Confronted with accusations of media bias, NBC journalist Kristen Welker actually insisted that there is “no proof” of collusion between journalists and Hillary Clinton. Talking with Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Monday, Welker asserted, “Kellyanne, there is no proof there is any type of the collusion that you're talking about.”

On Monday, Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller blog spotlighted NBC's Chuck Todd and his wife's apparently cozy relationship with Hillary Clinton's campaign communication director, Jennifer Palmieri. The Todds sent out invitations for a September 2015 event at their house honoring Palmieri and her husband, Jim Lyons. The couple included the Clinton flack's supervisor, campaign chairman John Podesta, as disclosed in one of the e-mails released by Wikileaks.

Gone are the days when billionaire Tom Steyer focused his political spending solely on climate change. With the 2016 election only weeks away, the liberal donor has expanded his scope to include virtually anything left-wing, despite claiming there is “too much emphasis on money in politics.”

Are black Republicans Sen. Tim Scott and Reps. Mia Love and Will Hurd on the wrong side of the aisle? In a sense, they are, according to Jamelle Bouie, who argued in a Sunday piece that the conservatism central to the GOP is “fundamentally at odds with America’s people of color.” Bouie wrote that “no matter the temperamental affinities that might exist between some nonwhites and the Republican Party, attempts to bring them into the fold inevitably run up against a key reality: that movement conservatism—the starve-the-beast, libertarian mode that dominates contemporary Republican politics—is a white ideology."

Monday's CBS Evening News devoted a full report to a high school football team in Seattle whose players have been following the lead of the NFL's Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem to protest against "racial inequality." As the report did not challenge at all the premise of minorities being mistreated generally, when detractors were mentioned, the two players featured were seen complaining that some "Caucasians" and "white males" were criticizing their actions.

Filled with avid Clinton supporters, it is no secret that Hollywood disproportionately targets Donald Trump. Three months ago, an MRC Culture study determined that more than twenty TV shows had attacked him; now, with only three weeks until the election, that count has increased to nearly thirty.

With what has clearly been the craziest election of all time, we have witnessed not only the crumbling of both political parties but the final stake in the heart of media trust. Recent Wikileaks confirm self-declared political hacks in the media spinning things in favor of Hillary Clinton. In these darkest times, Supergirl shines a small light on journalistic integrity.

A brand new chapter in the Hillary Clinton personal e-mail server saga opened up Monday, as newly released FBI notes revealed a possible quid pro quo between the agency and the State Department. According to the notes State Department official Pat Kennedy wanted a classified Clinton e-mail to be marked unclassified in exchange for the FBI to expand their overseas presence. But ABC and NBC decided to downplay the stunning revelations on their evening broadcasts and instead touted the Clinton campaign’s expansion into “red states.”

At a time when the liberal media's aggression against the Republican nominee has never been more obvious, Mediaite ran a bizarre article by John Ziegler on Monday night headlined "Trump Claiming ‘Liberal Media Bias’ Is an Insult to Conservatives and the Truth." Somehow he compared Donald Trump to the murderer O.J. Simpson. Ziegler then launched into arrogant boasting about how he takes media bias too seriously to face "fake fighters against bias" like the "conservative" "Media Research Center." There is no proof the MRC is "fake."

Liberal NBC finally dedicated a serious amount of time to the “political terrorism” committed against the North Carolina Republican Party over the weekend, in the form of a firebombing of an HQ office. But instead of focusing on the heinous act, they decided to paint Republicans as the ones stoking the violence. “Tensions have been rising all year in a campaign that's seen undertones of violence,” reported NBC’s Peter Alexander, while playing clips of fights at Donald Trump rallies on Monday’s NBC Nightly News.

CNN's Chris Cuomo, who laughably insisted a month ago that Hillary Clinton "did not do anything illegal" in connection with her use of a private server for State Department emailing and other business, is at it again. To be clear, she did lots of things that are illegal, but a corrupt FBI and Department of Justice decided not to prosecute her.

New on October 17: NBC’s Kristen Welker claimed, on Meet the Press, that reporters would focus on WikiLeaks if only women weren’t making accusations against Donald Trump, insisting that “if these allegations hadn’t come forward from all of these women,” then “we would be almost solely focused on these WikiLeaks.”

In what appeared to be the biggest pro-Hillary rally yet of the fall campaign (with an estimated crowd of 15,000, though it’s likely more than a few in attendance were non-citizens, and thus ineligible to cast a vote), Univision and its sister English-language network, Fusion, once again delivered for their network’s preferred candidate, with a three-hour televised Get-Out-the-Vote extravaganza, titled “Rise Up” on the San Diego side of the U.S. – Mexico border.
