It’s tax day and the media hype surrounding James Comey’s book continues. But the numbers are in, and the “big interview” with former Clinton administration official George Stephanopoulos pulled in less than half the number of viewers than the 60 Minutes Stormy Daniels interview. Both featured 2 big boobs, but it seems the American people prefer one set over the other.

The media thought they’d scored a coup when it was revealed that Fox News host Sean Hannity was a client of Michael Cohen, one of President Trump’s private attorneys. In a fit of Hannity Tourettes, MSNBC and CNN couldn’t stop talking about it yesterday. The truth, as is often the case, was something different, according to Hannity. Still, the self-righteous brigade in the mainstream media was out in force, hoping to score themselves another scalp.

NBC and MSNBC host Chuck Todd seemed to be advocating for either the firing of Hannity or Fox News preventing him from speaking about the Cohen story. Oddly, there was no such concern for Chuck after he and his wife, a Democratic consultant, hosted a party in his home for Hillary Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri and her husband in 2015.

Starbucks is under fire for racism after an employee in Philadelphia had two black men arrested for hanging out in one of their stores. The liberal company is facing a backlash and protests, and the CEO has met with the men to apologize.

Finally, anytime taxpayer money goes to a cop killer it’s a disgrace, but when that cop killer is a fugitive from justice living in Cuba while occupying a slot on the FBI’s most wanted list, it’s an even bigger disgrace. Radical leftist, cop killer, and hero to progressives Assata Shakur received more than $15,000 from the government of North Carolina after the sale of some land she inherited. The money did not go to the family of her victims, it went to the woman who escaped police custody and has been living in Cuba for decades.
