On Wednesday’s evening news broadcasts, ABC was the only network to report on new threats delegates were allegedly facing from Trump supporters. Delegates from Colorado and Indiana complained to the media that they had been receiving death threats aimed at themselves and their families.While NBC did a full report on the GOP race and Trump’s complaints about the system, CBS did a short brief on the race and both networks failed to mention the death threats like ABC did.

Pressure on the Obama administration’s handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail case is intensifying. The President is increasingly seen as a Clinton defender, all while saying that his defense of his former Secretary of State is not an effort to meddle in the ongoing FBI investigation. Univision and Telemundo national evening newscasts have continued to remain silent on the subject.

If Bernie Sanders is a subsidiary of the NRA, they really should spin him off. . . On today's MTP Daily, Hillary surrogate Hakeem Jeffries, a NYC congressman and Hillary surrogate, claimed that "Senator Bernie Sanders has effectively functioned as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Rifle association for the entirety of his career."
Really? Let's go to the scorecard. Sanders current NRA rating is a subterranean D-. Since 1992, he has racked up four Fs. His highest score was a C-. Kudos to Chuck Todd for reacting with incredulity: "can you really refer to him as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the NRA? Do you really believe that the NRA thinks that Bernie Sanders is just one of their guys?" Jeffries whined that if Hillary is going to be associated with Wall Street, it's fair to pin the NRA on Sanders. Question for Congressman Jeffries: when's the last time Sanders scored $250,000 for a speech to the NRA?

The New York Times marked the one-year anniversary of the death in Baltimore of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of a spinal cord injury a week after being arrested. With a mayoral election and the trials of six police officers charged in Gray’s death looming in May, reporters John Eligon and Sheryl Gay Stolberg took a biased look back at last year’s looting and violence in Baltimore, praising Black Lives Matter and seemingly impatient with the fact that the cops held responsible (without evidence) for Gray's death had not been convicted yet.

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders rails against the “billionaire class” and has called income inequality “the greatest moral issue of our time,” but the senator from Vermont is “not exactly a man of modest means,” according to an article written by Kerri Anne Renzulli for the TIME magazine website.
However, “nothing about Bernie’s net worth devalues his progressive beliefs,” stated Peter Daou, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton who responded on the Blue Nation Review website to reports that Sanders and his wife, Jane, could retire with an “effective retirement nest egg” valued at “nearly $2 million.”

Conservatives were not surprised when Time magazine published a cover story on Ted Cruz with an extreme close-up of the Republican. The photo included a headline wondering, “Likable Enough?” The picture was so zoomed in that it included stray eyebrow hairs. Well, the Onion also anticipated this. Back on March 23, 2015, the satire site prognosticated, “‘Time’ Magazine Subscribers Brace For Inevitable Issue With Close-Up Of Ted Cruz’s Face.”

Our nation has been rocked, yet again, by news of horrific crimes committed against the most vulnerable among us- by individuals who are in this country illegally. Sadly, our domestic Spanish-language networks have once again chosen to be derelict in their duty to fully inform the community; by either hiding the suspects' immigration status if not blacking out the story altogether.
