• Embarrassing: Lapdog Biden Journalists Debase Their Profession in Latest Presser

    From Ubiquitous@weberm@polaris.net to alt.tv.pol-incorrect,alt.fan.rush-limbaugh,alt.politics.media,alt.politics.usa,alt.journalism.criticism on Fri Nov 20 21:05:02 2020

    If anyone was hoping the third time would be the charm for consistently constructive or tough questions at a post-election Joe Biden press
    conference, Thursday illustrated that such a hope was a fools errand.
    Over the course of the 15-minute availability, the Biden team had the
    former vice president receive questions from only four reporters with
    three of them offering softballs.

    ABC senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce continued her
    accumulation of quite a highlight reel if she ever wanted to join the
    Biden administration, wondering to Biden in the first of two questions:
    _How many lives do you think are at risk here if this transition
    remains stalled?_

    Her second and third questions werent any better (click expand):

    BRUCE: And when you take a step back and look at the way the
    President is handling this, his refusal to concede, what do
    you think is really going on here? In your view, Mr.
    President-Elect, what do you think the President is doing?
    What are Americans witnessing here?

    BIDEN: Let me choose my words. I think they're witnessing
    incredible irresponsibility, incredibly damaging messages
    being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy
    functions, and I think it is well, I don't know his motive,
    but I just think it's totally irresponsible.

    BRUCE: Are you concerned he may succeed, that people may
    question the legitimacy of your administration?

    Taking the place of Mike Memoli from the first presser and Geoff
    Bennett in the second, NBCs Kristen Welker represented the Comcast
    network and started by yukking it up with Biden about how it was nice
    to see you in-person.

    Predictably, it was a precursor to her softball: You have said that
    lives could be lost if you don't start getting briefings from the Trump administration and now here we are, more than 250,000 lives could be
    lost. Given that, how do you justify not taking legal action to get the briefings that you say are critical, that you say you need?

    After asking a follow-up lamenting about Biden not us[ing] every tool
    in your toolbox to get the transition going, Welker asked two more
    about possible legal action against the General Services Administration
    (GSA) to begin a formal presidential transition.

    Welker then used the remainder of her time to press Biden on another
    set of lockdowns to curb the spread of the coronavirus (click
    expand):

    WELKER: Okay. And given the death toll now, more than 250,000
    Americans who have now lost their lives, you have said that
    you would support a nationwide shutdown if scientists
    recommended it.

    BIDEN: No. Let no.

    WELKER: You've spoken to scientists now

    BIDEN: I know. Everybody asks that question every single time
    I stand here. It was a hypothetical question. The answer was,
    I would follow the science. I am not going to shut down the
    economy, period. I'm going to shut down the virus. That's what
    I'm going to shut down.

    WELKER: So that's ruled out?

    BIDEN: I'll say again, no national shutdown. No national
    shutdown, because every region, every area, every community
    is can be different.

    MSNBC contributor and PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor was also
    there, so Bruce had quite the competition for who could suck up the
    most to the new administration.

    In her first question, Alcindor wondered what he made of the Trump
    campaigns actions in Michigan and used that to wonder about his
    message to new Americans: And what did you say to Americans,
    especially immigrant Americans who came to the United States, looking
    for political stability and are seeing all the things that the
    President is doing?

    Alcindor had a follow-up about whether hes rethink[ing] his
    strategy and moving toward forcing the GSAs hand, but then asked
    this of Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA):

    [Y]ou talked about your state your state experience. My
    question is, is there anything you heard from governors today
    that made you specifically concerned about vulnerable
    populations, especially as I talk to Americans who say I don't
    have the privilege to work from home? I don't have the
    privilege to social distance if I'm living in a house with
    multigenerations. Are you are you did you hear anything
    that concerns you specifically? And what can we do for them
    as a country?

    Eye roll.

    As for the reporter that chose not to be a Biden sycophant, Bloombergs
    Justin Sink asked Biden about the outlines of a coronavirus relief
    package, who would be his Treasury secretary, sanctions against China,
    and the state of the U.S. dollar.

    In this day and age, what a lonely job it must be for journalist who
    actually ask real questions of Democrats.

    MSNBCs coverage of the Biden press conference was made possible by advertisers such as Netflix and Sling TV. CNN did not have ads during
    its 4:00 p.m. Eastern hour, but follow the links on the MSNBC ads to
    the MRCs Conservatives Fight Back page.

