The Media’s Push for Impeachment

  • Share












By L. Brent Bozell III

The Mueller report is out, and Donald Trump’s summary got it right: “no collusion, no obstruction.” Mueller could also have labeled him the next iteration of St. Teresa, but it still wouldn’t have made a lick of difference. The left wants him impeached — period.

No one on the left is more upset than pretty much everyone in the press. MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski insists Democrats have to do their “patriotic duty to step up for the country.” That’s lipstick-on-a-pig talk. Their obsession may require medical treatment. It’s becoming pathological.

 

NBC's Chuck Todd thinks that if there were no impeachment push, it would be "okaying the idea of foreign adversaries helping out political campaigns." He pressed Rep. Jerrold Nadler saying, "you have all of this case of obstruction presented in the Mueller report, as you've just stated. Some might ask ... 'Why haven't you opened an impeachment inquiry?'"

"PBS NewsHour" analyst Mark Shields wants a "new 9/11 commission," apparently because the election of Donald Trump is on the level of a terrorist attack that killed 3,000 Americans.

What's the moral of the story? If at first your hostile investigations don't wreck the Trump presidency, try, try again.

Reasonable Americans could say that based on the accusations flying all over Washington about possible collusion with the Russians and election fraud, they want the matter investigated and resolved, asked and answered. There was never a shred of it. In fact, the scurrilous accusations came out of the Hillary Clinton campaign. These were not the findings of a pro-Trump investigation. They came from none other than the media's recent hero, their one-time Eliot Ness, sainted Robert Mueller.

Journalists interested in justice, and in truth itself, would now demand an investigation into the Democrats. Journalists interested in journalism would undertake that investigation themselves. But why uncover the facts when fiction is so much more ... effective?

Top Democrats know that this nebulous and now-disproved concept of Russian collusion with Trump isn't an issue when they go to talk to voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. CNN found that for 86 percent of voters, the Mueller report would have absolutely no effect on their vote for president in 2020. And yet, in New York and Washington, it's still the dominant issue, as it has been ever since the election, when Trump ruined all their "conventional wisdom."

Some members of the press corps continue to harrumph about "foreign adversaries helping out political campaigns" as if the Clinton campaign didn't pay ex-British spy Christopher Steele to dig around for dirt (including the so-called "pee tape") from Russian sources. It's "collusion" for Donald Trump Jr. to meet with a Russian for 20 minutes at Trump Tower, but Christopher Steele being paid to meet with Russian contacts for months somehow can't be defined as "collusion" in the same conversation.

Steele? Fusion GPS? FISA court? The network evening newscasts spent 2,200 minutes on Trump collusion, but the counternarrative of a liberal conspiracy against the Trump campaign — inside the government as well as outside — couldn't get a fraction of that airtime.

The network know-it-alls didn't offer all this "patriotic duty" talk about "foreign adversaries" when the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election campaign took bags of cash from Buddhist monks and Indonesian businessmen and Chinese communists. Back then, any congressional investigation into Asian collusion was a waste of taxpayer money and network news time. This only shows what everyone knows: The "objective" media are the servile handmaidens of the Democrats.

Journalists should be embarrassed that their expectations about Mueller turned out to be so wrong. Instead of acknowledging the error in their endless speculation about how the walls were "closing in" on Trump, they just keep trying to push the walls in. Their hatred for him knows no bounds.

  1. I used to be recommended this website via my cousin. I’m no longer positive whether or not this post is written by means of him as nobody else realize such detailed about my problem. You are incredible! Thank you!

  2. The media and the Democrats have become the biggest issue with their hate and destructi I’ve attitudes. The Democrats have become so insane that they no longer talk or act like respectful human beings. They have become compulsive liars and law breakers. They want to force Justice Barr into breaking the law so that they can have a real crime against him.

  3. I THINK THAT ALL THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA BROADCASTER’S OUGHT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR LIES THAT IS IMPLIED TO TRY TO HELP THE DEMOCRATS PUSH THE IMPEACHMENT NARRATIVE OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP. THE STUDENT FROM COVENTRY HIGH SCHOOL HAS A LAWYER WHO IS SUING THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA FOR THEIR BIASED NARRATIVE THEY PUSHED AGAINST THIS STUDENT WHO DID NOTHING WRONG BUT JUST STAND THERE AS THIS SO CALLED NATIVE AMERICAN CAME RIGHT AT HIM AND GOT IN HIS FACE. IT WASN’T THE OTHER WAY AROUND OF THE STUDENT APPROACHING THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN AS THE FAKE NEWS REPORTED REPEATEDLY. NOW I FEEL VERY STRONGLY THAT THE PRESIDENT OUGHT TO GET AN OUTSIDE ATTORNEY AND ALSO FILE A DEFAMATION SUIT AGAINST ALL THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA’S ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HIM. LIKE JOHN BERMAN OPENS HIS EYES REAL WIDE AND RAISES HIS EYEBROWS AS HE COMMENTS “THAT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS AN RUSSIAN AGENT.” WE NEED TO STOP ALL THE ACCUSATIONS UNLESS THERE IS ABSOLUTE PROOF OF THE ALLEGATIONS MADE WITH THE SOURCES THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA USES FOR THESE WILD ACCUSATIONS. IF THIS IS FAIR FOR OUR NEWS MEDIA TO ACT ON JUST RUMOR OR FROM A HATE FOR OUR PRESIDENT, THEN WE AS CITIZENS SHOULD START FIRING ACCUSATIONS ABOUT THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA WE RECEIVE FROM UNKNOWN RELIABLE SOURCES. THEY NEED A BIG TASTE OF THEIR OWN MEDICINE. IF THE PRESIDENT NEEDS OUR HELP TO RAISE FUNDS TO HIRE THE BEST ATTORNEY’S FOR SUCH A SUIT I AM READY TO STAND UP FOR HIM.

  4. Trump played the media like a drum, their ego and ignorance suits them well. They care about themselves being right on a very big wrong, the hell with the country. Grow up and admit you were wrong, let the country heal from your games played.

  5. It’s not the media who are pushing this coup, it’s the people in Washington DC who have the authority to do so. The tragedy is that everyone in Washington DC knows exactly what is happening, and yet, they dignify it with legitimacy and relentless pursuance.

  6. What i don’t realize is actually how you’re not really much more well-liked than you may be right now. You’re so intelligent. You realize thus significantly relating to this subject, made me personally consider it from numerous varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it is one thing to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. Always maintain it up!
