Jesse Watters: Impeachment Is A 'Self- Perpetuating' News Cycle

If a member of the elitist media were to venture outside of their liberal bubble and talk to an average voter on the street about impeachment, the results would prove shocking to them. The fact of the matter is the majority of the country is against impeaching President Trump. Unsurprisingly, this has not deterred the press from shoving the impeachment motif down the throats of millions of Americans for months on end, as Fox News host Jesse Watters remarked on The Five Monday night.

The unrelenting coverage of the push for impeachment makes sense when one considers the media began the hysteria in the first place. Watters explained the circular firing squad the press has created for themselves:

The whole news cycle is driven by impeachment through the press. The press wants to book Democrats who want to impeach the President. They invite them on and they say impeach and then they do a segment on it. Then the media runs a poll on impeachment and do a segment on the poll. Then the media asks Donald Trump about impeachment. He says it, then they do a segment. They ask the Democrats running for President about impeachment, then they do a segment. It's a self-perpetuating news cycle about impeachment.


Watters then predicted the media miscalculation of the American people’s interests would ultimately lead to their demise: "…it’s in a bubble and the bubble's constantly shrinking cause CNN and MSNBC's ratings are going down. And the rest of the country is like I am going to get a beer out on the porch, I don't care anymore.”

If they truly cared about gaining viewership rather than appeasing their liberal audience, media networks would have a gauge on the stories the country cares about and realize impeachment is not one of them.
