The New York Post, allegedly a major American newspaper, not only printed a very dishonest story, they put it on the front page. 

"where he inexplicably wandered off, forcing Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni to steer him back to the other world leaders"

800

In this first image from the video, exactly ten seconds before Meloni took Bidens arm, we see Meloni in the pink suit noticing that the camera man is ready to take the group picture. Notice how many of the other world leaders are looking toward the camera.  That would be none. 

800

In this second image Meloni, knowing the camera was ready, has moved to the front of the group. Notice that none of the other leaders are looking at the camera at this point. Biden, a few feet away is giving a thumbs up to troops who took part in the skydive who have assembled outside of the video's view. 

800

As Meloni starts to organize the group photo she notices that Biden has his back turned and goes to him and takes his arm to let him know it is time for the picture. The other world leaders still have not faced the camera for the group photo. This is exactly 10 seconds after Meloni noticed the camera man was ready. 

800

They all line up for the group picture. 

-

Biden did not "wander off".  He saw activity from soldiers and walked a few feet over to acknowledge them. 

He didnt keep the others waiting, as almost all of them were chatting and looking in the same direction Biden was, until Meloni lined them up. 

The New York Post has become the worst of the worst, an RNC and Trump tool masquerading as a legitimate newspaper.

The New York Post has become the worst of the worst, an RNC and Trump tool masquerading as a legitimate newspaper. 

I remember when, long ago, The Post was a progressive paper. Yes-- on the left of the political spectrum. 

I just googled it-- Its been around a long time, and has gone through many changes: A few excerpts from the Wikipedia article:

The  New York Post  was founded in 1801 by  Alexander Hamilton , a  Founding Father  who  George Washington  appointed as the nation's first  Secretary of the Treasury .

n addition to literary and drama reviews,  William Leggett  began to write political editorials for the  Post . Leggett's espoused a fierce opposition to  central banking  and support for the organization of labor unions. 

In 1881,  Henry Villard  took control of the  Evening Post  and  The Nation , which became the  Post ' s weekly edition.

In 1897, both publications passed to the management of Villard's son,  Oswald Garrison Villard , [23]  a founding member of both the  NAACP [24]  and the  American Anti-Imperialist League .

In 1934,  J. David Stern  purchased the paper, changed its name to the  New York Post , [26]  and restored its broadsheet size and liberal perspective. [11] : 292   For four months of that same year, future  U.S. Senator  from  Alaska   Ernest Gruening  was an editor of the paper.

In 1939,  Dorothy Schiff  purchased the paper.  Under Schiff's tenure the  Post  was seen to have liberal tilt, supporting trade unions and social welfare.

 In 2005, it was reported that Murdoch bought the newspaper.

In 2017, the  New York Post  was reported to be the preferred newspaper of  U.S. president   Donald Trump , [49] [50]  who maintains frequent contact with its owner Murdoch. [50]  The  Post  promoted Trump's celebrity since at least the 1980s. [51]

Weeks after Trump was defeated and  sought to overturn the election results , the  Post  published a front-page editorial, asking Trump to "stop the insanity", stating that he was "cheering for an undemocratic coup", writing, "If you insist on spending your final days in office threatening to burn it all down, that will be how you are remembered. Not as a revolutionary, but as the anarchist holding the match." The  Post  characterized Trump attorney  Sidney Powell  as a "crazy person", and his former national security advisor  Michael Flynn 's suggestion to declare martial law as "tantamount to treason." [53] [54]

Thanks for the history lesson of the Post.  Interesting.  You see the downfall of course when Murdoch bought the paper and now it is just a tabloid, worse than the National Enquirer.  I think the National Enquirer got some stuff correct once in a while.

RIGHT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by appealing to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information but may require further investigation.   See all Right-Center sources.

  • Overall we rate the New York Post on the far end of Right-Center Biased due to story selection that typically favors the Right and Mixed (borderline questionable) for factual reporting based on several failed fact checks.

Even happier knowing that, despite Biden's team interference, that laptop helped convict Hunter!

The Post reported the Laptop Story correctly, the Times and Post called it Russian disinformation among many other mistakes made the "|actual journalists" covering covid/russia investigation etc. I think you have it backwards.

MBFC is just the opinion of a pundit who by training is an occupational therapist. None of the volunteers who help him are actual journalists. It's not objective, despite its pretty little graphs to make it look like it is.  The author's opinion have no more validity about then any other self appointed expert.  But people like the illusion of an authority, I guess.

The whole point is trying to make Biden look old, angry, stupid, confused, out of touch, and unfit to be president. 

Biden makes it easy because is all of those things. So don't blame the messenger for pointing out the truth.

By the way, this is same thing that the left does to Trump.
