Calling for transparency in the impeachment investigation of President Trump, a number of House Republicans stormed the conference room being used for the hearing and staged an old-fashion sit-in. Transparency was apparently something only demanded of Republicans because the liberal media spent Wednesday decrying the GOP tactic. CNN host Anderson Cooper was so peeved by the move that he began that night’s AC360 by teaming up with a Democrat in the room to rip the Republican effort.
In an attempt to force House Democrats to hold public hearings for their impeachment investigation, Republican members staged a sit-in in the hearing room and delayed the process for five hours. But the “journalists” in the liberal media were appalled by the idea of transparency for Democrats. ABC, CBS, and NBC attacked and smeared the GOP lawmakers during their Wednesday evening newscasts.

Showing once again that the journalists and media analysts on MSNBC can live in a different world, the network on Tuesday hosted a conversation about the “moderate,” “middle-of-the-road” candidates in the 2020 Democratic field. After Chris Jansing fretted about whether the overall Democratic field could defeat Donald Trump, guest Michael Starr Hopkins offered this opinion: “Pete Buttigieg is someone who is a moderate but has little experience when it comes to actually governing.”
On Monday's Morning Joe, they devoted a segment to a new documentary on the PBS show Frontline attacking the Trump administration over the zero-tolerance policy that resulted in illegal immigrant children being separated from their families until the practice was ended in June 2018.

Kudos to the Huffington Post for trying to find some common ground between the LGBTQ community and Christians. And by finding common ground, we mean adopting a scorched earth/take-no-prisoners tactic in its war against those with different points of view.
The always hyperbolic presidential historian Jon Meacham made an appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball Tuesday, where he weighed in on President Trump’s description of his treatment throughout the impeachment inquiry as a “lynching.” After trashing President Trump as a racist, Meacham proceeded to trash the entire country as racist dating all the way back to its founding. In addition, Meacham compared the testimony of diplomat William Taylor that took place earlier in the day to the testimony of Richard Nixon’s White House Counsel John Dean during the Watergate hearings.

It’s been a long time since the executives at CBS News have had something to cheer about in the ratings, and that trend continues despite the replacement of the previous Evening News anchor Jeff Glor with female host Norah O’Donnell.

All three network morning shows Wednesday spent reports blasting President Trump for comparing the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to a “lynching.” ABC, NBC and CBS seized on the racially-charged language, characterizing it as yet another example of Trump’s racial insensitivity. However, Joe Biden’s own history using the word to describe the Clinton impeachment, was given a pass by the networks, who couldn’t find the same outrage for the Democrat candidate.
As impeachment passions continue to heat up in Washington, MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle thought it would be a good idea to bring some historical perspective to the conversation on her Tuesday show. Unfortunately for viewers however, that perspective was brought by historian Jon Meacham who bungled some key points on his way to making a more partisan, than objective historical analysis.
