CNN’s Fareed Zakaria pointed out that many of Joe Biden’s successes should have elicited good poll numbers. Journalist Amy Walter’s response was lacking in that it failed to point out the media’s dereliction of duty.
Fareed Zakaria made the point
Fareed Zakaria asked the right question.
“Biden is a genial guy,” Fareed Zakaria said. “He’s pretty mainstream, and he has passed two very large pieces of legislation and a trillion-dollar infrastructure bill. We’ve been waiting for 20-odd-years for this. The COVID relief Bill and when you poll most of the key aspects of those bills, they’re pretty popular. So to me, at least this does present something of a puzzle?”
Journalist Amy Walter, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of Cook Political Report with Amy Walter, responded as if the mainstream media exist in an observation bubble.
“I think you have to go into the mindset now for just a traditional regular voter who is somebody who’s not spending a whole lot of time following politics, thinking about politics,” Amy Walter said. “They pretty much have a low opinion anyway of Washington and people who work in Washington. What they’re looking for is what’s going on right now in my own life and how are people whose job it is to be public servants, how are they making it better or worse.”
Amy failed to note that it is their job to ensure that busy and preoccupied Americans have accurate information. The negative thoughts about politics are directly proportional to the mainstream media’s dereliction of duty and the Right-Wing media’s concerted effort to lie to Americans.
If the media reported accurately, there are many absolute truths that Americans would know.
- The supply chain problem is the fault of corporate greed, the private sector. After all, they instituted just-in-time-inventory (JITI) which means that shipping or pandemic disruptions immediately cause local shortages.
- The corporatocracy in their shortsightedness and greed decided to manufacture overseas with little possibility of ramping up quickly in the U.S. when it becomes necessary. They offshored jobs as they reduced the income of Americans.
- Corporate greed along with their purchased politicians have not released their patents to allow manufacture of vaccines at scale to save lives. This prolongs the pandemic and allows the possibility of deadly COVID mutants.
It is ironic how those most responsible for America’s problems continue to use their platform to mislead. Joe Biden is not perfect. But those who attack him in the media and politicians are the actual culprits. They are the ones that prevent progress.
