Even Liberal Media Confirms: Biden The LEAST Scrutinized Candidate EVER

A new report from Axios shows just how the media “obsession” with President Trump is allowing Joe Biden to escape serious scrutiny.

“The media’s obsession with Trump — and Trump’s compulsion to dominate the news — allowed Biden to purposely and persistently minimize public appearances and tough questions,” they write.

The Democrat nominee, as a result, has faced the least amount of media scrutiny of any presidential candidate in modern history.

Axios describes Biden as “a prohibitive favorite” to win the election and a man “who got there with lots of luck and shockingly little scrutiny.”

 

Media Obsessed With Trump, Ignore Biden

The Axios report goes on to provide statistics which seem to demonstrate that not only is the media running away from scrutinizing him, but he is running away from them as well.

According to numbers provided by the Trump campaign and which “the Biden campaign didn’t dispute,” the President, since the end of August, has fielded 753 questions from the media.

Biden, by comparison, has answered just 365.

They also report that the former Vice President “went almost three months without taking questions from beat reporters.”

Perhaps that is why Biden has been able to avoid answering questions on court-packing, can say he supports fracking after repeatedly saying he’d ban it, and is able to distance himself from the Green New Deal even though it’s touted on his campaign website.

Imagine the collective outcry if President Trump ever said voters don’t deserve to know his stance or if he flip-flopped on something.

 

Does the Media Side With Biden and the Democrats?

To be sure, the Axios report does suggest that President Trump himself is partially to blame for the slanted media coverage.

“Trump continued to light himself on fire, bombed the first debate, then got the coronavirus,” they write. “He balked at a virtual debate, giving Biden another offramp.”

 

“Biden has been the least-scrutinized presidential candidate in modern history at great disservice to the voters, but the press still has time to rectify that,” Trump campaign spokesperson Andrew Clark told Axios.

Will that happen? It seems highly unlikely.

In October of 2016, the Center for Public Integrity reported that journalists were “shower(ing) Hillary Clinton with campaign cash.”

 

“People identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television anchors – as well as other donors known to be working in journalism – have combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Clinton and Trump,” they wrote.

“More than 96 percent of that cash has benefited Clinton.”

The bulk of these journalists are now likely covering the 2020 campaign.
