Deeming it not pertinent for their viewership, ABC’s World News Tonight refused to cover on Tuesday night the latest round of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails being released by the State Department despite having briefly reported on them on Monday hours before they were actually released. Joining ABC in their zero coverage of Clinton was Spanish-language network Telemundo (which also failed to mention the scandal on Monday’s Noticiero Telemundo before the e-mails were made public).

Have conservatives caused the liberal media to totally crack up and reveal their utter contempt for those who disagree with them?  In recent days we've seen Mike Barnicle declare that he wants to live "as far away as possible" from anti-establishment Republican voters, and Sirius host John Fugelsang contemptously call conservatives "rubes" that Fox News labors to keep in its "paddock."

The cavalcade of liberal contempt for conservatives continued on Chris Hayes' MSNBC show tonight, as Esquire's Charlie Pierce described the Republican Iowa caucuses as being controlled "by a freakish minority of a freakish Republican party."

The "Pigs in a blanket. Fry 'em like bacon!" chant by Black Lives Matter activists this weekend at the Minnesota State Fair was taken out of context, an organizer told MSNBC's Chris Hayes tonight, insisting that the chant was sort of an inside joke, in a "playful" context between activists and the cops who were escorting the marchers.

During Monday morning's edition of the Fox & Friends program, co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked black guest Kevin Jackson: “Why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group?”

The segment drew a tremendous negative online response, with one of the most unusual coming from Hasselbeck's former co-host on The View ABC program, who tweeted that “some r slow 2 wake.”

Fretting over Hillary Clinton’s ongoing e-mail scandal on Tuesday, MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell wondered: “Is she ever going to get out of this cycle?” The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza bemoaned: “...when the federal judge ordered the release of these things at pretty regular intervals....this was the worst outcome for her presidential hopes....We're not talking about her plan for college affordability. We're not talking about energy. We're not talking about income inequality.”

Tuesday's New Day on CNN completely glossed over the fact that 150 out of 7,000 pages from the latest release of Hillary Clinton's e-mail from her tenure as secretary of state contained classified information. Instead, John Berman wildly claimed that "as far as I can tell, nothing in here that reeks of illegality in what we're seeing here." Alisyn Camerota wondered, "If there's no smoking gun, when does the e-mail issue go away?" Nia-Malika Henderson even asserted that "in some ways, these e-mails, kind of, help, because there's no 'there' there."

Atlantic magazine editor Steve Clemons spun Hillary Clinton's use of a private, unsecured e-mail server as the natural, "defensive" reaction to being "under political assault" by people like Ken Starr. On Tuesday's Andrea Mitchell Reports, the MSNBC contributor exonerated: "We don't know exactly what the rational is, but there was a certain defensiveness that makes a lot of sense when you look back at how under assault the Clintons have been."

With the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal ongoing, on Tuesday, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning assured viewers that the Democratic front-runner was in no “legal jeopardy.” On Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie asked Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd: “I mean, the central accusation, what people are worried about, is did she mishandle classified information?...is there a smoking gun on that issue?” Todd replied: “No, there's not.”

The journalists on Good Morning America allowed that "critics" see Hillary Clinton's e-mail controversy as a "national security scandal." However, Martha Raddatz and George Stephanopoulos didn't allow any of these unnamed "critics" on the show. Amy Robach promised, "Her critics calling it a national security scandal. What her e-mails are revealing about her work and family this morning." But even though a graphic noted, "critics calling it a national security scandal," none appeared on GMA.

During Monday’s The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel (FNC), host Megyn Kelly and The Five co-host Dana Perino excoriated the liberal media for committing a double standard in their portrayal of the tea party, which they called racist, compared to the Black Lives Matter movement. Kelly noted the media reluctance to characterize the latter even after protesters chanted that police officers are “pigs in a blanket” who should be “fr[ied] like bacon.”
