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.”

In its ongoing coverage of the sheriff’s deputy from Harris County, Texas being shot Friday night outside a gas station, Monday’s edition of the CBS Evening News criticized the slain officer’s boss for making “controversial statements” about the Black Lives Matter movement that “some have called...insensitive.”

On Monday night, all three of the major broadcast networks covered the impending release of more e-mails from Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server, but largely kept their coverage to a minimum before moving onto dissecting the latest 2016 polls on the Republican and Democratic sides. All told, the networks spent one minute and 42 seconds on Clinton’s e-mails and news that 150 of them have been retroactively deemed classified while Spanish-language network Univision spent devoted a 25-second news brief to the issue.

When it comes to conservatives, liberal media types are lately really letting their snobbery show. On Monday, it was Mike Barnicle's turn to display his disdain. Guest-hosting Bloomberg's With All Due Respect, Barnicle, a regular on MSNBC's Morning Joe, declared: "I would want to live as far away as possible" from the 53 percent of Iowa Republican voters who favor anti-establishment candidates Trump, Carson, Fiorina and Cruz.

In an interview with left-wing Salon columnist D. Watkins for Sunday’s Meet the Press web-based feature Press Pass, moderator Chuck Todd lobbed one softball after another to the controversial commentator. Todd began: “...there is an education that's happening, I think, in white America. Black America knew what was going on between law enforcement and African-Americans. I think white America is getting a taste of it for the very first time....Is this a positive moment in America?”
