Lawrence O’Donnell on Monday accused congressional Republicans of nothing more than political theater in their responses to the FBI text scandal. He treated the texts as a sideshow, and he attempted to present Republicans as hypocrites by comparing their criticisms of the FBI at a congressional hearing to their own criticisms of Donald Trump.



Appearing as a guest on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, liberal Republican CNN contributor Margaret Hoover advocated voting for Democratic candidates against pro-Donald Trump Republicans, and proclaimed that Democrats "deserve" to "have a heyday in November."



Democrats love protecting children and invoking a higher power, but only when it benefits them politically. On All In with Chris Hayes Thursday, former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer cited religion, sin, and children to blast the Trump administration’s immigration policy. 



MSNBC, continuing to seize on Tennessee Senator Bob Corker accusing the Republican Party of acting like a "cult," has doubled down on the accusations of cultishness that started with Chris Matthews. While appearing on The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday, The Root’s editor Jason Johnson suggested that cults of personality have infected the GOP for decades. 



The press is simplistically treating South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford's Tuesday Republican primary loss as exemplifying the price one pays if one doesn't learn, per the Associated Press, "not to cross (President Donald) Trump." A closer look at Sanford's history illustrates that this is a classic case of sudden media respect which ignores why Sanford was so vulnerable.



As Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan appeared as a guest on Tuesday's MSNBC Live, fill-in host Kasie Hunt repeatedly pressed her GOP guest on whether his conservative agenda on immigration reform was consistent with "christianity" -- a religion-based angle one would not hear a Democrat being pressed on by journalists on issues like, say, abortion.



A Net Neutrality-free Internet – is the Internet status quo. It’s “The Internet as we know it.” Everything you knew about the Internet the first two-plus decades – is what you know about the Internet now. Everything else being flung at you by the Media-Left – is just ideological monkey poo.

On Memorial Day, CNN's New Day seemed to commemorate the occasion partly by bringing on a veteran who is running for Congress as a Democrat as co-host Alisyn Camerota gave New York's Pat Ryan a forum to promote banning what he calls "assault rifles." In contrast with Republican guests who are more likely to experience a back and forth debate, Camerota only mildly pushed back with one contrarian question with no followup when he dodged answering it.



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.



On his Sunday show on CNN, as Fareed Zakaria presided over a segment discussing the week's news on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only the left and the far left were included as liberal New York Times columnist Tom Friedman slammed President Donald Trump's Israel policy as "diplomatic pornography," and Palestinian activist Hanan Ashrawi claimed that all of Jerusalem is "occupied" and tried to downplay the culpability of Hamas in the violent Gaza protests and attacks on the Israeli border fence.



CANBERRA, Australia — Here in Australia, "Question Time" has long been one of my favorite exercises of parliamentary democracy. The prime minister and government ministers appear before other elected members in support of their policies, while the opposition asks pointed and sometimes funny questions in an effort to belittle those policies.
