“Appalling to Watch”: Here’s How Foreign Media Covered Biden’s G7 Summit Performance

 

It’s no secret that American media has an agenda to push.

Our mainstream media is clearly aligned with the Democrat party.

There’s no question about it.

So sometimes if you want the truth of the matter, you have to look at foreign news sources.

According to American media, Joe Biden’s performance at the G7 summit was a “success.”

As they put it, “America is back.”

However, according to foreign media, Biden’s performance was terrible.

In Australia, they used this phrase:

Appalling to watch.

 

Fortunately, the fine folks at PJ Media have a compilation of what the international press is saying:

Thank goodness for the press, or we’d never know the truth about Presidentish Joe Biden and his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad G7 meeting.

Not the American press, mind you — here in America, at least in 90% of the national news media, we hardly bother anymore with little things like honest journalism that seeks the truth and lets the chips fall where they may.

I love the Daily Mail’s tabloid sensibility, which when covering the absurdity that is American politics in the 21st century, is really the only proper sensibility.

To point: Joe Biden repeatedly mixes up Syria and Libya while discussing ways of working with Russia in latest press conference blunder ahead of meeting with Putin.

The 78-year-old gaffe machine spoke of working with Vladimir Putin to provide economic assistance to the people of Libya, prompting some confused glances from the press pack at the G7 summit in Cornwall, England.

‘I’m hopeful that we can find an accommodation where we can save the lives of people in — for example, in — in Libya,’ the president said, mentioning the north African country for the third time instead of Syria, which is in the Middle East.

The White House later brushed the confusion off.

Naturally, the White House brushed it off. That’s their job. But the American press didn’t press Jen Psaki on it, either, even though that’s exactly their job.

The UK’s Sun might not always be Britain’s most serious newspaper, but like the New York Post, they know how to have fun with serious topics.

Their latest headline reads: President greets Turkey’s Erdogan with bizarre fist bump in awkward moment ahead of meeting.

And for the cringeworthy details:

Extending out a clenched fist, Erdogan appeared confused by Biden’s gesture, first leading down towards the US president’s hand as if he was about to kiss it, before meeting it with his own fist and standing up.

The pair then shared a laugh, and Erdogan stroked Biden’s right arm.

Millions more Americans need to see this, but good luck with that.

Nobody, not even the Brits, are more obsessed with the British royal family than Americans are — sad to say. So you think there might be a little more interest shown by the domestic press in this next item: Joe Biden’s royal protocol breach: US President broke rules by revealing Queen asked him about Putin and Xi Jinping and by not taking off his sunglasses when he met monarch.

Nothing more than a minor breach of protocol? I’m no expert, but that’s my impression, yes.

If this had been Donald Trump — I hate leaning on that trope, but today I must — the American press would have whipped it up into the biggest Anglo-American donnybrook since the War of 1812.

The Times (of London) is a very serious newspaper, so I did a double-take when I saw it publish a headline far more salacious than anything you’ll usually see there: President Putin suggests that Joe Biden was being macho by calling him a killer.

It’s the eve of Biden’s summit with Putin, and Biden is calling him a killer.

It’s true. Putin is a killer and a kleptocrat, too.

But maybe that’s not the kind of thing one says out loud right before a big summit.

For what it’s worth, I read the news for a living and this is the first and only time I’ve come across this particular instance of Biden’s chronic verbal diarrhea.

But, really, it’s small beer compared to what’s really going on between the U.S. and Russia.

For that, we have to go to the very latest example of the American media’s obsequiousness. The AP just ran this bit of presidential fluffery: Biden, unlike his recent White House predecessors, has maintained Putin skepticism.

Sigh.

Biden might have maintained the appearance of Putin skepticism, but in reality, he has greatly worsened our position vis-à-vis Moscow.

Stories like the AP’s listen to the words but don’t dig for any facts.

Fortunately, we have our own human agency and intelligence.

We don’t need the media to tell us what to think. 

In America, we are supposed to have a free press.

But apparently instead of holding our government to account, Democrat media outlets want to be lapdogs for the government.

Instead of reporting the news, they want to be propagandists.

This is why the media in Australia says that it is “appalling to watch” American media’s coverage of Biden.

According to RedState:

American media is so infected with leftism that it’s ideologically slanted to the point of tipping over and it’s highly possible that the media doesn’t even know it. It doesn’t have the ability to look at itself critically, and we get very real moments where the media asks Democrats what it can do to better help them along while on air.

The media in other countries can see it, though, and Australia’s, in particular, can’t help but dedicate a segment to it.

On a segment during Sky News’s Kenny on Media, Australian anchors and commentators took aim at the American media for its simpering and fawning over Joe Biden during the G7 summit while the same media bashed President Donald Trump in 2018 against all reason.

Taking aim at CNN, in particular, the anchor compared the network reporting on Biden in 2021 vs. Trump in 2018. The difference was absolutely striking, with CNN saying that Trump was in opposition to every world leader around him, while everything about Biden seemed perfect and without trouble.

“They drive to give the illusion that he doesn’t have any disputes with any of these international leaders,” said the lead anchor.

The Australian writer Sophie Elsworth said that Biden was extremely lucky to have such loyal media on his side, and it would definitely result in higher popularity thanks to his fans in the journalist sector.

“It’s really quite appalling to watch,” said Elsworth. “And what happened to straight news reporting which doesn’t seem to be existent there?

“Trump can do no right,” added Nick Cater of the Menzies Research Center.

“There are considerable question marks over Biden’s foreign affairs policies, they’re not proven yet,” continued Cater.

Cater mentioned Trump’s strength in foreign affairs in comparison, including his show of strength against China and the Abraham accords in the Middle East. Meanwhile, Cater adds, Biden has yet to demonstrate whether or not he’ll be able to utilize America’s strength in order to make the country a leader on the global stage.

“I would be much happier to see Donald Trump at the G7, I think,” he concluded.

CNN’s ratings have been cratering to record lows in the post-Trump era. One of the reasons why is that CNN had invested itself so much into the anti-Trump narrative that Trump being removed from office would have been the worst thing for it. Sure enough, the first week of Biden’s presidency marked the beginning of a steep slide in ratings for CNN.

We don’t know about you, but we are embarrassed at our mainstream media.

No wonder their ratings are falling across the board.

Take a look at what they’re saying in Australia.

It truly is a shame!
