Biden Reprimands Media For Economy Coverage

President Joe Biden has taken a swipe at the media for what he sees as their negative coverage of the economy, as he departed the White House on Saturday for his Christmas holiday at Camp David. The President, who has been increasingly critical of the press, accused them of focusing on negative news instead of positive things that have come from his administration.

In response to a reporter’s question about his outlook on the economy going into 2024, Biden replied “All good. Take a look. Start reporting it the right way.” The President had a smirk on his face as he scolded the media for their coverage of the economy.

However, despite Biden’s attempts to downplay concerns about the economy, data and public opinion paint a different picture. According to a recent Fox News poll, only 14% of Americans believe that Biden’s economic policies have helped them, while almost half (46%) say his administration has actually hurt them financially. These low numbers cross party lines, with 61% of Democrats joining the 93% of Republicans and 85% of independents who say the economy is in bad condition.

This pessimism about the economy is reflected in the President’s overall approval rating, which continues to reach historic lows. In addition, Biden’s handling of the economy is being closely watched as a factor in his unpopularity.

The RealClearPolitics average of polls shows him trailing former President Donald Trump by more than two points in a hypothetical rematch. This is significant, as Biden’s performance on the economy was a key issue in the 2020 presidential election and helped him secure victory.

It is not surprising that Americans are concerned about the economy and its impact on their lives. The high inflation rate, rising cost of goods and services, and supply chain issues have all contributed to a sense of economic instability.

These concerns are also shared by Democrats, who are becoming increasingly worried about Biden’s handling of the economy.

In addition to the economy, the President is facing other challenges that could harm his chances in the 2024 presidential election. The crisis at the southern border, recent developments in Ukraine and Israel, and the ongoing legal issues surrounding his son Hunter are all potential stumbling blocks for Biden’s administration. Moreover, House Republicans have launched an impeachment inquiry into the President, which could further damage his image and credibility.

However, despite these challenges and criticisms, Biden remains steadfast in his belief that the economy is doing well and that the media should report on it more positively. His scolding of the press is not new, as he has previously accused them of “focusing on bad news” and ignoring the positive achievements of his administration. However, the public’s opinion and data clearly show dissatisfaction with the economy.
