Joe Biden broke his drought of media interviews this weekend, appearing on "60 Minutes."
The interview, much as we expected, was a complete joke.
As usual, almost zero pushback against the lies that Joe Biden continues to spew when he opens his mouth.
CBS's Scott Pelley conducted the interview, which could not have been softer.
In many cases, Pelley was justifying Biden's actions in the set-up of the question.
First and foremost, Pelley did not even touch on the issues at the southern border.
He was soft on Hunter Biden, and did not push back on Biden saying the pandemic is over even though the CDC and WHO have not changed the designation as a health crisis.
NewsBusters analyst Kevin Tober stated, "From the very start, it was clear why Biden chose Pelley to conduct his first sit-down interview in months.
"Right out of the gate and until the last minute, Pelley gushed and sucked up to Biden in embarrassing fashion.
"Once Pelley was finished with his servile opening introduction for Biden, he began by asking the president a series of questions about the economic calamity Biden has caused.
"Although, Pelley didn't frame it that way. Instead, Pelley let Biden get away with his lies on the economy and his refusal to admit the United States is in a recession."
OutKick founder Clay Travis focused on the pandemic being declared over, stating, "Left wingers are going to be furious at him for this, but this is also interesting because less than a month ago he justified canceling a trillion dollars in student loans by citing his covid emergency powers."
Conservative pundit Stephen L. Miller stated, "Biden used emergency covid declaration to enact student loan forgiveness and this is why Scott Pelley is a bad journalist and interviewer."
The gushing by Pelley over Biden was shameful.
At one point, Pelley asked Biden, "You have lived a long life of triumph and tragedy. In November, you'll be 80. And I wonder what it is that keeps you in the arena?"
When Pelley described Joe Biden as both pro-abortion and a "devout Catholic," well, that was the breaking point for many, as the two simply do not go together.
Tober backed up my analysis, stating, "This kind of media praise would make state-controlled media in North Korea blush. Pelley would make a terrific 'news anchor' at a North Korean or Chinese state media outlet."
When I saw the interview, my first observation was that it seemed like White House personnel supplied Pelley with his script.
After watching it a second time, I am convinced that was the case.
