There were some 2 million people crammed into downtown Toronto on Monday to celebrate the Raptors’ championship victory in the NBA finals, when shots rang out in an area containing roughly 60,000 people. Despite at least four people being shot and luckily no deaths, NBC Nightly News decided they didn’t have time to cover that story. But they did have time to promote Democratic New Jersey Senator and 2020 candidate Cory Booker’s “Big Idea” of baby bonds.
For the last three years, we have heard nonstop from the left about how Donald Trump is undermining America by questioning the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Some criticism of the President was warranted, but, over the last 48 hours, Democrats and their liberal media allies have gone out of their way to question U.S. intelligence showing that Iran was responsible for attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
New on June 17: For more than two years, the media speculated about Trump campaign “collusion” with Russia.

Keeping up its propaganda series to boost 2020 Democratic candidates, on Sunday, NBC Nightly News devoted the latest My Big Idea report to Washington State Governor Jay Inslee pushing radical climate change policies. Correspondent Harry Smith gushed over environmental crusader making it the “single focus” of his campaign.
During Last Week Tonight Sunday, host John Oliver devoted nearly his entire show to advocating for the impeachment of President Trump while attempting to portray himself as neutral on the matter.

The co-hosts of Morning Joe on Monday turned to the help of a psychotherapist on the subject of how to talk politics with people you passionately disagree with. Keep in mind that these are people who compared Donald Trump and his supporters to Hitler and the Nazis. For the most part, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski spent much of the segment wondering what’s wrong with those who don’t listen to them.
CNN host and media janitor Brian Stelter set up a pretty easy mess for his cast of liberal media types to clean up during Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources”: whether or not the liberal media wanted to see President Trump impeached.
Freshman New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a darling of the liberal media because of her young age and unabashed promotion of socialism. They celebrated her ludicrous Green New Deal while ignoring her many campaign finance violations and ethics questions.

In recent appearances on MSNBC, far-left commentator and former CNN contributor Sally Kohn has again been spreading misinformation on the government's handling of illegal immigrants as she has repeated incorrect claims that legal asylum seekers were separated from their children.

Movie criticism ain’t what it used to be. Film critics once served audiences by telling them if a movie was worth their hard-earned cash. Some critics still cling to that approach.Others use their forums to promote their ideological agendas. And, since the vast majority of film critics lean left, the results are predictably woke.
New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Remember when that happened on June 12, 2015? No? That was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News 11 years ago this week. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.
In an op-ed from Tuesday's Wall Street Journal, former New York City prosecutor Linda Fairstein responded to the recent Netflix series on the Central Park Five, and accused its producer, Ava DuVernay, of fabricating words attributed to her character, played by Felicity Huffman, to portray her as a racist who was determined to convict the teens in the face of an alleged lack of evidence against them.
