There’s an emerging media narrative that Joe Biden is more difficult for the press to cover than Donald Trump because Mr. Biden allegedly has superior character and therefore generates fewer scandals. Accepting this spin naturally requires one to ignore the Biden family influence-peddling business. But the fear among media executives about their own businesses is real. Bashing Donald Trump has been profitable. Can you hold an audience by lauding Joe Biden?…

Whether the medium is cable television, the internet or print, who needs a news organization that won’t challenge the people in power? Beyond the Biden family, the Times and other anti-Trump media outlets have been given another opportunity to start exercising their nonpartisan journalistic muscles again. But they don’t seem to be taking it.
