Energy & Environmental Legal Institute released new documentation showing what it called “collusion” between the Environmental Protection Agency, environmentalist groups and even reporters.

FOIA-ed emails obtained by E&E Legal, the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Jeb Harmon showed that the EPA’s Michael Goo used a private email account to correspond with individuals about EPA business. People contacting him through his private emails included lobbyists, eco-groups like the Sierra Club, Clean Air Task Force and National Resources Defense Council and journalists.

“Dozens of emails leave no doubt that moving select correspondence about EPA-related business to non-official email accounts was an understood, deliberate and widespread practice in the Obama EPA,” the report compiled by attorney Chris Horner stated.

Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch tore into Hillary Clinton’s policies on Squawk Box, arguing that her push for climate justice was de facto “lawyer protection." "Basically what it is, it just takes care of the lawyers,” Welch said on Sep. 20 of Clinton’s plan to promote “climate justice.”

Following the two weekend terrorist attacks carried out by naturalized US citizens, the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general announced Monday that 800 individuals slipped through the cracks and were wrongly granted citizenship. And yet, ABC and NBC failed to report it that evening, while CBS buried it in a Donald Trump report with no context.

When it comes to covering the economy under President Obama, the broadcast networks have a habit of covering good economic news, but glossing over or ignoring bad economic news. It turns out coverage of income and poverty data from the Census got the same treatment with all three networks covering “great news” on Sept. 13, 2016. However, a year earlier only CBS Evening News covered the data showing stagnant income and poverty rates. Even that show waited days to report the news.

Just as they did Wednesday morning, the liberal “Big Three” networks steered clear of any of the more deeply personal attack against the Clintons in former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s e-mails, while continuing to rail against Donald Trump that evening. Despite hyping Powell calling Trump a "national disgrace," ABC, CBS, and NBC all ignored how Powell accused former President Bill Clinton of “dicking bimbos at home.”

The Obama administration has long argued that Iran nuclear agreement would lead to smoother negotiations and interactions with the country. “Now, under questioning from Fox News, the Obama administration is allowing for the possibility that they were wrong,” announced Special Report anchor Bret Baier Tuesday, “And that the nuclear deal may be making the behavior of the Iranian regime worse.” Even with such a shocking change in position the “Big Three” networks failed to report it.

In early August, the Wall Street Journal reported that "The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran." Two weeks later, the administration acknowledged that the cash "was used as 'leverage' to gain the release of American prisoners" — that is, in layman's terms, the cash payment was ransom.

Make that "cash payments" — plural.

The headline at a video posted by the Washington Free Beacon is a real jaw-dropper: "CNN Fact Check Confirms Clinton Aide Destroyed Mobile Devices With Hammers." What?

The key part of the video, in its second half, shows the network's Brooke Baldwin as very skeptical — I would say disbelieving, to the point where she wouldn't stop loudly saying "Hang on" until the guests stopped talking — when Donald Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn stated that "They (Team Clinton) destroyed Blackberrys with hammers in the State Department." Baldwin went to CNN's Evan Perez for confirmation "on the fly." The answer: Hillary's aide did exactly what Epshteyn contended.

It's hard to imagine a press report accomplishing the following three things at once: disrespecting U.S. servicemen, demonstrating fever-swamp presumptive support for the one-world "climate change" agenda, and vastly overstating a 2.4-mile atoll's significance to "native tradition."

In a Tuesday morning dispatch, the Associated Press's Josh Lederman, in covering President Barack Obama's visit to Midway Island, was up to the task.

A huge story broke by Politico early Thursday morning exposes how Bill Clinton exploited a federal program for former president to grease the wheels of the Clinton Foundation. “Bill Clinton's staff used a decades-old federal government program … to subsidize his family’s foundation and an associated business, and to support his wife’s private email server,” Politico reported. As shocking as the new revelation is, the “Big Three” networks gave the incendiary story a wide berth during their evening broadcasts.

In a major story broke by the New York Post Wednesday, it came to light that Hillary Clinton had sent an e-mail from her private server containing classified material months after she left office. According to the Post the message contained information about the “123 Deal” with the United Arab Emirates but, “was heavily redacted upon its release by the State Department because it contains classified information.” And as would be expected, the ABC, CBS, and NBC took a pass on the shocking new development during their evening news programs.

In Bangladesh on Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry had a concern about media coverage of terrorism he felt he needed to communicate, namely that "the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much." That would be a great thing, apparently, because then "People wouldn’t know what’s going on." You can't make this stuff up.

The dateline location at Diplomatic Writer Matt Lee's August 29 story at the Associated Press on Kerry's related speech indicates that he is accompanying the Kerry entourage on his current trip. Lee, who has acquired a reputation as a pesky questioner at State Department briefings in DC, failed to include Kerry's media-related remark, obviously the most controversial element in his speech, in his report. This move by a veteran reporter at the nation's de facto gatekeeping wire service likely influenced the three major broadcast networks, as Curtis Houck at NewsBusters noted Tuesday evening, to almost completely ignore Kerry's remark in their recent newscasts.
