The New York Times sank into an ugly ethnic and religious controversy in its Sunday Styles front-page story on American Jewish reaction to the politically poweful couple of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, a take that many found offensive: “But Are They Good for the Jews?” That question is a traditional one in the Jewish community, if not a cliché, but underlined the offensiveness of the article, which pondered if this Jewish couple should be anathema to the larger Jewish community.



On CNN's "State of the Union," host Jake Tapper three times presses losing Dem Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as to whether she acknowledges that her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, will be the "legitimate"  governor. Abrams refuses to do so, conceding only that Kemp "received an adequate number of votes" and hence would be the "legal" governor.



Beauty is only skin deep. And to the Democratic Party and the liberal media, that appears to be as deep as they go for selecting their candidates. That much was demonstrated during Sunday’s This Week on ABC when fill-in host Martha Raddatz, who is supposed to be an objective journalist, flashed her partisan side by bragging to former New Jersey governor Chris Christie about how diverse the income class of newly elected Democrats was.



The “first wave” of the long caravan of Central American migrants first arrived at the U.S./Mexico border on Wednesday and as CBS Evening News reported that evening, they were “straining the resources” Tijuana. It wasn’t until Sunday’s Good Morning America that ABC acknowledged the caravan’s arrival. And in doing so, they downplayed the pressure it was putting on the city and its overall effect, while whining about it having too much influence during the 2018 midterm elections.



As we demonstrated in our column this week, the networks have next to zero interest in even mentioning Louis Farrakhan, even as he calls Jewish people "termites" and led chants of "Death to America" recently on a trip to Iran. If Farrakhan fervently backed Trump, like an Islamic version of Kanye West, it's easy to imagine that would be different. But here's just how little the networks have done in the last 12 months, according to a Nexis search.



During Friday’s edition of Real Time With Bill Maher, the eponymous host sat down with Garry Kasparov, co-author of a new book called Fight For Liberty: Defending Democracy in the Age of Trump. Kasparov asserted that President Trump’s re-election would signal the “demise of democracy.”  Maher agreed, predicting that Trump is “not going to leave even if he loses the election,” kind of an ironic point to make as Democrats across the country refuse to concede in a series of elections where they have no path to victory.



On Friday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon hosted a panel discussion of why most white women voted for Donald Trump that was stacked three to one against conservatives. Liberal contributor Kirsten Powers argued that such women must be "racist" because they voted for Trump, while UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers argued that women have long benefited from "white supremacy" even while being "oppressed" by white men.



The House Ethics Committee reprimanded Democrat Rep. Ruben Kihuen, accused of sexual harassment, and Republican Rep. Mark Meadows for his handling of sexual harassment by an aide.   The resulting coverage from the New York Times and CNN was a classic example of the double standards the media applies to Democratic and Republican scandals.



On Friday's PBS NewsHour, we were "treated" to "bipartisan" agreement among the pundits that the Ocasio-Cortez Class of Democrats is a centrist, or non-ideological bunch. The headline was "David Brooks and Ruth Marcus on a ‘moderate’ new congressional class." Pseudo-conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks and liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus were energetically agreed in NewsHour style that these were moderate Democrats who would do well to vote for Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They "need" her discipline in tacking to the....center. 



Before journalists were fantasizing about having sex with Barack Obama, they were musing about sex with another Democrat, Bill Clinton. On November 16, 1992, Time Senior Writer Walter Shapiro cheered that “for the first time in more than 30 years the nation has elected a President with sex appeal.” 



The New York Times is accepting, even supportive, of liberal Democrats who protest the disappointing results of free and fair elections. Democratic Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams' classless attempts to poison the well after her close defeat at the hands of Republican Brian Kemp were greeted with consolation on the front page of the New York Times. The paper also supported attempts by liberals to overturn Donald Trump’s victory in 2016. But after Trump hypothetically raised the possibility pre-election of not respecting the results, there were accusations of dictatorship.



It’s very easy for media elites in Manhattan to decide that one tweet can prove that small towns in Wisconsin are stuffed with racists and anti-Semites. On November 12, ABC, CBS, and NBC all leaped on a tweet from the left-wing talk show “The Young Turks.” It showed a months-old high-school prom photo from Baraboo, Wisconsin, where a collection of teenaged boys on the front steps of the Sauk County courthouse appeared to be giving a “Nazi salute.” But it wasn't. It was....fake news.



Jemele Hill said it before and she's saying it again: President Donald Trump is still a "white supremacist." Hill got into hot water when, as an employee of ESPN in the fall of 2017, she tweeted that insult. On Thursday's Late Show with Stephen Colbert, she told the host she's standing by the accusation.



As the Central American caravans continue to roll through Mexico towards the U.S., some Univision hosts are acting like cheerleaders, including evening news anchor Jorge Ramos and morning show host Alan Tacher.



If you’ve watched The History Channel, you know that “ancient aliens” probably built the Pyramids and Stonehenge and maybe the Hanging Gardens of Babylon (and why wouldn’t little green men have little green thumbs?)
