The idea promoted among the left that President Donald Trump is some sort of fascist is nothing new and the latest example of this comes from Vox co-founder Ezra Klein on May 28 in which he compares Trump to to fictional fascist president Charles Lindbergh in the late novelist Philip Roth's novel The Plot Against America:

 



Former CIA Director Michael Hayden appeared on ABC's This Week on Sunday. Hayden criticized President Donald Trump's behavior during the on-off-on North Korean negotiations, and claimed Trump is "trying to delegitimize the Mueller investigation, the FBI, (and) the Department of Justice." Host Martha Raddatz then asked about statements made in a new book and on TV this past week by former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who wants the public to believe that Russian influence swung the 2016 presidential election to Trump. If Raddatz expected Hayden to confirm Clapper's assessment — Why else would someone who couldn't hold back her tears on Election Night 2016 ask about it? — he forcefully disappointed her.



The national media love to preach about how everyone needs to offer more transparency -- to the media, since they always represent the public interest. That’s why it’s amusing to see them refuse to be transparent on a controversial matter like hiring minority journalists. The Left is not going to be happy if they report on themselves. They're going to be judged as too white, too male. 



There is a determined disinformation campaign by the establishment press contending — in the face of admitted evidence to the contrary — that Barack Obama's FBI didn't spy on Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2016. Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, appeared Thursday on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show to debunk that nonsense.



Chris Matthews, obviously frustrated by the utter lack of any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, tells an Adam Schiff staffer in private that he needs "something that leads to impeachment."



For those keeping score at home, this is the third post on Thursday’s Hardball, so that should tell you plenty about the straight jacket-worthy craziness that unfolded on MSNBC from start to finish. It began at the top with ringleader/host Chris Matthews setting a grim picture of the country’s future down to NBCNews.com’s Heidi Przybyla seeming to question the intelligence of those in flyover country for not understanding the ramifications of the Russia probe.



Put simply, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough has a very nasty habit. When someone disagrees with him, he often resorts to hammering that person as being either “too stupid” or “too incompetent” to be taken seriously. That pattern of behavior continued on Wednesday, when the former Republican stated that “you’re too stupid to handle household appliances” if you believe there was a conspiracy by the Justice Department, the FBI and the administration of former President Barack Obama to rig the 2016 presidential election.



It may be the season finale, but CBS’s Madam Secretary always has time to push the goal of seeing a Hillary Clinton presidency. After another season of liberal nonsense, we finally get an admission that the female Secretary of State indeed wants to be president. You know what they say: “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”



Univision senior news anchor Jorge Ramos and retiring Chicagoland Congressman Luis Gutiérrez once again teamed up for a master class in racial demagoguery and agenda-driven journalism. This time, in order to make hay out of President Trump’s “animals” remark regarding MS-13 gang members.



The New York Times has been heavily criticized for its blatantly anti-Israeli coverage of the deadly protest in Gaza, after the terrorist group Hamas urged Palestinian civilians to rush the fence guarding Israel’s border from attack. The disparity continued on Wednesday’s front page, “Israelis Reflect: ‘I Hope at Least That Each Bullet Was Justified.’” Reporters Isabel Kershner and David Halbfinger reported from a kibbutz close to the conflict, near the “open-air prison” that they call Gaza.



Over the past several years we‘ve chronicled Univision’s self-inflicted struggles, which for the most part are the result of poor forecasting, haphazard management and blind servitude to a political agenda. Now comes the most scathing indictment of Univision’s mismanagement to date, and most notably, it comes from within the company. The Gizmodo Media Group’s Special Projects Desk recently published what, perhaps, might be its Univision swan song, aptly titled “Univision Is A F***ing Mess” - and it’s a doozy.



Axios is yet another leftist website which promised "vital, trustworthy news and analysis" with "no bias" and "no nonsense" but has subsequently descended into parody. Saturday, Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei, two of the site's founders, posted "The Public Case Against Trump," allegedly a list of "known knowns" about "a damning tale that would sink most leaders." It's a colossal example of fake news.
