On Friday's Real Time, HBO host Bill Maher attacked presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence as someone who "hates poor people" and "super, super hates gay people," who, because being Catholic "wasn't oppressive enough," "became an evangelical Christian."

He then attacked Donald Trump and his son as "a**holes," and compared Trump's children to the infamous sons of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, calling them "Uday and Qusay."

On the first day of the Republican National Convention, ABC brought on a former colleague of Donald Trump and admitted “lifelong” liberal donor, to bash the presumptive Republican nominee. On Good Morning America Monday morning, George Stephanopoulos interviewed “The Art of the Deal” co-author Tony Schwartz, to talk about his recent scathing interview of Trump published in the New Yorker, where he called Trump a “sociopath.” Will ABC give the same treatment to Hillary Clinton next week at the DNC, with their guest choice?

If Donald Trump wants to build a wall, he might consider one around Hollywood. After all, the majority of The Hollywood Reporter’s list of top 100 influencers are progressive liberals who donate to democratic congressman, committees and candidates. Thus it is only natural that these movers and shakers have taken to movies, shows and music to revile Donald Trump in whatever way possible. They know they have a potent platform to incite change. In the words of activist actress Kerry Washington, “We have power in what we do.”

On Monday, economist turned partisan hack Paul Krugman recycled his pompous lecture against what he calls “false equivalence," by which he means journalistic fairness toward Republicans. Every one of his examples of “false equivalence” coincidentally involves a Republican allegedly getting a free-ride in the news media -- which would come as quite a shock for NewsBusters readers -- while Hillary Clinton is unfairly slammed at every turn. And media reporter Jim Rutenberg warned the television media off of potential coverage of Benghazi and Bill Clinton’s sex scandals at the Republican convention.

On Sunday's Meet the Press on NBC, former Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw seemed bewildered and frustrated that race relations in the U.S. haven't improved as much as he hoped they would by now.

Brokaw didn't consider his own network's significant and largely dishonest contribution to this situation during the past nearly 11 years.

It’s almost as if “Net Neutrality” is a Leftist safe word - to be uttered when the free market growing freely causes them too much discomfort.

Few things demonstrate the insular Media-Government Bubble better than this:

Former Univision News analyst and Univision America radio host Helen Aguirre-Ferre appeared on Sunday's Al Punto, in what was her return to the program since joining the RNC as Director for Hispanic Media. Her interview with host Jorge Ramos went pretty much as expected.

With NBC’s Today live in Cleveland Monday morning to cover the Republican National Convention, co-host Matt Lauer used the killing of three police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana over the weekend to denounce “inflammatory rhetoric” from Donald Trump: “...the President spoke out and basically said, ‘Look, we’ve got to turn down the inflammatory rhetoric’....you have Donald Trump calling the President ‘clueless’ and saying the nation is a ‘divided crime scene.’ Are we going to hear more of that in the convention hall behind us?”

In the July 18 edition of Notable Quotables: MSNBCs GOP convention co-anchor Rachel Maddow likens presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, while journalists wonder if Hillary Clinton was “over-targeted” on the e-mail scandal for a crime that isn't any worse than “jaywalking.” Plus: MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews wonders if Indiana Governor Mike Pence is too “churchy” for Trump to pick. And film director John McTieranan actually blames the “American hyper-masculnity” of Captain America for “hundreds of thousands” of deaths.

On Sunday, Fox News Channel’s Shepard Smith spoke to former Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal about the Baton Rouge ambush on law enforcement that took the lives of three officers and left another three wounded.  Right off the bat, Smith attacked Jindal for using the “divisive” phrase All Lives Matter. "Governor, you know that phrase you just used, is one that is seen by many as derogatory. Right?" He said "the semantics are just so unhelpful."

As anyone familiar with AMC’s Preacher is intimately aware, it takes a lot for a show based on gratuitously disgusting displays to rise to the level of actually needing to be called out. But Sunday’s episode reached that level.

On the eve of the Republican National Convention (RNC), the liberal media had wall-to-wall coverage of both the RNC preparations in addition to the horrible and deadly ambush of Baton Rouge, Louisiana police officers but amidst all the seriousness of the situations, there were a handful of utterly baffling comments from anchors and commentators across the liberal media that left viewers either laughing, shaking their heads or both.

Minutes after the press conferences, from local law enforcement and the White House, about the Baton Rouge police ambush and calling for the end of divisive language CNN’s Michael Smerconish smeared gun rights advocates on The Situation Room. “As you know and have been discussing, it's an open carry environment,” the pundit started Sunday, “And I'm concerned about the Trump rhetoric in firing up individuals who would be inclined to show up with their weapons as some second amendment solidarity movement.”

As Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus appeared as a guest on Sunday's This Week show on ABC, host George Stephanopoulos pressed the RNC chairman on whether Indiana Governor Mike Pence, as Donald Trump's running mate, would hurt the party with his pro-life views, and, after Priebus recalled the videos of Planned Parenthood selling aborted fetal tissue, the ABC host was in denial as he asserted that "There was never any proof of selling fetal parts."

Fox Sports 1’s Clay Travis did not suffer fools today, in the aftermath of yet another murderous attack on police officers. This time in Baton Rouge. Travis, also a trained lawyer, let the knowledge bombs fall.
