Well, it may have taken a while, but CNN host Brian Stelter finally admitted that praising lawyer Michael Avenatti (A.K.A creepy porn lawyer) as a “serious” contender for 2020 wasn’t a smart move. The admission came during the latest Reliable Sources as he was speaking with writers form the left-wing Daily Beast, Lachlan Markey and Asawin Suebsaeng about their new book about how the DC swamp infested President Trump’s administration.

The front of Sunday’s New York Times featured yet another climate lecture from Australia bureau chief Damien Cave. The alarmism was labeled a “Reporter’s Notebook,” but was not so much reporting as pleading with his unfortunate subjects to radically reorganize their lives in the name of “climate change.” The online headline deck: “The End of Australia as We Know It -- What many of us have witnessed this fire season feels alive and monstrous. With climate change forcing a relaxed country to stumble toward new ways of work, leisure and life, will politics follow?”
On Saturday evening, MSNBC Live host Richard Lui presided over an all-liberal panel discussion of reports that ICE will be sending special agents into sanctuary cities to arrest illegal aliens that are taking refuge there.

On Friday, the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” was convicted of trying to extort shoemaker Nike for $25 million dollars. Despite their intertwined history, NBC Nightly News kept Avenatti at an arm’s length.
In a possible attempt to give flailing Democrats some positive spin after a couple of difficult weeks, NBC political director and Meet the Press moderator, Chuck Todd appeared on Sunday Today to insist President Trump was “sabotaging” his own reelection efforts. On top of that, Todd argued that the President was quaking in his boots by the idea he could be competing against former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Where does MSNBC find these so-called "Republicans?" A guest on Al Sharpton's show tonight was Rina Shah, whom Sharpton introduced as a "Republican strategist." In the course of her appearance, Shah said that President Trump "tends to speak out of his rear end." She later said that Trump is "racist to his core."
In recent months, liberal media outlets have enjoyed Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace criticizing President Trump and his team over impeachment.

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos's interview with Vice President Joe Biden, broadcast on Facebook Watch ahead of the Nevada caucuses, was neither lengthy nor wide-ranging. However, the interview demonstrated that border enforcement of any kind is a non-starter with Univision’s senior anchor.

This is exactly how the Leftist State Media (the LSM) plays the game of omission journalism. Here is a CNN.com story that is headlined as follows: “Stone juror says she 'stands with' the prosecutors.” The story reads, in part, this way: "A juror on the Roger Stone trial said she wants to 'stand up' for the four prosecutors who withdrew from the case in response to their sentencing recommendation being changed by Department of Justice leadership."
In the last week, journalists have erupted, feuded and generally freaked out over the acquittal of Donald Trump and the implosion of the Democratic Party.

Maher began: "Let me ask everybody about this race and Michael Bloomberg. First of all, he was insulting Trump the other day." Couric's eyes widen and she grinned that toothy grin and said "Oh my God, it was so amazing, wasn't it?"
Quick question: name the outlet that wrote the following about Sunday’s Oscars telecast: "What I did mind was a sinking feeling that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, for all its inclusiveness, had wound up excluding more viewers than ever. Couldn’t they have promoted that dual appearance by Steve Martin and Chris Rock? Bang that drum just a little, and another 3 million viewers might have watched. Shouldn’t they have done just a little bit more of what Renée Zellweger attempted when she said something nice about those in the Armed Forces, or Bong when he devotedly quoted Martin Scorsese?"
Unquestionably one of the hottest controversies raging in American sports and the culture war in general is the battle over transgender males unfairly invading female sports. Predictably, left-stream media are blind to the ethical fallacy of boys mopping up in girls' competition, and the issue is heating up in the nation's courts, too.
