The Democratic Party wants to force taxpayers to pay for abortion by repealing the Hyde Amendment, which turns 40-years-old this Friday. But Americans wouldn’t know that by watching the broadcast networks.

Once again, ABC, CBS and NBC have ignored a major news story that could be embarrassing to Hillary Clinton and have national implications, while promoting a negative (and trivial) Trump story initially pushed by the Clinton campaign.

On September 23, news broke that during the now-infamous investigation into Clinton’s emails, the FBI granted Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills immunity. House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz called Mills’s immunity “beyond explanation,” adding that “the FBI was handing out immunity agreements like candy.” Yet, neither ABC, CBS nor NBC ever even mentioned this story once.

At Monday night's presidential debate, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton made a big deal of how Republican nominee Donald Trump supposedly treated Alicia Machado after the 1996 Miss Universe winner gained a significant amount of weight during the year she held the title. Mrs. Clinton alleged that Trump called her "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping." Trump denies it, and I could find no news account from that time showing that he used either nickname publicly.

Especially since the Clinton campaign is now actively using Machado to promote Mrs. Clinton's candidacy, even including her "story" in commercials, it's fair game to consider far heftier matters relating to Machado's history. The, uh, weight of the evidence leads one to seriously question, as the media won't, Team Clinton's judgment in associating so closely with Ms. Machado.

The opening panel on the Tuesday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball briefly derailed from its scheduled topic of Monday’s presidential debate when host Chris Matthews lost his mind in relentlessly screaming at The Blaze host and conservative author Dana Loesch to explain “[w]hat was it that you folks think was the evil” Hillary Clinton committed concerning Benghazi.

According to one left-of-center blogger and one right-of-center professor, a major takeaway from the 2016 presidential contest is that ideological conservatism is unpopular, even in the Republican party. Samuel Goldman, a political-science prof at the George Washington University and a frequent contributor to The American Conservative, stated that the “great message” of Donald Trump’s campaign “is that there really are not that many movement conservatives” in the sense of average Americans “who are vested in a conventional combination of limited government, a relatively hawkish foreign policy, and a sort of religiously inflected public morality.” From the left, The Washington Monthly’s Martin Longman alleged that for most Republicans, policy ideas take a back seat to raw resentment: “‘Small government’ and ‘local control’ and ‘free enterprise’ and the rest of the GOP’s ideological playbook simply never had much appeal to their base except as signifiers for Trumpian impulses to smash outsiders and oddballs and anyone who discomforts them.”

While a meme comparing both presidential candidates to Harry Potter villains is going viral, the media only cares about demonizing one candidate. After the popular book series’ author J.K. Rowling called Donald Trump, worse than Voldemort, the media have been eagerly trying to get Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe to bash Trump as well.

Liberal actress Kathleen Turner, who in the ‘80s starred in such films as Body Heat and Romancing the Stone, is thoroughly baffled as to why some people don’t trust Hillary Clinton. Talking to the Washington Post, Wednesday, the celebrity opined, “I really truly think a lot of this comes down to white men thinking that they’re losing all their power, and they’re scared s—less.”

On Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer once again whined over Donald Trump threatening to bring up Bill Clinton’s sex scandals during a debate with Hillary Clinton: “There’s this other thing that he continues to talk about yesterday, this idea that he did not go there, that he showed restraint against Hillary Clinton when it comes to issues in her marriage. It’s this thing where you get to go there by saying you’re not going there....So is this working?”

Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple grabbed a quick interview with NBC News president Andrew Lack at the first presidential debate at Hofstra University. Lack predictably talked up Brian Williams and his new show The 11th Hour as "off to a nice start." (As usual, MSNBC is getting thumped in the ratings by O'Reilly Factor reruns.) But Lack tried to claim the serial-exaggeration scandal that forced Williams out of his NBC Nightly News anchor chair last year was already "ancient history," as far as he was concerned.

It’s been a decade since their show’s last run, but the cast members of Will & Grace reunited this month for a very special purpose – to record a thinly veiled pro-Clinton propaganda episode called #VoteHoney.

Just in time for the upcoming presidential election, popular book publisher Simon & Schuster has just released a new book for children aged 4-8 years old about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She, of course, most recently made headlines for speaking out critically against presidential candidate Donald Trump, an action that was blasted by even liberals for stepping outside her impartial role as a Supreme Court Justice.

According to the journalists at Good Morning America, it’s apparently okay to fat shame some people, so long as they are Republicans. On Wednesday, George Stephanopoulos opened the program by trumpeting, “Trump doubles down on his criticism of the former Miss Universe, saying her weight as a big problem.” Reporter Amy Robach alerted that in 1996, “Trump publicly shamed” contestant Alicia Machado, calling her an “eating machine” and “Ms. Piggy.”

The impenetrable bubble in the mind of disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather continues to amaze. In a post-debate Facebook post, Rather described Donald Trump’s approach as “often facts be damned.” He concluded: "To call Trump a con man, as many have, is a disservice to the art of the con. By its definition a con requires deceit. But Trump has not tried to hide his lies or the sheer unrealistic audacity of his cartoonish policy positions."

Dan Rather has few rivals in the sheer unrealistic audacity of his cartoonish pose as a truth-teller instead of a reckless fact-mangler.

Liberals blame Trump for escalating hate in America while continuing to be the biggest perpetrators. On September 24, Madonna threw a party for her son David Banda’s 11th birthday that featured a Donald Trump piñata. The Huffington Post, which praised Madonna for calling Trump’s sons “pussies” in early September and has already described Trump’s debate performance as “the worst ever,” referred to Madonna as the “queen of pop” while at the same time referring to Trump as a “sniffling orangutan who thoroughly embarrassed himself during the first presidential debate last night.”

The Tuesday evening following the first 2016 presidential debate, CBS Evening News was eager to share the opinions of people at debate watch parties from all across the country, including Los Angles, Philadelphia, and Dallas. Of the three watch parties they covered, CBS chose to lead with Los Angles where the makeup of the room was highly biased. “This group of Latino debate watchers gathered early,” reported CBS’s John Blackstone, “None here support Donald Trump, but Ana Reyes came looking for more reasons why Hillary Clinton deserved her vote.”
