Joy Reid’s hot mic moment on MSNBC where she blasted President Biden for “starting another f*cking war” just lays bare the hypocrisy and double standards rampant in the mainstream media. It’s no secret that folks like Reid have been peddling a soft approach towards Biden, often glossing over his administration’s blunders. But here we have Reid, caught off-guard, showing her true colors – and it’s not the rosy picture of Biden she usually paints on air.
It’s laughable, really. Reid and her ilk have spent years slamming Trump at every turn, never missing a chance to criticize his policies, his words, everything. Yet, when Biden’s in the hot seat, suddenly it’s a different tune. They try to protect him, to cover up the mess he’s making, but every now and then, the truth slips out. This hot mic incident is a prime example – Reid is clearly frustrated with Biden, but on air, she’s all about defending him and attacking Republicans.
And what’s this about Biden saying he’d shut down the border? Suddenly he’s tough on immigration? Where was this stance all these years as our southern border turned into a chaotic mess under his watch? It’s all talk, no action with Biden, and yet the media, Reid included, just lap it up.
This incident should be a wake-up call for anyone still buying into the mainstream media’s narrative. They’re not about the truth; they’re about pushing their agenda, protecting their favored politicians, and keeping the public in the dark. Reid’s outburst, though she tried to walk it back with a half-hearted apology, shows the frustration even Biden’s supporters are feeling – yet they’re too spineless to say it outright on air.
Lmfao Joy Reid gets caught on a hot mic as a clip of Biden is playing in which she says “starting another fucking war.”

It’s high time we call out this blatant media bias and demand better. We deserve journalists who will hold all politicians accountable, not just those on one side of the aisle. Reid’s hot mic moment is just a glimpse behind the curtain of the media’s performance – and it’s clear the script is all about protecting Biden, no matter how badly he’s screwing up.
