CNN’s Brian Stelter insists that Biden’s border crisis is a manufactured “right-wing” narrative but ABC’s Jonathon Karl insists otherwise, according to Fox News.
Biden is getting pressure to visit the southern border.
Stelter accused conservative media outlets of applying this pressure.
“That is how right-wing narratives trickle into the rest of the press and they divert attention,” Stelter said.
Greg Sargent and Amanda Marcotte agreed that Republicans are “setting the agenda on immigration” and “they decide that there’s a border crisis.”
Jonathon Karl joined Stetler, Sargent, and Marcotte and was asked what he thought about the questions that were asked of Biden when he took his first solo press conference last week.
Karl said, “Watching from home, I would’ve liked to have seen, you know, more questions, certainly questions on COVID.”
“But there were good questions asked,” Karl said. “You pointed to Cecilia Vega.”

“I think that’s incredibly valuable. That is not ‘right-wing talking points.’ Cecilia had just been at the border, she had just talked to migrants who have come over — including some that said point-blank that they had come because they thought they would have better treatment now that Joe Biden was president.”
“That’s a legitimate question to put to the president and I thought that his answer was one of the more interesting moments in that press conference.”
