The coverage of the crisis at the border with Mexico, negative for Joe Biden, begins to exceed the vaccination coverage, positive, reports the Axios site.
In recent weeks, mentions of immigrants have surpassed mentions of vaccines on the top 100 U.S. news sites, monitored by the Signal AI platform. And posts at the border generated an average of 651 social media interactions, compared to 182 of those on vaccines, according to tracking company NewsWhip.
Heading the cover is Fox News, which since early March has spent five times as much time at the border as CNN and MSNBC, according to Stanford University’s Cable TV News Analyzer.
And that was before photos of underage immigrants huddled in plastic tents in Texas appeared, as Axios himself (above) showed, and then also by the Washington Post and CNN.
It is already echoing abroad, the call of the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, “the first great crisis of Joe Biden”.
In order for Mexico to retain immigrants, Biden is now even offering to “loan” AstraZeneca vaccines to the country.
But the effort began in January, with the broadcast to date of “17,118 radio spots in Brazil, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, in Spanish, Portuguese and six indigenous languages,” reports WP.
Additionally, “the State Department has worked with Facebook and Instagram to reach millions of individuals considered potential immigrants” in the region.
German financier Handelsblatt underlines that “the visit of Secretary of State Antony Blinken is full of threats”. One would be sanctions against German companies linked to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline – which is 95% ready to take Russian gas.
The visit was preceded by texts from Washington organizations like Brookings, focusing fire on Chancellor Angela Merkel.
BRITISH OR CONTINENTAL PANDEMIC
“We basically have a new pandemic, Britain’s mutation has taken over,” said Merkel, put forward by Europeans as the Italian Il Sole 24 Ore.
“On the continent there is a third wave, and experience teaches us that when a wave hits our friends, it also hits us in the back,” said Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was qualified by the British Times.
THE BIGGEST TROPHY
The new Supreme Court ruling was quickly echoed by Bloomberg (above), the Washington Post, Frenchman Le Figaro, Spain’s El País and Argentina’s La Nación, among others, with statements that the judge Sergio Moro was “biased” towards Lula “, the biggest trophy”.
