As a further illustration of how far liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has fallen in the minds of his cohorts, I suggest that one look no further than a review in Thursday’s New York Times in which Moore’s latest endeavor Michael Moore in TrumpLand was panned as disappointing with comedy that was “tame and sometimes lame” resulting in a “tepid” final product.

At NewsBusters late Wednesday afternoon, Tim Graham observed that many news outlets, including the Associated Press and most of the nation’s major newspapers, had not yet covered "the Project Veritas videos exposing Democratic operatives talking about voter fraud and inciting violence at Donald Trump rallies."

Graham's explanation: The non-coverage "marginalizes these charges enough that if Donald Trump brought it up" in Wednesday night's debate, many viewers unaware of the games the press plays with news timing wouldn't believe it — because after all, they surely would have seen important news like this reported by now. As if by magic, the Associated Press squeezed in a report on the Veritas videos which could easily have been filed Tuesday evening — and posted it at 8:14 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, 46 minutes before the third presidential debate officially began.

After CBS and ABC ignored the WikiLeaks revelation that top Hillary Clinton staffers exchanged anti-Catholic rhetoric via e-mail and NBC only offered mere seconds to controversy, one would expect a major U.S. Catholic leader denouncing the comments would draw at least some media attention. However, after New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan condemned the “insulting” remarks and demanded an apology from the Democratic nominee’s campaign on Tuesday, the networks have remained silent.

While Fox's Chris Wallace has drawn near-universal praise for moderating the final presidential debate, the Hollywood trade paper Variety carried the contrarian headline: "Final Debate: Wallace Misses." TV critic Sonia Soraiya wrote Wallace’s questions “provided some of the most heartfelt responses from her [Hillary] , such as her articulate, emotional statement of purpose on abortion.”

She complained "Wallace’s questions had the effect of equalizing the two candidates, a journalistic tic that is admirable but unhelpful in 2016. Trump’s mendacious statements going unchallenged did not help anyone except Trump himself."

On MSNBC Live Thursday afternoon, campaign correspondent Katy Tur reported from a Donald Trump rally, when she started arguing with what Trump was saying on stage about WikiLeaks. Anchor Andrea Mitchell urged her to explain how Trump was wrong and stressed that there had been no “collusion” between former CNN analyst turned DNC chair Donna Brazile and Hillary Clinton ahead of a Democratic primary debate.

The New York Times coverage of the final presidential debate was dominated by what it termed “a remarkable statement that seemed to cast doubt on American democracy” -- Trump’s refusal to state he would accept the results of next month’s presidential election, along with a cutting front-page opinion on how Hillary flustered Trump. There was also another ideologically slanted fact-check of the debate.

As U.S. citizens prepare to select the next president, one liberal donor spent more than $103 million on media over the last 14 years to promote his own progressive agenda.

Liberal billionaire George Soros pledged to give at least $25 million to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates and causes, according to Politico. And emails exposed by WikiLeaks showed Clinton staffers  going out of their way to “make Soros happy” before the 2016 campaign even started.

Fox News’s Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night absolutely grilled Donna Brazile over a WikiLeak revelation that she gave a primary debate question in advance to Hillary Clinton. A flustered Brazile seemed to have no response and appeared totally unprepared for handling the issue. This is a question that most mainstream journalists have showed little interest in pursuing.

Appearing on Thursday’s NBC Today, special correspondent Tom Brokaw dismissed Donald Trump’s accusations of liberal media bias: “His complaints have been, apparently, that he thinks there’s a media conspiracy of some kind. The media conspiracy consists of The New York Times printing his tax returns...”

Thursday's CBS This Morning was the first Big Three newscast to notice the latest Project Veritas undercover videos that exposed how Democratic Party operatives worked to disrupt Donald Trump rallies. During a fact check of Wednesday's presidential debate, Nancy Cordes spotlighted how "Democratic contractors were caught on video appearing to plan to provoke Trump supporters." ABC and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the controversy.

During Thursday morning’s debate analysis on ABC, Cokie Roberts explained that the media just doesn’t have time to spend on Clinton’s scandals because they’re too busy covering Trump’s. The longtime political analyst for ABC and NPR admitted that the media “would have otherwise” been talking about Clinton, except that those stories “kept being pushed out of the top of the news” by Trump’s sexual assault accusations and lewd comments on tape.

On Thursday morning, journalists on CBS and CNN were aghast at Donald Trump bluntly and accurately describing Hillary Clinton’s support for partial-birth abortion. Attempting to fact-check the Republican nominee on CBS This Morning, former Face the Nation moderator Bob Schieffer falsely asserted: “ woman carries a child for eight and a half months and then decides she wants to have an abortion.”

Along with their colleagues in much of the rest of the national media, several members of Univision’s news crew have also been guilty of telling outright lies lately, in which they completely dismiss the reality of voter fraud problems in the United States.

Three of the late-night comedy programs went live to react to Wednesday’s final presidential debate and the assembled hosts and guests offered vulgar jokes comparing Donald Trump to a sex toy, phone sex operator, and man who needs breast feeding while dubbing Trump debate guest “Sarah Palin is the HPV of American politics.”

Never one for understatement, ex-Newsweek editor Howard Fineman on Wednesday night accused Donald Trump of having “casual contempt” for 225 years of American democracy. Regarding Trump’s refusal in the final debate to commit to accepting a loss on Election Day, Fineman contended, “It wasn't just what he said that was shocking, it was the way he said it. There was a casual contempt in Donald Trump's voice for 225 years of American political tradition.”
