Saturday’s New York Times ran a full-page lead National section story claiming “Transgender People See Protections Slip Away.” The story by reporter Lola Fadulu is the latest overheated, un-journalistic genuflection to the aggressive side of the transgender movement, while conveniently conflates “gender identity” with post-surgery transgender people. In October 2018 the paper embarrassed itself with its panicky coverage of the Trump administration’s initial stand under the headline “At Rallies and Online, Transgender People Say They #WontBeErased.’ 



What was once anomalous bias by omission is now a familiar monthly ritual. The nation’s leading Spanish-language networks can’t seem to wrap their heads around the idea of having to report on the Trump administration’s jobs numbers within the Hispanic community, and if they do so, the report must end on some kind of sour note. The November report was no exception.



Charlize Theron has played it all, from post-apocalyptic warriors to Fast & Furious foes. Like most actors, Theron finds the humanity in her characters, no matter their sins. That proved daunting when she portrayed Aileen Wuornos, the woman who killed at least six men before dying via lethal injection in 2002. Theron won an Oscar for that performance, a role requiring her to dramatically alter her beautiful visage. It’s a safe bet she doesn’t regret bringing Wuornos’ story to life.



Two years ago this week, Democrat Al Franken resigned amidst multiple allegations of unwanted touching. Yet journalists lamented the “rush” to remove the liberal senator from such a “potentially storied career.” This chiding included NBC anchor Tom Brokaw, who would later himself be accused of sexual misconduct. On December 7, 2017, CBS’s Nancy Cordes lamented, “...it’s a big blow to the Democratic Party writ large. There are a lot of long faces around here today.” 



A recent article in the fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar featured British actress and model Jameela Jamil (now starring on NBC's The Good Place) interviewing/celebrating legendary feminist extremist Gloria Steinem. They discussed how abortions are a wonderful choice for women and pro-lifers are authoritarians, like Hitler. 



Washington Post "gender and society" columnist Monica Hesse is a lot like her colleague Robin Givhan, the fashion columnist. It doesn't matter what their supposed beats are. They coo over liberal women and brutalize the conservative women. Hillary is a gift to America. Melania is like "a garage-sale lampshade."



As our sister site CNS News pointed out, Friday morning’s jobs report was a smashing success for the American economy with “a whopping 266,000 jobs in November; and for the sixth month in a row, a record number of Americans were counted as employed.” The unemployment rate fell “to 3.5 percent, a 50-year low.” But when it came time for the Friday broadcast network evening newscasts, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News couldn’t be bothered with spending more than a short news brief (21 seconds each) on the story.



Late Show host Stephen Colbert joined the rest of the blatantly partisan media cheering on Nancy Pelosi for scolding Sinclair News reporter James Rosen about her Catholic faith, Thursday. After paying tribute to the Democrat with a weird sing-a-long, which demanded President Trump call Pelosi his “boss,” Colbert wasn’t done fawning over the House Speaker. A self-proclaimed Catholic, he cheered on his idol zinging Rosen, all the while mocking Catholicism.



Through Friday’s CBS Evening News, CBS News has refused to show on its morning or evening newscast 2020 Democratic Michael Bloomberg telling CBS This Morning co-host and Democratic friend Gayle King that Bloomberg News journalists need “to live with it” that they can’t investigate him or his primary opponents but can continue digging into President Trump.



Just two months after showering House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with praise for rebuking the “child President” Trump, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell devoted another opening monologue to praising the Speaker; this time for her exchange with James Rosen. The Last Word host devoted the first ten minutes of his show Thursday to reporting on how Pelosi “crushed” Rosen after he dared to suggest that she might “hate the President.”



New York Times impeachment testimony coverage on Thursday almost completely ignored the labored, pseudo-clever mean pun from law professor Pamela Karlan, who bizarrely named Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron to make some unrelated point. The controversy, which inflamed Republicans and even made some liberals cringe, was relegated to the last two paragraphs of the paper’s large front-page story.” The hidden bias was the partisan manner in which the main congressional players and witnesses were described by congressional reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Supreme Court reporter Adam Liptak.



MSNBC seems to operate under the belief that one should “never let a tragedy go unexploited.” After Friday morning’s shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, the hosts and guests on the cable network turned the discussion to gun laws and how the U.S. contrasts to regulations in Britain. Host Stephanie Ruhle highlighted the terror attack in London last week as a comparison.  



Everyone should find a person that looks at them the way Stephen Colbert looks at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. On Thursday’s Late Show, Colbert did everything short of throwing rose petals at Pelosi’s feet as he opened his show with a fawning video tribute to his idol.
 



On her 12:00 p.m. ET hour show on Friday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell assured viewers that she could personally “attest” to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “deep faith.” The host made the declaration while applauding the liberal leader’s denial that the impeachment push against President Trump was motivated by Democrats hating him.



One of the four constitutional scholars who testified at the impeachment hearings on Dec. 3 played an instrumental role in the building of Facebook’s Oversight Board. Noah Feldman, professor at Harvard Law School and director of the Julis-Rabinowitz Program on Jewish and Israeli Law, testified at the House Judiciary Committee’s public hearing.
