For the past couple days violence has erupted at Donald Trump rallies in New Mexico and California, resulting in police breaking out the riot gear. The cause? Violent leftists who can’t express themselves through peaceful protest, but NBC and ABC handed the responsibility solely to Trump on Wednesday night. “Where Trump goes, unrest follows … This is the same scene that we are seeing play out in city after city across America,” NBC’s Katy Tur exaggerated.

The US State Department’s Inspector General released a report Wednesday what was highly damaging to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The report found that Clinton did not receive any approval to host a private server what so ever and there were two known attempted hackings.

Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon conducted a number of interviews on Wednesday in reaction to the State Department Inspector General’s scathing rebuke of Clinton’s private e-mail account and server, but none measured up to FNC’s Special Report host Bret Baier and his calm, thorough dismantling of Fallon.

On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of Donald Trump making an issue of Hillary Clinton being an "enabler" of her husband, Bill Clinton, abusing women, host Don Lemon seemed unaware of the kinds of accusations made by women like Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey that Hillary Clinton had taken part in efforts to intimidate them into silence about sexual assaults.

At one point, Lemon cluelessly commented: "This is the first time that I think that I've heard of in any situation ... where the woman who was cheated on is now being accused of doing something wrong. Usually, women stand behind a woman who was cheated on rather than saying, 'Well, she enabled.' If someone cheated on me, I'm not going to say nice things about the person they cheated on with."

New York Times Hillary-beat reporter Amy Chozick matter-of-factly compared Whitewater special prosecutor Ken Starr to Inspector Javert, the fanatical pursuer of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, while blaming him for bringing “a new intensity to partisan warfare” in his prosecution of Bill Clinton, in Wednesday’s “Starr, Who Tried to Bury Clinton, Now Praises Him.” Chozick even suggested Starr's investigation was responsible for the Clinton administration being distracted from the threat of Osama bin Laden.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs could barely contain his outrage over the latest examples of the media spinning for Hillary Clinton. Regarding a new MRC analysis that found the networks in 2016 have spent less than five minutes on the scandals engulfing the Clinton Foundation, Dobbs sputtered, “You’re talking about, basically, ten percent of that money going to good causes. That’s a hefty administrative charge and it makes you think, immediately, this is worthy of great inspection [by journalists].”

The media routinely insist on taking rape seriously (think: The Hunting Ground). But an odd hypocrisy arises when entertainment media suddenly praise a “rape comedy.”

It took less than five seconds of animation in the latest trailer for Pixar’s Finding Dory to convince Twitter and some media outlets that Disney will finally feature a lesbian couple.

Around the one-minute mark, two women are shown with a little girl in a stroller during a fast-paced escape scene for Dory, the beloved forgetful fish.

On Tuesday, the House began proceedings to impeach current IRS chief John Koskinen for his role in stonewalling the investigation into the IRS targeting scandal. Impeachment is something that hasn’t been done, according to Fox New’s Bill Hemmer, for a non-president since 1876. And despite Koskinen arrogantly ducking yesterday’s hearings the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks didn’t air a second of this latest development on their evening or morning newscasts.

On Wednesday, the network morning shows all promoted violent left-wing protests outside a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico as a sign of trouble for the “controversial” GOP candidate and even provided a platform for rioters to justify their actions. At the top of NBC’s Today, co-host Matt Lauer breathlessly declared: “Breaking overnight, protests turn violent at a Trump rally in New Mexico. Demonstrators knocking down barriers and throwing rocks.”

As further proof that the nation’s leading Hispanic media are really a subset of the establishment media - as opposed to something independent of it - the Washington Post has decided to once again dedicate prime ink to the showcasing of Univision’s much-ballyhooed voter registration drive.

In the overnight hours of Tuesday into Wednesday, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggested that there’s a segment of Americans opposed to President Barack Obama who want him permanently wiped from U.S. history books and any list of American Presidents because of his race. Right on the dot at 1:00 a.m. Eastern, Matthews also creepily complimented NBC News correspondent Hallie Jackson for having “definitely calmest voice out there” amidst the violence after a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico.

The Washington Post sure knows how to very carefully nibble around the edges when it comes to criticizing the economic system that brought disaster to a country. In this case, the Post's editorial board managed to severely criticize Venezuela for being a complete economic failure despite have the largest known oil reserves of any nation in the world. It had to be an incredibly disastrous economic system to bring such a nation so low that now it is running out of food, toilet paper, and beer. So do you think the Washington Post editorial named that system? Nope. Instead they very carefully avoided any mention of that giant elephant in the room.

The backlash against the increasing delays caused by the TSA has been so bad that on March 24, the TSA reassigned its head of security. According to CBS Evening News, 450 people missed their flights from Chicago’s O’Hare airport on May 15 because of TSA delays.

Despite devoting more than 42 minutes to the abysmal failures of the TSA since coverage began on May 10, neither ABC, CBS nor NBC once even hinted that the Obama Administration might bear even some of the blame on their evening news shows. Instead, the networks  pointed the finger at Congress, at airlines, at passengers – but criticism of the White House was as off limits as a 4 ounce bottle of water at airport security.

On Wednesday's New Day, CNN political analyst David Gregory downplayed the dispute between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters over DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz: "I do think this is overblown...the rules in the parties...[are] not meant to elevate the unconventional, outside candidate. That's true in the Republican side; and it's probably truer on the Democratic side with the super-delegates." Gregory later asserted that "there is certainly discord within the Democratic Party. It's not as big as we've seen and are seeing on the Republican side."
