Nets Gush About Vindman Testimony, ‘Chest Full of Service Medals’

As if he was the hero they needed to vanquish their nemesis, the liberal media fell in love with the public impeachment testimony of White House Ukraine adviser Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman. All three of the major broadcast networks kicked off their evening newscasts with gushy reports touting his role in the day-long marathon of impeachment hearings. Surprisingly, NBC Nightly News was the one network to include some of the questions about Vindman’s testimony and phone call narrative.

The segment introduction from failing CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell was arguably the gooiest. “The most damaging testimony during a day of impeachment hearings came from a decorated combat veteran wearing a chest full of service medals and a purple heart,” she gushed.

O’Donnell adding: “Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman told Congress he was alarmed by the President's July phone call with the leader of Ukraine, saying it was improper and inappropriate that Mr. Trump would ask a foreign leader to investigate a political opponent and that it could undermine U.S. national security.”

After O’Donnell teed up CBS chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes to hype the “extraordinary moments” from the hearing, the reporter boasted of how “today's testimony went straight at one of the main White House lines of defense,” that the Trump administration was concerned with corruption.
