Indulging in obvious identify politics in Wednesday’s New York Times, reporter Elizabeth Dias celebrated Rashida Tlaib’s Democratic primary victory in Detroit right along with her supporters in “Candidate’s Palestinian Heritage Infuses Sense of Community in Detroit.” Already, her story offers a remarkable counterpoint to anti-Muslim policy and sentiment rising around the country, and especially to President Trump, who has banned travel from several majority-Muslim countries....Ms. Tlaib, 42, represents a new addition to the mosaic of American politics."
In recent days, liberal New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has targeted Fox News and its parent company News Corp with accusations of damaging the country.

Shortly before a white supremacist rally was to be held outside the White House, ABC’s Good Morning America touted the ramblings of disgraced former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman. In her new book, ironically called Unhinged, she described the President as a “racist, bigot, and misogynist,” so, of course, the liberal media were enthralled. So much show that they touted a TMZ video of her suggesting President Trump wanted a “race war”.
During the handoff between CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time and CNN Tonight on Monday, Don Lemon unleashed his fury as he chastised President Trump and his supporters as “people who will lie, steal, and cheat, lie to their mother.” The tirade comes after the President questioned his intelligence on Friday, liberal journalists called Trump racist because of it, and fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo egged him on.
On Monday evening, CNN’s Anderson Cooper endured the political equivalent of banging one’s head against a wall as his guests repeatedly disagreed with his framing of President Trump as a racist for questioning the intelligence of NBA star LeBron James. In a segment near the end of his 8:00 p.m. Eastern show, a frustrated Cooper repeatedly saw his narrative shot down by two black guests, neither of whom appeared willing to act as the racial pawns that the CNN host clearly wished they would be.
It’s well known that President Trump has no problem with lobbing insults that opponents and those who attack him. It’s something the liberal media whines about almost every day. But on NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd misled viewers by appearing to insinuate that the President reserved insults of intelligence to African-Americans. Thus calling him a racist yet again.
Yahoo! writer Hope Schreiber made the site’s front page with her contribution to the controversy over Sarah Jeong, the New York Times’ new editorial board member with a long history of racist anti-white tweets. It’s clear from the headline that Yahoo! considers the whole thing a right-wing hit-job against Jeong: “Right-wing websites target New York Times' new writer over what they call 'anti-white' tweets.” Here’s the Yahoo headline as it appeared in the tab for the story: “Alt-right targets journalist over ‘anti-white’ tweets.”
During an obnoxious appearance on the Wednesday edition of HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta opened up and showcased his true disdain for Trump supporters after they booed and heckled him at a rally the night before. According to Acosta, when he was surrounded by those Trump supporters in Tampa Bay, Florida, “Honestly, it felt like we weren't in America anymore. I don't know how to put it any more plainly than that.”
Name-calling is a favorite weapon of children in grade school and the Left in politics. They both try to beat their opponents by slapping the biggest, baddest label on them that they can think of and making it stick. One of the media’s favorite labelling tactics is branding Trump supporters with that bone-chilling word: “cult.”
Olvídese de Hitler, Pol Pot o Genghis Khan, por nombrar solo algunos de los principales contendientes por el título.

On Sunday evening, the NBC Nightly News ran a full report hyping a couple of cases in which pharmacists refused to fill a prescription -- one for an abortion and one for transgender hormone treatment.

In the days since President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin, the liberal media have been bringing back their Russian collusion narrative in a very big way. They’re now openly pushing claims Trump committing treason, a crime punishable by death, and have been growing bold in suggesting the President was a Russian agent. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter even boasted about their new courage during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources."
