Certain atheist groups are fuming about a Christian film that debuts tonight, claiming that the producers wrongly paint its protagonist as a martyr. Yet, THR did a commendable job in setting the issue straight.

Even when the New York Times does run articles (not on the front page) about Democratic scandals, it tried desperately to turn attention to old Republican Party controversies. That was the case with two Friday articles involving possible Democratic vote fraud and electoral disruption.

On Friday morning, Fox host Brit Hume tweeted about the John Podesta emails hacked by WikiLeaks: “I never imagined you could do a puff piece about Podesta's emails, but @washingtonpost has done it.” The Post turned to left-wing Style writer Dan Zak to take a light approach. Above a picture of Podesta, the tease was “In the insider’s inbox: Political zingers, recipes, honey-do lists, and UFOs.” Below was the headline: “Well the truth is out there now.”

Not surprisingly, CNN’s post-Al Smith Dinner analysis did not take kindly to Donald Trump on Thursday night as the assembled crew didn’t object to the crowd booing Trump and applauded Hillary Clinton’s remarks as “self-deprecating,” “singeing,” and “traditional” since she’s so familiar with dinners like this along with the elitist Gridiron Club.

If there’s one admirable thing about Kathy Griffin, it’s this: she doesn’t claim to be tolerant. Thus, when the lewd comedienne released two videos vulgarly attacking Donald Trump, it was simply consistent with her shtick.

After refusing to report on New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan condemning the “offensive” and “patronizing” anti-Catholic rhetoric revealed in leaked e-mails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, on Friday, the hosts of NBC’s Today committed journalistic malpractice by continuing to ignore the controversy during an interview with the Church leader.

Friday’s New York Times continued to dubiously fact-check Donald Trump, this time on abortion, while positioning Hillary Clinton as a pro-choice heroine of women on the front page. Reporter Farah Stockman hailed Hillary as finally emerging as a champion for women under the eye-rolling headline “Clinton Arrives As a Crusader For All Women.” Even the women she slimed in defense of her sleazy husband?

Did NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell ask Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a softball question fed to her by a leading Clinton campaign official Wednesday evening? It sure looks that way.

The concern is utterly reasonable because of Mitchell's track record of running interference for Hillary Clinton's campaign and liberal politicians and causes in general.

In a mind blowing segment Friday morning on ABC, George Stephanopoulos, Jon Karl and Michael Strahan actually tried to rewrite the historic 2000 election and hoped no one would remember how events actually occurred. Using the opportunity to bash Trump’s comments on conceding the election, the panel laughably contrasted Trump’s behavior with the “incredibly gracious” and “patriotic” Al Gore in 2000.

Network newscasts like to catch politicians being hypocritical, at least when they’re Republicans. But ABC and NBC, so far, haven’t show any interest in grainy 2010 video of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lecturing her subordinates on the “special duty” to protect against hacking and vulnerabilities. CBS This Morning, however, did.

As NFL ratings plunge, the press has adamantly avoided placing any blame on player national anthem protests. However, on Bill Simmons’ show Any Given Wednesday, “the Kaepernick thing” was finally mentioned…and quickly shut down. On October 19, host Simmons had on sportscasters Al Michaels and Bob Costas to discuss the fate of the NFL. He began the discussion by citing the recent NFL ratings drop, asking, “Do you remember the ‘what’s wrong with football, is it gonna fall apart, is this it’?”

Carl Bernstein unleashed on Donald Trump on Friday's New Day on CNN, attacking the billionaire presidential candidate as a "neo-fascist...sociopath." Bernstein used his "neo-fascist" label two more times during the segment, and predicted that Trump is "setting himself up as the head...of a real neo-fascist movement and media empire with the people from Breitbart....It's a dangerous thing. We're in a dangerous place."

It isn’t just the news media censoring viewpoints on climate change anymore. According to a WikiLeaks email, the left-wing website Think Progress took responsibility for getting a professor ousted from writing at Nate Silver’s 538 blog. The professor diverged from Think Progress’ climate alarmist views by challenging claims that global warming causes more extreme weather.

On Friday’s Good Morning America, anchor Michael Strahan sat down with fourth graders from an elite private school in New York City “with big voices” who “deserve to be heard,” Strahan said. If there was any indication where this interview was going to go ahead of time, the kids were selected from an elite, cultural school in the heart of New York City whose tuition costs nearly $50,000 dollars a year and whose mission statement reads, it “guides” students “towards social justice.” Sounds like a representative sample from mainstream America.

Since a number of women have gone public with charges that Donald Trump groped or forceably kissed them in past encounters, there has been a pattern of the broadcast networks being more likely to use the words "sexual assault" in referring to Trump's behavior, while using more toned down or vague wording to describe accusations against former President Bill Clinton of behavior that is at least as severe. This double standard has especially recurred several times over the past week on ABC's World News Tonight.

Between them, ABC correspondents Tom Llamas and David Wright have used forms of the words "sexual assault" or "assault" five times across three shows since last Thursday. But, on all five occasions when similar accusations against Clinton were referenced, Llamas avoided the word "assault," using words like "sex scandals," "sexual misconduct," and "accusers."
