The liberal media used to dismiss concerns about President Biden’s fitness for office as just bad-faith attacks from people on the right. But with a sober article from New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker Saturday night, it turns out that people inside the administration are also concerned and it’s affecting how the President does the job. But despite this admission, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have ignored the paper of record, while the cables (CNN and MSNBC) have each noted it once.
In his article titled “At 79, Biden Is Testing the Boundaries of Age and the Presidency,” Baker begins by noting Biden’s upcoming trip to the Middle East which “was initially tacked onto another journey last month to Europe, which would have made for an arduous 10-day overseas trek until it became clear to Mr. Biden’s team that such extended travel might be unnecessarily taxing for a 79-year-old president, or ‘crazy,’ as one official put it.”
And while he does share the quiet, anonymous warnings from those not “sanctioned by the White House” to speak on matters of the President’s health, Baker also leans on those allowed to give the talking points. “Everyone ages differently, of course, and some experts put Mr. Biden in a category of ‘super-agers’ who remain unusually fit as they advance in years,” he wrote.
