New York Times reporters Michael Barbaro and Monica Davey portrayed Donald Trump’s socially conservative vice presidential running mate as a potentially “dangerous anachronism” in “Mike Pence: A Conservative Proudly Out of Sync With His Times.” By contrast, The Times wrote a flattering article on potential Hillary Clinton running mate Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, who carries a 90% rating (out of 100) from the liberal Americans for Democratic Action, without once giving him an ideological label (though being a "white man" is seen as a drawback)

During a discussion on Friday about the recent terrorist attack in Nice, France a guest on MSNBC claimed something absolutely ridiculous. Former United States Intelligence Officer Malcom Nance claimed that both the attack in Orlando, Florida and the attack in San Bernardino, California were not necessarily acts of ISIS terror. He pointed to instances of personal turmoil in the attackers’ lives as evidence that they were driven by other motives.

In what is a recurring theme, Univision once again saves its most insanely biased analyses for its digital platform. This time the network comically welcomes Mike Pence to the Republican ticket, confirming every Establishment Media stereotype in the process.

Like their fellow cable news outlets, MSNBC offered rolling coverage throughout the night Thursday into Friday due to the Nice, France terrorist attack and one such guest told breaking news anchor Brian Williams that ISIS should be known as “punks and thugs and mercenaries” instead of being associated with Islam.

On Friday’s Today, NBC terror analyst Michael Leiter partly blamed France for Thursday’s terrorist attack in the resort town of Nice: “The French really do have a disenfranchised Muslim population...which has become extremely isolated. And even France’s efforts to allow for the free expression of religion has, I think arguably in some cases, produced more isolation and more radicalization.”

The feminists seem to think that if they can just call enough Americans “misogynists” and “sexists,” their all-female Ghostbusters reboot will be successful. Since that hasn’t worked yet, Washington Post columnist Kristen Page-Kirby has a new insult to try out. In her review of the film, she wrote that “’Ghostbusters’ is pretty funny and anyone who says otherwise is a virgin loser who lives in his mom’s basement.”

Hollywood’s agenda-pushing is no secret. In fact, producers and actors don’t even attempt to deny it. In interviews conducted by Ben Shapiro, executive producer Leonard Goldberg stated that Hollywood liberalism is “100 percent dominant, and anyone who denies it is kidding, or not telling the truth.” Even if everyone denied it, you’d only have to watch a handful of movies to catch the ideological drift. So here’s the handful that MRC Culture recommends – or, doesn’t – a list of some of the worst offenders. It was hard to choose, and we know there are many more liberal films out there, so take a look and leave a comment with movies your top picks.

On Friday's New Day, CNN analyst and former FBI Assistant Director Tom Fuentes played up the possibility of fatal gun violence at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland due to Ohio's open carry law: "[The] law means that you're going to see people — and some of the websites have already said for their protest groups to show up and openly carry assault rifles on the streets of Cleveland....my fear is that if you have people show up like that, you could have another Dallas (sic) — biker bar shootout. One shot could lead to a massacre."

In quite the egregious chyron fail, CNN’s live coverage on Friday of the Nice, France terror attack featured an interview with one young survivor and was deemed by the CNN graphic of having been a “Trump Rampage Survivor” hinting that he had lived to tell of a rampage carried out by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The media exuded panic surrounding the vote for the U.K. to leave the European Union, commonly called Brexit. Reports after the vote panicked over how much markets had fallen, worried about a potential recession for the UK and otherwise attacked the outcome.

Appearing on MSNBC in the 11 a.m. ET hour on Friday, Daily Beast editor and NBC News contributor Christopher Dickey was confounded by the idea that the terrorist who launched Thursday’s attack on France was heavily armed: “...where the hell did he get those arms? I mean, this is not Alabama or South Carolina or Texas. You just can't go buy automatic pistols in any old store in town by showing your driver's license.”

So far, Univision’s national evening newscast coverage of the GOP platform has solely focused on the border wall plank, but has completely missed another development of importance to many of their viewers: the inclusion of strong language endorsing Puerto Rican statehood in the Republican platform.

News of the evening terrorist truck attack in Nice, France first appeared at the Drudge report at 5:06 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time Thursday afternoon. By 5:28, Drudge was linking to an item noting that conducting a terrorist attack with a truck is something "that jihadist propaganda has suggested for several years."
Friday at 12:15 a.m. Eastern Time, hours after it was known that what had occurred was a terrorist attack, a tweet from the intrepid journalists (that's sarcasm, folks) at MSNBC.com told readers that the event was a "deadly truck crash."

On Thursday night, MSNBC’s The Last Word spent the duration of its show on the Nice, France truck terror attack and New York Times columnist Frank Bruni lamented that the “really, really volatile moment” could be used have negative connotations on both European and “French politics” in light of Brexit with “feelings of nativism, wanting to close doors.”
