Two conservative outlets have complained that their livestreams of the Senate impeachment trial have been taken down--for no reason.
Joe Scarborough has once again assumed his role as a strategic advisor to the Democrats. On Morning Joe, Scarborough warns Democrats that it would be a "sucker's deal" for them to trade testimony by Hunter Biden for that of John Bolton at the impeachment trial.
Liberal billionaire 2020 Democratic candidate and Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg said he’d have to “swallow two or three times” before he would “vote to convict” President Donald Trump. But that may have just been political theater. Bloomberg intends to “shift his television ad message this week to directly call for President Trump’s removal from office, with a new spot that will run in states with Republican senators who face competitive reelection fights this year”
Tuesday evening, Politico published a story revealing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) “mischaracterized,” a text message exchange sent between Rudy Giuliani and his former business associate, Lev Parnas. However, this revelation didn’t make the cut on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN or MSNBC on Tuesday all the way into Wednesday morning.
The impeachment trial of Donald Trump should begin with an indictment of the media. The alleged crime committed by President Trump revolves around his request that the president of Ukraine investigate the shady business dealings of Hunter Biden with a corrupt Ukrainian oil and gas company. That investigation might have been unnecessary had the news media chosen to do what they're supposed to be doing: investigative journalism.
With fruitless attempts by Senate Democrats to prematurely vote on witnesses and documents for the impeachment trial stretching deep into Tuesday night, something they and the liberal media decried when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wanted to do it for opening arguments, CNN’s heavily liberal panel praised the Democratic impeachment managers for doing what they were doing.
Shortly after they slimed President Trump’s legal team with accusations they weren’t behaving like lawyers, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell aired portions of a sit-down interview she did with four of the Democratic impeachment managers from the House. The Tuesday segment was little more than an opportunity to give Democrats extra time to make their case against the President, as O’Donnell lobbed softball after softball their way.
During Tuesday night’s dinner break in the impeachment trial, CNN put forward a case that January 21, 2020 will be day of infamy for President Trump. AC360 and Erin Burnett OutFront offered guest after guest that not only agreed with one another, but plunged further into political analysis divorced from reality. CNN political analyst and resident drama king Carl Bernstein stated on AC360 at the end of the break that Tuesday “was devastating for the President of the United States both short term and long term.”
Since MSNBC and CNN are both liberal “news” outlets, it certainly comes as no shock when they quote information from each other and consider those assertions to be 100 percent accurate without verifying any of them. That was the case on Tuesday, when the co-hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe cable TV program quoted results from a survey conducted by CNN that claimed more than half of the people across the country consider President Donald Trump to be a liar -- just hours before the Senate impeachment trial got underway.
Day one of the Senate’s impeachment trial of President Trump was marked by a debate between the Democratic managers and the President’s legal team over the proposed rules for the proceedings. But instead of just reporting on the argument Trump’s legal team was making, CBS correspondent Chip Reid decided to insert his own editorial hot take against the lawyers.
Surprise! MSNBC thinks the Democrats are doing great during day one of the impeachment hearings. During the 6:30 PM break after hours of testimony, host Lawrence O’Donnell praised, “What we've seen so far is evidence versus rhetoric. The House managers showed up with evidence they have incorporated evidence into every bit of their argument to obtain further evidence. It seems like the Trump defense team showed up thinking this was just a procedural day.”
Ivanka Trump knows how to handle obnoxious CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.The eldest daughter of President Donald Trump and wife to Trump senior advisor Jared Kushner showed how to put the pushy journalist in his place. Like any self-respecting Trump, Ivanka completely ignored him.
Having all received their marching orders from Dear Leader Jeffrey Zucker, CNN’s panel of so-called analysts and journalists sang the praises of pal and lead House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) late Tuesday afternoon as an “effective orator” who produced “a pretty compelling story” with “facts” that, in their minds, put the White House to shame.
During CBS’s special coverage of the Senate impeachment trial on Tuesday, Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell was thrilled by Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff’s opening presentation that featured on-screen graphics and video clips. She gushed over the political show to her panel of pundits.
Chuck Todd and his NBC News Political Unit sounds like angry coaches in NBC's "Meet the Press: First Read" digital newsletter on Tuesday. The headline reads "Why aren't Democrats making life miserable for vulnerable Republicans on impeachment?" Todd wants more punch in the Democrat offense.
