PEOPLE Journal Gushes Over Biden-Harris with Eight-Web page ‘Time to Unite’ Cowl Story

The November 23rd issue of this DNC pamphlet known as People magazine published a triumphant eight-page Biden-Harris cover story that said:


“It is time for America to unite.”

The next president and vice president of history promise healing – and get to work right away. “There’s nothing we can’t do when we do it together.”

Inside the headline read:

It’s time to come together: a divided nation ravaged by a pandemic emerged in historical numbers to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. “Let’s give each other a chance,” Biden said of the millions who were seeking a second term for President Trump. “We are not enemies, we are Americans.”

Next to the first few words of the article was a quote from Harris: America “chose hope, unity, decency, science – and yes, truth.” That doesn’t sound like a “single talk”, does it?

People’s reporter Sandra Sobieraj Westfall proved to be a reliable Biden repeater by starting and ending this chronicle with delicate stories about deceased Bidens. It began in large letters:

His decades-long search for the White House was finally fulfilled. But when Joe Biden prepared to address the nation on November 7th, he thought less of victory than loss – the common purpose lost in this bitterly divided America and the losses of its own darkest times.

It went on:

The lyrics to “On Eagle’s Wings,” a favorite anthem sung in 2015 at the funeral of his son Beau, who died of brain cancer at the age of 46, were repeated to the former Vice President in the five days he stayed with him returned Delaware home to see the voting results return as his grandchildren buzzed around him. “After Beau died, it was difficult for him to listen [that hymn]”says close friend Ted Kaufman.

Now, as Biden added his words to his first words as president-elect – “He will raise you up … make you shine like the sun” – he wanted to lead Americans on the first step towards healing. “Joe standing on this stage reciting this hymn proves that you can come back from the worst,” says Kaufman. “When it comes to healing for the land, he knows it is possible.”

They repeat the story with a picture of Joe and Beau and a long caption on the last page of the story where Beau says, “You have to promise me, Dad, you’ll be fine no matter what.” “And Westfall leaves back to the violins:

Throughout all of this, Biden relies on what he has learned about healing – not just from Beau’s death, but since the December day of 1972 when his wife Neilia and young daughter Naomi were killed in a car accident in which his boys Beau and Hunter landed the hospital.

“To have experienced almost unimaginable losses and failures [in his earlier presidential campaigns]Joe Biden knows humility and resilience, “says historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, who now sees a little of Teddy Roosevelt’s gift in the President-elect of helping people from all corners of the world” feel the common American citizenship “and the FDR’s ability during the World War II, gathering Americans to “accept brutal reality”.

It is natural to think of lost loved ones at major turning points in your life. But with the Bidens, this has happened so often in 2020 (as it did at Congress) that it sounds like strategic messaging.
