Appearing on Wednesday’s NBC Today, Bloomberg Politics editor Mark Halperin tried to dismiss the importance of Clinton campaign e-mails released by Wikileaks as being too “inside baseball” and “complicated” for voters to grasp. He then argued the issue would only matter if journalists actually pressed the Democratic nominee on the topic.

It must be nice getting debate questions in advance. Such is one of the many Wikileaks revelations contained in John Podesta's emails. As you can see dramatically illustrated in the video below, current Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile is boasting in an email that "From time to time I get the questions in advance." The question by News One Now host Roland Martin to Hillary Clinton during the March 13 debate in Columbus, OH between her and Bernie Sanders reveals just how accurate the advance question obtained by Brazile was.

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell slammed journalists covering for Hillary Clinton as nothing more than “spin control for the Democratic Party.” Bozell appeared on Varney and Co., Wednesday, to discuss the latest revelations from Wikileaks and the collusion they reveal. The media watchdog head warned, “I think the public needs to understand that every time they listen to CNN, they watch CBS, NBC, read the New York Times, read the Boston Globe, it's not just at they are left-wing, it's that they are colluding with the Clinton campaign in this election.”

Wednesday’s Good Morning America was all in for Hillary Clinton. From the complete absence of any story on the Wikileaks e-mails on the Clintons, to a hostile interview from George Stephanopoulos to Kellyanne Conway. Talking to Donald Trump's campaign manager, the former Clinton staffer repeatedly grilled Conway about an anti-Hillary ad the Trump campaign had put out. “You’ve got a huge gap with women,” Stephanopoulos stated, “How are you going to be able to make that up, running ads like that?” he questioned.

The networks have long been friends of Planned Parenthood, which turns 100 on Sunday. So when the nation’s largest abortion provider endorses one of their favorite politicians, it’s like a media match made, well, not in heaven.

The latest entry in a long line of mainstream media attempts to marginalize Donald Trump came today on With All Due Respect. Co-host John Heilemann obviously wanted to portray Trump as over the top crazy by comparing him to Colonel Kurtz of the Apocalypse Now movie. Let us join Heilemann as he attempted to divert attention from the Wikileaks revelations which he later wrote off as mere insider politics stuff by focusing on Trump as Kurtz:

Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan unloaded a Two Minutes Hate column on Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon, which is hardly surprising. But it might be surprising that a columnist who would present herself as a feminist would automatically assume that any woman accusing Bill Clinton of sexual harassment or even rape is "truth-averse." Encouraging them to attend a debate was "surreal." What is she were one of these women, and other women called it "surreal" that she would dare to attend?

The Democrats insist that "voter fraud is very rare" and that "voter impersonation is nearly non-existent." The press has consistently almost completely ignored evidence that voter fraud and voter impersonation are serious and growing problems.
One can expect that indifference will continue to be the norm even after the latest video produced by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas. The video shows a Democratic Commissioner of the Board of Elections Alan Schulkin of New York County, which is the county-level name for the Manhattan borough of New York City, at a holiday party in December 2015 "admitting that there is widespread voter fraud in New York City."

In an attempt to demonstrate how pervasive sexual assault is in politics Tuesday, CBS Evening News went back to the 90’s for a heinous example. No, they didn’t cover the plethora of examples swirling around former President Bill Clinton. Instead they chose one of their favorite conservative punching bags, Justice Clarence Thomas. “While these stories are being shared across social media today, the theme and its reality are nothing new,” stated CBS reporter Anna Werner before taking her shots at Thomas.

In the election cycle dominated by Donald Trump, it should not be much of a shock that the first “October Surprise” came from Access Hollywood. In a 2005 outtake, Trump told Access co-host Billy Bush how he could rudely grab women’s genitals and get away with it because “when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."
The Clinton-enabling press sprung into action, smelling Trump’s blood in the water. None of them seemed to reflect for five seconds that Trump could be describing Bill Clinton’s modus operandi.

While all of the “Big Three” networks were buzzing about the ongoing “GOP civil war” Tuesday, only one wasn’t able to find the time to report the latest deluge of leaked e-mails to plague the Hillary Clinton campaign. ABC dedicated spent three minutes touting how failed presidential candidate Al Gore stumped for Clinton in Florida. “Meantime this evening, a very rare appearance, alongside Hillary Clinton tonight. Al Gore and Clinton back together again,” hyped Anchor David Muir on World News Tonight.

Even though the Obama presidency is winding down and he’s not officially on the ballot in November, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed on Tuesday that he has more moments left in the tank with this one having him go numb in hailing the President as having “a little MLK” inside of him with a biblical-like delivery.

This latest edition of "Stupid Fact Checks" by Hillary Clinton lapdogs posing as objective reporters comes from the Associated Press. It's a doozy.
Shortly after the conclusion of Sunday's second presidential debate, in reaction to Trump's statement that "Assad is killing ISIS," the AP tweeted: "Trump wrong that Syria's Assad is fighting Islamic State militants." There's one insurmountable problem with that statement, namely that, as PJ Media's Patrick Poole noted, "recent AP reporting documented fighting between the Syrian regime and ISIS." The plot thickened from there, to what should be the wire service's complete embarrassment.
