Fox News waived the white flag in a major fight with Joe Biden.
No one had ever seen anything like this before.
And now Joe Biden celebrated this giant victory over Fox News.
In recent days programming on Fox News did a 180 turn.
Hosts and guests touted the coronavirus vaccine.
The network mentioned the government’s vaccination website multiple times in one day after not speaking a word about it for six months.
Fox News hosts even filmed a PSA urging viewers to take the vaccine.
Arriving back in Washington following a disastrous town hall appearance where Biden couldn’t string five words together in a coherent sentence as he repeatedly lost train of thought – Biden bragged about Fox News conforming to the administration’s message.
Biden told reporters:
Well, rather than be critical of it, I thank them for it. I think it’s a matter of — first of all, in truth, I don’t know how many of them believed what they were saying. They may have really believed it — the things that they’ve been saying.
And — but I think once the realization occurred that this virus is only killing primarily those people who had not been vaccinated, I think it was sort of, as we Catholics say, a bit of an “epiphany” for them. You know, it was a — like a — you know, conversion on the way to Damascus or something.
But I think it became real, and I — I’m glad they had the courage to say what they said. And hopefully it will have some impact.
Fox News backing to Joe Biden came after the administration leaned on the network in private.
Jen Psaki told reporters:
Sure, well let me first say that we’ve been in touch with every network and many many media outlets about coverage of COVID-19 to make sure people have accurate information, to voice concerns when we have them, and I think you all know we’re never shy when we have an issue with a story. So that’s really the frame we’re looking at here.
So, we understand, also, the importance of reaching Fox’s audience about the COVID-19 vaccines and their benefits, like we are with all of you here today, we of course are in regular contact, and we also make efforts to have officials out on our range of networks to talk about COVID-19. We don’t see it as a partisan issue, we don’t see vaccines as a political issue. It’s an issue about keeping Americans safe.
The administration’s latest focus is censoring misinformation on social media.
Joe Biden and Jen Psaki can’t pressure cable companies to drop Fox News in the same way they can threaten Facebook unless the social media giant implements the administration’s Communist Chinese style internet censorship protocols.
Instead, they’ve relied on private meetings and a pressure campaign from their allies in the press to force Fox News to play ball on the administration’s preferred message.
