The corporate media went into emergency damage control mode after news broke Robert F. Kennedy is running for President.
The son of the late Senator Robert “Bobby” Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy will run as Democrat which means he’s looking to primary Biden.
The news broke after Kennedy filed the proper paperwork with the FEC in order to be eligible to run.
As soon as word got out he’s running, news outlets were quick to call Kennedy an anti-vaxxer and “quack”.
Take a look:

Check out what Fox News reported:
President Biden has another Democratic challenger vying for the presidency following Robert F. Kennedy Jr. filing paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday.
Kennedy, the son of late former U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of the late former President John F. Kennedy, is now the second Democrat to toss his hat into the race for the White House, joining spiritual advisor and author Marianne Williamson in seeking the party’s nomination.
A Kennedy adviser wouldn’t independently confirm his candidacy, but told Fox News Digital “the campaign will issue a statement tomorrow.”
Kennedy, a former environmental lawyer who describes himself as a lifelong Democrat and has faced criticism for his activism against the COVID-19 vaccine, sparked speculation about a potential White House run by visiting New Hampshire, which for a century has held the first primary in the presidential nomination race
“I’m thinking about it, and I’ve passed the biggest hurdle, which is my wife has green lighted it,” Kennedy said at an event at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, which for more than two decades has been a must stop for actual or potential presidential contenders from both major parties.
Robert F. Kennedy is one of the biggest advocates against the Covid-19 vaccine and vaccines in general for decades.

Watching Kennedy debate Biden on vaccines will definitely be exiting to see.
