COLUMNIST: Trump Will Beat The Impeachment Crazy Media

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.

The media took an eight year nap under Obama but they want to be taken seriously now.

It’s just sad.
