You wouldn't know it from watching any of the U.S. national Spanish-language evening newscasts, but the Pew Research Center has released a survey that shows that among the country's Hispanic voters, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is currently polling at roughly the same levels Mitt Romney and John McCain did as the party's previous standard-bearers.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was off on vacation last week, so viewers and NewsBusters readers received a reprieve from his liberal commentary and head-scratching utterances like the one he offered on Tuesday when he joked that the “churchy” Republican Governor Mike Pence (Ind.) “is almost horny for the job” as Donald Trump’s vice presidential nominee.

Back in August 2015, Donald Trump drew predictable derision from the left for citing the Bible and his own "The Art of the Deal" as his favorite books.

Don't hold your breath waiting for liberals to react with anything remotely similar to Hillary Clinton making an even loftier claim. Asked during an interview with Vox to cite books on policy that have influenced her, Clinton first named "It Takes a Village," her largely ghost-written tome published in the mid-'90s.

Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life.

Anybody who ever saw the movie The Manchurian Candidate would have quickly thought it rather odd that every soldier captured in Korea with Raymond Shaw gave identical answers when asked to describe him. However, when associates of Hillary used identical answers to describe her, Ezra Klein of Vox seems not to notice anything strange there. Here is Ezra making the observation about those identical (robotic?) descriptions without the least hint of curiosity as to the Manchurian Candidate quality about them:

During a lengthy interview with a reporter from the Adweek magazine and website, Bill O'Reilly of the Fox News Channel discussed several topics, including the fact that he will not attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland July 18-21 because he thinks the event will be “boring.”

When asked why he believes that, the host of the top-rated weeknight news program -- The O'Reilly Factor -- for the past 16 years responded: “Hillary's going to get up there, and she's going to be coronated. Maybe there'll be some Bernie fans, and he'll get his night to speak.” However, he noted "the big story” of both the Republican and Democratic gatherings will be who is selected vice president.

Well, the New York Times didn’t actually call former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani a racist in its lead editorial Tuesday, which it has strongly implied in the past on its news pages. That’s about the best that can be said for “Rudy Giuliani’s Racial Myths,” in which the Times attacks its old enemy as a race-baiter for criticizing Black Lives Matter, which the paper referred to as a “civil-rights movement” on Sunday’s front page. Meanwhile, actual race-baiter Al Sharpton is portrayed in the Times lecturing others on race-baiting.

In the initial moments following the Dallas, Texas interfaith service on Tuesday afternoon to memorialize the slain Dallas police officers, MSNBC hailed President Barack Obama’s very politicized speech as “part sermon, part speech” and one that “[spoke] to our angels” reminiscent of his Charleston, South Carolina address on June 26, 2015.

President Barack Obama was in Dallas Tuesday to speak at the memorial service to the five police officers who were killing in last Thursday’s ambush. All the networks in the “big three” sung the president’s praises. “The president clearly in the role of preacher-in-chief today talking about what a raw moment this is for the country,” stated ABC’s Senior Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas, during ABC’s special coverage.

On Tuesday's CNN Newsroom, Douglas Brinkley predictably gushed over President Obama's speech at a memorial service for the murdered police officers in Dallas, Texas: "I heard echoes of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln. It was elegantly written. It pulled on scripture at the right times." Brinkley also touted the "high caliber" of the address, and likened it to President Reagan's Oval Office address after the Challenger disaster and President Clinton's speech after the Oklahoma City bombing.

Rolling Stone magazine secured an interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and actually waited several question until dipping into predicting an apocalpyse if Hillary Clinton loses the 2016 election.

The magazine asked if we’re living in a “dystopian science fiction novel,” and Maddow dutifully replied she has been “reading a lot about what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor...”

On Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King kept up her staunch defense of the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of the Dallas shooting. After interviewing a family that attended the protest which preceded the sniper attack on police, King proclaimed: “The thing they wanted to stress most is that Black Lives Matter didn't have anything to do with the shooting....the shooter was someone who had nothing to do with the cause and has sort of tainted the movement...”

On Tuesday's New Day, CNN correspondent Jean Casarez filed a report based on Washington Post findings that blacks are disproportionately more likely to be shot and killed by American police officers police relative to their proportion of the population as compared to whites, and hyped the possibility that the numbers could end up worse in 2016 in spite of the fact that a significant portion of suspects shot so far in 2016 have not yet had their race identified.

Her report introduced a segment showcasing a study claiming that the "anti-black disparity" cannot be explained merely by blacks being more likely to commit crimes, as presented by Professor Phillip Atiba Goff of the Center for Policing Equity.

Flaming tap water made for compelling imagery and anti-fracking activists and news media used it to make drilling for natural gas look dangerous. But a new study reported by the Denver Post further undermined such claims.

Rapper Chuck D of the 80s group Public Enemy ranted against the police on CNN's New Day on Tuesday. When Chris Cuomo played up how "you have a lot more diversity in the police force," the guest wildly claimed that "when it comes down to enforcement...people feel like it's still a slave patrol." He also likened the Black Lives Movement to the anti-Vietnam War protests: "People feel is that Black Lives Matter is this violent movement. It's not what it is. It's a movement against the violence....almost like in the '60s, when you had people protesting against Vietnam."

On Tuesday, it was all hands on deck for MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports following the Hillary Clinton rally featuring a Bernie Sanders endorsement with the eponymous host hailing how “we just witnessed a milestone for the Clinton campaign” and MSNBC political reporter Alex Seitz-Wald promoting the Democratic Party’s platform as “the most progressive” one ever with “the energy of the party” of Sanders now married to Clinton.