    Joe Biden Press Conference
    November 19, 2020
    4:22 p.m. Eastern

    JUSTIN SINK: I know you mentioned the economic impact and talked a bit
    about the relief package you wanted. But I was wondering if we could
    talk about things that you will be able to do as president or what will
    sort govern your decision in terms of the economy. So I was wondering
    if I could ask, what kind of framework are you thinking about as you
    decide about a treasury secretary going forward, whether you would
    consider you had said during the debates that you wanted to punish
    China over the way that they've been acting, whether that could include economic sanctions or tariffs with China. And, finally, do you think a
    strong dollar helps or hurts the U.S. as we're grappling with historic unemployment?

    4:24 p.m. Eastern

    JOE BIDEN: And what was your third question?

    SINK: It was about the dollar, sir, whether you think a strong dollar
    will help or hurt with unemployment or generally just how you would
    like the federal reserve to sort of approach the pandemic?

    4:26 p.m. Eastern

    MARY BRUCE: You have said that if this transition doesn't get going, especially coordination on vaccine distribution, that lives will be
    lost. How many lives do you think are at risk here if this transition
    remains stalled?

    4:26 p.m. Eastern

    BRUCE: And when you take a step back and look at the way the President
    is handling this, his refusal to concede, what do you think is really
    going on here? In your view, Mr. President-Elect, what do you think the President is doing? What are Americans witnessing here?

    BIDEN: Let me choose my words. I think they're witnessing incredible irresponsibility, incredibly damaging messages being sent to the rest
    of the world about how democracy functions, and I think it is well, I
    don't know his motive, but I just think it's totally irresponsible.

    BRUCE: Are you concerned he may succeed, that people may question the legitimacy of your administration?

    4:28 p.m. Eastern

    KRISTEN WELKER: Thank you, Mr. President-Elect. Thank you, Vice President-Elect Harris. Appreciate it.

    BIDEN: Nice to be in person, not on television.

    WELKER: Nice to see you as well. Yes, appreciate it. You have said that
    lives could be lost if you don't start getting briefings from the Trump administration and now here we are, more than 250,000 lives could be
    lost. Given that, how do you justify not taking legal action to get the briefings that you say are critical, that you say you need?

    BIDEN: It would take a lot of time. It would take time. It's not going
    to speed it up considerably, in my view. And in the meantime, I am
    hopeful that I am going to be able to get cooperation from our
    Republican colleagues in the Senate and the House, as well as the
    governors to build a consensus as to how we proceed when we do.

    WELKER: But why not use every tool in your toolbox to get the
    information that you say you need to do your job and to do it
    effectively on day one?

    BIDEN: I'm making a judgment based on many years of experience of how
    to get things done with the opposition.

    WELKER: Do you think you'll win?

    BIDEN: And my judgment is my judgment is that it is we'll get
    further along by actually working with our Republican colleagues now
    and because the time in which we would win would not materially
    change necessarily, but it's still an open question. It's an open
    question. It could change.

    WELKER: So you haven't ruled out? You havent ruled out legal action
    against the Trump administration against the GSA?

    BIDEN: We haven't ruled it out.

    WELKER: Okay. And given the death toll now, more than 250,000 Americans
    who have now lost their lives, you have said that you would support a nationwide shutdown if scientists recommended it.

    BIDEN: No. Let no.

    WELKER: You've spoken to scientists now

    BIDEN: I know. Everybody asks that question every single time I stand
    here. It was a hypothetical question. The answer was, I would follow
    the science. I am not going to shut down the economy, period. I'm going
    to shut down the virus. That's what I'm going to shut down.

    WELKER: So that's ruled out?

    BIDEN: I'll say again, no national shutdown. No national shutdown,
    because every region, every area, every community is can be
    different.

    4:31 p.m. Eastern

    YAMICHE ALCINDOR: Thank you, Mr. Vice President-Elect. And Vice thank
    you, Mr. President-Elect and Vice President-Elect Harris. A question
    for you first, which is what do you make of the fact that the President
    is having these calls with Michigan county officials amid his bid to
    overturn the election? He's going to be having also Michigan Republican legislators at the White House tomorrow. Is anything that he's doing
    that is making you rethink your strategy? You say you don't want legal
    action right now. And what did you say to Americans, especially
    immigrant Americans who came to the United States, looking for
    political stability and are seeing all the things that the President is
    doing?
    (....)

