The media has fawned over Joe Biden’s every move no matter how wrong, illogical, or sometimes even bizarre it might be.
In the eyes of the Democrat-controlled media, Joe Biden saved them from that evil man, Donald Trump.
But the Biden worshipping Washington Post just called the President out on something that shocked everyone.
Towards the end of Donald Trump’s time in the White House, then-Attorney General Bill Barr authorized the Department of Justice to seize the phone and email records of reporters as part of ongoing leak investigations.
Some were surprised Biden’s DOJ continued that practice.
Eventually, Biden did an about-face after the press caught on and reported that he was continuing the Trump-era policy.
Donald Trump could have passed a bill that required every American child to be given a puppy, and the Left would reverse it solely because it was something Trump did.
So, it is surprising that a Trump-era policy was continued in the beginning months of Biden’s presidency.
But once Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan caught wind of what was happening, he released a scathing op-ed blasting Biden for an “attack on the First Amendment.”
Ryan wrote, “Biden rightly decried this attack on the First Amendment, calling it ‘simply, simply wrong’ and assuring Americans that it would not happen in his administration. Unfortunately, new revelations suggest that the Biden Justice Department not only allowed these disturbing intrusions to continue — it intensified the government’s attack on First Amendment rights before finally backing down in the face of reporting about its conduct.”
But Ryan didn’t stop there, going on to blast Jen Psaki for not being able to answer why Joe Biden’s previous promise of this not happening under his watch clearly did not align with what his DOJ was doing.
“When asked about how the President’s assurances can be squared with his Justice Department’s behavior, White House press secretary Jen Psaki could offer no explanation. She subsequently released a statement disavowing White House knowledge of the actions that appear to have continued for several months during Biden’s presidency,” Ryan stated.
Ryan went on in his piece to say that the actions taken by the Biden administration, as well as those taken by the Trump administration, are a threat to the ability of Americans to “keep powerful officials in check.”
In concluding his op-ed, Ryan called for “a full accounting” of the actions taken by the Trump DOJ and the Biden DOJ.
Seems the Biden love has its limits.
The simple act of a published report to the world that Joe Biden carried on a Trump-era policy has the President scrambling to turn it around quickly.
Of course, the Biden administration arguably owes its existence to Deep State operatives more than it does even to big, corporate media like The Washington Post.
So it’s hard to imagine that even if the Biden administration actually reversed course on it’s “attack on the First Amendment,” for reporters that anyone else’s First and Fourth amendment rights would get equal respect.
