In a new report for Fox News, Howard Kurtz writes:
The media consensus is as deafening as it is overwhelming:
Joe Biden and the Democrats are headed for a catastrophic November.
They are going to be eviscerated in the midterms, an absolutely devastating wipeout.
Even Charles Blow, perhaps the most liberal columnist on the New York Times op-ed page, has a piece titled “A Biden Blood Bath?”
Blow says voters “feel stuck and angry, they’re tired and overwhelmed, and that energy is being directed at Biden.” And while he gives the president a partial pass by saying “he is being punished for not being a huckster,” that doesn’t change his gloom-and-doom prediction.
The apocalyptic headlines are just about everywhere:
Daily Beast: “Biden and Democrats Should be Absolutely Terrified by New Poll Numbers.”
Axios: “Dems Air Anxieties After Biden’s Brutal NBC Poll.”
The Hill: “Biden is Handing the Midterms to the GOP.”
CNN: “It is a pretty dark time to be a Democrat facing voters this fall.”
FROM CNN PLUS TO OAN, WHY SOME MEDIA OUTLETS ARE STRUGGLING
I’m not here to say that these analyses are wrong. Voters are fed up and the Democrats control the White House and Congress.
Yes, there are the usual caveats about how the party in power almost always loses seats in a president’s first midterm, and how plenty can change in the six months before the election.
But this media cacophony is having an echo-chamber effect, taking an awful situation for the Democrats and making it even worse. I’m not suggesting that journalists are hyping it – they are doing their jobs – but it’s a vicious cycle for Biden’s party.
The more the headlines are filled with projections of a midterm calamity, the more dejected Democratic voters will be, and more likely to stay home.
