Biden Clears NBC’s Low Bar at UN: ‘Normal,’ ‘Standard,’ 'Good'
Joe Biden hit the low standards that NBC has for the President on Tuesday, politely praising his speech to the United Nations as “normal,” “standard” and “good.” They were clearly doing their best to offer the standard liberal media talking points expected for a Democratic President.

Didn't Take Long: ABC, CBS Lose Interest in Drone Strike on Kids
If a Biden blunder is too big to ignore completely, the liberal media will do the next best thing: move on as quickly as possible.

Engel on Afghanistan Debacle: ‘Worst Capitulation of Western Values’

Weekend at Biden’s: CBS Tries to Prop Up Pres as Tough on Terrorists
Shockingly, the Biden administration’s reliance on the Taliban to stop other terrorist attacks around the Kabul airport proved to be a failure on Thursday, as a pair of ISIS-K suicide bombers left 13 U.S. service members and at least 60 Afghans slaughtered. But despite this fact, the CBS Evening News tried to prop up President Biden in an attempt to make him appear tough on terror,…

Rolling heartbreaking…
