'Battered Biden' headline backfires on 'irredeemably awful' Fox News as president boasts 63% approval
Fox News was mocked on Wednesday over a headline referring to President Joe Biden as "Battered Biden."
"Battered Biden under siege as crises confound the White House," read the headline on a report by Fox News's Keith Koffler.
"Memo to President Biden: Life moves pretty fast, and now the world is on fire," the report said.
Koffler argued without evidence that the White House is "confounded" because of problems with a fuel pipeline on the east coast, a disappointing jobs report and violence in the Middle East.
"He was ready for a rest, but the world wasn't ready to give him one," Koffler stated. "To add insult to the various injuries, there was even criticism of how Biden looked — at least when he was wearing a mask."
Many commenters quickly pointed out that Biden is enjoying a 63% percent approval rate, while others called Fox News a "propaganda outlet."

'Battered Biden' has a 63% approval rating, something Fox News's orange-visaged overlord could only wet-dream about in Mar-a-Loco:https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/1392436139047497733\u00a0\u2026— LaurenBaratzLogsted (@LaurenBaratzLogsted) 1620823577
Battered Biden has a 63% approval rating, you twit.\n\nYour mancrush barely broke 45 while saying 15 covid patients would "go down to zero very quickly." So have a seat and calm down. Maybe try one of Dr. Donald's miracle man woman person tv camera bleach injections.— Bill Harnsberger (@Bill Harnsberger) 1620823411
Oh you poor demented souls. \u201cBattered Biden\u201d??? With a 63% approval rating I think he\u2019s looking pretty good for somebody you called battered. What a sick bunch you all are, trying to create your own reality (show).— MaineNHBlue (@MaineNHBlue) 1620823398
Ya'll are living in an alternate universe. Biden has 63% job performance rating as of a couple days ago. Hardly indicates a battered presidency. Why can't you guys just tell the truth?— Caroline Siverson (@Caroline Siverson) 1620823275
\u201cBattered Biden\u201d enjoys almost double the approval rating of Trampy Trump.https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/1392436139047497733\u00a0\u2026— Sophie Wants Trump to Pay (@Sophie Wants Trump to Pay) 1620822914
Oh stop it. Biden's handling of the vaccine rollout proves he's capable of handling crises. The massive reduction in kids in custody at the border shows that is a work in progress. The Mideast has been in crisis ever since Jesus.— Kenner At Home \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8\u26bd (@Kenner At Home \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8\u26bd) 1620817983

I'm pretty sure Israel isn't the 51st state. Oh, and the Iron Dome defense system the IDF is using is thanks to Obama/Biden administration.— Lee Belote (@Lee Belote) 1620819570
I don\u2019t understand how Trump could\u2019ve left the nation\u2019s infrastructure so vulnerable to hackers...\n\nOh wait..https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/01/12/trump-names-rudy-giuliani-as-cybersecurity-adviser/\u00a0\u2026— Fred Davies \ud83d\udd0d (@Fred Davies \ud83d\udd0d) 1620817817
