PBS host Charlie Rose on Thursday discussed Kim Kardashian and the musical Hamilton with Supreme Court Judge Stephen Breyer. Yet, he offered no tough questions on the justice’s liberalism and instead labeled him a moderate. In a fawning introduction, Rose told viewers that Breyer “is known for his pragmatism, love of literature and love of architecture.”

On Friday, all three network morning shows dutifully advanced concerns from Hillary Clinton’s campaign that Hurricane Matthew could impact voter registration in Florida and touted the Democratic nominee’s demand that the state’s deadline for registration be extended to help her get more support at the ballot box in November.

According to a recently released batch of emails, White House and State Department Staff had conspired to pressure CBS to not ask Kerry anything about Clinton’s email scandal during a Face the Nation interview on March 15, 2015. Jennifer Palmieri, the former White House communications director sent an email about this very interview asking "[t]hink we can get this done so he is not asked about email.”

While safety is typically one’s top concern when facing a natural disaster, apparently partisan politics should be more important, to ABC. Former Bill Clinton staffer turned news anchor George Stephanopoulos turned a interview with Republican Governor of Florida Rick Scott about Hurricane Matthew into an argument for Hillary Friday morning when he badgered Scott to let Florida voters continue registering beyond the deadline, because of the hurricane.

New York Times TV writer Dave Itzkoff caused liberals to buzz about how they miss David Letterman on television with an article on Friday headlined “Letterman Has No Love for ‘Damaged’ Trump.”
Letterman was furious about Trump’s mockery of New York Times reporter Serge Kovalesky, saying the mockery showed Trump was a “damaged human being” and “a person to be shunned.” He added Trump needs “an appointment with a psychiatrist....a diagnosis and a prescription.” He also compared him to “moths.”

If Donald Trump thought he was in a two-to-one fight at the last presidential debate (Hillary Clinton and debate moderator Lester Holt) he should be prepared for a three-to-one fight on Sunday night. In addition to his Democratic opponent, Trump will be going up against CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and ABC reporter Martha Raddatz. A look at their careers shows they both have a tendency to lean left

Editor’s Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!)
If what goes up, must come down, it’s only logical to assume that what goes in must come out. Welcome to the world of food research and whacko activism. (Please behave, we’re running a respectable column here. Save your dirty jokes for the next Cosmo item.)

In an odd bit of déjà vu, NBC’s medical drama Chicago Med used the exact same transgender storyline in Thursday night’s episode as viewers saw the day before on CBS’s Code Black. Alexandra Grey, a transgender woman in real life, is certainly cashing in on Hollywood’s latest cause – making being transgender seem normal. Ironically these episodes have shown transgenders to be very unhealthy.

Well, it’s no surprise NBC’s Superstore continues to push left-wing themes throughout their second season. What was impressive was how they covered so much in tonight’s episode, "Guns, Pills and Birds," in so little time. Buckle up, folks, this one’s a doozy.

The spate of NFL flag/anthem protests, the same protests that Commissioner Roger Goodell encouraged, are taking a toll on NFL ratings.

As the Obama Administration comes to an end, ABC’s Blackish is not taking it well. There aren’t too many examples of when I will present video to you without comment. However, what you are about to see is…shall we say…hard to put into words.

NPR's Morning Edition on Thursday donated four minutes of air time to pro-abortion group EMILY's List, and helped it promote its ad blitz to elect Hillary Clinton and other left-wing Democrats. Renee Montagne played a clip from one of the organization's ads, and gave its president, Stephanie Schriock, a platform to hype Mrs. Clinton as a "a champion for women and families."

New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet is drawing buzz for an interview with the Nieman Lab journalism website. He said Donald Trump has changed journalism by making it easier for reporters to write “This is just false.” Baquet compared this campaign to the 2004 campaign, and how in his tenure at the Los Angeles Times, they couldn’t use language that strong to denounce the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth who ran ads seeking to debunk John Kerry’s tales of Vietnam heroism.
Nowhere in this interview transcript is a mention of the lying and document destruction and press inaccessibility of Hillary Clinton’s camp. This matches Baquet’s recent interview with NPR, where he insisted Hillary’s lies were much more like the average politician – yawn, and ho-hum.

The Hillary Clinton campaign was caught in a rather humiliating blunder Thursday, as it was discovered that they bought air time on the Weather Channel in battleground states effected by Hurricane Matthew. Out of the only two networks to cover politics that evening only CBS had mentioned it, while ABC ignored it. “Clinton’s camp had to sidestep an embarrassment of its own. Reversing a recent move to increase campaign ads on the Weather Channel,” reported Major Garrett on CBS Evening News.

On the heels of my Drudge Report-linked post about NBC’s Ron Allen informing MSNBC on Wednesday that the Paris climate change deal “is designed to stop” weather events like Hurricane Matthew, Thursday’s PBS NewsHour joined ranks of the absurdity as Judy Woodruff and guest Gavin Schmidt from NASA pondered the “interconnection” between the two.
