The press conitinues to paint Biden as a goof

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Boy, this anti-Biden media narrative has really picked up steam. It has nothing to do with the substance of Biden the candidate, but rather the style. And doesn't that just perfectly captures the determined un-seriousness of campaign journalism?

Over at TNR, one of its its blogs mocked Biden's recent claim that a helicopter he was riding in during an Afghanistan visit was forced down. It "could teeter into Hillary-in-Bosnia territory," TNR announced. See, the assumption was that gaffe-prone Biden made up the silly story.

Except that he didn't. The helicopter story is accurate.
