A publisher of the New York Times defended the newspaper’s coverage of President Biden’s age amid criticism from the White House and others.

A.G. Sulzberger acknowledged the Times has reported extensively on Biden being the oldest president at 81 years old and his low approval ratings.

“He is a historically unpopular incumbent and the oldest man to ever hold this office. We’ve reported on both of those realities extensively, and the White House has been extremely upset about it,” Sulzberger said.

He said the White House was upset by this coverage but the Times will cover both Biden and Trump fully and fairly.

Some felt the age coverage was excessive given Biden’s memory was described as poor in the Mueller report.

However, Sulzberger denied the coverage is lopsided, saying while Trump’s legal issues differ from Biden’s age, reporting both realities is important for maintaining public trust.

He argued hyping one side or downplaying the other would undermine credibility in the long run.
