Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Julie Millican, Vice President of Media Matters for America.
As the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump continues this week there has been wall-to-wall media coverage of the historical event given that it is only the third time in the nation’s entire history that US Senators are being asked to consider removing a President from office. But one media outlet stands out in its coverage and that is, of course, the President’s favorite: Fox News.
Fox News, which has a symbiotic relationship with the current White House, has not only mocked the case for impeachment as harshly as possible and claimed the President’s innocence, but has also seen its own talking points reflected back by the President’ legal defense team.
