The Democratic Party and media crusade to impeach President Trump didn’t appear to be going well Sunday, as New Jersey Democratic Congressman Jeff Van Drew was set to vote against the Articles of Impeachment and become a Republican in the process. ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today spent some of their mornings trying to convince the public it was no big deal. Yet, part of the intent of the hearings was to peel Republicans away from Trump, which would’ve been celebrated.
On Wednesday, NBC became obsessed with the idea that “the cloud of impeachment is shadowing the President at the NATO summit,” so much so that the network repeatedly hyped seemingly innocuous comments from world leaders about President Trump running late to a meeting, citing it as evidence of “trash talk” and attempts to “mock” the U.S. leader.
The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) dedicated almost three and a half minutes (3:28) of their Thanksgiving eve newscasts to hyperventilating about whether or not high winds would keep the balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade grounded. Meanwhile, the economic growth numbers from the summer were out and showed more positive news. NBC Nightly News was the only newscast to mention the growth, but they quickly dismissed it in favor of fretting over the trade war with China.
On Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued the liberal media’s attempt to force-feed the American people every twist and turn of the left’s attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office. Following up on their Monday night celebrations that a federal judge ordered former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress, the ABC and NBC newscasts boasted about this new “blow” and “scathing judgement.”
Despite the fact, polls showed that as impeachment dragged on more and more people were souring on it, ABC, CBS, and NBC were excited for the possibility of even more House hearings. Their Monday excitement was spurred on by the ruling of a federal court judge, who said former White House Counsel Don McGahn had to testify before Congress. The ruling went against what the White House was hoping for and the broadcast networks were absolutely giddy thinking about this could affect impeachment.
MSNBC has tabbed a Bernie booster (Rachel Maddow) and Joe Biden fan (Andrea Mitchell) to be the lead moderators for Wednesday’s Democratic debate, so it’s a good bet the questions will be skewed from the left. It won't be the first time: In June, MSNBC hosted a two-night debate event where 69 percent of the questions to the very liberal field of candidates were from the left.
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.”
On Friday, journalists on NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America were giddy as they touted nasty excerpts from the new book, A Warning, an anti-Trump screed from a supposed anonymous administration official. Despite not knowing the person’s identity or being able to verify a single claim in the book, reporters rushed to label it “explosive” and a “bombshell.”
By her excitement and choice of words, one could easily think failing-CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell was promoting a pay per view boxing or pro-wrestling match during Wednesday’s newscast. But no, she was hyping the televised impeachment hearings that would start next week. In addition to that, NBC Nightly News chided Republicans were wanted the public to know the identity of the infamous anti-Trump whistleblower who helped to start the investigation.
The same liberal media that were appalled by chants of “lock her up” against Hillary Clinton and treated any protest of President Obama like a Klan rally, applauded crowds of bitter liberals chanting “lock him up” during President Trump’s recent public appearances. During both their morning and evening newscasts on Monday, CBS News and NBC News touted crowds that shared their sentiment.
The liberal media were so enamored with President Obama when he gave the order that ultimately resulted in the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden; to the point of almost treating it as though he was the one to pull the actual trigger. But with news breaking late Saturday night that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi met the same fate, the Sunday morning newscasts were awash with anti-Trump journalists whining about President Trump using it a victory for his Middle East policies.
On Friday, all three network morning shows rushed to dismiss the newly revealed criminal investigation into the origins of the Russia probe as nothing more than “political revenge” against President Trump’s “enemies.” Hosts and correspondents dutifully stuck to Democratic Party talking points trashing the inquiry, coming just shy of labeling it a “witch hunt.”
