Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton believes we're supposed to be impressed by the idea of putting her husband Bill, in the Associated Press's words, "in charge of revitalizing the economy." Yep, the old "2-for-1" offer from the early 1990s is back.

In 1993, President Bill put First Lady Hill in charge of health care. Fortunately, nothing tangible resulted, but we did get an early lesson in the extremes of Clintonian secrecy and stonewalling. This time, a President Hill would put "First Dude" Bill — as the AP's Lisa Lerer and Catherine Lucey, brazenly stealing Sarah Palin's description of husband Todd while she was Alaska's Governor, prospectively described him on Monday — effectively in charge of the economy. Here's the big problem the press is virtually certain to ignore: Bill Clinton guaranteed in 2012 that the economy under a reelected Barack Obama would not need revitalization by now.

While most people would evaluate a Supreme Court pick by their history as a lawyer and/or judge, ABC and Telemundo evaluated Donald Trump’s SCOTUS picks by the color of their skin. “Donald Trump revealed the names of 11 judges that he’s considering to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court, if he makes it to the White House,” reported Telemundo’s Maria Celeste Wednesday evening, “What stands out is that no Hispanics were included.” ABC’s Tom Llamas expressed a similar concern during World News Tonight

In a rather surprising move, both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC’s Nightly News reported on Hillary and Bill Clinton’s astronomical speaking fees Wednesday. Unfortunately, both dedicated less than 20 seconds to the topic during each of their respective reports.  “A total of almost $1.5 million in just three months,” reported NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, a known Clinton fan.

Major conservative leaders convened at Facebook headquarters Wednesday to discuss the recent scandal of suppressing conservative trending topics. But you would never know it if you were watching ABC’s World News Tonight or NBC Nightly News. Kudos to CBS’s Evening News for not only mentioning the highly anticipated meeting, but giving it a full segment to boot! “Facebook held a summit of conservative leaders today to address allegations that the world’s leading social media website has a tendency to face left,” stated Anthony Mason kicking off their minutes long briefing.

Closing out Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews suggested that Hillary Clinton must pass “a test of leadership” to take the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination and become the next U.S. president that has nothing to do with any number of the scandals she’s involved in but simply whether she can corral Bernie Sanders supporters without capitulating to them.

On Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello hounded Bernie Sanders supporter Charles Chamberlain over the chaos at Nevada's Democratic state convention between the supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Costello accused Sanders's director for delegates of "egging things on in Nevada." She later wondered, "How are these supporters for Bernie Sanders different from the supporters of Donald Trump...they also think that the system is rigged, and they're accused of violence." Meanwhile, the anchor tossed softball questions at a Hillary Clinton supporter.

It’s hard to imagine a network journalist repeatedly grilling Chelsea Clinton over her father’s sexual misconduct and poor treatment of women. But co-host Norah O’Donnell hammered Ivanka Trump on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning. O’Donnell highlighted the New York Times piece investigating Mr. Trump and reminded, “It says many of the women interviewed, quote, ‘reveal unwelcomed romantic advances, unending commentary on the female form, a shrewd reliance on ambitious women, and unsettling workplace conduct.’”

Doing a less than admirable job trying to come off as a Democratic precinct captain, NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers blasted transgender bathroom laws early Wednesday as akin to Jim Crow laws creating white and black bathrooms and suggested that supporters are Disney villains like Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.

Iranian authorities arrested a Christian pastor who converted from Islam for the third time on Friday, May 13. But Americans won’t hear that from the traditional news media.

According to U.K.-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani and his wife, alongside three other church members, were detained late last week after authorities raided their home.

Congenitally unhinged comic Lewis Black is willing to purchase vast stretches of swampland utterly lacking in market value, providing that the salesman is Bill Clinton.

Appearing on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore last night, Black gushed about his boundless admiration for the former president's purported skills in persuasion, a trait with the unfortunate side effect of having long convinced Clinton that he can talk his way out of anything.

One of the duties of the Kentucky Secretary of State is to oversee elections. So shouldn't it seem a bit strange that such a person, Alison Lundergan Grimes, acts in a blatantly unprofessional manner by publicly gloating over the loss of a candidate she opposes by mocking him? Not to MSNBC's Chris Matthews. He not only failed to question this, he happily gushed over Grimes while speculating about the next step in her political career. You can see Grimes' gloat followed by Matthews' gush in the following video.

After Hillary Clinton lost yet another primary contest to Bernie Sanders in Oregon on Tuesday, Wednesday’s network morning shows began sounding the alarm that he could damage her chances in the general election and lamented that the socialist senator was “not going away.” On NBC’s Today, correspondent Kristen Welker declared: “The Democrats are as divided as ever this morning....All of this complicating Clinton's efforts to try to focus on the fight against Donald Trump.”

BuzzFeed, once the go-to place for procrastination with quizzes like “What Kind of Pop-Tart Are You Actually,” is now joining forces with the rest of the liberal media.

On Tuesday, the news outlet tried its hand at teaching America a history lesson on bathrooms. The article, headlined “Gender-Segregated Public Bathrooms Have A Long, Ugly History,” attempted to prove that bathrooms separated by a person’s anatomy are a construct of American policy. According to BuzzFeed News, today’s bathrooms pose a “civil rights battle” not unlike racial segregation. And, of course, social conservatives are to blame.

Though it certainly wasn’t their intention, a segment on Fusion’s America with Jorge Ramos featuring Mexican college students pleading with U.S. voters to reject Trump may actually end up helping the presumptive Republican nominee for President. The segment, coyly titled “Mexican College Students Ask American Voters to Think Twice Before Going to the Polls” starts out innocently enough – praising the example of American democracy and urging people to go out and vote – but then takes a hard left, anti-Trump turn.
