The media are often referred to as the symbolic fourth branch of government, however, that does not guarantee it is committed to delivering the truth and the facts to the American people. Essentially, in what will be an obvious observation to most, the media has become an extension of the Democratic Party, filled with liberal pundits and talking heads rather than neutral journalists and unbiased reporters. As a result, the citizens of this country find themselves playing the role of journalist on a daily basis, working to debunk the lies the media has spewed and find the facts by themselves.

 



On Friday’s The Five, the panel weighed in how the media have reacted to the feud between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Along with a mash-up of media figures exulting Pelosi accompanied by the chyron “Familiar Phrase: Media Parrots Same Line to Describe Trump-Pelosi Feud,” co-host Greg Gutfeld described the media and the Democrats as “incestuous” and “interchangeable.”



After The New York Times published their story last week about President Trump losing $1 billion in the 80s and 90s, did you feel like you already knew about that? So did everyone else, because Trump’s financial problems during that time were well documented. So, during his late Saturday night show, Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld ripped into the Times for trying to drop “a bombshell revealed to millions of people on national TV over a decade and a half ago.”



FNC host Greg Gutfeld made the right move on the rhetorical pool table during Wednesday’s The Five, knocking Brian Stelter as “CNN’s cue ball of concern” after his hissy fit about President Trump skipping Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which Gutfeld dubbed an “orgy” of “sweat lemmings complimenting their shared opinions.”



Doing the comedy that NBC’s Saturday Night Live largely retired from doing at least a decade ago, Fox News Channel’s Greg Gutfeld offered a tour de force to open his Saturday eponymous show in the form of a monologue against the liberal media “jackasses” “crushed” by the Mueller report’s conclusion that there was no Trump-Russia collusion.



With the Jussie Smollett story having disintegrated into tiny pieces, Saturday’s Greg Gutfeld Show had plenty of material and the eponymous host put it to good use, dubbing Smollett, Sandmann, and former CBS correspondent Lara Logan “the three horsemen of the media apocalypse” while having Kat Timpf stage a faux seminar on how journalists make headlines biased.



Led by co-host Greg Gutfeld, three co-hosts on FNC’s The Five lit into Bloomingdale’s during Tuesday’s show for their nonsensical kowtowing to angry journalists by pulling a novelty t-shirt (found by a WPIX-TV reporter Allison Kaden) on a mannequin that read “Fake News.”



During Wednesday’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld delivered a monologue addressing freshman Utah Senator Mitt Romney’s op-ed offering scathing criticism of President Trump’s character; while offering tepid praise of some of his accomplishments.. Gutfeld also referenced the media’s complete 180 on their treatment of Romney, comparing their adoring praise of him now to their coverage of him back in 2012 when he was at the top of the Republican ticket in the 2012 Presidential Election.



Politico Magazine published an article on Tuesday on how to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 with an idea so goofy that you have to wonder if the author, #NeverTrump Juleanna Glover, is secretly working for his re-election. Basically her idea, which was instantly mocked by Politico readers, is that Joe Biden and Mitt Romney form a  third party, or "trans-party" as the author put it, in 2020 to run against both Trump and the Democrat presidential nominee. 



During Wednesday’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld delivered a monologue highlighting the hypocrisy of the media for slamming President Trump when he goes after media outlets but looking the other way when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Fox News during a recent interview with The Guardian.



On Wednesday's edition of The Five on Fox news, Juan Williams passed off Peter Fonda's overtly threatening tweet wishing that 12-year-old Barron Trump should "be put in a cage with pedophiles" as "poorly worded." He also claimed that his fellow hosts were "taking delight" in the appearance of Fonda's series of threatening tweets, because talking about them "takes away from the conversation focusing on what President Trump did."



Thursday, CNN's Brian Stelter theorized, both on the air and in a tweet, that the Trump administration timed its announcement of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster's departure, and the appointment of former UN ambassador John Bolton as his replacement, to distract from his network's upcoming interview of Karen McDougal, the former Playboy model who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump over a decade ago. And they wonder why their ratings and their credibility continue to circle the drain.
