Having missed Tuesday’s primary results coverage due to his wife Kathleen losing her Maryland congressional race, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews returned with a vengeance on Wednesday to accuse Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz of having “given up on his brain” in fighting Donald Trump and joked that Cruz is a bigamist for his many political “marriages.”

An April 17 Associated Press story reported that "Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media." AP writers Carole Feldman and Emily Swanson complained that "perceptions of inaccuracy and bias, fueled in part by Americans' skepticism about what they read on social media."
In a later paragraph, they confessed that "The poll shows that accuracy clearly is the most important component of trust." This is where the AP and the establishment press contantly fails their readers, listeners and viewers. As seen after the jump, an unbylined Wednesday morning AP report quite obviously and deliberately waited four paragraphs to reveal who did the pepper-spaying at a council meeting in Anaheim, California where the subject was Donald Trump.

Comedian Will Ferrell is probably best known as one of the founders of the Emmy-winning comedy video website Funny or Die and a person who has often portrayed former Republican President George W. Bush in a number of comedy sketches on NBC's Saturday Night Live television series.

Late Wednesday afternoon, GOP presidential nominee Ted Cruz announced former presidential candidate and Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his potential running mate.

In the first few minutes of his return to MSNBC on Wednesday afternoon after his wife Kathleen finished a distant third in her Maryland congressional race, Hardball host Chris Matthews branded himself quite the hypocrite as he repeatedly harped on the fact that Ted Cruz running mate Carly Fiorina “is a three-time loser” in her political career and thus “pathetic.”

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry battled with Whoopi Goldberg on Wednesday as The View co-host demanded to know if the Republican agreed with “nasty” Ted Cruz on the issue of gay rights.

One obvious sign liberal journalists are already missing Obama? Celebrating him as a comedian. Washington Post gossip Emily Heil is a big fan of his comedic stylings, as the headlines proved. The cover of the Express, the free commuter tabloid, was gushy: “HE’S A REAL STAND-UP GUY: As he prepares for his final White House correspondents dinner, Obama has already demonstrated his knack for edgy, self-aware humor.”

On Wednesday, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning agreed that the Republican primary race was “over” and openly mocked Donald Trump’s opponents. On Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie asked: “So Trump is calling himself the presumptive nominee. Is he right, is this over?” Political analyst Nicolle Wallace relied on pop culture to declare an end to the nomination contest: “Yeah, there’s a line in Sex and the City where Carrie says to Mr. Big, ‘It's so over, we need a new word for over’...”

Progressives kowtowed to the Pope after he commented on climate change and homosexuality. But one liberal activist in the entertainment industry thought he left an important cause unplowed: cow poop.
Russell Simmons, the so-called “godfather of hip-hop” and CEO of Rush Communications, urged the Pope to speak out against animal agriculture, in part, because cow manure produced greenhouse gas emissions.

One way The Washington Post builds disgust toward Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is quite predictable: seek out Muslims who accuse them of “destabilizing” the self-esteem of Muslim school children.
On the front of Tuesday’s Metro section came an article headlined “Election-Year Lessons: Muslim educators are using presidential candidates’ attack on their faith as a teaching tool.”

It struck a lot of your critics as sexist.”
