New York Times columnist and author Thomas Friedman has never passed up a chance to trash the Republican Party and so during Sunday’s Meet the Press, he suggested that “maybe this party needs to crash and burn and this version of the Republican Party needs to die” in order for it to be reborn into a more competitive party against Democrats (translation: reshape their ideology).

Our last dive into the WikiLeaks trove yielded the proverbial smoking gun that confirmed our suspicions of collusion between Univision and the Clinton campaign. Below is an evolving timeline that confirms, beyond reasonable doubt, that Univision is inextricably joined with the Clinton campaign in corrupt purpose and deed.

In the October 24 edition of Notable Quotables: CNN host Brian Stelter reports on a North Carolina Republican headquarters being firebombed and wonders if Donald Trump is to blame. NBC News’s Kristen Welker claims the media would be spending more time on Hillary Clinton’s scandals but Trump’s “unforced errors” keep getting in the way. Also in this issue Chris Matthews is transfixed by Hillary Clinton’s “beautiful voice.” And pop singer Madonna makes an offer to voters that Bill Clinton would appreciate.

It seems that conservatives aren’t alone in the bashing of the lying, biased media. The Simpsons did a storyline on how not everything we see, read, or hear on the news can be counted as credible in the episode “Trust but Clarify.” Local news anchor Kent Brockman watches Fox News for six weeks and says “Sometimes I'd watch Bill O'Reilly and pretend it was an older, stupider version of me.”

Since June of 2015, there’s something Univision’s chief news anchor Jorge Ramos has never missed a beat in doing: portraying Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s words as expressions of unbridled xenophobia and racism.

The Washington Post “Fact Checker” uses a Pinocchio scale to determine how much politicians are lying. In Sunday’s Post, they suggested Donald Trump can be measured in “Benitos” in the article “How fascist is Donald Trump?” On some measurements of fascism, he’s four Mussolinis.

The article’s author is Georgetown historian John McNeill, whose specialty is environmental history (think Al Gore), not European political history. But he wrote “thoughtful people” can agree there’s a lot of fascism in Trump. He concludes he's only "semi-fascist." Try to imagine the Post asking in 2008 "How communist is Obama?"

Remember the haughtily officious spokesperson for the United Nations Climate Change Conference chronicled here in Newsbusters yesterday who wants to ban skeptical journalists from attending their meeting in Morocco next month? His name is Nick Nuttall and it appears he has a very bizarre side gig.

ABC’s Last Man Standing aired its Halloween special “Trick or Treat,” featuring Donald Trump as the most popular costume, but with a portrayal that was milder than what we’ve been seeing lately from liberal Hollywood.

I hope I'm right when I contend that most people in Oregon aren't as dumb as the writer of a photo caption in an article found at Oregon Live, the web site of the Oregonian, apparently is (or, one hopes, is only pretending to be). The caption's writer, commenting on a 2.5 percent gross receipts tax — not an income tax, but a tax off the top on sales — claims that "One question Oregonians have about a corporate tax measure on the November ballot is whether it would increase costs for consumers." He further notes that grocery stores "are one industry that could raise prices to cover the cost of the tax." The idea that Oregonians won't (excuse the expression) eat the cost of the tax imposed if what is known as Measure 97 passes, either through higher prices or other means, becomes more absurd the more one learns about the details of the tax.

The truth, as they say, hurts. Nowhere is this better illustrated recently than over there at The Columbia Journalism Review. Where CJR staff writer and senior Delacorte fellow David Uberti has penned this seriously misleading piece about my recent remarks on CNN concerning the “rigged election” controversy brought to the fore by Donald Trump.

Liberal media bias has become painfully obvious during the 2016 election cycle. Between the severely lopsided coverage of political scandals and WikiLeaks exposing just how cozy the media is to the Clinton campaign, it’s nearly impossible to deny its existence. But that didn’t stop CNN’s Brian Stelter from trying on Reliable Sources Sunday. “But how is this anything more than the team that thinks it's losing and trying to work the refs,” he started off his show by asking, but Stelter may have bitten off more than he could chew with an RNC official who gave him an ear full.

Friday morning, Fox Business's Maria Bartiromo had a tense one-on-one interview with Ezekiel Emanuel, one the two major architects of Obamacare (the other one is the infamous Jonathan "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage because of the stupidity of voters" Gruber).

On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of the possibility that, if he loses the presidential election, Donald Trump might start a right-wing news network, host Joy Reid suggested that such a network could exist for some on the right who think "Fox News doesn't hate Muslims enough." Liberal comedian and Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah then cracked that some believe Fox News is "too lazy to join the Klan," and, after recalling incidents of the word "Trump" being used to vandalize mosques, went on to declare that "the name 'Trump' is becoming a modern day version of the Swastika."

NBC’s Chuck Todd tried to continue peddling the agenda of the “Big Three” networks and cover up the media’s deep connections to the Hillary Clinton campaign, on Sunday’s Meet the Press. Donald Trump’s Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway join Todd to discuss Trump’s Saturday “reset” speech, but all Todd seemed to want to do was harp on how Trump wanted sue his accusers. Conway noted to Todd that he was only focusing on a small part and reminded him Trump went after the corrupt system as well, “And it did, unfortunately, include some in the media, not most not all, but it does include some.”

Tax dodger and riot starter Al Sharpton had a bone to pick with GOP nominee Donald Trump, on his MSNBC Sunday show Politics Nation, for playing coy with accepting the outcome of the election. Sharpton brought on Trump’s Senior Campaign Adviser Boris Epshteyn to browbeat him over the comments saying, “Boris, just how big would Clinton's win have to be for Trump to admit it is, quote, “Not questionable?”” But Boris quickly turned the tables and left Sharpton confused by merely mentioning the explosive new Project Veritas videos.
