Joe Biden Schools Our Failed Political Press

Joe Biden’s 2020 Goat Rodeo Campaign

This is really great, and good on Joe Biden for demanding accuracy from our failed Political Press:

A day before the opening of President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign is issuing a pre-emptive strike, sending an unusual open memo to the media warning against disinformation pushed by the president and his defenders.

The memo, first obtained by NBC News, is also a shot across the bow of Republican senators as they consider whether to entertain Trump’s demands to call Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, as a witness in the trial….

In its first forceful pushback since impeachment proceedings began, the Biden campaign is demanding that “any media organization referencing, reporting on, or repeating these claims” from Trump and his allies “must state clearly and unambiguously that they have been discredited and debunked by authoritative sources.”

It’s really a eff’ing shame that all of us have to educate our elite political journalists about journalism, but that’s the world we live in today.

    Sadly, there’s a Fairness Doctrine for that.

    On our high school paper the first thing they told us was. “The sun will rise tomorrow., that is not a fact. “I think the sun will rise tomorrow,” that is a fact.” Sadly, about 30% of the class could never quite grasp that concept.

    Even more sadly, more than 90% of our media now appears to be composed of those 30%.
