Well, the day the liberal media had been hoping for finally arrived on Tuesday as House Democrats released their Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. They were welcomed with anticipation by the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC). And despite the fact, the Articles didn’t include many of the charges Democrats said there would be, the media did their job and treated them like serious documents.
As Democrats announced two articles of impeachment against President Trump this morning, ABC News broke in with a special report largely focused on defending the party’s partisan push to remove Trump from office. Each ABC journalist then went on to parrot Democrat talking points, arguing they were upholding the Constitution, not acting in their own political interests.
The first thing the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) did when they began their Wednesday evening newscasts, was lionize the so-called “constitutional scholars” handpicked by the Democrats to trumpet impeachment as even and unbiased professionals. In reality, they were far from it, with most giving money to Democratic campaigns and palling around in radical liberal circles.
OnOne of the biggest headlines to come of the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing on Wednesday was Democrat witness and Stanford University Law professor Pamela Karlan lashing at President Trump’s 13-year old son Barron. It was a vile attack that went completely unmentioned by the impeachment seekers on CBS Evening News. Meanwhile, ABC’s World News Tonight called the attack witty and NBC Nightly News edited out the backhanded comment out of Karlan’s so-called “apology.”
Minutes before Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry hearing began, ABC journalists were already spinning what Republicans would say as nonsense. ABC’s Senior Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce and Senior White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega dismissed Republicans as stooges for President Trump who would stop at nothing to disrupt the hearing with their “theatrics."
Despite the fact that House Republicans on the Intelligence Committee released their impeachment findings a full day ahead of Democrats, the liberal broadcast networks granted their team 10 times the coverage in just one evening. ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News granted the GOP report a measly 54 seconds of combined airtime. NBC actually ignored the GOP report during their Tuesday newscast.
In a recent interview with TIME magazine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he never approached conversations with President Trump “from the position of a quid pro quo.” It was a declaration that poked a major hole in the left’s impeachment narrative, but the liberal broadcast networks would have none of it during their Monday evening newscasts. Two of them downplayed the comments and one just flat out refused to report them.
The media are so desperate to get President Trump ousted disgracefully from office, that they are already predicting his fate in the history books. On ABC’s Good Morning America Monday, Terry Moran and George Stephanopoulos promoted a new ABC poll which showed 70% of the public believed the Ukraine phone call was “wrong” but only a slight majority supported impeachment. Still, the network spun the numbers as good news for Democrats. Moran even claimed that Trump’s denials over quid pro quo would become as infamous as Bill Clinton’s denials about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
After ABC on Wednesday boasted Democrats were “serious” and U.S. Ambassador Bill Taylor was like Walter Cronkite, the post-hearing coverage led a few panelists to painstakingly concede that the hearing would not change anyone’s minds about impeachment. On the other hand, there was a hilarious back-and-forth with former Clinton official/chief anchor George Stephanopoulos and senior national correspondent Terry Moran to bemoan how more haven’t crossed over to call for Trump’s removal because they’re too blinded by Trump’s “version of American populism.”
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.”
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.
To show their frustration with the shady way House Democrats were conducting their partisan impeachment crusade, Senator Lindsey Graham (SC) led 41 other Republican Senators in writing a resolution demanding transparency and fairness. But ABC and NBC ignored and minimized their efforts while claiming congressional Republicans were actually angry with President Trump.
