This week on “We’ve Got Issues,” Liz Preza and Joshua Holland wonder how mainstream journalists could find that gripping testimony from the fourth presidential impeachment in our nation’s 232-year history lacks pizzazz, but some obscure story about a college newspaper apologizing to students about its coverage of a protest merits several days in the news cycle. They also look at some stories that might have been overlooked in this week’s flood of Trump news.
The we’re joined by Joan Walsh, The Nation’s national affairs correspondent and a contributor to CNN, to dig into the first impeachment hearings and to talk about why looking back to Watergate to get a handle on what’s happening today is a fool’s errand.
