In first 100 days, media repeatedly give Biden pass on issues they ripped Trump for

As President Joe Biden reaches his first hundred days in office, the media has had ample time to adjust to the new administration. And it has – but at the expense of issues that less than a year ago were central to their reporting.

Both Biden and Trump took office on January 20 after their respective elections, but Biden did not hold a press conference until March 25. Trump held his first on February 16 – and at the time, he was ripped [1] because “no president [had] waited longer to have a press conference.“ But when Biden took even longer, he was heralded [2] for not being an “in-your-face” president.

As Biden began to make policy decisions, the double standard became more apparent.
