For more than a year, the cable-news networks have feasted on Donald Trump, covering him live, day after day, for hours and hours. Republican contenders couldn’t hope to get a fraction of his TV time. Now that Trump’s secured the nomination, is it possible that the networks will “suddenly” lose interest in every Trump speech?

It certainly looked that way when Trump spoke to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention. CNN gave Hillary 19 minutes of live coverage. Trump got zero. They promoted Democrats while he was talking.

The radical leftist collective known as Wikileaks tried to ruin the Democratic convention by posting a trove of Democratic National Committee e-mails that easily proved that party leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her staff shunned neutrality in favor of pushing Hillary Clinton’s nomination.

The media paid some attention to that, especially when Mrs. Schultz was quickly ousted from her job. Guess what else was confirmed which the media largely skipped over? The evidence in the emails that revealed great chumminess and coordination between Democrats and the supposedly “objective” national press.

The Republican convention’s rowdy chants about Hillary Clinton -- “Lock her up!” – have caused liberal journalists to get extremely distressed. In their lead editorial on July 21, The Washington Post fulminated that Team Trump’s “descent from standard red-meat partisanship to unprecedented accusations of criminality displays contempt for the rule of law and a startling disinterest in fact and reason.”

That’s strong brew. It’s too bad for them that it’s completely false. Somehow, the Post writers are acting like they were born yesterday, or slept through the last Republican presidency. They’ve chosen to overlook that their liberal friends in news and entertainment were active participants in an eight-year anti-GOP hatefest.

When FBI director James Comey came before the press to deliver his bizarre proclamation that Hillary Clinton had lied relentlessly about her private e-mail server, but shouldn't be prosecuted because no prosecutor would ever dare take her to court, except prosecutors all over the country rose to say they'd do so immediately, many were shocked and angered. One industry was thoroughly embarrassed: the media-elite "fact checker" websites and projects, from PolitiFact.com to FactCheck.org to the "Fact Checker" column at The Washington Post.

In the wake of the Dallas police murders, Hollywood liberals like Lena Dunham have targeted....action movie posters. On social media, Dunham boosted a crusade to remove the gun from Matt Damon’s hand in New York subway ads for the latest Jason Bourne movie. 
 
Since the Left insists on diverting attention from the cold-blooded murder of Dallas policemen, let’s turn instead to this other piece of Texas news that will put gun-hating, Planned Parenthood-boosting feminists like Dunham in their proper perspective.

When white racist Dylann Roof shot and killed nine people in a black church in Charleston, it was very easy for President Obama and his media enablers to paint with a broad brush and blame the broader political culture. Bill Maher even blamed Fox News and the Daily Caller and the Drudge Report.

But when black racist Micah Johnson gunned down five cops and wounded seven others in Dallas, suddenly the motivation was complicated, and couldn't be blamed on a "climate" of hostile rhetoric.

It didn't used to be — that's a phrase we use a lot these days, isn't it? — but the Fourth of July festivities bring out the angriest guff from the left. In 1991 Boston Globe arts critic (and aspiring poet) Patricia Smith decided to refashion the national anthem in the leftist rag The Nation.

It's a paradox. The liberal media champion themselves as the most open-minded people on planet Earth, with a devotion to the freedom of speech. How can intelligent people be so wrong? In reality, liberal elites have a nasty tendency to dismiss “conservative thought” as an oxymoron. They don’t read conservative books or magazines, and they wouldn’t lower themselves to watching conservatives on television. They have disdain for conservative talk radio. They're virtually illiterate on conservatives and conservatism.

There are those boorish moments when the celebrity takes to the podium of an awards show to deliver leftist political drivel. We can’t decide which is worse: the predictable, America-hating garbage, or the journalistic hosannas that inevitably follow.
      
The other day, Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams launched into a “Black Lives Matter” sermon at the BET Awards when he won an award for his “humanitarian” work. Accepting the honors, Williams broke out the radical-leftist claptrap about this “invention” of abusive whiteness, exploiting all the creative blackness.

CNN's Reliable Sources offered a panel discussion on June 26 asking if Americans are so apathetic to the truth that our politics have entered a "post-fact check phase." This is a reference to Donald Trump, of course. The media believe he's a liar and gets away with it because of public apathy. What these journalists will never concede, however, is that Democrats get away with dishonesty because of their own apathy. Hillary Clinton's obscene lie about landing in sniper fire in Bosnia is a distant memory.

