Over the past five weeks, all three broadcast networks have essentially walked away from covering the ex-Secretary of State’s secret extra-governmental e-mail server and the possible loss of crucial documents needed by the House Select Committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks, with coverage on ABC, CBS and NBC’s morning and evening news shows falling by more than 93 percent from the levels seen in early March.

A liberal worth $15 million crusading against the wealthy with a documentary. Now that's comedy gold.
It's also exactly what British comedian and left-wing activist Russell Brand has done by making The Emperor's New Clothes, which was directed Michael Winterbottom.

How bad are things getting for Hillary when a defender is reduced to arguing, in response to the Clinton Cash allegations, that Bill might have been a dishonest bag man, not letting Hillary know that people were giving him money in an attempt to influence her?!
On today's Morning Joe, responding to the Clinton Cash revelations, MSNBC contributor Dorian Warren said that Bill Clinton "could have been running serious game on many of these countries saying I'll talk to my wife, give me the check, and then never mentioning [it.]"

Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter Jackie Crosby's writeup on how "Minnesota has been losing residents to other states" since 2002, and that it's especially troubling because "young adults are leaving in the greatest numbers," contained an enormous blind spot.
The Gopher State, aka the Land of 10,000 Lakes, is also sardonically known as the Land of 10,000 Taxes by many residents, and with good reason. Yet the only time the word "tax" appeared was in a sentence discussing the need for "robust tax rolls."

After briefly alluding to the Clinton Foundation scandal on Monday’s CBS This Morning, the CBS Evening News made no mention of the scandal or a damning new book on the subject from author Peter Schweizer on its Monday evening broadcast. Both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News did cover the story as well as Hillary Clinton’s response Monday afternoon in New Hampshire, but also parroted Clinton campaign talking points in responding to Schweizer’s allegations.
Atheist Writer: Most 2016 Presidential Candidates Are ‘God-Fearing Clowns and Faith-Mongering Nitwits’By Tom Johnson | April 20, 2015 | 9:23 PM EDT
Imagine a president of the United States proclaiming in his or her inaugural address, “I do not believe in God. I do not believe in a hereafter…There is no hope, save in ourselves.” If something like that ever happens, writer Jeffrey Tayler’s dream will have come true.
Tayler, who routinely trashes religion for the liberal online magazine Salon, complained in a Sunday article that several recent announcements of presidential candidacies have brought about “a media carnival featuring, on both sides, an array of supposedly God-fearing clowns and faith-mongering nitwits groveling before Evangelicals and nattering on about their belief in the Almighty.” He called on the media not to let the candidates “get away with God talk without making them answer for it.”

Chris Christie who? Rachel Swarns, who for years fawned over Barack and Michelle Obama for the New York Times, wrote an "open letter" column to actor Adam Baldwin in defense of a left-wing group which tied up traffic in mid-town Manhattan in the name of a $15-an-hour "living wage."

Former Arkansas governor and potential 2016 Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee may well be guilty of sedition, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews charged on his April 20 program. The offense which merits the charge?: Huckabee urging Americans to not enlist in the U.S. military until after President Obama leaves office.

In an interview with Marisa Guthrie of The Hollywood Reporter, Fox News boss Roger Ailes played his cards close to the vest on whether Fox will give oxygen to “fringe candidates” on the Republican side who could “torment” Jeb Bush. But he did crack wise that “Hillary is going to do whatever she wants, and the press is going to vote for her.”

At the top of Monday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer announced Tim Tebow's return to football by proclaiming: "...one of the most popular and polarizing quarterbacks in NFL history returning to the game after three years." In another tease minutes later, fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie wondered: "Is this a second chance or a publicity stunt?"

All three networks on Sunday and Monday blasted biased reporting and conflict of interest at PBS. However, the subject matter wasn't the taxpayer-supported outlet's liberal tilt. It was related to Ben Affleck and his appearance on Finding Your Roots. Apparently, PBS colluded with the movie star to cover up the fact that Affleck's ancestor owned slaves.
