The liberal media are forever vigilant about racism and anti-Semitism among the "white nationalists," but go very soft when hateful anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam surfaces at public events. On Thursday, Farrakhan was invited to speak at a memorial service for the rapper Nipsey Hussle, and "mainstream" media outlets either skipped right over it, or noted it without criticism. CNN included Farrakhan in articles titled "The stars align for Nipsey Hussle."
The liberal media launched an offensive against both of President Donald Trump’s selections for the Federal Reserve board of governors.
The media have outdone themselves slinging mud at the “controversial” and “unqualified” picks of economics writer and Club for Growth founder Stephen Moore and millionaire businessman, former CEO and former presidential candidate Herman Cain.

In the latest series of attempts to raise the profile of South Bend Mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, Never-Trumpers and liberals have attempted to highlight his Christian faith. New York Times columnist David Brooks tried to showcase the openly gay mayor’s “conservative family values” while USA Today’s Kirsten Powers hailed his “countercultural approach to Christianity.”
Not long after spiking an op-ed because of its decision to use “not reliable” conservative sources, USA Today published a cover story Tuesday that came across as more of an op-ed than an actual news story.

Ever since USA Today was founded in 1982, people at the national weekday newspaper have tried to maintain a reputation as a “centrist” media outlet. However, that philosophy hit a roadblock last weekend, when a self-described “libertarian conservative” USA Today editor named David Mastio as a rejected an op-ed because the writer cited such “not reliable” sources as The Federalist and National Review.
A melting glacier in Greenland has reversed course, adding ice mass and shocking scientists. But since it’s supposed to be part of global warming, it’s “bad news” even when the glacier added ice.
On Monday, a newly-released USA Today/Suffolk University poll found that 50 percent of Americans agreed with President Trump’s assertion that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was a “witch hunt.” However, viewers of the Big Three broadcast networks would never know that since the evening and morning newscasts on NBC, ABC, and CBS completely ignored the story.

Concluding an 11-part series on what it would change in sports, USA Today is calling for an end to the playing of the national anthem at sporting events. Columnist Nancy Armour called the pregame renditions of the Star Spangled Banner a "lazy excuse for patriotism" and a "faux display of national pride better suited for countries run by dictators or despots."
An opinion piece by USA Today concludes that America does not need Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban entertaining any ideas about the presidency. Because he's too much like you know who: Donald John Trump. This is from the paper's editorial board or a political writer? No, it's the opinion of sports columnist Nancy Armour.
Each year the Super Bowl features numerous side events, and last month's SB 53 in Atlanta included one designed to combat the so-called "problem" of sports providing a "homophobic space." "Don't-Stick-To-Sports-Illustrated" writer Jenny Vrentas tells us how this came down in her story, "NFL, the Queer Community and the Quiet Path to Acceptance".
