How Biden Is Driving The Right And The Media Insane (And America Loves It)
March 19, 2021 by Oliver Willis

Despite knowing better after four years of Trump, the right and the press have fallen right back into their comfortable patterns. The right makes up a fake controversy that they pound every hour on Fox News and Twitter, while the media peppers the Democratic administration with questions about the made-up outrage that sound as if they were dreamed up by the RNCís Ronna McDaniel and her team.

Thus far, Biden is not falling for the bait.

Thus far, Bidenís response has largely been indifference to the fake controversy machine. He and Vice President Kamala Harris havenít spent the early days of the presidency trying to put out phony fires, seeking to appease a conservative/Republican beast whose only goal is the destruction of liberalism.

Biden has kept his head down, setting realistic expectations after years of grandiose promises the press repeatedly fell for but were never delivered upon.

The dissatisfaction from the right and the press is palpable. Biden isnít jumping when they collectively demand he do so. He is not playing by the approved rules, where the right and the media set the agenda and the Democrats careen from crisis to crisis.

The public has largely been ignoring the media-conservative whining and instead has been looking at Bidenís actions. Biden is ignoring the peanut gallery and skating above the chattering.

Together Biden and the public are leaving the right and the press in the dust, and the country is better off for it. Hopefully it persists.

1. After four years of Trump bellowing "fake media," a lot of people are ignoring their reporting.

2. How can we not

Ignore them? A good share of cable is just regurgitated gossip and clips that are supposed to outrage us over and over.

Oh, they give some real news in between but by the time they do most have moved on.
