In her latest attempt on Thursday afternoon to dodge questions from her press corps in extending her streak of days without a press conference to 264 days, Hillary Clinton tried some chocolate from a local store after blasting Donald Trump and the despicable alt-right movement and implored the employees to feed the assembled press because they’re “so wonderful, so cooperative, [and] so hardworking.”

In one of the latest developments regarding the Associated Press article that claims more than half of the people who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money to the Clinton Foundation, the Democratic presidential candidate's campaign has called on the AP to change the tweet promoting the article.
The initial posting reads: “BREAKING: AP analysis: More than half those who met Clinton as Cabinet secretary gave money to Clinton Foundation,” and Brian Fallon, press secretary for the Clinton campaign, stated: “We have formally requested that AP remove or amend this tweet.”

The Hulu original Difficult People, starring Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner, got political in episode 7 of the second season. The pair concoct a plan to make a historical musical like the Broadway smash “Hamilton,” name it “Carter,” and yet somehow manage to find a way to bash President Ronald Reagan.
NY Times Celebrates Sex-Toy Anti-Gun Protest at Univ. of Texas; Hated Conservative Protests at Texas A&MBy Clay Waters | | August 25, 2016 | 4:28 PM EDT
Self-impressed with its own cultivated “weirdness,” the college town of Austin, Texas, is a blue redoubt in a red state, so it’s no surprise that some students vulgarly protested the state’s concealed-carry law, which now allows concealed handguns to be carried on campus. New York Times reporter Dave Philipps couldn’t get enough of it, celebrating the protest in Thursday’s edition: “Texas Students Wield Absurdity as a Weapon." It makes quite a change from the horrified reaction the Times has when conservative Texas A&M students mount protests.

Early in August it was revealed that the U.S. secretly airlifted $400 million dollars to Iran on the same day that it released four of its U.S. hostages, back in January. As soon as the highly-suspicious details came out, conservatives noted the exchange certainly looked like a ransom payment. Donald Trump thought the same thing and called it that at a rally on August 21. For that obvious analysis, Politifact, the liberal fact-checker which conveniently ignores liberal lies, yesterday rated this statement as “mostly false.”

The panic on the faces of Clinton Foundation defenders grew more palpable on Wednesday night as the questions surrounding donors having meetings with Hillary Clinton’s State Department remained a part of the news cycle, so it was up to liberal journalists like Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews to defend and deflect these concerns as merely “political” ploys by Republicans.

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway on Tuesday nailed exactly what’s wrong with a profanity-laced exchange between a Republican congressional candidate and a smug Politico journalist. Writer Marc Caputo has been praised for releasing on YouTube his phone conversation with the GOP’s Dan Bongino.

After all three network morning shows promoted the Clinton campaign’s attempt to discredit criticism of the Clinton Foundation on Wednesday, on Thursday, both NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning kept providing the Democratic nominee with a megaphone to defend the family charity and dismiss accusations of corruption.

The networks on Thursday erupted as Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a “bigot.” But these journalists didn’t appear outraged as the Democrat called out the businessman’s “hate.” On CBS This Morning, Norah O’Donnell trumpeted, “Donald Trump is taking name calling new a new level. He called Hillary Clinton a bigot last night in Jackson, Mississippi.”

If these "Stuff Jorge Ramos Says" posts seem repetitive, it is because it is unprecedented for a national news anchor to go on the record with his opinions of a presidential candidate (published on multinational platforms), because the establishment media has aided and abetted this break with longstanding tradition, and because it is important to create preserve -consistent with the mission of the MRC - a record of these statements of bias.

It’s back to school time, so here’s your new vocab word from the PC lexicon: “chestfeeding.”
What? You’ve never even heard of it? Well, Cosmo’s Kathryn Lindsay is willing to give you a pass. “If it's new to you,” she wrote in an August 24 article, “that's understandable — it's not something typically talked about in mainstream pregnancy circles.”

It’s no secret that liberal billionaire George Soros is one of Planned Parenthood’s biggest donors. Now leaked documents show that the horrific videos uncovering the abortion mill’s baby parts trade only encouraged his foundation to give more.

Early Wednesday morning, Nicholas Fondacaro at NewsBusters noted how the NBC Nightly News spent Tuesday evening defending Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation in the wake of an Associated Press report showing that "At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs." Wednesday evening, Fondacaro observed that Wednesday's Nightly News "failed to mention the scandal at all." Contrary to usual past form, the broadcast network's Nightly News treatment seems to be running far to the left of its weak cable sister MSNBC in the name of keeping damning information about Mrs. Clinton's activities away from low-information voters.

Back in 2008 the “Big Three” demanded to know all they could about Republican nominee John McCain’s health, but now it’s Hillary Clinton’s health that’s in the spotlight and the networks want little to do with it. The networks are treating talk of Clinton’s health as like more than a nuisance, with CBS declaring it, “A Trump lie about her health,” and ABC saying it’s something she can “laugh off” on a late night comedy show. This was not the standard when McCain ran in 2008, far from it in fact.

NBC seems to of have enough of the political scandal which involved an apparent pay-for-play scheme between the Clinton Foundation and the Hillary Clinton’s State Department. During Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News the network failed to mention the scandal at all, even though competitor CBS found new connections. “Of the 15 fundraisers Clinton has held over the last week, more than half have been hosted by donors who have also given to the foundation," reported Juliana Goldman on CBS Evening News.
