An Excusing Frenzy For Biden's Fact Mangling

Excerpt:

The Washington Post caused an uproar inside the media when it reported that former Vice President Joe Biden told a "moving but false" war story at a campaign stop in Hanover, New Hampshire, on Aug. 23. He told 400 people he'd been asked to travel to the Kunar province in Afghanistan to recognize the heroism of a Navy captain but the captain protested that he didn't deserve it.

Biden even boasted of his own bravery. Some told him he shouldn't go, he said, but "We can lose a vice president. We can't lose many more of these kids. Not a joke." He added: "God's truth. My word as Biden."

It wasn't God's truth. It was a fabrication.

The Post checked the records and concluded: "In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony."

Biden went to Kunar province in 2008 before he was vice president, The Post says. The Navy captain he met was actually a 20-year-old Army specialist, Kyle White. Biden never pinned a medal on White but watched then-President Obama do so in 2014. Biden did pin a medal on a man who didn't want the medal, but that was an Army staff sergeant, Chad Workman, in 2011.

This was no "gaffe." It was either (a) a trail of gaffes indicating Biden has lost his marbles or (b ) a lie. Which is it, and how serious is this? The media's answers were predictable.

Former NBC News senior producer Shawna Thomas (now with Vice News): "When Trump lies, it's about Google and Google changing votes and making you scared about things. When Joe Biden lies, it's about trying to say he's going to be commander in chief and he understands heroism."

NBC's Chuck Todd dragged in former President Ronald Reagan to aid Biden: (T)here's a part of Biden that feels more Reaganesque that way. You're like, 'Oh, it's Grandpa. It's Uncle Joe.' Whatever that is. 'Eh, let the old man do it.'"

That one's priceless. The media were not generous to Reagan. In 1983, then-NBC anchor Tom Brokaw told Mother Jones magazine that Reagan didn't understand "the enormous difficulty a lot of people have in just getting through life, because he's lived in this fantasy land for so long."

If the media wanted Biden out, like they did in 88, this story would have blown up. Because it did not, they must think Biden is the best to beat Trump and are protecting him.

Their transparency is abundantly clear.

I'm convinced the EstablishMediaTM really wants Warren. But maybe they're not convinced they can 'sell' her so are hedging with Biden? Or maybe they don't want to be seen as TOO blatant about it yet?

Or maybe...just maybe...they're all just falling all over themselves in comical heaps while the EstablishMediaTM is tripping all over its collective tongue trying to minimize the damage.

Occam's Razor?

Joe Biden Hits Media For Reporting On ‘Irrelevant’ Gaffes, Blames Bloody Eye On His Contact Lens

The Daily Caller

September 08, 2019 11:40 AM ET

excerpt:

Former Vice President Joe Biden told a reporter in New Hampshire this week that members of the media aren’t doing their jobs right when they report on his repeated gaffes.

Biden addressed his series of verbal flubs, including when he infamously said he was in Vermont when he was really in New Hampshire, during an interview with the Laconia Daily Sun published Friday.

According to the paper, he said that reporting on his gaffes, “allows you guys to avoid doing your job.”

Can't wait for the MSM to start claiming Biden is assaulting the free press and destroying democracy... :whistling:
