News Media Uniformity: ABC and CBS Evening Newscasts Both Hype ‘Impeachable Offenses?’


Displaying identical news judgments, the ABC and CBS evening newscasts on Sunday night offered a matching way to frame the day’s news as both used the very same phrasing for their on-screen teases, with corresponding narration from the anchors: “Impeachable Offenses?” 

Anchor Tom Llamas on ABC’s World News Tonight: “Impeachable offenses? Top Democrats taking aim at President Trump. Prosecutors implicating him in criminal acts linked to the campaign. And a key Republican senator with a warning for the president.”

Anchor Elaine Quijano on the CBS Weekend News: “The incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says federal prosecutors have outlined impeachable offenses against President Trump.”

U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, (D-NY): “They were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office.”
