Late night comics have become shills for the Democrat Party.
They don’t even make an attempt to be objective.
And Stephen Colbert shredded his dignity with this shameless defense of Biden.
Joe Biden is fading in the polls.
Democrats have convinced themselves that Biden’s backslide is a result of the so-called mainstream media not reporting on his victories.
However, Biden’s record is far from stellar, and so are the cringeworthy defenses of it.
Late night comedian Stephen Colbert did his best to sell Bidenomics with an embarrassing jazz number.
Colbert began by saying, “Oh, there’s more good news for Biden. The economy is cooking right along. The Dow’s north of 38,000 today, wages are up, unemployment’s below four percent for 23 months in a row, and today the Commerce Department announced the economy grew at 3.3 percent rate in the last quarter…Now, what does that mean? Well, it’s a little technical, but according to macroeconomic theory, number go up equal good.”
Colbert, of course, left out the fact that the COVID policies of Biden and blue-state governors took a huge bite out of the economy in the first place.
Simply getting out of the way caused a bounce back effect.
Unemployment numbers are misleading because people are taking on more part-time work to make ends meet.
Biden’s spending policies also contributed to 40-year inflation.
Biden and the Democrats like to tout that inflation has come down, but prices have not come down.
Prices are simply increasing more slowly.
Nevertheless, Colbert carried on with a shameless musical gag.
This is not the first time Colbert debased himself in service of the regime.
He also performed “The Vax Scene” set to “Tequila” to promote the COVID vaccine.
Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver, and their ilk are a far departure from Johnny Carson.
Even though Carson was a liberal, he made a point not to inject his views into the show.
He poked fun at both sides.
Carson explained in an interview, “Tell me the last time that Jack Benny, Red Skelton, any comedian used his show to do serious issues. That’s not what I’m there for. Can’t they see that? Why do they think that just because you have a Tonight Show that you must deal in serious issues? It’s a danger. It’s a real danger. Once you start that, you start to get that self-important feeling that what you say has great import. And, you know, strangely enough, you could use that show as a forum. You could use that to sway people, and I don’t think you should as an entertainer.”
Carson’s view has been completely rejected by the late-night comedians of today.
Democrat-controlled media outlet in freefall just added insult to injury with this one mistake
Corporate journalism has taken it on the chin.
Left-wing outlets that have been propped up are getting hit extra hard.
And one Democrat-controlled media outlet in freefall just added insult to injury.
Corporate-controlled media companies made a big mistake by pandering to the Left.
The left-wing media ecosystem has been oversaturated, and the editorial bent has been toward the sensibilities of college-educated “progressives,” which is not a big demographic.
As a result, these media companies are collapsing.
From viral to sickly
One such company is BuzzFeed, which announced that it is laying off a big chunk of the workforce and selling off properties.
BuzzFeed was once known for viral trends and stories, but the company’s business model has fractured.
CNN reported that the “$108.6 million sale of much of Complex Networks, which BuzzFeed purchased three years ago for $300 million, came as the company announced it would lay off 16% of its staff ahead of a ‘planned strategic restructuring’ next week to ‘enhance the company’s profitability’ and ‘reduce centralized costs.’”
That means BuzzFeed ate a 63% loss on the property.
BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti said, “The sale of Complex represents an important strategic step for BuzzFeed, Inc. as we adapt our business to be more profitable, more nimble, and more innovative…This is also an opportunity to unlock greater value for the Complex brand by combining it with NTWRK’s expansive, commerce-driven business.”
BuzzFeed and similar companies rode the wave of the digital media boom but have since crashed.
The company shut down its news division, which had several bureaus around the world.
Since BuzzFeed’s IPO in 2021, the stock has lost an eye-popping 98% of its value, currently trading at 21¢.
Even bigger outlets are feeling the crunch.
Legacy institutions not safe
The Washington Post has gone through several rounds of layoffs.
After The Los Angeles Times slashed several divisions, Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz ranted, “The entire journalism industry is basically in a freefall. Today, The Los Angeles Times laid off 115 employees. They wiped out their entire DC bureau in an election year. They laid off pretty much all of their sports teams. They killed their entire tech and business section. They laid off breaking news writers, social media editors, the list goes on. But what’s really dark is this is just the latest in months and months and months of layoffs in the media industry. In fact, tens of thousands of journalists have been laid off in the past year. Major media companies like Buzzfeed News have completely shuttered their news operations. Time magazine also just laid off a ton of people and, oh, Sports Illustrated basically shut down last week.”
