CNN’s Brian Stelter is in panic mode over the media accurately reporting Joe Biden’s racist and bumbling remarks.
Today, during a segment with a group of panelists, Stelter asked Errin Haines, editor of “The 19th,” about what he perceives to be the unfair treatment of Joe Biden by the media.
Stelter asked Haines, “When you see entire media companies essentially exist to tear down Joe Biden, is there an equivalent of that on the Left, tearing down Trump?”
Haines replied, “There really isn’t.” adding, “It’s really a diet of this type of information that a lot of these voters are getting. When I interview them, I do hear them saying a lot of the talking points that sound very familiar from some of these shows which I try to listen to when I’m out on the campaign trail. You can hear thee comments being echoed.” she said. Haines blamed AM radio and the Trump campaign’s social media campaign.

Stelter was likely referring to this comment from Joe Biden that was first exposed on social media, and later, reluctantly covered by media outlets: “What you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community.”
Of course, Stelter’s claim of media bias against Joe Biden is not only ludicrous, it’s laughable.
In November 2019, MRC analysts reviewed all coverage of President Trump and his administration on the ABC, CBS, and NBC evening newscasts since 2017. Out of 684 evaluative comments, a whopping 96 percent have been negative, vs. a meager four percent that has been positive.
The media bias against Trump is not the only mountain he and his supporters have to climb leading up to the 2020 election.
Facebook and Twitter have been in a war against Trump and his supporters since he became President in November 2016.
Last week, Twitter and Facebook banned the Trump campaign from posting on their platforms.
CBN – President Trump and his campaign were targeted and censored by Twitter and Facebook for posting a quote that kids are “virtually immune” from COVID.
The Trump campaign’s Twitter account first shared the video, which was re-posted to the president’s personal Facebook page.
CBN News Medical Reporter Lorie Johnson said on Thursday’s broadcast of The 700 Club it’s clear that what Trump meant was that children are not nearly as susceptible and don’t usually contract severe cases like adults, not that they’re literally “immune”.
Still, Twitter temporarily blocked the entire account until it removed the video. And Facebook removed the post.
Both companies say the president’s statement violated policies on sharing “harmful COVID misinformation.” The president’s campaign calls the removals another display of bias.
