Sanctuary cities? What are they? I never heard of them. They must be phantoms.

Such was the feigned ignorance of  Democrat vice-presidential candidate Tim Kaine on CNN's New Day on Thursday. It was so embarrassing in its pretense that even host Chris Cuomo had to call Kaine out on it as you can see:

The “Black Lives Matter” movement is two years old, so it’s a little odd that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick suddenly has become a convert. He must certainly be pleased that everyone knows he refused to stand up during the National Anthem at a preseason game in Green Bay. 

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick announced. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” Now, photos show him wearing socks in training camp featuring pigs with police hats on them.

The Big Three's evening newscasts all devoted full reports on Friday to the FBI's release of its notes on their interview of Hillary Clinton over her e-mail scandal. However, ABC's Cecilia Vega stood out for spotlighting how "careless," as FBI Director James Comey put it, Mrs. Clinton was in her handling of classified material on her private e-mail server: "Just how careless? Investigators say 81 e-mail chains on Clinton's basement server contained classified information at the time they were sent; 68 of them remain classified to this day."

This election is over! You got that? Hillary Clinton has already won. 

Only one not so little problem. The one making this declaration is none other than the Eddie Mush of politics aka Bob Shrum. This time, the extremely unlucky political consultant (0 for 8 in presidential candidate wins) who infamous for possessing the "Shrum curse" might have cast a pall of misfortune upon the Hillary Clinton campaign with his gloatingly confident prognostication of certain victory for her. In fact, she has pretty much already won according to Shrum who was jubilantly performing an end zone victory dance while speaking to John Heilemann today on Bloomberg's With All Due Respect.

Shorter version of Brian Feldman’s Wednesday article: Sure, Mark Zuckerberg’s a genius, but he still hasn’t come up with a foolproof way to keep Facebook from promoting right-wing propaganda. “Facebook’s problem isn’t that it suppresses ‘conservative news’ or allows ‘fake news,’” wrote Feldman. “It’s that those two categories are increasingly indistinguishable.”

It's never Dear Leader's fault, is it?

For those who haven't noticed — and that would be understandable, given the national press's and broadcast outlets' consistent lack of interest in the period involved — the ongoing and worsening disaster in Syria during the past three years has caused "physical, human and political damage on an unprecedented scale." That quote comes the subheadline at Anne Applebaum's Monday column in the Washington Post. The main headline: "The disastrous nonintervention in Syria." So here was Applebaum's problem: How does one chronicle this disaster without making it look like President Barack "Lead From Behind" Obama deserves the lion's share of the blame? Her answer: Blame then-UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

According to Politico, the media were given no advance notice regarding Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s trip to meet with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto and were instead left “seething” because they didn’t have enough time to prepare for the trip across the border to Mexico City.

Post-Brexit, the liberal media lashed out with myriad hysterical predictions of economic meltdown and threw around bitter accusations of xenophobia, with the New York Times leading the charge. Well, those dire predictions of crisis have not exactly panned out, but the Times is back trying to pump some life into the libel, by labeling any violent crime against any immigrant in England as Brexit-related. In Friday’s New York Times, Dan Bilefsky wrote: “Fatal Beating of Polish Man Fuels Debate Over Xenophobia in Britain.” The text box read: “Fears that the ‘Brexit’ vote has unleashed a wave of violence.” More like fear among sore losers in the press, who still can't grasp how they could have lost an election where everyone they knew voted the morally correct way.

While filling in for the host of All In With Chris Hayes on Thursday night, MSNBC's Joy-Ann Reid clashed with Steve Cortes, a supporter of Donald Trump, asking her Latino guest not to use the word “illegals” because he was “offending or disturbing or offending lots of people who are listening.”

The liberal channel's national correspondent was surprised when Cortes refused to grant her request “because words matter” and “if you do something against the law, it's illegal.”

Linda Feldman at the Christian Science Monitor took on the long-standing problem of the Democrats: “Can Hillary Clinton now ‘humanize’? The candidate finds whe needs to overcome a caricature.” Why can’t she project warmth? The “core challenge” is “getting voters to look beyond the caricature of her – and to actually like her.” Liberal reporters can’t face the idea that she’s not resonating.

It's hard to imagine a press report accomplishing the following three things at once: disrespecting U.S. servicemen, demonstrating fever-swamp presumptive support for the one-world "climate change" agenda, and vastly overstating a 2.4-mile atoll's significance to "native tradition."

In a Tuesday morning dispatch, the Associated Press's Josh Lederman, in covering President Barack Obama's visit to Midway Island, was up to the task.

Along with the FBI doing its part for the Clinton campaign by dumping on the Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend its notes from their interview of Hillary Clinton concerning her e-mail scandal, MSNBC swept some of the most disturbing elements under the rug in its first two segments on it and concluded that they’ve helped them see “a little bit better why Director Comey” didn’t recommend charges.

Looking at social media reaction to controversial 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick maintaining his Black Lives Matter protest against the National Anthem during a military appreciation night in San Diego, on Friday’s NBC Today, co-host Carson Daly skewed the segment toward messages of support for the NFL player: “Yeah, there very much are two sides...His decision has many people on social media quite divided.”

Television is arguably the number one shaper of political and social views, and liberal dominated Hollywood takes full advantage of that fact. Just take a look at the content of the seven popular shows we've compiled to see for yourself.

Generally, it’s not a good idea to take advice from people who don’t have your interests at heart. On Friday, NBC’s Chuck Todd advised Donald Trump to stay away from the “rabbit hole” of Clinton “obsession.” MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted that the hiring of David Bossie is a “nightmare in Clinton world.”
