Biden: How Dare You Ask a Question?

Biden again chastises a CBS reporter for acting like a journalist.

You may recall (of course you do) that in the two weeks prior to the 2020 election there was a massive Leftmedia and social media blackout of emerging evidence exposing Joe Biden’s ChiCom criminal enterprise — evidence tying Biden directly to a pay-to-play scheme to market his influence to Red China in return for millions of dollars.

To put this corruption blackout into perspective, this would be tantamount to The Washington Post covering up Watergate. WaPo buried the Biden/ChiCom story deep. Indeed, according to the paper’s motto, “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

There was one lone journalist in that sea of darkness who dared ask the “Big Guy” about the corrupt scheme, while other reporters were busy asking Biden about his favorite flavor of ice cream.

CBS News reporter Bo Erickson asked Biden, “What is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?” Biden tersely replied: “I know you’d ask it. I have no response. It’s another smear campaign, right up your alley. Those are the questions you always ask.” For the record, CBS is not a “conservative” media outlet, and actually “those are the questions” real journalists should be asking. But then Biden went into hiding and Hunter Biden disappeared.

Triggering Biden’s infuriation again, on Friday Erickson dared ask him another challenging question, this time about his Covid19 plans: “Mr. Biden, the COVID task force said it’s safe for students to be in class. Are you going to encourage unions to cooperate more to bring kids back to classrooms, sir?”

Instead of answering the question, Biden responded, “Why are you the only guy that always shouts out questions?” Erickson was then escorted out of the room by Biden’s staff.

For the record, Donald Trump has been asked nothing but loaded hit questions by the White House press corps over the last four years, questions propagating the Democrat Party agenda.

Conversely, there has been a dearth of serious questions asked of Biden by any reporter over the last six months, and one would be hard-pressed to find any questions asked of Kamala Harris, who has yet to hold a press conference since being tapped by Biden in August.

Joe Concha, the seasoned media reporter for The Hill, calls the Biden-Harris press corps the “marshmallow media,” saying that the top three words to describe questions asked of Biden are “Choreographed. Hospitable. Risk-averse.”

Concha notes, “Any press conference Biden has held since capturing the Democratic nomination has consisted mostly of questions about President Trump and very few questions about Biden’s own worldview, record, policy stances or perspective on important issues such as trade, foreign affairs, gun control, immigration, education, or taxation as it relates to repealing the Trump tax cuts.” He concludes: “If you think anything will change after January 20, think again. We saw it throughout the campaign. We see it now in the transition. And we’ll see it in a Biden administration — a carefully choreographed, risk-averse and packaged president who will provide a fraction of the access that Trump has.”
