There’s no question that most of the national media is in the tank for Joe Biden.
We saw that revealed in a moment of honesty from CNN’s Van Jones, when he said that however he did in his speech that media would have praised it anyway. While we may know that, it’s not something you generally hear them admitting. Needless to say, Jones’ words didn’t make host Anderson Cooper happy with the look he head on his face.
But there was another moment that revealed what cattle media can be at the command of the Democrats. hurry outside after Biden concluded his speech or they risked missing his fireworks event. So they did.

Normally we only run that fast for free food! Or drink! OK, especially drink. (Proud member of NY Financial Writers’ Association and Follies veteran here!) Anyway, those fireworks were cool and very American!

This explains sooo much. Every ‘journalist’ pretends it’s not creepy to have zero access to a presidential candidate that Rasmussen polls show 38% of voters believe has dementia. But offer them a free continental breakfast and a sideshow and they run like cattle

This tweet tells you more about the modern news media in 12 seconds than you would learn in an entire (online) college journalism class…

This is more than a little embarrassing with the media looking like lapdogs who run at the command of Biden.
It reminded people of this moment:

Wouldn’t that have been the time to try to ask Biden questions or talk to him after his speech? You know, that job that journalists are supposed to do?
Not to mention all the lack of social distancing there. Chalk up more evidence that people can get out and vote. It also was a little discordant that many of the rest of us weren’t allowed to have official fireworks demonstrations because of the Wuhan coronavirus, but suddenly here’s one for Biden?
Though the parts of the convention were held in Wisconsin, the fireworks and Biden’s speech were not. But Biden never went to Wisconsin so one has to ask why? Perhaps this is the reason why. By not going, he never had an unguarded moment, he was never asked a question by a reporter.
But that means he is also following in the failed tradition of Hillary Clinton of never really making it to Wisconsin, despite the fact that that was one of the reasons they chose Wisconsin.
