When The Washington Post wrote about the Democratic coronavirus stimulus plan supported by President Joe Biden, the object does not appear to have been objectivity.
“Biden stimulus showers money on Americans, sharply cutting poverty in defining move of presidency,” the Post proclaimed on Twitter.

“Biden stimulus showers money on Americans, sharply cutting poverty and favoring individuals over businesses,” the headline on the Post’s website proclaimed.
Not to be outdone on the positivity scale, the story then noted that the stimulus “represents one of the most generous expansions of aid to the poor in recent history, while also showering thousands or, in some cases, tens of thousands of dollars on Americans families navigating the coronavirus pandemic.”
The Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos and it shows.
This aint a shower. It’s a tiny drop in the bucket. https://t.co/FFJlnmTsNV

Creepy headline worthy of North Korea. Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post letting us know all is well— keep taking your Soma, watching Netflix, and ordering from Amazon, because Biden is “showering” us with money! https://t.co/24HJasXw0e

Are they serious?
I spent part of my youth in an impoverished home. A one-time $1,400 payment doesn’t “sharply cut poverty”. It’s a band-aid on a deep cut gushing blood.
It improves a man in poverty…for now. Then it’s right back to diving in the couch cushions for quarters. https://t.co/b4gQJCPJyA

As my friend @APompliano wisely observed, by this logic, after the previous +$4-trillion spent, the wealth gap in America would be closing, not expanding. This bill destroys the dollar, expands the wealth gap, and fails to provide the most essential stimulus checks-paychecks. https://t.co/jw9guWYVfA

Seems unbiased to me. Maybe they’ll even start hammering him with tough questions like “what’s your favorite color?”. https://t.co/Pb6MP708hX

The Washington Post’s bias is very clear.

The Biden stimulus plan was revised to address concerns of Senate Democrats so that the $1,400 checks that are a core part of its funding will go to fewer Americans than checks issued by the Trump administration.
When the tax overhaul supported by former President Donald Trump cleared Congress in 2017, The Post managed to restrain itself, with a headline that read, “Sweeping tax overhaul clears Congress.”
