Filled with avid Clinton supporters, it is no secret that Hollywood disproportionately targets Donald Trump. Three months ago, an MRC Culture study determined that more than twenty TV shows had attacked him; now, with only three weeks until the election, that count has increased to nearly thirty.

With what has clearly been the craziest election of all time, we have witnessed not only the crumbling of both political parties but the final stake in the heart of media trust. Recent Wikileaks confirm self-declared political hacks in the media spinning things in favor of Hillary Clinton. In these darkest times, Supergirl shines a small light on journalistic integrity.

A brand new chapter in the Hillary Clinton personal e-mail server saga opened up Monday, as newly released FBI notes revealed a possible quid pro quo between the agency and the State Department. According to the notes State Department official Pat Kennedy wanted a classified Clinton e-mail to be marked unclassified in exchange for the FBI to expand their overseas presence. But ABC and NBC decided to downplay the stunning revelations on their evening broadcasts and instead touted the Clinton campaign’s expansion into “red states.”

At a time when the liberal media's aggression against the Republican nominee has never been more obvious, Mediaite ran a bizarre article by John Ziegler on Monday night headlined "Trump Claiming ‘Liberal Media Bias’ Is an Insult to Conservatives and the Truth." Somehow he compared Donald Trump to the murderer O.J. Simpson. Ziegler then launched into arrogant boasting about how he takes media bias too seriously to face "fake fighters against bias" like the "conservative" "Media Research Center." There is no proof the MRC is "fake."

Liberal NBC finally dedicated a serious amount of time to the “political terrorism” committed against the North Carolina Republican Party over the weekend, in the form of a firebombing of an HQ office. But instead of focusing on the heinous act, they decided to paint Republicans as the ones stoking the violence. “Tensions have been rising all year in a campaign that's seen undertones of violence,” reported NBC’s Peter Alexander, while playing clips of fights at Donald Trump rallies on Monday’s NBC Nightly News.

CNN's Chris Cuomo, who laughably insisted a month ago that Hillary Clinton "did not do anything illegal" in connection with her use of a private server for State Department emailing and other business, is at it again. To be clear, she did lots of things that are illegal, but a corrupt FBI and Department of Justice decided not to prosecute her.

New on October 17: NBC’s Kristen Welker claimed, on Meet the Press, that reporters would focus on WikiLeaks if only women weren’t making accusations against Donald Trump, insisting that “if these allegations hadn’t come forward from all of these women,” then “we would be almost solely focused on these WikiLeaks.”

In what appeared to be the biggest pro-Hillary rally yet of the fall campaign (with an estimated crowd of 15,000, though it’s likely more than a few in attendance were non-citizens, and thus ineligible to cast a vote), Univision and its sister English-language network, Fusion, once again delivered for their network’s preferred candidate, with a three-hour televised Get-Out-the-Vote extravaganza, titled “Rise Up” on the San Diego side of the U.S. – Mexico border.

During Saturday's edition of MSNBC's AM Joy program, host Joy Reid disagreed with the chairman of the Black Republican Caucus of Florida, Sean P. Jackson, when he said that if it was not for Republicans, African-Americans would still be enslaved.
“Sean, Abraham Lincoln is long dead. Let’s talk about the current Republican nominee,” Reid said. “I think the reason African-Americans have civil rights is because African-Americans fought for them.”

The Big Three's morning newscasts on Monday all offered coverage of the latest Wikileaks release of John Podesta e-mails, but only CBS This Morning pointed out the New York Times's Sunday report on how "Hillary Clinton's inner circle built a web of private and public interest in Haiti and Africa when she was secretary of state. Clinton's State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills helped a South Korean garment maker open a factory in Haiti. The company then became a Clinton Foundation donor."

In one of the latest batches of Hillary Clinton campaign e-mails released by WikiLeaks on Monday, communications director Jennifer Palmieri can be seen complaining to fellow staffers about a supposedly “outrageous” interview NBC conducted with Bill Clinton about the Clinton Foundation in 2015. In reality, it was a friendly exchange that touted “heartwarming stories” about the organization’s charity work in Africa.

In a discussion of modern electoral fraud, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Monday offered a journalistic slip: She admitted that the 1960 presidential election was “obviously” “stolen” from Richard Nixon. Talking about a “constitutional crisis” if Donald Trump does not concede the presidential election, Mitchell blurted, “How have we come to this point? Some of the better moments in American history, the peaceful transfer of power.”

The liberal Center for Public Integrity posted a study Monday under the provocative headline "Journalists shower Hillary Clinton with campaign cash."
In all, people the Center identified in federal campaign finance reports "as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism" combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Clinton and Trump. Nearly all of that money — more than 96 percent — has benefited Clinton.

There are plenty of Planned Parenthood mentions in the latest WikiLeaks release, but the liberal media aren’t talking about it.
