How most of the left-leaning US media totally ignored Biden's Air Force One stumble - while the foreign press did their job for them

Major U.S. press outlets largely avoided mention of Biden tripping repeatedly

As of Friday afternoon, the home pages of MSNBC, CBS News, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and New York Times had no mention of Biden's stumbles

Foreign outlets appeared far more interested, devoting prominent coverage

US outlets including Drudge Report, TMZ and Fox News broke domestic blackout

It contrasted with breathless coverage of Trump's ginger steps at West Point

US conservatives accused the press of a double standard favoring Biden

Liberals scoffed that everyone trips sometimes, claiming Biden's fall is not news
[So Trump's stumble wasn't news either?]
