CBS first major TV network to bail on impeachment hearings
CBS on Tuesday became the first big television network to hit the breaks on wall-to-wall coverage of the impeachment hearings.
The network ended their special report of the hearings around 12:20 p.m., amid Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s testimony — though coverage continued on it’s news app and digital platform, CBSN.
“Strange… CBS ended its special report at 12:20. ABC, NBC, PBS, all the cable news nets are continuing to show the Vindman/Williams hearing,” CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter noted.

CBS says it's streaming the rest of this session on the web, & will resume on broadcast at 3pm when the next witnesses start.— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) November 19, 2019
