Try harder: Fox News obsesses over imaginary Biden “press conference” scandal

President Biden has been in office for less than two months and already he’s poised to sign into law a $1.9 trillion relief bill that will drastically improve the lives of vast swathes of the American public. One analysis found that the pandemic relief package will reduce poverty for Black people by 42%, Hispanic people by 39%, and white people by 34%. For many, it will be nothing less than life-changing and stands as a potent reminder that elections have serious consequences for the everyday lives of normal people. If Donald Trump were still in power we would be getting pittances if anything at all.

The bill is overwhelmingly popular which leaves conservative media in a tough position. Fox News has tried whining about the bill but their attacks have proven entirely toothless since it’s difficult to convincingly knock a relief bill in the midst of a deadly pandemic. Instead, they’ve been forced to engage in inane culture war issues like Mr. Potato Head going gender-neutral and certain Dr. Seuss books going out of print. They’re starving for content which explains why their latest pathetic strategy is to complain that Biden has yet to give a formal press conference as president.

Their big story this morning was that Biden “has gone fifty days” without a press conference. You’ll recall that President Trump eventually abandoned giving press conferences altogether, preferring to let his lackeys defend the mountain of lies his White House shoveled out on a daily basis. At the time Fox seemed to have no problem with the president not giving press conferences but now they want us to believe that it’s an earth-shattering scandal. If it didn’t matter then, it doesn’t matter now.

Add your name to call on prosecutors to ARREST DONALD TRUMP for his crimes!

Beyond the blatant hypocrisy, the commentary itself is utter tripe. Biden hasn’t given a press conference because his Press Secretary Jen Psaki is more than capable of handling the less-than-pressing questions currently being leveled at the White House. Meanwhile, Biden has been actually getting the work of the American people done—something Trump never even attempted to do—and the looming passage of this relief bill proves that. He’ll hold a press conference when there is good reason to hold one. Until then Fox News will just have to continue throwing their little fits.
