By her excitement and choice of words, one could easily think failing-CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell was promoting a pay per view boxing or pro-wrestling match during Wednesday’s newscast. But no, she was hyping the televised impeachment hearings that would start next week. In addition to that, NBC Nightly News chided Republicans were wanted the public to know the identity of the infamous anti-Trump whistleblower who helped to start the investigation.
“Tonight, lights, cameras, testimony. The stage is set for the first televised hearings of the impeachment inquiry,” O’Donnell excitedly proclaimed during the program’s opening tease. “We now know when they will happen and who may be the Democrats’ star witness.”
Once they were finished with the teases, O’Donnell could barely contain her glee as she sprinted to call them “historic,” adding, “televised impeachment hearings begin a week from today, and it promises to be must-see TV.”
“It promises to be must-see TV,” really?! She was acting more like a fight promoter for a UFC match than a journalist. She even touted the combatants for the Democrats.
