Shortly after the Nunes memo's Friday release, five reporters — three at the Associated Press and one each at MSNBC and CNN, pushed the long-discredited claim that, in the AP's words, "(Christopher) Steele’s opposition research effort was initially funded by the conservative Washington Free Beacon."


CW's comedy Jane the Virgin has gone through its ups and downs. In the early seasons, it wasn't terribly political. Then it became political (and terrible) as soon as Trump was elected, but it actually chilled out a little this year. So why, in the February 2 episode "Chapter Seventy-Three," did they feel the need to take a random dig at Ivanka Trump? 


The days before the release of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act memo alleging a pattern of malfeasance by the FBI and Justice Department in its surveillance of members of the Trump campaign were marked by dread and hysteria in the media, and the New York Times participated. 


In the February 1 episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Dr. Miranda Bailey goes into a competing hospital, convinced she is having a heart attack. This episode is heavy with flashbacks as past memories are triggered by this experience.


The 2016 election still isn’t over for the liberals in the media, who keep trying to find ways to prove that President Trump “obstructed justice” and should be impeached, just past a year into his presidency. Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor and former President Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos eagerly hoped they had finally found the evidence needed to oust Trump.


Season Two of Netflix’s One Day at a Time began airing January 26 with 13 half-hour episodes. Picking up where last season left off, the show is all about immigration, gun control, and teenage political activism sprinkled with Trump bashing.


What if they conducted a Special Counsel investigation and all you got was a lousy T-shirt? That pretty much sums up the opinion of legal expert Paul Rosenzweig in The Atlantic magazine on January 30. In an opinion piece sure to depress many liberals as well as much of the mainstream media, Rosenzweig confirms what seems to be common sense to the layman: it is silly to have an obstruction of justice charge when there is no underlying crime.

 


On Sunday, NPR host Michel Martin interviewed Maroon 5 keyboardist P.J. Morton on his solo record and a song that “caught my ear” called “Religion.” The lyrics included: “I don't think I like your religion. Don't always make the best decisions. Not saying you don't have good intentions. I know that you are only human.” Of course, this song was about evangelicals and Donald Trump, and somehow, Trump and his fans were comparable to religious backers of slavery.


In an interview with Hoda Kotb for Monday’s NBC Today, liberal talk show host and prominent Hillary Clinton booster Ellen DeGeneres laughably claimed “I’m not like a political person in any way.” Rather than challenge that absurd declaration, Kotb simply fawned: “Despite her stand against having President Trump on her show, Ellen doesn’t shy away from using her platform to comment on his policies.”


During a testy exchange on CNN’s New Day Monday morning, anchor Chris Cuomo accused White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah of “sounding like the Clinton folks” when it came to his criticism of the FBI.  Cuomo apparently forgets that just a year and a half earlier, he himself sounded a lot like the “Clinton folks”, as he repeated the Democratic Presidential candidate’s talking points surrounding the Clinton e-mail investigation throughout the 2016 Presidential Election season.  


Fox’s The X-Files has been working overtime on their anti-Trump agenda this season, but they’ve truly outdone themselves with this latest episode. In a fictional world full of conspiracy theories - even parallel universes - where people seem to reject objective truth, one thing never changes: Donald Trump must be mocked at all costs.


On Friday, the College of William & Mary announced that former FBI Director James Comey, a 1982 graduate, will "will teach a three-credit course on ethical leadership" beginning this fall. Establishment press coverage of Comey's assignment, coinciding with being named "an executive professor in education," has mostly avoided the myriad reasons why having him teach such a course is a horrible lapse in judgment by W&M.
