  • Vox’s coverage of the speech focused on the theatrics of it and the Biden administration’s overall coronavirus strategy, comparing it to what it characterized Trump’s performance as “erratic.”
  • CNN glowed with pride and awe over the speech, unapologetically placing all blame on the Trump administration (not mentioning that the Trump administration was already on pace for Biden’s vaccination goals) while fawning over Biden’s message of “unity”.
  • The New York Times said the speech was meant to kickstart a campaign of building support for larger, non-coronavirus agenda items like expanding government intervention in the healthcare industry.
