CNN is staying true to its reputation as the "Clinton News Network," even after it released a poll on Tuesday which found that Hillary Clinton is behind competitor Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire by 27 points. The following morning, on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello spotlighted how Bill Clinton was "about to take the stage to stump for his wife, Hillary Clinton — something, perhaps, that is much needed at this moment, since Hillary Clinton seems to be lagging in some of the polls that are out there."

On CBS’s Late Late Show on Tuesday – aired early Wednesday morning – host James Corden ridiculed President Obama for abandoning the job of commander-in-chief in favor of doing a series of appearances on YouTube and reality TV shows: “...there is one guy who's definitely not interested in being the President of the United States, and that's the President of the United States, Barack Obama, who, I don't know if you've noticed, seems to totally have checked out recently.”

"There were three winning tickets for the $1.6-billion Powerball jackpot last week. The odds of winning were 1 in 292 million, which are about the same odds of hearing Hillary Clinton tell the truth.... NBC hosted the fourth Democratic debate last Sunday night. Fact checkers say they're still cataloging all of Hillary's lies." – NewsBusted's Jodi Miller.

Joe Scarborough may not “know who [he] was insulting here”, on Wednesday’s Morning Joe, but that didn’t stop him from digging into Marco Rubio, saying that the presidential candidate has been “preprogrammed” to be the “best robotic candidate in the race.”

Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello to react to Sarah Palin's endorsement of Donald Trump in the GOP presidential race, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones declared that it was "horrifying" to see the two together, and asserted that "Tina Fey couldn't have done a more incoherent, inarticulate sort of caricature of Sarah Palin than she did of herself."

Poor President Barack Obama.

Juan Williams, in a Monday column at The Hill, insists that "the president is not to blame for the rancor and polarization that have characterized his presidency," and "is not responsible for the unprecedented obstructionism employed by (Mitch) McConnell’s Senate Republicans." Why, In Williams's world, Obama has apparently been the very model of civility, while Republicans "have let anger and extreme voices define their party."

A new coalition called The Alliance for Fair Coverage of Life Issues launched its #CoverTheMarch campaign today demanding the media cover this year’s March for Life and cover it fairly. The annual event held in Washington, D.C. draws hundreds of thousands of peaceful participants from all over the country. This year’s March for Life marks the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion on demand.
 
The Alliance, a coalition of 17 pro-life organizations and two members of Congress along with the Media Research Center, formed in response to the consistently poor coverage media outlets have given to important, newsworthy life issues.

After bellowing on demand for several years at MSNBC, America's version of the Russia Today television network, Ed Schultz starts work at the actual RT next week. 

But following his fair and balanced commentary about Donald Trump on last night's Alan Colmes radio show, Schultz might just as easily fit in at Fox News.

On Wednesday, NBC’s Today completely ignored a major development in Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal, while CBS This Morning and ABC’s Good Morning America only offered seconds of coverage to the news. After the story broke on Tuesday that the intelligence community’s inspector general found several e-mails sent through the former Secretary of State’s private server contained some of the nation’s most classified secrets, all three broadcast networks censored the revelation on the evening newscasts.

On Monday, two pseudo-conservative PBS NewsHour analysts came together as one to say both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the ruin of the Republican Party and must be squashed. Since New York Times columnist David Brooks insisted on PBS it was time for a “conspiracy” to stop these guys, it seems like Brooks got his PBS Mini-Me, Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson, on board.

Did noted feminist and actress Lena Dunham have second thoughts about supporting Hillary Clinton? According to the New York Times the creator of HBO’s Girls was “disturbed” by how “the Clintons and their allies discredited women” who had “sexual encounters with or been sexually assaulted by former President Bill Clinton

So many women. So many scandals.

Yes, it can be very confusing writing about Hillary Clinton and her team covering up the many, many "bimbo eruptions" during the course of her and husband Bill's political careers. Therefore it is understandable that Amy Chozick, writing in the New York Times about the many scandals threatening to erode her support among women, got the names mixed up when presenting the infamous "trailer park" quote by Hillary supporter James Carville:

Hillary's in hot water. Needs Fauxcohantas. That, in a nutshell, was Mika Brzezinski's argument on today's Morning Joe. At the end of a segment highlighting the way Bernie Sanders has gone after Clinton for the massive "speaking fees" she's received from Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street firms, Mika concluded: "the only person that can help her now is Elizabeth Warren, and she's going to have to make her her running mate. There's no other way around it."

As we noted here and here, Mika has long been a Lieawatha fan, urging her to run way back in 2013. If Warren can't top the ticket, Mika wants her to at least get the consolation prize of the VP slot. Question for readers: how would a Hillary/Warren ticket play in the general election?
