Puck: The White House "Reporters" All Knew That Biden's Dementia Had Entered the Galloping Phase, But Covered It Up

Via Ed Morrissey at Hot Air, Puck bothered to ask White House "reporters" if they noticed that Biden was in steep mental decline, and they said yes, the "reporters" had discussions among themselves about it all the time.

They just didn't see fit to share this with the public they supposedly serve.

Dylan Byers:

This week, I surveyed members of the White House press corps--reporters, on-air correspondents, photographers, etcetera--and they all emphasized that the symptoms of Biden's age had become more noticeable in recent months and a frequent discussion topic at the desks behind the Brady briefing room. "Anyone who covers this White House knows he's showing the signs of his age--he whispers, he shuffles, he misremembers," one White House reporter told me. "Anyone with an elderly parent knows what this is."

Since the beginning of Biden's term, many White House journalists have reported on, or alluded to, concerns surrounding Biden's age in often gentle or euphemistic ways. Nevertheless, several of the journalists I spoke with said the true significance and importance of that issue, as they observed it, was not reflected in the coverage--often due to the sense that it was sensitive or unseemly, or because there was no obvious evidence that it had affected his performance as president beyond optics. Or, left unsaid, perhaps because they didn't want to ruin their relationship with the White House by being the lone wolf to speak up.

Or, just maybe, reporters are an all-Democrat Guild who fight hard to elect Democrats and suppress negative information about them to the extent possible.

"It was something that felt indelicate to talk about," one member of the White House press corps told me. In retrospect, some journalists felt like it probably warranted more coverage: "The amount of time we spent talking about it versus the time we spent reporting on it was not the same," one of the reporters said. "There should have been tougher, more scrutinizing coverage of his age earlier."

Like in 2020, maybe?

No, of course not. Notice they're now setting up the Modified Limited Hangout Fallback Position that while Biden is showing mental decline, he only started really showing it in the past few months. Thereby absolving themselves of the cover-up before 2020, and the coverup from 2021 until a coupe of months ago.

They're only (anonymously) copping to an Insufficiency of Effort in the past couple of months. Since Christmas, basically.

Morrissey commented:

Of late, we hear plenty from the news industry about a "crisis" for democracy as their platforms downsize or fail. They are a necessity for a well-informed republic, media professionals insist, But how can they make that argument while at the same time refusing to actually inform the public, especially about a critical failure at the head of government and state?

They work in a Higher Sort of Truth, peon.
