Debate moderator Lester Holt repeatedly challenged Donald Trump during Monday night’s highly anticipated debate, but refrained from going after Hillary Clinton in the same aggressive manner. Holt also basically ignored the Democrat’s e-mail scandal. It was only brought up because Trump did so.

Following the first 2016 presidential debate on Monday night between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell issued a scathing statement about the debate and moderator/NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.

With the first 2016 presidential debate just minutes away on Monday, the pro-Hillary Clinton panelists on CNN’s Debate Night in America were firing on all cylinders. “It is very, very difficult to become a master of a single policy area,” stated CNN contributor Van Jones, “She is the Michael Jordan of policy in multiple, multiple areas and we almost treat it like it's a bad thing.”

Editor’s Note, 10:33 p.m. Eastern: This post has been updated to include a second reference by Clinton for help from “fact-checkers.” --> On at least two occasions during Monday’s presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee was tangling with Trump on her inability to produce any tangible results on fighting ISIS and foreign interventions when Clinton implored her friends in the liberal media and especially “the fact-checkers” to “get to work” on Trump.

Minutes before the pre-debate instructions commenced on Monday’s first 2016 presidential debate, MSNBC personality Lawrence O’Donnell griped to his cohorts and viewers that rules and time limits make it “actually more burdensome” for the more substantive candidate while the debates showcase “no actual presidential skills” for who would be best for the job.

Just prior to Monday's debate, Chris Matthews used a very odd historical and anatomical analogy while talking about Hillary Clinton. Talking to Mike Pence, the Hardball anchor, essentially, wondered if Donald Trump will have a “kick him in the balls” attitude towards Clinton. Matthews blurted, “Bobby Kennedy back in '60 when his brother was about to debate Nixon in the great debate, he gave him a last-minute piece of advice. He said — I can't say it exactly to what he said — but he said, ‘Kick him in the you know where.’”

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered a vast Hollywood following. Of the top 50 wealthiest celebrities, at least nine have thrown their support behind Clinton, and are using their influence and money to promote her campaign.

In an effort to revive Hillary Clinton's lackluster campaign, the New York Times yesterday published an interesting "oral history" of the first presidential debate in the year 2000 that pitted Vice President Al Gore against Texas Gov. George W. Bush.

Provocatively titled "Debacle: What Al Gore's First Debate Against George W. Bush Can Teach Hillary Clinton," the story includes quotes unlikely to endear Gore senior adviser Bob Shrum to Gore but may endear Shrum to conservatives, if only briefly. This comes only weeks after Shrum's spectacularly premature prediction that the election was over as of Labor Day weekend.

Charlie Hoffmann at the Washington Free Beacon found MSNBC anchor Kate Snow pulling a mental muscle on national television today. She claimed Trump has never been on a debate stage with a female candidate. We know that liberals have a hard time conceding that conservative women count as real women, but facts are facts.  This inaccuracy comes from the people who insist journalists need to be fact checkers in these debates.

Never let it be said that the folks at the Associated Press aren't on top of the news, making sure that readers as well as subscribers who use AP copy in their radio and TV broadcasts learn the most important developments of the day.

That's sarcasm, folks. Friday evening, in a story primarily about the FBI's grant of immunity to longtime Hillary Clinton assistant Cheryl Mills, the AP's Michael Biesecker blandly informed readers — in Paragraph 22 of 25 — that, in regards to her illegal and improperly secured private server, "The new FBI documents (released Friday) also reveal that Clinton occasionally exchanged messages with President Barack Obama, who used a pseudonymous email address." That's it. Nothing unusual here. Now move along.

As the first presidential debate looms, fact-checking Donald Trump has become a New York Times obsession. Jim Rutenberg bewailed the candidate’s falsehoods and urged debate moderators to hit him hard in his Mediator column on Monday, “A Moment of Truth For Debate Moderators.” Meanwhile, James Poniewozik reviews a PBS Frontline biography on the two major candidates and was glad to see that it eschewed “false equivalence” and made Trump look scary.

The episode titled “Would You Buy Your Dad a Hooker?” of Netflix’s Chelsea turned into a team effort between billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban and CNN’s Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash promoting the candidacy of Hillary Clinton for President and dissing Donald Trump.

During an appearance on Monday's edition of the Morning Joe program on the liberal MSNBC cable TV channel, Donna Brazile -- the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee -- behaved in what can best be described as an “animated” manner from swaying in her seat to making a number of expressive gestures. According to an article by Mark Finkelstein of the legalinsurrection.com website, “Brazile has been a fixture for years on talking-head shows” and someone he always thought of “as an affable but relatively reserved soul.”

New on September 26: ABC’s George Stephanopoulos calling on the media to highlight the “dishonesty” of
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, relaying how Hillary Clinton supporters think “voters think she’s dishonest in part because the media hasn't done its job calling out the dishonesty of Donald Trump.”

The same day Hillary Clinton will face off against Donald Trump in the first presidential debate, more than 300 economists blasted Hillary Clinton’s economic agenda in The Hill.
