Over the weekend, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was exposed for favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. It was also revealed that she sent an angry email to Chuck Todd – headlined “Chuck, This Must Stop” – demanding better coverage on MSNBC’s Morning Joe after they called the DNC system “rigged” and Mika Brzezinski called for the party leader to resign on May 18.

Makes you wonder how often glaring inaccuracies like this go unchecked whenever liberals gather to talk politics.

Fortunately for the public record, Republican House member Tom Cole of Oklahoma was on hand during yesterday's This Week with George Stephanopoulos when Minnesota Democrat Keith Ellison tried to pass off his preferred version of history in lieu of the real thing.

They had a Baghdad Bob moment on MSNBC this morning in the 9am hour (Eastern time). The Lean Forward network's screen graphic read "WASSERMAN SCHULTZ RECEIVES CHEERS AT FLORIDA DELEGATION BREAKFAST," while it was very plain to viewers that she was being booed relentlessly.

Anchor Stephanie Ruhle must have heard the boos in her earpiece, and said “She actually walked in to cheers and a lot of support from the crowd.” That's odd. All the audience saw and heard to match that graphic was booing and heckling.

Longtime Democratic operative Donna Brazile being named interim head of the Democratic National Committee on Sunday following the ouster of chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz amid the DNC e-mail scandal created some awkward moments for CNN and ABC. Hosts on both networks had to explain that Brazile was stepping down as a political analyst as she took over the new partisan position.

The third season of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman – a cartoon about a beloved sitcom horse from the 1990’s and his life twenty years later – is out and the usual liberal issues are quickly worked into the dark animated series’ episodes.

Time magazine's Sam Lansky equated the ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in Orlando and Donald Trump's pick of Mike Pence as his running mate in an interview of Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto published on Thursday: "In the wake of the attacks in Orlando and Trump picking Mike Pence as his running mate, does it feel like a frightening moment to be a gay American? It does for me." Quinto replied, in part, "it's just a bleak and dangerous moment in our geopolitical landscape right now."

Scott Pelley and the CBS This Morning crew, on Monday, made the sales pitch for Hillary Clinton’s Tim Kaine VP selection. The CBS Evening News anchor, invited on to recap his 60 Minutes interview with the Democratic ticket, proclaimed of the pair “they look terrific” and “they were finishing each other’s sentences.” His CBS colleague Charlie Rose hailed they had “perfect chemistry.”

Monday on Morning Joe, the conversation jumped from the DNC email scandal to Hillary Clinton’s VP Choice of Tim Kaine. Co-host Joe Scarborough insisted that the news on DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her inappropriate email etiquette “stepped on” the selection of Tim Kaine, but that didn’t stop the panelists from praising the pair as the first day of the Democratic National Convention kicked off in Philadelphia.

In a desperate attempt to downplay chaos in the Democratic Party following leaked Democratic National Committee e-mails and the resignation of chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz, on Monday’s NBC Today, Meet the Press moderator Chuck actually tried to spin the controversy as a positive: “Look, the only piece of good news out of this for Democrats, Jeff Weaver, Bernie Sanders's campaign manager, told me yesterday the best thing for Democratic unity is her resignation and that actually could calm the waters today.”

Monday’s New York Times highlighted Democratic “discord” on the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, as outrage about the contents of a massive email leak from the Democratic National Committee, showing the DNC colluding to scuttle the insurgent campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton. But a “White House Letter” from Julie Hirschfeld Davis was more congenial to Democratic feelings: “Obama: A Character Witness and a Prominent Clinton Convert.” Meanwhile, the Times can’t decide if Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine is a liberal or a centrist (sometimes he’s both within two sentences).

A gospel music conference, featuring Jesus and…adultery? R&B artist Kelly Price performed her hit rendition of “As We Lay” at the Indiana Black Expo. The song, which is about a woman’s one-night stand with a married man, is one of Price’s best-known hits. The problem? She sang it during the event’s gospel music section.

Michael Warren at The Weekly Standard notes that somehow, the staff at CBS News doesn’t have a nose for news. The hottest breaking story – the Wikileaks posting of DNC e-mails proving they were tilted toward Mrs. Clinton and plotting to damage the Sanders campaign – got left on the cutting room floor Sunday night.

Does anyone believe that CBS News isn't capable of realizing this e-mail portion of Scott Pelley's interview was the hottest, and editing it in instead of out? It almost makes one wonder if CBS felt they had to clear it with the DNC or the Hillary campaign before including it. This exchange was all over the news today.

To kick off the Democratic National Convention, ABC had an enthusiastic Clinton fan and biographer, Gail Sheehy, as a guest on their morning show. If you remember last week, Good Morning America took a decidedly different approach when they brought on a liberal anti-Trump guest on the first day of the Republican National Convention. Anchors George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts sat enraptured as Sheehy described the Clinton marriage as some sort of epic romance out of a Hollywood love story.

They call it a comeback.

It is true, the U.S. economy is no longer in the depths of what has been called “The Great Recession.” But, in many ways the economy remains “weak.” Overall economic growth remains “subpar” and labor force participation rates remain shocking, not far from 38-year lows.

Then of course there’s poverty, food stamp use, weak wage growth and household income struggles. The average household is still making thousands of dollars less than they were before the recession. Those indicators tell another side to the story, one the broadcast networks haven’t said much about.
