Media stumbled in covering Biden’s mental fitness

Brian Stelter in Vox, July 3, 2024, writes that as some Republicans think the media was not covering President Joe Biden’s mental fitness, it is not the case. But he thinks the media failed to cover the issue aggressively. Part of the problem was that the Biden administration went to extreme measures to discourage reporting on the topic. Still reporters failed to highlight evidence of Biden’s decline.

David Bauder of The Associated Press in ABC News, July 3, 2024, points out that Biden’s failure to hold press conferences deprived the press of access. Also reporters did not want to be seen favoring Trump by going after the mental fitness angle.
