Is it really a surprise that a liberal billionaire who spent $120 million on a “Need to Impeach” campaign is touting impeachment? Fox News reported Jan. 24, that “[2020 Democratic presidential candidate] Tom Steyer weighed in on the Senate impeachment trial Friday, urging Congress to allow the American people to hear from all relevant witnesses about President Trump's actions.”
During NBC News live special coverage of the Senate impeachment trial on Monday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd completely snapped while talking about Trump defense team lawyer Ken Starr, whom he compared to a “bank robber” and accused of having “define[d] impeachment downward” during the proceeding against Bill Clinton.
The journalists at ABC on Monday made little effort to hide their contempt for “surreal” “instigator” Ken Starr as he lead part of the defense for Donald Trump during the impeachment trial. Stephanopoulos, who it must be reminded is a former Bill Clinton White House operative, sputtered, “I have to say it was breathtaking, maybe even a little surreal to see Ken Starr take on the age of impeachment comparing impeachment to war, calling it hell, when he was the chief instigator of President Clinton's impeachment.”
One of the internet’s foremost tech journalists has tried to call out one of Trump’s tweets as potentially “problematic” and also blasted the GOP on impeachment. Recode co-founder and New York Times contributor Kara Swisher is known for being openly liberal, and her recent tirades are far from the measured verbiage one might expect from a tech writer. On Jan. 27 she implied in a tweet via Twitter that president Trump had issued a threat, and called upon Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to observe it for himself: “Oh @jack for your list. The comma separated 'yet' seems potentially problematic. Just sayin’!
Monday on The View, the hosts defended NPR as an unbiased news outlet after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yelled at one of their reporters and called her dishonest after a contentious interview. Co-host Meghan McCain wondered if the spat was over the reporter’s liberal bias, the other hosts jumped in to defend NPR and its reporter as unbiased while claiming Pompeo was the one, “not telling the truth.”
So John Bolton is a good guy now. To anyone in Hollywood who even knew his name, Bolton was a dangerous war-mongering jingoist just yesterday. But the merest hint that something in his new book might lend a little iron to the Democrats’ anemic impeachment attempt has Tinsel Town lefties tweeting like Bolton fan-boys.
Mark Levin unleashed a blistering attack on the hypocrisy of the mainstream media, Sunday, using two Media Research Center montages to expose: “The Democrats are the reporters and the reporters are the Democrats.” On his Fox News program Life, Liberty & Levin, showed the double standard of politicians (and journalists): “‘No, no, no. You can't talk about Biden. You can't investigate the Bidens before an election, then you're interfering in an election.’ But you can investigate Trump all you want.”
In an effort to aid Democrats in prolonging the Senate impeachment trial, on Monday, all three networks seized on a supposed “bombshell” – though unverified – claim in former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s upcoming memoir. All the sensational coverage clearly designed to turn up the pressure on Republican senators to call witnesses.
CNN is grasping at straws to explain away Americans waning interest in the impeachment trial. On Reliable Sources Sunday, host Brian Stelter and his CNN colleagues Oliver Darcy and John Avlon blamed it on the “Fox firewall” which apparently keeps the right ignorant of Democrat arguments. Besides dismissing conservatives as indoctrinated, the liberal panel also attacked the Trump administration was “flabby snowflakes” who were used to preferential media treatment.
On Morning Joe, Democrat Donny Deutsch, panicked at the prospect of Bernie Sanders winning the nomination, says that Democrats who think Sanders can defeat President Trump are are "smoking something."
On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, Megyn Kelly and Alex Wagner combined to underline liberal media bias and how it's only metastasized under the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump.
It’s impeachment, impeachment, impeachment everywhere on news shows and even in some television programming that is supposed to be entertaining. Season three of Showtime’s Our Cartoon President by Stephen Colbert airing January 26 used the same theme with an episode titled “Impeachment.” How’s that for original thought?
The previous episode of CW’s Batwoman ended with the social justice hero herself admitting to the world that she is, in fact, a lesbian. This was apparently a huge deal despite this being 2020 and having nothing to do with being a superhero. It’s only naturally then that the show’s forced to introduce a homophobic police force to pretend having a lesbian lead really matters.
Here's another bad sign that the impeachment trial is flopping for Democrats in public opinion. Axios social-media guru Neal Rothschild worried out loud in an item headlined "Impeachment trial draws shrugs -- by design." That's not exactly by the Democratic design. It's a GOP conspiracy! "Interest in the Senate impeachment trial over its first three days was barely half as strong as the first three days of the House impeachment hearings" on social media.
Taking a breather from blaming the country’s division solely on right-leaning Americans and railing against moderate female Republican senators who had issues with the Democratic impeachment managers, NBC political director Chuck Todd took time during Sunday’s Meet the Press to share his dread for what President Trump would say if the Senate acquitted him.
