In two separate NBC News updates on the Indiana primary, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd gushed over Donald Trump’s “breathtaking” win in the Hoosier State that offered a “knockout blow” to Ted Cruz’s campaign. Holt led off the first update at 8:43 p.m. Eastern and informed viewers that there was “a major development in the race for president...as Donald Trump scores a big win in Indiana, Ted Cruz is suspending his campaign.”

Ted Cruz dropped out the race for president Tuesday night and CNN’s America’s Choice panel could barely believe their ears. After weeks of saying that Donald Trump was inevitable and his opponents should just give up, now they question the decision to drop out at this point. “Would you have dropped out tonight?” Van Jones asked of Paul Begala.

After losing the Indiana primary to Donald Trump Tuesday evening, Ted Cruz announced he was officially suspending his campaign for president. The somber news brought out the worst in the media who have long hated the Texas Senator for his anti-establishment, conservative values. Several journalists took to Twitter to throw in their final punches at Cruz, who, let’s be honest, will probably continue to get beat up by the media even after leaving the race.

Just as the liberal media gleefully did with Marco Rubio, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Nicolle Wallace blasted Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) early Tuesday night for simply standing up to Donald Trump and denouncing his promotion of an unsubstantiated National Enquirer story alleging Cruz’s father Rafael may have been a part of the plot to kill then-President John F. Kennedy in 1963.

“And finally, Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who passed herself off as black, has written a book.  And it contains some surprises.  For example, she now claims to be Asian.” - NewsBusted’s Jody Miller

There’s no love story like a presidential love story -- as long as it’s a liberal president. The Sundance Film Festival feature “Southside With You,” chronicling Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date released a trailer today ahead of its Aug. 19 debut this summer.

The film is the “inspiring true story” of the Obamas as forward-thinking 20-somethings who dream of making a meaningful impact on civil rights. Luckily for the movie, although it foreshadows Barack’s presidency many times, it steers clear of his two terms in office. The depressing reality of that would have been much less romantic than the ideals cherished by the characters.

In a nearly 20-minute live interview with Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell spent a mere 17 seconds asking the Democratic frontrunner about the ongoing e-mail scandal. Toward the end of the 19 minute 11 second exchange during the 12 p.m. ET hour, Mitchell raised the topic as an afterthought: “Now, I’ve got to just ask you whether since you last mentioned this to my colleague, Chuck Todd, in April, have you been contacted – or your representatives contacted – by the FBI to set up an interview?”

ABC's Jimmy Kimmel ranted against climate change skeptics on his late-night program on Monday, and accused them of being lackeys for "companies that make pollution for a living." Kimmel singled out Sarah Palin for her promotion of the recent documentary, Climate Hustle, and bemoaned that the issue was even political: "Climate change is not a liberal versus conservative thing. But the people who profit from ignoring it want you to believe it is....the idea that this is some kind of a left-wing conspiracy is nuts."

In a fantastic piece that it’s highly recommended for news junkies and those interested in the media, National Review senior editor Jonah Goldberg took on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and their infatuation with Donald Trump as “unwatchable” and full of “condescending snootiness” that rivals the cast of Mean Girls

Liberal celebrities Jane Fonda and Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday strove to offer the most fawning Hillary Clinton praise. Is she “amazing,” “exciting,” or “smart?” All of these things. Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Fonda cheered, “It's so exciting that she may very well be our president.”

Buffett executive Charlie Munger ridiculed the prospect of Trump and Cruz nominations during a CNBC appearance, by comparing their campaigns to a hopeless charge made during the Crimean War.

His comments came in response to Squawk Box host Becky Quick’s question on May 3, 2016, about his take on the state of the Republican party.

The establishment press's obsession with labeling anything it and the left don't like as "controversial" has rarely been as obvious as in the case of Tennessee's move to allow full-time university faculty and staff to carry handguns on campus.

One particularly blatant example of "controversial" bias in connection with the Volunteer State law appeared Monday evening at the Washington Post's Grade Point blog. Naturally, the "C-word" appeared in the item's headline:

How Mandela helped Hillary get over Monica and other soap opera tales.

Or as the Washington Post writer, Lisa Bonos put it in her article, how it took a village to help Hillary Clinton move past Bill's infidelity. Namely a village chock full of Hillary's friends, political cronies, and world-wide celebrities and assorted glitterati. Bonos gushes on and on over Hillary's village in a not subtle bid to remind us all to get over it and forget about it in the campaign. So welcome to Hillary's village of enablers as presented by Bonos:

NBC Nightly News is still worried about the evils of capitalism destroying the pristine communist utopia of Cuba. 

“Do you feel you’ve gotten here before it changes?” NBC correspondent Kerry Sanders asked an excited American tourist, camera in hand. “I hope so,” she replied, cheerily. This continues a trend of the media fretting about American influence ruining Cuba, including when rival news network CBS warned that U.S. business could “endanger” Cuba’s “unique charm.”

After 50 days of the network news censoring Hillary Clinton’s stated plan to cripple the coal industry in pursuit of a left-wing climate change agenda, on Tuesday, all three network morning shows finally covered the comments after a laid off West Virginia coal miner confronted the Democratic frontrunner. During an otherwise staged campaign round table discussion on Monday, unemployed coal miner Bo Copley cited Clinton’s comments during a March 13 CNN town hall that “We're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
