STUNNER: NY Times Editorial Board Calls on Biden to Leave Presidential Race 'to Serve His Country'

If you were a New York Times reader Friday morning, you might have been surprised that the leftist rag that has “All the News That's Fit to Print" on its masthead didn’t have room on its front page to mention Joe Biden’s disastrous Thursday night performance at the presidential debate against Donald Trump. Seriously. They acted as if the biggest news story in the nation never happened and only printed a small box on the bottom corner to indicate there was further coverage inside.

But they knew it happened, and they knew it was a disaster—because their editorial board has now called on Biden to exit the race to "serve the country."

For a newspaper that was until very recently a loyal cheerleader for the president and a prominent source of gaslighting about his mental deterioration, the words were flabbergasting:

The clearest path for Democrats to defeat a candidate defined by his lies is to deal truthfully with the American public: acknowledge that Mr. Biden can’t continue his race, and create a process to select someone more capable to stand in his place to defeat Mr. Trump in November.

It is the best chance to protect the soul of the nation — the cause that drew Mr. Biden to run for the presidency in 2019 — from the malign warping of Mr. Trump. And it is the best service that Mr. Biden can provide to a country that he has nobly served for so long.

The Times should be ashamed of themselves, as they’re now stabbing the man in the back who they’ve helped prop up for so long. They’ve been lying to the American public, and it’s despicable:

The day before the debate, they wrote this garbage. Betting they wish they could take this one back after what we saw:

But looking past the verbal miscues and painful elocution, Mr. Biden does not wander into unreality the way that Mr. Trump, 78, often does and his substantive points are for the most part as conversant and informed as in the past. He exhibits a grasp of his policy choices and no one has cited a decision that he would have made differently if he were a decade younger.

It’s quite the turnaround:

The New York Times used to be considered one of the great papers in the world, but over time, it has beclowned itself and printed misinformation so many times that for many, it’s now a laughingstock. What’s not funny, however, is how many “serious” people continue to take its biased reporting as gospel. The Grey Lady is but a shell of its former self:

Biden’s debate fiasco may go down as one of the greatest political implosions in history—and The New York Times failed its readers every step along the way.
