Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 05, 2021

Dana Milbank: After a honeymoon of slightly positive coverage in the first three months of the year, Biden's press for the past four months has been as bad as -- and for a time worse than -- the coverage Trump received for the same four months of 2020.

Yet, you don't see liberals constantly whining and complaining about the news coverage. Only the little conservative are so delicate that they have to lash out everytime their feelings get hurt because they feel like the media was unfair to their dear leader.

There is no such thing as liberal media.

That's just idiots who get upset when facts being reported make their cult look bad.

Major news corporations are own by extremely conservative people.

I've been saying this for months. As bad as Dotard treated the MSM they miss the easy coverage of the outrage of the day. They miss the clicks of people fear watching their country go down the crapper. Now the MSM is spending its time rehabilitating the traitors who worked with Dotard, like Chris Krispy Kreme, Kaylie McLiar and the rest. They should be covering the obstruction by GQP Senators of President Biden's picks for DOJ, State and other agencies, ALMOST a year into his Presidency and the GQP is still gumming up the works, and putting the country's safety at risk because they are petulant little POS. Liberals complain about AG Garland but he doesn't even have his full compliment of USAs yet BECAUSE OF GQP OBSTRUCTION! But of course that gets hardly any coverage. And we saw LOTS of supply chain doom and gloom your Xmas is going to suck because of the Biden Admin stories, but since the Biden Administration took bold moves, everything is moving much better, and the CEO of Walmart even gave the Biden Administration a shout out, but where is the coverage? Nada. The MSM is not far more friendly to the GQP than they as Democrats. Just look at the Sunday shows, GQP pols and talking heads get scheduled far more often (something three to one) than Dems, and that's been true since the second Bush Admin. Dems need a billionaire to sink money into a Liberal media infrastructure to compete with the Reichwing propaganda machine.

90% of the bad press Trump got was earned.

75% of the bad press Biden gets is contrived, often reporting of bulls&^% statements from GOP traitors whining about energy costs or bidenflation or other BS.

This is probably true.

OR It just shows you how poorly Biden is doing, that even the sycophants are having a hard time saying anything positive about him.

Which is more likely?

He could have handled all these situations better with a little planning. But this is what I expect from Senators, they just don't make good presidents, but I will admit Obama wasn't too bad but he wasn't in the Senate too long.

But its all trash anyhow, why would anyone watch or listen to MSM, other than to fulfill their cognitive biases.

It was clear. But figured I'd help.

I'm not really sure what the problem with Biden is other than he's not a Republican.

He's not giving huge wins to liberals and is mostly trying to help rebuild crumbling infrastructure.

Which. Republicans still seem upset about?

I remember a time when Republicans didn't use to want America to fail?

The parties disagreed and there were some wedge issues, but both parties were doing their best to build a better nation.

I don't see that from the people Republicans vote into office.

I see an attempt to rebuild the confederacy.

Biden was not my first choice. But honestly I think he's been pretty bold in trying to restore life to a nation that was in serious trouble- not just because of his nincompoop predecessor, but also because of Covid, long neglected infrastructure and inequity. This wasn't going to be an easy task for anybody.

Media comes after whoever is in charge.

In Trump's case, there was so much stupid it was just overwhelming. No President ever acted like that, and even after his term, is still acting like no one has ever acted.

He brings almost all of it on himself.

Just look at his double negative comment on Dec 4 about election fraud. That's an official press release. He's a total goof - that think he's the smartest guy in the room.

The media went wild with the kids in cages when Trump was president. Nonstop teeth gnashing and garment rending. On and on it went. Biden comes in, opens the border wide open making the facilities problem exponentially worse and it got a fraction of the coverage. This administration went so far as to deny press access to these facilities and barely any howls of protest. A hack like Milbank has a graph that actually seriously disproves his point but he has that blip where in the first year the Afghanistan debacle, suicide bombing and botched drone strike resulted in a blip of really bad coverage. Nothing in Trump's first year even came close yet the media was outraged over his crowd size boasts.

Rightwing media treats Biden worse than Trump. No question. Mainstream media has treated Biden with skepticism and an eagle eye on factual truthfulness. After suffering through 4 years of lies with Trump, many in the media are determined to try and do better.

Let's face it. Trump was probably the most dishonest and destructive leader in our nation's history. It is no surprise that in his horrific aftermath everyone is looking for ways to do things better.

Biden slipped below Trump for approximately 6 weeks earlier this year compared to the same time last year. The rest of the year Trump was worse...much worse most of the time.

most recently it's been worse for Biden.

I can accept all of that. But keep in mind the story isn't alleging that Biden has been treated worse the entire time.

Care to acknowledge Trump's policy change was to take kids away from their parents and put the kids in cages with litte regard for how to reunite them, whereas Obama's policy was to keep families caged together?

I'm sure you're not so dumb you don't know that important difference.

So why are you claiming that's not the reason for the difference in coverage? It's because you're disingenuous.

That's because when you make 1 blunder - like the messy withdrawl from the mideast - the press can beat you up for it.

What did Rubio mean? What evidence did he have? I don't see you quoting that, only the accusation. Why is that?

Look I get Trump is a tool, a huge liar and embellishes to the tilt.

But defending the governmental, and media malfeasance brought against him is an absurdly hill to die on, let them die the death they deserve. The evidence is overwhelming that Schiff was lying, but the media and it would appear many here took that anchor while trying to tread water; the result is obvious, defend MyTribe BS.

The abuse by the FBI and DOJ should frighten any lefty, only reichwingers support what the government and media did in this situation.

It's really weird. I can't stand Trump because of how he conducts himself. He's an attention-seeking narcissist. Crude, smarmy likely an abuser of women. Having said that, he did get some things right on policy. I didn't vote for him because he's unfit for the reasons I described. I mostly vote Libertarian although I have voted for a couple of Republicans. I guess if I don't vote straight Democrat that somehow makes me an "enabler", whatever the hell that's supposed to mean. Politicians mostly suck and I've found that I'm usually voting for the lesser of two evils, particularly given that I vote based on the whole and not a single issue.
