CNN host Chris Cuomo appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers September 5, where he discussed all the things in the news cycle, from the Bob Woodward book to Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Discussing Tuesday's hearing, Cuomo accurately explained that the ability to appoint justices was why many conservatives embraced Trump.

Appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers Monday night, aired early Tuesday morning, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt rejected President Trump’s criticism of the liberal media by laughably claiming that NBC News has “earned a lot of trust with our audiences and a tradition of excellence.” Holt of course took over Nightly News after his predecessor Brian Williams was caught lying about his coverage of the Iraq war.

CNN host Van Jones, the former Obama White House aide, interviewed NBC late-night host Seth Meyers with the usual reverence that liberals offer to comedians of the Resistance. “You are doing a phenomenal service to the country,” Jones gushed. “You are an icon, a legend.” But the best comedy in this interview came when Jones asked about the jesters lining up against Trump.

On the NBC show Late Night with Seth Meyers, the Catholic Church was roasted as a den of pedophiles.

Writer Jenny Hagel added: "And because they're too busy hosting a 2,000-year-long pedophile convention."
CNN Tonight host Don Lemon trapped himself in a lie this week, falsely claiming that the Fox News Channel (or “Trump TV” in his mind) had never covered the White House resignation of Hope Hicks.
