UPDATE, July 17: The Enquirer corrected the error by removing the related sentence and placing the following "correction" below the article's boilerplate describing the paper's three-part series — "Correction: An earlier version incorrectly stated that 220,000 were murdered last year. The total was since Sept. 11, 2001."

A Cincinnati Enquirer reporter and her editors thoroughly embarrassed themselves and their employer on Friday. Additionally, given that the error involved has been present for over 36 hours, they may not realize it unless and until someone tells them about this post.

The reporter, Jessie Balmert, told readers that the number of murders in the U.S. last year was 15 times higher than it actually was. The Enquirer's editors, assuming they exist (one almost hopes that they don't), were also too ignorant to catch the blatantly obvious but agenda-fitting error.

New York Times former editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal, perhaps the most self-satisfied liberal on a Times staff that’s not exactly running short of them, was in rare form on the eve of the Republican Convention in Cleveland, going after multiple “racist” and bigoted GOP targets and comparing them to various notorious dictators.

Streeeeetch! Yes you really have to stretch to find any hint of racism in the new Trump-Pence logo. Take a look at the logo below and see if you can find it? No? Are you scratching your heads over in bewilderment as to how anybody could detect the slightest bit of racism in the logo? Well, you're not Daily Beast writer Olivia Nuzzi who somehow saw the link between that logo and the logo of a racist organization.

MSNBC just keeps turning to disgraced CBS anchor (and phony document presenter) Dan Rather as a grand expert on modern American political history. On Monday night’s All In, host Chris Hayes bowed to Rather’s very long career (in liberal bias). But at least Rather suggested that Hillary Clinton’s platform concessions to the Bernie Sanders followers could become an ideological problem. Most liberal reporters step around or deny that impression.

Hollywood hypocrite Mark Ruffalo – most famous for his role as the Hulk from the movie franchise The Avengers tweeted a plea to President Obama to defund police departments all across the country because of ”bad cops.” Of course, his request for such an executive order came after the deaths of two black men and five Dallas police officers last week.

ABC and CBS broke into their Saturday morning programming for special reports on Donald Trump’s official unveiling of Indiana Republican Governor Mike Pence as his running mate and in the moments afterward, ABC couldn’t help but fawn over the Democratic reaction to the ticket as Clinton “surrogates are now on fire” with liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) going “on a Twitter tirade.”

On Thursday's The O'Reilly Factor on FNC, during a discussion of the terrorist attack in Nice, France, self-described liberal Republican FNC analyst Geraldo Rivera seemed to be in touch with his more right-leaning side as he criticized President Barack Obama for not dealing with ISIS and depriving them of a safe haven from which to attack the West.

Rivera declared that "I want to love the President," but then lamented that President Obama's Cairo speech in his first term was "misguided," as he "just didn't understand the Middle East." The FNC liberal further complained that "sometimes he's too cool for school."

Univision finds itself unable, yet again, to suppress the urge to absolve radical Islam in the wake of another terrorist attack. The latest instance in what has become a predictable pattern comes in the aftermath of the horrific Bastille Day attack in Nice, France.

The latest installment in leftist excuse-making when socialism fails goes into the "It would work if leaders just had the right people handling things" file. It comes in the form of a Friday morning "analysis" at the Associated Press. Writers Jorge Rueda and Joshua Goodman want readers to believe that the economy in the Bolivarian socialist and once fairly prosperous nation of Venezuela would be in much better shape today if the military didn't botch the responsibilities de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro had previously given it to handle the nation's "battle against widespread food shortages." Now the AP pair believe it will get even worse, because the military has essentially been given total control in this area.

The New York Times is notorious for downplaying or ignoring links to radical Islam in the wake of terror attacks, and its response to the truck massacre in Nice, France mostly followed that pattern, with a news columnist shrugging off the idea the war on terror could ever be won and a front-page headline confidently stating the perpetrator was “A Surly Misfit With No Terror Links....” the morning that ISIS claimed responsibility. Max Fisher brought a defeatist attitude toward the war on terror from his Saturday perch as the paper’s “Interpreter” news columnist, while blaming “right-wing” governments in Europe for Muslim discontent:

In a recent article written for Fusion titled “I was an ‘accident’ – but I’m still pro-choice”, the writer, Caitlin Murphy, highlights the struggles and hardships endured by her mother after giving birth to her. She also goes into detail about how maybe her mother’s life would have been better if she had just opted for an abortion. Yes, rather than celebrate a single mother’s courage to continue on with the gift of life, she displays the most peculiar case of survivor’s remorse you can possibly imagine.

Much like Phil Mickelson took a big early lead in the British Open, Esquire’s Charles Pierce has taken a big rhetorical-excess lead in early blogging about Donald Trump’s VP pick, Indiana governor Mike Pence, calling him a “very strange and completely unreconstructed wingnut” whose paper trail contains “a rich deposit of sweet crude crazy.” Kevin Drum of Mother Jones described Pence as "not especially bright or quick on his feet, which means he might have trouble defending Trump's frequent idiocies and backflips. It should be fun to watch him squirm.”

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was up early dithering away on Saturday morning minutes before Donald Trump unveiled Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate when he went off script and shocked breaking news anchor Brian Williams by insinuating that there will be violence at the Republican National Convention (RNC) like the 1968 Democratic National Convention (DNC).

Memo to Governor Pence: Buckle in. The media is coming for you.

One of the hard facts of political life for Republicans is that their vice presidential nominees have - for decades - been treated as if they had the figurative bullseye on their backs, replete with a sign that says “Hey hostile liberal media! Over here!”

In the wake of the Dallas police murders, Hollywood liberals like Lena Dunham have targeted....action movie posters. On social media, Dunham boosted a crusade to remove the gun from Matt Damon’s hand in New York subway ads for the latest Jason Bourne movie. 
 
Since the Left insists on diverting attention from the cold-blooded murder of Dallas policemen, let’s turn instead to this other piece of Texas news that will put gun-hating, Planned Parenthood-boosting feminists like Dunham in their proper perspective.
