Critics Call Out WaPo for its Biased Coverage of Biden After Blasting Trump for Years

The Washington Post is coming under fire for its friendly coverage of Biden’s “migrant centers for children” after repeatedly attacking the Trump administration for its “kids in cages.” A recent story from WaPo titled, “First migrant facility for children opens under Biden” was far kinder to Biden than the coverage the publication gave to his predecessor.

According to Fox News:

“Dozens of migrant teens boarded vans Monday for the trip down a dusty road to a former man camp for oil field workers here, the first migrant child facility opened under the Biden administration,” the Post reported from Carrizo Springs, Texas. “The emergency facility — a vestige of the Trump administration that was open for only a month in summer 2019 — is being reactivated to hold up to 700 children ages 13 to 17.”

The Post continued, “Government officials say the camp is needed because facilities for migrant children have had to cut capacity by nearly half because of the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border has been inching up, with January reporting the highest total — more than 5,700 apprehensions — for that month in recent years.”

Headlines from 2018 include, “The American tradition of caging children,” and “The real reason we’re locking children in cages.”

Even the Post’s editorial board as recently as September 2020 wrote, “The tableaux of caged migrant children, torn from their parents’ arms, should be among the most enduring images produced by the president’s policies” in a piece warning about what Trump’s immigration agenda in a second term would look like.

It wasn’t long before critics called out the publication for its obvious bias.

That’s something the media forgets whenever it mentions the cages.

So the Washington Post does not believe that a hostage situation involving small innocent children should be addressed as such, or was there a misquote? Patriot #Dotty🌌

I expect nothing else from the ‘fake news’ outlets. They don’t even seem to know that Obama/Biden built the cages and filled them with children years ago. Two sides to every story. Why should they bother to tell the truth when easier for them to fabricate their own side!

AHhhhhh, bunch of Hypocrites! And they are letting in many without Covid tests and letting them go into the USA’s interior. Just wonderful (SARCASM) and believe many carry a much more contagious variant of the virus based on the much higher # of deaths along the southern border!

Love the selective memory of the left. WaPo and other “news” organizations wanted to blame Trump for those cages, but the photos that were published were from when the Obama/Biden administration were in charge. Seems the writers at WaPa only want to go back as far as Trump. Mouthpiece Psacki now claims those “new” facilities were reopened due to Covid, another false fact. They weren’t new they were old and reopened. The same services being promised by this administration were also being provided during the Trump administration, but the “news” failed to report that accurately if at all.

The Obama Administration brought forth the cages. They use them to house their future voters. Its a disgrace what is happening to young children, human trafficking, pediphila, and other forms of abuse., they are brought here to drain and collapse the system. I cannot believe this country has lost every moral policy it ever had and every ounce of conscience.

WAPO is just another Media maniac that doesn’t present things as they are but always “colors” it to their liking. They are nothing but a TWO FACED RAG AND THE LESS PEOPLE THAT GO TO THEIR WEBSITE, THE SOONER THEY WILL FOLD. Believe me, NO one will miss them!

Bye bye, Ciao, Adios, Sayanora…

Do NOT use their website. All these MANIAC MEDIAS need to be erased from our Society. All they do is Misrepresent Facts. That in itself is pretty damning!

Why is it that Democraps think they are so innocent when it’s their very own democrap President who put those nasty child cages at the border?

It wasn’t any Conservative President, but obamalama. That’s “his” democrap dirty work and yet when there was discussions about P.T. perhaps using them, the whole deluded dumbobrained Democraps start screaming and yelling how cruel those cages are. 🤯

Wow! Are dem’s brains really that messed up that they forgot obamalama created those cages OR DO THE DEMS JUST GET OFF RAGGING ON OUR PRESIDENT 24/7? Personally, I think it’s both!
