Amidst all the overwhelming media coverage gushing over President Barack Obama’s Wednesday night speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), there were a few points during MSNBC’s coverage in the early hours of Thursday that couldn’t go by without being chronicled for NewsBusters readers.

With both the Republican and Democratic conventions now concluded, it’s time to judge the news media on how fairly they covered the two parties. Media Research Center analysts looked at various aspects of coverage, all of which demonstrate that journalists obviously favored the Democratic gathering.

After having had a great time piecing together a list for readers of some crazy, surprising, and downright weird moments/statements from MSNBC’s late Monday night/early Tuesday morning coverage of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), I thought it would be an appropriate time to do another one for the DNC’s closing night.

According to Chris Matthews, Donald Trump brings out the “best” in Democrats and prompts them to show “gut patriotism” that has been hidden in the past. On Thursday, Matthews cheered, “[Trump] reminded them of what they believe in, the rights and hopes of immigrants, the freedom of religion in this country, the love of the country itself.”

MSNBC on Thursday night offered a movie trailer-style promo, complete with dramatic music and exciting visuals to tout the “united” Democrats “embracing history.” This is quite the contrast to the opening video to last week’s Republican National Convention. Kicking off the primetime coverage of the Democratic convention, an announcer intoned, “The baton has been passed... A party stands united.”

If the all-star fawning by MSNBC personalities such as Brian Williams and Chris Matthews over President Obama’s DNC speech wasn’t enough, former McCain/Palin campaign manager Steve Schmidt ruled Thursday night that the speech was “one of the most extraordinary political speeches ever given by anyone at any time” and NBC News correspondent/MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell proclaimed that Obama is the best speechwriter president since Abraham Lincoln.

The crew at MSNBC late Wednesday were locked and loaded to respond to President Barack Obam’s speech to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and didn’t disappoint as breaking news anchor Brian Williams informed everyone that “we will not see his kind again” before Rachel Maddow ruled that “[t]here’s nothing else like him” while Hardball host Chris Matthews admitted that “it’s pretty well known I’ve always gone for this guy.”

Unlike Republicans, Democrats don’t “hate.” That incredible claim came from MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Wednesday night came as the Hardball host fawned over the Democratic National Convention. Matthews sneered, “Republicans hate Hillary Clinton. I don't think there's a better word for chemistry-like dislike for her. It's pure. They hate her.”

Over-the-top hyperbole is par for the course at any party's convention, especially when it's former president Bill Clinton extolling the virtues of his wife. But there came a point last night when the former president's gushing for Hillary crossed the line into Twilight-Zone absurdity.

It was clear from the start that Mr. Clinton set a daunting task -- to sell the notion of Hillary as "the best darn change maker I've ever met," a dubious proposition when the subject at hand represents change to the same extent that Leonid Brezhnev did upon assuming power in the Soviet Union.

Every slight is sexist, racist, homophobic, you name it, in the eyes of liberals. Case in point, the media’s overblown response to Donald Trump shushing NBC reporter Katy Tur during Wednesday morning’s press conference. Journalists on Twitter were aghast that Trump dared to interrupt a relentless reporter, while MSNBC’s Tamron Hall likened the exchange to overt sexism, in the age of the first female presidential nominee.

Wednesday on Morning Joe, co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski continued to marvel over the “obvious excitement” at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. While the hosts insisted there was no comparison between the DNC and the RNC, they continued to build up the Democrats by knocking down the Republicans. The liberal hosts painted a picture of an “excited” DNC filled with “history” and “emotion,” compared to an RNC laden with “empty seats” and “sleepwalking.”

While the early Wednesday morning portion of MSNBC’s Democratic National Convention (DNC) coverage wasn’t quite the spectacle it was from the day before, AM Joy host Joy Reid provided two noteworthy instances denouncing Hillary Clinton critics as sexist who complain about her not wearing skirts and predicted that she’s “going to teach us” a lesson about sexism by the end of the election.
