Wednesday on Morning Joe, co-host Mike Brzezinski had a field day attacking Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. While she declared Manafort is “the most negative, kind of harsh person I’ve ever seen” she proceeded with an onslaught of her own negative criticism, referring to him repeatedly as “Lurch.” Even after multiple failed attempts by co-host Joe Scarborough to quell her name-calling, Brzezinski could not be stopped.

In a biting review of Tuesday night’s GOP speeches, film critic Frank Scheck called the convention a “hatefest” and the “world’s largest lynch mob.”
The article, written for The Hollywood Reporter, spared no insult in individually ridiculing Republicans. Scheck’s snobby, smarter-than-thou takes ended up caricaturing him as a typical effete coastal elitist. So maybe the GOP got something right on Tuesday.

On Wednesday's New Day, during a discussion of Chris Christie's speech at the Republican National Convention and audience reaction, CNN panel members used words like "vitriolic" and "pretty ugly" to describe the GOP gathering. Co-anchor Chris Cuomo warned that Republicans are helping Hillary Clinton by "going too far," and also worked in a rationalization of his claim from Tuesday that Clinton did not send classified information by email "in any real way." And there was also some jabbing at "the conservative media" for allegedly spreading misinformation through "repetition."

Seldom will you see such a clear case of advocacy journalism as this: Jorge Ramos pitching comprehensive immigration reform to the father of a young California man murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2008, just three doors down from his home. But this is exactly what Fusion viewers saw last night as part of the Univision affiliate's coverage of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

HBO star Bill Maher is unleashing his usual sleazy insults on Twitter during the Republican convention, and the targets this time are Trump's sons Donald Jr. and Eric, that they "look like the date rapist in every after school special ever."

In Freeform’s (formerly the ABC Family channel) horror drama Dead of Summer, the backstory of the character Drew (Zelda Williams, daughter of the late Robin Williams) is fleshed out and we learn that Drew is a transgender boy who was named Andrea. The story of “Drew” is written into the series so that the show’s creator can promote his pet social cause – a friend is dealing with the issue. So, in true leftist form, we must ALL be made to deal with it.

It's a good thing all those layers of fact-checkers and proofreaders are out there in the establishment press making sure that they don't misinform their readers about the dates and times of impending events.
Oh, wait a minute. Both Cleveland.com, the home website of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and the Associated Press promoted a "Stand Together Against Trump" rally as if it would take place Tuesday afternoon. The problem is that the protest isn't until Thursday. Oops. I guess they were just overanxious.
