VIDEO: Media praised Michael Avenatti, convicted felon, as the man who could take down Trump

Over the years, the media has tried hard to paint celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, now a convicted felon, as a star who could take down President Donald Trump.
This idea appeared to buckle on Friday when Avenatti was convicted on three charges related to his scheme to extort over $20 million from the sportswear and apparel company Nike. Despite his legal issues, Avenatti has received both face time and praise from CNN, MSNBC, ABC and other media outlets.
The article goes on to state the following:
A Media Research Center study from 2018 found that Avenatti, who gained notoriety when he represented porn star Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against Trump, was featured on CNN 74 times over the course of just 10 weeks. MSNBC came in second with 57 interviews during the time period.
Avenatti appreared on broadcast and cable news shows 147 times. The study also found that MSNBC featured him seven times in just one day.
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle once said, “And you know what? I owe Michael Avenatti an apology. For the last few weeks, I’ve been saying, ‘Enough, already, Michael, I’ve seen you everywhere. What do you have left to say?’ I was wrong, brother. You have a lot to say.”
“The Democrats could learn something from you. You are messing with Trump a lot more than they are,” she added.
Multiple networks also entertained the idea that Avenatti had a shot at taking down President Trump in the 2020 election.
Brian Stelter, host of CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’, once brought up the idea in an interview with Avenatti back in 2019.
“Looking ahead to 2020, one of the reasons why I’m taking you seriously as a [2020 presidential] contender is because of your presence on cable news,” Stelter said.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson, once called out Avenatti during a face-to-face interview 2018 for taking advantage of Stormy Daniels. He accused Avenatti of using Daniels to gain fame and fortune.
Avenatti is now facing charges for committing fraud and aggrieved identity theft related to Daniels, whom he allegedly stole $300,000 in book proceeds from.
