Accuracy in Media


Earlier this week, former Vice President Joe Biden tried to rope in votes this primary season, and finally made it to New Hampshire to campaign for president.

NBC reported that Biden is considered a “familiar face in unfamiliar territory in New Hampshire.” In 1988, Joe Biden was preparing to run for president as a sitting US Senator, and ultimately was never considered a front runner like he is today.

However, Biden has been caught making mistakes just simply be speaking on and off the stage in front of the media. In one instance, Biden was caught in Iowa saying that “poor kids are just as bright and as talented as white kids.” Just two days later on August 10, he was quoted stating, “Those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.”

Although CNN might have covered some of Biden’s previous gaffes buried at the end of their recent article, their writers refused to cover the latest blunder in New Hampshire.

Joe Biden was talking to a media scrum that assembled after one of his events in Keene, New Hampshire and the former vice president said, “I love this place, Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it? And what a neat town… everybody has been really friendly. I like Keene a lot.”

According to Google Maps, Keene, New Hampshire is a small town located near the southern border of New Hampshire and is considerably closer to Massachusetts than Vermont.

The error was caught on video and tweeted out by Bo Erickson who is a reporter for CBS News, reporting exclusively on the 2020 election campaigns of US Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), US Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) and former US Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.).

Many news organizations such as, The Hill, Reuters, Boston Herald, Fox News, and HuffPost all have recently reported on the latest gaffe made by none other than Biden. However, still remaining silent on the error is CNN in which has been seen favoring the former Delaware Sen. throughout its headlines
