‘Twas the night before the impeachment hearings, when all through the newsrooms, all the creatures were stirring, even the mice; The guests were properly made up and full of notebooks with care, in hopes that Adam Schiff would soon be there. Yes, it was quite the feeling of gleeful anticipation on Tuesday’s Hardball on the eve of Wednesday morning’s first House impeachment hearings as host Chris Matthews and liberal mouthpieces in the press provided pep talks while framing the matter in such stark terms.
Throughout the day on Tuesday, MSNBC repeatedly touted that the first hour of Wednesday’s public impeachment hearing “will be entirely Adam Schiff” and designed to sell the case against President Trump early “before Republicans can speak.”
On Monday, all three network morning shows made sure to closely follow Democratic Party talking points as reporters dismissed Republican requests for Hunter Biden to testify during upcoming public impeachment hearings. Despite Joe Biden’s son being the subject of President Trump’s controversial phone call with the president of Ukraine, journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS accepted Democratic claims that “there’s no reason to question Hunter Biden.”
Following Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd grilling Republican Senator Rand Paul and tossing softballs to Democratic Congressman Jim Himes on Sunday, regarding impeachment, the political panel admitted that House Democrats had an uphill battle in upcoming public hearings. The worried journalists urged liberal lawmakers to “dramatize” those hearings as much as possible and hoped some of the witnesses would cry or become “emotional.”
Amidst the amusing shout-outs to Hardball host Chris Matthews on the 20th anniversary of the show being on MSNBC, Thursday’s show provided a potpourri of nonsense in the form of two takes. One take pertained to fears that the public impeachment hearings won’t go as well as the left hopes and then the other comparedformer Attorney General Jeff Sessions to the ugly, racist George Wallace.
Journalists on Thursday’s network morning shows could barely contain their excitement over House Democrats announcing public impeachment hearings starting next week. Hosts and correspondents salivated over the political “drama” that would ensue when liberal lawmakers presented testimony against President Trump “in the most compelling way.”
Rather than subject herself to an actual news interview, on Thursday, shortly after the vote in Congress to formally endorse an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went directly to liberal Late Show host Stephen Colbert to celebrate the radically partisan move. She was predictably treated to a hero’s welcome and even thanked Colbert for his supposed “patriotism.”
In what looked more like a dystopian episode of Sesame Street than serious news coverage, during the 1:00 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, MSNBC hyped Democrats following the “ABCs of impeachment” to go after President Trump. Liberal talking points were followed to letter, literally, as the segment detailed all of Trump’s alleged impeachable offenses.
Twitter is reportedly engaging in a cover-up of a former Democratic congresswoman’s scandal that caused her to resign. The Daily Mail took a story that Red State’s Jennifer Van Laar first broke about Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) and ran it with a link in the story that led to graphic images of the politician with one of her staffers.
Do you enjoy internet memes featuring everything from superheroes to Spongebob? The House of Representatives voted to approve a new measure that could eradicate internet jokes which use copyrighted characters forever by threatening users with up to $30,000 fines.
On Monday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and her liberal journalist guests lamented the resignation of Democratic Party “rising star” and California Congresswoman Katie Hill amid a bizarre sex scandal. The discussion portrayed the liberal lawmaker as the victim of a “double standard” and even a “crime.”
The last couple of days have displayed the latest example of the liberal media having a freakout over President Donald Trump doing something that has also been done by Democrats in the past as the networks responded negatively to the President likening Democratic efforts to impeach him to a "lynching." After news came out that more than a half dozen prominent Democrats made similar comments as they defended President Bill Clinton from impeachment in 1998, the networks tried to downplay Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's own history while ignoring the other Democrats.
