Despite the fact that Democrats had been working to remove President Trump from office since the moment he got elected, and that four of his current 2020 rivals were voting to remove him from office in the Senate, ABC’s World News Tonight had an issue with Senate Republicans signing the oath of impartiality for the trial on Thursday.



Talk about #FirstWorldProblems for the liberal media.  Feigning outrage on Thursday’s Situation Room about how Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) referred to chief congressional correspondent Manu Raju hours earlier as “a liberal hack,” host Wolf Blitzer bemoaned it as a “disgusting” and “awful, awful thing” that, if Arizona voters are smart, could punish her in November (i.e. elect Democrat Mark Kelly instead).



Journalists are a fragile bunch aren’t they? They get away with quite a lot, but when Trump mutters “fake news,” or a senator calls a CNN hack a “liberal hack,” they respond as if Kim Jong Un’s torturing them for stealing a propaganda poster. Fear not however, as HBO and Harvey Weinstein nemesis Ronan Farrow are teaming up to remind the world just how “under fire” journalists are, not only around the world but in America.



Our democracy is dying: Russia/Ukrainegate has floundered and legal abortion may not be long for this world. In this dire time for progressives, a disgusting pro-abortion art installation must give them comfort. The Guardian and Bloomberg News praised the latest abomination in modern art as a necessary balm to the country’s anti-abortion “stigma” and a great way to “raise funds” for the child-killing procedure.

 


On Thursday FX released a trailer for its upcoming series on Hulu Mrs. America about conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly’s fight against radical feminists and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the 1970s. You can tell, based on the video and coverage of it, where sympathies are supposed to lie.



Former stripper-turned-rap artist Cardi B has been talking about leaving the country in the wake of America’s current standoff with Iran.

 


“Juice” singer Lizzo’s peppy embrace of herself as a confident obese woman may be a fun (albeit bizarre) pop culture fad in the short term, but one famous weight loss coach reminds us that it might not be so positive in the long term.



Time Magazine is trying to put out the fires of hysteria generated by the death of U.S.-designated Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani. Apparently the death of the brutal military leader weighs heavy, especially on the consciences of America’s children, so Time produced a guide for parents who need to talk to their kids about it.



“Don’t believe Iranian propaganda about the mourning for [General Qasem] Soleimani.” That’s the message or plea from Iranian journalist and activist Masih Alinejad published by The Washington Post on Monday. Unfortunately, as NewsBusters reporting on the liberal media’s reaction to Soleimani’s demise shows, they were not heeding her warning and were willingly becoming mouthpieces for the murderous regime.



As NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham recently reported, CNN’s Erin Burnett conducted a sit-down interview with Iranian ambassador to the U.N., Majid Takht Ravanchi on Friday where she treated him to some slow-pitch softball questions. The network took a complete 180 on Sunday when State of the Union host Jake Tapper unloaded on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by grilling him on the airstrike that killed Iran’s General Qasem Soleimani, and acting skeptical about the need to take out the terrorist.



Award-winning Hollywood director Ron Howard provided his opinion on President Donald Trump over the New Year’s holiday. He claimed that despite his reality TV success, the current president is a “self-serving, ego-maniac.” Howard’s Twitter lecture began with the Solo: A Star Wars Story director sharing The Washington Post’s piece on how the President’s economy has “performed well” but is “by no means an unheard of performance.”



Reporter Liz Robbins wrapped up the year in left-wing athletic activism on the front of the New York Times sports page New Year’s Day, though she put it in more flattering terms in “Playing for Trophies, and for Change.” Robbins  doesn't seem to like sports: "Long a bastion for abuse, homophobia, misogyny and injury, the sporting world has started to embrace diversity, vulnerability, gender equity and activism." Hooray?
