On Monday's CBS This Morning, Norah O'Donnell gave Attorney General Loretta Lynch a platform to condemn voter I.D. initiatives in many states. O'Donnell wondered, "Is it still harder for minorities to vote in this country?" Lynch contended that "we are still dealing with the vestiges of inequality, and people who have trouble accepting everyone's full participation in American society."

Squawk Box anchor Joe Kernen jabbed the Clinton campaign for staging a meeting between the Democratic presidential nominee and a little girl in New York City. “It was so choreographed,” Kernen said on Sept. 12.

Hillary Clinton may be slipping in the polls of late, but she has one huge asset in her corner, according to Monday’s New York Times: Michelle Obama. Reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis profiled the First Lady in “Michelle Obama to Lend an Asset to Clinton: Voters’ Trust.” The text box: “Putting the first lady’s popularity to work for the campaign.” In 2014 Davis bragged about Obama’s intellectual dinner talks in Europe, summed up in a text box as "Freewheeling events, with conversations about architecture, art and literature,” and sent him into 2016 brimming over with “accomplishments.” This time it was the First Lady’s turn for the soft pillow treatment:

On Thursday night, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon came on late on the East Coast due to the first NFL game airing on NBC. But Fallon did offer a funny bit about how they may offer new voices on the Siri app. First, he had an Obama impersonator give him the weather forecast, then had a Hillary Clinton impersonator imagine what a Hillary answer would be on Siri -- about helping with e-mails.

For weeks, the liberal media have been dismissing in all mediums nearly any questions being raised about Hillary Clinton’s health as conspiracy theories. Even after she admitted to not remembering a whole host of important details in her July 2 FBI interview about her e-mail scandal, the media stayed on message in denouncing concerns as illegitimate.

After Hillary Clinton nearly collapsed due to an undisclosed case of pneumonia on Sunday, on Monday, all three network morning shows tried to deflect from questions about her health and honesty by claiming that “both candidates” were guilty of not being forthcoming on the issue.

On Monday’s The View, the panel opened by discussing Hillary Clinton’s health update this weekend that she’s been diagnosed with pneumonia, after her campaign repeatedly denied she was ill. Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar came up with creative excuses to defend the campaign’s lack of transparency, by carefully avoiding the fact that they lied: “People come to work with all kinds of stuff. Doctors say don’t go to work, people go to work anyway.”

How do you review a hotel before it even opens? It's simple if you are an over the top liberal moonbat columnist who has a political grudge against the owner to extent you are perfectly willing to toss all credibility away in order to make strictly ideological points.
In this case it is Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak who panned Donald Trump's new Washington hotel opening today, the Trump International Hotel. Her column isn't so much as a review since it was written before the hotel even opened as it is one long hate screech against Trump:

At an LGBT fundraiser this past weekend, Clinton lumped half of Trump supporters into what she called the “basket of deplorables,” labeling them as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic,” and “Islamophobic.” Predictably, her words were Twitter approved by some of her famous fans in the entertainment world.

On Monday’s Good Morning America, anchors George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts tried to defend Clinton against her critics while interviewing correspondents Martha Raddatz and Jonathan Karl about Hillary Clinton’s health. White House correspondent Jonathan Karl criticized the Clinton camp for repeatedly denying she was ill and said their excuses as “borderline deception.”

The Huffington Post faced a quandary yesterday.
Because of the "medical episode" Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton suffered yesterday, HuffPo Senior Politics Editor Sam Stein knew that far-left website, after months of avoidance, would have to break down and start treating her health and stamina as genuine news topics. But he also decided that he needed to tweet the equivalent of a trigger warning to the website's large cadre of easily offended, reality-avoiding readers.

When it came to covering voters’ most important issue, networks fumbled again in August. Instead, the networks spent more time tackling a football player who protested the national anthem.

New York Times “public editor” or ombudsman Liz Spayd is probably not making many friends inside corporate headquarters (and Dan Rather doesn’t approve either) after her latest Sunday Review piece attacked a liberal assumption: “Here’s the Truth About ‘False Balance.’” The text box reads: “For some critics, stories are deemed fair only if they serve their cause.” Paul Krugman, call your office.

In the September 12 edition of Notable Quotables: NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell declared questions about Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy judgement are no longer “on the table," while CNN’s Van Jones concluded “when you look at the fact checkers” Clinton is "one of the most honest politicians in America.”
At the same time, Donald Trump’s slogan “Making America Great Again” is deemed to be racist code language. Also, journalists rush to defend San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest against the National Anthem and the passing of conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly exposes the ugliness on the left.

Who would have thought it would be the 2017 Miss America Competition that would force ABC to talk about liberal media bias? Of course, it took the liberal media freaking out that Hillary wasn’t handled with kid gloves by Today show host Matt Lauer at MSNBC/NBC’s Commander in Chief Forum last week for this to become an issue raised during the pageant.
