Joe Biden’s rise from the ash heap to Democratic frontrunner, while remarkable unto itself, is also remarkable for the manner in which it exposed the nation’s domestic Spanish-language media’s agenda-driven journalism. The networks built a narrative which centered around making Bernie Sanders a “Latino” candidate with which to flex power and influence.
Though he’s one of the gentlemen who helped “Pink Floyd” build The Wall, Bob Geldof sure doesn’t admire any of President Trump’s policies.
What a difference a political party makes. In 2019, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd linked Donald Trump’s “rhetoric” and tone to a shooting at a synagogue. Yet, on Tuesday, he cheered an unhinged Joe Biden moment in which the Democrat berated and threatened a “horse’s ass,” “full of shit” voter.
The liberal billionaire Godfather of the left is definitely not sitting on the sidelines this electoral cycle. The left’s “flagship 2020 super PAC,” Priorities USA, is going to be providing cover via ads for the presumptive Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden. Politico reported March 9 that the PAC is “arguing that as the party’s likely nominee for president, Biden needs to be defended from attacks being waged by President Donald Trump and his allies.”
As Joe Biden swept several more Democratic primaries Tuesday night, CNN anchor Jake Tapper warned of “getting real 2004 vibes,” referring to the failed presidential campaign of John Kerry. Tapper particularly lamented how Democratic voters were behaving like “a bunch of Rachel Maddows and Chris Hayess” by trying to decide on the most electable nominee.
Joe Scarborough proved once again this morning that there is virtually nothing that the liberal media can't spin into a positive for one of its own. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough claimed that Joe Biden telling a construction worker that he was "full of s---" on gun control was proof of Biden's humanity, and that he was a "fighter."
MSNBC juggled two priorities during its Super Tuesday 2 coverage with the first being continuing to boost and rehabilitate the image of Joe Biden as he stands to be the 2020 Democratic nominee. But the other and, for the focus of purposes here, was continuing to paint the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus as disastrous and rendering Trump the 21st century incarnation of Jimmy Carter and an “underground railroad” for real information about the virus.
Super Tuesday 2 marked a further coronation of Joe Biden by the liberal media and a pivot away from any and all critical coverage of the gaffe-ridden candidate. MSNBC did its part, marveling at Biden putting “not just the South in play, but the Sun Belt” as well thanks to his “fascinating kinetic moment.” And then after Biden’s victory speech, one MSNBC pundit was there to swoon over his “very soft tone of voice as if you’re in the living room with him” and his use of the word “honor” that he would restore to the presidency.
Former 2020 Democratic hopeful Andrew Yang had been a paid CNN commentator for only a few weeks before deciding that their Democratic primary coverage of the first Mini-Super Tuesday was the right time for him to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden live on-air.
Former Clinton official and frequent cable news guest James Carville was not in a very good mood throughout the 2020 Democratic primary season, but Tuesday represented quite the turn as he not only reveled in former Vice President Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday 2 wins, but he declared “[l]et’s shut this puppy down” in reference to the primary campaigns going forward because “this thing is decided.”
The liberal media insist they and the Democratic Party were not politicizing the growing coronavirus outbreak, but in the midst of their Tuesday primary night coverage, CNN’s panel of liberals took some time to fantasize about how there will be, as former 2020 hopeful Andrew Yang put it, “a real hunger for” the competency of the Obama administration from “many, many Americans if the coronavirus crisis continues to grow.”
In a viral moment from an auto plant in Detroit Tuesday, a raging Joe Biden lashed out and threatened to assault (slap) an autoworker who confronted him about his support for curtailing Second Amendment rights. The threat was omitted by all the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and Univision, with CNNEE and Telemundo ignoring the incident altogether. But what NBC Nightly News did was particularly deceptive in that they completely cut around Biden’s threat of physical violence.
