At a campaign event Thursday, former Vice President and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden mislead the public about how many Americans had died from the coronavirus, claiming “over 120 million dead from COVID.” In reality, there have been over 120 thousand Americans killed by the virus, which meant Biden’s claim was 1,000 times larger. That gross miscalculation went completely unreported by ABC, CBS, and NBC’s evening newscasts, which all boasted about Biden calling Trump a “child.”
On top of all that, they completely ignored findings from The Washington Free Beacon that discovered the Biden Cancer Initiative spent 65 percent of its funding on staff and executive salaries, instead of fighting cancer.
CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell began their segment by whining about President Trump suggesting the number of COVID cases was rising due to more testing. “But experts say that claim is misleading,” she huffed, oblivious to the irony that Biden was misleading people too. “And on the campaign trail, Joe Biden said the President has failed the American people and is acting like a child,” she touted.
In the midst of the CBS report, White House correspondent Paula Reid echoed O’Donnell’s cheering. “The former Vice President, campaigning in Pennsylvania, slammed the President for being more concerned about himself than the average American,” she said.
