Is Fashionable Media Extra Biased Than Earlier than?

Many polls support the view that what is considered contemporary journalism is more biased and even more propagandistic than it was in earlier times. One of the definitions of “journalism” on will confirm this attitude for many: “Writing that reflects superficial thinking and research, a popular bias and hasty composition …”

In fact, journalism has been biased and sensational from the start. In his book, Infamous Scribblers, Eric Burns suggests that colonial journalism often makes today’s tabloids look like real news. Your tagline could be “all the inappropriate news we print”.

The newspapers of the time published unconfirmed scandals and statements by rival politicians that would now be considered defamatory or even defamatory.

George Washington coined the term Burns, which was used for his book title. The summary on reads: “Journalism of the era was often partisan, contrived, overheated, scandalous, sensational and sometimes moving, brilliant and indispensable. Despite its shortcomings – even because of some of them – the attendees have hashed to bring the topics out publicly that would get America to declare independence and determine what kind of nation it would be after the war. “

Fast forward to 1920. Warren Harding is elected President. To begin with, the press that is pouring over Harding could be compared to what today’s media are saying about President Joe Biden.

As Leesa Donner recalls on, “Historian David Pietrusza’s compelling book ‘1920: The Year of Six Presidents’ offers a ‘dazzling panorama of the President’s personalities, ambitions, actions and counter-actions’, but in the end it was the one least offensive man who won. To say the media was in love with Warren Harding is putting it mildly … Pietrusza quotes Washington journalist Edward G. Lowry, whom he describes as “often bitter,” and Harding so represents: “Kindness and friendliness … radiates quite a bit from him. He gives even the least sensitive people a sense of brotherhood and innate goodwill towards those around them. ‘The American writer Irvin S. Cobb enthused: “I think I have never met a gentler man, or a man with better impulses, or one with more generous and gracious opinions of others.”

After his death in 1923, the Teapot Dome scandal and extramarital affair came to light that obliterated Harding’s press-created virgin political image.

That brings me to the media “reporting” on Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Conservative website NewsBusters has compiled a few examples that make the raptures of Harding and other politicians (JFK and Barack Obama) mild.

On January 20th, New York Times editor Lauren Wolfe tweeted, “Biden is landing at Joint Base Andrews. I have the chills.” This is reminiscent of former MSNBC presenter Chris Matthews, who said after an Obama speech that he “felt that thrill in my leg”.

CNN Political Director David Chalian: “Those lights that are just going out from the Lincoln Memorial along the reflective pool are almost an extension of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America. It was a moment when the new president walked into town came and the kind convened land at that moment of memory, his arms outstretched. “

Major Garrett of CBS News compared Biden’s inaugural address to that of a priest: “The beginning had high-flying rhetoric. A little bit at the end. In the middle it sounded like a sermon. … But like a priest explaining something from the Bible or something. ‘I’ll break it down for you so we can all have a common language and understanding.’ “

Please hand over the communion waffle.

Former Clinton adviser and co-host of ABC News, George Stephanopoulos, said Biden’s speech had “echoes of Abe Lincoln.” “Really?”

There is much more and more is to come. Some of these individuals should be recognized by the SPCA for their role as lap dogs for Biden.
