The new talking point for liberals in the media is that Senate Republicans just aren’t paying attention to the brilliance of the House impeachment managers. CNN and MSNBC pushed that on Wednesday and on Thursday, CBS This Morning co-hosts worried about lazy, sleepy GOP senators not following the case for removal.
If there’s one thing CBS This Morning journalists have been worried about during the 2020 Democratic primaries, it’s whether the various candidates are liberal enough. That trend continued on Friday as co-host Tony Dokoupil pressed Amy Klobuchar on whether she’s “progressive” enough for today’s Democratic voters. He also demanded the senator endorse a wealth tax. After noting that socialist Bernie Sanders is far to the left, Dokoupil lectured, “I was looking at a report just this morning that said that the average family, the typical family is poorer today than they were back in 2000. Life expectancy in this country is falling.” He worried:
CBS journalists want the Senators in the coming impeachment trial to be impartial and unbiased. Except when they don’t care about that. On Wednesday, This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil hammered Mitch McConnell for having already made a decision against impeachment. Talking to CBS News legal analyst Kim Wehle, he demanded, “The Senate rules for impeachment say, ‘I do solemnly swear,’ this is the oath that each senator takes.”
Tuesday’s CBS This Morning featured political correspondent Ed O’Keefe’s latest installment of his “3 Meals in...” series which took him to southern California for meals with a wide spectrum of voters in Bakersfield, Bell, and Newport Beach. At the end of an enjoyable and informative segment, O’Keefe conceded to the surprise of the CTM crew that impeachment only come up “unless you ask,” leading co-host Anthony Mason to suggest that, for Democrats, impeachment is “not a winning issue, it doesn’t look like.” Imagine that!
Appearing on Friday’s CBS This Morning, legal analyst and constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley completely shattered the hopes of Democrats and the liberal media that President Trump would be successfully impeached and removed from office. He trashed the proceedings for presenting “the thinnest evidentiary record” and declared the effort was “designed to fail.”
On Thursday, the broadcast networks kept up their crusade to push Facebook into censoring political speech by celebrating Twitter’s move to ban all political ads from its social media platform. The reporters on NBC, ABC, and CBS weren’t alone in their joy, touting how “Democrats largely praised” the move as well.
On Wednesday, both NBC’s 3rd Hour Today show and CBS This Morning engaged in climate change hysteria as they touted dire predictions that huge portions of land around the world would be underwater by 2050 and displace hundreds of millions of people. The network hosts all blindly accepted the warnings as true without pointing out that such wild claims have been made for decades without coming to fruition.
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.
During a panel discussion about the 2020 campaign on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, hosts and political analysts agreed that Hunter Biden’s interview with ABC News wasn’t doing his father’s presidential candidacy any favors and might even give President Trump more ammunition against Joe Biden.
While failing CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell suggested the NBA was in a “free speech dispute with China,” the facts of the matter showed the league was perfectly fine with cracking down on free speech targeting the murderous communist state. In back to back nights, the NBA ejected peaceful advocates for democracy and freedom in Hong Kong from games here in the U.S. Despite the NBA doing the bidding of the communists, the liberal broadcast networks blacked it out from their flagship morning and evening newscasts on Wednesday and Thursday.
The hosts of CBS's This Morning gushed over Tina Tchen on Monday without even the slightest mention of what she is best known for. It was the elephant in the room that causes one to wonder if Tchen's appearance on This Morning was contingent on the hosts not mentioning the Jussie Smollett case.
Who better than former Obama/Biden official Susan Rice to talk about Joe Biden’s dealings with Ukraine and the identify of an anonymous whistleblower? (Rice in 2017 came under fire for requesting identities of dozens of people connected to Donald Trump.) Apparently, that’s exactly who the journalists at CBS This Morning wanted for an interview.
