上 可靠来源,” 主持人 Brian Stelter 问编辑委员会专栏作家 Magdi Semrau 为什么 “链接” 拜登和他的议程之间是 “破碎的。”
Semrau 断言媒体没有做 “特别棒的工作” of relaying Biden’s agenda to the American public.” 然而, the columnist also argued that American dissatisfaction with the president has to do with the pandemic and 通货膨胀, which she described as a “real problem.”
早在十月, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif。, made a similar statement after lecturing congressional reporters for not doing a good enough job “卖” Biden’s Build Back Better plan to Americans.
Pelosi said the media had not done justice to the list of items in the bill, such as Family Medical Leave. “Every time I come here, I go through the list … It is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package,” she told CBS News’ Nikole Killion.
Later in the panel, Stelter said Americans are putting their “feelings” 过度 “事实” regarding Biden’s handling of 新冠肺炎 and the economy. He added that it is “understandable” that people go with those feelings “even if the facts show us a rebounding economy.”
Writer and photographer Chris Arnade elaborated on a Substack post he wrote about why Biden and Democrats are likely “screwed” 在 2022, arguing most “Back row” Americans don’t watch politics too closely and generally perceive things negatively.
“It’s like the NFL and most people treat politics like they’ll tune in to the Super Bowl once every few years and that’s about it,” 他说. “That’s how they view politics as something, 你懂, they’re not a player in it, they’re just a watcher. They support teams. They support a side. But they don’t feel like – They don’t have a say in that much.”
Arnade went on to say the way politics affects the average American is “experiential” and that they do not “perceive things” or connect policies in the same way the media does. The panel guest was responding to a question from Stelter on whether or not he agreed with the idea that “people don’t know what’s actually going on” regarding how they are hearing and learning about the president and his agenda.
Stelter also praised Arnade’s work and mentioned how he loved the idea that “Americans perceive the news and perceive Biden is light years different from the average political panel.”
CNN有 previously sounded the alarm on Biden’s tanking poll numbers. Back in October CNN senior data reporter Harry Enten called them “not good” 和一个 “very bad sign.”
Biden’s poll numbers continue to trend in the wrong direction and stood at 36% 上个月, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll.
