Our weekly look at the loudest screech from the mainstream media features Newsweek/Daily Beast editor Tina Brown who in an online post slapped Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's critics like conservative John Bolton after she fell ill.

"The idea of losing Hillary has seemed especially unbearable at this political moment. It's as if she has become, literally, the ship of state," she wrote. "What a disgrace that John Bolton and his goaty Republican ilk accused Her Magnificence of inventing a concussion to get out of testifying at the Benghazi hearings. Bolton is not fit to wipe her floor with his mustache."

Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: "'Her Magnificence?' It's no wonder she drove Newsweek into the ground with that kind of fawning over a liberal hero while denigrating a respected conservative foreign policy expert. Brown just shows that as soon as Hillary Clinton announces for president, the press corps is ready to move smoothly from Obamagasms to Hillary-gasms. Brown just got a head start."
