President Obama spent a fairly large chunk of his Thursday speech in Columbus, Ohio needling conservatives and Republicans, alleging, among other things, that GOPers have “been feeding their base all kinds of crazy for years.” Esquire’s Pierce called it the speech he’d “been waiting for someone to give ever since Donald Trump became the Republican nominee” and gushed, “There were no words minced and no quarter given. By the time [Obama] left the stage, there was no ass he aimed for that went unkicked.” Republicans, Pierce charged, “have become a chronic danger to American democratic government and it's time for a serious intervention.”

ABC's Good Morning America on Saturday stood out as the only Big Three newscast so far to cover Hillary Clinton's new denials about her e-mail scandal. Devin Dwyer reported that Clinton was "asked about details of her decision to use private e-mail...[and] answered 20 different times with a variation of 'do not recall.'" The morning show, along with ABC's World News Tonight and CBS Evening News on Friday, also reported on the latest batch of John Podesta e-mails released by Wikileaks. NBC only mentioned Wikileaks in passing on Saturday's Today.

The co-host of The View didn’t wait long to say she was sorry for labeling women who claimed they were sexually abused by Bill Clinton “tramps.” She made the comments yesterday and offered up a true blue “I’m sorry” today. She didn’t even throw anyone under the bus in the process. That’s something a certain presidential candidate should consider the next time he’s cranking up an apology. And that could be any day now

For Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary Sunday, MRC Culture reporters Sarah Stites and Katie Yoder remember the estimated 7.5 million babies who will never be able to celebrate even one birthday.
NYT Lobs Racist, Sexist, Anti-Semitic, Conspiracy Accusations at Trump, Barely Grazes Dem Sex HypocrisyBy Clay Waters | | October 15, 2016 | 11:21 AM EDT
The New York Times went after the Republican candidate hammer and tong Friday and Saturday on accusations of past sexual misconduct, while continuing to downgrade long-standing, mostly unaired charges made against Bill Clinton, a man who would return to the White House if his wife defeats Trump in November. Reporter Jonathan Martin found Donald Trump flirting with anti-Semitism in “Trump’s Barrage Of Heated Speech Has Little Precedent.”

The liberal bias in press coverage of the presidential campaign has escalated dramatically in the last month before Election Day and on Wednesday’s Morning Joe, even MSNBC host Joe Scarborough had enough, calling out liberal co-host Mika Brzezinski and commentators on the morning show: “...the media can’t see past their sheer hatred of him, their uncontrollable sheer hatred of Donald Trump.”

Absolutely everything in our media is expected to unite around electing Hillary Clinton. Before the fall season began, Politico ran an article headlined: “Will 'Saturday Night Live' take down Trump?” The subheadline was a quote from leftist Muslim comedian Dean Obeidallah: “Maybe it’s going to take comedians to do the job that cable news has relinquished for so much of the campaign.”
The Left expected NBC to crush Trump. When Matt Lauer failed to do it, they ranted. When Jimmy Fallon mussed Trump’s hair, they railed. When Lester Holt completely threw the first debate for Hillary, it was clear NBC had received the message. The first two weeks of Saturday Night Live also blatantly went to bat for Mrs. Clinton

On Friday afternoon, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on Fox News on Your World with Neil Cavuto. The subject was the ongoing obsession with women charging Donald Trump with sexual harassment in the wake of the Access Hollywood tape where he boasted that a “star” could grope women and get away with it.
Host Neil Cavuto pointed out the dramatic divergence in TV coverage of Trump and sex vs. the emerging scoops coming out of the Clinton campaign e-mails posted on the Internet by Wikileaks.

The latest installment of "Stupid Fact Checks" involves the Associated Press, which appears to be determined to deny the truth of any statement, no matter how obviously correct, made by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump or running mate Mike Pence.
At Sunday's second debate, Trump said, "what President Clinton did, he was impeached, he lost his license to practice law, he had to pay an $850,000 fine to one of the women." The AP, as seen after the jump, claims Trump was wrong in saying Clinton "lost" his license:
Hypocritical Anita Hill Hagiographer (and Former NYT Head) Abramson Slams Sex Accusations vs. ClintonBy Clay Waters | | October 14, 2016 | 9:43 PM EDT
Former (and fired) New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, now a regular columnist for the left-wing British newspaper The Guardian, hypocritically dismissed three women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct in “Did the Hillary Clinton intimidate Bill's accusers? Let's look at the evidence.” The subhead: “Trump has tried to distract attention from his misogyny by throwing the spotlight on Jones, Willey and Broaddrick. It’s a dishonest and devious tactic.” Abramson’s dismissal of sexual harassment charges against political figures is particularly hypocritical from the woman who co-wrote “Strange Justice,” a smear job on Justice Clarence Thomas that sided with his accuser, Anita Hill.

100 years ago, as a result of the tireless efforts of Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood opened its doors for the first time. Although Sanger is memorialized by many women as a paragon of the feminist movement, she actually condoned eugenics, racism and state regimented family planning.

In an unusual turn of events, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was “very disappointed” that Jimmy Kimmel failed to ask her about UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) during an appearance on his late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! last November.
The reason? She had practiced her answer on the topic beforehand, according to an internal Clinton campaign email made public by WikiLeaks.

Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan hammered NBC News in her Friday column for taking so long to find the Access Hollywood sex-talk tape. Like many pundits, Sullivan’s not sure this 2005 tape is a fresh discovery: "What if that campaign-changing video — or something equally incriminating — had emerged during the Republican presidential primary, instead of sitting on a shelf at NBC’s Access Hollywood?"

Much is being made of The View host Joy Behar's outrageous smear earlier this week of three women who have accused Bill Clinton's sexual assault and unwanted sexual advances as "tramps." The blowback is richly deserved, especially because compelling evidence indicates that these women are the victims, not only of Bill Clinton, but of Hillary Clinton's enabling behavior and actions.
Behar has apologized for her remark, but her apology hardly excuses the tone of the discussion, which centered largely on characterizing Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Broaddrick not as victims — but as women who "slept with" Bill Clinton! Behar's apology also won't reverse her damning admission, seen at the end of the video segment posted after the jump, that Hillary Clinton "knows now that he (Bill Clinton) did those things" he has been accused of. Yes, that is what she said.
