Remember the old game show Beat the Clock? Sure you do! Teams of contestants had to accomplish some kind of crazy task before the clock ran out.
Well, when it comes to the Pay-to-Play scandal swirling around old Joe, Team Biden is playing their own version of Beat the Clock.
Their goal is to get to election day before the tick-tock of this growing scandal scuttles Joe’s chances on November 3rd.
Unfortunately for Team Biden, the tick-tock of the story clock just keeps getting louder.
Yesterday, Fox News was able to verify that the emails found on Hunter’s computer regarding the dealings with China are in fact authentic. Meanwhile, the New York Post continues to release new information every day.
But the Biden campaign aren’t the only contestants playing on his team. The media is there too – desperate to run out the clock while keeping the old man insulated from the fall-out of this explosive story.
This is their crazy task: get Joe to election day before HunterGate/ChinaGate/UkraineGate blows up in his face.
And how does the media hope to beat the clock?
Well, either by ignoring the story and not asking Joe about it, or, if all else fails, claiming the story is nothing but “Russian disinformation.”
In other words, in an effort to prevent this Pay-to-Play scandal from hurting Team Biden, the media hopes to clear the obstacle course of any obstacles so old Joe can hobble unhindered to the finish line before the clock runs out on his campaign.
My guess is they figure with only 18 days remaining, they can successfully beat the clock and keep the story from touching Joe.
But a lot can happen in eighteen days.
All it takes is a few reporters who refuse to play for Team Biden.
Yesterday, CBS reporter Bo Erickson, in an accidental moment of journalism, directly asked Biden about the scandal. And old Joe didn’t handle it well – which is what happens when you are used to reporters playing on your team.
And rather than excoriate Biden for attacking Erickson, fellow reporters seem more upset with Erickson for having the nerve to break ranks.
Clearly in an effort to save its place on Biden’s Beat the Clock team, this morning CBS News went back to the stories that matter:
Good grief. They really are pathetic, aren’t they?
We already know that Facebook and Twitter are playing on Biden’s Beat the Clock Team. But as I said the other day, their ham-handed attempts to quash the New York Post story actually drew far more attention to it.
If Biden’s only hope for beating the clock rests on the news media and Big Tech running interference for him, that’s going to be a hard sell.
Voters are going to wonder why A) reporters won’t press him on it and B) Biden refuses to directly address it.
We’re already on notice over Biden’s refusal to directly address court packing.
I know I keep saying this, but it isn’t 2008 anymore. The mainstream news media does not have the control over information and public opinion that they did twelve years ago. And, frankly, it is entirely their fault.
During the Obama years, the media’s sycophantic shielding of their Chosen One eroded the public’s trust in them. That trust has since been obliterated thanks to four years of anonymously-sourced, unverified smear campaigns against President Trump.
You don’t think we see it?
You don’t think we notice how anonymous smears were treated as gospel when the target is Trump, but verified, documented evidence against Biden is ignored or dismissed?
This is the problem with this desperate game of Beat the Clock. In the words of Andrew Breitbart, “We are on to you.”
More importantly, we don’t trust you.
We know you’re biased.
We know you’re on Team Biden.
And as much as you might want voters to remain ignorant, we’re not as stupid as you think we are.