    4:33 p.m. Eastern

    ALCINDOR: But as he as he ups the things that he's doing, calling
    officials, is it making you rethink your strategy at all? Is there
    anything that he would be doing that would make you say okay, we really
    have to go to court now? Or are you still watching what he's doing and
    saying we can still kind of wait and see what happens?

    BIDEN: I'm not going to rule anything out, or anything in, but at the
    moment, the strategy is not changing.

    ALCINDOR: And if I could ask a question to the Vice President-Elect,
    would that be okay?

    BIDEN: Sure.

    ALCINDOR: Vice President-Elect Harris, you talked about your state
    your state experience. My question is, is there anything you heard from governors today that made you specifically concerned about vulnerable populations, especially as I talk to Americans who say I don't have the privilege to work from home? I don't have the privilege to social
    distance if I'm living in a house with multigenerations. Are you are
    you did you hear anything that concerns you specifically? And what
    can we do for them as a country?

    --
    Democrats and the liberal media hate President Trump more than they
    love this country.

    He completely fucked up the metaphor. A hope cannot be a "fool's errand."
    You *send* someone on a fool's errand, or you harbor a *forlorn* hope.
    This idiot fucked it up.

    He's lying about the press conference, and you're saying something stupid.
    Thinking people follow the mainstream media because that's where the news
    is reported. You don't find "news" at "wnd" or "federalist" or "westernjournal" or any of your other beloved lie sites. What you find
    there are lies.

    incredible irresponsibility, incredibly damaging messages
    being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy
    functions, and I think it is well, I don't know his motive,
    but I just think it's totally irresponsible.

    BRUCE: Are you concerned he may succeed, that people may
    question the legitimacy of your administration?

    Taking the place of Mike Memoli from the first presser and Geoff
    Bennett in the second, NBCs Kristen Welker represented the Comcast
    network and started by yukking it up with Biden about how it was nice
    to see you in-person.

    Predictably, it was a precursor to her softball: You have said that
    lives could be lost if you don't start getting briefings from the Trump administration and now here we are, more than 250,000 lives could be
    lost. Given that, how do you justify not taking legal action to get the briefings that you say are critical, that you say you need?

    After asking a follow-up lamenting about Biden not us[ing] every tool
    in your toolbox to get the transition going, Welker asked two more
    about possible legal action against the General Services Administration
    (GSA) to begin a formal presidential transition.

    Welker then used the remainder of her time to press Biden on another
    set of lockdowns to curb the spread of the coronavirus (click
    expand):

    WELKER: Okay. And given the death toll now, more than 250,000
    Americans who have now lost their lives, you have said that
    you would support a nationwide shutdown if scientists
    recommended it.

    BIDEN: No. Let no.

    WELKER: You've spoken to scientists now

    BIDEN: I know. Everybody asks that question every single time
    I stand here. It was a hypothetical question. The answer was,
    I would follow the science. I am not going to shut down the
    economy, period. I'm going to shut down the virus. That's what
    I'm going to shut down.

    WELKER: So that's ruled out?

    BIDEN: I'll say again, no national shutdown. No national
    shutdown, because every region, every area, every community
    is can be different.

    MSNBC contributor and PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor was also
    there, so Bruce had quite the competition for who could suck up the
    most to the new administration.

    In her first question, Alcindor wondered what he made of the Trump
    campaigns actions in Michigan and used that to wonder about his
    message to new Americans: And what did you say to Americans,
    especially immigrant Americans who came to the United States, looking
    for political stability and are seeing all the things that the
    President is doing?

    Alcindor had a follow-up about whether hes rethink[ing] his
    strategy and moving toward forcing the GSAs hand, but then asked
    this of Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA):

    [Y]ou talked about your state your state experience. My
    question is, is there anything you heard from governors today
    that made you specifically concerned about vulnerable
    populations, especially as I talk to Americans who say I don't
    have the privilege to work from home? I don't have the
    privilege to social distance if I'm living in a house with
    multigenerations. Are you are you did you hear anything
    that concerns you specifically? And what can we do for them
    as a country?

    Eye roll.

