Time’s resident humorist Joel Stein was mysteriously selected to write their latest cover story with the hair-on-fire headline “Why we’re losing the Internet to a culture of hate.” It’s mysterious because Stein has written some very troll-like commentary over the years, such as Christianity is a “death cult,” and "I don't support our troops."

But even in the very issue that Stein is complaining about ugly speech taking over the World Wide Web, he’s written a column “joking” about taking the right to vote away from old people, because they stink  at voting. The headline was “Why older people shouldn’t vote – and other ideas unpopular with my parents.”

After an Associated Press report that exposed how numerous Clinton Foundation donors were able to set up meetings with Hillary Clinton while Secretary of State, NBC correspondent and resident Clinton fangirl, Andrea Mitchell rushed to defend her on NBC Nightly News Tuesday. Mitchell seemed to be annoyed by the persistent scandal, calling it, “A headache for the Clinton campaign that could last until the election and beyond.”

News broke Tuesday via the Associated Press that, “At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs.” But that didn’t seem important enough for ABC who only gave the story a total of one minute, 44 seconds between two segments, while giving the conspiracy theory about Clinton’s health two minutes, 43 seconds that same evening on World News Tonight

The media coverage of the presidential race is so tilted to the Democrats that even liberal analysts feel obliged to declare it. USA Today media columnist Michael Wolff asserted that this campaign isn't between Trump and Clinton. It's between Trump and the media that have turned against him in a big way. "Now, appalled by their own creation, the media have become, with quite some religious fervor, the defender of truth, justice, morality and proper public behavior, all focused on (Trump's) undoing."

Much like Santiago, struggling to bring his heavily-damaged prize into shore, before being torn to shreds by predators watching to see how large and vulnerable his doomed catch has become, the liberal sports media is working overtime to cement the notion of Ryan Lochte as “Great White Villain,” before the Brazilian Police’s version of his gas station exploits starts reading more and more like a massive lie.

With even traditional outlets like the Associated Press and liberal journalists raising concerns about the Clinton Foundation, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and EMILY’s List president Stephanie Schriock did their best on Tuesday to stave off the damage by making sure viewers knew that the foundation has been “very transparent and ethical” in doing “great work.”

The “right-wing noise machine” helped make a mess for Republicans by giving “invaluable aid” to Donald Trump, declared Jeet Heer in a Friday piece. Nonetheless, Heer thinks that one positive consequence of Trump’s nomination is that “some in conservative media are…taking stock of how their own bad habits have enabled an unfit demagogue to become their party’s standard-bearer.” Heer proposed a “reform agenda that could fix conservative journalism,” which included his idea that “conservative pundits need to become more intellectually honest and not knee-jerk in dismissing mainstream outlets as inherently biased.”

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, liberal CNN political commentator Angela Rye hyperbolically asserted that Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan reminds her of slavery and the days when black Americans were assaulted with dogs and water hoses. Even though the Republican presidential candidate has stated that the 1980s is an era that he believes America was "great," the CNN commentator linked his slogan to the days of extreme racism against the black population.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar called for further government spending as a solution to racial inequality on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday. Princeton Professor Eddie Glaude, Jr. asked the basketball great, "How do we muster the courage to look the ugliness of what we are squarely in the face?" Abdul-Jabbar replied, "I think...people don't want to reach in their pockets. This is going to be expensive...and people try to avoid that — especially politicians. They don't want to tell their constituents that...taxes are a necessary evil if we're going to have the society that we want."

The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham appeared on Fox Business, Monday, to expose just what journalists will be parroting over and over this election cycle. Talking to Deirdre Bolton, Graham said of journalists, “The script is ‘Hillary is going to win big, so whatever you do, Hillary is going to win big.’”

The New York Times’ chief Hillary-following reporter Amy Chozick delivered some unfiltered Clinton campaign propaganda in Tuesday’s “'Conspiracy’ Validation Seen by Clinton Camp,” vindicating Hillary’s notorious late-90s paranoia about a “vast right-wing conspiracy” taking on the innocent, scandal-free First Couple, with Chozick defending the claim as "not entirely baseless."

Proving how the Clinton Foundation scandal has become increasingly difficult for the media to ignore, Monday’s The Last Word on MSNBC featured liberal host Lawrence O’Donnell and lefty New York magazine writer Jonathan Chait agreed that the foundation represents “a bigger problem than the Clinton campaign really seems to be aware of” and has been different than the set-up for another famous political family’s charity in the Rockefeller Foundation.

The journalists on CBS promoted Hillary Clinton bashing Donald Trump’s “wacky strategy” against her and featured clips of the Democrat on late night TV, something that’s necessary since it’s been 263 days since she’s had a press conference to talk to actual journalists. Nancy Cordes played extensive excerpts of Clinton on an ABC comedy show and then opined, “On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Clinton tackled a Trump lie about her health.”
