The same morning that a young NSA contractor was charged with leaking confidential national security documents to a liberal media outlet, filmmaker Michael Moore is encouraging more government workers to follow suit. Tuesday, Moore proudly announced his new website, a “safe space” for whistleblowers to leak classified intelligence pertaining to the president, called “TrumpiLeaks.”


Monday on The View, hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg defended and downplayed two left-wing comedians who got into hot water this past week. After Kathy Griffin posed in a photo with a bloodied, severed head of the president, and then later played the victim after being called out for the egregious display, HBO Real Time host Bill Maher caused outrage after using the “N-word” during an interview with Senator Ben Sasse on his Friday show. Despite both cases receiving bipartisan backlash, the radically liberal hosts on The View actually defended both comedians’ actions.


Friday morning on ABC’s The View, the panel spent two segments gossipping about President Trump’s health. After joking about the Trump ‘covfefe’ fiasco, Joy Behar admitted her paranoid theory that Trump was getting dementia and “losing it.” The women also expressed faux concern about his physical health, after an anonymous source told CNN that said Trump was becoming depressed and gaining weight.


Friday morning the big three news networks tore into President Trump for his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord yesterday. Though the move was praised by conservatives, the networks solely reported from the left’s perspective, touting rebukes from radically liberal politicians in the U.S. and globally. Not only that, but the networks went a step further, fretting that Trump’s decision put the U.S. behind in leadership and in respect


Thursday on ABC’s The View, the panel had a heated discussion about the Trump Administration’s planned move to repeal the ObamaCare universal mandate that employers provide birth control to their employees under their company’s health insurance plans. This decision was praised by religious and conservative groups, but the women at The View were not having it, comparing the move to Sharia law.


The media is obsessed with Trump’s tweets, even moreso this week after a simple typo Trump made in the middle of the night, and was deleted shortly afterwards, sent reporters into a tailspin of faux confusion and concern. CNN New Day hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota, along with analysts John Avlon and April Ryan, spent several minutes Thursday morning wondering what the obvious typo meant, and harping on the misspelling as some sort of sign that the White House was out of control.


Chelsea Clinton is making her rounds in the media this week to promote her new children’s feminist book, (that includes a special cameo of her mother!), aptly titled "She Persisted." After one fawning interview on NBC’s Today show Tuesday, Clinton was ready for another cushy interview on Wednesday’s The View.


Just when you think the liberal media couldn’t stoop any lower in denying facts surrounding this election, you get the political savants at The View espousing their daily dose of drivel. Hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar actually tried to rewrite recent history, claiming that Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server was actually “fake news” planted by the Russians.


Even though the media has been pushing hard the Russia-Trump collusion narrative for over six months now, CNN is still denying that the media has any agenda on the matter. Despite the investigation turning up no evidence, CNN has been particularly obnoxious in ignoring this fact. On New Day Tuesday morning, host Alisyn Camerota scoffed after former White House Chief of Staff under Bush Senior, John Sununu, accused her network of reporting their own “version of events” that assumed collusion, without showing any evidence that actually transpired.  


Hillary Clinton came out of the woods to deliver another vicious anti-Trump speech Friday afternoon and the media couldn’t get enough of it. Clinton was delivering the commencement address at her alma mater Wellesley College, and both MSNBC and CNN took precious time out from their endless Russia conspiracy coverage to gush over the failed presidential candidate’s “fiery” “takedown” of our president


After Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte slammed a reporter to the ground yesterday, the media has been in a flurry condemning the violence and trying to tie Donald Trump’s rhetoric to the attack. During a segment on CNN Newsroom Thursday afternoon, conservative radio host Ben Ferguson dismissed the notion that Trump was responsible, before pointing out the hypocrisy from Democrats in supporting disgraced elected officials in their own party. But Ferguson wasn’t able to make his point because as soon as he uttered the name of one of these Democrats, the liberal panel exploded in anger and shut him down.


In yet another eye-roll-worthy segment on Thursday’s The View, host Whoopi Goldberg bragged about President Obama’s record with the media, again. After saying last week that the media was more biased against Obama than they were against Trump, Whoopi had more baseless analysis to give this week on Obama’s record with reporters.


On Thursday’s The View, guest Donald Rumsfeld wouldn’t take the bait when hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin repeatedly pressured the former Secretary of Defense to sentence Donald Trump to impeachment. “Why would you want to engage in hypotheticals?” Rumsfeld pointedly asked the hosts, after they aggressively tried to get Rumsfeld to make a legal judgement on the sitting president.


More research from liberal universities has confirmed that not only is the media biased against Trump, but a majority of the public doesn’t trust what they read from the mainstream media either. These findings echo a Gallup poll from September that showed only 32 percent of Americans trusted the media.

 

Overly sensitive students at college campuses everywhere have learned that if you protest a conservative speaker on your campus, you will be lauded by the media as “brave” and “patriotic.” That’s exactly what happened on Tuesday’s The View, when the panel finally got around to discussing Notre Dame’s graduation ceremony last weekend, where a large group of students walked out during Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement speech to his alma mater.


Twenty-two people are confirmed dead and dozens more injured, after a suicide bomber set off a bomb in a concert arena late Monday night in Manchester, England. Even more sickening is the fact that thousands of young children and teens were at this concert. Despite the horrific nature and impact, ABC was eager to downplay the motive behind the deadly attack. In fact, ABC was more worried about the perpetrators than the victims, warning that this could provoke an “anti-Islamic backlash” across Europe


Crass comedian Chelsea Handler has openly advertised her wish for President Trump to fail. She continued that cheerleading for doom on Monday’s The View, to fellow liberal hosts’ Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg’s delight. Handler fit right in with the liberal hate-fantasies that Trump would go down in flames, an agenda that ironically, this same panel frequently accused conservatives of having against President Obama.


ABC continued blaming everything but Hillary Clinton for her election loss on Friday’s Good Morning America. Even though it’s been over six months since the election, ABC has continued touting the Democrats’ line that WikiLeaks and Comey caused Trump to win.


The liberal ladies at ABC’s The View Thursday took umbrage at President Trump’s comments he made at a recent Coast Guard commencement ceremony, where he said he had been treated “worse and more unfairly” by the media than any politician before him. Instead of bringing up other presidents who could compete for that title as “most disliked by the media,” host Whoopi Goldberg nominated Barack Obama for the unlikely recognition.


This Thursday morning, news broke that Roger Ailes, the creator of Fox News Channel, has died. Despite sexual assault allegations that ousted him from his network last year, there’s no overstating the impact he had on television news. Ailes created a conservative media network that provided a voice for half the country, in a landscape dominated by liberal agendas. But that is exactly the reason why the left hated him and that hate continued today on Twitter in the hours after his death was announced.