    As for the reporter that chose not to be a Biden sycophant, Bloombergs
    Justin Sink asked Biden about the outlines of a coronavirus relief
    package, who would be his Treasury secretary, sanctions against China,
    and the state of the U.S. dollar.

    In this day and age, what a lonely job it must be for journalist who
    actually ask real questions of Democrats.

    MSNBCs coverage of the Biden press conference was made possible by advertisers such as Netflix and Sling TV. CNN did not have ads during
    its 4:00 p.m. Eastern hour, but follow the links on the MSNBC ads to
    the MRCs Conservatives Fight Back page.

    conference, click expand.

    Joe Biden Press Conference
    November 19, 2020
    4:22 p.m. Eastern

    JUSTIN SINK: I know you mentioned the economic impact and talked a bit
    about the relief package you wanted. But I was wondering if we could
    talk about things that you will be able to do as president or what will
    sort govern your decision in terms of the economy. So I was wondering
    if I could ask, what kind of framework are you thinking about as you
    decide about a treasury secretary going forward, whether you would
    consider you had said during the debates that you wanted to punish
    China over the way that they've been acting, whether that could include economic sanctions or tariffs with China. And, finally, do you think a
    strong dollar helps or hurts the U.S. as we're grappling with historic unemployment?

    4:24 p.m. Eastern

    JOE BIDEN: And what was your third question?

    SINK: It was about the dollar, sir, whether you think a strong dollar
    will help or hurt with unemployment or generally just how you would
    like the federal reserve to sort of approach the pandemic?

    4:26 p.m. Eastern

    MARY BRUCE: You have said that if this transition doesn't get going, especially coordination on vaccine distribution, that lives will be
    lost. How many lives do you think are at risk here if this transition
    remains stalled?

    4:26 p.m. Eastern

    BRUCE: And when you take a step back and look at the way the President
    is handling this, his refusal to concede, what do you think is really
    going on here? In your view, Mr. President-Elect, what do you think the President is doing? What are Americans witnessing here?

    BIDEN: Let me choose my words. I think they're witnessing incredible irresponsibility, incredibly damaging messages being sent to the rest
    of the world about how democracy functions, and I think it is well, I
    don't know his motive, but I just think it's totally irresponsible.

    BRUCE: Are you concerned he may succeed, that people may question the legitimacy of your administration?

    4:28 p.m. Eastern

    KRISTEN WELKER: Thank you, Mr. President-Elect. Thank you, Vice President-Elect Harris. Appreciate it.

    BIDEN: Nice to be in person, not on television.

    WELKER: Nice to see you as well. Yes, appreciate it. You have said that
    lives could be lost if you don't start getting briefings from the Trump administration and now here we are, more than 250,000 lives could be
    lost. Given that, how do you justify not taking legal action to get the briefings that you say are critical, that you say you need?

    BIDEN: It would take a lot of time. It would take time. It's not going
    to speed it up considerably, in my view. And in the meantime, I am
    hopeful that I am going to be able to get cooperation from our
    Republican colleagues in the Senate and the House, as well as the
    governors to build a consensus as to how we proceed when we do.

    WELKER: But why not use every tool in your toolbox to get the
    information that you say you need to do your job and to do it
    effectively on day one?

    BIDEN: I'm making a judgment based on many years of experience of how
    to get things done with the opposition.

    WELKER: Do you think you'll win?

    BIDEN: And my judgment is my judgment is that it is we'll get
    further along by actually working with our Republican colleagues now
    and because the time in which we would win would not materially
    change necessarily, but it's still an open question. It's an open
    question. It could change.

    WELKER: So you haven't ruled out? You havent ruled out legal action
    against the Trump administration against the GSA?

    BIDEN: We haven't ruled it out.

    WELKER: Okay. And given the death toll now, more than 250,000 Americans
    who have now lost their lives, you have said that you would support a nationwide shutdown if scientists recommended it.

    BIDEN: No. Let no.

    WELKER: You've spoken to scientists now

    BIDEN: I know. Everybody asks that question every single time I stand
    here. It was a hypothetical question. The answer was, I would follow
    the science. I am not going to shut down the economy, period. I'm going
    to shut down the virus. That's what I'm going to shut down.

    WELKER: So that's ruled out?

    BIDEN: I'll say again, no national shutdown. No national shutdown,
    because every region, every area, every community is can be
    different.

