KENNEDY: Sound the alarm, Joe! Biden's only fit to serve at the nursing home's ice cream buffet was finally realized by America's ardent Left-wing media, and Kamala's was as popular as headlice in a hat shop. Well, why did they take so long?, February 24, 2024
Joe Biden has lost it. No, not his brain. That cream was cut decades ago. The New York Times and the dreary Daily Show lead the way for the most fervid and froth cheerleaders, who are now fleeing the wreckage and cautiously raising the alarm. What on Earth took them so long? Why are the liberals finally awakening to wet beds and announcing that, perhaps, their collapsing candidate has departed from his moorings? You have to give them credit: they clung on and clung on as long as they could - inventing every excuse and ruse that suited them. That Young Joe was raring to go, claims of senility were a MAGA witch hunt, and haven't you seen how fabulous Kamala is?

Despite the White House's being "highly outraged" after liberal-leaning newspaper pointed out his inability for a second term, the New York Times doubles down on its scathing opinion pieces condemning Biden, February 20, 2024
According to New York Times Publisher A.G. Sulzberger, the White House is "deeply distraught" with the newspaper's coverage of President Biden's age. Despite the White House's dissatisfaction, Sulzberger maintains that the newspaper will continue reporting objectively on both Biden and Trump. Some have criticized Biden's age and poor approval ratings, with others suggesting that the coverage has been overly sensationalized. Sulzberger has stated that the intention is not to equate Biden with Trump, but rather to highlight both aspects honestly in order to maintain public confidence.

When the board holds crunch talks late into the night, Harvard's annears contract to under fire President Claudine Gay KEEP her position, December 12, 2023
Despite outrage over her Congressional testimony refusing to properly condemn antisemites on campus, Harvard President Claudine Gay seems to be set to keep her position. A decision is likely on Tuesday, but sources indicate she will continue to lead the Ivy League university after meetings that lasted late until Monday. Since her first appearance in Congress, she has been continually chastised. Bill Ackerman, a megadonor, told Gay that he will keep his job.
