Today's installment of Stupid Fact Checks again goes after Politifact, this time on two items in one "fact check." First, the web site's Louis Jacobson claims that Michelle Obama couldn't possibly have been talking about the Clintons on August 12, 2007 when she told an audience about the importance of a First Family serving as a "role model" in the White House. It's obvious to any human without blinders that she was.

Second, Jacobson claims that he doesn't remember "'vicious' attack ads from Obama during the 2008 campaign." That's because he didn't look very hard, if at all.

On Bill Press's radio and Free Speech TV show, D.C. nonvoting congressional representative Eleanor Holmes Norton proved that Michelle Obama's recent admonition that "when they go low we stay high" is something the left pretends to advocate in theory but almost never follows in practice.

Moments after quoting Ms. Obama, Ms. Norton, who no one will mistake for a supermodel, began making insulting, derogatory comments about the appearance of women present at the second presidential debate who are hostile to the Clintons.

On WMAL's Mornings on the Mall on Thursday, CNN's Jake Tapper revealed his "understanding" about what happened surrounding the leaked town hall question to the Hillary Clinton campaign: "This was a Roland Martin follow-up. So, my understanding is that he, or...somebody on his team got that question to Donna Brazile." Brazile apparently then sent question to Hillary Clinton's campaign, as revealed by Wikileaks' release of John Podesta's e-mails on Tuesday.

Nearly all the attention toward WikiLeaks' release of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign has focused on what's contained in the correspondence. It's what is conspicuously absent from them that is also worthy of scrutiny.

On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh demonstrated one of the reasons he continues to draw the biggest audience in the industry -- by pointing out something no one else apparently noticed that, in hindsight, appears obvious.

NPR's Morning Edition on Thursday donated four minutes of air time to pro-abortion group EMILY's List, and helped it promote its ad blitz to elect Hillary Clinton and other left-wing Democrats. Renee Montagne played a clip from one of the organization's ads, and gave its president, Stephanie Schriock, a platform to hype Mrs. Clinton as a "a champion for women and families."

Before there was Anti-Trump Psychosis, before there was Bush Derangement Syndrome, it was Ronald Wilson Reagan who could be counted on to derail liberals from the semblance of reality they occasionally cling to.

The years since Reagan left the White House, and the country in far better shape than when he took office, have lessened the left's visceral loathing for a statesman who ended the Cold War without reeling off a shot, after American liberals for decades repeatedly apologized for the Evil Empire instead of seeing it for the mass-murdering monstrosity that it was.

On NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday, John Burnett hyped the objections of a few residents of Gonzales, Texas to gun rights backers' use of the town's slogan from the Texas Revolution. Burnett played up how "some Gonzalians are taken aback to see that Second Amendment activists have appropriated 'Come and Take It,' and substituted an assault rifle for their hallowed cannon." However, he failed to explain that the slogan has its roots in the reply of a king from ancient Greece, who rebuked an enemy's demand to disarm.

On Tuesday night, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell joined FNC’s The Kelly File and spoke with host Megyn Kelly to urge caution on the part of conservatives and Republicans in blaming conservative media figures like Rush Limbaugh for Donald Trump’s candidacy by pointing out that, no matter what individuals him say, they face scrutiny from the liberal media or anyone who didn’t back the eventual nominee.

The “right-wing noise machine” helped make a mess for Republicans by giving “invaluable aid” to Donald Trump, declared Jeet Heer in a Friday piece. Nonetheless, Heer thinks that one positive consequence of Trump’s nomination is that “some in conservative media are…taking stock of how their own bad habits have enabled an unfit demagogue to become their party’s standard-bearer.” Heer proposed a “reform agenda that could fix conservative journalism,” which included his idea that “conservative pundits need to become more intellectually honest and not knee-jerk in dismissing mainstream outlets as inherently biased.”

NPR loves to imagine itself as an oasis of civility compared to nasty commercial talk radio. NPR host Diane Rehm has written haughty op-eds about how Rush Limbaugh et al are a blight on the radio. But wondering if Donald Trump is mentally ill? Apparently, that's civil and educational.

Rehm launched an hour-long discussion of Trump's dysfunctional mental state based on a Tuesday New York Times article about psychologists breaking the "Goldwater Rule" and diagnosing a dangerous presidential aspirant as nuts

Friday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC saw the latest insults hurled in the direction of conservatives and talk radio as co-host/failed talk radio host Joe Scarborough and liberal historian Jon Meacham blasted “the most extreme voices in talk radio” from the past three decades for having “dumbed...down” the Republican Party and creating conspiracy theorists giving rise to Donald Trump making for a lack of “intellectual content.”

Friday's Morning Edition on NPR spotlighted Hillary Clinton's "very few and far between" press conferences during her presidential campaign so far. David Folkenflik pointed out how it's been "more than two months" since Mrs. Clinton was confronted about her lack of pressers, and how she "suggested there are other, better ways to hear from a candidate." Folkenflik contended, "Clinton may have a point." He also speculated that "why that's the case may have something to do with [her] debacle" during a March 2015 press conference where she stumbled over her e-mail scandal.
