Take a look at this Politico story about Biden's coronavirus speech on Thursday -- but pretend you're reading it as a release on Biden for President letterhead. This is written by Adam Cancryn, a professional reporter for a respected, national media outlet. But it's not a story, it is a press release. Suggestion: Get some Biden for President letterhead -- put this on it, make the reporter the contact with his email, and then ask: Is this a Biden 2020 news release? Or a "news story"?
Exactly four years before Joe Biden cursed at a voter and appeared to threaten him with physical violence, Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, grabbed a reporter by the arm. Both events triggered national media coverage, but even though Biden is the actual candidate and Lewandowski just a staffer, it was the Lewandowski moment four years ago that triggered the most coverage, and the most negative commentary.
On March 10th, Univision’s evening newscast Biden’s unhinged response against an automotive worker during his visit to Michigan. While the vulgar language covered by the Democratic nominee was shown, the key feature in which Biden threatened to slap the worker along with calling him a “horse’s a**” was completely ignored.
On Thursday morning, while previewing an upcoming speech from former Vice President Joe Biden on coronavirus, MSNBC correspondent Mike Memoli gushed that the global pandemic and Trump administration response would “gift wrap” a political “opportunity” for the Democratic frontrunner.
One of the lead debate moderators for CNN’s Sunday night debate is Univision anchor Jorge Ramos – a journalist so opposed to Donald Trump he was actually thrown out of a 2015 campaign event for being so rude. Since then, Ramos and his network Univision have railed against Trump on immigration and fueled the rise of the most left-wing candidate in the race – the openly socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.
When former Vice President Joe Biden visited Detroit on Tuesday, he got more than he expected when a construction worker asked whether he would let gun owners keep their firearms or use the government to remove them instead. The employee who posed that question was a guest on Wednesday morning's edition of Fox & Friends, when he said he was surprised that the Democratic frontrunner responded with a great deal of hostility and vulgarity to his question.
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.
The independence of the “independent fact checkers” is looking very questionable again, leaping into the fray to protest that a tweet featuring a brief video clip of Joe Biden is somehow “Mostly False” (as PolitiFact ruled). Earth to PolitiFact: the network "news" people omit the full context of quotes on a regular basis, but they aren't tagged as "deceptive" editors.
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."
