A Wall Street Journal columnist had strong words for the NY attorney general’s fight against ExxonMobil. “Their whole schtick now is to find enemies, and attack the enemies,” Journal columnist Holman Jenkins said of the climate change movement on Squawk Box Aug. 31.

Of the three morning shows on Thursday, it was CBS that defaulted to the automatic assumption that Donald Trump was lying about a discussion with Mexico’s President. ABC and NBC presented the debate over whether the businessman brought up the wall with Enrique Pena Nieto as an open question. On CBS This Morning, however, Major Garrett flatly declared, “Trump mislead reporters, however, by saying Mexican financing of a border wall did not come up.”

Researchers from a government funded climate change group claim man-made global warming started in the 1830s, and liberal media have latched on. “Human-caused climate change has been happening for a lot longer than we thought, scientists say,” The Washington Post declared Aug. 24.

Donald Trump made a trip down to Mexico Wednesday to meet with President Enridue Pena Nieto. The two discussed the current state of US-Mexico relations, and it seems to have gone well. But following their evening news report of Trump’s visit, CBS took the time to highlight Latino-American’s mobilizing against Trump. “Immigration activists loaded into a van and headed to a local registration office where they helped Latino residents register to vote,” reported Mireya Villarreal, “For them, this election is personal.”

You know you’re about to read a truly amazing article when it references “black Jesus” and “the plantation,” by the first paragraph. NFL legend Jerry Rice was accused of "urging Colin Kaepernick to stand up like a good Negro and pledge allegiance to the flag before he causes trouble on the plantation." It ended with "stick to shutting up, Rice."

During a live interview on Wednesday with Republican vice presidential nominee and Indiana Governor Mike Pence on CNN's New Day, host Alisyn Camerota recalled that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto once hyperbolically likened Donald Trump's anti-Mexico rhetoric to that of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, before she then essentially asked if the GOP presidential nominee would apologize to the Mexican president for provoking the negative reaction.

During the early years of the Iraq war, the so-called Pottery Barn rule -- “you break it, you buy it” -- became a common expression inside the Beltway. Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall suggested on Monday that something like the Pottery Barn rule describes what’s happened to the Republican party: conservative media wrecked it and now, along with Donald Trump, control what’s left of it. “The rightwing media echo-chamber created a framework in which you are immediately discredited if you do not subscribe to a series of demonstrably false claims, non-facts and theories…all leaving the party ungovernable and vulnerable to a takeover by someone like Donald Trump,” declared Marshall.

In a major story broke by the New York Post Wednesday, it came to light that Hillary Clinton had sent an e-mail from her private server containing classified material months after she left office. According to the Post the message contained information about the “123 Deal” with the United Arab Emirates but, “was heavily redacted upon its release by the State Department because it contains classified information.” And as would be expected, the ABC, CBS, and NBC took a pass on the shocking new development during their evening news programs.

The current episode of Chelsea is titled “It Felt Like Racist WrestleMania” and that is exactly how her guest Hasan Minhaj described attending the Republican National Convention. He went in "white face" make-up as his alter-ego “Chad Smith” just for grins – and because all Republicans are scary racists in his fragile little liberal world. Can you imagine a Republican pulling such a stunt and the outrage that would follow?

“Peña Nieto was not ready for Trump,” tweeted Univision anchor Jorge Ramos in the wake of the Republican presidential candidate’s surprise visit with Mexican President Enrique Peña-Nieto.

Amidst all the news coverage about Donald Trump’s trip to Mexico on Wednesday, there was one other major story in Latin America as Brazil removed its corrupt and far-left President for questionable behavior with the country’s finances. Of course, it nearly saw nary a mention on the broadcast network evening newscasts as ABC and CBS were out to lunch on Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment.

The Washington Post’s desperate spin on the collapse of the Weiner-Abedin marriage is even more desperate than the last time Weiner was caught sexting. Chris “There Is No Pro-Hillary Bias” Cillizza wrote a petulant article headlined “Anthony Weiner is gross. Let’s stop paying attention to him.” And which candidate does that help, hmm?
Earth to Chris: You were ignoring him. For months on end. Until he was exposed for exposing himself again, and the Wife dumped him. That's one of many examples of a pro-Hillary bias in the media elite.

As he’s been known to do from time-to-time, Fox News Channel (FNC) anchor Shepard Smith flashed his liberal tilt on Wednesday afternoon in reading a simple news brief about the Supreme Court putting a stay on North Carolina’s voter I.D. law by lamenting that, in his book, such laws are intended to discourage minorities from voting. The 33-second news brief started off fairly innocent with Smith explaining that “we’ve just gotten an AP news alert out of the State of North Carolina” before reading the headline from the Associated Press.

Sometimes it seems that people who write editorials or columns for the mainstream media really have to struggle to come up with new and interesting topics to discuss. That seems to be the case with Frank Bruni, a New York Times columnist whose latest missive is entitled “Donald Trump's Irredeemable Twin.”
It may be hard to believe, but Bruni actually attempted to compare the Republican presidential candidate to Democrat Anthony Weiner, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives whose three scandals have involved “sexting” or sending explicit sexual material by cell phone.
