In one of the latest batches of Hillary Clinton campaign e-mails released by WikiLeaks on Monday, communications director Jennifer Palmieri can be seen complaining to fellow staffers about a supposedly “outrageous” interview NBC conducted with Bill Clinton about the Clinton Foundation in 2015. In reality, it was a friendly exchange that touted “heartwarming stories” about the organization’s charity work in Africa.

In a discussion of modern electoral fraud, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Monday offered a journalistic slip: She admitted that the 1960 presidential election was “obviously” “stolen” from Richard Nixon. Talking about a “constitutional crisis” if Donald Trump does not concede the presidential election, Mitchell blurted, “How have we come to this point? Some of the better moments in American history, the peaceful transfer of power.”

The liberal Center for Public Integrity posted a study Monday under the provocative headline "Journalists shower Hillary Clinton with campaign cash."

In all, people the Center identified in federal campaign finance reports "as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism" combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Clinton and Trump. Nearly all of that money — more than 96 percent — has benefited Clinton.

There are plenty of Planned Parenthood mentions in the latest WikiLeaks release, but the liberal media aren’t talking about it.

Providing an example of how vocal reporters are on Twitter than in their natural habitats (e.g. on-screen or in print), Politico’s senior White House correspondent Edward-Isaac Dovere lashed out at Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner on Monday for assisting Trump in “look[ing] into a new TV network that would cater in part to Nazis” despite having Holocaust survivors for grandparents.

While acknowledging that Hillary Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speeches revealed by WikiLeaks could have cost the Democratic candidate her party’s nomination if uncovered during the primary campaign, on Monday’s NBC Today, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd actually spun the news as an advantage for Clinton in the general election.

The front of Monday’s New York Times continued the paper’s relentless and one-sided assault on Donald Trump’s campaign. First up, “Public Jolted As Campaign Turns Coarser -- Across Nation, Ripples From an Ugly Race” by Patrick Healy and Farah Stockman slanted toward Hillary Clinton while blaming Trump's comments for traumatizing women nationwide. In the lead slot story, “Officials Fight Trump’s Claims Of A Rigged Vote, Times reporters forwarded the worries of hard-left “civil rights” groups, while ignoring justified Republican concerns over vote fraud and relegating the firebombing of a local GOP headquarters to a single paragraph.

On his Sunday show yesterday, CNN host Fareed Zakaria devoted almost all of the first half of his one-hour show to an interview with far-left comedian Bill Maher, whom the CNN host gushed over being "one of the most astute political observers of our time."

Maher, whose HBO show is infamous for its vulgarity, attacked Donald Trump voters as "vulgar, tacky, racist people," and repeated Hillary Clinton's "basket of deplorables" smear. And later on, he likened Republicans going after Hillary Clinton to police officers harassing a black driver. Maher: "I always say she's like a black driver in a white neighborhood, and the police are the Republicans. They keep pulling her over, and they keep having to let her go."

While ABC and CBS on Monday highlighted the fire bombing of a Republican Party headquarters in North Carolina as “political terrorism,” NBC only gave the story seconds and avoided using that phrase.  CBS This Morning opened the program with the story and reporter Jeff Pegues explained, “Local officials are calling the violence an act of political terrorism.”

On Monday, NBC’s Today devoted a nearly three-minute report to stoking fears that Donald Trump’s supporters could cause violence if the Republican nominee is defeated in November, while only offering a scant 39 seconds of air time to a GOP campaign office in North Carolina being firebombed over the weekend.

Hours after CNN’s Brian Stelter irresponsibly passed blame on the firebombing of a North Carolina Republican headquarters to Donald Trump, the Monday edition of New Day did the bare minimum to acknowledge the subject with a mere two news briefs totaling one minute and 37 seconds for a three-hour show (so 180 minutes) that almost assuredly would be higher if the incident happened at, say, a Democratic headquarters or NAACP office.

NBC made a surprising move last Friday. After announcing that an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU would focus on a Trumpesque scandal-ridden politician, the network decided to postpone the segment’s show date. Instead of two weeks before the election as planned, the episode will now air after November 8.

Sunday night, Matt Drudge characterized a lengthy Sunday evening Washington Post report by John Wagner, Abby Phillip and Jose A. DelReal set to appear in Monday's paper as an assertion that "CLINTON (HAS) ALREADY WON!"

That's only a slight exaggeration. The theme of the trio's report is that Clinton has a secure enough lead that the campaign faces two pleasant options: nail down battleground states by larger margins or try to "expand her efforts to states that Democrats haven’t won in a generation." But based on the paper's own joint poll with ABC News, the piece's entire premise is flawed. That poll shows Mrs. Clinton with a four-point, 47 percent to 43 percent October 10-13 lead — hardly a landslide, and the exact reading seen in the Post's July 11-14 poll.

Sunday’s New York Times Magazine featured a 6,000-word cover profile of Hillary Clinton by Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent for the magazine: “Her Way.” And the article indeed went all “her way,” skipping her scandals, bashing Donald Trump and hailing the caring, dogged thoughtfulness of the Democratic candidate. This supposed sit-down with Hillary opened with a long list of condemnations of Trump over issues that have been full aired. It was quite unlike Leibovich's profiles of Republicans, which are crammed with unflattering lines.

For almost two hundred and twenty years, every president of the United States was white and male. If Hillary Clinton serves two full terms as president, that will make it sixteen years without a white guy in the White House. The prospect of that discrepancy explains Republicans’ choice of Donald Trump as their nominee, contends Jeet Heer. “By making Trump the face of the party,” wrote Heer in a Friday piece, “the Republicans are saying, ‘Our answer to the diversity of the Democratic Party is a white man who knows how to keep women and racial minorities in their place.’”
