The Democratic National Committee’s Director of Communications, Luis Miranda, is in some serious hot water over revelations of emails that show him criticizing some of the Democratic Party’s staunchest pro-amnesty allies as “irresponsible” for their position in favor of blanket refugee status for all border-crossers from Central America.

Only the sex-obsessed writers at Cosmopolitan could try that line out. There are a lot of ways to try to defend the Clintons, but that’s not one. In the article The Clintons and the Reality of a Long Marriage, the women’s magazine attempts to make the case that the Clinton’s marriage is actually one that everyone should look up to. Apparently, hating philandering men is no longer a part of the feminist agenda. At least, as long as one’s wife is running for president.

They’re calling it the feel-good romantic hit of the summer, or at least of the Democratic convention. Bill Clinton’s long, granular tribute to Hillary Rodham Clinton had several liberal pundits swooning. Dahlia Lithwick of Slate wrote that it was during this speech that “for the first time…most of us met” Hillary, whom “we have all been following and misunderstanding and cartooning for decades now.” Rebecca Traister of New York magazine gave Bill big props for reminiscing about how Hillary turned him on: "One of the roadblocks for women is objectification and sexualization, but when it comes to Hillary Clinton, whose ambition and brains have long rendered her bloodless in the American imagination, hearing her described as an object of desire could feel corrective and bizarrely just. So he did it."

On Tuesday, Harris County's prosecutor in Texas dropped the remaining criminal charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress. This ended a clearly politically motivated attempt to turn the tables on the pro-life heroes who showed that Planned Parenthood was trafficking in fetal body parts for compensation.

Predictably, the Associated Press did not handle the news well, essentially claiming that the CMP pair weren't prosecuted because of a "technicality," and continuing the myth propagated by Planned Parenthood by presenting as a supposedly indisputable fact that "The organization has said it never has and never would sell fetal tissue."

Introducing a glowing profile of Hillary Clinton’s political career on Thursdays’s NBC Today, special correspondent Tom Brokaw fondly recalled the first time he heard of the Clintons: “40 years ago, when I was doing the Today show, I began to hear about this bright young couple down in Arkansas. Everybody was talking about maybe he'll run for president some day and everybody said he’s got this terrific wife.”

The CBS This Morning crew, on Thursday, couldn’t contain their glee over Barack Obama’s speech. CBS correspondent Nancy Cordes began her piece on the speech as she exclaimed “It was pretty remarkable. The President of the United States essentially pulled the rhetorical fire alarm.” Cordes finished her report by holding up celebratory headlines from the Philadelphia papers and then threw it to the This Morning co-anchors to chime in

Credit must be given where it’s due. Turns out Republicans aren’t the only ones who can find comedic relief in this week’s Democratic convention. Following last week’s episode at the RNC, Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che hosted their Weekend Update sketch from Philadelphia Wednesday night.

CNN New Day co-host Chris Cuomo got his own thrill up his leg during his trip to the liberal Disneyland known as the DNC this week. During the morning coverage on Thursday’s program, Cuomo could barely hold his excitement over the President’s comments regarding GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Longtime liberal hack Cokie Roberts made an appearance on Good Morning America Thursday morning, back to her usual shtick of defending Clinton and bashing those “racist” Republicans. During a segment on Chelsea Clinton, who will speak at tonight’s DNC event, Roberts argued that the public was wrong in its perception of Hillary Clinton as “inauthentic” before throwing in a punch at Republicans as the non- “diverse” party.

Someone suggested the news media offer the “first draft of history,” but at Democratic conventions, the “first draft” loses all historical perspective in the romance of the moment. When Obama speaks, liberal reporters sense a harmonic convergence of the planets and start putting this president on Mount Rushmore.

NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell won Quote of the Day hands-down for Wednesday by insisting we’ve never had a president “save Lincoln, who is great a speechwriter as this man.” This not only carves Obama into granite, it assumes no one helped him write this speech. She needed Keith Olbermann to say “Steady, steady....” as he did as Chris Matthews announced the thrill up  his leg.

In a cozy interview with Chelsea Clinton, aired on Thursday’s NBC Today, about her mother’s upcoming speech at the Democratic National Convention,, co-host Matt Lauer fretted over Republican attacks on Hillary Clinton: “As a daughter, Chelsea...what was it like to sit and watch a television and hear people in an arena chanting ‘lock her up,’ hear Donald Trump say ‘crooked Hillary’? How do you digest that?"

Ready to push its agenda whenever possible, ABC spent more than 20 minutes interviewing gay activist Dustin Lance Black, who was in Philly for the dedication of a new historic LGBT marker. But when the conversation turned to national security, Black’s comments were predictably liberal, touching on “diversity” and “making one with Muslim Americans.”

The activist and gay CNN columnist LZ Granderson met for ice cream at Philadelphia's oldest parlor, Franklin Fountain. As the two talked, Granderson's colleague asked Black to address a common question from viewers watching the live Facebook feed. "The relationship with your conversation here about the history of the LGBT community, uh, how does this fit into the national security debate that's currently going around in politics especially after what we saw unfortunately in Orlando recently?"

If the all-star fawning by MSNBC personalities such as Brian Williams and Chris Matthews over President Obama’s DNC speech wasn’t enough, former McCain/Palin campaign manager Steve Schmidt ruled Thursday night that the speech was “one of the most extraordinary political speeches ever given by anyone at any time” and NBC News correspondent/MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell proclaimed that Obama is the best speechwriter president since Abraham Lincoln.

The crew at MSNBC late Wednesday were locked and loaded to respond to President Barack Obam’s speech to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and didn’t disappoint as breaking news anchor Brian Williams informed everyone that “we will not see his kind again” before Rachel Maddow ruled that “[t]here’s nothing else like him” while Hardball host Chris Matthews admitted that “it’s pretty well known I’ve always gone for this guy.”
