While touting the usage of cell phones in 21st century journalism on the Tuesday edition Fusion’s America, host and liberal Univision anchor Jorge Ramos played clips of his cell phone video reports from New Hampshire that included numerous encounters trolling Trump supporters who were merely standing outside polling places to support the billionaire.

The “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC offered periodic updates on Tuesday night concerning the New Hampshire primary results and hailed them in the 10:00 p.m. Eastern hour as symbolizing “an earth-shaking night in politics” with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders notching a win in his ongoing “crusade” with some “brutal coverage” ahead for Hillary Clinton.

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and Brian Williams on Tuesday hailed John Kasich’s second place finish in New Hampshire as evidence that the “grown-ups” and “adults” in the Republican Party had been victorious. Presumably citing Joe Scarborough, Brian Williams touted, “My friend Joe in New Jersey says he's always been the only grownup in the race.”

Just over a year ago, actress-liberal activist Ashley Judd opined that Hillary Clinton “might be the most overqualified candidate we've had since…Thomas Jefferson or George Washington.” Pierce was a bit more restrained in a Sunday post, asserting that Hillary “might be the most qualified presidential candidate that we've seen since James Monroe,” who was first elected POTUS two hundred years ago this coming fall.

Pierce lamented that Hillary’s chops as a campaigner don’t measure up to her credentials for the highest office: “She's an outsider by birth and an insider by resume. It would take a formidable politician to be able to use both of those qualities to maximum advantage. (If she combined her background with her husband's natural political skillz, we'd likely wake up next November to find her Empress Of The Universe.)  And she is not that pol. Not yet, anyway.”

On the same night Rachel Maddow dismissed the concept of the liberal media, the MSNBC host sneered that the Republican Party could turn into a “xenophobic” movement of the “hard-right.” Maddow flashed back to the 1996 presidential election and contrasted 2016: “Pitchfork populism and xenophobic nativism of a very, very hard-right cast and [Pat Buchanan] won in New Hampshire.”

After having been up most of the day, the long day for MSNBC’s Chris Matthews dragged on into the 11:00 p.m. Eastern hour as the Hardball host argued that Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is “growing in political ability and reach” with his New Hampshire victory and could court “the Democratic center right now” as well as “center right” Democrats (as if there‘s any of them left).

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Tuesday denied the existence of a vast liberal media as she anchored live coverage of the New Hampshire primary results. Just after socialist Bernie Sanders declared victory, Maddow seriously insisted, “People talk about the liberal media and they say the whole media is liberal and the whole establishment is liberal, it's not true.”

At the start of the Democratic presidential race, the media viewed the contest as a cakewalk. The compassionate and gloriously wonky Hillary Clinton faced no one who could be viewed as her equal. Game over. When Sen. Bernie Sanders made noises about running against her, nobody thought he could be the actual Democratic nominee. He was old, he was cranky, and he wasn’t even a Democrat.  

Now Sanders is succeeding by running a campaign based on the concept of American exceptionalism in reverse. America is exceptional only in her pathetic failure to enact every socialist “reform” that Scandinavian countries have ever implemented.

As the voting results started streaming in tonight, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, Mika Brzezinski, and Joe Scarborough all gushed over Donald Trump's evolution in tone on the campaign trail since Iowa. Brzezinski, for example, hailed the New York real-estate developer as "more learned" and exuding less "bravado."

Commenting on Hillary Clinton’s concession speech to Bernie Sanders Tuesday night as the New Hampshire primary results came in, CNN panelists Van Jones and former Democratic Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter ruled that Clinton was “learning,” “listening” and putting out a “very important” “message” despite her loss and narrow Iowa win.

It’s not just pro-lifers who are stunned and alarmed by the fact that two undercover journalists – David Daleiden – director of Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and Sandra Merritt, a CMP employee – found themselves indicted by a Texas grand jury for violations of the law allegedly committed in the course of exposing an abortion clinic’s selling of aborted baby parts.

Esquire columnist and frequent MSNBC guest Charles Pierce on Monday assailed Marco Rubio for attacking Barack Obama. Regarding the Republican’s assertion that Obama isn’t incompetent, but is intentionally changing America, Pierce raged, “He's saying Barack Obama is undermining the Constitution. That's an impeachable offense. You don't say that about a sitting president!”

Speaking to CNN's Brianna Keilar at a campaign rally for Bernie Sanders, actress and Sports Illustrated model Emily Ratajkowski -- best known for her appearance in Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines video -- bizarrely suggested that Hillary Clinton's politics are too "extreme" to the "right" for her as she explained why she supports Sanders. Ratajkowski: "I think that my initial response to Hillary was a positive one, but, you know, depending on your politics, if you don't agree with some of the things that, you know, I think are pretty extreme and very, very, you know, to the right of where I'd like to see the party headed. It's really that simple to me."

In dual network special reports at the top of the 8:00 p.m. Eastern hour, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and NBC’s Chuck Todd expressed their amazement at the “political earthquake” by the New Hampshire primary victories from Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump that will serve as “a shot across the bow at both political parties” despite the polls long predicting this very result.

During live coverage of the New Hampshire election returns, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews bizarrely asserted that socialist Bernie Sanders comes across as “non-ideological.” The Hardball host blurted, “Bernie is so much better in the room with 200 people than on TV. He's too effusive on TV. He’s too hot. But in the room, he's logical and non-ideological.”
