This article updates last week’s “Fox News Obsesses Over Biden Press Conferences – That They Refuse to Air.” Since then Fox News has made it a daily practice to count the days until Joe Biden holds a formal press conference. They already know that one will be held before the end of March, yet they continue to harp on the matter.
Fox News relentlessly aired every public utterance by Donald Trump for five years. His tediously repetitive cult rallies were staples of Fox’s programming. His Coronavirus Task Force briefings got live coverage, but only when he emceed them. His staged photo-ops, bill signings, and lie-riddled “chopper talks” consumed hours of Fox airtime. And it didn’t matter to Fox that Trump spent most of his press avails flagrantly lying and insulting the reporters.
However, now that Joe Biden is residing in the White House, Fox News has adopted an entirely different editorial approach to covering the President of the United States. While Biden hasn’t held a formal news conference, he has taken questions on numerous occasions addressing a diverse array of subjects including the COVID-19 pandemic, racial equity, climate change, healthcare, and immigration. But to date Fox News has not aired a single White House press briefing, which the Biden team has returned to doing daily.
On Thursday Fox News celebrated what they called a “milestone.” The historical landmark their “reporters” allegedly uncovered was that “Biden hits 50-day milestone of going without a formal news conference as president.” The truth is that Fox News hit a 50 day milestone of not covering Biden’s press events. What’s more, we know that when Biden does hold a press conference, Fox will be covering the “canceling” of a Muppet, or a sleazy pillow huckster, or some other ridiculous, politically partisan, culture war demagoguery instead.
Fox’s obsessive whining about Biden’s press schedule highlighted what they considered to be a critical point. “The report,” Fox News said, “also drew attention to aides who yell at reporters to leave when Biden finishes his comments, drawing criticism that Biden appears to need protection from probing questions.” That, of course is something that Trump’s press aides would never do…
“Press! Make your way out! Let’s go! Move, Jim!”
