Bourdain posted a picture of his meal with the President on Instagram, and trumpeted that "the President's chopstick skills are on point."

Hillary Clinton unveiled her new campaign slogan, “stronger together,” on Meet the Press Sunday and most the panelists at the roundtable weren’t too enthusiastic about it. Many felt the slogan was too defensive and provided no drive for supporters, but New York Times Correspondent Helene Cooper had nothing but praise for it. “I want to put some love in for Hillary's new slogan,” she stated, “[It] goes back to kind of what we saw in 2008 and when president Obama was talking about “yes we can.”

The journalists at NBC on Monday searched for a “silver lining” for Hillary Clinton’s sagging poll numbers and suggested it was just “hang-wringing” to worry about a potential November loss now.

Blake Lively is a beautiful young Hollywood actress and new mother.  She’s also very shapely – in the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian – she’s got an ample behind.
 
Lively recently graced the red carpet at Cannes wearing a tight dress and later posted on social media a photo with the caption, “L.A. face with an Oakland booty,” because…well…it was a picture of her backside in the curve hugging dress.  And all hell broke loose on social media. Why? Because many thought it was RACIST.

A pair of recent stories on NBC's Spanish-language sister network, Telemundo, prove that bias is everywhere and not always limited to the body of a report. As was reported on several major media outlets, the United States Supreme Court has decided it is appropriate to bar a deported foreign national from re-entry into the United States due to a prior conviction of attempted arson.

Liberal interviewers are quick to question reasonable but somehow "controversial" assertions made by Republicans and conservatives, while loony statements uttered by leftist interview subjects often slide right on by without challenge.

On Tuesday, MSNBC host Thomas Roberts heard Bernie Sanders delegate Angie Morelli claim that single-payer health insurance might "help those people out" who made "death threats" against Democratic Party officials after Nevada's contentious delegate selection process last week. Instead of bursting out in laughter or questioning Morelli as to how she could possibly believe what she had just said, Roberts wrapped up the segment as if she had just made a perfectly reasonable statement.

Hollywood is quick to condemn the sins of others, but clues keep appearing that Tinsel Town has its own dark secret hiding behind the façade of glitz and glamour – child sex abuse. In an interview with the Sunday Times, actor Elijah Wood claimed pedophiles are being protected by powerful individuals within the movie industry. Best known for his role as Frodo in the Lord of the Rings films, Wood said that “something major [is] going on in Hollywood.”

The networks have not shown a great interest in holding the Obama administration accountable for the Veterans Affairs scandal, but will they notice a gaffe by VA Secretary Robert McDonald?

Gun-grabbing Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper enjoyed softball questions on Monday as the co-hosts of CBS This Morning uncritically hyped his gun control moves in the state and talked him up as a potential vice president to Hillary Clinton. Attempting to spin Hickenlooper as a moderate, Charlie Rose touted, “What's the difficulty in explaining, on the one hand, that certain kinds of guns you don't want people to be able to get, you want certain procedures and at the same time saying you do not want to do away with the Second Amendment?”

On Sunday's Last Week Tonight, HBO's John Oliver blamed oil prices for the current chaos in Venezuela: "What is wrong with Venezuela? Well, the short answer is everything. The low price of oil, which accounts for 96 percent of Venezuela's exports, has triggered an economic collapse — causing massive inflation and shortages of food and medicine." While Oliver rightly mocked Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, he failed to point out the role of the authoritarian leader's socialist policies in crippling the economy there.
