CNN is already overflowing with anticipation of the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump. But CNN also sounds like it’s seeking impeach Fox News and other conservative media outlets, openly lobbying cable providers to drop Fox or place them on some “sci-fi” tier that’s not next to “news” channels.
