Within the newest of the NewsBusters Podcast, government editor Tim Graham tackles the second doomed impeachment try towards Donald Trump. The Democrats and the media had been outraged that the Republicans did not be part of them en masse in voting to convict Trump. They solely secured seven as a substitute of the required 17.
However the spin was livid. “I feel it was a dramatic success in historic phrases,” claimed impeachment supervisor Jamin Raskin (D-Maryland) on Meet the Press. “It was by far essentially the most bipartisan majority that is ever assembled within the Senate to convict a president, which has historically been a type of partisan factor in American historical past.” However impeachments are very uncommon — simply 4 in American historical past, two within the final twelve months.
Night-news specialist Nick Fondacaro joins the podcast to debate the most recent troubling twists and turns towards Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and the way the networks are attempting to acknowledge (however solely barely) the rising scandal over his mismanagement (after which his misinformation) on coronavirus in New York.
