It is common knowledge that the establishment media is financially supported by the Democrats. This new Biden campaign revelation, however, elevates the situation to an entirely new level.
A development that may cause the majority of Americans to question their location in the United States and instead consider North Korea has surfaced: information has surfaced that the Biden administration is conducting press coaching sessions during which political commentators and reporters are being corrected on “what they’re getting wrong.”
Two sources told the news website 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.”
“They’re also using it as an opportunity to tell them what they’re getting wrong,” according to the source.
Additionally, it has been reported that Biden campaign staffers “[are] scheduled to meet in the coming days with political reporting teams from ABC, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, Fox, NPR, Reuters, Bloomberg, and others in Wilmington.”
Semafor asserts that these press conferences with key Biden campaign personnel, including his “campaign manager, deputies, and other high-ranking advisors,” were “off-the-record,” implying that the plebeians were not authorized to be informed of them.
However, it appears that the consultation with The New York Times was less than fruitful. (Perhaps the journalists employed by one of the nation’s most prestigious publications did not appreciate being instructed on how to perform their duties.)
Imagine being a journalist and politely accepting the campaign's critical "coverage spreadsheets" https://t.co/EYTQ1W4RJp

Users on X immediately began ridiculing the administration for instituting such a preposterous strategy after word of this information began to circulate.
President Joe Biden’s apparent source of frustration, as reported by Fox News, appears to be the disparity in coverage he receives when compared to former President Donald Trump.
As initially documented in Semafor, “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.”
More on this story via The Western Journal:
As reported in Fox News, the White House also expressed frustration this past December regarding coverage of the economy and was further frustrated by the reporting of Biden’s negative over his more positive poll results.
As ridiculous as the scenario of career politicians and campaign staffers dictating to the press on how they should cover the president’s campaign is, it is indicative of something more sinister at work in the intersection of the media and the government. CONTINUE READING…
