Team Biden invites reporters to meetings where they lecture them for not carrying enough water for Biden: report
Working the refs -- aka, the media -- is a part of every political campaign. But in this media climate, the disingenuosity of any Democrat claiming the media isn't biased enough against Donald Trump, let alone Joe Biden claiming so, needs to be marveled at and studied. That's what the Biden campaign is doing, inviting reporters to off-the-record meetings so they can lecture those reporters to do a better job attacking Biden's opponents.
According to a report from Semafor, Team Biden wants the media to do a better job helping the Biden campaign. That part isn't surprising. Joe Biden says the same thing himself. But at these off-the-record meetings, the Biden campaign has spreadsheets.
They’re also using it as an opportunity to tell them what they’re getting wrong. Two people with knowledge of the situation told Semafor that during meetings with reporters from outlets like The New York Times, the Washington Post, and others, campaign officials have invoked a coverage spreadsheet laying out areas where the team believes their reporting has fallen short.
The Donald Trump coverage is where, in the eyes of the Biden Campaign, the media needs to pick up the most slack. The unintentional humor in this next paragraph deserves its own stand-up special on Netflix.
In particular, campaign officials have chafed at some of the coverage of former President Donald Trump, feeling that outlets are too focused on his legal troubles and haven’t paid enough attention to some of his incendiary recent statements on the campaign trail.
The Biden Admin and the Democrats have indicted Trump, Biden's political opponent, four times. The media, thinking they were doing what was being asked of them, made the Trump indictments the main focus of their journalisming and content creating. But it's backfired. The indictments have done nothing but make Trump more popular.
So now the Biden Administration is lecturing the media for focusing on Trump's legal trouble too much. They want them to focus on dumb things Trump says on the campaign trail. A lot of time and effort is being spent by the Democrats to take Trump clips out of context. Joe Biden would appreciate it if the media got their act together and got with the program.
Per Semafor's report, everyone invited except for the New York Times, appeared open to getting with the program. And in another month or so, when another poll comes out labeling journalism as the least trust institution in America, no one is going to understand why.
