It is now two days since it became obvious that the claim that "millions of Britons" have signed a House of Commons petition advocating a do-over Brexit vote is bogus.

The petition's buildup to millions of "signatures" was predominantly caused by bot-generating pranksters, and the entire effort proves absolutely nothing about UK citizens' alleged "regrets" over voting to leave the European Union last Thursday. But the press, either reluctant to admit they've been had or to discard a convenient, agenda-driven meme (or both), is allowing its past erroneous reporting on the petition to stand, while refusing to acknowledge more than a sliver of the fraudulent enterprise.

The network newscasts have shown no interest in an ex-Secret Service agent’s unflattering portrayal of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s time at the White House. Gary Byrne, author of Crisis of Character, appeared on Fox’s Hannity, Monday, but has been all but invisible on ABC, CBS and NBC.

The Huffington Post is once again showing their political bias by pushing a new poll on vice presidential names for presumptive presidential nominee Hilary Clinton.  Who happens to be at the top of that list?  Bernie Sanders, even though the Clinton campaign has said they are not considering a Clinton-Sanders ticket.

Samantha Neal – a “political polling intern” for the left-leaning news outlet -- cited a new poll from Monmouth University finding “Thirty-nine percent of voters nationwide said they would be more likely to vote for the Democratic ticket if Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders were on it."

Pro-life Christians have got it all wrong. God actually wants some people to get abortions. At least, that’s one way Chelsea Handler justifies the pro-choice movement. The talk show host has always been open about her choice to abort her own teenage pregnancies. She has no regrets about the choice(s) she made at 16. In a recent essay penned for Playboy magazine, Handler wrote that “I’m 41 now. I don’t ever look back and think, God, I wish I’d had that baby.”

All three networks on Tuesday hyped a possible Hillary Clinton/Elizabeth Warren presidential ticket, but the journalists on ABC’s Good Morning America were the most effusive. Former Democratic operative and Clinton Foundation donor George Stephanopoulos cheered, “Elizabeth Warren, certainly a  bold choice. An all woman ticket would be brand new.”

Left-wing comedian Trevor Noah still found a way to blast Pope Francis on Monday's Daily Show as he gave mild praise to the pontiff over his recent remarks: "The Pope says the Church and all Christians should apologize to gay people...My question is, how?..it's not like Hallmark makes 'Sorry, I oppressed you for centuries' cards." Noah later dropped an obscenity: "It almost seems like the higher up the Pope goes, the more progressive he becomes. We got to send that mother-f***er into space just to see how liberal he can get!"

In the aftermath of the Clinton/Warren rally in Cincinnati, MSNBC correspondents hailed the “magic” of what was apparently more like a “rock concert” than a campaign event. On Tuesday, Morning Joe exhibited more of the same as they obsessed over Clinton and Warren’s “really good chemistry.” Yes, another MSNBC groupie took the compulsive idolization to another level, as host Joe Scarborough likened Warren to rock n’ roll legend Led Zeppelin:

CBS This Morning took a strange turn during its interview with Chaos Monkeys author Antonio Martinez. Martinez, who publically compared Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to "Fidel Castro", led co-host Gayle King to ask Martinez "is that a compliment?"

CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather to assess “media complicity in the rise of Trump.” He never even hinted at the notion that the liberal media liked the idea of Trump as the easiest nominee for the Clintons to vanquish.

Rather’s new title is “CEO of the production company News & Guts.” The company website features Rather standing alone in a sun-dappled field with a pair of binoculars.

Dehumanizing people only works one way for leftists. Michael Ian Black’s new children’s book, A Child’s First Book of Trump, explains the “wild” “beasties,” called the Trumps, to our “youngest citizens,” according to its satirical description. USA Today notes that while the book is supposedly for the youngest citizens, “Older citizens might need a primer too.”

MSNBC’s Ari Melber filled in for Lawrence O’Donnell as host on The Last Word Monday night, where he and his guests, The Nation’s Joan Walsh and CBS News Sunday Morning Contributor Nancy Giles talked about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s speech with Hillary Clinton earlier that day. Giles held nothing back in her praise for the pair, calling Warren a “white rap star” who “pumped up Hillary” in a moment that was “almost like testifying” in church.

At Monday afternoon's White House press briefing, Fox News reporter Kevin Corke asked Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz about the reasons for the White House's reluctance to account for President Obama's whereabouts and activities on the night of the September 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Schultz never genuinely answered Corke's question, so then Corke zinged him with the fact that it took President Barack Obama far longer than the length of time Congress has spent on Benghazi to hem, haw, and finally reject the Keystone Pipeline project.

The New York Times Sunday Book Review featured former book editor Sam Tanenhaus talking about several news political tomes under the rubric “Why Populism Now?” And when we say “talking about,” we mean using the books as a pretext to slime Republicans as demographically doomed, out-of-touch racists. Also: Libertarians give you cancer.

On Monday's New Day, after a discussion of the possibility that some Britons may have buyers' remorse after the Brexit vote to end EU membership and how the issue plays into the U.S. presidential election, CNN political commentator Errol Louis claimed that Republicans have been on a trend of candidates making "more extreme" promises that they cannot keep to their base. Moments later, former CNN anchor Ali Velshi -- also a former Al Jazeera America host -- asserted that he hoped journalists would "press" Donald Trump on specifics, as he predicted that Hillary Clinton would "shine" in the debates.

Hillary Clinton trotted around Ohio Monday with Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, adding fuel to the speculation that Warren is going to be her VP pick. And like a celebrity couple, the “big three” networks took time to fantasize about the greatness of a Clinton/Warren ticket. “A major new force on the campaign trail, Elizabeth Warren joining Hillary Clinton side by side for the first time today,” remarked NBC’s Lester Holt on Nightly News
