The media spent the entire weekend loudly hyping a Monday meeting in which Senate Democrats were supposedly going to force President Biden out of the 2024 race. Then on Sunday night the media quietly admitted that no such meeting was happening. Even as this was playing out, a major media outlet falsely reported that an influential House Democrat had used a conference call to demand that Biden drop out. After that House Democrat revealed he didn’t even speak on the call, the story was quietly retracted.

This told us all we needed to know about how this week was going to go. Sure enough, even as the media was spending the first part of the week eagerly insisting that House Democrats were in the process of forcing Biden out, one group of House Democrats after another publicly announced their support for Biden in 2024. It was as if the media was trying to shout down reality in order to keep selling its fictional ratings-driven narrative about Biden being in trouble.

Even though it’s plainly obvious that Biden is going to be the nominee and that the Democratic Party is coalescing around him, the nonsense headlines continue. One major news outlet ran a headline on Tuesday which implied that House Democrats were split on what to do about Biden, only to reveal in the fine print that the pro-Biden House Democrats vastly outnumbered the handful of House Democrats who want him to drop out.

In other words this really is just a bunch of horse crap on the media’s part. It’s a media circus sideshow at a time when Trump has disappeared and there’s very little real political news happening. Except wait a minute, there is in fact plenty of political news happening. Project 2025 being tied directly to Trump. Jeffry Epstein. Ongoing questions about Trump’s worsening dementia. You name it. The media is just too busy making up phony controversies about Biden to bother covering it. Palmer Report isn’t going to let that happen. Donate to Palmer Report
