Will journalists come to the defense of another media outlet? Maybe not if that organization is Fox News. The Washington Examiner on Thursday that Democrats on the Federal Election Commission targeted Fox News for punishment in 2015. Bedard explained, “Finally making good on long-harbored anger at conservative media, Democrats on the Federal Election Commission voted in secret to punish Fox News' sponsorship of a Republican presidential debate, using an obscure law to charge the network with helping those on stage.”

While credit goes to Thursday’s CBS This Morning for leading the broadcast with the controversy swirling around Bill Clinton having a 30-minute private meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch amid the FBI investigation to Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal, the hosts of the morning show proceeded to dismiss the suspicious incident as an “innocent” encounter.

In the wake of Congress's official report on the Benghazi massacre, the front page of the New York Times Wednesday eagerly absolved Hillary Clinton of any fault in the attack in Libya that killed four Americans: “Benghazi Panel Finds No Misdeeds by Clinton.” The paper’s inside-the-paper analysis by Mark Landler and Amy Chozick found further vindication, not addressing Hillary Clinton’s moral culpability in the attack but merely treating it as a partisan victory for the Democratic Party’s nominee, just one more hurdle to get past on the way to the presidency: “An 800-Page Report Down, and a Server of Emails to Go.”

On The Late Show Tuesday, Stephen Colbert misreported Pope Francis’ recent comments on Christian treatment of gays in order to blame the Roman Catholic Church for historical violence and to make fun of its sacraments and rites.

Univision's news brand pretty much centers around the stridency of its immigration coverage these days. However, it is fascinating to watch the network try to hide its biases on other major issues, as evidenced by coverage of the Supreme Court's ruling in the Texas abortion case.

If you’re taking advantage of the extended Independence Day weekend to embark on a road trip, you’ll be filling up the tank.

If you are researching prices to see just how much your trip will cost, have you thought about which states siphon the most money from each tank of gas you purchase?

This week’s episode of the new CBS body-snatching, political comedy BrainDead kicked off with escalating tensions as Senators Luke Healy and Ella Pollack battle to become the next Democratic Whip. For those outside the beltway, the whip is a party’s enforcer. It’s their job to count votes and ensure their members toe the party line when necessary.

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.””

CBS broadcasts discussing the Brexit Leave vote on Sunday and Monday went to economic "experts" whose "analysis" betrayed partisanship and both feigned and real ignorance. On Sunday on Face the Nation, max 2015 Hillary contributor (as usual, not disclosed to viewers) Mark Zandi of Moody's Analytics predicted that that the UK economy "is going down the rabbit hole" as the result of the Leave victory, and that the European union, based on being "bigger," is in better shape to hand the fallout. This defies 40 years of history — both two decades before and two decades after the EU formed a single market in 1993 — during which the British economy has significantly outperformed its continental brethren. Then on Monday's CBS This Morning show, Obama bundler Mellody Hobson absurdly told viewers that the EU is like "the United States of Europe which came into being after World War II."

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.’”
