Yet  another rock bottom moment for NYT, with another desperate hack (Katie Rogers) getting bailed out by the loathsome Peter Baker and her extremist pals like Olivia Nuzzi. More wagon circling and far right framing at every turn, and a headline that has changed more times than Maggie has checked to see if Ivanka has answered her texts.

This doesn't quite get to the bit about how Axios works hand in hand with these outfits bc it ultimately sympathizes with conservatives and comes from a breed of journos who were raised and reared in conservative think-tanks, but it's a good takedown.

The public response to Biden's speech and initiatives has been majority positive, as has much of the media. But only so far. Corporate media value aggression and bold moves from conservative politicians because they have been conditioned to view Republicans as the stern father-leaders of the true America, and Democrats and progressives/liberals the effete cosmopolitan usurpers whose identifying marks they must constantly strive to shed themselves, by overcorrecting through bad faith critique and false equivalencies.

When Democrats make aggressive moves like these, they are attacked relentlessly. That's what you saw on Afghanistan withdrawal, that's what you're seeing from folks like Jake Tapper and WH Press Corps doyenne Zeke Miller, and that's why they persistently demanded (via interrogating the question) Biden promise not to pack the Supreme Court during last year's campaign - which he didn't do.

You can expect much more of this if he continues.

Remember to use archive.is for paywalled articles like the above (and always remove the dangling twitter linkage from the end of the main URL when copying and pasting it in).
