Last night’s CNN drive-in town hall with Joe Biden featured examples of proper social distancing (except for during commercial breaks). Also on full display were plenty of softball questions with none of the real-time “fact checking” CNN has a fondness for when President Trump speaks.
It was such a softball-fest that, as Ari Fleischer noticed, even Politico noticed, saying CNN (and participants with questions) gave Biden a “hero’s welcome” in Scranton, which was “more like an affable reunion of old acquaintances”:
When Politico accuses CNN of a softball Interview, you know there’s a problem.
This man might become POTUS, yet still, too many reporters think their role is to help make that happen instead of asking hard Qs.
The media is broken. https://t.co/VOUUJ0KR8D

Media Bias on full display: On Tuesday, voters got in Trump's face for the first time. On Thursday, they practically gave Biden a hero's welcome in Scranton, Pa. https://t.co/yQM9k5LyPV

Anderson Cooper looked like he was in physical pain while watching Biden babble nonsense and trying desperately to look like he took Biden seriously.

I have been saying this consistently….CNN is a media arm of DNC.
They are the most politically biased media organisation in USA. https://t.co/ofWjmE3nX0

And Team Biden knows that, which is obviously why they agreed to do the town hall.
