Joe Biden had a press conference yesterday, and as we’ve seen in the past, it featured so-called “reporters” doing little but teeing up softballs.
At one point Biden was asked if he’d reached out to Mitch McConnell about a coronavirus relief package, and you’ll notice that he dodged instead of answering the question:
President-elect Biden is asked if he's reached out to Mitch McConnell to discuss COVID relief negotiations

Biden not answering the question left NBC News’ Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt quite impressed by his inability to tell a lie, or something:
Joe Biden wouldn’t say if he’s talked to Mitch McConnell
I’m just struck by the reality that we’ll now have a president who, as a rule, doesn’t lie, even when it might be easier

So “journalism” has come to this?
Imagine being a journalist and praising a politician for refusing to answer a basic question. https://t.co/K3DIsHWtHp

Politician refuses to answer journalist’s question. Journalist melts in admiration. And they wonder why confidence in the press down to all-time lows. https://t.co/mI0lOhJqg1

What’s disgusting is the media doesn’t understand why so many people think they’re beyond biased and dishonest:
An NBC reporter is praising Joe Biden for not answering a pretty straight forward question. Our media is broken and useless. https://t.co/3ZfrKywxek

"Reporter" lauding powerful person for ignoring question. Another of J-School's finest!

I'm just struck by your ability to type this while kneeling at an altar.

Dude, you may like Biden but NO ONE in Washington would say he isn’t a liar. Why did he drop out this first time he ran for President?
