We have known for some time that Biden has little regard for the press. So little in fact that his attitude, and not answering questions when asked will go down in the history books as the most secretive presidency in history.
Western Journal writes. So much for respect for a free press. On Tuesday, a White House staffer rudely ushered the White House press pool out of a conference room. The Biden administration staffer shouted at members of the media who were barraging the president with questions at a pro-abortion “Task Force on Reproductive Healthcare Access” meeting.
There have been so many times that the press has been kicked out of meetings, or that the president refused questions that the press decided to do something about it.
New York Post reports. In July, Biden and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre did not take questions from reporters after 72 journalists signed an unprecedented letter calling for an end to the mysterious prescreening of media members.
During a single public event, reporters were shooed out mid-sentence, making questions impossible. Jean-Pierre did not hold a briefing and left the West Wing by early afternoon for a personal obligation.
July’s letter, addressed to Jean-Pierre, requested that the White House reopen to all reporters the East Room and other large indoor event spaces that during past administrations were “open press.”
For more than a year, the White House has required reporters to RSVP for events where Biden often takes questions. Those let in are picked based on a secret criteria that officials have refused to share even with leaders of the White House Correspondents’ Association.
So much for his campaign promise of the most transparent Presidency in history. Must have been opposite day when he said that, we will have to check the calendar and make sure.
