The Washington Post uncorked a pretty smarmy attack on the “typical” Donald Trump supporter on the front of the Sunday newspaper. The headline was “Finally. Someone who thinks like me.” Yes, the woman who thinks Trump thinks just like her was hospitalized for “homicidal ideation.”

With a story from The New York Times breaking overnight, where Donald Trump was alleged to have lost close to $1 billion in 1995, ABC and NBC were eager to pounce during their Sunday morning shows. So eager were they, in fact, that they completely skipped over audio of Hillary Clinton chiding Bernie Sanders’ supporters as basement dwellers, which also leaked over the weekend. “And now, for the first time we’re getting a look at some of his actual returns and how he could have transformed red ink into a huge benefit,” hyped ABC reporter Mary Bruce.

The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday to discuss The New York Times’ recent article featuring leaked information about Donald Trump’s taxes. Even though the information is striking, Graham took issue with the Times’ motives for writing the way they did, “They have the anonymous tax expert on the front page of the paper today say he benefited from his vast destruction, like he was Hurricane Donald.”

The New York Times played preemptive defense for Hillary Clinton as Trump telegraphed a possible hit on Bill Clinton’s dark sexual past, with the Times dismissing claims of sexual assaults by Bill Clinton as "disputed" and trying hard to turn the tables on Trump and his past infidelities:"...he also contended that infidelity was 'never a problem' during his three marriages, though his first ended in an ugly divorce after Mr. Trump began a relationship with the woman who became his second wife."

In a seven-minute segment on Friday, Democrat Howard Dean did not apologize for his speculation during Monday night's presidential debate about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's use of cocaine. The specific tweet: "Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?"

On Saturday's New Day on CNN, during discussions of the possibility that Donald Trump will make an issue of Hillary Clinton's treatment of women who were involved with her husband Bill Clinton, CNN political commentator Errol Louis ignored the existence of several sexual assault accusations made against Bill Clinton which could be brought up as the CNN commentator portrayed Hillary Clinton's behavior as if it were simply going after women who had consensual affairs with her husband.

The Hill media reporter Joe Concha reports CNN returned this week to its trait of getting snarky about the presidential candidates on screen. Don't forget that CNN airs in a lot of public spaces (like airports and bars) where the audio may be on, or off, or too soft to hear. CNN implied Gary Johnson should just get out after his failure on MSNBC this week to name a single world leader he admires.

Yes, there in fact is a sex tape of Machado out there from Spanish TV. As noted here at Breitbart by Joel Pollak: "In 2005, Machado appeared on The Farm, a Spanish-language version of the Big Brother program. She had sex with the host of the show, even though she was engaged to Major League Baseball player Bobby Abreu of the Philadelphia Phillies at the time. Abreu called off the wedding after the humiliating episode aired on TV. Machado wrote of her new lover, according to the Sun: “He treats me like a goddess, he f***s me like a b****!” In 2006, she became the first Miss Universe to pose nude for Playboy, appearing in Playboy Mexico."

Remember when celebrities gathered en masse to convince us Barack Obama was our country's savior? They opened up their wallets, and their homes, to fundraise for him. They sang his praises in every format feasible. They took time out of their packed schedules to campaign for him. They starred in PSAs imploring us how he needed our vote.

ABC debuted the sitcom Modern Family in 2009 in part to push a broader acceptance of same-sex couples. But the cultural deconstructionists cannot rest until the mission is complete, so then they pushed it even further, agitating for a broader acceptance of same-sex marriage as just as sacred as traditional marriage. Now the deconstructionists are doing it again, pushing transgender acceptance....with a transgender child actor.
This new initiative came just a few weeks after transgender actors became the latest social-justice cause pushed at the Emmy Awards.

There’s been a lot of talk in the past few days about “presidential temperament,” and where that quality is concerned, Brian Beutler firmly believes that President Obama has the right stuff. In a Friday piece, Beutler lauded Obama’s "unflappable" performance at CNN’s military-themed presidential town hall Wednesday at Fort Lee in Virginia. By contrast, Beutler opined, Donald Trump "lost his composure about 15 minutes into the first presidential debate." And if Hillary Clinton can so easily throw Trump off his game, Beutler suggested, then who knows what Putin might accomplish?

Donald Trump's name was never mentioned as New York Times book critic Michiko Kakutani reviewed the book Hitler: Ascent 1899-1939 by Volker Ullrich. But CNN's Dylan Byers reported "many in the media have interpreted it as a thinly veiled comparison between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump."

USA Today has never taken sides in a presidential race until they un-endorsed Donald Trump by recommending that people not vote for him. You would think this would make anti-Trump Erik Wemple of the Washington Post very happy. Instead Wemple is now in a panic mode.
It wasn't enough for him that the USA Today editorial board recommended that people do not vote for Trump. What has Wemple really riled up is that they did not flat out endorse Hillary Clinton. Instead they recommended that people vote for anyone but Trump, including besides Hillary, Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, write-in candidates, or even no one at the top of the ticket. To Wemple all this does is dilute the anti-Trump vote as you can see in his panic attack:

On Thursday, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen suggested in a videoconference call, as translated into plain English by the Wall Street Journal, that "there could be benefits to allowing the central bank to buy stocks as a way to boost the economy in a downturn."
