Tuesday was the second night in a row where Republican convention speakers launched strong criticism of Hillary Clinton, which the Hillary-boosting media cannot stand. Anything that's negative is cast as hyper-negative. The quote of the day came from MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who wildly re-imagined Chris Christie's speech on her terrible foreign policy mistakes as some kind of gladiator movie where the crowd would root for Mrs. Clinton to be eaten by lions or something.

Wednesday on Morning Joe, co-host Mike Brzezinski had a field day attacking Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. While she declared Manafort is “the most negative, kind of harsh person I’ve ever seen” she proceeded with an onslaught of her own negative criticism, referring to him repeatedly as “Lurch.” Even after multiple failed attempts by co-host Joe Scarborough to quell her name-calling, Brzezinski could not be stopped.

In a biting review of Tuesday night’s GOP speeches, film critic Frank Scheck called the convention a “hatefest” and the “world’s largest lynch mob.”
The article, written for The Hollywood Reporter, spared no insult in individually ridiculing Republicans. Scheck’s snobby, smarter-than-thou takes ended up caricaturing him as a typical effete coastal elitist. So maybe the GOP got something right on Tuesday.

On Wednesday's New Day, during a discussion of Chris Christie's speech at the Republican National Convention and audience reaction, CNN panel members used words like "vitriolic" and "pretty ugly" to describe the GOP gathering. Co-anchor Chris Cuomo warned that Republicans are helping Hillary Clinton by "going too far," and also worked in a rationalization of his claim from Tuesday that Clinton did not send classified information by email "in any real way." And there was also some jabbing at "the conservative media" for allegedly spreading misinformation through "repetition."
