Question for Telemundo News: Where was correspondent Cristina Londoño during the Democrats’ impeachment proceedings last December? Given her apparent state of shock about the Senate impeachment procedures, it seems she went off to Lala Land during the House impeachment of President Donald Trump.
As the impeachment trial got underway on Tuesday, CNN legal analyst Elie Honig joined CNN Newsroom co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto to try and indict"controversial" members of President Trump's defense team. Naturally, the segment was full of hypocrisy, bungled facts, and faulty analogies. Honig claimed Ken Starr would become "a walking, talking exhibit' for the House Democrat impeachment managers.
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN's Gloria Borger filed a pre-recorded report in which she misleadingly portrayed liberal California Democratic Congressman and impeachment manager Adam Schiff as a "moderate" as she recounted his political career. Borger did not clarify that his voting record has never been moderate, and, after his already Democratic district became even more strongly liberal in 2013, Schiff further distanced himself from moderates by resigning from the Blue Dog Coalition.
While during the Clinton impeachment trial, the media was adamant that no additional witnesses were needed, they have completely flipped on that position, now that a Republican president is being impeached. Monday, as the Senate trial to impeach President Trump began, the hosts of The View took that same tactic, bashing Republicans for not doing what Democrats want, or as they put it, “the will of the people.” Co-host Joy Behar even speculated that Republicans supporting Trump and his own impeachment lawyers were hiding something “gross” from the public.
MSNBC on Tuesday kicked off impeachment with a movie trailer-style hype video and a Chris Matthews rant about dumb voters. Matthews attempted to compliment the legal strategy of Alan Dershowitz, who is arguing that no crime should equal no conviction. The Hardball host bashed the dummies he fears will find the strategy effective. Matthews spewed, “To the non-attentive voter — I think Trump always loves the low information guy, the Dancing with the Stars who cares more about Harry and Meghan or about Brad and Jennifer."
On Tuesday, as the political PR battle ahead of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump began, ABC’s Good Morning America amplified complaints from Democrats that the process was “a cover-up and national disgrace” because of the rules outlined by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Liberal billionaire 2020 Democratic candidate and owner of Bloomberg News Michael Bloomberg weighed in on the liberal media-driven impeachment drama. Bloomberg told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on NBC's Today Show on Jan. 20 that he was asked if he were Senator how would he vote. He responded, “I’d have to swallow two or three times, but I would say I would vote to impeach, vote to convict because there's just so much evidence that he acted inappropriately” [emphasis added].
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, conservative contributor Rick Santorum was outnumbered on a panel by liberals 5-1 as the group discussed the planned rules for President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate. CNN analysts used words like "farce," "joke," and "atrocity" to complain about the rules.
Though the impeachment trial won’t be deciding anything for a while still, lefty Twitter has hinted at the ultimate result of the sham no matter what “verdict” materializes, and that is either Trump’s removed from office or it’s proof that there are even more coverups going on.
Hours before the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump began on Tuesday, NBC’s Today show seized on “outraged” Democrats preemptively trashing the proceeding as a “national disgrace” and blasting the rules proposed by Republicans. The broadcast dutifully parroted those talking points despite the slipshod manner in which liberal lawmakers conducted impeachment in the House.
In appearances on both MSNBC's Morning Joe and CNN's New Day today, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer repeatedly accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of going along with an alleged "coverup" by President Trump of the impeachment trial, "hook, line, and sinker."
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) said Jan. 16 that President Donald Trump broke the law when he withheld aid from Ukraine. The union for that “independent, nonpartisan” agency naturally supports Democrats. Just don’t expect the media to tell you about it.
As our nation celebrated and honored the great Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, one show on television was furthering racial divisions by portraying white police officers as racist bullies who will shoot an innocent little boy just because he’s black, and claiming that racist white business owners are becoming “the new normal.” This, after leaving us with an episode that mocked Christianity before taking their winter break.
After everything we’ve seen from The Young Pope, the only way HBO’s follow-up The New Pope would stand out is if it tried to be reverent. Unfortunately, even after two episodes, it’s clear that we’re just going back to the same pattern of being obscene and insulting the Church. The “Second Episode” proves that with more nudity and a jab on how the Church “loves.”
All Rise is well known for being politically charged, and this latest episode is no different. In the episode that aired Monday, the stars of the show defend gang members and demonize law enforcement. An ex-gang member is charged with murder and in this trial the prosecution uses a bug in the meeting room to find out what other gang members were involved in the murder, putting the defendant's life at risk.
