After the smoke cleared in the voting for the ‘Damn Those Conservatives to Hell Award’ at Media Research Center’s 2016 Gala, frequent Notable Quotables subject and MSNBC host Chris Matthews emerged as the winner for a vicious smear after the New Hampshire primary on “troll-like” Ted Cruz for living “below the level of human life.”

On Thursday's The Situation Room, CNN personalities were in overdrive throwing around accusations of racism toward Donald Trump's base of support within the Republican party during a panel discussion. Senior political analyst Jeffrey Toobin repeated the recurring charge that "law and order" represents "code words for cracking down on African-Americans," claimed Republicans are engaging in "voter suppression," and accused Trump's "base" of being "sick and tired of African-Americans trying to get political power in this country."
NY Times' Itzkoff Supports Lefty Scold Samantha Bee's Criticism of Fallon: How Dare He Treat Trump Like Human Being!By Clay Waters | | September 23, 2016 | 8:06 AM EDT
New York Times culture reporter Dave Itzkoff wrote a supportive article about an anti-Trump rant of TBS "Full Frontal" host and leftist scold Samantha Bee for attacking a fellow late-night comedian for the crime of being playful with one of his guests, Donald Trump. As Itzkoff noted in his story, “From One Comedic Host to Another: Criticism Over Trump,” on the front of Wednesday’s Arts section, Bee was enraged at Tonight Show host Fallon for failing to treat Trump as the second coming of Hitler. Judging by the controversy, there are many on the left who evidently take the words and acts of talk show hosts very seriously indeed. (Fallon treated Michelle Obama in kidding fashion as well, without any liberal hand-wringing.)

Pitch is a show about the first ever female Major League Baseball player. A funny premise, since the fastest pitch ever thrown by a woman was 69 mph, a feat easily reached, and frequently surpassed, by most male high school pitchers.

The last time we examined the structural changes at Univision, we looked at the internal pressures faced by the network as it tries to capture a larger share of the Millenial audience and expand its digital footprint- while still depending heavily on Spanish-language entertainment for ratings and revenue. Early signs point to a crackup.

Washington, D.C. — Late Thursday night, a boisterous crowd of 800 conservatives and guests packed the National Building Museum for the Media Research Center’s 2016 Gala featuring the DisHonors Awards and after awarding the best of the worst in four categories, Melissa Harris-Perry emerged as the overall winner for the most outrageous and pathetic quote by a liberal journalist. Harris-Perry earned the distinction after winning the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis Award earlier in the evening.

As Wednesday night's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN was giving live coverage to the riots in Charlotte, North Carolina, correspondent Ed Lavandera was knocked to the ground by a rioter on live television at 9:16 p.m. ET as he recalled that police had just recently used tear gas to get rioters to move further from the Omni Hotel.

The last thing teenaged kids need is their mother to shame them on the Internet — and as part of her making a living, no less.
But that's what's apparently been going on for some time with feminist writer Jody Allard and her two teenaged sons, currently 16 and 18. Her most recent callout came a week ago at the Washington Post, where she sharply criticized them — even though she weakly allowed that they "are good boys" — because they don't buy into her extreme outlook on "rape culture." This leads one to wonder where the genuine adults are at the Post. How could they let a mother expose her children's private thoughts to the whole wide world without saying, "Uh, we can't publish that"?

Snopes.com was checking out a story the liberal media doesn’t want to touch: “Hanan al-Hroub, whose husband was jailed for providing chemicals used in making bombs that killed Israelis, was invited to speak at a Clinton Global Initiative dinner.” Ruling: True.
So the liberal media thrills at any chance to associate Donald Trump with David Duke, but it can’t possibly find the newsworthiness in the Clinton Foundation honoring the wife of a terrorist bomb-maker. Only The Wall Street Journal has touched the story.

Cameron Cawthorne at the Washington Free Beacon offered a clear case for the "fact checkers" at PolitiFact and other sites of a Bill Clinton fib on CNBC. He claimed that "we make everything public, we disclose everything" in the land of Clinton philanthropy. This turns out to be Trumpian bluster.
Clinton also slammed the political press for having "no previous exposure to the way we work," which clearly can't include the many "mainstream media" stars, like Anderson Cooper and George Stephanopoulos, who've been moderators or panelists at CGI events, adding celebrity glamour to the proceedings.

At the onset of his monologue on Wednesday, ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel offered a rather lame excuse for why he sticks almost exclusively to joking about Donald Trump and not Democratic presidential opponent Hillary Clinton because she’s too “boring” to be made fun of. If that head-shaking moment wasn’t enough, CBS’s Late Show host Stephen Colbert offered a quip via video that Gollum from Lord of the Rings was assisting Clinton in her debate preparations by playing Trump and whining about “wicked, tricksy immigrants.”
