Pigs Fly: Nets Suddenly Respect President Bush After He Skewers Trump

<p>Christmas came early for the liberal Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) on Thursday when former President George W. Bush spoke out against the Donald Trump administration.

And the icing on their anti-Trump cake was former President Obama doing the exact same thing too.</p>

Cupp Slams Media/Politicians: No ‘Basic Curiosity’ for Niger Ambush

<p>During Wednesday’s edition of HLN's <em>Unfiltered</em>, host S.E. Cupp was outraged over the fact that much of the media coverage this week in and around D.C. has centered around what President Trump may or may not have said to a Gold Star family instead of demanding answers for the ambush in Niger. “It's a little empty to be outraged over what the President did or didn't say to these Gold Star families. If you're not also asking: Why they are now gold star families,” she lamented to her panel.</p>

Excessive Celebration: ABC Falsely Claims NFL Not Making Players Stand

<p>Tuesday’s edition of ABC’s <em>World News Tonight</em> was a prime example of how sensationalism in journalism damages credibility. Instead of leading the show by reporting on something important like CBS did with the opioid epidemic, or political conflict like NBC, ABC chose to celebrate the NFL seemingly not requiring players to stand during the National Anthem at a meeting earlier in the day. But the problem was, setting the league’s policy was not the goal of that particular meeting.</p>

Nets Forget Obama Admin Championed Bergdahl as a ‘Hero’ Coming Home

<p>In a military courtroom in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina on Monday, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and faces up to life in prison. Back in 2014, President Obama traded five dangerous terrorists to get Bergdahl back. And in a flawed political calculation, the administration championed him as a 'hero.' But considering the massive blowback that followed the ill-advised move, the Big Three Networks omitted that from their Monday evening reports.</p>

Nets Omit Federal Judge Rejecting Menendez Motion for Acquittal

<p>In a devastating day in court for New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez Monday, a federal judge threw out the defense’s motion for acquittal, which was made last Thursday when the prosecution rested its case.

Van Jones: Trump ‘Willing’ to Have Americans Die ‘to Get His Way’

<p>On Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order that made it easier for small and medium-size businesses to band together in order to buy health insurance as a group and get a better rate.

CNN: ‘Autocrat’ Trump Violating First Amendment and Should Be Removed

<p>CNN’s un-<em>Reliable Sources</em> went off the rails Sunday as media preacher Brian Stelter dedicated part of his sermon to attacking President Trump for slamming NBC News. “These next words from President Trump, this tweet I'm about to show you, these are not the words of a western democratic leader, they’re the word of an autocrat,” he declared. And added to mix were two guests who claimed the President’s words, not actions, were in direct violation of NBC’s First Amendment rights and he should be removed from office because of it.</p>

SNL Mocks ‘Kellywise’ Conway as Evil Clown from Horror Film ‘IT’

<p>After taking a week to slam alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, NBC’s <em>Saturday Night Live</em> poured great detail into a skit that mocked White House adviser Kellyanne Conway as a loon and for her makeup.

ABC/CBS Tout NBC’s Trump Story, Nothing on Their Weinstein Blackout

<p>On Wednesday, ABC and CBS were absolutely giddy over an NBC report that asserted President Trump wanted to inflate the U.S. nuclear arsenal “ten-fold” to 1960s levels.

But as they were hyping NBC’s reporting on Trump, they turned a blind eye to NBC’s dubious coverage of alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.</p>

Nets Yawn as Federal Prosecutors Rest Case in Menendez Bribery Trial

<p>Justice Department prosecutors rested their case against Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez on Wednesday, much to the silence of the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC).

<p>During her show on Tuesday, HLN’s S.E. Cupp unloaded on liberal Hollywood for keeping Harvey Weinstein’s predatory nature an “open secret” throughout the industry while slamming and shaming conservative women as traitors to their gender. “But there's another problem here, and it's why so many women like me are angry that Hollywood protected Weinstein’s horrific treatment of women for so long,” she exclaimed. “That's because Hollywood and Democrats—the combined self-proclaimed arbiters of “what’s good for women”—have for years insisted that I am bad for women.”</p>

Nets Downplay NFL Commissioner Caving to Trump in Kneeling Saga

<p>NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handed President Trump a victory on Tuesday after he sent a memo to all 32 teams directing them to have their players stand during the playing of the National Anthem. When players across the league took a knee during the National Anthem to protest the President, the liberal media went absolutely gaga. In fact, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) dedicated 92 minutes of coverage over two days, which resulted in the drowning out of the Puerto Rico Crisis (only 25 minutes). But following the NFL’s concession, all of them downplayed it.</p>

CBS Bemoans Loosening Energy Regs, Glorifies China’s Green Energy

<p>On Monday, EPA Director Scott Pruitt announced that he would be putting an end to the Obama-era policy known and the Clean Power Plan.

CNN Journalist Panel Whines Slow Progress on Gun Control

<p>In the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, much of the political world’s attention was trained on the rifle accessory known as a bump stock.
