Liberals made a big deal out of the report that Fox News has dropped its old slogan "Fair and Balanced." The liberal media always made a mockery out of it, rejecting it as "false balance." It's "false balance" because the conservative view is false. From their arrogant viewpoint, only the "truth" is worth reporting.

Outgoing "CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley proclaimed, "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress yesterday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted." Wrong. It was time for Pelley to evacuate the anchor chair.

For years, if an act of violence could be blamed on a Republican or, even better, on a conservative, the press would do it, even if they needed to play a Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon-style game.

Liberal media outlets like The New York Times have a political objective driving their coverage: Ruin President Trump.

In the wake of Kathy Griffin holding up a mock severed head of President Trump, it's disturbingly obvious that murderous thoughts about our leaders are now considered by the left to be light, humorous fare, a balm for their anxieties.

CNN cannot plausibly keep Reza Aslan on the payroll and say it's "the one nonpartisan cable news network," or a haven for civilized discourse.

How could Kathy Griffin think she didn't cross a line with her Islamic State group-beheads-the-president imitation? In a sense, her ignorance is understandable. Since Donald Trump was elected, anything and everything has been acceptable.

President Trump is back from his first foreign trip, and CBS "welcomed" him back by suggesting again that he can't possibly win a long fight with the media.

Sycophantic press profiles of Franken express admiration for the "former comedian" as if the satire stopped.

In this preposterous telling of the story, Lewinsky was the innocent young woman tied to the train tracks by the nefarious forces at Fox News. Forget her complete lack of judgment. Forget her moral turpitude. Forget Bill Clinton, too. Blame Fox.

The commitment to wholesome values is perhaps the emptiest statement in Hollywood.

In the current hothouse environment, with liberal media that define Trump as the antonym of democracy, the public should be wary of anonymous sources. This is especially true today.

Dystopian entertainment is all the rage now that Donald Trump is president, and the more unglued it sounds about an approaching American totalitarian state, the better.

No one in the "objective" press displayed much interest in correcting Barack Obama's self-serving legend.

TV comedy cannot be too harsh when directed at President Donald Trump. There are no limits, and CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert has proven it.

When former President Barack Obama bowed to dictators in Cuba and Iran, it was "historic" diplomacy. When President Donald Trump talks up meeting with autocrats, that's another dangerous and disgusting sign of his lack of respect for human rights.

The opening act of Donald Trump's agenda in the White House contains a real whiff of President Ronald Reagan. To be sure, there's plenty the Reaganites won't like — talk of trillion-dollar federal building campaigns, taxing business at the border, etc. — but there's plenty to applaud as well.

The time has come for the media to pull out the artificial measuring stick of 100 days to evaluate President Trump. If they're kind, he'll get an I for "incomplete." But it's more likely they'll use other I words like "inability," "incompetence" or "incoherence."

Bill Clinton is laughing.
