It’ll be Van der Veen for the Win!
“When I watch the news, I watch one station and it’s raining. I watch another station, at the same time, and it’s sunny. Your coverage is so slanted, it’s got to stop!”
– Trump team attorney Michael Van der Veen live on CBSN
I love this guy. Watch the end – he’s completely disgusted, rips off his mic and walks away. Anchor Lana Zak struggles to maintain her ability to jostle fact, turning a standard, normal interview into an interruption match. Her only point is her pride; she stops actually listening to her guest (read: opponent) at the very beginning.
CBS: The Senate voted Saturday to acquit former President Trump on a charge of inciting a Jan. 6th insurrection at the Capitol. Following the vote, defense attorney Michael van der Veen joined CBSN’s Lana Zak to discuss the trial in a sometimes contentious interview.
The reporter can’t simply ask a question and listen to the expert provide an answer. Van der Veen is not swayed but emboldened.
I hope to see more of this. Got my radar up.
