It would be far too kind to give three cheers to CNN for exposing the disastrous conditions in a children's hospital in Caracas, Venezuela caused by over 15 years of Bolivarian socialism in a July 13 broadcast report.

The network gets one hearty cheer for the detailed report's existence. It lost a chance for a second cheer when it failed to mention the country's socialist form of government which is directly responsible for these conditions. The third cheer went down the drain when one woman who was interviewed seemed to think that the healthcare system's desperate situation may just as likely be caused by the nation's utterly powerless opposition and not the Chavista government of Nicolas Maduro, where the blame totally and obviously lies.

An unprofessional reporter and his equally failed co-worker displayed one of the worst cases of extreme bias in the newspaper business. Gee, did you think your humble correspondent was being perhaps a bit too harsh in his assessment of reporters Denis Slattery and Adam Edelman of the New York Daily News? Not after you read their article which is like extreme bias on steroids. Without even the slightest hint of subtlety they let their biases unashamedly hang out just dripping with obvious hate for all to see. You will already have an idea where they are going with the story just from the title, Rudy Giuliani, Tim Tebow among oddball speaker lineup at next week’s Republican National Convention

CNN's Kate Bolduan badgered the RNC's Sean Spicer on Thursday's At This Hour over Donald Trump passing on speaking at the NAACP's convention. Bolduan underlined, "Trump is polling at zero percent with African-American voters in Ohio...not showing up to speak...how does that help with that number?" The guest retorted, "The liberal media wants to talk about one particular group as if that's the only way to communicate....you don't ask Hillary Clinton about groups that she is refusing to speak to."

CNN intelligence and security analyst Bob Baer was on set for the network’s rolling coverage Thursday night of the terror attack in Nice, France but he seized on the tragedy to bash Israelis for responding to similar truck attacks by going “far to the right” along with those who support Brexit and the French political party National Front.

The Washington Post touted the president’s meeting on “building community trust” with the headline “Inside Obama’s radical experiment in national reconciliation.” Reporters Juliet Eilperin and Wesley Lowery noted that when the meeting met a level of comfort, people spoke their minds. St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman – a Democrat – denounced violent protesters, and somehow Al Sharpton lectured the mayor that no one should be distracting the conversation by being “upset with protesters.”

All three broadcasts evening newscasts on Thursday previewed Donald Trump’s selection of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. While all three networks employed religious and/or ideological tags to describe Pence, there were no references to the liberalism of potential Democratic VP candidates like Virginia's Tim Kaine — only how he’s “fluent” in Spanish and how Hillary Clinton “loved it.”

On Wednesday's Wolf show on CNN, in the aftermath of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's speech on race in Springfield, CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson talked up the views of Democrats in suggesting that Clinton might be better at handling race relations as President than President Barack Obama because she "can talk directly to white people in a way that President Obama might not have been able to." Her premise seemed to be that the onus for improving race relations is primarily on whites being lectured to on the issue.

During Wednesday evening's edition of The Kelly File on the Fox News Channel, host Megyn Kelly wound up clashing with guest D. L. Hughley -- a black author, political commentator, radio host and stand-up comedian -- regarding the fatal shooting of Philando Castile by police officer Jeronimo Yanez on July 6 in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota.

While Kelly tried to keep the discussion civil, Hughley got angry and tried to slam the network when he sarcastically stated: “The only place racism doesn't exist is Fox News and the Police Department.”

“You just insulted millions of people watching this channel,” Kelly responded sternly.

“And you know what? I'm insulted by the things I hear on this network, so we're even,” he claimed. “I could care less about insulting people that insult me on a daily basis.”

At her personal web site's home page, Ebony Magazine Senior Editor Jamilah Lemieux says she is "One of those pesky Black feminists who challenges the status quo, while remaining fresh and fab at all times." "Fresh and fab" would hardly describe Ms. Lemieux's Wednesday appearance on CNN Newsroom, where she took issue with, per the White House, President Barack Obama's characterization of the murders of five Dallas law enforcement officers as "hate crimes." You see, that's not her "most comfortable word choice," because it involved white cops.

NBC News foreign correspondent Bill Neely interviewed Syrian President and brutal dictator Bashar Al-Assad that began airing on Wednesday night and, somehow, large portions of the hour-long special were dedicated to harping on Donald Trump’s candidacy, if his lack of foreign policy experience concerned Assad and if his Muslim ban hurt his feelings.

The Affordable Care Act crisis is continuing, but you wouldn’t know that if you relied on ABC, CBS or NBC for your news. On July 5, CNBC called Connecticut’s state co-op “financially unstable,” noting that “HealthyCT is the 14th of 23 original ObamaCare co-ops to fail since they began selling health plans on government-run Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges.” A few days later, on July 8, Oregon’s co-op became the 15th to fail. Illinois followed on July 12.

As we have noted previously, the wildest instances of bias by Univision News are now reflected on the network's digital platform. The latest instance comes via its coverage of the Republican National Convention's platform plank on the issue most essential to Univision's long-term survival: immigration.

Journalists still haven’t lost their devotion to the Kennedys. The Today show on Thursday hailed a new documentary on John F. Kennedy Jr. as highlighting “America’s royalty” and a “prince.” Previewing I Am JFK Jr., Savannah Guthrie lauded, “A new documentary sheds light on the life and love of America's prince nearly two decades after his tragic death.”

Say goodbye to those un-American foods like sushi, tacos, and pasta, you college kids! At least, if Lena Dunham and Co. get their way. Political correctness strikes again, this time at Ohio’s liberal Oberlin College. Students there have been getting their panties in a knot recently because their college dining hall has the audacity to serve a variety of foods. Like sushi and banh mi.

On Thursday, both ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning hailed a video released by left-wing website Mic.com featuring celebrities describing “23 Ways You Could be Killed if You are Black in America.” On GMA, Pop News anchor Sara Haines touted how singer Alicia Keys had “called on Hollywood's biggest names for a powerful rallying cry in response to police brutality.”
