Joe Biden likes to lash out at reporters from Fox News Channel. But not so strangely it’s a lovefest between Biden and left wing reporters.
This story is the perfect example of media bias.
Did the WP forget about the many vulgar taunts/death threats, against Trump, especially from Left-wing Hollywood celebrities? Yet the WP now frames the story as poor Joe Biden. This is activist journalism. https://t.co/ofYZrMQe2U

Their mutual admiration society is based on the fact that they have a deal: They don’t press Biden on any issue and he praises them as geniuses. This is considered objective journalism in today’s Washington. Here are some gory examples of Biden-press circular onanism.
“It sounds like I’m being solicitous — you’re all bright as hell, well-informed — more informed than any group of people in America,” said Biden to the media.
“Pres Biden, in the longest news conference in presidential history, made news, pushed back on critics, called out lies, took responsibility for mistakes he believes he made, expressed surprise at GOP, talked foreign policy and didn’t lash out on reporters. Quite the change,” tweeted NBC’s Yamiche Alcindor. You spoke too soon Yamiche.
Left-wing reporter Brian Karem cooed after that presser, “He never once tried to belittle us.” Yup, another too soon.
After barking at CNN’s Kaitlan Collins on June 16 when she asked him a question about Vladimir Putin, Biden told reporters, “I mean it, you’re the brightest people in the country … I’m not being solicitous. You are.” Dear God, how could anybody buy such blatant sucking up? Answer: Welcome to the DC press corps.
“Just like the other question, there’s a logical — and I’ve heard you speak about it because you always — I’m not being solicitous, but you — you’re always straight up about what you’re doing,” Biden said to media.
“A lot of you have followed this, and I mean this sincerely, the press is the smartest group of people in town,” he said. “You honed this stuff down clearly. I think you found the same thing.”
“Again, I’m not being solicitous,” he said at a press conference on Sept. 4, 2020. “Among the brightest people I’ve dealt with in my whole career have been the press. Not a joke. You all are extremely well-educated, you’re well-read … The vast majority have tried to report the news, not just opinion.” Notice the robotic “solicitous” line and the rest of the obvious repetition. You’d think it would raise the bullsh** antenna of the press. Nope. Their fragile egos are such they actually believe it.
