CJR’s Jon Allsop on “President Biden’s First Year With the Press”

From CJR’s Jon Allsop on “President Biden’s first year with the press”:

JOE BIDEN WAS INAUGURATED AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES a year ago tomorrow, and as the anniversary has approached, the “first year” takes have intensified to a deluge. These started in earnest a month or so ago, reminding me of the time that ABC assessed Biden’s first hundred days after eighty-one days (though I guess the end of his first calendar year was somewhat less arbitrary). Since then, we’ve seen photo essays, scorecards, and stats—How many judges did he appoint? How long did he spend at his homes in Delaware?—as well as analyses weighing his performance across key policy areas, from COVID-19 to the climate crisis.
