Media on the left may have started out squarely on Biden’s side, but some are noting a shift in the relationship. As war, inflation and COVID-19 rage on, certain outlets are now leaning more negative than positive. Straight Arrow News contributor Newt Gingrich argues that without power to change policy, elite left-leaning media is now focused on changing its words:

One of the most interesting developments has been the elite media on the left losing favor about Joe Biden. Whether they’re worried because they think if he collapses and the Democrats collapse, liberalism will collapse with them, or what the reasoning is, I’m not sure.

So in the last few days, you’ve had a series of columns and articles and commentaries on television, about the disarray in the White House. The sense that Biden is unhappy with his staff, his staff is unhappy with Biden, Biden and Harris are sort of disliked each other and particularly, Mrs. Biden, dislikes come out.

So there’s, there’s something going on there. And I think part of it is they can’t solve anything. The core problem they face is that the things they believe in don’t work, the values they have don’t work and aren’t acceptable to most Americans. And so we’re faced with a very interesting and very different environment than they thought they would be.

So since they can’t change their policies, and they can’t change their beliefs, they’re focused on changing their words. But what is it you say that’s going to be effective? When somebody goes out and pays $8 a gallon for gasoline? As a friend of mine said the other day, for the first time, he paid over $100 to fill up his tank. What do you say when parents tell you, they can’t find baby formula. And as one woman said, in western Pennsylvania, she can’t afford to drive to five or six different stores, because she can’t pay for the gasoline to go find the baby formula. And you have this compounding sense of things not working. 

All of this is coming together. And I think it is going to lead to a very difficult and very interesting summer for Joe Biden.

Whether they’re worried because they think if he collapses and the Democrats collapse, liberalism will collapse with them, or what the reasoning is, I’m not sure. It could also be just that when the gap between the fantasy world that Biden seems to live in, and the reality in California, for example, of $1, a gallon gasoline gets to be so big, that the media begins to worry that they can’t be too far away from reality, if in fact, they’re going to be believed by anybody.

And you have this compounding sense of things not working. And then you have a skyrocketing crime rate. And you have people who it’s beginning to sink in that left wing district attorneys are putting back on the street, really dangerous people. And you’re seeing that result in very aggressive predators. Some of them are just playing crazy, going out such as the guy who threw gasoline on homeless person and set them on fire. That guy was out on bail, and had a long rap sheet. All of these different things coming together. And that doesn’t even get you to the border, where problems are occurring. And I think we’re beget we’re about to see the cumulative effect worldwide. The Ukrainian Russian will withdraw of wheat and fertilizer from the world market, which is going to lead to dramatic level of crisis, as people literally are will be starving in some of the poorer countries, the huge problem. All of this is coming together. And I think it is going to lead to a very difficult and very interesting summer for Joe Biden.
