The Clinton Foundation was such a source of conflict during the 2016 presidential election that print media outlets and even some Democrats said the Clinton family should leave the foundation. The liberal Minnesota Star Tribune even said “American voters” should be concerned about the “appearance of a conflict of interest.”

But the broadcast networks ignored the conflict of interest afflicting the Democratic nominee in 95 percent of their stories.

Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch tore into Hillary Clinton’s policies on Squawk Box, arguing that her push for climate justice was de facto “lawyer protection." "Basically what it is, it just takes care of the lawyers,” Welch said on Sep. 20 of Clinton’s plan to promote “climate justice.”

NBC is accusing ISIS of genocide – but only after some star power got involved. On Monday, an NBC correspondent attached the term “genocide” to ISIS four times following an exclusive interview with Amal Clooney (married to actor George Clooney). That shouldn’t be a revolutionary move, considering that the United States officially accused ISIS of genocide in March. But it is, according to a recent MRC report on the media’s coverage of ISIS.

What’s the latest liberal preoccupation? There’s a TV show for that! Elderly trannies, Marxist computer hackers, conflicted comic book characters, Satan-as-good-guy? TV has become a digital dog park where Hollywood lefties let their ids off the leash to romp, sniff each other and chase tennis balls of increasingly inane plot.

In a debacle The Root described as “When Your White Ally Goes Wrong” news, white David Simon tweeted the n-word and learned that what goes around comes around.

Upset that Donald Trump’s town-hall meeting on African-American issues will be hosted by white Sean Hannity, television writer-producer (The Wire, Treme) Simon tweeted the following:

New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg – best known for arguing on the front page that the media was facing a “Murrow moment” to put Donald Trump on the ash heap of history – continued on this quest by trashing Larry King and Ed Schultz as Russian propaganda tools and “Manchurian anchors” on Monday.

The headline was “Old Hands Help Russia Navigate U.S. Media:" Rutenberg proclaimed: "But wittingly or not, Mr. Schultz and Mr. King are playing the equestrians to Russia’s Trojan horse (or, as The Daily Beast called them in an article last week, 'Manchurian anchors')."

In early August, a CNN reporter tweeted an email he purportedly received from a donor to Republican Party nominee Donald Trump's presidential campaign alleging that there was no way that a donor could cancel a recurring contribution. That got the attention of several establishment press outlets and the left-biased "fact checkers" who thought they smelled smoke, but ultimately found no fire.

Several days ago, the New York Observer followed up on a documented complaint by a Minnesota woman first reported at a local TV station in early June. Claiming communications with "multiple sources," reporter Liz Corkin asserted that the Clinton campaign is "purposefully and repeatedly overcharging" small-dollar contributors "after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website." Establishment press interest this time? None — except to have one of the so-called "fact checkers" dismiss Corkin's contentions as "unproven."

According to Bono, Donald Trump is the “worst idea that ever happened to America.” CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose interviewed  the Irish rock star on Tuesday and the journalist fretted over why Hillary Clinton wasn’t doing better. But first Bono assailed, “America is the best idea the world ever came up with. But Donald Trump is potentially the worst idea that ever happened to America.” (Worse than slavery?)

At least eight times Monday on CNN, various anchors and correspondents made the claim that Donald Trump called for racial profiling. The problem is, he didn’t. Starting at the 4:00 hour all the way through early Tuesday morning, CNN journalists added the term “racial” to Trump’s comments on profiling to combat terrorism, even devoting entire segments to discussing his statement he never actually said.

Whatever you think of Kim Kardashian West, she certainly knows how to leverage her platform – sometimes for a very worthy cause. On September 17, the reality star and businesswoman made waves for a full page ad she wrote in tandem with the Armenian Educational Foundation. Published in the New York Times, the article condemned the media for contributing to genocide denial.

Can we please stop infantilizing pregnant women and instead start viewing them as the psychopathic murderers they really are? Well, English actress and comedy writer Alice Lowe is off to a good start, as she talked about her slasher pregnancy film Prevenge in an interview with Vice published on September 19. The main character, played by pregnant Lowe, is a visibly pregnant woman who believes her unborn baby is telling her to murder people. So she does. Lowe described her desire to “shake up people’s preconceptions of pregnant women. And pregnant women as these soft, harmless things…” They’re really more like ruthless murderers, and they deserve to be treated that way!

On Tuesday, all three network morning shows ran with an unconfirmed claim from prominent Democrat Kathleen Kennedy Townsend that former President George H.W. Bush supposedly told her he was voting for Hillary Clinton. On NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie excitedly told viewers: “Is a Bush ready to back a Clinton? Yes, according to a Kennedy...”

A current MSNBC personality just passed the half-decade mark as a host on the channel. A former MSNBC personality who’s made plenty of comebacks just made another one. The Washington Monthly’s D.R. Tucker praised each man to the skies this past weekend. Tucker called Chris Hayes "the classiest man on cable” and opined that from the get-go, he was brilliant, “an engaging, charismatic host whose mind moved faster than Usain Bolt’s legs." As for Keith Olbermann, now of GQ, Tucker gushed that Olby "recognizes that conservatism…is a metastasizing cancer within the American body, and that if that cancer is left untreated, the American body will be consigned to hospice care."

From a recent Noticiero Telemundo newscast, this is one of the stranger (and more grossly blatant) examples of media bias that you'll find. Here is how anchor María Celeste Arrarás introduced a story on how 1 out 4 Americans refuse to stop working while sick:

The anti-Trump obsession at Univision is not limited to the presidential candidate. It has also extended lately to the prospective future First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump.