Sensing the writing on the wall, Lorenz launched her own YouTube channel.
Democrat-controlled media outlets are crumbling, but independent platforms that have built organic viewerships have been able to thrive.
Legendary sports broadcaster meltdowns on CNN and blasts Trump in an unhinged tirade
Trump Derangement Syndrome is back in season.
Those who are afflicted with it are very difficult to cure.
And one legendary sports broadcaster appeared on CNN and blasted Trump in an unhinged tirade.
Longtime sports broadcaster Bob Costas is angry at Joe Biden.
His anger stems from the fact that Biden will not step down and allow a younger, more capable candidate to replace him, thus subjecting the country to the possibility of another four years of Donald Trump.
Costas appeared on CNN with host Michael Smerconish and said that Trump was “by far the most disgraceful figure in modern presidential history.”
Unfortunately for Costas and other TDS-ridden Democrats, their party does not have a strong bench of candidates from which to select.
Costas also said that Trump supporters were in a cult and added, “There is no Cult of Joe Biden.”
Costas is correct that there is no “Cult of Joe Biden,” but the entire Democrat Party is the cult.
That is why the Democrats were able to get Biden elected in the first place, despite the fact that he barely campaigned and could barely speak.
Left-wing MSNBC host Alex Wagner even wrote a piece in The Atlantic titled: “Stay Alive, Joe Biden. Democrats need little from the front-runner beyond his corporeal presence.”

Costas was more forceful in his criticism of Biden during a recent appearance on Bill Maher’s HBO show.
Costas said, “[W]hen it comes to Biden, this is like the truth that no one, until very recently, wants to say out loud. But my friends will tell you, I’ve been saying it for four years. This is Emperor’s New Clothes stuff. Joe Biden should have run on a firm promise that he would be a one-term president. The only reason he is president is that he’s not Donald Trump. Then the Dems could have gotten a lot of people up in the bullpen, and they could have sorted through those people…If Biden’s hubris is such that he doesn’t understand the best interests of his party and more important, his country, then he has to be shown the door. Period. Because if Trump is a threat to democracy, and in many ways he is, so too are the Dems who are in danger of being as feckless as the Republicans have long been shameless. If they’re going to send this guy out there, if Trump is a monster, and in many ways he is, you’re going to send this guy out to slay the dragon? I don’t think so.”
Costas is illustrating the angst that the Democrats are feeling.
They do not truly believe that Biden can win again.
Karine Jean-Pierre unloaded on The New York Times for one outrageous reason
Democrats are finally getting anxious about 2024.
Reelecting Joe Biden is not going to be as easy as they once thought.
And Karine Jean-Pierre unloaded on The New York Times for one outrageous reason.
Joe Biden’s approval ratings are historically bad for an incumbent President seeking reelection.
One of his major flaws is his advanced age, which has led to embarrassing mental gaffes.
And the Democrat-controlled media are starting to speak about it.
But Biden and the Democrat Party loyalists do not want voters to believe their lying eyes.
That’s why White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre went off on The New York Times for noticing that Biden is old.
During a press briefing on Air Force One, Jean-Pierre was asked, “[T]he publisher of The New York Times has talked about getting flak from the White House for its coverage of the President’s age. Can you talk to us a little bit about what you think is, sort of, fair game when covering the nation’s oldest President and what might be off limits?”
Jean-Pierre ranted incoherently, “That — so wh- — now, to your question, more specifically, about — about The New York Times coverage, is that — that display — what we believe a journalistic objectivity about coverage of the President’s age speaks to why we agree with former New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan, and she says, ‘Maybe The Times and other major media outlets ought to look in the mirror…Self-scrutiny and — and course correction are not among their core strengths.’ And I’ll leave it there.”
How dare The Times discuss an issue that voters are clearly concerned about?
That is the position of the Biden administration.
Even Hillary Clinton admitted that Biden’s age was “an issue.”
And Biden has done little to assuage concerns about his mental fitness.
He turned down a softball interview at the Super Bowl, and he recently confused two European leaders with their deceased predecessors.
Special Counsel Robert Hur recommended that Biden should not be prosecuted in his classified documents case, but did so on the basis that Biden is an elderly man with a bad memory.
The entire Left bristled at Hur’s characterization, then Biden confirmed by calling a disastrous impromptu press conference.
Democrats circling the wagons around Biden are hoping that attacking press outlets will be enough to ward off questions about his mental health.
So far, that strategy is not working.
