Apparently, threats and taking hostages are all part of “peaceful” protesting, at least according to Dakota Access Pipeline protesters. Journalists Phelim McAleer and Magdalene Segieda learned that first hand after they were held hostage by protesters on Oct.18. Protesters grabbed at the reporters’ equipment, leading the journalists to hide in their car. McAleer and Segieda “feared for our lives” as protesters shook the car and yelled, “If you don’t come out we can’t control what’s gonna happen next.”

Ultra-left wing filmmaker Michael Moore appeared on ABC’s The View Monday, where he promoted his new film, Michael Moore in TrumpLand.  But, as the hosts pointed out, the film really was more about Hillary Clinton then it was about Donald Trump. Moore expressed shock that any reasonable person could not vote for Clinton, gushing that she was not just a great leader but also a great Christian. The best part of Clinton’s faith, Moore stressed, was that she was silent about it.

We all know the George W. Bush years were hard for liberals, but EPIX takes Bush Derangement Syndrome to a whole new level with their new original series Graves.

NBC on Monday spun the death of Tom Hayden, a ‘60s era radical activist who spouted pro-Communist propaganda, as an “enduring voice for progressive causes.” Matt Lauer simply referred to Hayden as someone who made “trips to North Vietnam,” but never described him as extreme. ABC’s Good Morning America also avoided such judgment. Only CBS This Morning referred to Hayden as a “radical activist.”

It has been more than five weeks since The Promise debuted at the Toronto Film Festival, but the independently financed historical romance has yet to secure a distributor. Producer Eric Esrailian believes the reason is Turkey’s strong genocide denialist lobby.

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.
