“Hillary Clinton” is synonymous with “women’s rights,” according to the broadcast networks. During their national news shows, ABC, CBS and NBC have repeatedly brought up “women’s rights” while reporting on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton since she announced her presidential bid. In that same time frame, the networks mostly ignored the tens of millions of dollars in donations the Clinton Foundation accepted from countries that violate women’s rights.

With all eyes on the Democratic National Convention, the liberal media’s affection for Hillary Clinton has been laughably obvious. That extended to media websites.
CBSNews.com ‘Moneywatch’ published, “What a Hillary clinton economy might look like” article on July 26. It was written by economist Mark Thoma who said what he thinks she “gets right” and “wrong” on economic policy. Of course, it was predictably liberal, calling for massive increases in government spending.

Jim Jefferies’s Australian homeland implemented nationwide seizure of 650,000 guns. He’d love to have that in the USA. On Monday, late show host Conan O’Brien invited the Australian comedian on to the show for a gun-control love fest. Jefferies originally made waves when he went on a 14-minute anti-gun stint in his 2014 Netflix show Bare. Every time there’s another mass shooting, that video resurfaces, helping to make Jefferies the face of gun-control in the comedy world.

As Tuesday began, the liberal-media site PolitiFact confirmed for their media pals that the RNC was correct in asserting that not one of the 61 Democratic convention speakers on Monday had breathed the word “ISIS.”
But perhaps since that was identified as a Republican talking point, none of the networks found that worth a full news story. There was no wondering out loud how this kind of an oversight could happen, or what it says about how out of touch the Democrats are in the wake of a very violent year. NBC didn’t touch the gaffe on their newscasts. ABC and CBS each covered the news on Tuesday night for less than a minute.

After observing during the Republican National Convention that GOP voters were “better about laughing at themselves,” Saturday Night Live Weekend Update hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che appeared again on NBC’s Today on Wednesday to confirm that impression. Following their man-on-the-street comedy skit with attendees of the Democratic National Convention, co-host Matt Lauer asked: “We asked you last week, we'll ask you again. Who’s funnier, Republicans or Democrats?”

In a fawning report on Wednesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Peter Alexander celebrated Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate ahead of his address to the Democratic National Convention: “Hillary Clinton is really doubling down on the value of a political resume in this pick of Senator Tim Kaine, who's governed at almost every level....Tonight the theme is ‘Working Together,’ and Kaine's friends tell me he would make the perfect partner.”

Every slight is sexist, racist, homophobic, you name it, in the eyes of liberals. Case in point, the media’s overblown response to Donald Trump shushing NBC reporter Katy Tur during Wednesday morning’s press conference. Journalists on Twitter were aghast that Trump dared to interrupt a relentless reporter, while MSNBC’s Tamron Hall likened the exchange to overt sexism, in the age of the first female presidential nominee.

Night 2 of Democratic Convention coverage: A New York Times reporter referred to the Clintons’ “very rich and complicated relationship,” the “historic” card was played nonstop, and the editorial page owes Mitt Romney an apology on Russia. The reporters weren’t particularly thrilled with Bill Clinton’s speech, but one reporter still found a euphemism for Bill Clinton's personal sex scandals, finding the Clintons' marriage a "rich and complicated relationship."

The liberal-media adoration of Bill Clinton never ends. You can easily tell by all of the embarrassing facts they always leave out: the impeachment, the disbarment, the rape charge, the Clinton Foundation cronyism. The televised debates after his speeches seem to center on whether he is the greatest orator of our time, or the greatest orator of all time.
Tuesday’s Quote of the Day goes to ABC Hillary-beat reporter Cecilia Vega, who toed the DNC spin line precisely by hailing Slick Willie as “telling a family story at a bar, or around the dinner table at a holiday.” She also recounted their antiquated “secret weapon” spin (what’s secret about it?) that the Clinton camp used to employ the other way about Hillary. She should ask for a gratuity for that service.

Why have one sexy model eating a burger when you can have three? Carl’s Jr.’s most recent ad campaign features lots of burgers, bacon, and babes. The fast food chain’s newest item is the Bacon 3-Way Burger. The only thing that sells better than bacon is sex, but the restaurant took that to another level with their Three-Way “Fantasy.”
Cox Media Reporter: Children of 'Mothers of the Movement' Were Victims of 'Vigilante Justice' and 'Police Brutality'By Tom Blumer | | July 27, 2016 | 11:45 AM EDT
Gateway Pundit dubbed the Democratic National Convention's program Tuesday evening as "Criminal Appreciation Night." Site proprietor Jim Hoft certainly has a point. The party officially nominated a candidate for the highest office in the land who committed acknowledged and admitted criminal acts, but whom the FBI and the intensely politicized Justice Department chose not to prosecute. A former president who was impeached over admitted perjury, also known as a crime, was also a featured speaker.
Tuesday night's program also included an appearance by several representatives of "Mothers of the Movement." Here, as seen at the Dayton Daily News, is how Richard Thompson of Rare.us, a Cox Media-owned web operation, began his coverage of the "Mothers" appearance:

After asking President Obama if the prospect of Donald Trump having control of the nuclear codes was “frightening,” in part two of a White House interview aired on Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie worried that Trump was the one launching personal attacks: “Does it feel personal? I mean, Mr. Trump has made it pretty personal against you. I could give you a list, which I guess I probably don't need to.”

Celebrities are literally doing everything they can to aid Hillary in her fight for the presidency. So, on Tuesday, before the Democratic nominee stepped onto the stage, they appeared on the big screen in an a cappella version of “Fight Song” – a tune Hillary has used throughout her campaign.
Pitch Perfect actress Elizabeth Banks, who directed the video, was the first to appear. Smiling complacently, she proudly adjusted the Clinton pin on her blazer and declared: "This is for Hillary."

Wednesday on Morning Joe, co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski continued to marvel over the “obvious excitement” at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. While the hosts insisted there was no comparison between the DNC and the RNC, they continued to build up the Democrats by knocking down the Republicans. The liberal hosts painted a picture of an “excited” DNC filled with “history” and “emotion,” compared to an RNC laden with “empty seats” and “sleepwalking.”

America’s wealthiest media mogul calls himself a “moderate” businessman, but his money and media empire tell the story of a self-absorbed liberal intent on influencing the 2016 election.
Michael Bloomberg announced on March 7, 2016, he would not run for president in 2016 because “there is a good chance that my candidacy could lead to the election of Donald Trump or Senator Ted Cruz.” Now that the race has narrowed, Bloomberg said he will endorse Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on stage during the party’s convention Wednesday night.
