Who is Joe Biden talking about when he says “legitimate media”? Pretty much any news outlet that has referred to a 15th consecutive lousy economic report as “unexpected,” and/or Piers Morgan and Steve Kroft.

From Mediaite via Twitchy:

During a press conference on new gun laws in Philadelphia on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden spoke extemporaneously about what President Barack Obama’s administration hopes will be a push by the media to advance new gun safety measures. He said that, in an era when a variety of new and social media outlets can disseminate misinformation, it is the job of the “legitimate news media” to cover the gun control debate and identify inaccuracies.

“The president and I are going to continue to travel the country,” Biden explained, “so that what we’re proposing can’t be misrepresented.”

“To be very blunt with you, we’re counting on you – the legitimate news media — to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed,” Biden added.

Joe’s concerned that “unfriendly” media will misrepresent the facts to the country. To counter that, Biden will soon perform a national outreach so he can misrepresent the facts personally.

The administration needs all the help they can muster from loyalists in the mainstream media, because the majority of Americans aren’t buying what they’re selling on this issue.
