Thursday night on the O’Reilly Factor, Fox News Senior Correspondent Geraldo Rivera argued with guest host Eric Bolling, co-host of The Five, about whether or not the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails was worthwhile, as even more controversy surrounding the Clinton Foundation comes to light. Rivera contended that Republicans were “wrong” to investigate her emails and that they should “swallow their pride” and admit it.

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox Business, Friday, to slam compliant journalists for minimizing Hillary Clinton’s scandals while playing up Donald Trump’s controversies.

Despite serious legal and ethical questions being raised about the Clinton Foundation having high-level access to Hillary Clinton’s State Department while accepting large foreign donations, a CNN report on Thursday revealed that the Obama Justice Department squashed an FBI investigation into the matter. So far, the broadcast networks have censored any mention of the growing scandal.

Winning is a matter of faith for some of Team America at the Rio Olympics. Except journalists only seemed to care about Islamic faith and almost nothing about Judeo-Christian beliefs. So much so that the broadcast networks covered the Islamic faith of one Olympian more than 100 times more than the Judeo-Christian beliefs of five gold-medal winners.

What will Huffington Post be like without its branded namesake Arianna Huffington? The left’s most-influential intersection of anti-conservative propaganda, fluff, crazy and puppy pictures needs a new boss. The founder of a site so big that it carries her name is moving on “to build Thrive Global, a new lifestyle, health and wellness site.” It’s easy to assume this new site will push her agenda that people need more sleep. (No, I’m not making this up.)

As written here before, there was never any real expectation that the NFL would allow the Dallas Cowboys to wear the “Arm-in-Arm” decals on their helmets, to show support for the Dallas Police Department during the regular season.

All the networks in the “Big Three” decided it was time to move on from Hillary Clinton’s latest E-Mail controversy on Thursday evening. And for ABC who only gave the story 38 seconds the previous evening? They were in awe of her campaign’s “Olympics strategy” for attacking Donald Trump. “Her campaign saying Donald Trump has, quote, “an aversion to the truth,” after he labeled the president the founder of ISIS,” stated anchor David Muir on World News Tonight with the on-screen headline reading, “Going for Gold.”

Our number-crunchers found the networks gave Trump’s “Second Amendment” crack about stopping Hillary-nominated judges drew five times as much air time as Hillary’s embarrassment when the father of mass-murdering terrorist Omar Mateen showed up behind her on TV at a Florida rally. Guess what? The nation’s top newspapers were even worse in demonstrating a double standard on these two bad-news moments from the campaign trail in their Wednesday editions.

In a piece that was pointed out on Thursday afternoon by The Blaze’s Dana Loesch on Twitter, NBCNews.com and it’s NBC Out section promoting the gay community published an article that actually tried to argue that passing strict, liberal gun control would mean that they could be “even more relevant to national politics and to win over allies outside the community.”

As Barack Obama prepares to leave the White House in January, the press is noting the president's accomplishments over the past seven years and seven months.
According to the fawning mainstream media, one of the heights the 55-year-old Democrat has reached is not boosting the country's economy nor successes in foreign policy, but instead that Obama has played more than 300 rounds of golf since taking office in January of 2009.

On Thursday's Legal View, CNN's Ashleigh Banfield zeroed in on Donald Trump recently using President Obama's name, including "Hussein." Ali Velshi replied that "we ought not be all that surprised; because...not so long ago, Donald Trump had still not let go of his idea that Barack Hussein Obama is a Kenyan-born Muslim. As a Kenyan-born Muslim, I can tell you he's not one of my people." Brian Stelter played up that Trump is "using coded language."

Thursday on Morning Joe, actor and MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch had a lot to say about the media and their relationship with Donald Trump. According to Deutsch, the “higher educated, left leaning” media needed Donald Trump all along…until they didn’t. Co-host Mika Brzezinski pointed out that although they had Trump on their show regularly for months during the primaries, viewers were “getting really tired of him” and their ratings “flat lined.”

Oil giant Chevron won in court again as a federal appellate court recently upheld a 2014 ruling blocking enforcement of an $8.65 billion claim against the oil company. But just as they did in 2014, the broadcast evening news shows ignored the latest in a decades-old legal fight.
Years earlier, CBS boosted the Ecuadorean battle against Chevron in a segment so biased Columbia Journalism Review’s “The Audit” blasted it for not checking facts. While all three networks should have reported the story, CBS had a greater responsibility given its history of biased coverage of the case.
