How the media will treat impeachment

Despite what the talking heads are telling us, Wednesday’s Mueller hearings had a powerful impact. And here’s just one:

How many moments like this are happening all over America this week?

Media critic Eric Boehlert knows that the media isn’t up to the job, writing:

What has the media learned from their disastrous coverage of the 2016 election? Not much, unfortunately.

How many headlines or major coverage are we seeing this morning on this — which is kind of a big deal?

Or this, which we should all be screaming about? This is a flashing red light:

If you watched the hearing, you heard the insinuations that Mueller’s team was packed with Democratic partisans — but you didn’t hear many reporters talking about this:

Instead, they’re talking about Mueller’s inability to dominate the screen with his acting abilities!

Don’t be discouraged. They’re wrong.

  1. In 2016 the professional pundits, opinion makers, pollsters and the leadership of the Democratic party were all dead wrong.
    They all agreed that with a 37% approval rating Trump couldn’t possibly win the presidency.

    They are all dead wrong again about 2020.

    The ‘professionals’ are telling us that the country needs Joe Biden to replace Trump.

    Shortly after Biden entered the race he met in NY City with a group of high-rollers who he hoped would give him a pile of money.
    Biden told them that if he were elected president “nothing much will change.”
    Is Biden the guy that we need to elect after throwing Trump out of office on his ass?

    These same ‘professionals’ are telling us that “now is not the time to impeach Trump because……………………” (insert any number of lame and ridiculous reasons here).

    Professional pundits, opinion makers and politicians are the creatures of wealthy oligarchs and plutocrats. And Joe’s their guy.

    What they opine about benefits them.
    It does not benefit the people.

    Impeach Trump now.

  2. If this causes them to drag it out longer, then good. The Democrats had an impeachment strategy meeting yesterday, so perhaps some strategy may be employed.
    Malcolm Nance says that we should drag it out to the end of the lame duck as payback to McConnell for Merrick Garland, but I feel like dragging just past the election would be fine.
    Impeachment hearings on live TV just after the conventions would be perfect.
    If the Republican poltroons in the senate have reduced impeachment to a campaign tool, then we should use it as such. Too many lives are hanging in the balance here to screw this up, and Nance is correct that we need a Merrick Garland level political strategy to overcome the next-level cheating that they will be engaging in next year.
