This weekend, Chrissy Teigen embroiled herself in social media controversy when she refused to be “offended” at being offered “oriental dressing” during her in-flight meal. But when her followers erupted in anger over her calm, the 30-year-old model probably wished she could return to her salad days – the glorious time before Twitter existed.

Hillary Clinton was recently diagnosed with pneumonia. Barack Obama was not born in Kenya or anywhere else other than Honolulu, Hawaii. So what do Hillary fact and Obama fiction have in common? Marcotte has a sexism- and racism-related explanation. “The feigned concerns over Clinton’s health strongly resemble the feigned concerns that Obama was faking his natural born citizenship,” she wrote in a Tuesday piece, “right down to the posturing about how this is all the target’s fault for not providing more and more documentation -- to drive home how much those of us who aren’t white men cannot be trusted. In both cases, it’s about wallowing in ugly stereotypes -- that black people aren’t patriots, that women are inherently fragile -- without admitting that’s what’s going on.”

No points for “compassion” for a Republican from the New York Times, even when the party’s presidential candidate makes a big move in a liberal direction, as Donald Trump did with his proposed child care mandate. Wednesday’s front-page story emphasized the cynical political aspect of the move, while indicating the subsidies were feeble. A related story from Italy treated as bizarre the idea that mothers could be expected to bear and raise their own children without subsidies from the state: "The problem is not a lack of desire to have children, critics of the campaign say, but rather the lack of meaningful support provided by the government and many employers in a country where the family remains the primary source of child care."

With the news cycle focused so heavily on the candidates’ current health and medical records this week, both candidates opened themselves up Wednesday by releasing new health information from their doctors. And by all accounts, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are health for being 70. But on Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect, co-host Donny Deutsch took swings at his favorite punching bag. “I’m going to give you another fact,” Deutsch stated, “Between 40 and 60 percent have erectile dysfunction at that age.”

The much-anticipated premiere of South Park’s 20th season did not disappoint, featuring just the right level of timely, raunchy, bipartisan satire for which the show is known. In the episode “Member Berries,” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone take on the National Anthem, female comics, and the presidential election in a way only South Park can.

Just as they did Wednesday morning, the liberal “Big Three” networks steered clear of any of the more deeply personal attack against the Clintons in former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s e-mails, while continuing to rail against Donald Trump that evening. Despite hyping Powell calling Trump a "national disgrace," ABC, CBS, and NBC all ignored how Powell accused former President Bill Clinton of “dicking bimbos at home.”

Listen up you bigoted, insensitive, and intolerant Bible-thumping right-wing nut jobs in North Carolina. The Sporting News is gonna learn you something about inclusion and respecting people different than you.

When it comes to MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, one constant throughout the last decade plus with him has always been an obsessive dislike of former Vice President Dick Cheney and his family with Wednesday offering the latest installment as he admitted to his guests that it “makes me happy” and even “mirthful” that Colin Powell’s leaked e-mails showed a similar sentiment.

During Thursday's edition of the Cable News Network's weeknight Amanpour program, liberal host Christiane Amanpour asked guest Oliver Stone what the well-known film director, screenwriter and producer thought regarding the inclusion of Russia into this year's presidential election.

Stone -- who has generated controversial movies ranging from Midnight Express to the upcoming Snowden “biopic” of the man who released classified documents in 2013 -- called the accusation of Russians hacking into the Democratic National Committee “a great fiction” that disguises “what's really going on.”

MRC President Brent Bozell slammed the “arrogant, haughty attitude” of the press in 2016, deriding the biased presidential coverage in favor of Hillary Clinton. Talking to Neil Cavuto on Fox News, Bozell compared, “Their attitude about global warming, the attitude about gay rights, which is to say ‘you can only have one position’ and [journalists are] taking it to the presidential campaign.”

In the hours following President Barack Obama’s campaign stop for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday afternoon in Philadelphia, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was beyond giddy at the “magical” stump speech but he was later joined by Brian Williams, who declared on The 11th Hour that Obama will go down as “a communicator who can deliver” enthusiasm “unlike anything we have ever seen.”

Cyd Zeigler hit the NCAA from the left in a Tuesday post on Outsports for not going far enough in their move to take NCAA playoff games in several sports out of North Carolina over its "anti-LGBT 'HB2' law." Zeigler contended that "if the NCAA is serious, it is only a matter of time before BYU [Brigham Young University] gets kicked out of the association...[a]nd every other school with an anti-LGBT policy." The writer singled out several religious schools for having "policies...far more sinister and discriminatory than North Carolina."

Politico reporters Glenn Thrush and Brianna Ehley wasted little time demonstrating bias and their willingness to mislead readers in a story with the more-revealing-than-intended headline, "The Inside story of Clinton's sick day." Both were on display right out of the gate, in the first paragraph of the story.

Here's their lede -- "Hillary Clinton never lost consciousness, and never stopped talking on her phone -- and never put anyone else in danger -- after her near swoon at a Sept. 11 memorial on Sunday in New York, according to accounts offered by several people close to the candidate."

After CBS was caught editing footage of Bill Clinton saying Hillary Clinton “frequently” suffered from fainting spells, the network was back at it on Wednesday, again censoring unflattering news for the Democratic couple. While reporting on leaked e-mails from former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King conveniently stopped reading from one correspondence just before Powell referred to Bill Clinton’s sex scandals.

According to a new poll by Gallup, Americans’s trust in their media fell to a shocking new low. Asked if they believe the press will “report the news fully, accurately and fairly,” a meager 32 percent answered in the affirmative. Gallup’s Art Swift noted, “This is down eight percentage points from last year.”
