When President Joe Biden stepped off of Marine One this morning after spending yet another weekend at his beach house in Delaware, he approached waiting reporters and took a few questions. He brought up the latest from Ukraine and called Vladimir Putin a war criminal, something the White House will probably walk back later today. So it’s funny that Putin is a war criminal, but Rupert Murdoch is “the most dangerous man in the world.” Then again, Biden is senile and has the nuclear codes, so that makes him the most dangerous man in the world.
Biden: Rupert Murdoch “most dangerous man in the world” https://t.co/xIhuDJfZOH

The revelations come from a new book, The Hill reports:
President Biden reportedly decried Fox News owner and media magnate Rupert Murdoch as the “most dangerous man in the world,” according to new reporting in a forthcoming book by a team of New York Times reporters.
Excerpts from the book “This Will Not Pass,” by journalists Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns obtained by CNN reveal Biden assessed Fox News “as one of the most destructive forces in the United States.”
The book reportedly describes Fox News as a “torrent of anti-Biden programming, stoking skepticism about vaccines and disseminating wild conspiracy theories about the January 6 attack.”
Biden’s alleged comments to Martin and Burns are the first the president has ever made publicly about Murdoch, CNN noted
Don’t overlook Murdoch’s ownership of the New York Post, which broke the Hunter Biden laptop story, which we suppose would be considered “anti-Biden programming.”

Translation: Don’t be critical of Joe Biden and definitely don’t own the outlet that exposed the corruption on Hunter Biden’s laptop…Or else the most powerful man in the free world will label you the biggest threat to the free world. https://t.co/phXLaaaVEZ

Has the guy who keeps Biden from saying things quit?

Let me be the voice of reason here. @POTUS is the most dangerous man. His dramatic and rapid cognitive decline makes him the biggest threat to our country, bar none.

Notice the silence from the “journalist” who pearl clutched at Trump criticism of the press.
Here Biden basically calls Fox News and their journalist a threat to the country and Democracy and silence from the media.

Yeah, where is CNN hall monitor Brian Stelter? This is a direct attack on the press by a sitting president. Oh, that’s right, he’s taking instruction from Jen Psaki on how the media could do its job better:

Tissue? Brian Stelter REALLY fussy with Fox News for focusing on Biden’s failures and not that other story he thinks is WAY more important (but it’s not) https://t.co/lGSDlvYuAX
