As we’ve seen with CNN’s huffy, virtue-signaling “apple” ad campaign, the media never gets more defensive than when they are called out by the right for their liberal bias. That was apparent on ABC this morning, as the anchors reacted angrily to one conservative commentator’s comments made at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. Thursday.

 

Continuing the Trump-era trend of hiring anti-Trump comedians, the White House Correspondents’ Association announced Thursday that Daily Show comedian Michelle Wolf would headline this year’s annual dinner, on April 28 at the Washington Hilton.

 

Many people failed the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida before Nikolas Cruz's massacre last week. Someone also failed them during the attack: armed Resource Officer Scot Peterson, who, according to Broward County's sheriff, "never went in" to try to stop Cruz, instead remaining outside "upwards of four minutes." In a Thursday afternoon tweet, a Los Angeles Times editor expressed "some sympathy" — for Peterson. She later doubled down, dragging in the NRA while excusing cowardice.


On Thursday’s edition of HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp and her panel continued their multipart deep dive conversation to try and get to a solution for gun crime and mass shootings. The day’s conversation entailed the role of the media and whether or not they were helping the situation. Included on the panel was CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter and while he was defending media advocacy and their “humility” he was embarrassingly schooled for it.


On Thursday at CPAC, conservative podcast host and Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro lit up the Potomac Ballroom with remarks attacking political correctness on college campuses, in Hollywood, and the liberal media. Shapiro saved his strongest criticism for the liberal media as he declared that they’re not only “lying” about conservatives, but these “vile human beings” “are intentionally dividing the country in order to promulgate a gun-control agenda” and smear anyone standing in their way.


During his radio program on Thursday afternoon, February 22, conservative icon Rush Limbaugh hammered the “so-called Town Hall” that aired the previous night on the Cable News Network as a “disgrace” and the result of “a lifetime of propagandizing and indoctrination in the schools.”


On Thursday’s Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens eschewed the obligatory disclaimer that has been used by gun control advocates for decades – the claim that they’re not ‘coming for anybody’s guns.’


“Who doesn’t use notecards?” MRC President Brent Bozell said in an interview with Fox News’s Trish Regan, who was filling in on Your World With Neil Cavuto. “We all have used notecards. Every president has used a notecard. Barack Obama spent eight years using teleprompters.”


In the wee hours of Thursday morning, CNN began taking heat for supposedly scripting much of their train wreck a gun control town hall from just hours earlier. Colton Haab, a Parkland shooting survivor who protected his fellow students, told a local ABC affiliate that CNN would not allow him to ask the questions he had prepared and wanted him to read theirs.


When Golden State Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr starts spewing his left-wing views on political issues, he's always got the support of Deadspin's Deputy Editor Barry Petchesky. Today Petchesky writes in agreement with Kerr's support of youth marching for gun control in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.


NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Addressing a boisterous and energized crowd on Thursday morning at CPAC, Vice President Mike Pence revisited the Trump administration’s successes in 2018 and addressed head-on the liberal media’s love affair during the Winter Olympics with the murderous North Korea’s Kim Yo-jong, a member of the regime’s “evil family clique.”


During Thursday's edition of CNN's Wolf, panelist Nia-Malika Henderson slammed NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch's statement at CPAC alleging that "legacy media" enjoy mass shootings and referred to members of the NRA as "conspiracy theorists” for believing that the Democrats want to take their guns away. 


While she used to shy away from the word, one big name star is now embracing the term “feminism.” On Sunday, Matter of Fact With Soledad O'Brien aired an interview with actress Charlize Theron and Kweku Mandela, the grandson of Nelson Mandela. While speaking, Theron addressed equal pay and insisted that she was a “fucking feminist.”


If the media are going to cover teenagers’ opinions on guns, they should also listen to them on abortion, according to two Fox News hosts. Fox hosts Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson recently slammed the liberal media for their “double-standard” in coverage on American youth. During their shows February 20 and 21, they criticized journalists for voicing teenagers who support gun control, while ignoring youth who back abortion restrictions.

 

Appearing at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday, Ted Cruz struck back at liberal CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and his fake news accusation that the senator is afraid to come on his network. CPAC moderator Ben Domenech joked, “I am not on Twitter right now, but I do wonder if the five minutes since we have started, Chris has tweeted whether you are afraid to come on his program to talk about [guns].”
