In response to a tweet indicating that “NYT editorial board supports impeaching Trump, joining WaPo, USA Today, LA Times, Boston Globe, and others”, Mollie Hemingway responds
Impeachment was ALWAYS a media effort that they bullied Democrats into doing even when Mueller failed to deliver goods. It BEGAN with editorial board support, it didn’t build to it.
I would also assert that this was the same with the Nixon impeachment process which managed to get rid of a president by resignation. The back-slapping and high-fives in the media over the last 45 years provided the mythos that encouraged them to think they could do it again. For example, this tweet points out this article from the Washington Post:
The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun

And then, years later, success!:
Washington Post celebrating the impeachment of their biggest political opponent. An impeachment that they worked so hard to achieve over several years.
I’m deleting a tweeting tonight that is being misinterpreted by some as an endorsement of some kind. To be absolutely clear, we at the Post are merely glad we are getting a break for the holidays after a long 3 months. I will retweet the group photo w/ a better caption !
But, as per normal, the Babylon Bee covered this the best of all Unbiased Washington Post Launches Celebratory Fireworks As Trump Impeached.
