Amidst a mind-numbingly naive discussion about the Clintons on ABC’s the View Friday, the panel inadvertently got extremely close to the truth. After Trump threatened to bring up Gennifer Flowers and Monica Lewinsky in the next debate, the panel decided to talk about whether or not Hillary Clinton should be called out on that issue. While Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin eagerly defended Hillary for “trashing” the women Bill “slept with,” Bila was quick to note that sexual assault and rape were not the same as an affair. GMA’s Sara Haines then wondered aloud if Hillary did, in fact, know about her husband’s “activities,” but had a business agreement, ala House of Cards to deny any culpability. Of course this comment was immediately ignored.

Just like ABC’s interviews with VPs Mike Pence and Tim Kaine on Monday morning, this week’s interviews with the two presidential campaign managers were staggeringly different from each other. On Tuesday’s The View, the panel barely made Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook sweat, but pummelled Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Thursday with harsh questions. Completely serious, Whoopi actually remarked at the end of the program that they treat every guest "fair" and with uncomfortable questions. But watching the two interviews side-by-side, that's a far cry from reality.

While a meme comparing both presidential candidates to Harry Potter villains is going viral, the media only cares about demonizing one candidate. After the popular book series’ author J.K. Rowling called Donald Trump, worse than Voldemort, the media have been eagerly trying to get Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe to bash Trump as well.

On Tuesday’s morning news shows, each of the three network anchors interviewed the two vice presidential candidates, Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, about their running mate’s debate performance Monday night. But instead of asking the candidates similar questions, the anchors coaxed Clinton’s VP Kaine and grilled Trump’s VP Pence.

On Monday’s CBS This Morning, anchor Charlie Rose asked Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook a blunt and straightforward question about the Democratic candidate’s weaknesses, which is a rarity in the morning media world. After Rose asked Mook if Clinton was going to be on the offensive or defensive in the debate, he followed up by asking if there was any way Clinton could improve her record of trustworthiness with voters, in one debate, anyway.

Appearing as a guest on Saturday's Smerconish show on CNN, former ABC News anchor Carole Simpson -- who was a presidential debate moderator in 1992 -- fretted that NBC's Lester Holt will not be aggressive enough in pressing GOP candidate Donald Trump, and will perhaps devote too much time to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified email as Secretary of State.

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. 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.

On Thursday's The Situation Room, CNN personalities were in overdrive throwing around accusations of racism toward Donald Trump's base of support within the Republican party during a panel discussion. Senior political analyst Jeffrey Toobin repeated the recurring charge that "law and order" represents "code words for cracking down on African-Americans," claimed Republicans are engaging in  "voter suppression," and accused Trump's "base" of being "sick and tired of African-Americans trying to get political power in this country."

Thursday morning Funny or Die published a comedic skit with Hillary Clinton and today journalists and celebrities are gushing about it on Twitter. The liberal comedic group founded by actor Will Ferrell, frequently mocks conservatives and Christians while promoting liberal ideas and politicians in a satirical way. In 2014, Zach Galifianakis’ interview with President Obama for the show went viral and apparently now it’s Hillary’s turn to get the same fawning attention from the media.

Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, TheRoot.com political editor and Morgan State University professor Jason Johnson -- a recurring guest on CNN -- suggested that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump "continually associates himself with terrorist organizations like the Klan" as he responded to Trump's appearance at a black church in Ohio.

Johnson has a history of making incendiary accusations of racism against Republicans, and this past weekend appeared in a soundbite on the NBC Nightly News in which he cracked that Trump's base consists of "white voters, white voters, and white voters." TheRoot.com notably was acquired last year by Univision.

On Tuesday's New Day, CNN co-host Chris Cuomo not only showed a double standard in aggressively debating GOP Rep. Sean Duffy on the issue of restricting immigration from Muslim countries while going more softly on Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, but he also tried to downplay the odds of refugees committing terrorist acts as he misleadingly recalled the findings of the libertarian CATO Institute on the subject of risk to Americans posed by refugees.

Tuesday’s The View began with host Whoopi Goldberg repeating the lie CNN appeared to start that Trump called for racial profiling. The panel then spent the first quarter of the show debating the validity of racial profiling. As usual, liberal co-hosts Whoopi and Joy Behar frequently took the topic at hand to absurdity, with Whoopi comparing it to civil rights in the ‘50s/’60s, claiming America would never again face another 9/11, and asking, if we should “start profiling all the white people” because of “all the domestic terrorism.”
