Joe Biden: Attacks on news media, courts are dangerous

Mar 02, 2017 - Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Vice President Joe Biden defended the courts and the news media, saying attacks against those institutions are dangerous.

Biden was speaking Wednesday night at the Newseum in Washington, where he accepted an award from the Bipartisan Policy Center.

News outlets report that the Democrat didn't mention Republican President Donald Trump by name but said he was worried by the "almost drumbeat of denigration of the institutional structures that govern us."
