MSNBC breaking news host and ex-NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams was allowed out on MSNBC’s airwaves early Friday afternoon to discuss President Obama’s visit to Hiroshima and in the course of that, Williams threw some shade in the direction of the U.S. military and then-President Harry Truman by complaining that “we’re the only nation to have used them in anger” against the horrifying Axis Powers member.

The network morning shows on Friday all praised President Obama’s “historic visit” to Hiroshima, Japan – site of the first nuclear bombing – and him using the occasion to push his foreign policy agenda. Leading off NBC’s Today, announced: “Historic visit. President Obama becomes the first sitting U.S. President to travel to Hiroshima, site of the devastating atomic bombing.”

Yahoo certainly seems to have a strange definition of “news.” The website on Thursday placed in its news section an op-ed by a hard-left website. Writer Tom McKay used the most hyperbolic language possible for an article entitled, “Sinister Extremists Are His Dark Legacy From 2016.” He slimed, “2016 came to bury Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, not to praise him. But the evils men do outlive them.”

The panel on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball had plenty to say about Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal in light of the State Department Inspector General (IG) report with Sanders supporter/former Democratic State Senator Nina Turner (Ohio) rebuking Clinton for essentially “jump[ing] off the bridge” with her predecessors into private e-mail even though she shouldn’t have.

It didn’t take long for ABC to go back to ignoring Hillary Clinton’s growing e-mail scandal. A day after all three networks covered a “scathing” new report accusing the Democrat of violating federal rules, Good Morning America on Friday totally avoided the subject. In contrast, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning both stayed on the story. But the two networks couldn’t agree whether Clinton was going on “offense” or staying on “defense.” While GMA reporters couldn’t be bothered to cover the e-mail scandal, the show devoted the entire last half hour to a concert by singer Flo Rida. For those who like to read their news, ABC allowed the Clinton scandal to appear in the crawl at the very bottom of the screen. Quickly appearing (and then disappearing) across the screen are the words: “Hillary Clinton to ABC News about the e-mail controversy: “If I could go back, I would do it differently.”

Not planning on seeing the new Ghostbusters this summer? You must be sexist. When Sony released the first trailer for the new film in early March, it didn’t go over well. In fact, it became the most disliked movie trailer in YouTube history. Ouch.

Those poor, naive folks who have been expecting a mea culpa from Katie Couric for the deceptive insertion into her Under the Gun documentary of a long silence following a question directed at Virginia gun-rights supporters will be disappointed at what has transpired since the controversy arose.

As of Thursday afternoon, no one was genuinely apologizing for anything. Stephanie Soechtig, the film’s producer, employed a tired "I apologize if anyone was offended, but I didn't mean any harm" excuse — garbage which the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, as Tim Graham at NewsBusters noted, should cause anyone using it to lose "their standing as professionals." For her part, Couric issued a statement saying “I support Stephanie’s statement and am very proud of the film.” Early Thursday evening, however, Couric appeared to move into damage-control mode, but in a way that should forever earn her the nickname "Katie Coward."

The New York Times filed some disturbing facts about what happened outside a Trump rally in New Mexico: “Protesters Throw Rocks at Police Horses Outside Trump Rally in Albuquerque.” But the troubling story of left-wing protestor violence against police and property -- a story that would seem to justify the anxieties of Trump supporters -- didn’t make the print edition. Instead, the reporting from New Mexico that actually made it into print was about Trump slamming the state’s Republican governor Susana Martinez, under an ethnically loaded headline: “Trump Takes a Female, Hispanic Governor to Task.”

On Thursday night’s Daily Show, correspondent Michelle Wolf begged Clinton to “be our boss” in a segment devoted to convincing viewers that Clinton’s likeability and email scandal were no big deal. Wolf tried to spin Clinton’s honesty and likeability issues into a positive, asserting that Clinton was what “America needs:” “a no-nonsense, indoor sunglass-wearing boss lady who eats enemies and [bleep] policy!”

Wednesday evening, Bill O Reilly at Fox News sharply criticized the Black Lives Matter movement, assigning it primary blame for the spike in violent urban crime seen throughout the nation since late 2014.

Though his monologue contained one significant exaggeration, his overall take — expressed in layman's terms, that the "Ferguson effect" is real — was spot-on. Leftists, up to and including President Obama, with the full cooperation of a sympathetic establishment press, have denied the linkage between the orchestrated attempt begun in Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014 to embed into the nation's consciousness the false idea that police are on a mission to gun down innocent black youths and the rising crime levels which have since arisen in so many of the nation's cities. O'Reilly also sharply rebuked the press, which has been far too quick to downplay the serious increase in urban crime and to ignore the violent records and actions of BLM and its leaders.

As promised during last week’s episode of ABC's Nashville, gay country star Will Lexington finally got his showdown with the show’s conservative caricature, leading straw-woman: Cynthia Davis. And as you probably guessed, Davis wasn’t portrayed kindly. Instead, the “conservative” talker is portrayed as a bloviating, incompetent homophobe who can’t string a coherent thought together to save her life.

Just in case you missed it, or have been living in some kind of cave where the powers of media are incapable of penetrating, HBO’s Real Sports is neither really real, nor is it even really about sports. On Tuesday night’s episode of Real Sports, the investigative arm of HBO’s leftist sports department took exception with the AR-15 rifle.

On a day that was marked by the Donald Trump campaign breaking the 1237 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination NBC focused on stoking controversy. “Trump opening the door to debate Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of his most dogged Democratic attackers,” reported NBC’s Hallie Jackson on Nightly News Thursday, “Trump's nickname for her, Pocahontas.” And from there it was a Trump slugfest as they piled on him.

Fox News Channel is pretty much the only national broadcast or cable news outlet that's talking about Katie Couric's deceptive editing of silence into a conversation with Virginia gun-rights advocates. (The list of skippers includes NPR newscasts and the PBS NewsHour.)

On Thursday morning, anchor Bill Hemmer said it must be called a distortion, and Mediabuzz host Howard Kurtz thought the trick was indefensible. "You are blowing a hole in the credibility of your work," he insisted.

With numerous polls now showing a virtual tie between presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, the liberal media seems to be getting nervous. ABC’s World News Tonight seemed to show the first signs of this fear Thursday. “Our team also asking Clinton today, what some of her supporters have been asking,” stated host David Muir,After Donald Trump's attacks, is Clinton fighting back hard enough?”
