Paul Krugman went there in his hackish Monday New York Times column, “Predators in Arms,” arguing that Republican politicians tend to be sexual abusers. The text box: “Is there a partisan pattern here?” Krugman apparently has never heard of Bill Clinton accuser Juanita Broaddrick, or the infamous exploits of “Chappaquiddick” Sen. Ted Kennedy, or Rep. Mel Reynolds, or Rep. Garry Studds. And reporter Maggie Haberman had this weird description of Juanita Broaddrick, who accuses Bill Clinton of rape: "At other times, Mr. Trump retreated to Twitter, where he retweeted posts from an account that says it belongs to a woman who had long ago accused Bill Clinton of rape.”

CBS This Morning’s co-hosts on Monday hailed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a “great legal mind” and offered no ideological label for the very liberal judge. In contrast, while talking about her colleague Antonin Scalia, Charlie Rose made sure to describe him as a “conservative.” Rose hailed, “She has been called the Thurgood Marshall of the women's rights movement. Before she was even a judge, she was writing briefs about gender discrimination and has continued that fight all her life.”

As part of the Monday’s e-mail dump by Wikileaks from Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, The Daily Caller’s Betsy Rothstein found yet another set of e-mails illustrating their cozy relationship with the liberal media as CNBC correspondent and infamously biased debate moderator John Harwood engaged in a variety of flattering conversations with Podesta and other Clinton officials.

The media’s fascination with the Trump-and-Billy-Bush tape keeps adding up. In the first three days of coverage – Friday evening through Monday morning – the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening news programs have aired more than 150 minutes of coverage.
The feeding frenzy over Trump’s crude sex talk dwarfs the media focus on Bill Clinton’s crude sex talk – and actions. On February 11, 1994, Paula Jones appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference to allege that then.-Gov. Bill Clinton sexually harassed her in a hotel room in 1991. In the first three days, that drew....16 seconds.

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.
