Bannister went on to note how many Americans saw the glaring double standard in the press: “Overall, 58% of all voters say the news media are less aggressive in questioning Biden than they were in questioning Trump, while just 17% think the media are tougher on Biden.” He pointed out that even “more than a third (38%) of Democrats concur that Biden is being treated better.”
