CNN's Michaela Pereira and The Daily Beast's John Avlon heralded several clips from Hillary Clinton's past on Tuesday's New Day, and repeatedly touted her as "formidable." Pereira touted the footage as "some of the moments from her very storied career." Avlon hyped that Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, "have been forces for change," and asserted that "the Clintons' story is about self-inflicted scandals and the remarkable resurgences."

During an appearance on Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor Monday night, veteran journalist Bob Woodward had a bleak assessment of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign which he said was clearly in trouble. Woodward explained that “there are lots of unanswered questions, particularly on the e-mail but as I read your book about Reagan, which is a full excavation of his biography and everything in his life, every stage, we need to do that with Hillary Clinton.”

Rush Limbaugh likes to facetiously refer to Hillary Clinton as "the smartest woman in the world." Today's Morning Joe brought us three people who might actually believe it.
Previewing tonight's Dem debate, Mike Barnicle led off the love-in, fantasizing about people coming away from the debate saying "wow, there is a prepared, thorough, knowledgeable candidate. All the Benghazi stuff goes out the window." Next was Joe Scarborough, who said the debate gives Hillary the chance to show voters "she may be the smartest person on the stage and in politics right now." And finally, the incomparable Cokie Roberts, who gushed that any time Hillary is with "actual people" [as opposed to droids?] she "always wows them" adding that Hillary "knows everything about every issue."

We’ve time and again seen the media receive their messaging orders - and then march off all mouthing the Leftist talking point(s) of the day. Washington, D.C.-based talk radio host Chris Plante quotes a military friend of his describing the media not as a gaggle, but as a centipede. Multitudinous legs in coordinated movement - all headed in the same direction.
Talk radio impresario Rush Limbaugh has long made audio cavalcades of this media mal-practice a routine feature of his show. He strings together “media montages” - innumerable examples of “reporters” magically all arriving at the exact same Leftist term(s) to describe the news of the day.

Michelle might want to gently tap the president on the shoulder and remind him "umm, Barack, you're not in the faculty lounge any more. You're actually, uh, President and Commander-in-Chief. So you don't get to criticize your own failed policies as if you're not responsible for them. They're, umm, your policies, you know?"
Commenting on President Obama's 60 Minutes interview in which he said he was "skeptical from the get-go" about his administration's failed policy of training Syrian rebels, WaPo's David Ignatius on today's Morning Joe called the president's reaction "weird," adding "he spoke almost like a man vindicated when a policy of his own administration had collapsed in failure. And he was, he took the line almost of, see, I told you so."

In a humorous and pithy takedown of President Obama for his performance on CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday, Fox News Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt appeared on Monday’s edition of The Kelly File to express his astonishment with how Obama’s reached “the point of utter incredulity, even with people who were once very admiring” like 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft who Stirewalt described as “the sort of number one Obama-nuzzler in the whole stable of Obama-nuzzlers.”

Fox's futuristic new series Minority Report has already whitewashed the "Redskins" from the Washington football team's name. Now we see they've also added President Barack Obama to the 500 dollar bill. In this scene, one of the charcters is offering money to change his identity. The shot lingers on the pile of cash long enough for us to see Obama's face and the point to be made.

On the latest episode of Blindspot, the protagonists find out that every major disease outbreak of the past half-decade has been the result of an intentional security breakdown at the CDC. Ebola, SARS, MRSA, Typhoid fever: they were all delivered directly from a secret CDC lab to infect innocent populations around the world. For once, however, the culprit isn’t some heinous government plot. Instead, the villains of the episode “Bone May Rot” are ardent environmentalists convinced they are saving the planet from the human scourge that has infested it. Mass death now is necessary to offset the evils of “modern medicine” and the plague of “overpopulation,” Dr. Frank Surrey (Paul Fitzgerald) explains.

Following the media frenzy in July over the death of Zimbabwe’s Cecil the Lion, the coverage was decidedly different on Monday evening when ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News failed to inform their viewers of the fact that officials in the authoritarian country would not be pressing charges against American dentist Dr. Walter Palmer for shooting Cecil.

Isn't that sweet: a Politico reporter assures a far-left MSNBC host that when it comes to a major issue, he shares her political viewpoint.
On this evening's Rachel Maddow show, guest host Melissa Harris-Perry happened to mention that she was a "feminist." Hardly had Harris-Perry uttered the words when Jake Sherman, congressional correspondent for Politico, broke in to assure her "me too!"

Pushing every available emotional button, the New York Times and reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg used the anger and grief of two fathers to advocate for gun control with front-page placement in Sunday's edition: "Guns Took His Daughter; Anger Fuels His Crusade." Stolberg never even mentioned the Second Amendment while lamenting Virginia's "hostile" attitude toward gun control, and portrayed gun-rights advocates as potentially dangerous.
