Following the closing remarks signaling the end of the second day of the Republican National Convention, on Tuesday, CNN’s America’s Choice 2016 panel tackled the party’s support for gun rights. “We haven’t talked about this cheer leading for the NRA, and this cheer leading around the gun stuff,” commentator Van Jones stated, “My concern is that we have a country awash in guns.” Jones criticized Republicans for not being able to hear what the American people wanted in terms of regulations on guns.

According to Hardball host Chris Matthews on Tuesday, “bloodthirsty” Republican delegates are ready to “kill” Hillary Clinton. The MSNBC journalist was unhappy at GOP convention attendees for chanting, “lock her up.” Talking to Jonathan Capehart, he haltingly ranted, “And I get the feeling, he [Chris Christie] wanted — if they had said, ‘kill her now,’ it was almost that bloodthirsty.”

When a lone protester from the anti-American, far-left group Code Pink tried to make noise in the crowd at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Tuesday night, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC tag-teamed with MSNBC to spent nearly six minutes showing and discussing the “scrappy” protester.

It's a good thing all those layers of fact-checkers and proofreaders are out there in the establishment press making sure that they don't misinform their readers about the dates and times of impending events.

Oh, wait a minute. Both Cleveland.com, the home website of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and the Associated Press promoted a "Stand Together Against Trump" rally as if it would take place Tuesday afternoon. The problem is that the protest isn't until Thursday. Oops. I guess they were just overanxious.

On Monday and Tuesday, CBS Evening News failed to cover the ISIS-inspired knife and ax attack by an Afghan refugee on train passengers in Germany.  Instead, the newscast ended on Tuesday with a report on the celebrities who condemned Donald Trump for walking out to Queen's "We Are The Champions" at the Republican National Convention on Monday. NBC Nightly News covered the Islamist terrorism with a brief on Monday and a full report on Tuesday. ABC's World News Tonight finally covered the story with a brief on Tuesday.

The journalists at ABC and MSNBC on Tuesday could not contain their rage over Chris Christie’s hard-hitting Republican National Convention speech, denouncing it as “inciting” a “mob.” Noting that delegates chanted “lock her [Hillary Clinton] up," ABC’s Terry Moran fretted to the New Jersey governor, “Do you think that is a good thing for American politics when political disagreements result in a crowd basically becoming a mob?”

During a brief period of political commentary between convention speakers Tuesday evening CNN took the time to discusses Donald Trump Jr.’s speech. Their comments were mostly positive, but there seemed to be some dissenters of the liberal media in the audience around their set. A convention attendee, who appeared to be a fan of the Media Research Center, crashed their backdrop with a homemade “Don’t Believe the Liberal Media” sign.

Despite this week being the Republican National Convention, Chris Matthews couldn’t help but fawn over “moderate Democrat” Hillary Clinton. During live coverage, Matthews blithely dismissed Hillary Clinton sending and receiving classified e-mails as “blah, blah, blah.” Speaking of Republican delegates, the Hardball host mocked, “They reach for things about Hillary, ‘Oh, she let her e-mails get exposed to hacking, blah, blah, blah.’”

Michelle Goldberg used a Tuesday item for Slate to tout Micah Naziri's open-carry protest outside the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Goldberg zeroed in on how Naziri's clothing "made him stand out...[as] an armed Muslim in a sea of often explicit Islamophobia." She later played up how "a group of burly men who called themselves Bible Believers" held anti-Islamic signs near the rifle-bearing demonstrator.

MSNBC host, NBC News Clinton campaign correspondent and senior Clinton apologist Andrea Mitchell offered her latest Clinton spin on Tuesday during the Republican National Convention (RNC) by whining that the Clinton scandals ranging from Whitewater to Hillary’s e-mail scandal “will never be resolved to the satisfaction of the conspiracy theorists.”

Former New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz, whose incendiary, racist remarks could fill a very long book, was interviewed by Megyn Kelly at Fox News Monday night.

Shabazz has had a long history of establishment media indulgence, which explains how he can now meritlessly present himself as the supposedly respectable head and co-founder of "Black Lawyers for Justice." Fox's choice to give him air time was questionable, but at least Kelly gave him no quarter.

The journalists at CBS are obsessing over musicians who are angry at Donald Trump’s use of their music. Evening News anchor Scott Pelley combined this with the alleged plagiarism of Melania Trump, chiding, “Borrowed words are controversial and borrowed music, too.”

When FBI director James Comey came before the press to deliver his bizarre proclamation that Hillary Clinton had lied relentlessly about her private e-mail server, but shouldn't be prosecuted because no prosecutor would ever dare take her to court, except prosecutors all over the country rose to say they'd do so immediately, many were shocked and angered. One industry was thoroughly embarrassed: the media-elite "fact checker" websites and projects, from PolitiFact.com to FactCheck.org to the "Fact Checker" column at The Washington Post.

Translation: Maybe it's awkward and inconvenient, at least to a high-profile media liberal reluctant to condemn those poor, horribly misunderstood jihadists.

As is her wont, Rachel Maddow likes to schmooze with late-night television hosts as part of MSNBC's strenuous efforts to brand as a major brainiac who lives to pontificate about politics.

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning during CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the panel discussion descended into borderline chaos as guests and the host engaged in a wild shouting match. It all started when the topic of Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s convention speech was brought up. “Rudy Giuliani's speech tonight was rousing. It was. It was the definition of rousing,” stated Black Lives Matter supporter Bakari Sellers, “But it was also the definition of divisive.”
