Comedy Central frustrated racial bean-counters across America when it abruptly canceled The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore for the obvious reason: it wasn't "resonating." Its ratings were terrible, and nothing it aired went viral.  It was a desperate stretch when one Wilmore staffer described their audience as "small, but mighty." 

NPR TV critic Eric Deggans leaped to the microphone to pound the Affirmative Action hard line: had Comedy Central's audience "ultimately rejected a black man talking boldly about race in late night television?"

The media coverage of the presidential race is so tilted to the Democrats that even liberal analysts feel obliged to declare it. USA Today media columnist Michael Wolff asserted that this campaign isn't between Trump and Clinton. It's between Trump and the media that have turned against him in a big way. "Now, appalled by their own creation, the media have become, with quite some religious fervor, the defender of truth, justice, morality and proper public behavior, all focused on (Trump's) undoing."

Civility and political decorum demand that one should never pick on a president's family. Presidential children did not choose the career of their parents. Their privacy should not only be respected, it should be actively protected.

Pretty much the entire media observed this rule perfectly when Radar Online published blurry pictures of 18-year-old Malia Obama puffing some sort of cigarette at a Lollapalooza concert in Chicago on July 31. Radar’s 18-year-old eyewitness cried “weed.” Video also showed Malia dancing suggestively to a rap song.The press refused to touch the story. Praiseworthy? Yes – if you’re willing to applaud media hypocrisy.

When The Washington Post puts its top investigative reporters on the beat of the distant youth of presidential candidates, there's no telling what student scandal that they might uncover. In 2012, the Post devoted a 5,400-word front-page article to breaking the news that at 17, "Romney's pranks could go too far." He was accused of giving a classmate at Cranbrook Academy an involuntary haircut, and this was invested with deep meaning across his life.

In 2016, the Post investigators celebrated Hillary Rodham Clinton's 1969 gave a commencement speech insulting liberal Republican Sen. Edward Brooke as too conservative, too out of touch. It was a "moment of glory," the Post proclaimed, the culmination of what "her campaign now describes as social justice activism."

The Olympics are only the latest event where our elites mistake diversity for “history.” One breakout star across the TV networks was Ibtihaj Muhammad, a 30-year-old fencer from New Jersey. A traditionalist Catholic woman from Maryland would register a collective yawn. A black Muslim woman in a hijab gets a perfect 10 from the diversity judges.

ABC reporter Matt Gutman gushed she was “set to become the first US woman ever to compete at the Olympics wearing a hijab. And she wasn't at all en garde, sorry for the pun, for breaking barriers and slashing her way into history.”

New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg was granted front-page real estate in the August 8 newspaper for an essay on "The Challenge Trump Poses to Objectivity." As with all things revolving around this candidate, this is a Crisis demanding Deep Thinking.

Rutenberg asks: "If you're a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation's worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?"

Sex-crazed radio shock jock Howard Stern has an impossible new fantasy that he can’t keep to himself: He wants an in-depth interview with Hillary Clinton. Stern, who left broadcast radio for satellite radio so he could be as raunchy as possible, to make his millions dwelling on the lowest common denominator for the demographic Men 18-34, has a less-than-zero chance of scoring a Hillary interview. The risk-averse woman who hasn’t held a press conference yet in 2016 isn’t going to upset her every feminist supporter by pleasing Howard Stern.

It’s an ironclad principle. Media coverage of the quadrennial Republican and Democratic conventions is a laboratory exercise to demonstrate how shamelessly partisan our political reporters truly are. It is a metaphysical truth: the networks engage in a partisan double standard. They've done it for decades.

For more than a year, the cable-news networks have feasted on Donald Trump, covering him live, day after day, for hours and hours. Republican contenders couldn’t hope to get a fraction of his TV time. Now that Trump’s secured the nomination, is it possible that the networks will “suddenly” lose interest in every Trump speech?

It certainly looked that way when Trump spoke to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention. CNN gave Hillary 19 minutes of live coverage. Trump got zero. They promoted Democrats while he was talking.

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.

The Republican convention’s rowdy chants about Hillary Clinton -- “Lock her up!” – have caused liberal journalists to get extremely distressed. In their lead editorial on July 21, The Washington Post fulminated that Team Trump’s “descent from standard red-meat partisanship to unprecedented accusations of criminality displays contempt for the rule of law and a startling disinterest in fact and reason.”

