It is astounding not just how poorly the latest day of testimony from the January 6 Commission turned out but how quickly things unraveled. Previously, the minds of the panel had suspended things until some nebulous date next month, but then – suddenly – they announced a hastily-called “Emergency” hearing for Tuesday. They had the goods, you see, and this needed to be displayed to the public! For all the same reasons that you should wait a day before firing off that enflamed email or step back before you tweet-angry and hit SEND, the J‑6 Committee would have benefitted before rushing forward in an emotional fervor. Instead, they presented Cassidy Hutchinson before the cameras with all the pride of parents at a country club coming-out cotillion, and it has become a laughable mess for all involved. To lay out the aftermath, we will first look at the media reactions to the Hutchinson testimony. I can’t overstate how deeply important her words delivered had been. That is because the journalists have already overstated things. » @JakeTapper: We all just heard “one of the most stunning offerings of testimony in American history.”— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) June 28, 2022» @JakeTapper: We all just heard “one of the most stunning offerings of testimony in American history.” …
