How can the media pick at the faults of Republican candidates while pretending Biden is a serious candidate?
Back when John McCain publicly announced he was “suspending” his Presidential campaign and returning to the Senate to “save the country” from financial ruin by putting taxpayers on the hook to bail out bankers, the media treated it as a joke. And they were absolutely right to do so. The only one who believed John McCain’s rhetoric was probably John McCain himself, since no one takes him as seriously as he does.
But it was a joke and the media knew it, as did everyone else.
Now the media is treating Donald Trump with all sorts of demeaning language which some conservatives might agree that he deserves. Others don’t. But I can certainly understand that Liberals would see Trump as a “loudmouth,” etc.
Okay, fine. Media liberals don’t like Trump. That doesn’t shock me too much.
But what is the deal with taking Biden so seriously? The most preposterous stories are written about him as if no one would ever doubt his credibility.
A case in point from Politico: “Joe Biden said to be considering one-term presidency.”
If Vice President Joe Biden makes the leap into the Democratic presidential race, he could promise that he would serve just one term in the White House, journalist and author Carl Bernstein said Friday.
“And one thing that I keep hearing about Biden is that if he were to declare and say, because age is such a problem for him if he does, I want to be a one-term president. I want to serve for four years, unite Washington. I’ve dealt with the Republicans in Congress all my public life,” Bernstein told CNN’s “New Day.”
“I think there’s a conversation going on to that effect among his aides and friends,” he said. “It could light fire to the current political environment.”
Bernstein suggested that the vice president stands to benefit the most from the current political environment as Hillary Clinton struggles to stem the tide of the ongoing scandal over her use of a private email server while at the State Department and poll numbers about her honesty and trustworthiness decline.
How does anyone respond to such a poser being treated seriously in what claims to be a serious journal? If you believe that Biden actually wants to only serve one term if he becomes President you are an idiot.
And what are we to make of the idea that Biden can be trusted, as the article goes on to emphasize? The man who supported the known lie, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” is someone we can trust?
The media should be treating Biden at least as badly as they treat Trump. But there isn’t even a pretense of objectivity anymore. They are shameless shills.
