All three networks on Tuesday fretted over the sordid details of Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, worrying that the “personal” is now becoming political. A CBS This Morning analyst dismissed Donald Trump’s contention that the wife of the unrestrained Weiner may be a security risk.

Chelsea Handler seems to be everywhere at once. The brash and crude Chelsea show host was a guest in a spate of recent interviews hosted by outlets like Harper’s Bazaar, Huffington Post and Politico. And although her words are often inflammatory, she is predictably never called out by the media.

On Monday's MSNBC Live, Steve Kornacki refreshingly spotlighted Hillary Clinton's utter lack of press conferences in 2016. Kornacki used a "Most Important Number of the Day" segment to point out that Mrs. Clinton's last presser was "268 days ago [as of Monday]...on December Fourth of last year — December Fourth of 2015." The anchor also noted that there were "17 news conferences, so far, for Donald Trump in this campaign — in the 2016 year of this campaign; zero for Hillary Clinton."

How will you deal with the “vast right-wing conspiracy” always trying to “undermine” you if you are elected? This is just one of ten “good questions” liberal blogger Paul Waldman wants to ask Hillary Clinton, if she ever has a press conference before November 8. He’s not the only journalist clamoring for another press conference. After all, it’s been 269 days since her last one. Because of this, some journalists have had extra time to think on the types of thoughtful questions they’d ask Hillary if they had the chance. Except asking thoughtful, critical or tough questions seems to be an impossibility for liberal journalists like Waldman. His latest “10 Good Questions for Hillary Clinton,” posted in the Washington Post’s Plum Line blog this weekend, strikes the same favorable, lenient, even apologetic tone Clinton has always experienced from the press.

Discussing the latest sexting scandal for Anthony Weiner on Tuesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Andrea Mitchell commented on top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin separating from the disgraced ex-congressman: “...despite their long-troubled marriage and that friends say that this was coming for a long time....they were trying to continue with this facade of a marriage....it worked for them for now. They were hoping to at least get through the campaign, through the election. But then it became untenable.”

Actor Don Cheadle is the most recent celebrity to wish a horrific death upon Donald Trump. After Nykea Aldridge died in the crossfire of a Chicago gun fight on August 26, Trump tweeted: “Dwayne Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!”

CNN on Monday displayed the latest example of the double standard that, while liberals are known for recounting social problems that disproportionately hit America's black population like poverty or shootings when they can promote liberal policy prescriptions like government spending or gun control, when conservatives raise these same issues with the promise of a conservative-based prescription, liberals react by finding nefarious motives or even deny that such substantial problems even exist.

On At This Hour with Berman and Bolduan, liberal CNN commentator Angela Rye spoke as if she were in denial of the economic and crime problems faced by much of the black population as she declared that "I'm not impoverished," and oddly boasted that "several" of her friends are middle class and "doing well in this country." She also declared that, referring to slavery, "we were barefoot on plantations building this country for free."

As usual, Azteca America takes the cake for the most over-the-top anti-Trump news on U.S. Spanish-language television. In its national evening newscast, the U.S. subsidiary of the Mexican television conglomerate devoted almost three minutes to what amounted to an extended anti-Trump ad in the form of a musical rant by Mexican singer-songwriter Serralde.

In what must be at least the twentieth media installment of "I can't be objective about this," MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski brought out her death stare as she reacted on Friday's Morning Joe show to Donald Trump's characterization of Hillary Clinton as a bigot — after several months during which Mrs. Clinton, her campaign and the press (but I repeat myself) have routinely called Trump or his rhetoric "racist."

Apparently unaware that we heard her the first time, Brzezinski addressed Mr. Trump as if there, saying "You have no idea" three separate times, and also said, "I can't pretend and sort of try to cover this fairly and put it in a veil of objectivity." Why don't you tell us something we didn't already know?

Reading Mike Florio’s commentary in Pro Football Talk about Donald Trump’s response to Colin Kaepernick, one could be forgiven for thinking that Florio was excitedly waiting for Donald Trump to comment.

The mainstream media selectively highlighted parts of Colin Kaepernick’s Sunday press conference comments, in order to shield Hillary Clinton. As pointed out by Fox Sports’ Clay Travis, Kaepernick took a massive shot at Hillary Clinton in that presser that has gone virtually uncovered.

The fear of a cyber-attack on the American election system seemed close to being realized Monday with a dire warning from FBI. “There’s late word tonight that the FBI is warning state election officials to pay more attention to the security of their voting systems in response to recent hacking attacks that are just now coming to light,” reported fill-in anchor Savannah Guthrie on NBC Nightly News. NBC was the only network to share the FBI’s warning, while ABC and CBS failed to mention it at all.

The news broke Monday that ObamaCare has again missed enrollment forecasts from the Congressional Budget Office, resulting in grossly limited options and high prices for consumers. “Enrollment is simply nowhere near what the congressional budget office thought it would be,” reported Fox News correspondent Kevin Corke, “Now what that means is higher costs for those of you who that take part, and for the insurers, it means they're losing money.” Even with that dire fact the “Big Three” news networks chose to cover for the Obama administration.

CNN's Marc Lamont Hill sided with Colin Kaepernick on Monday's New Day, after the NFL quarterback used the national anthem to protest the apparent oppression of blacks in the U.S.: "When black people...critique America, a certain label gets put on that doesn't get put on other people." Hill also played up how the anthem was written before the abolition of slavery, and derided criticism of Kaepernick as "another example of white people defining for black people what's most important."

New on August 29: MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski calling for a mental evaluation of the GOP presidential nominee: “I actually think it’s time to hear from somebody in the mental health community.”
