Biden’s Historic ‘Luck’ with a Pusillanimous Press

By Tim Graham

Editor’s note. This is excerpted from a post that appeared today at Newsbusters and is reposted with permission.

The political-insider website Axios published a story Wednesday headlined, “Joe Biden is the luckiest, least scrutinized frontrunner.” Mike Allen and Hans Nichols declared “Eight months ago, Joe Biden was in danger of losing the Democratic nomination. Now he’s a prohibitive favorite for president — who got there with lots of luck and shockingly little scrutiny.”

Or to put it another way, Biden is blessed with loads of “luck” due to a press corps that has energetically avoided all their own sloganeering about holding public officials accountable.

Axios didn’t note that President Trump submitted to a rough interview with Jonathan Swan of Axios that liberal outlets everywhere exploited, while Biden has not.

President Trump submitted to a rough interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that liberal outlets everywhere exploited. Biden’s gone nowhere near Wallace.

President Trump was lambasted as a moron for granting a pile of interviews to Washington Post “legend” Bob Woodward that liberal outlets everywhere exploited. Biden has not.

The media are laser-focused on one objective: sending Trump back to private life.  As Axios admitted, “The media’s obsession with Trump — and Trump’s compulsion to dominate the news — allowed Biden to purposely and persistently minimize public appearances and tough questions.”

There’s a word for a presidential aspirant “persistently minimizing” tough questions: Coward.
