Conservative columnist excoriates the irresponsibility of the MSM at the Biden Press Conference

Conservative columnist excoriates the irresponsibility of the MSM at the Biden Press Conference.

I was never a fan of Washington Post Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin. But she nailed the Biden press conference as a waste of time even as he excelled irrespective of their Fox News style questioning.

Rubin called the Press Conference perfectly.

See full episodes here.

Jennifer Rubin writes, “Their failure to ask about the pandemic, the recession, anti-Asian violence, climate change or even infrastructure (Biden had to bring it up himself) was nothing short of irresponsible.  They pleaded for a news conference and then showed themselves to be unserious. They never laid a glove on Biden; they did, however, make a case for why these events are an utter waste of the president’s time.”

After weeks of whining, the White House press corps got its first official Biden presidential news conference on Thursday. President Biden used the event to pledge that 200 million covid-19 vaccinations would be administered by the end of his first 100 days, double his original goal. (The administration will reach 100 million shots on Friday, Day 58.) He also announced that a survey showed nearly half of K-12 schools are open full-time for in-person learning. (He expressed confidence it would be more than half by the 100th day, consistent with his goal.) Certainly, that should be near the top of any news coverage. …

The media did not distinguish themselves. By asking about immigration multiple times and echoing the false narrative that Biden had created a “surge,” they showed they were more interested in sound bites than actual news. Their failure to ask about the pandemic, the recession, anti-Asian violence, climate change or even infrastructure (Biden had to bring it up himself) was nothing short of irresponsible. They pleaded for a news conference and then showed themselves to be unserious. They never laid a glove on Biden; they did, however, make the case for why these events are an utter waste of the president’s time.

I thought the Mainstream Media would have learned their lessons. They are partially responsible for the American dysfunction from being very disconnected from what people need to know.
