With the first presidential debate right around the corner CNN’s Brian Stelter amped up his call for debate moderators to be fact-checkers, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources. Of course, most of his concern is focused on Donald Trump with Hillary Clinton being an afterthought, seeing as he lambasted NBC’s Matt Lauer for not doing it. “Does a unique candidate like Donald Trump require a different kind of moderating,” Stelter inquired to veteran debate moderator Jim Lehrer.

On display Sunday morning was the latest example of how the dominant media are grossly misinforming viewers on the issue of police shootings and the issue of race as veteran singer Harry Belafonte claimed that "all" of those being "murdered" are "black or African-American."

Appearing as a guest on PoliticsNation on MSNBC to plug his upcoming event promoting liberal activism, host Al Sharpton referred to current protests and asked about "the criminal justice challenge that you've outlined, in terms of black men and shootings," leading Belafonte to lament: "I think that you cannot just go about -- if it's once or twice, you can say it's an accident and a coincidence. But when you have as large a population of murdered young men in the streets of America and they're all black or African-American descent, I think there's somebody sending us a message, and we should respond to that message."

The Sunday before the first presidential debate of 2016 was filled with analysis and speculation about how the candidates were going to perform.

MRC President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News, Saturday, to discuss the newly leaked e-mails of NBC and MSNBC journalist Andrea Mitchell decrying Donald Trump’s nomination as “awful.” Talking to Cost of Freedom host Neil Cavuto, Bozell sarcastically replied, “Be still my heart at the revelation.”

On Thursday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, during a discussion of recent high-profile cases of black suspects being shot and killed by police, panel member April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks made a blatantly wrong claim that the "vast majority" of criminal suspects who were killed by police officers in 2015 were black. In fact, the source that she actually cited -- the Washington Post -- found that twice as many whites as blacks were killed by the police in 2015.

Despite the blatant misinformation, neither host Chuck Todd nor the other two panel members -- Matt Bai of Yahoo News and Perry Bacon of NBC News -- took the time to correct her as all three either did not notice or just let the claim go without dispute. Bacon notably ended up plugging Hillary Clinton on the issue of establishing "national standards" and requiring "implicit bias training" for local police officers.

Hollywood leaning left is the ultimate "dog bites man" narrative. That’s been the way the industry has worked for some time. It intensifies during an election year, of course. This …. is different. We’re seeing a multi-front attack on Red State America, the likes of which we simply haven’t witnessed before. Blame Donald Trump, our safe space age or how social media turns nearly every aspect of our lives into an ALL CAPS affair.

In what is clear reversion to form, Univision has chosen to air one-sided coverage that could best be described as Islamist apologia. The most recent instance comes in the wake of the terrorist attack at a shopping center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Weatherman Al Roker proclaimed: “Lester Holt is moderating it, and if there's anybody who can withstand the pressure and be down the middle and cool and calm and take this thing on, it is Lester Holt.”

A day after the Media Research Center’s 2016 Gala, MRC president Brent Bozell dropped by Fox Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast to Coast to provide his predictions of the first presidential debate as well as slam the left for already “working the refs” using a page from “the Clinton playbook” dating back to the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky scandals.

In a year marked by many profoundly stupid comments by liberal celebrities, HBO’s Bill Maher emerged as the winner of the “Celebrity Dumbass Award” for the Media Research Center’s 2016 DisHonors Awards, Thursday night. Most definitely earning the award’s title, the Real Time host sneered that the Constitution “sucks” and that it “needs a page one re-write.”
