From the first words out of anchor Scott Pelley on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, one had to know what kind of newscast it’d be. Throughout the newscast’s A-block, every segment involved almost exclusive criticism of the Trump administration on issues ranging from the border to the media to Syrian refugees to trade agreements.

“It's become a chaotic first week for the Trump administration. Late today, the President's press secretary told reporters that Mr. Trump never said that the Mexican government would pay for the wall. Earlier, he announced a 20 percent tax on Mexican goods, and then the White House arranged hasty news conference to knock that down,” Pelley began.
