It looks like the millions liberal billionaire George Soros’s Democracy PAC dumped into lefty group Priorities USA’s coffers are paying dividends. An Advertising Analytics March 21-March 27 “The Week in Review” report found that, out of ten coronavirus ads aired on TV last week, Priorities USA’s anti-Trump coronavirus ad “Hoax” led the pack with a whopping “1,074 airings.” Advertising Analytics noted that “The top advertiser for the week was Priorities USA.”



On Saturday, NBC’s Today show took time to share one of the top media concerns in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic – that the crisis has hampered likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s ability to campaign. Meanwhile, the network broadcast fretted that daily White House briefings about the virus had provided President Trump with a “substitute for campaign rallies.”



Basking in another contentious White House press briefing, PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor on Sunday night told MSNBC’s Ali Velshi that covering Donald Trump is a “team sport” for the press and that journalists must “have each other’s back” in opposition to the President. Much of the interview was spent lamenting that Alcindor only initially got one question out before a CNN journalist used his question to allow her to ask another. Speaking of Jeremy Diamond, she described the team dynamic as journalists vs. Trump:



Towards the end of Monday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl got the opportunity to plug his new tell-all book about covering President Trump to co-anchor George Stephanopoulos. Though the interview was very short, the two journalists managed to fit in as much Trump-bashing as they could. Karl bemoaned to Stephanopoulos that the president was the same man now as he was in 2016, and his “mental illness” was being spun as a good leadership quality, by his own staff.



It's vintage Deadspin red meat: Carron J. Phillips tearing into President Donald Trump over the coronavirus and his alleged racism. This president did not follow the wisdom of his predecessor, Barack Obama, and now we're all doomed. The impeachment farce failed, but Trump still needs to be removed from office, Phillips writes.



On Morning Joe, David Ignatius manages to pull off an MSM two-fer: using the coronavirus not only to swipe at President Trump, but to go back in history and jab another Republican president, George W. Bush, for his handling of 9/11. On today's Morning Joe, Ignatius of the Washington Post indulged in a classic bit of blaming-not-blaming. He first acknowledged that George W. "didn't cause 9/11."



On the last Sunday in March a year ago, The Washington Post Magazine published a goopy cover story titled "Pelosi's Moment. On the last Sunday in March this year, The Post published an "Opinion Essay" in the A section that went on for three pages (with eight photographs) celebrating Pelosi as "A troublemaker with a gavel." Karen Tumulty wrote what sounded like a very long Hallmark Greetings card for Pelosi's 80th birthday.



On Sunday's AM Joy show, MSNBC host Joy Reid gave frequent guest Frank Schaeffer a forum to rant against conservative Christians for supporting President Donald Trump during the pandemic. The longtime liberal activist who often bashes the Christian right slammed President Trump as a "moronic monster" and a "pro-death" President. He also went on to declare that conservative Christians are "in love with the gospel of hatred" because they did not stop supporting the NRA in the aftermath of church shootings.



The White House Coronavirus Task Force was back Sunday with a briefing and President Trump tussled with multiple reporters, most notably another throwdown with PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor. Alcindor asked about his comments to Sean Hannity about New York’s ventilator requests, but the President wasn’t having it. Instead, he told her to “be nice,” “don’t be threatening,” and reminded her that, despite how some in the liberal media behave, “we’re all on the same team” in hoping to defeat the virus.



Whether motivated by ratings or by some political agenda, liberal TV news networks on Sunday acted as though the coronavirus numbers released by the Communist Party of China were trustworthy enough to report on American national television. Throughout Sunday morning and into the afternoon, journalists on both cable and broadcast networks proclaimed that the number of confirmed cases in the United States had surpassed those in both China and Italy, even though that claim relies on dubious figures reported by the Chinese government.



The front page of Sunday’s New York Times used the coronavirus crisis to hypocritically accuse the right of spreading life-threatening disinformation about White House coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci: “Chief Scientist Draws Venom From the Right.” Reporters Davey Alba and Sheera Frenkel actually performed an analytical study of a sparsely populated universe of tweets to conjure up a supposedly newsworthy story. Oddly enough, the Times itself has questioned the credibility of coronavirus expert Dr. Deborah Birx, after she dared to express guarded optimism about the virus. To suggest Birx is a Trump stooge is newsworthy, but to call Fauci a Hillary Clinton stooge demands a front-page Times investigation.



When a crisis hits and a massive legislative package is organized to meet it, it's never surprising when Democrats go to supporting their own media assets. So there on page 746 of the 854-page "stimulus" bill is a provision granting $75 million to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting “to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, including for fiscal stabilization grants to public telecommunications entities."



New York Times fact-checker Linda Qiu targeted President Trump’s coronavirus response, with statistical sleight of hand, and managed to criticize Trump both for what he does and for not doing it quickly enough: “Analyzing the Patterns in Trump’s Falsehoods About Coronavirus.” After the paper criticizing Trump for the restrictions, Qiu then criticized him for skepticism of those restrictions. Meanwhile, the paper has almost ignored gross failures in their own besieged backyard: The dithering response by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.



On Sunday’s Meet The Press, moderator and NBC News political director Chuck Todd conducted a sympathetic interview with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Almost all of Todd’s questions were open-ended invitations for Biden to speculate about how he'd have handled the coronavirus pandemic better than the President, and at one point the NBC host even asked whether Trump had “blood on his hands.”



On her MSNBC show, Joy Reid warns that President Trump might use the coronavirus crisis as a "guise" to "reign as a monarch." She also mocks the President as "Apprentice Guy."
