Harris, Biden Mistakenly Mention 'Harris Administration'; Reports Come Mainly from Right-Rated Media

Headline Roundup September 15th, 2020

Joe Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) each mistakenly made references to a Harris-led administration at 2020 election campaign events this week. Biden mentioned "a Harris-Biden administration" Tuesday in Florida, and Harris remarked at a virtual roundtable Monday about "a Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States."

The remarks have not been covered by any left-rated media outlets as of Tuesday night. Just the News was the only center-rated source to report the story. Coverage from right-rated outlets often framed the remarks as giving credence to accusations of a ploy that involves Biden being used as a "placeholder" for an eventual Harris presidency.
