Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden finally held what was billed as a news conference with journalists recently — something of a rarity in a campaign that’s relied on staged question-and-answer sessions. It was a truly embarrassing display of hackery from the media.
Here’s a quick sampling of some of the queries Biden faced from supposedly dispassionate journalists:
A reporter asked Biden about anonymously sourced claims (published last week in The Atlantic) that Trump had made belittling remarks about veterans: “When you hear these remarks … what does it tell you about Trump’s soul and the life he leads?”
Follow-up: What would Biden “say to supporters of QAnon” and to Trump for “not rejecting that conspiracy?”
“We also know that Russia has been trying to sow doubt about the system. Are you concerned at all that this messaging may be working, that your supporters may give up on voting by mail because they’re concerned that it may be rigged?”
