This was a strange week in the world of  Media, the Russians invaded Ukraine after promising the United States president that he wouldn’t. Kind of makes one remember when the media blasted Mitt Romney for warning about the Russians in 2012, or even when they beat up on Sarah Palin for warning about the Russians in 2008.

But not everything that happened this week was retro. This week Harry Reid said anyone who  claims to be hurt by Obamacare is lying, and we caught one of the many moms who demanded an apology. Speaking of Obamacare, this week we learned that a convicted terrorist was hired to be an Obamacare navigator.

This week Think Progress lied about austerity, Andrea Mitchell lied about gun control, and President Obama lied about the Obamacare signups. This week  we got to see a video of Supreme Court proceedings for the first time ever, and we saw Sean Hannity beat up on Democratic Party congressional candidate.  We saw the global warming hoaxers try and beat up Charles Krauthammer and we learned the head of the flat earth society is a believer in global warming.

Below are the best stupid media bias and tricky political lying tricks,
and interesting pundit observations from the last seven days.
