History is apparently subject to revision without notice and without basis at the Associated Press.

In an outrageous report primarily dedicated to the notion that Donald Trump's concerns about the November general elections possibly being rigged thanks to potential voter fraud "challenges (the) U.S. Democratic system" — but a whole host of leftist-inspired rigging efforts apparently don't — Vivian Salama at the Associated Press informed readers in a later paragraph that Al Gore, according to "several post-mortem reviews," "would have won" the 2000 presidential election if "undervotes" had all been counted.

To ABC and NBC, a Donald Trump misstatement is worth reporting multiple times, but a falsehood by Hillary Clinton isn’t worth a second of coverage. On July 11, Hillary Clinton grossly distorted FBI Director James Comey’s statement on her handling of classified email during a CBS News interview. She restated this assertion to host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.

Howard Fineman is a fan of nuance when it comes to some politicians, but not others. The former senior editor of Newsweek appeared on MSNBC to describe Donald Trump as “dangerous” and an “insane traitor.” Yet, he balanced complains of “maddening” and “legalistic” Hillary Clinton by touting her as “effective” and the “personable,” “church-going Methodist.”

On Friday, all three morning shows dutifully touted President Obama’s defense of paying Iran $400 million on the same day Tehran released American hostages. Rather than hold the current president accountable for his highly questionable statements on the scandal, the broadcasts instead chose to hammer presidential candidate Donald Trump over a gaffe he made while reacting to the controversy.

In 1891, the largest mass lynching in American history took place in New Orleans. BuzzFeed fears Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant policies could lead to another such incident. BuzzFeed periodically departs from its standard fare of food quizzes and puppy pictures to produce more substantive articles. Today, that involved a history lesson on the 1891 mass lynching of 11 Italian Americans. The article’s title is “How a 125-year-old mass lynching tried to make America great again.” The borrowing of Trump’s slogan was not accidental.

Showing how much the liberal media is in the tank for Hillary Clinton in this election, reporters at the joint conference of National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists on Friday afternoon wildly applauded Clinton’s far-left answers to a slew of softball questions about immigration, the electorate, and even whether she has any black friends.

Bill Nye’s evangelical atheism fit right in when he visited the new “Ark Encounter” theme park, run by creationist Christian Ken Ham.

Two networks. Two vice presidential candidates. Same questions. Today co-host Savannah Guthrie on Friday interviewed Mike Pence and urged the Republican to trash Donald Trump. On CBS This Morning, Norah O’Donnell talked to Tim Kaine and urged the Democrat to trash... Donald Trump. She did not demand that Kaine bash Hillary Clinton. Instead she asked if Trump was “sane” and “competent.”

Despite abysmal ratings, ABC announced in May that it was green-lighting the anti-Catholic Real O’Neals for a second season. And now they’ve announced just when that second season will premiere: October 11, National Coming Out Day.

Following the recent revelations from the Wall Street Journal, that the US payed Iran a large sum of money at the same time as they released American hostages, has led many to believe to US payed a ransom for their release. But that couldn’t possibly be the case according to CNN Commentator Peter Beinart who ridiculously declared, on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday, “It's not ransom if you are giving people their own money, which is what we were doing here.”

The press's reporting on the Obama era's awful economy has been nothing short of abysmal. Looking at the bigger picture on July 25, MRC Business's Julia Seymour named "6 key indicators of (a) weak economy" the press has glossed over or ignored since the recession ended seven years ago. The most obvious item she identified is the fact that the current alleged "recovery" is by far the worst since World War II. On August 2, she noted that the press's pattern of negligence continued, as all of the Big Three broadcast networks' Friday evening newscasts ignored the tepid annualized 1.2 percent second-quarter economic growth the government reported that morning.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was in rare from on Thursday night as he both factually tried to link the 1964 and 2016 presidential elections and appeared astonished that there could be an “intervention” (as has been reported for Donald Trump) for something other than “a dope problem or a booze problem.

On Thursday's At This Hour with Berman and Bolduan, CNN host John Berman asked a provocative question about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's mental processes that you would never hear a CNN anchor raise about Hillary Clinton despite her perpetual difficulty with using acceptable judgment or ethics in office.

As South Carolina Republican Senator and Trump critic Lindsey Graham appeared as a guest, Berman alluded to a remark by Libertarian vice presidential nominee Bill Weld and actually asked the GOP Senator if Trump "has a screw loose."

According to Tomasky, Democrats shouldn’t feel lucky that they haven’t dealt with a loose-cannon celebrity candidate à la Donald Trump. Rather, they should be proud that their party wouldn’t come close to nominating anyone like that in the first place. “I feel for conservative pundits and thinkers to some extent, I really do,” wrote Tomasky in a Monday column. “I’ve wondered many times what I would do if the situation were reversed. But here’s the thing: The situation is not reversed. And it would never be reversed. The idea that the Democrats would nominate Sean Penn or, I don’t know, Alan Grayson...or Charlie Sheen or Susan Sarandon or whomever is totally insane.”
