President Biden Calls on Journalists to Report ‘The Right Way’

Biden Lashes Out at Media Amid Unpopularity, Blames Negative Coverage for Lagging Poll Numbers

President Joe Biden is expressing frustration with the news media as his poll numbers continue to slide and his popularity wanes. Departing the White House for Camp David on Saturday, the 81-year-old Democrat criticized the media for distorting the state of the economy, according to Fox News.

Responding to a journalist’s question about next year’s economic prospects, Biden insisted, “All good. Take a look. Start reporting it the right way.”

Despite Biden and left-wing media outlets assuring the public that the economy is strong, the “Bidenomics” agenda has become a stain on the president’s record. His tenure has seen rampant inflation, fueling price hikes that have left many Americans struggling to make ends meet and unable to build wealth.

The housing market has been particularly harsh under Biden, with Forbes reporting that home sales are at lows not seen since 2008, and 2023 is on pace to be the least affordable time to buy a home on record.

Biden’s economic performance could be one factor contributing to his declining poll numbers. A New York Times/Siena poll released in November found that voters in critical swing states prefer former President Donald Trump’s handling of the economy to that of Biden.
This discontent extends across partisan lines, with a recent Fox News poll revealing that a majority of Democrats, 61 percent, agree with Republicans and independents that the economy is in bad shape.

In a potential rematch with Trump, Biden trails by more than 2 percentage points, according to the Real Clear Polling aggregate.

It is clear that Biden’s dissatisfaction with the media’s coverage of the economy could be tied to his own political concerns. As the economy continues to be a significant issue for American voters, the president is facing an uphill battle as he seeks to improve his standing ahead of next year’s presidential election.
