In their Thursday evening reports on the Senate impeachment trial, both CBS and NBC marveled and touted the work of Democratic prosecutors. Together they declared it a “dramatic day” where a “damning portrait” was painted by Democratic prosecutors, and quipped that the time for President Trump’s legal team to speak “can't come soon enough.” Anchor Norah O’Donnell kicked off CBS Evening News with another opening tease featuring an oversized plug for their impeachment coverage.
Amidst Thursday’s dinner break in the Senate impeachment trial, MSNBC’s panel kept alive the boring, nonsensical, and predictable living love letter to the House Democratic impeachment managers, calling Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) “excellent” and equating his team to a thorough landscaping team mowing a lawn or a captivating episode of Wheel of Fortune (with Schiff as Vanna White).
Michael Moore experienced a moment of clarity during his podcast on Thursday, claiming that there seems to be a pattern that despite prideful Dems’ idea that they’re smarter than Republicans, they keep losing. Oh, it seems he has caught on to smug liberals’ terrible political strategy. The documentary-maker and self-appointed Trump doomsday prophet interviewed comedian and writer Katie Halper on his January 23 episode of Rumble With Michael Moore.
Another day, another afternoon break on CNN with an oversized panel pretending to be proud parents of the House impeachment managers trying to undo the 2016 election. In Thursday’s afternoon break, CNN analysts, correspondents, and hosts sang the praises of the “clever,” “good,” and “interesting session” that, among other things, bashed Fox News and defended Hunter Biden.
During a mid-afternoon break in the Senate impeachment trial on Thursday, both NBC and ABC brought on 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar for softball interviews. Anchors urged the Minnesota Senator to put pressure on her GOP colleagues to vote for witnesses and drag out the proceedings.
Telemundo ́s coverage of the Senate Impeachment Trial included both a new twist and a possible return to old, bad ways: singling out Republicans who call out liberal protesters for criticism, and portraying four, neatly arranged protesters as “dozens of protesters.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has announced a podcast where he and his co-host will discuss the latest updates on the Senate impeachment trial. Sen. Cruz tweeted the announcement of his new podcast Verdict on Jan. 22. He explained that it will feature himself and political commentator Michael J. Knowles discussing “the latest from the @realDonaldTrump #ImpeachmentTrial and more as soon as I leave the Senate floor… .”
The Washington Post’s “conservative blogger” Jennifer Rubin is at it again. This time she’s saying that liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg could help Democrats by using his vast wealth to support impeaching President Donald Trump.
“News analysis” is a euphemism in the New York Times (and other papers) for “editorial we want on the front page.” On Thursday, the paper echoed the hacky excitement shown by CNN and others over the Democratic impeachment managers. Here’s the headline from Thursday’s “news analysis”:
Freeform’s Good Trouble timed a random pro-abortion criticism of conservative courts to air in an episode during the week of the March for Life. While hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters are expected to gather in Washington, D.C. for the annual March for Life Friday, liberal social justice warrior Callie Adams Foster bashes the desire of pro-life supporters to overturn Roe v. Wade.
As if the media hadn’t embarrassed themselves enough already in their cheerleading for Adam Schiff and the House impeachment managers, the liberal co-hosts of The View were eager and willing to heap more praise on the Democrats.
Impeachment circus ringleader Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) may find his Hollywood screenwriting aspirations fulfilled after all. Many of tinseltown’s leading players have been so enamored with Schiff’s fictional impeachment arguments in the Senate trial that they are calling him a “rockstar,” an “American Hero,” and the key man for such an “historic moment.”
The publication of a vitriolic book against President Trump has become a rite of passage for a card-holding member of the leftist media elite. Washington Post reporters’ Carol Leonnig and Phillip Rucker are the latest to join in the not-so-exclusive club of anti-Trump, press credentialed authors. The two appeared on Wednesday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, aired early Thursday morning, to discuss their newest book, Very Stable Genius, in the midst of the Impeachment trial.
One could be forgiven for inferring from this morning’s CNN chyron that a conservative group was releasing attack ads against Senator Susan Collins (R-ME); after all, the chyron read: “Conservative Group Releases Ad Targeting GOP Sen. Collins.” But in reality, the “conservative group” in question is a PAC created by frequent CNN guest George Conway, and populated by formerly Republican never-Trumpers like Rick Wilson and Steve Schmidt.
The new talking point for liberals in the media is that Senate Republicans just aren’t paying attention to the brilliance of the House impeachment managers. CNN and MSNBC pushed that on Wednesday and on Thursday, CBS This Morning co-hosts worried about lazy, sleepy GOP senators not following the case for removal.
