Brian Stelter is not happy that the networks focused on what’s now thought to be an anti-Semitic terror attack in Jersey City, NJ instead of the possible impeachment of President Trump:
On Tuesday, when articles of impeachment against a sitting president were presented for only the fourth time in history, the ABC, NBC and CBS nightly newscasts all led with the Jersey City shootout before covering impeachment. (corrected tweet)

And here’s Soledad O’Brien reminding Stelter that his own colleague, Chris Cillizza, called the latest hearings “unwatchable” and then she told him, as CNN’s media reporter, to “explore that” instead:
Your own colleague declared the last round of hearings “unwatchable” and told us “almost no one watching understood or cared about” them. Since you’re the MEDIA reporter and all, maybe you can explore that. https://t.co/ww50P6QkEB

ICYMI, here’s what she was referring to:
The whole thing — even for someone like me who gets paid to watch this stuff — was, well, unwatchable.
A bunch of adults yelling at one another over matters that almost no one watching understood or cares about. https://t.co/i2Fn83a8cx
