Who better than Barney Frank to lecture on civility? MSNBC on Friday turned to the man who mocked gay Republicans as being like “secret Jews” to talk about the problem of tone in Washington. The former Democratic Congressman appeared to tout his op-ed in Time magazine. MSNBC Live guest host Morgan Radford offered this softball: “I also want to talk, not just about the issues, but tone. Because that's a lot of what you're describing in this op-ed. What would it take to bring civility back?” 



CNN seems intent on destroying any credibility they have left with the public. With three of its personalities, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and April Ryan all facing scandals for their behavior off-camera, and the network firing two of its few remaining conservative commentators, network execs thought it was the perfect time to add a disgraced leftist government official on as contributor.



First, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow took a turn smearing Trump judicial pick Steven Menashi as some kind of white nationalist. Now CNN's Andrew "KFILE" Kaczynski and Em Steck are digging into Menashi's college-newspaper articles at Dartmouth to denounce him as -- gasp! -- a conservative!



Thursday’s Hardball began with a now-tiresome and CNN-like consistency for painting an apocalyptic picture of America under President Donald Trump, trying to leave its audience cowering in fear. Throw in a dictator comparison, a helping of willing panelists, and questions about President’s mental health and you have yourself a par-for-the-course case study in cable news gaslighting.



The Facebook conservative audit conducted by former Republican senator Jon Kyl did very little to address concerns of censorship. The social media company only changed half a policy in response to the audit. Now Kyl is defending his work against criticism from the right.



On Thursday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi excitedly touted the new $16 trillion climate change plan put out by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and excused the massive price tag by lecturing viewers that “there’s a price to not doing anything or to doing too little.” He then brought on left-wing activists to further justify the extreme policy proposal.



How extreme are the members of the so-called Democratic “squad?” Extreme enough that even Bill Maher finds Congresswoman Rashida Talib extreme. On Wednesday, he actually posted a defense of our staunch Middle East ally after Tlaib not only slammed that nation, but also called for a boycott of Maher’s long-running program. While calling the Minnesota Democrat “childlike” in her behavior, the comedian tweeted:



Well you don’t see this happen very often. The Washington Post hammered CNN Thursday, for shamelessly ignoring an ugly story involving their political analyst, April Ryan. After her bodyguard was charged with assaulting a journalist, whom Ryan ejected from an event she was speaking at, even her liberal peers had enough. Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple bluntly demanded Ryan, address the hypocrisy, “or relinquish your standing as First Amendment champions.”



The liberal media were irate Thursday and became the physical embodiment of the internet’s so-called “cancel culture” in the wake of news that former Trump press secretaries Sarah Sanders and Sean Spicer got new jobs on TV. During that night’s edition of the unfunny “Ridiculist” on AC360, CNN host Anderson Cooper bitterly lashed out at the two, declaring: “Tonight, let there be no doubt that big, shiny, elegant, gold-plated opportunities, gorgeous opportunities await those who deceive the country on behalf of President Trump.”



On Wednesday's CBS Evening News, in a report informing viewers of efforts by the Donald Trump administration to detain illegal immigrant families for longer than 20 days to avoid having to release them into the country, both anchor Norah O'Donnell and correspondent Chip Reid failed to inform viewers that those immigrants affected would be those who had broken the law in crossing the border. Choices of words like "crackdown on immigration," "migrant families," and "families with children" were used without giving any indication that those families had broken the law by crossing the border without permission instead of traveling to legal ports of entry.



Not surprisingly, the far-left panel on Wednesday’s Deadline: White House did not react favorably to the Trump administration’s proposal to detain migrant families seeking asylum for longer than 20 days. Fill-in host John Heilemann suggested that President Trump wants to hold migrant children and their families “in detention centers indefinitely,” an idea which he argued “fit the textbook definition of what a concentration camp is.”



USA Today resident progressive sports writer Christine Brennan is demanding that our 2020 Olympic athletes delay a visit to the White House until after the presidential election. President Donald Trump's tweetstorms and manipulative behavior would simply be "a terrible distraction" for U.S. Olympic competitors, she predicts. And besides, Brennan writes, the athletes should not be used as pawns in Trump's "cutthroat Washington chess matches."



With former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer set to cut a rug on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, cue the Trump Derangement Syndrome from the liberal media. CNN media janitor Brian Stelter perfectly encapsulated the media’s over the top reaction during a Thursday afternoon appearance on Right Now with Brianna Keilar, where he called for “outrage and backlash” to the story.



You pro-lifers say you care about the lives of unborn babies. You may even believe that’s what you care about. But you’re not fooling Guardian writer Jill Filipovic. She knows what you really care about is oppressing women. That’s your “goal.” The only appropriate response required is, “Jill, you’re a malicious idiot.” But let’s look at her assertions anyway. Like all her friends, Flipovic is convinced that pro-life activism is actually a twisted facade to cover up the fact that it’s actually about “misogyny.”



CBS This Morning on Thursday promoted the New York Times attempt to blame everything wrong in American on slavery. Talking to Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, co-host Gayle King praised the effort: “The thing that’s so amazing about this that makes me so proud, you can look at just about anything happening in the world today and tie it to slavery.”
