Kamala Harris complains that the media doesn’t adequately cover the “strength of my leadership.”

At the end of her second year in office, Vice President Kamala Harris once again complained that the press was not reporting fairly about her.

‚ÄúThere are things I’ve done as vice president that fully demonstrate the strength of my leadership as vice president that haven’t received the kind of coverage that I think [the] Dobbs [decision] received,” Harris told Washington Post liberal columnist Jonathan Capehart earlier this week.

The VP was slammed in February for appearing “constantly unprepared” after delivering what critics called a “word salad” speech in Munich. However, Capehart said Harris’ speech in Munich was one of her top three accomplishments for 2022, part of a gushing article declaring Harris had an “excellent” year.

Harris lamented that the trip did not receive the press coverage she felt it deserved.

“What you could see is based on what’s being covered,” she told Capehart.

The columnist revealed that he has known Harris for a decade and claimed she was right about sometimes finding her media coverage unfair.

“Harris is right about that. Despite having a television and print pool reporter at most of her public events, the vice president attracts little attention. Sometimes the office is frustrating – as one of her predecessors famously put it, “not worth a bucket”. of warm, um, spit,'” Capehart wrote.

“And a lot of the attention she’s received, particularly in her freshman year, has been rough. Attrition stories were routinely hyped as clutter in narratives that unfairly questioned Harris’ competence,” he added.

The columnist, an avid Democratic Party booster, was one of the few journalists to conduct a one-on-one interview with President Biden this year.

The mass exodus of staffers from the vice president’s office earlier in the year was ignored by ABC, NBC and CBS, according to a media watchdog.

Capehart suggested that Harris’ reporting was negatively influenced by her ethnicity and gender.

“[T]The nation’s first black woman and first South Asian vice president has also had to contend with the negative reactions and low expectations that come with harrowing entrenched ideas about who should hold the position,” he wrote.

Harris previously complained that she would receive more favorable coverage if she were a white male like all of her predecessors in that position, the New York Times reported last December.

Capehart praised Harris for a “banner year”.

“President Biden’s right-wing election ma’am is ending a banner year of domestic barnstorming and high-wire diplomacy,” he propagated.

One of Harris’ key posts, the southern border, remains a sore point for administration. Biden has still not visited him since taking office, even as the besieged border worsens as the Supreme Court orders a temporary moratorium on the expiration of Covid-era Title 42.

Harris has been tasked with managing the crisis but has not visited him since June 2021.

In recent comments to NPR, Harris accused Republicans of being “unwilling to embark on meaningful reform” that would solve most border problems.
