During an exclusive interview aired on Wednesday’s NBC Today, Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine struggled to respond to Hillary Clinton’s ongoing e-mail scandal as co-host Savannah Guthrie actually grilled him on the topic. She pressed: “This is something that dogs Hillary Clinton, whether or not people trust her. If you look at what she said over the past year or so about her e-mail, I can count at least four statements that just turned out not to be true. Has she earned that mistrust?”

Two networks. Two vice presidential candidates. Same questions. Today co-host Savannah Guthrie on Friday interviewed Mike Pence and urged the Republican to trash Donald Trump. On CBS This Morning, Norah O’Donnell talked to Tim Kaine and urged the Democrat to trash... Donald Trump. She did not demand that Kaine bash Hillary Clinton. Instead she asked if Trump was “sane” and “competent.”

Wednesday night's coverage of protests outside the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia delivered by Fox Business Network and the Associated Press could hardly have differed more.

FBN reported "thousands" of angry protesters oustide who were in no way mollified by Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Clinton or calls for unity. Geoff Mulvhill and Megan Trimble at the AP only described "tension ... that lingered in pockets of Philadelphia" during a "mostly quiet Day 3," and claimed there were only "hundreds" outside.

Estas últimas dos semanas los televidentes de Univisión han sido testigos de dos enfoques sorprendentemente diferentes a la cobertura dedicada a los candidatos de los dos partidos políticos principales para vicepresidente de Estados Unidos, el gobernador de Indiana, Mike Pence y el senador de Virginia, Tim Kaine.

Despite it drawing nowhere near the same levels of enthusiasm that other speeches drew in the 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC) thus far, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC went into full spin mode late Wednesday hailing vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine’s personality as a “suburban dad” whose “extraordinary” Spanish-speaking skills made for “a Spanish lesson down here.”

In a fawning report on Wednesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Peter Alexander celebrated Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate ahead of his address to the Democratic National Convention: “Hillary Clinton is really doubling down on the value of a political resume in this pick of Senator Tim Kaine, who's governed at almost every level....Tonight the theme is ‘Working Together,’ and Kaine's friends tell me he would make the perfect partner.”

These past two weeks, Univision viewers have witnessed two strikingly different approaches to the initial coverage dedicated to the two major party candidates for Vice President of the United States, Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Virginia Senator Tim Kaine.

Scott Pelley and the CBS This Morning crew, on Monday, made the sales pitch for Hillary Clinton’s Tim Kaine VP selection. The CBS Evening News anchor, invited on to recap his 60 Minutes interview with the Democratic ticket, proclaimed of the pair “they look terrific” and “they were finishing each other’s sentences.” His CBS colleague Charlie Rose hailed they had “perfect chemistry.”

Monday on Morning Joe, the conversation jumped from the DNC email scandal to Hillary Clinton’s VP Choice of Tim Kaine. Co-host Joe Scarborough insisted that the news on DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her inappropriate email etiquette “stepped on” the selection of Tim Kaine, but that didn’t stop the panelists from praising the pair as the first day of the Democratic National Convention kicked off in Philadelphia.

Monday’s New York Times highlighted Democratic “discord” on the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, as outrage about the contents of a massive email leak from the Democratic National Committee, showing the DNC colluding to scuttle the insurgent campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton. But a “White House Letter” from Julie Hirschfeld Davis was more congenial to Democratic feelings: “Obama: A Character Witness and a Prominent Clinton Convert.” Meanwhile, the Times can’t decide if Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine is a liberal or a centrist (sometimes he’s both within two sentences).

The real test for fair and balanced coverage isn’t the amount of airtime, but the spin reporters employ in reaction to the speeches and events at each convention. Using media coverage of last week’s Republican convention as a template, here are five ways the media can prove they’re not biased by treating the Democrats in a similar fashion.

Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's Meet the Press, NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell praised Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine as "heroic" on the issue of guns because of his history of supporting more gun control. After far-left panel member and MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow questioned whether he really was "progressive," Mitchell jumped in to brag on Kaine's left-wing credentials: "Well, on guns, he was always there. He was heroic in Virginia on gun laws."
