In fact, all of them are pretty racist,” declared Burnett.</p>

CNN Media Panel Questions, Frets If Fox News Is Controlling the Government

<p>Deep in the bowels of the internet, you’ll find conspiracy theorists who believe lizards are in control of the government, but on CNN’s “<em>Reliable Sources</em>” you’ll find people who believe the government is run by a Fox. Fox News that is. It has been a growing concern among left-wing media hacks that, since President Trump took office, conservative media now had the access and influence President Obama had gifted to them. And in recent weeks, CNN has been on a crusade of making it seem like it was abnormal.</p>

<p>In a stunning moment of candor from ABC host George Stephanopoulos during Sunday’s <em>This Week</em>, the longtime Clinton flack lamented the media coverage Hillary Clinton received during the 2016 election.

ABC Suggests Utah Primary a Sign GOP ‘Still Very Much in Trouble’

<p>For months, the liberal media soothsayers have claimed to be reading the bones and insist they see a “blue wave” coming to wipe out the Republican Party.

Maddow Accuses Comey of Casting ‘Aspersions’ on AG Lynch’s Reputation

<p>The second high-profile stop for former FBI Director James Comey on his book tour Thursday was MSNBC’s <em>The Rachel Maddow Show</em>. Just as the show began the White House released all of the memos Comey kept on his interactions with the President, so the interview was dominated by softball questions mostly stemming from those.

NBC Ignores McCabe’s Criminal Referral, ABC and CBS Downplay

<p>Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s retirement went from bad to worse Thursday, when the Bureau’s Inspector General brought his case to federal prosecutors with a criminal referral.

CNN Panel Gives Their Opinions About Why Opinions on Opinion-Shows Is Bad

<p>In a jaw-dropping display that was one part a lack of self-awareness and another part hypocrisy, Wednesday’s prime-time <em>Anderson Cooper 360</em> featured a panel of CNN analysts sharing their opinions about opinion shows like <em>Hannity</em> on Fox News.

<p>In a disgustingly gushy interview on CBS’s <em>The Late Show</em>, former FBI Director James Comey admitted that no one went to investigate the Ritz-Carlton Moscow hotel room where the Steele dossier alleged President Trump paid for the services of prostitutes.

Morbid: MSNBC Uses Death of Barbara Bush to Malign the State of the GOP

<p>The news of Barbara Bush’s passing wasn’t even an hour old Tuesday night when MSNBC host Chris Hayes had his <em>All In</em> panel use the news to malign the current state of the Republican Party.

CBS Frets Comey’s Comments Complicated his Testimony in Case, Impeachment

<p>The day after former FBI Director James Comey’s interview with ABC News where he repeatedly slammed President Trump, the liberal media was largely fawning for his chides and speculation of Russian influence.

CBS Highlights NFL Cheerleader Discriminated Against for Being Christian

Nets Fawn for Comey Book Excerpts Blasting Trump, Apology for Angering Hillary

<p>The liberal media don’t appear to show any signs of whiplash due to their wild love/hate relationship with former FBI Director James Comey.

O’Donnell: Paul Ryan Worse Than Pedophile and Slave Owning Speakers

<p>MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell has a reputation as a liberal bomb thrower (and hater of hammering). And during Wednesday’s edition of <em>The Last Word</em>, he had his claws out for House Speaker Paul Ryan who earlier that day announced he was retiring.

We Finally Arrived! Bernstein Declares ‘Constitutional Crisis’ Is Now

<p>For many months, the liberal media had been warning us President Trump had the country on a crash course with a constitutional crisis because of his anger at the special counsel investigation. Arguably, chief among those doomsday soothsayers was CNN’s Carl Bernstein who has been comparing Trump to Nixon and Watergate since former FBI Director James Comey was fired. But during an appearance on <em>Anderson Cooper 360</em> Tuesday, Bernstein had an update: “We’re in a constitutional crisis.”</p>

ABC, NBC Push Smear: Trump Helped Cause Syrian Gas Attack of Civilians

<p>A top story Monday evening was the anticipation President Trump would announce a plan to strike back at Syria in retaliation for apparently using chemical weapons on civilian populations.

