Politifact, the leftist propaganda mill disguised as a "fact-checking" web site, always has its "Pants on Fire" matches at the ready for conservatives and Republicans. This is remarkable, given that it has never given any Hillary Clinton statement or campaign assertion a "Pants on Fire" evaluation. The one example it cites falsely claims to "involve" her, but has nothing to do with anything she or anyone in her campaign said.

One of the latest outrages concerns the web site's obvious problem with accepting the realities behind the January 1981 resolution of the Iran hostage crisis. GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio made an obviously true claim about the timing of the hostages' release after 444 days, namely that it occurred as Reagan took the oath of office on January 20 of that year. He further stated that the Iranians knew that America would "no longer (be) under the command of someone weak."

On Tuesday, a federal judge who was appointed by President Obama himself ordered the Obama/Lynch Justice Department to turn over documents related to the "Fast and Furious" gunwalking scandal which the administration was claiming were exempt from congressional review because of executive privilege.

None of the Big Three broadcast network evening newscasts so much as mentioned the development.

Tuesday night offered a classic study of the liberal media and what draws their attention as the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC and the Spanish-language networks of Telemundo and Univision all censored from their evening newscasts any mention of a massive development in the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal in favor of ten minutes and 31 seconds of coverage across five segments on Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race.

In the "Tell Me Something I Don't Know" segment of Tuesday's edition of Hardball, Mother Jones magazine's David Corn informed MSNBC host Chris Matthews that the Democratic National Committee was wracked with a "tremendous amount of regret in the high ranks of the" party organization that they had limited the primary debates so much.

To hear the press tell it, the Republican Party has gone so far to the right that Ronald Reagan wouldn’t recognize it. But the Democratic Party is at this moment on the cusp of forsaking Hillary Clinton for a self-described socialist who wants America to be exactly like Sweden. So precisely which party is making a historic tilt toward a new extreme?

Never, ever trust the liberal media to put politicians on a mainstream-to-extreme political scale. In their minds, Nancy Pelosi sits on the center line of the political fulcrum. By that measurement, Jeb Bush looks like a fire-breathing extremist. And Ted Cruz, the original Cro-Magnon.

Donald Trump, for all his bluster and controversy, could actually win over the suburban vote in blue Northeastern states, Hardball host Chris Matthews argued on tonight's program. It's just too bad for him, he added, that throwing his arms around the Sarah Palin endorsement could kill those chances since "thoughtful" "pro-choice" women in those New England suburbs would see Palin's embrace as a deal killer.

On Tuesday, ABC’s World News Tonight didn’t find it pertinent to inform their millions of viewers that the Supreme Court decided hours earlier that it will hear a case concerning the legality of President Obama’s executive amnesty after having worked its way up through the federal court system. Amidst the media obsession with Donald Trump, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News found 23 and 19 seconds, respectively, to allude to this news from the Supreme Court in separate news briefs.

Appearing on Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Last Word, former Clinton and Bush administration diplomat Hillary Mann Leverett gushed that what President Obama has achieved with Iran is “[s]imilar to what President Nixon did with China” and “profoundly important, strategically grounded diplomacy” whereas George W. Bush “showed weakness on the world stage” with the Iraq War.

Could it be ... is it remotely possible ... that MSNBC might eventually become a legitimate news organization? Odds are that this can't happen since the network's unshakeable leftist ideology would, by its inherently intolerant nature, not allow for the inevitable demands of objective journalism.

On Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose led off the broadcast by triumphantly announcing: “Protesters demand Michigan's governor resign over a toxic war crisis. He admits it is his Hurricane Katrina."

A new third party Google Chrome extension that gives its users the chance to block out any mention of Donald Trump from their Internet browsing experience was the subject of totally favorable coverage on Noticiero Telemundo.  The filter is clearly being promoted as a tool that can further assist in the Left’s efforts to demagogue Trump within the Spanish-speaking Latino community.

Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne appeared on Morning Joe Tuesday morning to promote his new book Why the Right Went Wrong. He expressed horror at the idea of a Republican president with the doomsday claim: “It will be just like Herbert Hoover! And we saw what happened after that!”

Liberal MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow and liberal Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne on Monday delighted in mocking the affinity conservatives have for Ronald Reagan, dismissing his record as “fake.” Promoting Dionne’s new book, Maddow introduced, “Ronald Reagan's real record has been submarined and all of his faults and compromises have been ascribed to other people and not to him.”

A twist on the old idea of Satan is coming to your living room this month from Fox, and if that bothers you, you’ll get no sympathy from The Daily Beast. The Daily Beast’s Matthew Paul Turner dismissed those who have criticized Lucifer the new Fox primetime show premiering on January 25.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota pressed former New York Governor George Pataki on Tuesday's New Day over Ted Cruz's "New York values" attack on Donald Trump. Camerota noted how Pataki asserted that Cruz "was obviously referring to the liberal values of New York politicians," but wondered, "Wasn't he also talking about...regular New Yorkers?" When the Republican politician denied this was the case, the anchor followed up by asking, "The people of New York voted these politicians in. So, isn't there some smear that they, too, are morally bankrupt?"
