The mainstream media have been going to insane lengths to protect Jill Biden.
They’re breaking their own rules.
Tucker Carlson said eight words that made Jill Biden explode in rage.
Jill Biden has a Doctorate in Education degree and because of this, the mainstream media insists on calling her Dr. Jill Biden.
It’s not normal for the media to refer to someone with an Ed.D. as a doctor.
“Mainstream news outlets generally refuse to attribute the ‘Dr.’ prefix to anyone who is not a medical doctor,” The Washington Post wrote in 2017.
Yet the media all call Jill Biden a doctor.
Joe Biden revealed once that the reason his wife got the degree was so that she would have the title.
“She said, ‘I was so sick of the mail coming to Sen. and Mrs. Biden. I wanted to get mail addressed to Dr. and Sen. Biden.’ That’s the real reason she got her doctorate,” Biden said to the Los Angeles Times in 2009.
The fact that Jill Biden is referred to as a doctor has caused members of the mainstream media to confuse her for a medical professional.
Whoopi Goldberg suggested that Jill Biden should be the Surgeon General.
“I’m hoping Dr. Jill becomes the Surgeon General, his wife,” Goldberg said in March. “Joe Biden’s wife. He would never do it but, yeah, she’s a hell of a doctor. She’s an amazing doctor.”
Yet even though calling Jill Biden a doctor is confusing,The Wall Street Journal has taken a great deal of heat for running an opinion piece stating that Jill should drop the “Dr.” from her title.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson agreed with The Wall Street Journal stating that Jill Biden was a doctor “in the same sense that Dr. Pepper is.”
“Jill Biden is one hell of a doctor, says Karen. She should be Surgeon General. Just don’t ask her to commit surgery,” Carlson said. “Don’t ask for advice on your coronary artery disease ’cause she’s not actually a physician. She’s a doctor of education, which means basically, nothing. On Friday, The Wall Street Journal pointed this out. They ran an op-ed by Joe Epstein that made a true and obvious point: Jill Biden is not a doctor, no. Maybe in the same sense that Dr. Pepper is.”
Carlson mentioned that Jill went back to get her degree in 2007 at age 55 and that Joe Biden had stated in the past that she wanted the degree solely so that she would have a title.
“In other words, Jill Biden was diagnosed with a very bad case of status anxiety, and she decided she’d cure that, as so many do in our country, with another pointless title,” Carlson continued. “That’s all true, it’s all obvious, therefore you’re not allowed to say it.”
The fact that the mainstream media is willing to rewrite the rules just for Jill Biden shows how partisan their coverage is.
