In the final minutes before Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate, MSNBC journalists did what you would expect from the liberal network: They mocked Sarah Palin. Killing time before Tim Kaine and Mike Pence took the stage, ex-Palin aides Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace regaled their left-wing hosts with behind the scenes stories from the 2008 debate prep. Wallace recounted, “She in rehearsal kept saying, ‘Senator O Biden.’ So she kept botching the name. And she was so nervous.”

Dan Gainor, MRC's vice president for business and culture, analyzed the debate overnight for Foxnews.com. This part really jumped out: The New York Times, openly proclaiming on the front page that journalism demands that Trump be defeated, scrubs its own copy if it sounds too helpful to conservative spin. Times reporters Nick Confessors and Matt Flegenheimer live-blogged the debate, as Gainor reported:
At first they admitted she took sides: “Elaine Quijano, the moderator, helped Mr. Kaine along, opening one question with a recitation of Mr. Trump’s statements.” But that thought was edited out.

As liberal as the panelists are on ABC’s The View, sometimes you will get more balanced news coverage than you will on ABC’s actual news programs. Case in point, Wednesday’s show discussed Bill Clinton’s statement Monday where he blasted Obamacare as “the craziest thing in the world.” Since that comment was made Monday, ABC’s news programs have completely ignored it, not bringing the subject up in any morning or evening news broadcast because it would play negatively for Hillary Clinton.

Analyzing the impact of Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate, on Wednesday’s NBC Today, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd acknowledged that Indiana Governor Mike Pence did well, but assured his liberal media colleagues that Donald Trump’s campaign would lose the post-debate “spin” in the press.

Immediately following last night’s Vice-Presidential Debate, analysts at ABC were eager to downplay Kaine’s constant interruptions and highlight Pence’s “false” claims instead. The next morning’s coverage of the debate on ABC was more of the same, with Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl declaring Pence as “less than factual.” ABC did not bother to call out Kaine even once for any of his false statements. CBS, however, did fact-check both candidates equally.

On October 2, The New York Times published an admittedly “fragmentary” front-page story about Donald Trump’s taxes. Through these pages, the Times reported Trump claimed a $915 million loss, which could – emphasis on the “could” – have allowed Trump to avoid paying federal taxes for “up to 18 years.”
The Times was typically harsh in tone. The tax records “reveal the extraordinary tax benefits the Republican presidential nominee derived from the financial wreckage he left behind” with his financial “mismanagement.” A tax expert declared Trump “has a vast benefit from his destruction” in the early 1990s, like he was Hurricane Donald.

In an article titled Tell Them To Vote (Diles Que Voten), published in a recent edition of El Pregonero, the official Spanish-language newspaper of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., staff writer Miguel Vivanco goes well beyond just paying obligatory lip-service to the illegal immigration cause which he and the ultra-liberal wing of the American “Catholic” world push incessantly.
Live ‘Late Show’ Jokes Pence Is Gay Giving Putin Blowjobs; Conway Won’t ‘Hold Your Hair’ If You PukeBy Curtis Houck | | October 5, 2016 | 2:03 AM EDT
As it did for the first presidential debate, CBS’s Late Show was live again on Tuesday night to comment on the vice presidential debate as host Stephen Colbert denigrated the Bible with a fake verse about Indiana pizza parlors and crudely joking that Republican nominee Mike Pence is gay giving blowjobs to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

DJ Khaled hosted the BET Hip Hop Awards, which were recorded September 17, 2016, and aired on that network Tuesday night. He remarked the show would be about “real lyricists, talking about real issues.” As you might guess, the real issues were all about the election and Black Lives Matter narrative.

Within just minutes of the vice presidential debate’s conclusion Tuesday, CNN’s Debate Night in America panel was quick to slam Governor Mike Pence and praise Senator Tim Kaine’s performance. “Well, there are two sins in communicating with people. There's small sin and there's big sin,” political commentator Van Jones explained, “And what happened was, you saw in real time essentially Pence invent a running mate and he just lied about you know what this guy stood for.” Jones said that Kaine committed the “small sin” of incessantly interrupting Pence.

During the vice presidential debate, feminist media on Twitter begged the candidates to bring up the topic of abortion. But when one finally did, they slammed him for “demonizing women.”

In the moments following Tuesday’s lone 2016 vice presidential debate, ABC and NBC did their best to offer an overarching spin that while Democratic Senator Tim Kaine (Va.) constantly and in many cases rudely interrupted Republican Governor Mike Pence (Ind.) and moderator Elaine Quijano, the debate won’t matter much to final result and Kaine actually won despite his lack of decorum.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Tuesday night shocked his liberal viewers by declaring that the “eloquent,” “excellent” Mike Pence “won” the vice presidential debate over a “desperate” Tim Kaine. The Hardball host did not hold back as he bashed, “Kaine was a little bit, I don't know what the right word is, a little desperate there, jumping in all the time, always trying to get his points. He didn't wait his turn.”

A broken clock is right twice a day and former President Bill Clinton was certainly right Monday when he criticized ObamaCare for hurting working people. “…The people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” he remarked at a campaign rally for his wife. The shocking admission by the liberal president went unreported by ABC Tuesday, while CBS and NBC aided in playing it down that evening.