That’s strong brew. It’s too bad for them that it’s completely false. Somehow, the Post writers are acting like they were born yesterday, or slept through the last Republican presidency. They’ve chosen to overlook that their liberal friends in news and entertainment were active participants in an eight-year anti-GOP hatefest.

When FBI director James Comey came before the press to deliver his bizarre proclamation that Hillary Clinton had lied relentlessly about her private e-mail server, but shouldn't be prosecuted because no prosecutor would ever dare take her to court, except prosecutors all over the country rose to say they'd do so immediately, many were shocked and angered. One industry was thoroughly embarrassed: the media-elite "fact checker" websites and projects, from PolitiFact.com to FactCheck.org to the "Fact Checker" column at The Washington Post.

In the wake of the Dallas police murders, Hollywood liberals like Lena Dunham have targeted....action movie posters. On social media, Dunham boosted a crusade to remove the gun from Matt Damon’s hand in New York subway ads for the latest Jason Bourne movie. 
 
Since the Left insists on diverting attention from the cold-blooded murder of Dallas policemen, let’s turn instead to this other piece of Texas news that will put gun-hating, Planned Parenthood-boosting feminists like Dunham in their proper perspective.

When white racist Dylann Roof shot and killed nine people in a black church in Charleston, it was very easy for President Obama and his media enablers to paint with a broad brush and blame the broader political culture. Bill Maher even blamed Fox News and the Daily Caller and the Drudge Report.

But when black racist Micah Johnson gunned down five cops and wounded seven others in Dallas, suddenly the motivation was complicated, and couldn't be blamed on a "climate" of hostile rhetoric.

It didn't used to be — that's a phrase we use a lot these days, isn't it? — but the Fourth of July festivities bring out the angriest guff from the left. In 1991 Boston Globe arts critic (and aspiring poet) Patricia Smith decided to refashion the national anthem in the leftist rag The Nation.

It's a paradox. The liberal media champion themselves as the most open-minded people on planet Earth, with a devotion to the freedom of speech. How can intelligent people be so wrong? In reality, liberal elites have a nasty tendency to dismiss “conservative thought” as an oxymoron. They don’t read conservative books or magazines, and they wouldn’t lower themselves to watching conservatives on television. They have disdain for conservative talk radio. They're virtually illiterate on conservatives and conservatism.

There are those boorish moments when the celebrity takes to the podium of an awards show to deliver leftist political drivel. We can’t decide which is worse: the predictable, America-hating garbage, or the journalistic hosannas that inevitably follow.
      
The other day, Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams launched into a “Black Lives Matter” sermon at the BET Awards when he won an award for his “humanitarian” work. Accepting the honors, Williams broke out the radical-leftist claptrap about this “invention” of abusive whiteness, exploiting all the creative blackness.

CNN's Reliable Sources offered a panel discussion on June 26 asking if Americans are so apathetic to the truth that our politics have entered a "post-fact check phase." This is a reference to Donald Trump, of course. The media believe he's a liar and gets away with it because of public apathy. What these journalists will never concede, however, is that Democrats get away with dishonesty because of their own apathy. Hillary Clinton's obscene lie about landing in sniper fire in Bosnia is a distant memory.

After weeks of indecision, ABC decided on May 12 it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom The Real O'Neals, loosely based on the childhood of vehement gay sex columnist Dan Savage. But then Noah Galvin, a 22-year-old gay actor playing the fictional version of Savage, gave an interview to New York magazine's Vulture blog that was so rude that The Hollywood Reporter said ABC was reconsidering its options, like reducing the number of episodes ordered for Season 2.

An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," said a source to The Hollywood Reporter. One show source added: "He caused a grade-A s--t show. ABC screamed at him all afternoon."

In the wake of the Trump wrecking crane, President Obama’s approval ratings have risen above 50 percent. The media see greater appreciation for his “competence” in office – but why? In the wake of the Orlando attack, it’s easy to ask “How competent would the media make President Bush appear if an Islamic terrorist shot up a gay nightclub in Florida eight years ago?”

It seemed like every piece of bad news in the Bush years was somehow Bush’s fault, and proof of his incompetence. But absolutely no one in the media wonders for two seconds if Obama looks incompetent when a terrorist calls the cops to declare himself an ally of ISIS and shoots more than 100 people, killing 49.
