Absolutely everything in our media is expected to unite around electing Hillary Clinton. Before the fall season began, Politico ran an article headlined: “Will 'Saturday Night Live' take down Trump?” The subheadline was a quote from leftist Muslim comedian Dean Obeidallah: “Maybe it’s going to take comedians to do the job that cable news has relinquished for so much of the campaign.”
The Left expected NBC to crush Trump. When Matt Lauer failed to do it, they ranted. When Jimmy Fallon mussed Trump’s hair, they railed. When Lester Holt completely threw the first debate for Hillary, it was clear NBC had received the message. The first two weeks of Saturday Night Live also blatantly went to bat for Mrs. Clinton

On Friday afternoon, NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on Fox News on Your World with Neil Cavuto. The subject was the ongoing obsession with women charging Donald Trump with sexual harassment in the wake of the Access Hollywood tape where he boasted that a “star” could grope women and get away with it.
Host Neil Cavuto pointed out the dramatic divergence in TV coverage of Trump and sex vs. the emerging scoops coming out of the Clinton campaign e-mails posted on the Internet by Wikileaks.

The latest installment of "Stupid Fact Checks" involves the Associated Press, which appears to be determined to deny the truth of any statement, no matter how obviously correct, made by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump or running mate Mike Pence.
At Sunday's second debate, Trump said, "what President Clinton did, he was impeached, he lost his license to practice law, he had to pay an $850,000 fine to one of the women." The AP, as seen after the jump, claims Trump was wrong in saying Clinton "lost" his license:
Hypocritical Anita Hill Hagiographer (and Former NYT Head) Abramson Slams Sex Accusations vs. ClintonBy Clay Waters | | October 14, 2016 | 9:43 PM EDT
Former (and fired) New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, now a regular columnist for the left-wing British newspaper The Guardian, hypocritically dismissed three women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct in “Did the Hillary Clinton intimidate Bill's accusers? Let's look at the evidence.” The subhead: “Trump has tried to distract attention from his misogyny by throwing the spotlight on Jones, Willey and Broaddrick. It’s a dishonest and devious tactic.” Abramson’s dismissal of sexual harassment charges against political figures is particularly hypocritical from the woman who co-wrote “Strange Justice,” a smear job on Justice Clarence Thomas that sided with his accuser, Anita Hill.

100 years ago, as a result of the tireless efforts of Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood opened its doors for the first time. Although Sanger is memorialized by many women as a paragon of the feminist movement, she actually condoned eugenics, racism and state regimented family planning.

In an unusual turn of events, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was “very disappointed” that Jimmy Kimmel failed to ask her about UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) during an appearance on his late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! last November.
The reason? She had practiced her answer on the topic beforehand, according to an internal Clinton campaign email made public by WikiLeaks.

Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan hammered NBC News in her Friday column for taking so long to find the Access Hollywood sex-talk tape. Like many pundits, Sullivan’s not sure this 2005 tape is a fresh discovery: "What if that campaign-changing video — or something equally incriminating — had emerged during the Republican presidential primary, instead of sitting on a shelf at NBC’s Access Hollywood?"

Much is being made of The View host Joy Behar's outrageous smear earlier this week of three women who have accused Bill Clinton's sexual assault and unwanted sexual advances as "tramps." The blowback is richly deserved, especially because compelling evidence indicates that these women are the victims, not only of Bill Clinton, but of Hillary Clinton's enabling behavior and actions.
Behar has apologized for her remark, but her apology hardly excuses the tone of the discussion, which centered largely on characterizing Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Broaddrick not as victims — but as women who "slept with" Bill Clinton! Behar's apology also won't reverse her damning admission, seen at the end of the video segment posted after the jump, that Hillary Clinton "knows now that he (Bill Clinton) did those things" he has been accused of. Yes, that is what she said.

In a C-SPAN interview last August, NBC interviewer Lisa Myers said "Nothing has come up since that story was reported that in any way undercuts what Juanita Broaddrick said” about being raped by Bill Clinton in 1978.
Hillary has never been challenged to address her raging hypocrisy by a TV interviewer as she's tweeted self-righteously about believing every woman’s charge of a sexual assault. Last December, one of those "everyday Americans" asked her about it in New Hampshire (on video), and Mrs. Clinton said "I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence."

As we have reported before and will most certainly report again, there is an agenda at Univision that extends far beyond immigration, that goes well into the progressive policy basket. Here is yet another instance where a news anchor at that network is outspoken about his particular biases regarding an issue that he may later report on.

During back-to-back hostile interviews on CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today on Friday, Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence attempted to force the networks to actually cover the controversy swirling around the Wikileaks release of thousands of Clinton campaign e-mails. However, every time he raised the topic, the morning show hosts promptly cut him off.

During a Friday morning appearance on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co., Media Research Center president Brent Bozell called out the media for “secretly colluding with the Clinton campaign.” As evidence of this, Bozell pointed out the number of instances released in the WikiLeaks emails that pointed to collaboration between the Clinton Campaign and journalists, including “secretly colluding with the Clinton campaign, giving them veto power over their stories, teeing up stories for them.”
“Democracy can only survive if there is a free press,” Bozell observed, adding “How can you have an open, functioning democracy, when you have got the news media, not just withholding information from the public, but twisting, distorting and lying about information when they do present it?”

Last week NBC released a long-held sex talk tape about Donald Trump just in time to exert maximum damage against him. Now it has been revealed that NBC has held – and refuses to release – a seriously damaging video regarding Hillary Clinton’s threats against Juanita Broaddrick, the woman purportedly raped by Bill Clinton. In light of this news, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell released a scathing statement blasting NBC News.

Teen Vogue has declared Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards to be “the most badass feminist EVER.” To commemorate Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary, Teen Vogue asked Richards to be a part of its “Letter to My 18-Year-Old Self” series. In it, Richards spoke to a young freshman woman in college, preparing her “to fight your entire life for the right of you and every other woman to control her body …”
