Democrats Are Way More Obsessed With Impeachment Than Republicans | FiveThirtyEight:
Impeachment chatter has also become common on cable news. On Fox News this month, Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor, called for Obama’s impeachment, for instance. But for every mention of impeachment on Fox News in July, there have been five on liberal-leaning MSNBC.
This data comes from a Lexis-Nexis search of transcripts on each
network. It counts each mention of the words “impeach” or “impeachment.”
The terms were used 32 times in a single episode of MSNBC’s “The Ed
Show” on Monday. (Ordinarily, I’d adjust for the overall volume of words
spoken on each network, but I know from my previous research that MSNBC and Fox News have about the same number of words recorded in Lexis-Nexis.)