    4:31 p.m. Eastern

    YAMICHE ALCINDOR: Thank you, Mr. Vice President-Elect. And Vice thank
    you, Mr. President-Elect and Vice President-Elect Harris. A question
    for you first, which is what do you make of the fact that the President
    is having these calls with Michigan county officials amid his bid to
    overturn the election? He's going to be having also Michigan Republican legislators at the White House tomorrow. Is anything that he's doing
    that is making you rethink your strategy? You say you don't want legal
    action right now. And what did you say to Americans, especially
    immigrant Americans who came to the United States, looking for
    political stability and are seeing all the things that the President is
    doing?
    (....)

    4:33 p.m. Eastern

    ALCINDOR: But as he as he ups the things that he's doing, calling
    officials, is it making you rethink your strategy at all? Is there
    anything that he would be doing that would make you say okay, we really
    have to go to court now? Or are you still watching what he's doing and
    saying we can still kind of wait and see what happens?

    BIDEN: I'm not going to rule anything out, or anything in, but at the
    moment, the strategy is not changing.

    ALCINDOR: And if I could ask a question to the Vice President-Elect,
    would that be okay?

    BIDEN: Sure.

    ALCINDOR: Vice President-Elect Harris, you talked about your state
    your state experience. My question is, is there anything you heard from governors today that made you specifically concerned about vulnerable populations, especially as I talk to Americans who say I don't have the privilege to work from home? I don't have the privilege to social
    distance if I'm living in a house with multigenerations. Are you are
    you did you hear anything that concerns you specifically? And what
    can we do for them as a country?

    --
    Democrats and the liberal media hate President Trump more than they
    love this country.

         Trump doesn't have to concede.

    Then why did the leftist reporter ask Slow Joe about it?  That was
    a rhetorical question..  The reporters know not to ask him anything
    important and watch him stutter and stammer.

    Instead of blurting out some stupid lie.

         He just needs to turn over the
    transition papers and clear out of
    the Whitehouse by Jan 20.


    I think Trump enjoys watching Democrats shit themselves. I do too.
    The next two years will be fun to watch as the Democrats struggle
    within the party and against the Senate and the SCOTUS.

    Nobody cares what childish morons enjoy. Trump lost, it's time for
    the grownups to get to work.

    The grownup is working, while the childish Democrats are still caught
    up in their "attack Trump" mode.

    Yes Trump has more than likely lost, but Trump has every right to
    challenge the results, and there is nothing which says that he has to
    concede the election until those challenges are exhausted. Adults
    understand this, children like you apparently do not.

    Where are the tweets from all of the sphincter-clenched members of the
    media crying about how the "President-elect" is attacking the free press?

    Meet the new boss-- same as the old boss-- but the new boss gets a pass.


    Who gives a fuck about Twitter? Oh, yeah... you.

    Thinking people like the talking heads at Fox News?

         Trump doesn't have to concede.

    Then why did the leftist reporter ask Slow Joe about it?  That was >>>>> a rhetorical question..  The reporters know not to ask him anything >>>>> important and watch him stutter and stammer.

    Instead of blurting out some stupid lie.

         He just needs to turn over the
    transition papers and clear out of
    the Whitehouse by Jan 20.


    I think Trump enjoys watching Democrats shit themselves. I do too.
    The next two years will be fun to watch as the Democrats struggle
    within the party and against the Senate and the SCOTUS.

    Nobody cares what childish morons enjoy. Trump lost, it's time for
    the grownups to get to work.

    The grownup is working, while the childish Democrats are still caught
    up in their "attack Trump" mode.


         The election is over, Trump lost, get used to it.

    Yes Trump has more than likely lost, but Trump has every right to challenge the results,

    He doesn't have a "right" to challenge them on the basis of nothing. He doesn't have a "right" to try to strongarm state legislatures to ignore the results and appoint electors for him. These are the elements of an
    attempted coup.

    The grownup is working,

    Yes, but he isn't named Trump.

    He certainly is not named Biden.

    Yes, he is. Biden is an adult with whom you disagree, and Trump is a big baby.

    Trump is not "working", he is golfing and having a mental breakdown. He
    will kill even more people with this tantrum that he knows can't work,
    because he is a spoiled child. People didn't hope for their president to
    be an incompetent maniac, it just happens to be who he is.
