At her personal web site's home page, Ebony Magazine Senior Editor Jamilah Lemieux says she is "One of those pesky Black feminists who challenges the status quo, while remaining fresh and fab at all times." "Fresh and fab" would hardly describe Ms. Lemieux's Wednesday appearance on CNN Newsroom, where she took issue with, per the White House, President Barack Obama's characterization of the murders of five Dallas law enforcement officers as "hate crimes." You see, that's not her "most comfortable word choice," because it involved white cops.

NBC News foreign correspondent Bill Neely interviewed Syrian President and brutal dictator Bashar Al-Assad that began airing on Wednesday night and, somehow, large portions of the hour-long special were dedicated to harping on Donald Trump’s candidacy, if his lack of foreign policy experience concerned Assad and if his Muslim ban hurt his feelings.

The Affordable Care Act crisis is continuing, but you wouldn’t know that if you relied on ABC, CBS or NBC for your news. On July 5, CNBC called Connecticut’s state co-op “financially unstable,” noting that “HealthyCT is the 14th of 23 original ObamaCare co-ops to fail since they began selling health plans on government-run Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges.” A few days later, on July 8, Oregon’s co-op became the 15th to fail. Illinois followed on July 12.

As we have noted previously, the wildest instances of bias by Univision News are now reflected on the network's digital platform.

Journalists still haven’t lost their devotion to the Kennedys. The Today show on Thursday hailed a new documentary on John F. Kennedy Jr. as highlighting “America’s royalty” and a “prince.” Previewing I Am JFK Jr., Savannah Guthrie lauded, “A new documentary sheds light on the life and love of America's prince nearly two decades after his tragic death.”

Say goodbye to those un-American foods like sushi, tacos, and pasta, you college kids! At least, if Lena Dunham and Co. get their way. Political correctness strikes again, this time at Ohio’s liberal Oberlin College. Students there have been getting their panties in a knot recently because their college dining hall has the audacity to serve a variety of foods. Like sushi and banh mi.

On Thursday, the general consensus around the table on Morning Joe was that Justice Ginsburg’s recent comments on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump were inappropriate and misplaced.  While host Joe Scarborough joked that Ginsburg’s comments were a symptom of her “miss[ing] Scalia” he reiterated the reality that her actions walk the thin line of “ethical violations.” Similar to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell who "set the record straight” in defense of Ginsburg, co-host Mika Brzezinski danced around the issue, suggesting “maybe it was a mistake?”

On the Wednesday edition of MSNBC’s The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell offered an baffling and exhaustive defense of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s outburst against Donald Trump by pointing to the first Chief Justice’s gubernatorial election record and opining that if Ginsburg is forced to recuse herself from any election-related cases, Catholics should recuse themselves from any abortion case.

All three networks on Thursday touted NBA stars at the ESPY awards making a “call to action" on guns, but only CBS highlighted former Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade demanding a stop to the “shoot to kill” of African Americans.

TVNewser's Chris Ariens reported on Wednesday that Luke Russert will be leaving NBC News, as of Friday. Ariens quoted from a statement by NBC Washington bureau chief Ken Strickland, who labeled the journalist "our dogged Capitol Hill correspondent." However, Russert made it clear from the very start of his career at the Big Three network that he had a liberal slant. Most recently, he gushed over the pro-gun control sit-in by congressional Democrats inside the House chamber in June 2016.

While statistics show that about half of criminal suspects shot and killed by police in the U.S. are white, with only about 25 percent being black, the dominant media rarely find any examples of whites being shot to be worthy of attention,

But, on Wednesday night, on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, correspondent Randi Kaye did take time to file a full report on a new Harvard study of select police departments which suggests not only that blacks are not more likely to be shot than whites, but that whites are more likely to be shot in cases when the police are not attacked by suspects first. Kaye: "When it comes to more extreme force in officer-involved shootings, the study found no racial difference at all. In fact, officers were more likely to fire their weapons without having first been attacked if the suspects were white, weakening the argument for racial bias in the use of lethal force."

Appearing on Thursday’s CBS This Morning, liberal PBS filmmaker Ken Burns absurdly argued: “I’ve spent my entire professional life being straight down the middle, non-partisan. Just trying to tell American facts. I try, in public television, to reach all audiences.” He made that declaration despite being on the show to promote his anti-Donald Trump crusade in the 2016 campaign.

It was bound to happen, some public figure was going to sympathize with the Dallas cop killer. But a former beauty queen is now wishing that that someone hadn’t been her. Kalyn Chapman James incited widespread outrage after posting a video Sunday morning where she called the Dallas sniper a “martyr.”

Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon wants to reassure liberal America: She’s a big fan of Hillary Clinton. The comic who plays the Democrat on SNL appeared on NBC’s Today, Thursday, to describe Clinton as “wanting to do good.” Co-host Savannah Guthrie asked what the “essential quality you have to capture if you want to be Hillary Clinton?”
