One internal campaign e-mail exchange is salient. It discusses Mrs. Clinton speaking at an a Syracuse University event handing out the Robin Toner Prize for journalism, named after a deceased liberal New York Times correspondent.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, or Hillary the Inevitable if you're in the establishment press and ignoring three credible polls showing her either very slightly trailing or very slightly ahead of Donald Trump, appears not to be achieving the high degree of support or turnout that Barack Obama did among black voters in 2008 and 2012.
On Sunday, Hillary Campaign Manager Robby Mook dodged a question from Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union about indications that black turnout for the former Secretary of State in North Carolina during early voting has not been strong. Meanwhile, a black Trump supporter, who the press seems to believe can easily be turned into an object of ridicule, continues to run circles around them in interviews.
When it comes to Supreme Court justices and their views of the Constitution, on the one hand there’s Clarence Thomas, and on the other there’s everyone else in the 227-year history of the Court, suggested CNN and New Yorker legal analyst Toobin in a Tuesday piece. Toobin called Thomas, who just marked a quarter-century as a SCOTUS justice, “not a conservative but, rather, a radical” who’s driven to advance “his own idiosyncratic interpretation of the Constitution.” Thomas’s jurisprudence is, in Toobin’s words, “reactionary” and “antediluvian.”
As part of its ongoing look at various U.S. Senate races, Tuesday’s CBS Evening News examined the Pennsylvania match-up between Republican Senator Pat Toomey and Democratic challenger Katie McGinty and framed the race as Donald Trump possibly dragging down Toomey while ignoring McGinty’s flaws and past.

New on October 24: On MSNBC’s AM Joy, Joy Reid featured leftist comedian Dean Obeidallah who denigrated Fox News viewers as “too lazy to join” the KKK and charged: “The name ‘Trump’ is becoming a modern day version of the Swastika. So I fear that this is an IV drip of hate.”
Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank on Tuesday dismissed the idea of media bias against Donald Trump and, instead, called for even more of it. According to Milbank, “press neutrality” on the businessman “legitimizes the illegitimate.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this Tuesday, the BBC’s Katty Kay burst out laughing at attempts to compare Donald Trump’s campaign to the successful Brexit referendum and revolution in Britain.
On this Tuesday’s Morning Joe, exactly two weeks before election night, host Joe Scarborough initiated the discussion stating that “the Trump campaign has been saying for a week now that this is going to be America's Brexit.”
According to CBS This Morning’s Nancy Cordes, Hillary Clinton is “calling on the sisterhood” in the final weeks of the presidential election. The journalist used the loaded language while co-host Norah O’Donnell hyped the Democrat’s attempts to “finish off her opponent.”
"Oh, um. Let's see. Um. That would have been onnnn... Uhhhh.... Let's see if I have the date exactly... It would have been onnnnn.... 'Lock her up' would have been onnnn..."
No, I am not indulging in a bit too much of fermented extract of sugar cane. Instead I am directly quoting "conservative" Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin as she stuggled in a most hilarious fumbling way on The O'Reilly Factor last night to find a quote where the host supposedly made excuses for "lock her up."
Occasionally, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews flashes a pillar of his Catholic upbringing and Monday night was one such instance as he pressed New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor on whether or not she has any pro-life co-workers at the liberal paper after she laughed at the idea of liberal media bias.
On Tuesday, the Big Three networks' morning newscasts all hyped President Obama's appearance on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live the previous evening. On CBS This Morning, Gayle King, a political donor for the Democrat, marveled how the President's "timing is good. He seems to have a lot of fun with 'Mean Tweets.' He takes it all in stride." On Today, NBC's Matt Lauer touted Obama's "phone drop moment" after he mocked Donald Trump on the late-night program. Cecilia Vega spotlighted the same "Mean Tweets" segment on ABC's Good Morning America.
