Biden KILLS PRESS FREEDOM, Now ONLY Answering Pre Approved Questions: Report
You had to know this was coming. The Biden caliphate is ruling by Executive Order, the constitution is damned. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is having the press give her the questions they intend to ask before the press briefing.
That way she can plan on how to spin the story or what questions she does not want to answer. And judging by her press briefings that entail a lot of answers to indefensible positions.
What would the press be saying if Trump had asked reporters for their questions in advance, there would be an uproar and they would call him a Nazi white supremacist dictator. But, we haven’t heard a single word of dissent because Biden is a Democrat.
Leaders of the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) have reportedly urged reporters not to cooperate but do you really believe the NYT, WaPo or CNN will oblige them?
“I often note I’m going to circle back. I hate to disappoint conservative Twitter but I’m going to circle back on a number of things as we often do directly.”
According to the Daily Beast, the Biden administration’s desire to get the questions in advance is worrisome to some reporters. These are probably young reporters who haven’t been told the ground rules when dealing with Democrats. But I am sure they will learn.
Lapdogs get promoted, honest journalists are forced to start their own websites like Sara Carter. There is no room in the media for honest reporting anymore.
One reporter raised the issue during an informal White House Correspondents Association Zoom call last Friday. According to multiple sources, leaders at the meeting advised print reporters to push back against requests by the White House press team to learn of questions in advance, or simply to not respond to the Biden team’s inquiries.
“I don’t think the press should be trying to whip up the Biden presidency and turn it into must-see TV in a contrived way,” CNN’s Jim Acosta said in an Atlantic piece published in December. In the piece, CNN reporter Daniel Dale, too, stated that his job would “not be a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week job to fact-check Biden” because “the simple reality is that Biden doesn’t lie nearly as often as Trump does.”
