still haven’t seen single report on how Thanksgiving under Biden, after being canceled last yr bc of Trump Covid incompetence, is good news for WH and Dems
funny how press not interested in positive optics stories
the Biden Thanksgiving win story is such a painfully obvious Political Journalism 101 one

but nobody wants to do it bc it runs counter to beloved Beltway narrative

“The recent frenzy of gotcha stories represents an entirely new way of covering a sitting vice president. None of the white men who previously served in that position were put under this kind of a microscope, and certainly not months into their first term.”
“Trump’s VP is most famous for being chased by a mob that wanted to hang him during a deadly insurrection. But today, Harris supposedly feeling politically constrained is treated as breaking news.”

another Biden “crisis” evaporates
"What’s revealing is how the Beltway media remain overly fixated on inflation, while often turning a blind eye to all the signs of a surging economy. In other words, if it’s bad news for Biden, then it’s treated as Big News."

already so bored of Dems Doomed Midterm coverage for elections 50 wks away

notice how none of the reports note it’s entirely possible unemployment rate Nov 2022 will be 3.5% and Dow Jones sitting at 45,000?
good grief this is same Beltway press that thought “caravans” were going to save GOP during 2018 midterms

they lost 40 seats
press after Va Gov race: everything is going to be exactly the same in Nov. 2022! nothing in the political landscape will be altered!

meanwhile, Fox News hasn't mentioned CRT once in two weeks.
