CBS and ABC noticed FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic testimony before Congress on Wednesday... just not the part that was about Hillary Clinton. Good Morning America and CBS This Morning focused on what Comey had to say about the threat from Russia hacking the upcoming election, but they excluded the director being grilled over not charging Clinton, as well as the decision to give immunity to certain aides. NBC’s Today show, a four hour-long program, totally ignored all of Comey’s testimony.

There’s no telling how many celebrities have gotten naked for Bill Clinton. But we know of at least a couple who’ve stripped for Hillary. On September 26, pop star Katy Perry posted a sneak-peek picture of herself nude on Twitter as part of a “Funny or Die” video to increase voter registration. In it, Perry explains, “You can look like shit when you vote.”

In a narrow sense, the item discussed here really shouldn't be newsworthy, because it's based on history which has for all practical purposes long been settled. But now that it's being treated as news, let's look into the can of worms at least two media outlets have chosen to open, perhaps without fully grasping the consequences of their doing so.
Leada Gore, an AL.com reporter who says she's "been covering Alabama news for more than 20 years," reported Tuesday morning that Ed Henry, an Alabama lawmaker who is also the state's Donald Trump for President co-chair, tweeted a sharp response to accusations of sexism directed at Trump by Hillary Clinton in Monday night's debate, specifically: "It is ironic that Lying Hillary blast (sic) Trump as a sexist when she is married to Bill, who is likely a rapist." We're supposed to believe that this tweet is controversial or over the top. It is, of course, no such thing.

Following the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, appeared on The View to praise Clinton. Mook faced softball questions from all but former Fox News contributor Jedediah Bila.

A Maryland high school student government association has abandoned the traditional monarchy without the consent of the governed. On September 23, the SGA officers of Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School voted on a proposition to make its homecoming court policy more … “inclusive.” The SGA felt that having a “king” and a “queen” was too restrictive and gender-normative; thus, the group voted 4 to 1 to make the court gender-neutral. Yet, apparently, the student population was not asked to weigh in on the decision.

South Park again parodied the presidential election between "Giant Douche and Turd Sandwich" in season 20’s third episode, “The Damned.” Two nights after the country’s first presidential debate, South Park had its own between Mr. Garrison and Hillary Clinton. The show mocked Hillary’s reliance on political advisors and scripted sound bites.

The highly superficial ABC let their viewers know how they really felt about Hillary Clinton’s campaign Wednesday evening during World News Tonight. “And tonight, one of Clinton's most powerful weapons, First Lady Michelle Obama, in Pennsylvania,” touted anchor David Muir leading into Cecilia Vega’s report, “And she did not hold back on the Trump.” Muir’s praise was accompanied with the flattering on-screen headline “Hillary’s Secret Weapon.”

FBI Director James Comey appeared before the House Oversight Committee Wednesday, where Congressional Republicans unloaded on him for giving immunity to people they accused of being liars. “The more FBI Director Comey talks about integrity of the e-mail investigation, the less Republicans and critics seem convinced,” reported Fox News’ Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge on Special Report. But even such incendiary accusations flying around a congressional hearing, ABC, CBS, and NBC yawned.

Lester Holt was wrong on the subject of "stop and frisk" during Monday's presidential debate. Is that criticism coming from supporters of Donald Trump? Yes but, more importantly, it is also coming from liberal sources as well including Ed Kilgore of the not exactly Trump-friendly New York Magazine.
You can see Holt make his claim about "stop and frisk" being ruled unconstitutional in the video below followed by Kilgore's critique:

A recent episode of Netflix’s Chelsea, “I Was a Ticking Time Bomb,” turned into a mini abortion rally and Planned Parenthood commercial. Extreme left-wing feminist Gloria Steinem was on the show to promote her book My Life on the Road, which she dedicated to her illegal abortionist.
Howard Dean Doubles Down on Trump 'Using Coke?'; Chris Cillizza Says 'We Should Be Talking More' About ItBy Tom Blumer | | September 28, 2016 | 5:42 PM EDT
During Monday night's presidential debate, former DNC chairman and 2004 presidential candidate Howard Dean tweeted: "Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?" Even the tabloid site TMZ described Dean's tweet as a "low blow." Unbowed, Dean doubled down at MSNBC on Tuesday, to the point where a clearly uncomfortable Kate Snow tried to maneuver him into backing away a bit. He wouldn't, which is fine with Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post, who told the network's Peter Alexander on Wednesday that "we should probably be talking more about" Dean’s speculation.

After NBC’s Today spent three straight days scolding Donald Trump for even thinking about mentioning Bill Clinton’s habitual mistreatment of women, on Wednesday, the morning show had no trouble doing the Clinton campaign’s bidding by touting allegations of Trump’s “sexist behavior.”

Because joking about shooting conservatives in the face is apparently funny, Scream Queens decided to use Tuesday night’s episode to target Liz Cheney, literally.

The British Broadcasting Corporation announced on Monday that former MSNBC host Martin Bashir has been hired to serve as the network's new religious affairs correspondent. The news release referred to Bashir as an “award-winning journalist” who has conducted “high-profile interviews" as well as “making ground-breaking, landmark documentaries.”
Of course, there was no mention of the incident during November of 2013, when he made a disgraceful rant regarding former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, whom he called “America’s resident dunce” and claimed she has a “deceased mind.” He then went so far as to suggest that someone should defecate in her mouth and urinate in her eyes.
