Following a Thursday report pushing Democratic Party concerns about Senate Republicans having lunch at the White House to discuss impeachment, CBS White House correspondent Ben Tracy shared additional concerns that an impeachment trial in the Senate could keep Democratic candidates off the campaign trail. But the larger problem that didn’t seem to cross his mind, was the fact that President Trump’s 2020 opponents would be voting to remove him from office.



Fresh off his time in the spin room following Wednesday’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews partnered with a team of liberal sycophants on Thursday to wax poetic that, in this impeachment inquiry, Democrats haven’t been partisan in presenting evidence in arguing for the impeachment (and removal) of President Trump.



The liberal broadcast networks seemed in good spirits Thursday evening following the final day of televised impeachment hearings. Their jubilation came as part of a moment during the testimony of former White House Ukraine adviser Dr. Fiona Hill supposedly “blasting Republicans for spreading a conspiracy theory about Ukraine interfering in the 2016 election,” as NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt suggested.



Univision anchor Jorge Ramos is at it again, telling foreign media what he really thinks of his primary audience in the United States. As usual, his ire is directed at Hispanics who dare stray from orthodoxy and, for varying reasons, either stay away from Democrats or outright support Donald Trump.



In the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement that the Donald Trump administration was essentially reversing the Barack Obama policy of declaring Israeli settlements as illegal, most of the dominant media have inaccurately claimed that Trump has reversed "decades" or "40 years" of U.S. policy on the matter.



In the aftermath of the guilty verdict for former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) for sham book sales, New York Times editor Emily Eakin ran a slanted history of politicians who previously got into supposedly similar “book trouble.” (Meanwhile, Clintons and Obamas make multi-million dollar book deals with virtually no press scrutiny.)



I recommend Washington Post articles about as often as I check my horoscope. But every once in a while the stars align … so I’ll say Maura Judkis’s Post piece on the astrology trend among young people is worth a look. Not for what it tells us about astrology, but what it says about millennials -- or a certain cohort of them. 



CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin continued the media's recent history of poor impeachment predictions on Thursday when he said predicted that Dr. Fiona Hill would testify that Russia interfered in the 2016 election for the purposes of electing Donald Trump.

 


The New York Times conceded a crucial point that flies in the face of liberals who want to tax the ultra-rich and redistribute wealth.



Whether it was Lyin’ Brian still having a job, an array of takes on Joe Biden’s latest gaffe, Joy Reid suggesting unifying the country wasn’t important, or Michael Moore being Michael Moore, MSNBC’s post-debate coverage had it all late Wednesday and early Thursday. And in the closing segment, their final thoughts started off on well with Hardball host Chris Matthews warning Democrats for alienating Americans on cultural issues and often being too demeaning to America as an idea. But things were quickly thrown away by Moore, Reid, and Schmidt.



Womp. Womp. Chris Cuomo has a law degree, right? What’s that rule about not asking questions you don’t know the answer to? The award for CNN’s most cringe worthy moment (as of all day Wednesday) goes to none other Cuomo after he tried to prove the case against Donald Trump.
 



Facebook has become more open to some policies that the right has fought for. “President Donald Trump hosted a previously undisclosed dinner with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook board member Peter Thiel at the White House in October,” Facebook reportedly told NBC News yesterday. A Facebook spokesman told NBC News,“As is normal for a CEO of a major U.S. company, Mark accepted an invitation to have dinner with the President and First Lady at the White House.”



Worried that Democrats have not yet made a successful case for the impeachment of President Trump, during NBC’s special coverage of the hearings on Thursday, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd urged Democrats to expand the testimony and call more witnesses. He insisted that “there’s more bread crumb trails to follow” and that Democrats still need a “closer.”



If the idea behind wall-to-wall broadcast and cable news coverage of the Democrats’ impeachment hearings was to shift public opinion, then it’s not looking good for the Democrats. According to Nielsen, the numbers have steadily edged lower throughout these hearings: 13.1 million for Day 1; 12.7 million for Day 2; 12.2 million for Day 3; and now 11.4 million for Day 4. That’s an erosion of about 13% during the course of the hearings.



Liberals complain about Big Tech platforms that allow for free and unfettered speech in political advertising. It seems as though some of these companies are listening. Google announced on Nov. 20 that it was restricting microtargeting on election ads on the platform.
