As I reported this afternoon, Joe Biden blew up at a CNN reporter today, insulting Kaitlan Collins multiple times after she asked him a basic question about expectations and Vladimir Putin. While Biden’s shows of senility and outbursts aren’t exactly new, that he was unable to control himself in this situation was still surprising.
The real question, though, was how the media would react. They had already been mistreated, by their own claim, earlier that day. Would they go after Biden the way they went after Trump for every perceived slight? In my original write-up, I had this to say about how I thought the media would handle Biden’s meltdown.
Now, he’s yelling at friendly media outlets like he’s off his meds, probably because he’s actually off his meds. Will they go hard at him for this attack on freedom of the press? Will Brian Stelter, whose beat is supposedly covering the media, condemn this vicious assault of one of his network’s own reporters?
I think we know the answer to that. The media, like they always do, will fall in line. Perhaps we’ll get a couple of meek denouncements, but it’ll stop there and they’ll be back to licking his boots in no time.
Admittedly, me being proven right on that point was just a formality, but the sheer pace at which the media turned this matter on its head is just an incredible thing to witness. Within 30 minutes, Wolf Blitzer was on CNN praising the president.

Today felt like a special moment in media bias history. We literally had the president verbally insult and berate a
