Joe Biden, like most Democrats in office, enjoys glowing coverage from the MSM media.
Much like when Obama was in office, the media seems to be handling old Joe with kid gloves.
But that, apparently, isn’t good enough for Transparent Joe. His press secretary is evasive, even on basic questions. Biden has done only ONE press conference in his first 100 days.
And now, it looks like Joe wants to be even less forthcoming to the media than before. Because it seems he will only let them quote him, if he approves it.
From Western Journal:
Members of the White House media pool are growing increasingly frustrated with the Biden administration’s apparently common practice of demanding to approve quotes before they are published by reporters…
This week, a Politico report revealed five separate White House reporters who work for other outlets and said they are frequently granted White House interviews only on the condition that they agree to what is known colloquially as “background with quote approval.”
Who pathetic is that? Not only is Joe providing the least amount of coverage than any president we’ve seen, but he wants to “approve” of what reports say about him after they interview him.
Talk about 1984! First, Joe doesn’t even like to answer the media’s questions. Ever since the election, his people have controlled interviews and appearances with an iron grip.
Now, he wants to control what reporters report on, when they get the chance to report on him!
This is getting so absurd, it’s like an SNL sketch.
Plenty of people suspected Joe doesn’t like interviews, because of his many gaffes, memory lapses, and tendency to bend the truth.
Some say it’s because of his failing mental health. His handlers restrict access, out of fear of what he might say.
But for the administration to want to approve quotes before they go out? It’s a paranoia you’d expect from a failing dictatorship, not the Land of the Free.
It’s getting so bad, even liberal outlets are starting to complain.
Hmm… maybe this will finally get the press to start being honest about failed Democrat leaders. Maybe these clowns are deserving of your spin, eh reporters?
Nah, forget that. They’ll still bend over backward to protect this guy… just because he isn’t Trump!
- White House reporters are being forced to get approval before quoting Joe Biden.
- MSM outlets are growing frustrated at the strict control of the administration.
- Joe Biden has long avoided the media, despite promising transparency.