CNN’s Stelter Claims Fox News Pushed ‘Manufactured Crisis’ at the Border

<p>With the National Guard on its way to the U.S.-Mexico border to aid Border Patrol, CNN’s Brian Stelter kicked off <em>Reliable Sources</em> on Sunday by suggesting that Fox News had a hand in their deployment.

<p>In a very candid expression of his displeasure for President Trump during an appearance on <em>Anderson Cooper 360</em> Thursday, CNN commentator David Gergen suggested that the President was bringing about the “death” of democracy in America.

CNN’s Stelter Hides Liberal Bias of Former Sinclair Producer He Champions

<p>In an obnoxious and greatly misleading article published on Wednesday, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter championed former KHGI-TV producer Justin Simmons for quitting his job at a Sinclair Broadcast Group-owned ABC affiliate in Nebraska following the controversy of their scripted promise to be factual. While Stelter tried to portray Simmons as a down-the-middle journalist standing up to corrupt conservative state propaganda, his subject has a long history steeped in the leftist anti-Trump resistance movement.</p>

CNN Deeply Concerned by ‘Trump Playing to His Base On Multiple Fronts’

<p>In recent days and weeks, President Trump has made broad and swift moves on policies ranging from immigration to tariffs to looking to pull out of Syria. All of these policy actions are popular with the President’s base, a.k.a blue collar working Americans.

CBS, NBC Decry Trump Pulling U.S. Out of Syria, Declare It ‘Retreat’

CNN Plagiarist Zakaria Says Trump’s ‘Words Are Weightless Often’

<p>Often while watching CNN, one can only just shake their head at the utter lack of self-awareness regarding many of their anti-Trump declarations.

And to add to the irony of the situation, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper agreed that it was a sorry state of affairs.</p>

The Company Line: Cupp Smears Sinclair, Sounds Like Heaven’s Gate Cult

<p>Normally, HLN’s <em>S.E.

Disgraced Anchor Dan Rather Loses It Over Sinclair Promising to Be Factual

<p>On Monday, disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather attacked Sinclair Broadcast Group in a rambling Facebook post because they had their anchors read promotional statements promising to be factual in their reporting.

HLN’s Cupp Calls Out Liberal Media for Opposing Conservative Views

<p>HLN conservative S.E. Cupp has been on a roll this week with using her show (<em>S.E. Cupp Unfiltered</em>) drawing attention to the media’s massive liberal bias. First, a CNN host admitted he let an anti-gun teen get away with falsehoods, then she and her panel tore into the media for unfairly smearing Trump’s recent hires as unqualified talking heads. On Thursday, she ratcheted up the criticism by calling them out for being hostile to conservative views and hiring ones whose principles were squishy.</p>

Banana: CNN Smears Dr. Jackson as Just an Unqualified Trump Loyalist

<p>On Wednesday night, CNN continued its unholy and fact-devoid crusade to tar and feather every one of President Trump’s new high-profile government hires as nothing more than a clueless Trump stooge off the street or a Fox News personality.

Nets Ignore DOJ Watchdog Investigating Trump-Russia Alleged Probe Bias

<p>The saga of the Trump-Russia collusion probe took an interesting turn Wednesday when it was announced the Justice Department’s Inspector General had opened up an investigation into accusations the probe was politically biased.

HLN Panel Slams Media for Smearing Trump’s Hires as Talking Heads

<p>In what appeared to be a shot across the bow of their parent network CNN on Tuesday, the panel on HLN’s <em>S.E. Cupp Unfiltered</em> slammed media outlets who discredited President Trump’s new White House hires because they spent time on cable news. “So is the media smearing the President's pick just to beat up on Trump or are these TV talking heads actually dangerous,” conservative host S.E. Cupp wondered.</p>

ABC, NBC Fret Citizenship Question on Census Could Affect Dem House Seats

<p>On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced that it would be reapplying a question about citizenship to the 2020 census form, a question that was removed by the Obama administration for 2010’s. While the <em>CBS Evening News</em> didn’t find it newsworthy, both ABC’s <em>World News Tonight</em> and <em>NBC Nightly News</em> dedicated time to stoking fear about the question being asked. They worried it could drive illegal immigrant communities into the shadows and cost Democrats valuable seats in the House.</p>
