An objective and watchful media should be provide a rigorous inquiry into any political candidate. This is the most noble service it offers a Democratic society and what makes the First Amendment so beautifully intertwined with freedom.
But when it fails to act in such a manner, especially when it purports to be doing so, the mainstream media transforms from a useful tool for democracy to become the propaganda arm of the powerful elite who wield it for their bidding.
It is for that reason that President Donald Trump is calling out the media for using its power not to probe, but to protect presidential candidate Joe Biden, as Breitbart reported.
“[H]is reporters have zero drive,” said Trump about the media covering Biden,. “Why can’t my reporters behave like that? Something is going on!”

After naming Kamala Harris to be his running mate, Biden has held events for three days without taking a single question from reporters. “I don’t understand what’s going on here. This is the damnedest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Chris Wallace.
“Very strange. Sleepy Joe never takes questions,” said Trump.
