For a long time, Biden has blamed the mainstream media for his failing approval numbers. Despite the longstanding liberal bias of the media, Joe thinks they are not doing all they can to help his administration.
He and other Democrats claim the media’s “messaging” is the reason so many Americans disapprove of his administration.
Biden has a combative history with the media. And his handlers have tried to manipulate his interactions with them. But it looks as if they’ve gone too far to control how the media covers this president.
From The Post Millennial:
The Biden re-election campaign has been taking reporters and editors from corporate media outlets to Wilmington, Delaware in off-the-record trips. On the Biden team’s agenda is to instruct the reporters on “what they’re getting wrong,” with campaign officials invoking a coverage spreadsheet that discusses where the team believes the outlets’ reporting is not up to par.
In what many will call a violation of the First Amendment’s free press clause, Biden’s campaign staffers have been taking reports on trips to apparently coach them on how to cover the president.
During these off-the-record trips to Delaware, Biden’s team lectures reporters on “what they’re getting wrong” regarding Biden’s struggling administration. They even have a spreadsheet that lays out the areas in which the media is not helping Biden.
This will no doubt disgust many Americans. The media’s job is to honestly report the news. That includes discussing stories that make a politician, even a president, look bad. And there are plenty of issues from this White House that make Biden look bad.
Yet it seems Joe Biden has always expected the media to give him glowing coverage, long before he became president. Biden has a history of getting angry with reporters who ask him tough, challenging questions. He’s even been accused of getting physical with female reporters who confront him.
It should not be a surprise, then, to learn that his staff is trying to control how the media reports on Biden and his campaign. Polling suggests, though, that no matter what the media says, most Americans will give Biden a failing grade.
Stories like this are what undoubtedly cause Americans to lose faith in the media. Major news networks trumpet how accurate and important they are. Yet they continue to get “in bed” with Democrats, going on trips to scheme how they can cover up Biden’s mistakes.
- Biden’s campaign has been taking reporters on trips to coach them on how to report on Biden.
- Joe’s handlers have lectured reporters on how they are “getting it wrong.”
- This will be considered a violation of the free press, as many Americans distrust the media to begin with.
