For viewers of the “big three” networks on Monday and Tuesday, coverage of the latest Hillary Clinton e-mail dump was all but non-existent as ABC has censored it from both their morning and evening newscasts while CBS and NBC have only given abbreviated nods in their morning shows CBS This Morning and Today. All told, the three news cycles combined for a measly one-minute-and-45-seconds of airtime with one minute and 24 seconds coming from a segment on the Clinton campaign on Tuesday’s Today from NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker that twice touched on Clinton’s e-mails.

Despite turning up nothing about the Colorado Springs shooter being very political or very religious, the media eagerly sought to pin the blame for the shootings on Christian conservatives and Republican presidential candidates.
These are the same journalists who protest to the skies that anyone would ever have the audacity to associate the average American Muslim with ISIS terrorists, or point fingers at the environmental movement over the Unabomber. But the pro-life movement? They are implicated, indicted, tried, and convicted before we know much of anything about this shooter.

On Tuesday night, ABC and CBS refused to acknowledge a pair of points in its respective stories concerning news that additional U.S. special forces will be stationed inside Iraq to fight ISIS and will engage in combat roles. Surprisingly, NBC Nightly News and chief foreign affairs correspondent/MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell worked in both of these important facts into the newscast’s report on the new development concerning the U.S. strategy for fighting the Islamic terror group.

Ed Schultz condemning others for "hateful rhetoric" -- hypocrisy doesn't get more sublime than that.
Schultz, you probably remember, vilified Laura Ingraham as a "right-wing slut" on his radio show in 2011, resulting in a two-week suspension from MSNBC.
His take on GOP opposition to Obamacare? "They want to see you dead! They'd rather make money off your dead corpse!"

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's At This Hour with Berman and Bolduan, CNN political commentator Errol Louis dismissed GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz's assertion that Democrats are more likely to commit violent crimes than Republicans by theorizing that prison converts some GOPers into Democrats because, after spending time in prison, they become "a little bit more respectful toward civil and human rights."
NYT's 'News' Bias Boils Over at Paris Summit: 'Why Do People Question Climate Change? -- Hint: Ideology'By Clay Waters | December 1, 2015 | 6:12 PM EST
The New York Times' coverage of the international climate change summit in Paris remained on an aggressive boil, as Coral Davenport and Gardiner Harris' report from France Tuesday, "Citing Urgency, World Leaders Converge on France for Climate Meeting," hit the same set of alarmist notes Davenport did in her previous story from Paris. And Justin Gillis, the paper's most alarmist environmental reporter, accused libertarians and conservatives of bad faith, taking funding from Big Oil, and "cherry-picking" data under the headline "Why do people question climate change? -- Hint: ideology."

The national news media is "lock-step" in with the "radical" Left and its "crazy agenda," when it mindlessly parrots talking points comparing the threat of climate change with that of radical Islamist terrorism Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell told Fox News's Neil Cavuto today on the latter's eponymous Your World program.

Interviewing Ben Carson for the first time on NBC’s Today on Tuesday, co-host Matt Lauer condescended to the Republican presidential candidate while citing the latest polling: “In the last four to six weeks you have gone from number one in Iowa to number three, and your decline seems to coincide with some very troubling world events....Is it a coincidence that your numbers are going down as Americans are coming to terms with moments like that?”

Gary Tuchman's report on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 made it clear that the CNN program was in the tank for abortionists and their political allies. The segment followed in the wake of Cooper's friendly interview of Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards and Randi Kaye's biased report on the Republican presidential candidates. Tuchman played up that to "the perpetual sadness of the employees" of a New Jersey abortion facility, "their building is a target." He also let the center's executive director and communications director smear all pro-lifers as potential terrorists.

While promoting his new movie, Chi-raq, about gun violence in Chicago, during the 9 a.m. ET hour on Tuesday’s NBC Today, director Spike Lee claimed: “...it's easier for an African-American, a black person, to be President of the United States than to be president of a Hollywood studio or TV network cable.”

On Monday's AC360, CNN's Randi Kaye played up how the hidden camera videos from the Center for Medical Progress triggered "anger-filled rhetoric" from the Republican presidential candidates in the months before the Colorado shootings. Kaye touted that CMP's David Daleiden "told CNN that...he did get creative with the video — admitting that it was edited — a critical detail that seemed to be lost on all the GOP candidates." This, of course, ignores the hours of footage that does show Planned Parenthood officials "bargaining, negotiating, pricing, and arranging the sales of body parts," according to her network's own reporting.
