The media is pushing impeachment just as hard as the Democrats.
They have been since the election, and it has been obvious to anyone who has been paying attention.
When impeachment dies in the Senate, and it almost assuredly will, it will be a blow to journalists as much as Democrats.
Michael Goodwin writes at the New York Post:
Trump will prevail over ‘scalp-hunting’ journalists: Goodwin
Ever since Watergate and the fall of Richard Nixon, a not-so-secret appeal of journalism has been the possibility that you, too, could bring down a president. Get a press pass and, presto, you’re another Woodward and Bernstein.
Donald Trump just spoiled the fantasy.
If, as expected, the Democrats’ impeachment dies a quick death in the Senate, it’s not just Speaker Nancy Pelosi who will have been thwarted. Presidential scalp-hunting by a biased media will be another Washington game disrupted by Trump.
Backed by a press corps eager to get Trump, Pelosi felt confident to authorize the flimsy effort to remove the president from office. She assumed media bullhorns would push the public into her camp and that would win her Republican votes for a bipartisan takedown.
She certainly got the media support, but the public and the GOP aren’t following. Indeed, the harder that Reps. Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler push and the louder the anti-Trump media scream, the more the public resists impeachment over the Ukraine piffle.
People can see what the media has become.
General Flynn was an Afghanistan War whistleblower against the Pentagon but the media cheers as he awaits his prison sentence
The media doesn't care about speaking truth to actual power, they're just playing gotcha games with Trump
But remember, journalists don't take sides

What did President Trump accomplish this week while Democrats debated impeachment?
—Historic trade deal with China
—EO to combat Anti-Semitism
—Established the Space Force
—Paid family leave for all federal workers
Yet the media still only focused on impeachment

The liberal media should issue groveling apologies to President Trump for their attacks on him after firing Jim Comey. After watching his atrocious interview today on Fox it’s clear he’s an immoral sleazebag without a scintilla of dignity. He’s a disgrace to this country.

The media took an eight year nap under Obama but they want to be taken seriously now.
It’s just sad.
