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.
