January 20th, 2017 8:44 AM
On the morning of Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009, ABC’s Good Morning America team called it, “A new dawn...fueled by hope and the shared dreams of a renewed America.” But on the morning of Donald Trump’s inauguration, ABC didn’t have the same rosy outlook.

Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, HBO liberal talkshow host Bill Maher came on the show to bash conservatives and call on the media to hold Trump accountable.

When Trump fired back on Twitter, the media blew a fuse at…
Behar Baits Biden to Bash Trump on 'The View'
January 13th, 2017 1:53 PM
Friday’s special guest on ABC’s The View was Vice President Joe Biden. Like ABC does with every Democrat guest, instead of asking critical questions, the panel split half their commentary into praising Biden and the other half into baiting him to slam Republicans.

Whoopi: Liberals Are Treated Worse Than Conservatives In Hollywood
January 9th, 2017 2:22 PM
After Meryl Streep’s scathing speech condemning President-elect Donald Trump Sunday night, liberals came out in full force to defend the actress and left-wing activist’s “brave” move preaching to the choir. On ABC’s The View Monday morning, actress and host Whoopi Goldberg unsurprisingly came to Streep’s defense as well. While doing so, Goldberg made some absurd claims about which type of…

January 5th, 2017 12:28 PM
After a horrific Facebook Live video yesterday showed four black youths torturing a young white disabled man while shouting anti-white and anti-Trump epithets, the media have been slow to report on the story at all.
