Trey Sanchez at Truth Revolt reports that Ibtihaj Muhammad – the first Muslim-American athlete to wear a hijab while competing in the Olympics –  isn’t the darling the media are portraying her to be. The media coverage of Muhammed has made her into some sort of Olympic star, with their continuous fawning and praise over the 30-year-old fencing competitor.

It was even suggested that it should’ve been Muhammed carrying the American flag instead of Michael Phelps – who has more gold than most countries combined.

According to a statement at the city's web site, Fairfax, Virginia Mayor Richard "Scott" Silverthorne's resignation took effect at noon on Thursday. The resignation occurs a week after Silverthorne was arrested "for allegedly trying to exchange methamphetamine to undercover detectives in exchange for sex, city officials said Monday."

The press, as has so often been the case in situations involving Democrats, has been very reluctant to report Silverthorne's party affiliation, either avoiding the tag entirely or delaying it until their stories' very late paragraphs.

CBS on Tuesday and Wednesday showed scant interest in the father of a mass murdering terrorist sitting directly behind Hillary Clinton at a rally in Florida. But when a disgraced former Republican congressman sat behind Donald Trump, the network’s journalists perked up. CBS This Morning reporters hyped the “controversial” Mark Foley, whose appearance made Trump’s highlighting of Seddique Mateen “backfire.”

The days when Univision anchor Jorge Ramos used to swear he would never go so far as to tell his audience how to vote are over. The most well-known Hispanic newsman in the United States, once widely respected for pursuing tough, critical lines of questioning with all his political interview subjects, is now openly taking sides in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

While the liberal “Big Three” networks were up in arms Wednesday evening over the a comment Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made about “second amendment people” in reference to stopping Hillary Clinton, they were strangely silent then when a Democratic Senate candidate from Ohio was caught celebrated the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

The liberal “Big Three” networks seemed to try everything in their power to not mention Hillary Clinton’s latest e-mail controversy Wednesday. Throughout all of their news programs, both morning and evening, they gave the e-mails a total of 6 minutes 59 seconds. In stark contrast, they dragged out Trump’s “Second Amendment people” comment with a whopping 25 minutes, 54 seconds of coverage.

Hours after MRC President Brent Bozell appeared on FNC’s Your World, NewsBusters Executive Editor Tim Graham entered the No Spin Zone of Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor to highlight for fill-in host Eric Bolling the stark disparity in network coverage of Trump’s Second Amendment slip and the father of the Orlando terrorist attending a Hillary Clinton rally.

The day before Donald Trump reflected on “Second Amendment people” and their response to Hillary Clinton’s taste in judges, he made news with a speech about economics. To The New Republic’s Brian Beutler, the takeaway there was that Trump had “adopted [both] Paul Ryan’s tax policy and the GOP’s gaffe-centered 2012 campaign strategy of misquoting or misrepresenting the Democratic candidate’s words.” Beutler argued that the two were related since Trump, “vulnerable to criticism from Hillary” on tax issues, has taken the offensive by lying about Clinton’s tax proposals -- specifically, by “claim[ing] that she pledged to raise middle-class taxes."

NPR’s Morning Edition brought on Anita Hill for another of many softball interviews about sexual harassment on Wednesday. Hill is treated as a kind of feminist saint, and no one brings up how she came to Bill Clinton’s defense in the adultery-slash-sexual harassment fight before he was impeached in 1998.

NPR anchor Steve Inskeep began: “It's been submerged beneath the presidential campaign news, but we may be having a national moment about sexual harassment. Roger Ailes lost his job this summer as head at Fox News.” The online headline was “Anita Hill: ‘We’ve Come a Long Way Since Then.’”

MTV's Ana Marie Cox invoked the Founding Fathers on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom as she argued that the unsavory elements of Donald Trump's presidential campaign were a more serious issue than Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal: "I think that the violence and bigotry of the Trump campaign are more important than the Hillary e-mails....our founders could foresee the kind of controversies...and the kind of corruption that Hillary Clinton's engaging in. Like, that's part of government, you know?"

While Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was unable to win the Democratic Party's nomination to move into the White House by campaigning in this year's presidential contest against issues like income inequality, he is instead buying a different house -- his third, in fact.

Sanders, who targeted the 1 percent of richest Americans, apparently subscribes to the old phrase, “Do as I say, not as I do,” which he demonstrated on Tuesday by surprising the other 99 percent of Americans by purchasing a $600,000 beach-front residence in North Hero, Vermont, a move that drew harsh criticism from people in the media who supported his candidacy.

Speaking with Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News Channel (FNC) late Wednesday afternoon, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell blasted the media for their “incredible” double standard in spending far more time fussing over Donald Trump’s controversies while ignoring the latest Hillary Clinton gaffe with the father of the Orlando terrorist attending one of her rallies.

CBS and ABC journalists on Tuesday and Wednesday fawned over the “primal” scream actress Meryl Streep gave at the Democratic National Convention last month. Appearing on CBS This Morning, Wednesday, the movie star explained her pro-Hillary Clinton speech, saying, “I felt it was a moment in history and I felt like I was surfing this huge wave of wonderfulness.”
