While the liberal media continue their ongoing impeachment obsession, and with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) directing her chairmen to draft articles of impeachment, the jobs market and stock market continue to steamroll along. “Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 266,000 in November, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 3.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today,” according to a Dec. 6 United States Bureau of Labor Statistics News Release.

On Monday, The Daily Beast published an article with the title “Melania Trump’s Joyless Christmas Decorations Are Back to Haunt Your Nightmares.” The author of the piece, Daily Beast style writer Alaina Demopoulos, went so far as to call the White House Christmas display “state-sponsored jingoism.” While the opening sentence of the article gives the impression that “Melania Trump tried this Christmas,” it did not take long for Demopoulos to begin trashing the First Lady’s White House Christmas displays in both the past and present.

Liberals and the media love to hate billionaires -- but without them, where would the world be today?

Apple TV+'s flagship series, The Morning Show, was inspired by a book by CNN's Brian Stelter and it shows. Clearly meant to be prestige television in the mold of HBO, the series is more preachy, self-indulgent Newsroom than juicy, story-driven Big Little Lies.

Liberal media outlets predictably tried to put lipstick on a bloated pig in touting Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) estimated $52 trillion Medicare-for-All plan.

Even though it’s been more than a decade since Katie Couric hosted a news program on ABC, CBS or NBC, “America’s Sweetheart” is still popular with many journalists who continue to shower her with praise and awards.
