Seymour Democracy Now! has done anything it could to attack the new administration and recently that included mudslinging against Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. On March 24, the homepage of the far-left website and TV program featured at least seven anti-Gorsuch stories or columns.

CAP Launches Liberal CPAC

Liberals Nonprofits Envision, Launch a Liberal CPAC By Aly Nielsen Liberal responses to President Donald Trump’s presidency have varied from hand-wringing, to mass protests, to new initiatives.

ProPublica lamented the Trump administration’s “broad assault on regulations” on March 8 and cited the Columbia Law School’s climate law blog which optimistically claimed “Agencies do not simply regulate for the sake of regulation — each regulation is aimed at implementing a specific provision of a statute passed by Congress.” Ten days after his inauguration, President Trump signed an executive order...
