Cranky Joe and Doctor Nursemaid throw HISSY at press and you’ll never believe it but press not even MAD about it!

Joe and Jill have a mad about the media and the media totally think they deserve it. How dare we? They screech into the night. But the harm is done, they made Doctor and Mister Old Geezer upset.

Apparently, the coverage by the NEW YORK TIMES wasn’t sufficiently fawning for the two ancient ones, and they are letting people know.

And that’s just tonight. The centennial couple have been unhappy for a while. Politico reported earlier this week that the White House is “privately pushing reporters” to clean up their act and and write positively about him.

There is growing frustration by the president and his family that he is not receiving the kind of generally more positive coverage they believe he deserves — that too often attention is focused on staff turnover and poor poll numbers and not a robust jobs market and America’s relatively strong economic recovery.

In addition to privately pushing reporters, the president and his team are also trying new tactics to change the prevailing storylines. Among them is an attempt to reframe the narrative around issues like inflation. His team published opinion pieces in The New York Times and Wall Street Journal in recent days under the president’s byline, attempting to share his foreign policy vision and path to lowering costs for consumers.

You might expect there to be big giant crisis headlines on CNN and lots of opining about the danger to press freedom from all the blue checks over this assault on free speech and free press and yadda yadda yadda … if he weren’t a Democrat.

But he is so, you guessed it, there ain’t.

It’s good to be a Democrat when you have to deal with the so-called press. You can do whatever you want and they just keep lining up to praise you for it.
