Jeff Mason of Reuters and Carol Lee of The Wall Street Journal are the incoming and outgoing presidents of the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA), and drew a load of negative attention from liberal media critics for implying -- in a USA Today op-ed -- an equivalence between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in their attempts to control and manipulate reporters.

Michael Calderone of The Huffington Post (and as he mentioned, Erik Wemple of The Washington Post) insist Donald Trump is far worse for restricting access to reporters he doesn't like.

The Washington Post touted the president’s meeting on “building community trust” with the headline “Inside Obama’s radical experiment in national reconciliation.” Reporters Juliet Eilperin and Wesley Lowery noted that when the meeting met a level of comfort, people spoke their minds. St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman – a Democrat – denounced violent protesters, and somehow Al Sharpton lectured the mayor that no one should be distracting the conversation by being “upset with protesters.”

NPR Supreme Court reporter Nina Totenberg has long been one of the most prominent examples of taxpayer-funded liberal bias. For example, she has a close friendship with ultraliberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who officiated at her second wedding in 2000. So when NPR wanted to discuss the controversy over Ginsburg's un-judicial remarks about Donald Trump, they found her buddy Totenberg to play defense on Wednesday night's All Things Considered:

As he endorsed Hillary Clinton yesterday, Bernie Sanders comforted himself by asserting his campaign had brought the Clintons to creating “the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party.” You wouldn’t find those words in The New York Times on Wednesday, but they did carry this story: “Emerging Republican Platform Goes Far to the Right."

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.

Rolling Stone magazine secured an interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and actually waited several question until dipping into predicting an apocalpyse if Hillary Clinton loses the 2016 election.

The magazine asked if we’re living in a “dystopian science fiction novel,” and Maddow dutifully replied she has been “reading a lot about what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor...”

On Monday morning, Washington Post polling manager Scott Clement offered a new report that a majority of Americans disagreed with the decision not to indict Hillary Clinton over her emailing of classified information. But the people who paid for the ABC News/Washington Post poll could barely notice the result.

Clement’s story has yet to appear in the actual newspaper, and the poll drew just 18 seconds on ABC yesterday morning in the second hour. The new NBC News/Survey Monkey poll also had a question about FBI director James Comey’s public recommendation against an indictment, which NBC News and MSNBC ignored on air.

John Hinderaker at Power Line provocatively argued on Saturday that the Black Lives Matter is “founded on a lie.” Listening to liberals, “many take it for granted that a vastly disproportionate number of blacks are involved in police shootings–in fact, if you didn’t know better, you might think that only blacks are ever shot by policemen.”

It’s not just NBC Out that’s pushing the LGBT gospel in network TV-land. CNN is competing in the culture wars as well against “ignorant church” folk. Thomas Page at CNN.com pushed this article last week: “Tchinda Andrade: Cape Verde's transgender hero.” A man is the “mother hen” of the trans community in that African island country.

NPR.org published an article on Friday headlined “Abdul Sattar Edhi, Known As 'Pakistan's Mother Teresa,' Dies At 88.” Edhi was a Muslim man, not a Catholic nun, so...NPR didn’t run around looking for his harshest critics as they did for Mother Teresa in 1997.

Charity was a "central tenet of Islam," NPR reported this week, but they turned to leftist Christopher Hitchens in 1997 to decry Mother Teresa and her Catholic "enthusiasm for the dignity of poverty as 'Middle Age theology,' a destructive comfort to keep people poor."

Liberals and their newspapers have a very simplistic formula for analyzing female politicians: you’re either “for women,” or you’re a token of an anti-woman political movement. One of two women will be the next prime minister of Britain, but since they’re in the Conservative Party, who at The Washington Post is happy?

In Saturday’s paper, Post reporter Karla Adam wrote a pejorative article headlined “Women question feminist values of Britain’s next leader.” Adam spends all her time relaying what “some” people (that is, leftists) think is wrong with all this.

When the PBS NewsHour turned to its Friday week-in-review segment with staff pundits David Brooks and Mark Shields, both the pseudoconservative and the liberal agreed that FBI director James Comey’s non-indictment of Hillary Clinton this week was a damaging blow to her credibility. But then Shields said something bizarre.

Clinton appeared for an interview with NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff where she doubled down on all her lies about her e-mail practices. Shields professed shock, since he thought “I thought there was going to be a start of almost a candor offensive.”

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.

In today’s media, patriotic conventions are embarrassing....but pride the promotion of homosexuality (and bisexuality, and transgenderism) is the new fad. The same people who eschew patriotism or ban flag pins on camera openly wave the rainbow flag on their websites or sponsor gay-pride events. The leader in this effort seems to be Comcast/NBC Universal.

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.

The new July 11 edition of People magazine set a side a page for "The Man Behind Brexit," Boris Johnson, the "Donald Trump doppelganger." The photo makes Boris look like a boozy bumpkin (or Trumpkin). 
 
According to People writer Simon Perry, his Trumpesque tactic is fear-mongering: "Johnson, 52, shares more than just a hairstyle with America's presumptive Republican nominee. Like Trump he stokes nationalist sentiment and fear of open immigration."

CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour has doubled down on her shameless advocacy in hounding conservative British politician Daniel Hannan about the “Brexit.” Of course, the Iranian-born cosmopolitan thinks all the leftist experts were right, just as she hailed the election of President Obama in 2008 as resembling " a foreign country having its first-ever democratic election."

The CNN headline was “Brexit: Truth, myths and media 'neutrality'” – as if number one was Amanpour’s world, and the conservatives were the party of “myths.” Hence, so-called “neutrality” is appalling, since it is non-committal on “truth” and “facts.”

CNN’s John Blake perfectly encapsulated one thing that outrages white Americans in the Obama era. The country elects a black president, and yet this only proves that racism is just as bad now...as when Emmett Till was beaten to death and then shot in the Jim Crow era for allegedly whistling at a white woman.  

Blake, a "CNN Enterprise writer/producer," wrote a very tendentious commentary titled “What black America won't miss about Obama.” The answer is they won’t miss a massive outpouring of white racism attached to Obama.

The New York Times appears to be playing games again with conservative authors, trying to keep them off its vaunted (and secretively manipulated) Best Sellers list. This has happened to Ted Cruz, to Dinesh D’Souza, and to David Limbaugh.

This case is more ironic: Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel has a new book out called The Intimidation Game: How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech.
