Corporate media (yes Rachel and Lawrence) chastised the House on the order of questioning.

Why? Because their corporate bosses made a decision to only show one half of the hearing. They wanted the House Counsel to question first. Why did they not show the ENTIRE hearing?

They had to spend the evening retracting the half baked reporting the mouths spewed in the afternoon. Half baked, incomplete reporting.

Iím disgusted with corporate media. Cable cut away from the hearing to unleash the talking heads long before the hearing ended. This is akin of taking the cookies out of the oven at 5 minutes instead of 14.

1. The Democrats should have let their Counsel

ask all the questions. As it was, with a few notable exceptions, all the Dems did was make little speeches. If they had allowed Counsel to conduct the hearing, Lewandowski would have been a puddle on the hearing room floor. I hope they learned something from this.

3. This! The questioning had no continuity . If not counsel, Nadler should pick 2 or 3 of their

most effective questioners with a law background, like Berke , and let them handle it. It was a mess. Our Democracy is at stake and Dems need to dispense with the grandstanding speeches. And Lewandowski should have been charged with contempt.

2. They didn't "chastise".

They just made suggestions that having the Counsel go first would have been a better plan.

5. Disagree wholeheartedly that their suggestion

would benefit the process vs the time corporate media had to devote to coverage. Corporate media broke away from coverage because their supreme
knowledge GUESSED they knew how the hearing would land.

4. I respect the House leadership knows what they are

doing. The first half exposed Lewandowski as an bully and wrongly as empowered. He approached contempt of congress. The House Counsel exposed his lies.
