NewsBusters Podcast: Alex Wagner Whines About Biden Debate In Advance

The panic over President Biden’s debate performance in 10 days has already broken out.

On Friday night, MSNBC host Alex Wagner whined that Donald Trump will be held to a much lower standard than Biden during the debates. Journalist Susan Glasser agreed, saying the MAGA base doesn’t hold Trump “accountable” like…well, hostile leftist Democrat journalists. Do they hold Biden accountable on MSNBC? If they did, it would be to satisfy viewers further to the left than Biden.

They are upset that Donald Trump’s voters don’t judge Trump in the same way that leftist MSNBC hosts judge Trump. They expect all voters to accept their wisdom and agree with it entirely. They grew more upset over the weekend when video of a Hollywood fundraiser showed former president Barack Obama leading Biden off the stage like he needed guidance.

On Sunday’s State of the Union show, CNN host Jake Tapper fed Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) softballs about the anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting as they mark the 10th anniversary of that horrible day. But earlier, Tapper asked Sen. Murphy if it was appropriate for President Biden to criticize the Supreme Court as “out of kilter” with public opinion. Murphy claimed Clarence Thomas is a grifter and Samuel Alito is “openly displaying affiliation with political causes in public.” As if Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t flaunt her politics in public?

NPR keeps obsessing over the Alitos and their use of flags around their homes. On Saturday, their show It’s Been a Minute obsessed over flags, and Republican threats to burn the gay “Pride” flag. NPR has obsessed far more over the Alito flags than they did over the assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. NPR never offered one feature on Nicholas Roske being arrested with weapons in Kavanaugh’s Maryland neighborhood.

Instead, NPR media reporter David Folkenflik is actively investigating a Rupert Murdoch-associated journalist taking the editorial reins of The Washington Post. Folkenflik, and allies like Brian Stelter and Margaret Sullivan, want Will Lewis purged before he can barely get started.
