Gun owners in America should be applauding Last Man Standing’s portrayal of gun owners and "gun culture" in Friday night’s episode, “Boyd will be Boyd.” The ABC sitcom hit all the right notes, putting gun safety front and center and showing how shooting sports can bring families together.

In a hysterical, fever-swamp dispatch otherwise shredded nicely by John Hinderaker at Powerline, the Associated Press's Jill Colvin insinuated that Donald Trump's concerns that the election is being rigged against him — with his primary complaints justifiably directed at an establishment press which has been undeniably colluding to do that — will cause his supporters to riot if he loses.
To make her case, Colvin found someone in the crowd at Trump's Portsmouth, New Hampshire rally whose answer clearly indicated that she had asked him if Trump's supporters will riot. She also portrayed Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke as over the edge in using a word which President Obama himself has used. Finally, she seems to have missed the fact that one current and another former Black Lives Matter activist promised riots if Trump wins months ago.

It’s been hard to avoid seeing the behind the scenes “hot microphone” video of Access Hollywood host Billy Bush arriving on a bus, with Donald Trump, at the NBC lot in Burbank. But while that clip featured Trump’s widely denounced lewd remarks about women, what did the NBC entertainment news program air at the time? Well, from the MRC’s video archive, here’s the story which aired on the Friday, October 21, 2005 Access Hollywood to plug Trump’s cameo the following Monday on the Days of Our Lives soap opera.

It was October 9, 1991. The subject was the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill showdown and then-New York Times columnist Anna Quindlen was furious. Quindlen’s fury was evident in the title of her column that day. It was as short and simple as it was blunt: Listen to Us.

He was the toast of the liberal media for a few days after first hitting the national scene last Sunday in St. Louis during the second presidential debate. For a very brief time he was hailed as a cuddly bear stuffed into a tight red sweater who was so cute that it made you want to hug him. And then by Friday...he became an instant non-person to liberals due to very un-PC Thought Crime remarks from his past on Reddit.
Of course, I am referring to Ken Bone who appeared as one of the undecided voters asking a question during the presidential debate. By the next day he was fully embraced by the liberal mainstream media. To get an idea of the extent of their idolatry, here is Jake Tapper gushing over how awesome Ken Bear is on The Lead:

President Obama spent a fairly large chunk of his Thursday speech in Columbus, Ohio needling conservatives and Republicans, alleging, among other things, that GOPers have “been feeding their base all kinds of crazy for years.” Esquire’s Pierce called it the speech he’d “been waiting for someone to give ever since Donald Trump became the Republican nominee” and gushed, “There were no words minced and no quarter given. By the time [Obama] left the stage, there was no ass he aimed for that went unkicked.” Republicans, Pierce charged, “have become a chronic danger to American democratic government and it's time for a serious intervention.”

ABC's Good Morning America on Saturday stood out as the only Big Three newscast so far to cover Hillary Clinton's new denials about her e-mail scandal. Devin Dwyer reported that Clinton was "asked about details of her decision to use private e-mail...[and] answered 20 different times with a variation of 'do not recall.'" The morning show, along with ABC's World News Tonight and CBS Evening News on Friday, also reported on the latest batch of John Podesta e-mails released by Wikileaks. NBC only mentioned Wikileaks in passing on Saturday's Today.

The co-host of The View didn’t wait long to say she was sorry for labeling women who claimed they were sexually abused by Bill Clinton “tramps.” She made the comments yesterday and offered up a true blue “I’m sorry” today. She didn’t even throw anyone under the bus in the process. That’s something a certain presidential candidate should consider the next time he’s cranking up an apology. And that could be any day now

The New York Times went after the Republican candidate hammer and tong Friday and Saturday on accusations of past sexual misconduct, while continuing to downgrade long-standing, mostly unaired charges made against Bill Clinton, a man who would return to the White House if his wife defeats Trump in November. Reporter Jonathan Martin found Donald Trump flirting with anti-Semitism in “Trump’s Barrage Of Heated Speech Has Little Precedent.”

The liberal bias in press coverage of the presidential campaign has escalated dramatically in the last month before Election Day and on Wednesday’s Morning Joe, even MSNBC host Joe Scarborough had enough, calling out liberal co-host Mika Brzezinski and commentators on the morning show: “...the media can’t see past their sheer hatred of him, their uncontrollable sheer hatred of Donald Trump.”

Absolutely everything in our media is expected to unite around electing Hillary Clinton. Before the fall season began, Politico ran an article headlined: “Will 'Saturday Night Live' take down Trump?” The subheadline was a quote from leftist Muslim comedian Dean Obeidallah: “Maybe it’s going to take comedians to do the job that cable news has relinquished for so much of the campaign.”
The Left expected NBC to crush Trump. When Matt Lauer failed to do it, they ranted. When Jimmy Fallon mussed Trump’s hair, they railed. When Lester Holt completely threw the first debate for Hillary, it was clear NBC had received the message. The first two weeks of Saturday Night Live also blatantly went to bat for Mrs. Clinton

On Friday afternoon, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on Fox News on Your World with Neil Cavuto. The subject was the ongoing obsession with women charging Donald Trump with sexual harassment in the wake of the Access Hollywood tape where he boasted that a “star” could grope women and get away with it.
Host Neil Cavuto pointed out the dramatic divergence in TV coverage of Trump and sex vs. the emerging scoops coming out of the Clinton campaign e-mails posted on the Internet by Wikileaks.

The latest installment of "Stupid Fact Checks" involves the Associated Press, which appears to be determined to deny the truth of any statement, no matter how obviously correct, made by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump or running mate Mike Pence.
At Sunday's second debate, Trump said, "what President Clinton did, he was impeached, he lost his license to practice law, he had to pay an $850,000 fine to one of the women." The AP, as seen after the jump, claims Trump was wrong in saying Clinton "lost" his license:
