NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Democrats Slipping Despite Media Hyping Jan. 6 Hearings

June 20th, 2022 10:32 PM

New polls show few people are "very closely" watching the live coverage of January 6 Committee hearings -- nine percent said "very closely" -- and NBC reporters found Republicans are doubling down in opposition to this get-Trump effort.

Despite the NBC report, Chuck Todd was chock-full of 1/6 talk on Sunday's Meet the Press -- 26.5 minutes, including a softball interview with ultraliberal Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) Todd wanted to know if it should be "easy" for Biden's Attorney General Merric Garland to just indict Trump and get on with it.

The sideshow of seven people affiliated with Stephen Colbert's Late Show on CBS getting arrested for unlawful entry of a House office building was something networks didn't want to discuss. CBS gave it about a minute, ABC did less than 25 seconds, and Chuck Todd's NBC couldn't be bothered.
