The New York Times admitted on Tuesday that the Democrats’ upcoming January 6 Committee hearings are an attempt to “recast” the party’s failing midterm election message against Republicans in order to help Democrats “to stay in power.”
“It is an uphill battle at a time when polls show that voters’ attention is focused elsewhere, including on inflation, rising coronavirus cases and record-high gas prices,” the Times wrote. “But Democrats argue the hearings will give them a platform for making a broader case about why they deserve to stay in power.”
The hearings must remind voters of Trump’s alleged effort to “overturn the election” with a “mob” of supporters who “stormed the Capitol with false claims of a stolen election,” the Times continued.
But an NBC News poll shows only 45 percent of Americans find Donald Trump responsible for January 6 protest, declining 7 points since January 2021. Additional polling reveals that 58 percent believe, correctly, that the committee is biased toward Democrats.
The Times article also stressed the need for Democrats during the hearing to play on voters’ emotions with a “carefully choreographed rollout of revelations”:
With their control of Congress hanging in the balance, Democrats plan to use made-for-television moments and a carefully choreographed rollout of revelations over the course of six hearings to remind the public of the magnitude of Mr. Trump’s effort to overturn the election, and to persuade voters that the coming midterm elections are a chance to hold Republicans accountable for it.
The media aren’t even bothering anymore to hide their collusion with the illegitimate Biden administration to demonize Trump and his supporters as domestic terrorists.
