With the stroke of a pen, President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that would officially end the policy of separating parents and children who come across the southern border illegally. It’s what many on the right and left wanted to see happen, but for the liberal media it wasn’t enough, as CBS anchor Jeff Glor demonstrated by opining about how Trump was trying to “put out a big political fire with a few drops of ink.”
A gem of a comeback on a prime time drama. After a character contended “the world is no longer as simple as us and them” and “if we don’t evolve beyond us-and-them logic, then we will go extinct,” another character retorted by wondering: “Did you take a New York Times suppository this morning because I can’t imagine how else anybody can internalize so many bullshit liberal talking points.”

Taking children from their parents is wrong – whether they’re born or unborn. But many in Hollywood and the media are accusing pro-lifers of only focusing on the unborn while, at the same time, they only focus on the born.

The New York Times saw Red-state racism everywhere it looked, in Tuesday’s “Attacking Immigrants, Trump Keeps His Base Fired Up for the Midterms.” Reporters Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman went beyond the current border controversies to lump in the national anthem as a racist issue: "Mr. Trump’s broadsides against Hispanic migrants, like his criticism of black athletes who will not stand for the national anthem, may resonate in the deeply red states where the battle for control of the Senate is playing out."
Appearing on Wednesday’s Megyn Kelly Today, NBC anchor Savannah Guhtrie assured her colleague that she was “trying to stay as fair-minded and neutral” as possible in her coverage of the Trump administration’s immigration policy.

On Wednesday’s edition of New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota interviewed Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) about the current illegal immigration crisis.

ABC and NBC on Tuesday and Wednesday buried the unraveling story of Peter Strzok and his tainted connection to both the Russia investigation and Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal.
