Appearing as a guest on Monday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of white supremacists who have shown support for Donald Trump, CNN political commentator Carl Bernstein asserted that there are "an awful lot of bigots and nativists and a lot of hateful people" in Trump's coalition as he renewed his charge that the GOP candidate is a "neo-fascist."

Host Don Lemon began the segment by turning to Trump supporter Jason Osborne and posing: "You just heard that white supremacist and extremist groups are being energized by Donald Trump. Why do you think that is?"

Sneering New York Times writer Dan Bilefsky on Tuesday tarred Brexit voters as inciting bigotry and “xenophobia.” This is despite the fact that in paragraph five, the journalist conceded that “police in at least two major cities said they had not recorded an increase in hate crimes after the vote.”

It’s an odd thing to see: Pro-life women speaking out in favor of safety standards for abortion. Pro-life women. Not pro-abortion women. Following Monday’s ruling in Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, pro-life leaders slammed the Supreme Court decision in the Texas abortion case that left them “heartbroken” and “disappointed.” MRC Culture spoke with three women leaders who called out the justices for failing to protect women and criticized the media for siding with abortion supporters: Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life, Arina Grossu of Family Research Council and Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America.

On Tuesday, while all three network morning shows covered the newly-released House Benghazi Committee report, the broadcasts also dutifully parroted Democratic talking points attacking the credibility of the findings and concluded: “It does not appear to uncover conclusive evidence of wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton.”

Nigel Farage the leader of the UK Independence Party appeared on CNN Tuesday afternoon to discuss his support of Brexit, but was subjected to almost an interrogation-like interview from their reporter.  “How much damage are you prepared to see,” CNN’s Richard Quest demanded to know, “How much damage are you prepared to accept before you rebuild the house?”

It is now two days since it became obvious that the claim that "millions of Britons" have signed a House of Commons petition advocating a do-over Brexit vote is bogus.

The petition's buildup to millions of "signatures" was predominantly caused by bot-generating pranksters, and the entire effort proves absolutely nothing about UK citizens' alleged "regrets" over voting to leave the European Union last Thursday. But the press, either reluctant to admit they've been had or to discard a convenient, agenda-driven meme (or both), is allowing its past erroneous reporting on the petition to stand, while refusing to acknowledge more than a sliver of the fraudulent enterprise.

The network newscasts have shown no interest in an ex-Secret Service agent’s unflattering portrayal of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s time at the White House. Gary Byrne, author of Crisis of Character, appeared on Fox’s Hannity, Monday, but has been all but invisible on ABC, CBS and NBC.

The Huffington Post is once again showing their political bias by pushing a new poll on vice presidential names for presumptive presidential nominee Hilary Clinton.  Who happens to be at the top of that list?  Bernie Sanders, even though the Clinton campaign has said they are not considering a Clinton-Sanders ticket.

Samantha Neal – a “political polling intern” for the left-leaning news outlet -- cited a new poll from Monmouth University finding “Thirty-nine percent of voters nationwide said they would be more likely to vote for the Democratic ticket if Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders were on it."

Pro-life Christians have got it all wrong. God actually wants some people to get abortions. At least, that’s one way Chelsea Handler justifies the pro-choice movement. The talk show host has always been open about her choice to abort her own teenage pregnancies. She has no regrets about the choice(s) she made at 16. In a recent essay penned for Playboy magazine, Handler wrote that “I’m 41 now. I don’t ever look back and think, God, I wish I’d had that baby.”

All three networks on Tuesday hyped a possible Hillary Clinton/Elizabeth Warren presidential ticket, but the journalists on ABC’s Good Morning America were the most effusive. Former Democratic operative and Clinton Foundation donor George Stephanopoulos cheered, “Elizabeth Warren, certainly a  bold choice. An all woman ticket would be brand new.”

Left-wing comedian Trevor Noah still found a way to blast Pope Francis on Monday's Daily Show as he gave mild praise to the pontiff over his recent remarks: "The Pope says the Church and all Christians should apologize to gay people...My question is, how?..it's not like Hallmark makes 'Sorry, I oppressed you for centuries' cards." Noah later dropped an obscenity: "It almost seems like the higher up the Pope goes, the more progressive he becomes. We got to send that mother-f***er into space just to see how liberal he can get!"

In the aftermath of the Clinton/Warren rally in Cincinnati, MSNBC correspondents hailed the “magic” of what was apparently more like a “rock concert” than a campaign event. On Tuesday, Morning Joe exhibited more of the same as they obsessed over Clinton and Warren’s “really good chemistry.” Yes, another MSNBC groupie took the compulsive idolization to another level, as host Joe Scarborough likened Warren to rock n’ roll legend Led Zeppelin:

CBS This Morning took a strange turn during its interview with Chaos Monkeys author Antonio Martinez. Martinez, who publically compared Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to "Fidel Castro", led co-host Gayle King to ask Martinez "is that a compliment?"

CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather to assess “media complicity in the rise of Trump.” He never even hinted at the notion that the liberal media liked the idea of Trump as the easiest nominee for the Clintons to vanquish.

Rather’s new title is “CEO of the production company News & Guts.” The company website features Rather standing alone in a sun-dappled field with a pair of binoculars.

Dehumanizing people only works one way for leftists. Michael Ian Black’s new children’s book, A Child’s First Book of Trump, explains the “wild” “beasties,” called the Trumps, to our “youngest citizens,” according to its satirical description. USA Today notes that while the book is supposedly for the youngest citizens, “Older citizens might need a primer too.”
