Univision took a shot at its best impression of a state-run-media a la North Korea, with a propagandistic report intended to proclaim President Biden as the healthiest man alive following the White House's announcement that he had tested positive for Covid.
Citing his “latest health report” (actually from November 2021, per the story), a winded Andrea León blurted out a list of justifications for Biden's ailments, skipping his gaffes, bumbles and stumbles, and even his having said yesterday that he had cancer due to the climate crisis.
Take a look at the Univision midday news team going into full Juche mode in defense of the “eldest President in the history of the United States, and that’s why there has been a lot of speculation about his state of health since he arrived at the White House”:
BORJA VOCES: Joe Biden is the oldest president in the history of the United States, and that’s why there has been a lot of speculation about his state of health since he arrived at the White House. But what do his medical reports reveal? We go to Andrea León in the Miami studios, who has prepared a full report for us. Andrea, good afternoon; Tell us.
ANDREA LEÓN: That's right Borjita, happy to greet you. And, specifically, I'm telling you that President Joe Biden, who is 79 years old, successfully passed all of his annual medical checkups. In November of last year, his primary physician said that the president was healthy, strong and fit to govern after his last full assessment. He further said that Biden takes three prescription drugs, and two without a prescription daily. Compared to his previous checkup, at the time Biden presented increased walking stiffness due to a mild neuropathy, and a frequent cough caused by gastroesophageal reflux. But, according to the report, none of this poses a real threat to his health. President Biden practices sports five times a week, and is fond of biking. Just over a month ago he had a small accident when he was pedaling with his wife in Delaware, and his foot became entangled in the pedal so he fell to the floor. But he immediately stood up and said that he was fine. Photos and videos of that fall quickly went viral. However, Biden did not receive any medical assistance, and he returned to his duties the next day. Back to you, kids.
The President, as his primary physician said in November of last year, “was healthy, strong and fit to govern”. To anyone who has noticed the President's “increased walking stiffness,” please be aware that it is NOT due to his advanced age but to “a mild neuropathy” (nerve damage). Also, know that Biden's frequent coughs are simply caused by gastroesophageal reflux and nothing close to Covid; got it?
Last but not least, León mentioned Biden's infamous bike spill at the now dubbed “Brandon Falls” in Delaware, after which “he immediately stood up and said that he was fine.” Furthermore, our own Dear Leader did not need, or receive, any medical assistance, “and he returned to his duties the next day.”
With so-called news reporting like this, it's no wonder that the public's trust in the corporate media continues to plummet.
