Appearing on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Company Monday morning, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell pointed out that even President Biden’s left-wing supporters in the media know that “the wheels are coming off” his flailing administration, which is why the Democrat has actually received some critical press coverage lately. However, Bozell cautioned that liberal reporters would “back off” from holding Biden accountable as soon as they feared “their agenda” was in jeopardy.
“I put out an editorial this morning that the media is just beginning to turn on President Biden,” host Stuart Varney noted before playing a montage of usually Democrat-friendly media outlets reporting bad news for Biden. “Is this the beginnings of a turn, Brent?,” Varney wondered.
Bozell warned that leftist media ideology would win out: “It depends how serious they see it. If they see it where the agenda, his agenda – their agenda – is going to be derailed, they’re gonna back off.
Even so, Bozell observed that the press just couldn’t ignore Biden’s blatant incompetence on multiple fronts: “You can’t – when all the wheels are coming off the truck, all 18 wheels are coming off, you’ve got to do some kind of reporting on there.”
Earlier in the discussion, Bozell hammered the left-wing co-hosts of ABC’s The View for refusing to ask Vice President Kamala Harris a single challenging question during an exclusive Friday interview:
And so she [Harris] shows up 10 minutes before the end of the show, nothing serious is asked of this woman. You knew nothing would be, Stuart, you knew nothing would be. You’ve got this administration collapsing, the wheels are coming off everywhere, you think you would get some tough questions. Nothing
