The long thin line between the press and the press spokesmen for the Democrats was eliminated a while back. All that’s left is the sheer cringe of watching the media churn out stories that could have been and probably were written by Dem comms people.
That and the water carrying which sometimes tips over into sad apologetics.
Take this recent entry from CNN on the attempt to shift Biden’s messaging on the pandemic which in the midst of the heroic depiction of the Biden team trying to figure out how to save its election prospects offers this sad moment.
Biden opened his appearance by declaring he wanted to deliver a “direct message” to the American people.
“For the unvaccinated, we are looking at a winter of severe illness and death for the unvaccinated — for themselves, their families and the hospitals they’ll soon overwhelm. But there’s good news: If you’re vaccinated and you have your booster shot, you’re protected from severe illness and death,” the President said
He’d determined ahead of time that his message would be muddled if he answered any questions afterward, so he sat uncharacteristically silent as reporters peppered him on their way out.
The guy who repeatedly dodges questions from reporters was “uncharacteristically silent”.
I mean there’s lying and then there’s lying that’s so pathetically bad you’ve gotta laugh.
At least we know why Biden avoids answering questions from reporters. Because he doesn’t want to “muddle” his “message”.
Functional adult politicians actually use Q & A sessions to amplify their message. But CNN would like us to know that Biden is incapable of answering even softball questions from the media without muddling his message. That’s probably not what CNN was going for, but that’s what it said.
