Nets Tout ‘Damning’, ‘Bombshell’… Closed-Door Testimony Against Trump


***To read the full blog, please check out the complete post on NewsBusters***

The broadcast networks once again showed that they relied heavily on Democratic leaks and talking points to build out their impeachment coverage. During their Tuesday evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC touted the testimony of National Security Council staffer Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman as a “bombshell” and “damning” for President Trump. But the testimony was delivered behind-closed-doors to a Democratic-led investigation committee.

The fact that these liberal media outlets were able to categorize the hearing in no uncertain terms means they were getting the talking points fed to them.

But transparency didn’t matter so long as they could tell their viewers about the “bombshell impeachment testimony,” as anchor Norah O’Donnell did during the opening tease for CBS Evening News. “We're going to begin with that damning impeachment testimony today from a key witness.

O’Donnell didn’t try to hide the fact they were getting their information from Democrats. “One Democrat is calling today's testimony ‘The nail in the coffin,’” she went on to boast.
