New York Post: The Latest Conservative Outlet to Mislead by Reporting on a Clearly Edited Joe Biden Clip

Conservative media has long been desperate for Joe Biden to do or say something controversial. It was easy with Donald Trump, he did something insane on a near-daily basis. But the current Democratic president isn’t giving GOP media much. So instead, the MAGA world has decided to produce their own controversy.

Last week, a clearly doctored clip of Joe Biden referring to Satchel Paige as a great Negro was repeatedly shown on Fox News. The video made it on the air despite the fact that Biden’s hand disappeared as he spoke.

Yesterday, the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post also decided to get in on the action. The paper reported on an edited clip where they claimed the president had a “Ron Burgandy” moment.

The clip, originally shared by Clay Travis, showed  Biden saying “end quote” at the end of the sentence. The implication was that the president was just reading every word on the screen, similar to Will Ferrell’s character in Anchorman.

In reality, the line was clipped in from another moment in Biden’s presser. Earlier, the president had read a quote about the supply chain and said ‘end quote’ to make the end.

The paper was quickly called out. AJ Delgado noted, “You absolutely uneducated morons. It’s because when you’re QUOTING someone, as he is doing, it’s customary to say ‘Begin quote’ and ‘end of quote’ to delineate when you began/stopped quoting what they said. Such a despicable rag, you are..”
