ABC Gushes Over the 'Genuine Love and Respect' of 'True Valentines' Joe and Jill Biden
Two years after fawning over the romance of John and Elizabeth Edwards, Good
Morning America found another Democratic couple to tout. As the song Everlasting
Love played in the background, news anchor Juju Chang profiled Joe and Jill
Biden and their "famous Washington love story." [Audio available here.]
An ABC graphic touted the Vice President and his wife as "true Valentines" in honor of the holiday and Chang declared, "But, the Bidens have a genuine love and respect for each other that's easy to see." In case viewers didn't get the point of the interview, Chang reiterated, "Yours is not only a strong marriage but a true love affair." Co-host Robin Roberts wondered how the two "keep the romance alive."
GMA has a history of eagerly promoting Democratic marriages. On August 9, 2007, reporter David Muir lauded the "very personal" pictures showing John and Elizabeth Edwards renewing their wedding vows. On July 31, 2007, GMA hosts cooed over the (now divorced) couple celebrating their anniversary at Wendy's.
