A significant change in the tone of the press coverage of the incumbent U.S. president apparently indicates that the political and media establishment has decided that it’s time for Joe Biden to go.
“The Democratic Party and its media wing have decided to jettison Joe Biden,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed in his opening monologue Tuesday evening, attributing this scenario to what he described as the liberal hive mind.
Otherwise pro-Biden news outlets, for example, are suddenly no longer accepting the premise that America’s economic woes are the result of the so-called Putin price hike instead of Bidenflation, Carlson suggested.
In the editorial that contains a lot to unpack, and is embedded here in two parts, Carlson insisted that the Democrats installed Biden as their standard-bearer by default only because they were afraid that Bernie Sanders, if he got the nomination, would upend their relationship with the big-money donors on Wall Street.
Carlson played some soundbites of triumphant corporate media pundits later repetitively proclaiming, in what seemed to be a coordinated talking point, that with the Biden inauguration, the “adults” were back in charge of the White House.
“These people. Never an original thought among them. ‘He’s an adult. It’s glorious.’ Well, half true. Biden is certainly an adult. He’ll be 80 this fall, but no one in Washington thinks the Biden presidency is glorious anymore. They think it’s a disaster. Polls show that voters strongly agree. Joe Biden is now the most unpopular person in virtually any room he enters,” Carlson asserted.
The Fox News host then showed footage of a forlorn Biden seeming to be completely ignored (“shunned in his own house”) during a White House meet and greet while attendees gathered around Barack Obama like he was a rock star.
“Obama no longer has to pretend…He can tell the world in the clearest possible terms that he has no respect for Joe Biden because, at this point, nobody has respect for Joe Biden. Even Biden’s most faithful supporters in the press corps have turned on him,” Carlson said.
Carlson went to mention, as alluded to above, with additional sound bites, how “liberal toadies” in the media have acknowledged that America doesn’t accept the Biden administration spin that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin is responsible for an array of domestic problems, including soaring gas prices.
“Wait a second. Correction: Breaking news. It looks like inflation is real. It’s not transitory. It’s actually making us poorer. Crime and disorder in the cities are real, too. And guess what? It looks like a totally pointless war with Russia is not as popular as we thought it was. You’re not a traitor for not wanting it. All of a sudden, they’re admitting all of this. For months, Biden’s been telling us that every bad thing you notice around you is, of course, Vladimir Putin’s fault, and the media have backed him up, but suddenly they aren’t backing him up anymore,” Carlson explained.
Even AOC is bailing on Joe Biden, Carlson noted.
“So Sandy’s out; that means everyone is out,” he said, referring to progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“What you’re watching here, as always, is the hive mind at work. Democrats have the same reactions because they have the same instincts, ‘Biden is weak, we must get rid of him.’

“Individuals are irrelevant to the [Democrat] party. The group is all that matters. No one at the DNC actually cares about Joe Biden or ever has, or for that matter, cares about George Floyd or Greta Thunberg or David Hogg or anyone else they tell you is an irreplaceable hero. All people are expendable. What matters is the party, and the party matters because in numbers, there is power,” he added.
“Biden can’t lead, therefore, at some point soon, he won’t be allowed to lead,” Carlson predicted.
With VP Kamala Harris as unpopular, or even more so, than Biden, Carlson ended his oration with some mystery.
“So they’ve decided to replace Joe Biden, period, but how will they do it, and who will they replace him with? That’s what we don’t know,” he said.
To punctuate the commentary, Newsweek editor Batya Ungar-Sargon joined the discussion to opine that Biden was supposed to “paper over” the class divide or gap between liberal elitists and middle-class/working-class America. “What’s happened is he’s come to embody it. And they’re distancing themselves from him to hide from their own failures,” she said.
Carlson began his soliloquy by recalling “just three years ago that Joe Biden was considered too decrepit, too corrupt, too out-of-touch ever to be president. And that wasn’t just the view from the right, by the way. They mostly stayed out of it. That’s what faithful Democrats were saying. “
