The four nightly broadcast news shows (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS) on Tuesday presented Attorney General Merrick Garland’s House hearing as a brave moment where he proclaimed he would "not be intimidated" by House Republican demands. 

 The emphasis of every segment was a pitiable Garland attacked by the Republican bullies, the news seemed more and more like a teenage drama story, exempt from any attempt at nonpartisan journalism.
