Even the mainstream media is noticing that there is a bias between how journalists grill Trump during the presidential campaign while Biden is lofted easy questions designed to provide him with talking points that hope to make him look good.
Believe it or not, Politico noticed and reported the bias, as evident in a recent Biden Townhall meeting.
Afterwards, there was a flurry of negative Twitter responses to CNN’s obvious pandering to Biden’s presidential run.
When Politico accuses CNN of a softball Interview, you know there’s a problem.
This man might become POTUS, yet still, too many reporters think their role is to help make that happen instead of asking hard Qs.
The media is broken. https://t.co/VOUUJ0KR8D

Yet, some left-leaning media organizations continue to justify why these differential treatments are just fine:
In tonight's CNN newsletter of hate, Oliver Darcy defends Biden getting softball questions and not getting fact-checked because he's not the President and he's not AN UNPRECEDENTED liar like Trump.

In a nutshell, here is Biden’s ‘successful’ campaign strategy, as summed by Abigail Marone:
Joe Biden’s idea of ‘campaigning’ is hopping on his private jet once a week, traveling to a state he can’t remember the name of, reading a speech to a near empty room, and taking 0 questions.
