"On the Wednesday morning edition of Fox & Friends, the co-hosts gave a peculiar message to their viewers about how to watch the crucial events of the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump: Don’t even bother.

“If you watch some of it, there were snippets — and we’re showing you the good stuff — it was unbelievably boring,” said Steve Doocy. “And I don’t know how people can follow it.”

Pete Hegseth also chimed in: “We watched so that you don’t have to watch the entire thing.”
“I don’t think the majority of people watched,” added Ainsley Earhardt. “I think they just turn to us to be able to summarize it for them, because it was so long.”

The fact is, watching actual legal proceedings — even the half-political, quasi-judicial process of an impeachment trial — is not like watching an episode of Law & Order, in which the courtroom fireworks are all contained in a few minutes. In real life, this can all be very slow, with long and drawn-out arguments.

But it’s still important to understand important issues like government corruption and the limits on power, and it’s worthy of discussion by an active and concerned citizenry. And clearly, the last thing Fox wants is an informed public."
