The American people may be so immune to the ridiculous left-wing propaganda that networks like MSNBC and CNN churn out that they may be jaded by now. It may take a foreign press’s critique to wake people up about how absurd and unacceptable it all is.
That is what Australian news channel Sky News did in its coverage of President Biden’s first foreign trip as president to the G-7, NATO summit and meetings with leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin. The commentary is illustrative of how pathetic the U.S. press looks to the rest of the world right now. Watch:
“I want to go to the U.S. now,” the Sky News commentator Chris Kenny began, “Because the media has been gushing as their beloved Joe Biden for his trip to the United Kingdom to the G-7 summit. Listen to how CNN is reporting this ‘momentous’ event.’ [Shows clip.]
“They’re essentially calling it the G-6 when Trump’s there,” Kenny noted, “But Joe Biden’s there and it’s ‘momentous,’ and it’s positive, and it’s glowing. And they try to give the illusion he doesn’t have any disputes with these international leaders.”
“I just think Joe Biden is a lucky person,” Kenny’s guest Sophie Elsworth remarked. “He has all the media on his side. Or most of the media on his side. Particularly, CNN. Completely at odds with what they did to Trump. So, you know, his popularity surely can only win from this. Because he’s getting so much positive PR through the journalists who are massive fans of him. It’s really quite appalling to watch. And what happened to straight news reporting, which doesn’t seem to exist there?”
“Nick, it’s not really journalism, is it?” Kenny continued. “They are really stenographers in a way, aren’t they? They are documenting history, but they aren’t being critical. With Trump, ultra-critical. Inflammatory in some instances.”
“Always, always, Trump could do no right,” Nick Cater added. “And give Biden his due, he did get to the top of the Air Force One steps without tripping over his shoes.”
The segment continued to talk about the “considerable questions” about Joe Biden, questions that America’s failing journalists are not asking. The U.S. media has officially become an international laughingstock — much like Joe Biden.
