Former CSI star Marg Helgenberger is doing an acting stint at Arena Stage in Washington DC in The Little Foxes, a play by leftist Lillian Hellman. She granted an interview to the local gay magazine Metro Weekly, and they asked about the election. Helgenberger said she's a longtime Hillary fan, and "It’s just beyond my comprehension how anybody could support a racist misogynist moron like Donald Trump. It’s beyond my comprehension. I mean, he’s a bad guy, you know? He’s a really bad guy."

Early Thursday evening during Hardball, a new MSNBC promo highlighted their unabashedly liberal slant with footage from Monday’s All In of host Chris Hayes giggling over a Donald Trump rally in Wisconsin chanting “Paul Ryan sucks” and an on-screen chryon reading “[t]his is a party foul.”

In an unusual turn of events, Chris Cuomo -- a liberal co-anchor of the Cable News Network's New Day morning program -- actually grilled Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, on Thursday regarding an unflattering email she sent regarding Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The missive -- which was released as part of the WikiLeaks' “document dumps” -- read: Clinton's “inability to just do a national interview and communicate genuine feelings of remorse and regret is now I fear becoming a character problem."

In the aftermath of the final Presidential debate, this Thursday’s Morning Joe discussedhow news headlines circulated surprise and outrage at Donald Trump’s response on accepting the outcome of the election more than any other aspect of the debate that covered a number of social issues as well as economic and foreign policy.

It’s the fact-checkers that need fact checking this time. During the final presidential debate Wednesday night, moderator Chris Wallace (Fox News) asked both Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and GOP candidate Donald Trump for their positions on abortion. Not surprisingly, the (usually pro-abortion) media took issue when Trump said Clinton’s policy supported “rip[ing] the baby out of the womb” up until birth.

As many leading pundits in the media pointed out, last night’s debate was probably Donald Trump’s last major opportunity to turn the tide of the campaign. Though Trump was the winner on points, he was nowhere near close enough to the decisive knock out he needed to gain the initiative.

Toward the end of the last 2016 presidential debate, Donald Trump muttered four words that sparked a feminist firestorm: “Such a nasty woman.” Little did he know that celebrities, women’s magazines and pro-choice organizations would reclaim the insult for their cause.

As a further illustration of how far liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has fallen in the minds of his cohorts, I suggest that one look no further than a review in Thursday’s New York Times in which Moore’s latest endeavor Michael Moore in TrumpLand was panned as disappointing with comedy that was “tame and sometimes lame” resulting in a “tepid” final product.

At NewsBusters late Wednesday afternoon, Tim Graham observed that many news outlets, including the Associated Press and most of the nation’s major newspapers, had not yet covered "the Project Veritas videos exposing Democratic operatives talking about voter fraud and inciting violence at Donald Trump rallies."

Graham's explanation: The non-coverage "marginalizes these charges enough that if Donald Trump brought it up" in Wednesday night's debate, many viewers unaware of the games the press plays with news timing wouldn't believe it — because after all, they surely would have seen important news like this reported by now. As if by magic, the Associated Press squeezed in a report on the Veritas videos which could easily have been filed Tuesday evening — and posted it at 8:14 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, 46 minutes before the third presidential debate officially began.

After CBS and ABC ignored the WikiLeaks revelation that top Hillary Clinton staffers exchanged anti-Catholic rhetoric via e-mail and NBC only offered mere seconds to controversy, one would expect a major U.S. Catholic leader denouncing the comments would draw at least some media attention. However, after New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan condemned the “insulting” remarks and demanded an apology from the Democratic nominee’s campaign on Tuesday, the networks have remained silent.

While Fox's Chris Wallace has drawn near-universal praise for moderating the final presidential debate, the Hollywood trade paper Variety carried the contrarian headline: "Final Debate: Wallace Misses." TV critic Sonia Soraiya wrote Wallace’s questions “provided some of the most heartfelt responses from her [Hillary] , such as her articulate, emotional statement of purpose on abortion.”

She complained "Wallace’s questions had the effect of equalizing the two candidates, a journalistic tic that is admirable but unhelpful in 2016. Trump’s mendacious statements going unchallenged did not help anyone except Trump himself."

For the second time this week, a liberal member of the media was caught feeding beneficial information to Hillary Clinton before a debate or story was put out to the public. Earlier this week, Politico reporter Glenn Thrush was caught getting Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s approval on an article he was writing about the Clinton campaign, before he published it. Now, it’s former NBC political analyst, turned interim DNC Chairwoman, Donna Brazile’s turn to be outed. In another WikiLeaks e-mail, it was revealed Brazile floated a debate question to Clinton’s team the day before Clinton would receive a very similar question at a CNN town hall. The e-mail was pretty straightforward, yet still the liberal media is bending over backwards to defend one of their own.

The New York Times coverage of the final presidential debate was dominated by what it termed “a remarkable statement that seemed to cast doubt on American democracy” -- Trump’s refusal to state he would accept the results of next month’s presidential election, along with a cutting front-page opinion on how Hillary flustered Trump. There was also another ideologically slanted fact-check of the debate.

As U.S. citizens prepare to select the next president, one liberal donor spent more than $103 million on media over the last 14 years to promote his own progressive agenda.

Liberal billionaire George Soros pledged to give at least $25 million to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates and causes, according to Politico. And emails exposed by WikiLeaks showed Clinton staffers  going out of their way to “make Soros happy” before the 2016 campaign even started.

Fox News’s Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night absolutely grilled Donna Brazile over a WikiLeak revelation that she gave a primary debate question in advance to Hillary Clinton. A flustered Brazile seemed to have no response and appeared totally unprepared for handling the issue. This is a question that most mainstream journalists have showed little interest in pursuing.
