PBS’s Jeffrey Goldberg Reluctant to Show Biden’s Medicare Flub


During a discussion of Thursday’s presidential debate between 2024 Republican presidential candidate former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden on PBS’s Washington Week with The Atlantic, host and Editor in Chief of The Atlantic Jeffrey Goldberg expressed hesitation to show a video of Biden’s statement that he was able to “beat Medicare.”

Goldberg attributed his reluctance to the fact that it’s “somewhat painful” to watch, regardless of one’s partisan leaning. He described the moment as the “one about 12 minutes into the debate where everybody was sort of like, oh, this is going sideways.”

When POLITICO Playbook Co-Author and White House Correspondent Eugene Daniels brought up the Medicare moment in the debate, Goldberg reiterated his reluctance, saying that it’s “painful to watch.”
