The New York Times Close Up with Sam Roberts- Biden and Buttigieg

Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg have not formally announced they are running for president, but both are sucking up a lot of political oxygen. Can the 76 year old Biden get past his gaffes? Can a 37 year old gay mayor of a medium size city be a viable candidate? Meanwhile, NYC Mayor de Blasio is making all the moves you’d expect from a presidential candidate. But with only a 43% job approval rating in NYC, is he a realistic candidate? Plus, a look at The Fresh Air Fund, a non-profit that’s been sending low income NYC kids for some summer fun in the country for over 100 years.

This is click bait, which is beneath CUNY and NYT. Biden was discussed for a couple of minutes in a non-substantive way, and with the exception of a tiny clip of a Buttigieg speech, he was not discussed at all. Please change the title in order to retain journalistic integrity. (My last comment about this is not being displayed, hopefully this one will)
