While some of his liberal media colleagues were giving a megaphone to Democratic Senators demanding an FBI investigation into the attempted sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo was busy making false claims that the bureau had said nothing about not investigating the charges. But, in fact, they had declined to investigate.



In Wednesday's episode, "The Gang Beats Boggs: Ladies Reboot," the women of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia do the Wade Boggs Challenge of drinking 70 beers on a cross-country flight. The twist is that they go on an all-female flight (except for one male attendant) to California for the Women’s March, complete with pussy hats and feminist jargon.



MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews tried his best on Wednesday to help keep Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court nominee in the face of a three-decades-old sexual misconduct allegation, peddling a conspiracy theory about accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and promoted a dubious claim from a Ford classmate.



Reporting on poll results might seem like an easy task, especially during a midterm election. However, Politico's chief polling analyst Steven Shepard would benefit from revisiting the old adage that “there are lies, damn lies and statistics.” While reporting on the latest Politico/Morning Consult survey, Shepard stated that “one key demographic group -- Democratic women -- are turbocharged to vote in the midterms,” but there is no statistical difference between the percentage of Republican women (69%) and the percentage of Democratic women (71%) who say they are very motivated to vote.



In a sight that seemed unpredictable a few years ago, NBC host Megyn Kelly appeared on the Wednesday’s Hardball to inform MSNBC host Chris Matthews that, concerning the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford “is running out of options” and “needs to show up” for Monday’s scheduled hearing.



With time running out for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, to provide to some form of testimony with the Senate Judiciary Committee, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) spent their Wednesday evening broadcasts giving a boost to Democratic calls for an investigation into the Supreme Court nominee. Of course, they failed in their duty to inform their viewers that the FBI had already declined to investigate when the charges were brought to them over the weekend.



The New York Times had (through Wednesday morning) refrained from full-court partisanship in its coverage of last-minute sexual assault allegations concerning Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But the paper’s editorial page went full blast against Kavanaugh, devoting lead editorials on Tuesday and Wednesday to anti-Kavanaugh and anti-Republican sliming, beginning with the tasteless headline Tuesday, “#Brett Too?” Only that thin, cowardly question mark separating it from an utterly wretched smear.



The most recent edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto featured an interview with the governor of Puerto Rico on the eve of the first anniversary of Hurricane María’s catastrophic landfall upon the island territory. Host Jorge Ramos took the opportunity to further politicize the aftermath of the hurricane and push a hyperpartisan narrative.



During Tuesday’s The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham pointed out the hypocrisy of Democrats, who “howl for answers from Brett Kavanaugh in an opaque charge” while not “asking the same of DNC co-chair Keith Ellison,” who faces credible abuse allegations from a former girlfriend. Guest Monica Crowley described the Democrats’ double standard as “the rot of hypocrisy,” pointing out that in spite of a video and a police report, the Ellison case has received “little to no media coverage.”



Wednesday afternoon’s MSNBC Live illustrated where the left stood on the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco as host Katy Tur aired a video mash-up comparing Kavanaugh to other men such as the late Roger Ailes, Corey Lewandowski, Roy Moore, and Rob Porter because they too were firmly defended by President Trump as they faced their own allegations of sexual impropriety. In reality, Tur’s comparison is ghoulish at worst and, at best, misguided.



While watching live coverage of President Trump handing out meals to victims of Hurricane Florence in New Bern, North Carolina on Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi claimed that the event was “staged.” He was immediately corrected by the reporter on location who doubted that was the case.



Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders has at least one media champion for his Stop BEZOS Act. The bill, which is obviously targeting CEO Jeff Bezos of Amazon, would levy a 100 percent tax on companies in the amount their employees receive in federal benefits.



Sometimes, liberal media outlets set themselves up for an obvious joke. The New York Times on Monday announced that it wanted readers to send them examples of political disinformation being spread. You can probably guess that people responded with a variation of “Look in the mirror, New York Times!” It doesn’t help that the Times has been forced to make embarrassing, awkward corrections in the last week on high profile political topics.



A new study of YouTube exposed what it called a “conspiracy ecosystem” of content creators that tried to connect prominent conservatives with a well-known racist and package them together as “far-right” or “reactionary” “extremists.”



On Tuesday, two of Brett Kavanaugh’s high school classmates, each named by accuser Christine Blasey Ford as witnesses to the 1982 assault she alleges, issued public statements flatly denying that they saw anything even resembling Ford’s story. Yet on Wednesday, CNN viewers barely heard a peep about these denials, even as the Kavanaugh story dominated their on-air coverage. From 4:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN spent 3 hours and 23 minutes talking about the Kavanaugh controversy, but only a paltry eight minutes of that time was devoted to these confirmations of Kavanaugh’s unequivocal denial.
