‘Acting Like Mob Bosses’: Kurtz Slams Media Picking 2024 Favorites

Breaking News

Proving that his show is the antithesis of Brian Stelter’s Reliable Sources, Fox News Channel’s Howard Kurtz took a flamethrower to the media for what he noticed “feels like an orchestrated campaign” to knock both former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden out of the 2024 presidential campaign before they even announce. 

Kurtz opened Sunday’s MediaBuzz proclaiming “I’ve never seen anything remotely like it, the media are trying to knock President Biden out of the running for a second term.” He added that “if the media were a political organization, as some of their critics believe, we’d say they’re carpet bombing Joe Biden, trying to damage him to the point where he can’t run again.”

Proving once again that he’s fair to both sides in his coverage, Kurtz pointed out the obvious that “the media are also attempting to disqualify Donald Trump, on grounds of shrinking support in his party. Far less surprising but still happening. The press does not want a rematch.”

Kurtz reminded viewers of the media speculation surrounding Biden’s presidency before it began:

Remember how everyone thought the media would go easy on Biden because, basically, he’s not Trump? That’s now out the window. Just look at one newspaper: Sunday’s New York Times. Biden’s age is a big problem. Polls show many Americans consider Mr. Biden too old, and some Democratic strategists do not think he should run again. Monday’s New York Times, most Democrats don’t want Biden to run in 2024 new poll shows. That figure, 64 percent. Tuesday, a Times columnist pleads with Biden not to run.  

“Tuesday’s Times, half of GOP voters ready to leave Trump behind, poll finds, and a significant number vowing to abandon him if he wins the nomination,” Kurtz said, pointing out how it’s clear the media doesn’t want either candidate to run in 2024. 

He ended his monologue by asking rhetorically “who exactly anointed journalists to try to muscle candidates out of the presidential race and more than two years early, if they’re damaged, they think they can’t win, maybe they’ll decide against running. But too many in the news media are acting like mob bosses and are sacrificing what remains of their credibility.” 

What Kurtz didn’t point out is that the media is still trying to cover for Joe Biden like they do for every Democrat President. 

But what is noteworthy is they appear to be laying the groundwork for a younger and more radical Democrat to run in 2024. 

Then the leftist media can cover for him or her without having to worry about some of Biden’s constant gaffes.

HOWARD KURTZ: I’ve never seen anything remotely like it, the media are trying to knock President Biden out of the running for a second term. It feels like an orchestrated campaign. In fact, if the media were a political organization, as some of their critics believe, we’d say they’re carpet bombing Joe Biden, trying to damage him to the point where he can’t run again. 

And by the way, the media are also attempting to disqualify Donald Trump, on grounds of shrinking support in his party. Far less surprising but still happening. The press does not want a rematch. Remember how everyone thought the media would go easy on Biden because, basically, he’s not Trump? That’s now out the window. Just look at one newspaper: Sunday’s New York Times. Biden’s age is a big problem. 

Polls show many Americans consider Mr. Biden too old, and some Democratic strategists do not think he should run again. Monday’s New York Times, most Democrats don’t want Biden to run in 2024 new poll shows. That figure, 64 percent. Tuesday, a Times columnist pleads with Biden not to run, and then there’s the former President. 

Tuesday’s Times, half of GOP voters ready to leave Trump behind, poll finds, and a significant number vowing to abandon him if he wins the nomination. Trump’s response, this is good, the failing New York Times is down 40 percent year to date because they are fake news. Their reporters are dishonest. They hate our country. The New York Times is truly the enemy of the people. 

Now, of course, the media would be committing malpractice if they didn’t report on Biden’s awful poll numbers or whether the hill hearings have hurt Trump. But who exactly anointed journalists to try to muscle candidates out of the presidential race and more than two years early, if they’re damaged, they think they can’t win, maybe they’ll decide against running. But too many in the news media are acting like mob bosses and are sacrificing what remains of their credibility.
