When a news organization advances an agenda, everything is fair game. Univision News demonstrated as much during its shamefully politicized Memorial Day Weekend coverage.

Late Tuesday afternoon, CNN and MSNBC were both granted interviews with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and while both had to nearly identical run times (seven minutes and 44 seconds on CNN versus seven minutes and 47 seconds on MSNBC), the two differed on a variety of issues ranging from Clinton’s e-mail scandal to her refusal to hold a press conference to the VA scandal.

New on May 31: In ESPN Magazine, Howard Bryant went on a rant against police officers singing National Anthem before baseball games, denouncing an “authoritarian shift at the ballpark” and “the smothering effect that staged patriotism and cops singing the national anthem in a time of Ferguson have on player expression.”

Joy-Ann Reid, host of the new weekend morning program AM Joy, has yet to pay off a $4,948.15 tax warrant that drew a great deal of attention during 2015. The same is true for fellow MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton, who owes nearly $600,000 for two tax warrants listed by the New York state government.

According to an article posted Tuesday by investigative journalist Evan Gahr of the Daily Caller website, they join former MSNBC hosts Touré Neblett and Melissa Harris-Perry as “huge tax delinquents” who have been “in the hock with the Empire State for thousands of dollars.”

This morning on MSNBC Live, host Steve Kornacki had liberal actor turned activist George Takei on as a guest. Gone are the days where Star Trek fans remember George Takei as their beloved Mr. Sulu. Now, he has coined the phrase #VoteBlueNoMatterWho, and is encouraging Democrats around the country, specifically Californians, to keep their eye on the prize and get behind Hillary Clinton.

From time to time, a story rolls around which will clearly illustrate the absurdities of the institutional biases at Univision News. The latest instance of such a story is the network's coverage of the controversy surrounding a Wisconsin frozen custard establishment's decision to implement an "English-Only" ordering policy.

On Tuesday's Legal View, CNN's Mark Preston asserted that Donald Trump's latest attack on the media was "an absolute mistake because he doesn't want to necessarily do that." Preston soon added that "Trump deciding to take on the media at this point because he doesn't feel like they are treating him well is actually not a very good strategy — to the point the question was asked to him...do you have a thick enough skin to run for president? And he deflected on that question himself."

On Tuesday, all three network morning shows promptly dismissed talk of a third party conservative candidate stepping forward in the presidential race as “fantasy” and “a fool’s errand.” Hosts and correspondents openly mocked the notion of an independent alternative to Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. On NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie wondered: “Let's start with this tantalizing tweet from Bill Kristol that there could be a third party candidate....Does this seem realistic, feasible?”

Oh myyyyy, but this is silly.

Gay actor George Takei, known to most as the original Star Trek’s Helmsman Sulu has long been outspoken about his support of LGBT rights.

Like a tried and true liberal lapdog, the North Carolina media have applied a full-court press (pun intended) to attack Republican Governor Pat McCrory over the transgender bathroom law to the point that the leftist site Politifact hounded McCrory over a general statement that the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is both powerful and full of secret donors.

The broadcast networks routinely prioritize animal life over human life. This Memorial Day weekend was no exception.

Over the long weekend, 69 citizens were shot across Chicago. At the same time, a gorilla named Harambe was shot after a toddler fell into the animal’s enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. ABC, CBS and NBC spent 54 times more on the death of one gorilla than they did on the shootings (and, in some cases, death) of human beings in Chicago.

Despite Trump being the only candidate remaining in the GOP race, his supporters accounted for only 12 percent of all participants (9 out of 77 total) in roundtable discussions on Sunday shows from May 8 to May 29. A staple of Sunday political shows, the roundtable discussions give a chance for pundits from across the political spectrum to voice their concerns and opinions about the political news of the day.

Frank Huguenard, a Huffington Post freelance writer, wrote a story on Sunday titled, “Hillary Clinton to be Indicted On Federal Racketeering Charges.” Only one problem – after the piece was published on the leftwing site it suddenly vanished.  What was supposed to be Huguenard’s story was now replaced with one of those annoying “404” Error screens.

Here’s something new: gay people gaining media attention for saying that they don’t get enough media attention. Twin singer-songwriters Tegan and Sara, best known for their song “Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, have been in the music industry for almost 20 years, predominantly as cult indie artists with a few dedicated fans. But after the release of their last album in 2012, Heartthrob, they were propelled into the mainstream pop world. The album became one of the top 3 in the U.S. and Canada, and the duo performed on tour with both Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.

They once shared co-hosting duties on NBC’s Today show and now it looks like Bryant Gumbel has joined Katie Couric in being accused of using deceptive editing techniques to attack gun rights. The inventor of the AR-15 rifle, Jim Sullivan, has attacked HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel for misrepresenting “much of what I had said” in his interview for their anti-gun segment aired on the May 24 program.
