In last week’s season opener of CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge) and Oleg (Jonathan Kite) welcomed baby Barbara into the world. This week’s episode, “And the Godmama Drama,” features the baptism of baby Barbara and the desecration of the sacrament.

The “Big Three” networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) continued their marathon of covering up Democratic scandals and controversies, Monday, by failing to report the prison sentencing of a former Democratic Party “rising star” during their evening broadcasts. “A judge sentenced former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane on Monday to 10 to 23 months in prison for committing multiple felonies stemming from a politically motivated act of retribution,” reported CNN’s Max Blau.

When it was announced that former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter was playing President Olivia Marsdin on season two of Supergirl, I expected not-so-subtle references to a certain not-so-subtle (or honest) presidential candidate Hillary Clinton - and I wasn't disappointed. Not only did she arrive wearing the world’s warmest summer coat like Clinton, this female president also spouted much of the same insane and dangerous rhetoric in the episode “Welcome to Earth.”

The Obama administration finally admitted on Monday what so many critics warned would happen, that premiums were going to skyrocket. And skyrocket did as ABC Anchor David Muir reported on World News Tonight, “A new government report revealing premiums will go up an average of 25 percent next year.” ABC’s report is shocking since they spent most of 2016 keeping the program’s collapse a secret. In contrast, their competitors CBS and NBC remained tight lipped about the bad news on their evening programs.
MRC's Tim Graham: Media's 'Jedi Mind Trick' Is Saying Hillary's Won, Creating a 'Self-Fulfilling Prophecy'By NB Staff | | October 24, 2016 | 11:10 PM EDT
NewsBusters Executive Editor Tim Graham appeared Monday night on the Fox Business program Risk and Reward to discuss the media's new spin that the election is now over and Hillary Clinton is looking ahead to being president. Graham lamented the early declaration of a Hillary victory, that the media is playing "a Jedi mind trick" and working to create a "self-fulfilling prophecy" for the Democrats.

The “Big Three” networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) put their undying loyalty to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on full display Monday evening, as they completely blacked out two news stories with explosive consequences for the campaign. “Tonight there is a new undercover video exposing direct links between the Hillary Clinton campaign and outside groups promoting her campaign,” reported Fox News’ Bret Baier on Special Report. Instead of reporting on a potential federal offense they hyped Clinton’s expansion into GOP strongholds.

Imagine if your main shtick in life is acting as a cheerleader for a program that turns into a colossal flop. Such is now the situation of Sarah Kliff of Vox since it was reported today that Obamacare premiums are due for a huge price hike.
Before we see Kliff struggling to explain the death spiral price hikes predicted for years by "evil" conservatives, let us read the sad bedside news of the terminal patient via the Associated Press:

Among the WikiLeaks documents recently released is a 2008 email with an attachment running to dozens of pages telling Democrats how to "maximize what we get out of our media polling." Fox & Friends covered this story Monday morning. Very few other online and broadcast outlets have. A popular excuse, which even people who should know better are swallowing, is that this advice is for candidates and their campaign managers. That's partially true, but it doesn't explain away the reference to media polling above, and it ignores the fact that many of the same polling organizations which advise the campaigns also are involved in compiling the media-sponsored polls released to the public.

Is the presidential campaign driving you crazy? Ben Collins knows someone who might be able to help. Collins recently interviewed perhaps “the only sane man writing about politics” on Facebook, and tells us that the experience was “like therapy.” Collins’s inadvertent therapist: former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather. As Collins indicated, for more than a year Rather, galvanized by Donald Trump’s candidacy, has been commenting on his Facebook page about the race for the White House. As he explained to Collins, “I just said, What the hell. I want to be myself…I want to do the kind of journalism I was trained to do in the tradition I grew up -- the Murrow tradition, the CBS tradition.”

In a recent op-ed for TIME magazine, Public Broadcasting Service late-night host Tavis Smiley expressed concern that blacks in America might one day return to slavery if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wins the election on November 8.
“In my lifetime, I have never seen Congress so blatantly mock our Constitution,” the host stated. “It’s especially striking that it comes from the political party that’s always lecturing us about the 'rule of law.' What’s worse is that they’re getting away with it.”

As the liberal media excitedly discuss the imagined idea of a big Hillary Clinton win, the commentators of Monday’s Morning Joe promoted New York Times articles on what to press will do in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s “reckoning.”
One authored by Ross Douthat on ‘The Dangers of Hillary Clinton” concerned: “the dangers of elite group think, of beltway power worship, of a cult of presidential action in the service of dubious ideals. Almost every crisis that's come upon the West in the last 15 years has its roots in this establishmentarian type of folly.”

Moving past a Hillary Clinton victory, ABC now sees a Democratic Senate “likely.” Reporter Jon Karl touted his conclusion, Monday, ignoring past media botches on predictions. Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos hyped, “Control of Congress at stake in this election. Both in GOP hands right now. Those majorities may be in jeopardy.”

It doesn’t matter that the United States has officially condemned ISIS. The liberal media still hesitate to call ISIS’ atrocities what they are: genocide.

On the Monday edition of CNN’s Inside Politics, Washington Post political reporter Abby Phillip employed a tiresome tactic to deflect away from any number of the Clinton scandals and particularly the revelations via WikiLeaks because it’s all “too complicated” to explain to voters in building a case against her.

On Monday's Today, NBC's Savannah Guthrie and Tom Hanks boosted the supposed crisis of overpopulation, which is part of the plot of the actor's new movie, Inferno. Guthrie touted "Malthusian theory" during the interview. Hanks revealed that a former professor of his introduced him to "the concept that eventually, the world will have too many people in it in order to subsist on its own." He noted the movie addresses the "quantum physics of overpopulation," and contended that "actually, the math does add up."
