Search for "go further" and "Hillary Clinton" for recent news on the Democratic Party's frontrunner, and you won't find any establishment press coverage.

This is disappointing but not unexpected. The establishment press continues to run interference for her, and reporting that Mrs. Clinton will "go further" (to the left, of course) on a number of issues than Barack Obama has while he has been President would not help her in the general election. But it seems to have helped build a bit of distance between herself and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders with Democratic Party primary voters. Sanders has given her far more trouble than anyone expected when he entered the race last year, and who has clearly gotten under Team Clinton's skin. If a Republican or conservative presidential candidate said that he or she would "go further" on hot-button issues, the press would spend days reporting on how "radical" he or she had become.

During CNN’s election night coverage Tuesday, sparks flew when CNN commentator and NewsBusters contributor Jeffery Lord sparred with Paul Begala the head of the Pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC Priorities USA. Begala was defending a deceptive ad his organization produced in 2012 that claimed Governor Mitt Romney killed a steel worker’s wife by canceling his healthcare coverage.

At the very end of the April 16 Saturday Night Live, the NBC skit show mocked the Christian movie God’s Not Dead 2, which like its predecessor explores how modern American culture denies the existence of God, especially in our classrooms. It did so by mocking God Himself.

NBC mocked the idea that Christians are being denied religious freedom. Cast member Vanessa Bayer played a baker who refuses to bake a wedding cake for two gay men, proclaiming “I want to deny basic goods and services to gay people.” An ACLU lawyer for the gay couple takes her to court to force her to say "God is gay." In her triumphant moment in court, she instead yells out "God... is a boob man!"

In the early stages of Tuesday’s primary results coverage, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd repeatedly declared on NBC and MSNBC that the outcome of the Acela Primary marked “the beginning of the end of this primary battle” and a near fatal blow to the Stop Trump movement leading to Trump legitimizing his status as the party’s nominee.

On Tuesday the New York attorney general announced that the class action lawsuit accusing Donald Trump of fraud, for his failed Trump University, will be going to trial. Of the big three new networks only NBC failed to report on the major news about the GOP front-runner. Not only was the public told that Trump would be called on to testify but the news broke during a very important primary day.

Similar to the saying about the only certain things are death and taxes, one certainty when covering the liberal media is that MSNBC will complain about voter ID laws and little to no early voting being voter suppression efforts and Tuesday night was no different with the culprits being Rachel Maddow and disgraced former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams.

The season finale of Fox’s Lucifer, titled “Take Me Back To Hell,” offers many surprising twists and turns. But the most interesting revelations in a show that blurs the lines between good and evil by glorifying the devil and featuring the downfall of an angel are the ecclesiastical. And here the show, again, manages to offend Christians.

USA Today totally respects and acknowledges your right to freedom of religion. Until it doesn’t. At least that seems to be what they’re getting at in an article titled, “When Religion and the LGBT Collegiate Athlete Collide.”

Republican politicians, more than their Democratic counterparts, tend to campaign on anti-Washington themes. That’s kind of odd, suggests Michael Tomasky, given that one of Washington’s quintessential institutions, Congress, helps the GOP by playing a crucial role in obscuring the American people’s fondness for liberal socioeconomic policies.

“If Congress is what you see when you see America,” wrote Tomasky in a Tuesday column, “then you see a place where roughly half—no, more than half—of the people think that raising the minimum wage is radical, or that health care is a privilege you have to earn, or that climate change is a fantasy…Out in the real country, only crackpots think these things…But the crackpot community is dramatically overrepresented in Washington and skews the way all these things are discussed and described on shows like Morning Joe.”

In the first of two Super Tuesday 4 editions of FNC’s The Five, co-host Juan Williams sought to admit the obvious that much of the media has become obsessed with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, but he didn’t employ such a term and instead awkwardly asserted that “[w]e’re all attracted to Donald Trump.”

The NFL draft has become must-see-TV for a lot of people, and New York Times pro football writer John Branch does not approve. In fact, he implies that excessive public focus may have ruined Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel's NFL career and life. Branch gained valuable space on the front of Monday’s New York Times with "In Manziel, a Draft Machine’s Human Cost.” Branch excoriated how "The N.F.L. draft -- our coverage of it and our appetite for it" shows how fans "are willing to dehumanize the games they love, turning people into products and lives into entertainment."

Fans of the Second Amendment will have to deal with one less anti-gun host on MSNBC: Alex Wagner. The journalist is leaving the network and moving to The Atlantic, the magazine announced on Tuesday. According to Politico, “Wagner will not just be writing for the outlet, she will also play a major role in its live events and video projects.”

During an interview with House Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King cued up a clip of Hamilton actor Lin-Manuel Miranda rapping his demand that Congress provide financial aid to Puerto Rico. On HBO’s Last Week Tonight on Sunday, left-wing host John Oliver capped off a lengthy monologue lobbying Congress to provide assistance to the island with the musical performance.

According to a Bloomberg analysis, Amazon’s same day delivery service often excludes black neighborhoods and calls into question whether or not Amazon should consider race when providing elite Amazon Prime delivery.

If you heard about this story, chances are you read it in USA Today or The Boston Globe, but not The Washington Post.  Why not the Post?  Well, consider the paper is now owned by Jeffrey P. Bezos, who also happens to be Amazon’s chief executive. But on April 15, the Post found space in the A-section for a review of Amazon’s new Kindle Oasis e-reader.
