CNN's double standard in their treatment of Republicans versus Democrats is on continuous display. On Wednesday's New Day, conservative Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was grilled by co-host Chris Cuomo. Yet, when fellow co-host Alisyn Camerota interviewed liberal Sen. Sherrod Brown immediately following the King interview, the Senator was given non-challenging softball questions.


It’s an oft-repeated point: as the nuclear family and religious instruction wane in prominence in mainstream America, people’s needs for a higher purpose inevitably attaches itself to some other, often political, force. It’s why everywhere you look, from Cosmopolitan to Teen Vogue, publications that used to have a primary focus on niche topics like fashion and clothing trends are now unable to “stay in their lane” and are overrun with overt leftism, the new uniting social cause upon which many millennials attach their wayward search for meaning.
 


Just before noon, the Associated Press ended almost 18 hours of silence on the arrest of IT staffer Imran Awan yesterday as he was attempting to leave the country. The report spun the news in the most favorable way it could for beleaguered Democrats, making Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz look like the victim as it headlined her spokesman's claim that she fired Awan Tuesday after learning of his arrest.


ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued on Wednesday morning the liberal media’s attempts to help Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fl.) cover up the scandal involving now-fired I.T. staffer Imran Awan after his arrested Monday when he tried to flee the country.


MSNBC’s boosters in the liberal media have a way of exaggerating their ratings victories. On Monday, The Huffington Post gushed in a headline “MSNBC Makes Network History With Stretch Of No. 1 Cable Ratings: The channel enjoyed a week as the winner.” But a look at the full calendar week shows Fox News won the ratings race for the full calendar week, both in prime-time and total-day measurements. 


The Boston Globe tried to be clever this morning by tweeting a snarky comment about Mitt Romney taking vacation while the GOP’s health care bill was being debated. But Twitter users weren’t impressed by the pointless and completely inappropriate slam of the former Republican presidential candidate, who's no longer in political office. Users responded by mocking the Globe instead.


The media sported their real colors again as Cardinal George Pell was summoned to court in Melbourne, Australia, without knowing what the charges are or who the accusers are. But The New York Times fulminated anyway about how this will "test the credibility" of Pope Francis in dealing with sex-abuse allegations against the Catholic Church. To say that the pope's credibility is on the line is to suggest that he should act now to discipline a man who is presumed innocent. The contempt for civil liberties could not be more clear.


Liberals are not above kicking people when they are down, especially if it’s a Republican politician. Even Senator John McCain, recently diagnosed with glioblastoma, is no exception to the rule. The outpouring of sympathy for John McCain turned sour yesterday when the senator cast the deciding vote to allow debate for repealing the Affordable Care Act. Liberal journalists who had formerly tweeted out their sympathy for McCain retracted their well wishes very quickly. HuffPost contributor Peter Dreier went all out, writing in an article that McCain will have a different legacy than that of Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy, who passed away in 2009.

 


While describing how John McCain returned to the Senate with a “hero’s homecoming” following his cancer diagnosis, on Wednesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Hallie Jackson also seized on nasty online attacks against the Arizona Republican by left-wing activists upset that he voted to open up ObamaCare repeal legislation to debate in Congress.


Before even the first commercial could be aired on Wednesday's New Day, CNN managed to claim that repealing ObamaCare was wrong, the GOP had "rigged" the Senate process, and even suggested that McCain was a hypocrite for voting to open debate on health care.


CBS hosts Stephen Colbert and Charlie Rose are disgusted with the “moral heresy” delivered by Donald Trump when he spoke to the Boy Scouts on Monday. Rose appeared on Tuesday’s Late Show and the first thing he wanted to talk about was the speech: “Boy, that interview with the Boy Scouts keeps on giving, doesn't it?” 


The liberal media’s message to Donald Trump is clear. Don’t even dare think about removing Robert Mueller from his position as Special Prosecutor. Such a decision would be considered a “radical” and “dangerous” move against a man “even Republicans” have a deep respect for.  However, this was hardly the stance the liberal media took when Ken Starr was first appointed to look into Bill Clinton’s Whitewater scandal in the nineties. Back then, Starr was accused of “McCarthyism” and conducting a “Salem witch trial” into a “parody of a political scandal.” The following is a collection, culled from the MRC’s archives, of liberal journalists running interference for then President Bill Clinton as they depicted Starr as an out of control prosecutor.


The July 25 episode of The Bold Type “If You Can’t Do It with Feeling,” ran with the idea of the Trump era creating a culture of fear and hate, and used that false fear to excuse violence by the left.


It's no secret that the establishment press's pro-abortion posture is so strong and pervasive that one wonders if supporting it is a job prerequisite. One clear manifestation of that is how journalists treat attempts to regulate conduct and disclosure at abortion clinics with outraged hysteria, while ignoring attempts to silence and marginalize pro-life groups attempting to show pregnant women that there is an alternative to eliminating the unborn lives they are carrying. The Associated Press is especially experienced in engaging in this double standard.


If there's anyone left in America who still thinks the national newspapers aren’t partisan, he must have missed the front page of USA Today on July 24. The banner headline across the top read “USA split on Trump impeachment.” They took a poll attempting to figure out very publicly if the voters want Trump impeached yet.

The story proclaimed a dark omen in the results, which is why the newspaper asked the poll question. “Just six months after his inauguration, Americans already are split down the middle, 42%-42%, over whether President Trump should be removed from office, a new USA Today/iMediaEthics Poll finds.”
