Biden's Press Conference Demonstrates What a Cowed and Compliant Political Media We Have

Yesterday, Joe Biden took a break from trying to find ways of getting male convicts into women’s prisons, sniffing the hair of random women and watching his poll trajectory begin to resemble the Hindenburg to try to make that hobo jump onto Nancy Pelosi’s Impeachment Express.

What is astonishing about this is that Joe Biden, himself, is at Ground Zero of this debacle. It was through his influence peddling, or conversely through Ukraine’s attempt to gain influence with Biden, that his drug addict, grifting whelp got a $50,000/month job on the board of directors of a Ukraine national gas company at the time when Joe Biden was allegedly the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine policy. It is Joe Biden that we have on tape boasting about demanding–and getting–a Ukraine anti-corruption prosecutor fired because the guy was getting too close to his son. And yet, the political press acts like gentle stenographers.

Imagine if you will, President Trump being allowed to prose on for about 15 minutes with no interruptions and have the press cover the statement as Revelation and not even mention Trump’s role? Read this article to see how it was covered. Listen to the meek, barely audible questions asked as Biden strides majestically from the podium? Do those folks sound serious? No. They don’t.

After Biden was safely gone, then the spin started.

Wait…you don’t think there was a purpose in getting a free infomercial chock-a-block with his talking points distributed without contradiction? You don’t think there was value in getting every major print outlet to use his talking points as a segue to attacking Trump? He may be right about it not moving the needle but that isn’t because Biden wasn’t trying nor because he didn’t get a lot of help.
