YOU’D be forgiven for watching the chaos in Parliament over the past few weeks and throwing up your hands in exasperated despair. But across the Pond, the American liberal elite have been increasingly rubbing their hands together, thrilled at the opportunity to present a thoroughly jaundiced view of Britain via television and newspapers, both low and highbrow.

President Trump says the justice system should stop investigating his administration and go after the real enemy – “Saturday Night Live.”During a series of Sunday morning tweets attacking everyone from his former attorney Michael Cohen to Hillary Clinton, the President slipped in the suggestion that NBC’s long-running comedy skit program should be “tested in courts,” seemingly for its alleged “collusion” with Democratic party operatives.“A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle!

While the world appears to disintegrate around us, there's something increasingly calming about the presence of Anderson Cooper on CNN. The journalist, anchor and author asks the difficult questions while remaining on the most even of keels. Extreme views don't seem to shake him — the man is charisma and professionalism personified.That said, his days are bathed in all of the misery that is the current social and political climate. He has to be informed about all news events going on everywhere in the country and, indeed, the world. How the hell does he remain positive, knowing all that he knows?"I don't really know the answer to that question," Cooper says. "I do love what I do and I like consuming information.

There's just a constant flow of information and it can feel overwhelming."On Saturday, Dec. 1, Cooper will appear at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre with longtime friend and … [Read more...] about Anderson Cooper Says Live Shows Offer a Peep Behind the Curtain
