Joe Biden’s poll numbers are terrible and getting worse. It’s largely driven by his handling of the economy.
Instead of changing his economic policies, his administration thinks they can turn things around with better media coverage and they’re reportedly meeting with media companies in secret to discuss it.
This is a scandal. One might even call it collusion.
If you can believe it, this was originally reported by CNN. Maybe they were mad for being left out.
The Daily Caller reports:
REPORT: Media Companies ‘Meet In Secret’ With Biden White House To Discuss More Favorable Economic Coverage
The White House has been working with major news outlets “behind the scenes” to “reshape coverage” on the economic crisis, according to CNN.
The administration has been “briefing major newsrooms over the past week” while “discussing with newsrooms trends pertaining to job creation, economic growth, supply chains, and more,” CNN reports, citing an anonymous source.
The administration has argued that “the country’s economy is in much better shape than it was last year.” CNN reported the conversations have “been productive, with anchors and reporters and producers getting to talk with the officials.”
This is simply unacceptable.

All the Biden White House cares about is how things are reported.
The truth doesn’t matter.
