Can there be much doubt that the media's "why aren't you impeaching NOW" drumbeat has little to do [View all]

with any oncern about protecting democracy and almost everything to do with their suredness that a process called "impeachment" - even if it's not much different than any other oversight proceeding - would be a ratings boon for them?

They're virtually salivating for the spectacle.

And why not? What a show! They could have "impeachment teams" calling balls and strikes, and telling us who won the day. And they probably already have the snappy theme music composed, recorded and cued up and the vivid "CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS: IMPEACHMENT 2019" logos and chyrons ready to go.

They're ready to get this show on the road and don't care if it's not ready for prime time. In fact, all the better if it's not. After all, the only thing more fun than "IMPEACHMENT 2019" coverage would be "IMPEACHMENT 2019: WHAT WENT WRONG, DEMOCRATS?"
