If TV networks want to air free infomercials to help Joe Biden — as ABC, CNN and NBC have been doing via their “town halls” — that’s their business. But pretending these events are even-handed is absurd.
NBC this week even tried to fraudulently pass off blatant Biden backers as neutral, uncommitted voters.
“We are surrounded by dozens of undecided voters,” NBC’s Lester Holt claimed. Yet what followed was a nonstop volley of softballs and loaded, anti-Trump questions: Was Biden surprised President Trump got COVID? How will Biden lead the nation when faced with “bullies” like Trump?
Not asked were questions like: Does Biden embrace Democrats’ threat to pack the Supreme Court if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed? And why hasn’t he blasted Antifa or Black Lives Matter violence?
Nor did anyone ask about his waffling on fracking or the Green New Deal. Or grill him on the millions his family earned from foreign sources while he was in office.
Clearly, left-leaning outlets are terrified of putting Biden on the spot with real questions. Why else would NBC stack its event for him, by featuring pro-Biden voters claiming to be undecided?
Peter Gonzalez and Ismael Llano, for instance, openly backed the Dem on MSNBC in August. Michelle Cruz Marrero is linked on Facebook to Cubanos con Biden.
ABC News did likewise last month, allowing Trump-haters to pose as “uncommitted” voters and ask the prez hostile questions. CNN at its town hall had nearly all Democrats, Curtis Houck at mrcTV reported, pitching friendly queries to Biden.
If Joe Biden is to lead the nation, Americans should know where he stands before voting. Networks do the nation a major disservice by defrauding viewers — and not putting Biden to the test.
