In his "Fourth Watch" media newsletter, former CNN producer Steve Krakauer interviewed former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush in email. He asked "as you look out across the landscape right now, and where things stand in 2020… what do you think is missing? What would you like to see more of?" Bush had a spicy answer, knocking his former bosses at NBC: "the network that despises him most is the one that built him in their laboratory."
After what began as a fairly non-political conversation on Friday's Real Time, things changed with left-wing comedian and vulgar artist Jim Carrey and host Bill Maher another Carrey painting with this one depicting President Trump as “the Wicked Witch of the West Wing.” After he held it up, Maher proclaimed “I love it.”

MSNBC's Brian Williams was joined by author and professor Timothy Snyder on Friday night where Williams used his guest's 2017 book On Tyranny to argue that the United States under President Trump is slipping into authoritarianism. The proof? Trump-named towers, military parades and federal law enforcement in Portland.
In a segment sponsored by an anti-Trump political ad from Americans for Limited Government, ABC’s This Week spent a portion of Sunday’s show swooning for the anti-Trump/pro-Biden political group The Lincoln Project.

On the July 31 Real Time with Bill Maher, former New York Times op-ed editor Bari Weiss described her fear of how our nation's so-called paper of record has now seemingly banned the opinions of half of America from its editorial pages.
On Thursday, Kevin Williamson at National Review described how "NPR Remains Journalistically Incompetent." His target was Morning Edition anchor David Greene: "If you would like an example of how it is that our political discourse gets dumber by the day, tune in to NPR."
You can spell hypocrite "P-O-P-O-V-I-C-H." After all his mouthing off about systemic racism, San Antonio Spurs' Head Coach Greg Popovich refused to kneel Friday with his team during the national anthem.
Media praise of former President Obama's eulogy at John Lewis' funeral continued on Friday's CNN Newsroom as senior political analyst David Gergen contrasted the upcoming election as between Obama's purported pro-American elegance with Trump's alleged "dystopian" view of the world.
The Washington Post had, understandably and correctly, considerable coverage of the death and funeral ceremonies for civil rights hero and Congressman John Lewis.
Fox News continued to dominate its liberal competitors in July as viewers delivered it another ratings victory over CNN and MSNBC. The cable channel, for the 49th month in a row, won both total day and prime time viewers -- achieving its highest-rated July ever.
The death of civil rights leader and Congressman John Lewis (D-Georgia) has drawn outsized media attention -- on the level of the death of a president. I'd bet the death of President Gerald Ford over the holidays in 2006 drew less media attention than Lewis has received. CBS surely didn't devote primetime specials called "Celebrating a Hero" to Republican presidents.

I sure don’t, but apparently that is fair game for Barack Obama. MSNBC's Morning Joe touted a variety of clips Friday morning of the former president exploiting what was supposed to be a funeral for Congressman John Lewis, using his "eulogy" to the Democratic lawmaker to campaign against President Trump.
After former President Obama gave a partisan eulogy at John Lewis' funeral on Thursday where he compared President Trump and federal law enforcement to George Wallace and called for the end of the filibuster, among other things, the Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart praised him for telling Americans what they can do to honor Lewis and the country.
On Monday's Amanpour & Co. on PBS and CNN International, host Christiane Amanpour gave former California Democratic Governor Jerry Brown an unchallenged forum to bash President Donald Trump over sending federal agents to quell rioting in Portland, and even cued him up to fearmonger that the President is "authoritarian."
