In a Thursday vote that was more for show than for substance, the United Nations General Assembly in a vote of 128-9 (with 34 abstentions) condemned the United States for rightfully declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And during NBC Nightly News, the network flaunted the decision by the elitist body, touted their rebuke of the U.S., and described the U.S. as somehow acting like a “bully.” All while ignoring the U.N.’s history of targeted anti-Semitism.
In the lead-up to Congress passing the Republican tax cut plan, various CNN shows on Tuesday played up a CNN poll finding that 55 percent of Americans oppose the proposal. Such public opposition is hardly shocking given that dominant left-leaning media outlets like CNN have pushed negative spin against the tax cut proposal -- a fact noted by Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy just this morning on CNN's New Day show.
CNN: The news outlet that pompously declares they’re “the most trusted name in news” threw that out the window on Monday when their national security analyst and Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper suggested that President Trump was being treated like an intelligence asset by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper made a keen observation on Monday afternoon about the media’s double standard when it comes to sexual assault accusers, pointing out that “the media treated” Bill Clinton’s female accusers “poorly” and were never afforded “the same respect” Roy Moore’s accusers have rightfully received these past four days.
A "fierce backlash" has caused the Walt Disney Company to reverse its decision to bar the Los Angeles Times from press screenings of its movies following an investigation by the newspaper into the media giant’s business dealings in Anaheim, California. Disney’s change of course on Tuesday came after a number of news outlets, including the Washington Post, the New York Times and the A.V. Club -- an entertainment website featuring reviews and interviews that examine films, music, television, books, games and other elements of pop culture -- said they were all boycotting advance screenings of Disney films “in solidarity” with the Los Angeles newspaper.
President Trump was renowned for his prolific and infamous use of Twitter to both aid his message and to stir up controversy. But during Tuesday’s The Lead on CNN, host Jake Tapper tried to link someone else’s Instagram controversy to the President.

Most people in today’s “mainstream media” almost never admit they have a liberal bias when covering the news, but Jake Tapper -- host of The Lead, a weekday program on the Cable News Network -- did just that during an interview with Andy Greene of the Rolling Stone magazine that was posted on Tuesday, August 15.
There was civil unrest in Russia Monday, as anti-corruption protestors took to the streets all across the country during a national holiday celebration. Roughly 1,500 people were arrested for gathering to denounce their government. The White House came out strong and condemned Russia for cracking down on the peaceful protestors.

Late Tuesday morning, leaked images of washed up comedian and CNN News Year’s Eve co-host Kathy Griffin holding a bloody mockup of President Trump’s head aloft went viral.

The members of Tapper’s panel were unfazed by the display, with Molly Ball of The Atlantic claiming that the Trump family’s outrage was just them playing the victim card.
