Will the Media’s Biden Sycophancy Ever End?

The media which categorically refused to report on Hunter Biden is reporting on the "indoguration" of Biden’s German shepherd

Now that Donald Trump has left the White House, the media are no longer even pretending to hold the government accountable. Sycophancy has already begun to dominate the airwaves and the press. The media have its man in the White House and we can expect nothing but fawning coverage from here on in.

Last week, advertising an interview with Kamala Harris and her husband, Douglas Emhoff, CBS Sunday Morning tweeted a clip of the new vice president being asked about her choice of Converse trainers.

‘We had to ask about that fashion choice, surely a first for a vice president’, host Jane Pauley said. ‘What is the story?’, she asked, as if there was a story at all. In case anyone was in doubt as to Harris’s virtue, viewers were offered a close-up of the shoes, which had two badges attached to them, one reading ‘stop hate’ and the other ‘black joy’.

Harris will also feature on the front cover of Vogue next month. The article has already been published online. One of the photos is titled ‘Mrs America’. A caption underneath reads: ‘Vice-president-elect Kamala Harris in a Michael Kors Collection suit. Hair, Bre Jaggers; makeup, Marquia James; set design, Julia Wagner; sittings editor, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson.’ Another photo caption draws attention to those damned sneakers (originally, the cover was to feature Harris in her Converse, but a bizarre backlash put paid to that idea).

And it’s not just in the US that the new first lady has provoked fawning coverage. The British edition of Vogue picked up the sneakers theme with a piece entitled, ‘How Kamala and her Converse rewrote the rule book on political style’.

The new president has also become the focus for pointless, doting coverage. CNN’s David Schalion, for instance, compared the lights set up along the National Mall for the inauguration to ‘extensions of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America’.

The New York Times, supposedly America’s paper of record, published an article on Tuesday entitled: ‘Biden has a Peloton bike. That raises issues at the White House.’ The ‘issue’, apparently, is that it necessitates ‘regular morning negotiations’ between Mr and Mrs Biden as to ‘who gets to ride’ the $1,900 bike ‘first’. How human and relatable the new first family are!

NPR, which outright refused to report on the Hunter Biden scandal during the election – declaring it a ‘pure distraction’ which would waste its journalists’ and listeners’ time – has reported on the ‘indoguration’ of Biden’s German shepherd.

Anyone expecting probing coverage of the new administration from the mainstream media is going to be sorely disappointed.

Where are the masks in the pic that they want us lowlifes to wear? This unelected president hasn’t worked a day in his life,,, hasn’t produced anything except laws to steal freedom, cash and now elections from the plebs.

And his VP,,, another lazy blood sucking parasite who has done nothing productive in her life,,, who states her and POC are up against White racism and are held back… She is first generation from immigrant parents and held a position of Senator and now VP. Does that sound like she is being restrained by Whites? We lost a refined First LADY and gained a woke complainer.

As this commentor stopped voting years ago don’t get the impression I am writing this because of politics. I grew up in a free America just like Biden. Difference is I take my oath to defend and protect the constitution seriously. Folks like Biden and Harris just say the words, then use it for toilet paper.

Watch what the do in the next few years. God says to judge people by their fruit, not by their words. Already we have rejoined the Global Cabal,,, UN, WHO and the Climate change cult all of which are enemies of free people everywhere and want you gone. As in gone! They claim diversity,,, Watch….

There’s ample evidence of Biden’s recent mental deterioration, and I figure he has less than 2 years before he’s too addled to effective perform his duties as POTUS. After Biden finally bites the big one it’s going to be Harris all the way so it’s best that she dresses well because she can do little else.
