Former Vice President Joe Biden got a lot of positive coverage from the liberal media on Wednesday after he called for President Trump’s impeachment while campaigning against him in New Hampshire. The major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) hoisted up Biden’s demands with a combined 4 minutes and 20 seconds of largely enthusiastic coverage.
“There is breaking news on the impeachment inquiry at home. Democratic candidate Joe Biden is saying in no uncertain terms tonight that President Trump should be impeached,” NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt announced at the top of their 45 seconds.
NBC chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson almost parroted Holt’s praise for Biden’s comments. “For the first time, Joe Biden issuing a full-throated no caveated call for President Trump's impeachment,” she touted. “It's the strongest statement yet from the Democratic candidate as President Trump, late tonight, fires back.”
Also boasting how it was “the first time” Biden had called for Trump’s impeachment, ABC’s World News Tonight was also on board. “As a defiant President Trump refuses to cooperate with the House impeachment inquiry and Speaker Pelosi declares the President is not above the law, a fiery Joe Biden now says it is time for the President to be impeached,” chief White House correspondent Jon Karl began.
