Opposed to Transparency: Nets Smear ‘Rogue Republican’ Sit-In as ‘Sideshow’


***To read the full blog, please check out the complete post on NewsBusters***

In an attempt to force House Democrats to hold public hearings for their impeachment investigation, Republican members staged a sit-in in the hearing room and delayed the process for five hours. But the “journalists” in the liberal media were appalled by the idea of transparency for Democrats. ABC, CBS, and NBC attacked and smeared the GOP lawmakers during their Wednesday evening newscasts.

CBS Evening News was the most furious. Critically failing anchor Norah O’Donnell kicked off the opening tease in a panic, declaring “chaos at the Capitol! Rogue Republicans crash the impeachment inquiry delaying a top defense official's testimony. Democrats call in the sergeant at arms to break up the protest.”

After the teases, O’Donnell began by informing viewers their first segment would be about the “dramatic sideshow” put on Republicans. “As if on cue, following President Trump's orders yesterday for Republicans to get tougher on impeachment, a group of Republicans barged into a closed-door hearing today,” she chided.

CBS congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes tried to argue that Republicans held closed-door hearings while they were investigating Benghazi, but GOP Rep. Bradley Byrne (AL) schooled her.
