'Shame on the White House Press Corps': Former NY Times Editor Blasts Media for Journalistic Failure

It almost reads like an article from RedState, but it’s not—instead, it’s an op-ed published Tuesday in Semafor by Jill Abramson, former executive editor of the once-august New York Times, and in it, she absolutely shreds the complicit corporate media complex for failing to uncover the truth about Joe Biden’s mental condition. That cover-up was blown wide open last Thursday by the president’s erratic, disturbing performance during what may go down as one of the most infamous debates in history.

Abramson, who served as executive editor at The Gray Lady from 2011 to 2014, was brutal in her analysis of the stain that this abject journalistic failure will leave on the Fourth Estate:

It’s clear the best news reporters in Washington have failed in the first duty of journalism: to hold power accountable. It is our duty to poke through White House smoke screens and find out the truth. The Biden White House clearly succeeded in a massive cover-up of the degree of the President’s feebleness and his serious physical decline, which may be simply the result of old age. Shame on the White House press corps for not to have pierced the veil of secrecy surrounding the President.

Wow. That is a 1,000 percent, dead on target, hittin’ the bullseye admission. Shame. She rightly filets the White House for the massive cover-up effort but also shreds the media for not having pierced “the veil of secrecy.”

My only criticism of her opening paragraph is that I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “failure”—the journalistic lack of effort was entirely on purpose, carried out by corrupt fanatics who care more about their progressive ideology than they do the future and safety of this country. They mostly succeeded in that mission—until now.

The failure was widespread; most of the “legendary” journalists and outlets of the modern age were nowhere to be found over the last three and a half years (unless they were bashing Donald Trump).

Abramson continued, saying what everyone who’s watched the press and the White House lie to us over and over and over has been thinking:

It is simply astounding for the entire country, including its most seasoned reporters, to be as shocked as everyone was by the ugly and painful reality of Biden’s debate performance.

And it is laughable and immoral for Democrats to blame the press now for over-reacting to that reality. The reports of how bad Biden was are certainly not exaggerated. Nor are the reports of Democrats in panic.

While I applaud Abramson’s choice to finally tell the truth, I wonder where she—and the New York Times Editorial Board, and Woodward, and Bernstein, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, etc., etc.—have been all this time. Where the hell were you? Outlets like RedState were right here all along, bringing you reality.

The answer: they were there all along, too, and they knew the truth—they just didn’t want you to know it. 

Excellent piece, Ms. Abramson, but it would have been even better three and a half years ago when Biden’s mental issues were already patently obvious. 

They lied to us for years, despite what we could see with our own eyes. Don’t rely on them—we told you all along what was happening, and we didn’t mince words.
