With the first 2016 presidential debate just minutes away on Monday, the pro-Hillary Clinton panelists on CNN’s Debate Night in America were firing on all cylinders. “It is very, very difficult to become a master of a single policy area,” stated CNN contributor Van Jones, “She is the Michael Jordan of policy in multiple, multiple areas and we almost treat it like it's a bad thing.”

During one of the many tense moments in Monday’s presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee was on the defensive when Trump blasted her inability to produce any tangible results on fighting ISIS and so Clinton implored her friends in the liberal media and especially “the fact-checkers” to “get to work” on Trump.

Minutes before the pre-debate instructions commenced on Monday’s first 2016 presidential debate, MSNBC personality Lawrence O’Donnell griped to his cohorts and viewers that rules and time limits make it “actually more burdensome” for the more substantive candidate while the debates showcase “no actual presidential skills” for who would be best for the job.

Just prior to Monday's debate, Chris Matthews used a very odd historical and anatomical analogy while talking about Hillary Clinton. Talking to Mike Pence, the Hardball anchor, essentially, wondered if Donald Trump will have a “kick him in the balls” attitude towards Clinton. Matthews blurted, “Bobby Kennedy back in '60 when his brother was about to debate Nixon in the great debate, he gave him a last-minute piece of advice. He said — I can't say it exactly to what he said — but he said, ‘Kick him in the you know where.’”

Charlie Hoffmann at the Washington Free Beacon found MSNBC anchor Kate Snow pulling a mental muscle on national television today. She claimed Trump has never been on a debate stage with a female candidate. We know that liberals have a hard time conceding that conservative women count as real women, but facts are facts.  This inaccuracy comes from the people who insist journalists need to be fact checkers in these debates.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, NBC correspondent Katy Tur denounced Donald Trump’s campaign team for demanding fair treatment from the press ahead of the upcoming debate: “So what they’re trying to do is find a way to best game this system. And what you’re seeing on TV, all over the airwaves, is his campaign manager and his surrogates trying to blame the media before the media has even covered the debate.”

On Monday’s Today, co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie conducted back-to-back interviews with Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook and Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.

With the first presidential debate right around the corner CNN’s Brian Stelter amped up his call for debate moderators to be fact-checkers, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources. Of course, most of his concern is focused on Donald Trump with Hillary Clinton being an afterthought, seeing as he lambasted NBC’s Matt Lauer for not doing it. “Does a unique candidate like Donald Trump require a different kind of moderating,” Stelter inquired to veteran debate moderator Jim Lehrer.

On display Sunday morning was the latest example of how the dominant media are grossly misinforming viewers about police shootings and the issue of race as veteran singer and liberal activist Harry Belafonte claimed that "all" of those being "murdered" are "black or African-American." He  appeared as a guest on PoliticsNation on MSNBC to plug his upcoming event promoting political activism.
