Yes, it's happening again for the third time this week: ABC’s Designated Survivor joined the growing number of shows focusing on ousting a president from office. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a trend. The April 18 episode “Kirkman Agonistes” follows the public leak of audio notes from President Tom Kirkman’s (Kiefer Sutherland) private therapy sessions after the death of his wife. Because of the leaks, the press and even D.C. bureaucrats begin questioning Kirkman’s fitness to lead the nation.



In a jaw-dropping display that was one part a lack of self-awareness and another part hypocrisy, Wednesday’s prime-time Anderson Cooper 360 featured a panel of CNN analysts sharing their opinions about opinion shows like Hannity on Fox News. Their opinions varied but were largely against the mixing of opinion and news. And that was their opinion on the news of the day. The hypocrisy was so thick you could cut it with a knife.



For the second time in as many days, frequent CNN and MSNBC guest/former Republican Congressman David Jolly proved his usefulness to the liberal media by not criticizing the relationship between President Trump and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity on conflicts of interest or policy, but by cheaply condemning Hannity for not having graduated college.



In the April 18 episode of Fox’s Empire, titled “Of Hardiness is Mother,” a random profane line is inserted into a conversation about Cookie’s rising blood pressure as she blames it on President Trump’s tweeting. Yes, really. Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) suffered a heart attack during last week’s episode and the Lyon family is scrambling to help her fully recover. In order to change her lifestyle into a healthier one, Lucious (Terrence Howard) hires a chef to prepare heart-healthy meals for the family.



The communist government of Cuba held their sham election for a new leader on Wednesday after President Raul Castro stepped down to make way for Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel to take the reins. The news of the transition broke early that morning, but both ABC and NBC appeared too lazy to even give it a simple brief on their morning and evening broadcasts. CBS and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo all ran reports on the transition.



Appearing on Wednesday’s NBC Today show to promote the Tribecca Film Festival, actor Robert De Niro also happily discussed his cameo on Saturday Night Live portraying Special Counsel Robert Mueller, even hoping for future skits where he could arrest Donald Trump and throw him jail.



With over 6 million subscribers, Philip DeFranco is one of the most prolific and popular YouTubers. The site’s lack of transparency when it comes to demonetization, however, is driving him and many other YouTubers away. DeFranco, like other YouTubers, also claimed his videos are being suppressed by internal YouTube algorithms.

 


NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie was ready to convict Donald Trump of criminal wrongdoing on Wednesday’s Today show, as she interviewed former FBI Director James Comey. However, she worried that the fired law enforcement official’s tell-all book might “mess up” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s supposedly inevitable “prosecution” of the President.



They’re on a roll and they can’t be stopped! NBC’s ultra-liberal high school drama Rise is in its sixth week and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down their obvious leftist agenda.



On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of whether conservative FNC host Sean Hannity should have divulged earlier that he has an association with Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen, there seemed to be unanimous agreement that Fox News is "not news."



While reminiscing about the life of Barbara Bush, all three networks on Wednesday noted her toughness and willingness to fight. On CBS This Morning, journalist Bob Schieffer called the former First Lady the “enforcer.” What none of the networks noted in their tributes is that Mrs. Bush wouldn’t hesitate to bluntly call out liberal media bias when she saw it. 



CW’s Black Lightning finally comes to the close of a mostly uneventful yet still obnoxiously SJW first season. The latest comic-book series decides to end on a low note with a "Make America Great Again" reference from the bad guy. I guess the only real supervillain in media nowadays is Trump.
