On Monday, CBS This Morning hounded Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway over the second presidential debate. Norah O'Donnell wondered "what was the point" of spotlighting several of Bill Clinton's sexual abuse accusers just before the debate. Almost an hour earlier, O'Donnell and King, along with Charlie Rose, went much lighter on Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook.

While ABC’s Martha Raddatz repeatedly sparred with Donald Trump and showed “utter contempt” for the Republican nominee during Sunday night’s debate, as the reviews rolled in Monday morning, the liberal media predictably celebrated the moderator’s biased performance.

More than five hundred years ago, Christopher Columbus landed in the New World. But after the liberal media finish with him, he’ll have landed in the dust bin of history. Or so they hope. Increasingly, many on the left have branded Columbus Day as a celebration of colonialism and white supremacy, rather than a commemoration of the European discovery of the Western World. In doing so, some liberal journalists have gone so far as to compare Columbus to a few of the world’s worst dictators, including Saddam Hussein.

While the press almost single-mindedly forced the nation's attention this weekend on things Donald Trump said many years ago, real life in the streets and neighborhoods of America intervened in a very ugly way Saturday afternoon in Palm Springs, California.
Three police officers were shot by a gang member. Two of them have died. The third suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and was expected to leave the hospital Sunday. Once again, the deadly motivation seen in Dallas and Baton Rouge just three months ago, the desire "to shoot police," emerged. With the exception of one local newspaper, the press is failing to report the serious consequences of these hardened attitudes, namely that cop killings are way up this year.

Appearing as a panel member on Monday's New Day, CNN's Jackie Kucinich -- also of the Daily Beast -- tried to brush off accusations that Bill Clinton not only committed sexual assaults against women, but that Hillary Clinton took part in threatening the women to keep them quiet, as the Daily Beast Washington bureau chief suggested that such claims come "straight out of conspiracy theory land." It was not until a couple of minutes later that co-host Alisyn Camerota pushed back slightly, recalling that several women who made sexual assault accusations were in the audience.

Following the second 2016 presidential debate on Sunday night between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald, a diverse array of conservative leaders (including Media Research Center President and Founder Brent Bozell) offered their reactions to the proceedings and the biased performances of debate co-moderators Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz.

An irritated Chuck Todd on Monday chided Donald Trump for highlighting women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual abuse. Talking about Sunday’s debate in which the businessman did a press conference with Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey, among others, the NBC journalist complained, “Only in the, sort of, the mind of some sort of movie writer of a third world democracy or dictatorship would you have a candidate publicly humiliate a former occupant of that office by parading all of these other people around.”

The second presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis on Sunday night was widely seen as a decent performance by Donald Trump, but the New York Times frantically spun away from Trump’s attacks on Hillary Clinton for enabling her husband’s treatment of women. The NYT's Haberman dismissed a press conference of women accusing Bill Clinton of sexual assaults: “If anyone was wondering how ugly tonight is going to get, Trump just answered it." The Times' fact-checking also found Trump's debate claims false by a staggering 13:1 ratio.

Appearing on the Monday edition of Fox Business Network’s Varney & Company, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell blasted Sunday’s presidential debate co-moderators Anderson Cooper for having “consistently challenged” Donald Trump and Martha Raddatz for “show[ing] utter contempt for Donald Trump on a national stage.”

On Monday, the hosts on NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning demanded Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway explain herself for daring to invite Bill Clinton’s sexual assault accusers to Sunday night’s debate. By contrast, Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook got nothing but softballs tossed his way on the same morning shows.

On Monday’s Good Morning America Jon Karl fact-checked the two presidential candidates statements from Sunday night’s debate. In his first fact-check, he analyzed Trump’s comment calling out Clinton for deleting 33,000 e-mails and rated it as “mostly true”, while at the same time trying to defend Clinton’s actions as not as bad ast Trump made them out to be.

The fallout from the Trump’s lewd video continues to impact NBC. CNN’s Brian Stelter reported on Oct. 11, that a source from NBC’s Today said host Billy Bush’s firing is imminent and a matter of “when,” not “if.” Neither Trump nor Bush were forced by the network to leave in 2005 for the explicit conversation. NBC continued to work with Trump for nearly a decade and eventually promoted Bush from Access Hollywood to Today in 2016. But when the video went public, NBC quickly suspended Bush, just as it had cut ties with Trump after controversial comments in July 2015.

As Newsbusters’ Scott Whitlock noted last night, Sunday night’s hostile debate was made even more so by the performance of moderators Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper, who frequently tried to insert themselves into the debate by interrupting and arguing primarily with GOP candidate Donald Trump. During the debate, Martha Raddatz cut off Donald Trump on a number of questions while letting Hillary Clinton go over her time but this isn’t the first time she’s shown her bias as an ABC journalist.

The AP claimed in a Monday "fact check" that "Trump [is] wrong that Assad fights IS." However, this headline put it more bluntly than their write-up, which asserted that the billionaire's claim about the Syrian dictator is "only partially true...Assad considers the Islamic State group to be among numerous "terrorist" groups....Assad does use air power against IS-held areas and his ground forces are engaged in fighting with the extremists." An April 2016 article from AP itself also reported that Syrian troops "captured another town controlled by the Islamic State group....a week after [they] recaptured Palmyra."

In the October 10 edition of Notable Quotables Bloomberg TV host Donny Deutsch proclaims that Hillary Clinton “does not lie” and Keith Olbermann returns from a long absence to denounce Donald Trump as “a fascist who wants to end this democracy.”
Also making a return is incoming CBS Sunday Morning host Jane Pauley who brings her bias to a CBS primetime drama. And over on HBO, host Bill Maher compares Trump’s sons to Uday and Qusay Hussein. The complete issue, with 21 quotes, is posted below (or view the printer-friendly PDF version).
