In a profile of White House Correspondents Dinner host Larry Wilmore, CNN’s At This Hour co-host John Berman openly admitted (unlike CBS This Morning) on Thursday to Wilmore’s agreement that The Nightly Show is “admittedly liberal” and “trends left” toward “more pro-Democratic policies and politicians.”

CNN's Alisyn Camerota tossed mostly hardballs during her interview of Carly Fiorina on Thursday's New Day, especially on the issue of outsourcing. Camerota first cited how the former HP executive was "very honest about the jobs...[she] outsourced" back in 2004, and wondered, "Do you fear that your take back then — and the outsourcing — will come back to haunt you in Indiana?" The anchor followed up with a clip from Laura Ingraham, who spotlighted how outsourcing "became really an albatross around her neck" during her 2010 Senate race against Barbara Boxer, and repeated her question.

Mic.com has a penchant for misinterpreting the news. A Monday article accused conservative lawyer Anita Staver of threatening to use a gun to deter transgenders who enter the Target ladies’ room.
Target’s new policy to allow transgenders to use the bathroom of their choice in stores has spurred controversy, including a boycott petition by the American Family Association (AFA) garnering almost one million signatures.

On Thursday, all three network morning shows took out the long knives and savaged Ted Cruz for naming Carly Fiorina as his running mate. The CBS, NBC, and ABC broadcasts dismissed the move as a “desperate” “Hail Mary pass” and touted Republican frontrunner Donald Trump mocking the announcement. At the top of CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose set the nasty tone of the coverage: “Critics hammer Ted Cruz's announcement of a running mate as a desperate attempt to revive his campaign.”

The journalists at NBC’s Today howled with outrage at Donald Trump’s attacks on Hillary Clinton, echoing ABC’s assessment that the businessman might be sexist. Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie spent the first half of their interview, Thursday, demanding he explain recent remarks. Lauer lectured, “ You on the other hand seem to continue to say things that alienate women voters.”

Fusion’s Katie McDonough has weighed in with an article titled “What will the Bernie Sanders revolution look like without Bernie Sanders?” that gives us a revealing glimpse of what to expect from the ‘after Bern.’ Looks like a number of Bernie's followers now appear to have come to the realization that their exalted savior is actually going to crash and burn out of the 2016 Democratic primary race. Which means that with crushed hearts in hand, they're aiming to stand fast and keep big government ideas alive.

It’s been a bad few months for The Beheading Channel. First, falling oil prices and nonexistent ratings made Al Jazeera America too expensive for the Qatar government to keep open. Then, Al Jazeera proper announced it was cutting 500 staff.
Now, the government of Iraq has shut down big Al Jazeera’s bureau in the beleaguered nation, according to Yahoo News.

Former NBC reporter and CNN host Campbell Brown raised some eyebrows with a Politico piece titled “Why I Blame TV for Trump.” Brown cited anonymous quotes from her friends in the media who are depressed over how thoroughly their outlets have handed editorial control over to The Donald. One said, “I am swilling antidepressants trying to figure out what to do with my life when this is over.”

After Hillary Clinton won four of five East Coast primary contests on Tuesday night, the New York Times seems to be trying not so subtly to ease Bernie Sanders out of the race and clear the path for Hillary Clinton to waltz to the Democratic presidential nomination. Besides the front-page report on Hillary turning her sights to the fall campaign, Frank Bruni's column was titled "The Cult of Sore Losers," while Paul Krugman continued his surprising and sarcastic anti-Sanders crusade. "But never mind. As you know, I’m only saying these things because I’m a corporate whore and want a job with Hillary." Bruni still had time to call Ted Cruz "the Don Quixote of extreme conservatism."

Is the catastrophic global warming the media, the United Nations, alarmists scientists and celebrities have been warning about for years all a big “hustle”?
Decide for yourself after watching CFACT’s new documentary film, Climate Hustle, but you’d better act fast. The movie, which is coming to theaters for one night only May 2, 2016, challenges the so-called climate “consensus” and supplies many academic voices underrepresented in the liberal media’s coverage of climate change.

So, Curt Schilling is holding nothing back. Just over a week after he was fired by ESPN for being a conservative, and deigning to observe that male bathrooms were built for people with male parts, while female bathrooms were built for people with female parts, Schilling told the Breitbart News Patriot Forum that ESPN is home to “some of the biggest racists in sports commentating.”

2012’s “War on Women” line of attack by the Democrats and the media appears to be back in full-swing, even before the party has elected its nominee. After Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of using the “woman card,” Clinton shot back, championing her pro-abortion, feminist politics. Instead of talking about more important breaking news, the networks, cable news, and late-night talk shows focused on the feud, defending Clinton. The Daily Show, April 27, was no different, with host Trevor Noah applauding Hillary’s “cute” reaction to “crushing” her GOP opponent’s “sexist” statement.

Admittedly, I’m torn as to whether what happened on Wednesday night’s edition of Blackish constitutes actual bias or just a really bizarre commentary on the self-perception of African-Americans in society.

On Fox News shortly after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's foreign policy speech today, former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton evaluated what the GOP frontrunner had to say about Iran's efforts to develop nuclear weapons.
He also stated the inconvenient truth about the Obama administration's nuclear "deal" with Iran, namely that it puts the jihad-driven, terrorist-funding, death-to-America nation "on a highway to nuclear weapons" — a reality that the Barack Obama-defending press simply won't admit, at least partially because elements of the press, particularly alleged "journalists" at the Associated Press, helped clear the route for that highway:

HULU's new original series The Path has thus far little to write about in regards to crossing conservative boundaries. For the most part they've depicted the members of the fictional religious cult of “Meyerism” as a group of believable, well-intentioned pseudo-Scientologists with real flaws. So even though the topic is ripe for jabs at religion, the show has been uncharacteristically sympathetic to people searching for answers... Until this week.
