The media grills the White House about Biden’s refusal to hold formal press conferences. What is he hiding from the American people?
President Joe Biden’s presidency has been marked by his silence. The media has been questioning the White House about Biden’s refusal to hold formal press conferences. This has led to speculation about what the president is hiding from the American people.
During a press briefing on Monday, a reporter grilled White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about why President Joe Biden will not hold “formal” press conferences.
The reporter pointed to the fact that many journalists have been trying to get access to the President, but he has been avoiding them. The reporter asked if the administration was trying to protect the President from their questions. Jean-Pierre denied this, but the question remains: what is the President hiding by avoiding the press?
President Joe Biden has been avoiding formal press conferences since taking office. He has dodged questions from the press on several occasions. In one instance, he walked away from a gaggle of reporters when questions were raised about rising prices. On another occasion, he ignored a reporter who asked why he allegedly “continues to trust” the Taliban.
However when Karine Jean Pierre attempted to defend Biden’s “unprecedented” ability and frequency of answering shouted questions she had some severe difficulty selling that to the room.
These instances of the President dodging the press have raised questions about his fitness for office. Some believe that he is not in full control of his faculties and is being kept out of the public eye to avoid embarrassment. Others believe that he is hiding something and is afraid of facing tough questions from the media.
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki also avoided directly answering a question in 2021 about why Biden never took questions from Fox News “when he is given a list of reporters to call on.” This has led to speculation that the administration is trying to avoid difficult questions from conservative media outlets.
The media has been pushing for Biden to hold formal press conferences to answer their questions. The lack of access to the President has been frustrating for journalists who are used to being able to hold those in power accountable.
President Joe Biden’s silence has raised many questions among the media and the American people. Why is he avoiding formal press conferences? What is he hiding from the public? Is he afraid of facing tough questions from journalists? These questions need to be answered by the President if he wants to regain the trust of the American people. The media will continue to push for access, and he needs to be held accountable for his actions. The President needs to take responsibility for his presidency and start being transparent with the press and the American people.
