Right on cue, Tuesday night’s MSNBC coverage of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) heaped effusive praise on a team of Black Lives Matter mothers whose sons died in police-involved shootings as a “profound experience” for those in attendance just eight days after they trashed Patricia Smith over a speech about her son’s death in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack.

These past two weeks, Univision viewers have witnessed two strikingly different approaches to the initial coverage dedicated to the two major party candidates for Vice President of the United States, Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Virginia Senator Tim Kaine.

On Tuesday's NBC Nightly News, Andrea Mitchell trumpeted the "almost universal praise" for Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention. Mitchell played up how Mrs. Obama's words brought "people to tears about her husband's place in American history," and spotlighted how "even an unlikely source, Donald Trump...'thought she did a very good job.'" She later claimed that the address was "speech so compelling, some wonder whether, despite denials, she could become the second first lady to run for office."

Forgoing much of its regularly scheduled segments to cover live the official nomination of Hillary Clinton for president Tuesday night at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), ABC’s World News Tonight repeatedly harped in the most jittery mood possible about the DNC hall being in “tears” at Clinton becoming the first woman to be a major party’s presidential nominee.

The radical leftist collective known as Wikileaks tried to ruin the Democratic convention by posting a trove of Democratic National Committee e-mails that easily proved that party leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her staff shunned neutrality in favor of pushing Hillary Clinton’s nomination.

The media paid some attention to that, especially when Mrs. Schultz was quickly ousted from her job. Guess what else was confirmed which the media largely skipped over? The evidence in the emails that revealed great chumminess and coordination between Democrats and the supposedly “objective” national press.

If MSNBC journalists last week saw “bloodthirsty” Republican delegates ready to “kill” at the GOP convention, they imagine nothing but love at Hillary Clinton’s crowning. Rachel Maddow on Tuesday hailed the roll call vote as the “best TV in years.” A hyperbolic Chris Matthews blurbed, “Move over, Hitchcock.”

Think of the magazine Glamour and naturally thoughts turn to … left-wing politics. The women’s  magazine hosted a Facebook Live conversation with Chelsea Clinton and avid Hillary supporters Lena Dunham and America Ferrara as part of Glamour's 51 million initiative. In this year's election, 51 million women under the age of 45 will be eligible to vote, and Hillary Clinton has an edge with that demographic. Glamour is doing what it can to increase that edge.

The best quote of the event was Chelsea Clinton's impassioned plea that Americans come out to vote, despite gender differences. "So I would just say urgently to every young woman, and yes every young man, um, every person who may not know their gender yet, or may have no gender identity -- whatever you care about is at stake in this election!"

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both spoke to the national convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, but CNN took clear sides in their coverage (or lack thereof) of their addresses. On Monday, the liberal network aired 19 minutes and 20 seconds of Mrs. Clinton's speech uninterrupted during the 11 am Eastern hour. The news channel didn't break away to carry any of Trump's speech during the 9 am Eastern hour on Tuesday. Instead, CNN went to correspondent Sara Murray, who reported live while the billionaire gave his speech.

On Tuesday's New Day, CNN political analyst David Gregory inadvertently admitted to living in a liberal social bubble by declaring that he had never met anybody who supports Donald Trump's proposal to build a wall on the border with Mexico -- which the CNN analyst and former NBC anchor derided as a "stupid wall."

Appearing as a panel member on Tuesday's special edition of Inside Politics, CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson warned that "a lot of people" believe that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's invocation of "law and order" has a "racist undertone." Moments later, she went on to assert that the election is "all about race in a lot of ways," before backing off slightly by adding that "at least a lot of people think that.

Radical-left actress/activist Susan Sarandon was probably feeling too much of a “Bern” at the DNC convention this past Monday.  The longtime Bernie Sanders supporter called out the Democratic National Committee for their “disgusting” conduct which was revealed this past weekend thanks to WikiLeaks posting thousands of DNC staff emails.

New on July 25: ABC’s George Stephanopoulos helped keep alive the false belief that one-time presidential candidate and segregationist Alabama Gov. George Wallace was a Republican, not a proud Democrat. On ABC’s This Week, Congressman Keith Ellison asserted: “We do have the worst Republican nominee since George Wallace.” Without offering a correction, host Stephanopoulos moved on to a question to another guest.

In a new video released by Humanity for Hillary, celebs made a feminist plea for voting more women into office. And yes, #ThisIsWhatMyRevolutionLooksLike was a shameless plug for Hillary.

The advocacy group's website calls itself a "progressive collective of activists and artists creating smart, human strategies to counter false negatives about Hillary Clinton and communicate her truth." (Get that? “her truth.”) Further down the page, the site reads: "We strongly want more women, more people of color, and more Democrats in office." Of course they do, and that's just who they highlighted in their star-studded video.

On Tuesday’s The View, host Whoopi Goldberg openly admitted that she couldn't care less if the DNC rigged the system, because it was at the expense of “a white guy.” After revealing emails broke last Friday showing DNC officials had conspired to defeat Bernie Sanders, the ladies at The View became angry at Sanders supporters disrupting the Democratic Convention with their booing. Whoopi became enraged and ranted that they should be supporting Hillary Clinton because, “[The system] has been rigged against women for years!”

As the media swooned over First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech to the Democratic National Convention Monday night and applauded her defense of America’s “greatness,” journalists seemed to suffer from collective amnesia as they forgot Mrs. Obama’s controversial revelation that she was “proud” of the country for the “first time” during her husband’s 2008 presidential run.
