In the hours following President Barack Obama’s campaign stop for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday afternoon in Philadelphia, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was beyond giddy at the “magical” stump speech but he was later joined by Brian Williams, who declared on The 11th Hour that Obama will go down as “a communicator who can deliver” enthusiasm “unlike anything we have ever seen.”

Cyd Zeigler hit the NCAA from the left in a Tuesday post on Outsports for not going far enough in their move to take NCAA playoff games in several sports out of North Carolina over its "anti-LGBT 'HB2' law." Zeigler contended that "if the NCAA is serious, it is only a matter of time before BYU [Brigham Young University] gets kicked out of the association...[a]nd every other school with an anti-LGBT policy." The writer singled out several religious schools for having "policies...far more sinister and discriminatory than North Carolina."

Politico reporters Glenn Thrush and Brianna Ehley wasted little time demonstrating bias and their willingness to mislead readers in a story with the more-revealing-than-intended headline, "The Inside story of Clinton's sick day." Both were on display right out of the gate, in the first paragraph of the story.

Here's their lede -- "Hillary Clinton never lost consciousness, and never stopped talking on her phone -- and never put anyone else in danger -- after her near swoon at a Sept. 11 memorial on Sunday in New York, according to accounts offered by several people close to the candidate."

After CBS was caught editing footage of Bill Clinton saying Hillary Clinton “frequently” suffered from fainting spells, the network was back at it on Wednesday, again censoring unflattering news for the Democratic couple. While reporting on leaked e-mails from former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King conveniently stopped reading from one correspondence just before Powell referred to Bill Clinton’s sex scandals.

According to a new poll by Gallup, Americans’s trust in their media fell to a shocking new low. Asked if they believe the press will “report the news fully, accurately and fairly,” a meager 32 percent answered in the affirmative. Gallup’s Art Swift noted, “This is down eight percentage points from last year.”

There is no such thing as too far when it comes to liberals speaking out against Donald Trump. Take celebrities Rob Reiner, Chelsea Handler, Bill Maher, or pretty much anyone else for that matter. To add to the most recent Trump bashing, at the end of an interview with Billboard, rapper Mac Miller bemoaned that “it’s a fucking real possibility that he could become president of the United States …” In 2013, Miller came out with his song, “Donald Trump,” which became his first song to make the Bilboard Hot 100 chart. It also went Platinum.

Conservatives are fighting to protect the internet, even as the government prepares to hand control to foreign countries.

According to Politico, Sept. 14 is the first day of hearings on Sen. Ted Cruz’s Protecting Internet Freedom Act. The act would keep the government from removing itself from internet framework oversight without congressional approval.

Remember Planned Parenthood’s claim that abortions make up only 3 percent of its services rendered? Well that’s extremely misleading. And Live Action has just come out with a video that makes the deception patently clear.

Released September 14, the video explained Planned Parenthood’s devious route to arriving at its broadcasted statistic. Live Action then does the math to show that 12.5 percent of women who visit the organization will receive an abortion.

When Iowa Republican Representative and Donald Trump supporter Steve King appeared as a guest on Wednesday's New Day to discuss Trump's plan to use the tax code to assist families with children, host Chris Cuomo managed to redirect the conversation off to a discussion of gay rights for a significant portion of the interview. The CNN host insisted that research shows that homosexual couples "are doing just as well if not better than" families with both a father and mother in raising children, and declared: "There is not a reason to believe that you have to have a man and woman to do that...."

The three networks generally don’t hold back in slamming Donald Trump, highlighting his controversies and scandals. But when the liberal candidate offers up policy prescriptions that echo theirs, ABC, CBS and NBC are silent. On Wednesday, none of the networks offered any conservatives critiques on Trump’s new federally mandated maternity leave plan. In fact, ABC hit the businessman from the left, worrying it didn’t go far enough.

“Hillary Clinton is human. Hillary Clinton got sick,” Time writer (and apparent Clinton fangirl) Darlena Cunha began in an article that appeared on TIME magazine’s blog Motto Tuesday. Cunha, who also writes for the Washington Post, New York Times and the Atlantic, structured her article around the premise that anyone who questions Clinton’s health is bigoted against a woman who is expected to do too much. Cunha completely misses the whole point of why people care about Clinton’s health and instead dismisses the attention on the topic as sexism and undue scrutiny.

The Dakota Access pipeline has attracted a host of liberal protesters including Black Lives Matter, in addition to the many Native American groups upset by the pipeline’s proximity to their lands. Over Labor Day weekend, protesters trespassed by entering the construction area, confronted security — some even threw rocks at security — and vandalized equipment.

Hillary Clinton’s collapse into a van on September 11 -- somehow "overheated" on a mild New York morning -- overturned the liberal media elite’s dismissal of any questioning of her health or stamina. They disdained all that as a Donald Trump series of insults and conspiracy theories. There were no apologies or admissions that perhaps they were wrong.

But their treatment of Hillary's blood clot at the end of 2012 demonstrated they had no real interest in pressing her on health issues -- even as she used them to delay testifying on Benghazi for weeks.

In the latest proof that progressives have gone bat-guano crazy, American author Lionel Shriver was met with hostility as she took on opponents of cultural appropriation. On September 8 at the Brisbane, Australia Writers Festival, Shriver faced criticism for her keynote address condemning critics of cultural appropriation. The New York Times claimed her speech “belittled the movement against cultural appropriation.”

In reaction to Univision chief news anchor Jorge Ramos’ repeated statements in the media opposing the election of Donald Trump, an effort is underway to both highlight Ramos’ compromised coverage of the election, as well as bring pressure to bear on Univision to remove Ramos from the network’s news anchor desk between now and Election Day.
