At a caucus meeting, Senator Ella Pollack launches into her opponent. The Democrats have been too soft, she explains. It’s time for them to stop compromising with the enemy across the aisle. When Luke interjects that the Republicans “aren’t terrorists,” she snaps at him and demands to know why he’s defending the GOP.

Oprah Winfrey produces and plays a minor role in a new church drama on her OWN channel. Greenleaf is a show about a black family by the same name that runs a mega-church in Memphis, Tennessee. Being as they’re all supposed to be “good Christians,” of course they all have dark secrets and skeletons in their closets.

On Wednesday one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides, Huma Abedin, testified in a sworn deposition to Judicial Watch about Clinton’s use of a private E-Mail and server, as a part of an ongoing lawsuit. That evening, two of the “big three” networks were silent about the testimony and the latest batch of E-Mails. On Special Report, Fox News’ Bret Baier read some of them, “Hillary to Huma, “Let’s get separate addresses or device. But I don't want to risk— any risk of the personal being accessible.””

All of the “big three” news networks ignored new details Wednesday evening of a Guantanamo Bay detainee who went missing in Uruguay. “The detainee was transferred to Uruguay by the Obama administration in 2014,” stated anchor Bret Baier on Special Report, “But has since vanished and officials say he could be in Brazil.” The development provides Congressional Republicans with even more ammo to stop detainee transfers from Gitmo.

A day after he wondered why terrorists always use bombs, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent parts of Wednesday night’s show comparing President Barack Obama to Reggie Jackson in being a clutch campaigner for Hillary Clinton this fall but worrying that the President’s jousting with Donald Trump could cause him to lose “some of his glow.”

Conservatives can’t stand Hillary Clinton, but do they have reasons for their antipathy? No, suggests pundit Paul Waldman, who indicates that detailed accusations about such matters as emails or Benghazi are mere pretext for the right’s “visceral loathing” of Hillary, which would be expressed more genuinely via sexist insults, or maybe primal screams.

In a Tuesday Post web piece, Waldman wrote, “Even those who long ago gave up hope in the absurd conspiracy theories swirling around Benghazi (like the idea that Clinton issued a ‘stand down’ order that directly led to the four deaths) now say that it’s the email server that demonstrates the true depths of her villainy. ‘She oughta be in jail! Because, you know, that email thing!’ they say (and Donald Trump says it too), which sounds a lot more like a substantive critique than ‘God I just hate that b-tch.’”

Best criticism this month of aspiring Scold-in-Chief Elizabeth Warren comes by way of former conservative turned liberal bullhorn Ed Schultz.

Ed Schultz is probably best known to NewsBusters readers from his five-year run at MSNBC until given the boot last summer. He also hosted one of the top-ranked liberal radio shows -- agreed, it's a short list -- for a decade before putting it behind him two years ago, though he's continued to post News and Commentary videos on YouTube when not spouting the Kremlin line at the Putin-backed propaganda organ RT, also known as Russia Today.

CNN's Christiane Amanpour took her left-leaning, pro-European Union activism to a new level on Tuesday during an interview of pro-Brexit politician Daniel Hannan. Amanpour, who recently blasted the referendum as an example of "xenophobia", tried to implicate Hannan as somehow partially responsible for supposed post-vote "hate crimes." He didn't take her clear bias sitting down, however: "You guys have been shouting 'racist' so long, you're not listening to what we were actually saying...if I was relying on CNN...I would think that this was nativist vote, a protectionist vote. It's the opposite."

Making his latest appearance on the Fox Business Network (FBN), the Media Research Center’s News Analysis Director Tim Graham slammed the liberal media early Wednesday evening for using “the old Clinton playbook going back to 1992” in their reaction to the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s report and peddling Clinton talking points to absolve her of responsibility.

La rabia fue evidentemente la orden del día para los presentadores de Univisión y Telemundo en los programas dominicales de noticias que dedicaron la mayor parte de sus tiempo al fracaso de las órdenes ejecutivas sobre inmigración dictadas por el presidente Obama en 2014, cuya invalidez fue confirmada por la Corte Suprema de Estados Unidos.

Just when you think you've seen it all, along comes a crossword puzzle in Tuesday's edition of the New York Times, which had the clue to 31D as a “decidedly non-feminist women’s group” and the answer was the word “harem.”

According to an article by Sarah Fisher on the Truth Revolt website, even the Times' puzzle “isn't safe from charges of sexism." “That little joke has some people outraged. People on Twitter denounced the clue as 'hateful,' 'clueless' and somehow dismissive of victims of sex slavery.”

According to the journalists at Good Morning America, having liberal singers lash out for using their songs is something that happens to “all” politicians. In reality, it tends to mostly impact Republicans. George Stephanopoulos and Matt Dowd on Wednesday discussed Mike Huckabee settling with the band Survivor for using Eye of the Tiger without permission.

An amazing thing happened during the counting of the Brexit votes in Great Britain. The early returns showed a comfortable lead for those who wished to remain in the European Union. The political establishment must have been breathing a sigh of relief...until the returns from the city of Sunderland, England were announced with a lopsided vote of 61% to leave which put that group ahead.

Wednesday on Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough finally got mad over the report released by the Select Committee on Benghazi. The report outlined the colossal failure of Hillary Clinton’s State Department for the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in September 2012. Even Jon Meacham joined in the angry chorus as the two vehemently disagreed with Hillary Clinton’s position that “it’s time to move on.” According to Scarborough, Clinton “got it completely wrong.”

Writing on A6 of Tuesday’s Washington Post, religion writer Michelle Boorstein opined that conservative, evangelical voters will have quite the dilemma on their hands this November as they will have to decide whether abortion or racism “is a worse sin” in choosing Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
