Well, I’ll say this about Spike’s The Mist, I was only half-right about my recent prediction. Instead of a molesting priest, we get the fanatic of a violent one threatening heretics. I would say that’s a pleasant surprise, but what we get is hardly a pleasant substitute. Come to think of it, it’s not even a surprise.
Thursday’s NBC Nightly News featured one of the classic tricks in the liberal media playbook as Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt declined to disclose the liberal activist history of a woman in her story about the Senate push to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Prior to the live shot at the end of her segment, Hunt explained that “all the uncertainty” about ObamaCare “worries Theresa Bohannan” because “[h]er son was born with a rare heart condition.”
Amidst all the warranted coverage of White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s disturbingly vulgar tirade about Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News ignored the poignant White House event honoring the law enforcement officers who responded to the June 14 congressional GOP baseball shooting.
Media Research Center research director Rich Noyes dropped by the Thursday edition of FBN’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast and showcased the latest example of the liberal media’s refusal to cover both the latest Trump controversies and positive stories like Wednesday’s Foxconn jobs announcement.
On Thursday, The Hill reporter Joe Concha put the media on notice. Speaking about the news that a staffer for Florida Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had been arrested trying to flee the country, he blasted the liberal media for ignoring the scandal.
0.01% looks like a small percentage, but $69,000,000 is an enormous number. That’s how much the military would spend on healthcare in 2018 for its 250 transgender members currently in transition, according to NBC’s online article. But instead of focusing on numbers like that, the network news shows touted “outrage” against Trump and interviewed experts claiming the president’s tweets “harm national security.”
During their evening news shows July 26, the three broadcast networks expressed anger, while some ignored critical numbers. NBC Nightly News’ White House Correspondent Kristen Welker reported that, “The latest report shows medical costs for transgender troops represent a small fraction of the overall defense budget.” According to NBC, there are 250 active transgender military members currently in the medical process of “transitioning.”
CBS This Morning journalists on Thursday defended the practice of leaking from officials inside the White House and said that investigations cracking down can lead to “terror” inside an administration. Talking about efforts by Anthony Scaramucci to eliminate the leaks, John Dickerson explained, “The problem with leak investigations in all past White Houses is that it clamps down on people inside of the White House. It creates an atmosphere of a little bit of terror.”
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon declared that President Donald Trump's announced policy of barring transgenders from serving in the military would be a "return to the dark ages." He then proceeded to command over two panels on the subject in which each panel featured just one right-leaning guest to defend the policy up against two liberal guests plus host Lemon to advocate the liberal view.
The TLC show I Am Jazz went out of its way to smack non-transgender viewers in the July 26th episode titled "Face Your Demons." The highlight was a Facebook Live chat with Jazz and two other transgender teens which was made in the name of education and support for others.

NBC’s The Carmichael Show has tried to break the stigma surrounding drugs, euthanasia, and now stripping. Although Wednesday night’s episode, “Maxine’s Sister,” began by condemning stripping, the episode takes a hard turn and ends by having the loudest voice against exotic dancing at a strip club’s amateur night. Right after Maxine (Amber Stevens West) announces, “being a stripper is nothing to be ashamed of,” she learns that her sister, Casey, is a stripper.
On Wednesday, CBS This Morning devoted over three minutes of air time to video of a woman refusing to answer routine questions from a Border Patrol agent at a check point near the U.S.-Mexico border.

A California teacher posted this video of border patrol agents detaining her after she refused to say if she was a U.S. citizen.”