After weeks of indecision, ABC decided on May 12 it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom The Real O'Neals, loosely based on the childhood of vehement gay sex columnist Dan Savage. But then Noah Galvin, a 22-year-old gay actor playing the fictional version of Savage, gave an interview to New York magazine's Vulture blog that was so rude that The Hollywood Reporter said ABC was reconsidering its options, like reducing the number of episodes ordered for Season 2.

An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," said a source to The Hollywood Reporter. One show source added: "He caused a grade-A s--t show. ABC screamed at him all afternoon."

In the wake of the Trump wrecking crane, President Obama’s approval ratings have risen above 50 percent. The media see greater appreciation for his “competence” in office – but why? In the wake of the Orlando attack, it’s easy to ask “How competent would the media make President Bush appear if an Islamic terrorist shot up a gay nightclub in Florida eight years ago?”

It seemed like every piece of bad news in the Bush years was somehow Bush’s fault, and proof of his incompetence. But absolutely no one in the media wonders for two seconds if Obama looks incompetent when a terrorist calls the cops to declare himself an ally of ISIS and shoots more than 100 people, killing 49.

The mass shooting in Orlando really infuriated liberals all over again about the lack of gun control -- including liberal journalists and comedians. "NBC Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt blandly promoted how "late-night hosts have once again found themselves straddling the lines between comedians and consolers."  

But they weren't consolers. They were agitators for the liberal agenda. On "The Daily Show," host Trevor Noah sympathized with Obama: "He's hosted 12 state dinners, but he's had to give 16 mass shooting addresses." And none of those apparently ever reflected badly on Obama's leadership on terrorism?

The Washington Post defined the old term “high dudgeon” when Donald Trump took away its press credentials for being “dishonest and phony.”

The Post triggered this with a loaded headline: “Donald Trump suggests President Obama was involved with Orlando shooting.” This could be believable stuff, since Trump had bizarrely suggested Ted Cruz’s father might have been connected to the JFK assassination. But this time it was the Post inventing stories.

The new movie Me Before You looks to be an inspirational love story. A lower-class woman in England is hired to take care of a young man who recently became a quadroplegic after being hit by a car.  He inspires her to live a fuller life; she inspires him to find the joys he can still realize from his wheelchair.

That’s the commercial, but that’s not the actual plot. Spoiler alert: this isn’t a love story, it’s a story of a man’s self-love leading to assisted suicide.

The most obvious sign of liberal media favoritism is that liberal candidates can avoid press conferences for months at a time and they don’t complain. On CNN, David Gregory argued Hillary Clinton would just "take the hit" for avoiding them, and avoiding tough questions about her private email server and the Clinton Foundation.

But when Hillary briefly met the press on Monday, it was eight softballs, nothing on scandals, nothing on policy, just horse-race questions and gush about her "historic" race.

The NFL has a serious PR problem with concussions. NFL star Junior Seau committed suicide in 2012 to underline the issue. Count on flower children at NPR to go over the edge with this issue. The problem isn't the size and strength, and therefore power of professional football players. No, it's -- ready? -- the evil game of football itself.

This is your taxpayer-funded broadcasting in action: Planned Parenthood selling dead baby parts is just a "women's health" group aiding "medical research," but the NFL is organized savagery.

Donald Trump held a press conference on Tuesday to address (and insult) news reporters trying to locate the proceeds for a January fundraising event for veterans Trump held -- during a Republican debate on Fox News he refused to attend. The press called the insults a "tirade."

The media were right to ask questions about Trump's distribution of funds to veterans groups. But hold the righteous indignation, folks. This is a press corps that has absolutely refused to hold Obama accountable for anything (think: IRS, VA , Solyndra, Fast and Furious and so many other scandals) while also refusing to investigate any clouds swirling around Hillary Clinton.

Dana Milbank and Ruth Marcus are both Yale-educated reporters-turned-columnists at The Washington Post. They view the world through the same lens. This sometimes means they can write pretty much the same column. It also means they both have a huge blind spot when it comes to sympathizing with Hillary Clinton.

Last Sunday, both columnists wrote about the damaging report from the State Department’s Inspector General, which concluded  that putting her State Department email on a private server was authorized by no one but the self-appointed queen herself. But these two columnists concluded she was only guilty of a self-inflicted wound on her campaign.

Pardon us if you’ve heard this routine one too many times.  Barbara Hollingsworth at CNSNews.com reported the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Virginia Beach, Virginia is currently using government money to exhibit a painting that yet again projects anti-Catholic bigotry. They cannot stop hating Christianity (and Christians) and the federal government can't stop funding that hatred.
