Dear Mainstream Media: You’re Squirming and We Love It

by Stephen Green

Democrat-Media Complex panic over Presidentish Joe Biden’s reelection chances is turned up to 11, and the sound is so glorious that I’ll gladly risk permanent hearing loss listening to it.

The fear is palpable in stories ranging from gentle advice aimed at nudging Biden in a better direction politically to out-and-out panicmongering over Orange Man Bad that makes the anti-Trump stuff from 2016 and 2020 almost look sane in comparison.

The gentle version is when Democrats hit up the Mainstream Media to ask Biden to show more “empathy on the economy.” Things aren’t that bad, you see. Biden just needs to show the kind of concern voters are looking for.

From there, things escalate with lame attempts to tell readers that it’s the voters who are wrong.

Northeastern’s David Lazer, who heads up the Civic Health and Institutions Project, explained the shift this way: “In general there’s been a lot of negativity about Biden and younger voters may have been more responsive to that.” Not that Biden has done a bad job, mind you, or that Trump has somehow become acceptable. There’s just this vibe, you know, this negativity about Biden. The denial is strong with this one.

Then there’s the swing-for-the-fences panicmongering like this one from The New Republic: How the Hell Can People Be Nostalgic for Donald Trump? Yet—They Are.

I dunno — low inflation, rising wages, peace?

The New York Times chose Memorial Day to publish an op-ed by Russian journalist Mikhail Zygar, comparing Biden to aged-but-lovable Boris Yeltsin in 1996 and Donald Trump to the resurgent Communist threat represented by election opponent Gennady Zyuganov.

Is Trump supposed to be Literally Hitler™ or a filthy Commie? It’s so hard to keep track these days.

The M.S. Media loyaly to the Democrats is costing them

The media is the enemy of a free people. A properly functioning FCC would revoke their licenses for knowingly lying to the American people.

Of course, this is absolutely, irrefutable proof that the leftist Ministry of Propaganda promotes Democrats and Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden instead of reporting the truth and defending the Constitution, nation and citizens.

Learn to code indeed.

WaPo CEO to reporters: ‘We’re losing large amounts of money… People aren’t reading your stuff. I can’t sugarcoat it anymore’…

When Democrat are making up lies left and right, who needs to read WaPo’s lies?
