While Joe Biden was being pressed on which flavor of milkshake he’d ordered before going into a 72-hour hibernation from the press to prepare for Thursday’s debate, reporters were asking President Trump why he keeps calling Biden a criminal. Not surprisingly, Trump not only gave the best possible answer — because he is one — but then tacked on a little something extra for the press, calling them criminals for not reporting it.
REPORTER: Why do you keep calling Joe Biden a criminal?
TRUMP: "He is a criminal. He got caught. Read his laptop. And do you know who’s a criminal? You’re a criminal for not reporting it."pic.twitter.com/6UKMGICSQ3

Burying stories simply because they may hurt the candidate you like is journalistic malpractice. Social media censoring posts that reflect poorly on their candidate of choice but allowing similar or even less credible stories about the other candidate is frightening

Did reporters ask trump what kind of ice cream he likes or don’t they care?

They’ve already driven the “two scoops” scandal into the ground.
Joe Biden wants to ‘finish strong’ after his campaign calls a 72-hour press lid, so looks like it’s up to the media to do the heavy lifting https://t.co/bHH0Jnbz5U
