an intelligence agency, claimed President Trump had promised something “troubling” to an unnamed foreign leader earlier this Summer. Frenzy over the story also hit the ladies at the View table, who worried that the Department of Justice was “covering up” the alleged scandal to protect Trump. Only co-host Meghan McCain had the nerve to point out the media hypocrisy on this topic.



New York Times national security correspondent David Sanger’s “news analysis” on the font page basically took Iran’s side in the fraught geopolitical confrontation over the recent attacks on oil fields in Saudi Arabia, against U.S. President Trump and his “tirades and untruths.” The online headline suggested Trump could be lying about the Iranian threat: “Trump’s Challenge: Can His Word on Iran Be Trusted?” Sanger used Trump’s exaggerations and fibs in his partisan speeches to suggest his word can’t be trusted on Iran (meanwhile, the Times has a history of whitewashing the mendacity of the Iranian regime).



Facebook admitted in court that it is a private publisher, not a free platform, proving its conservative critics correct. Conservative pundit Chadwick Moore tweeted an article by tech blog ReclaimTheNet, writing, “Facebook just admitted in a federal document that they are, indeed, a publisher, not a platform, and they are demanding First Amendment protections from Laura Loomer's defamation lawsuit.” The upshot: “This means, Mark Zuckerberg lied to Congress.”



Fossil fuel divestment is a waste of time. At least, according to liberal billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates.



On Tuesday's Cuomo Prime Time, liberal host Chris Cuomo got into a heated debate with conservative contributor Steve Cortes over the immigration issue. Cortes called out Cuomo, and presumably others on CNN, for their history of misleadingly conflating legal immigrants with illegal immigrants, leading Cuomo to falsely deny doing so. And the CNN host also snidely charged that Trump supporters "drag Kate Steinle's family" around the country as he hinted that they try to portray illegal immigrants as a danger to white Americans.



Self-described "conservative" Joe Scarborough frets that if President Trump and Mitch McConnell are successful, they will "shape the judiciary for the next 50 years." Scarborough expressed his concern in the context of criticizing Joe Kennedy for launching a Democrat primary campaign against incumbent Sen. Ed Markey in Massachusetts.  Scarborough worries that money spent on that campaign will divert funds that could be used to defeat President Trump.



With the NFL's quarterback injury toll mounting, the volume on media calls for Colin Kaepernick's return to the NFL has risen to a deafening roar this week. His apologists always call for NFL teams to sign him when a quarterback goes down with an injury, but they've really ratcheted up the anger and intensity in the past couple days. USA Today's Nancy Armour and ESPN First Take's Max Kellerman top the list of shrill media bludgeoning the NFL for declining to restore the anti-American Kaepernick's pro football career.



The same networks that banded together to bully pro-life states earlier this year after they passed sweeping legislation to protect the life of unborn children, spent Wednesday evening whining about President Trump threatening to revoke California’s self-prescribed emissions standards in favor of a national standard.
