Just as they all did on night three of the Democratic National Convention with their nauseating gushing for former President Obama’s speech, the Zuckerville collective preached their prescribed consensus: Joe Biden’s closing address was “the best performance I've ever seen.” And with that, a convention night echo chamber ensued. Although, one panelist would eventually give away the game.

Immediately after the DNC allowed CNN to take control of the broadcast again, Host Wolf Blitzer praised his 2020 candidate. “[T]his was a moment for Joe Biden, the most important speech of his political career, and he was powerful in doing it,” he told shoddy journalist Jake Tapper.

“I've heard Joe Biden give, I don't know, dozens, hundreds of speeches over the years. I have to say this was one of the best, if not the best performance I've ever seen,” Tapper declared, seeding the CNN echo chamber.
