(WatchDogReport.org) – When the White House holds a daily briefing, it’s supposed to be the time when the media is allowed to freely ask questions. It’s recently come to light that President Joe Biden’s press secretary allegedly expects special treatment from the Liberal media.
According to a February 1 report by the Daily Beast, Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s communications team has been asking the media for their questions prior to briefings. The reporters were reportedly so alarmed by the administration trying to get the questions in advance that it was brought up during a White House Correspondents Association Zoom on Friday, January 29. The press pool was allegedly told to ignore any such requests.
One correspondent said it’s not really “free press” if the president’s team is getting to “pick and choose” what questions they’re going to answer.
Reporters should not submit questions ahead of time. Nor should they police other reporters, nor should they act as those that they cover are their friends. Period. https://t.co/0fjSCRJGyZ

Imagine the press’ reaction if Donald Trump’s team was demanding to know the questions in advance. This would be a major headline in every newspaper across the country. Now, it’s barely a blip in the radar under the Biden administration. If that isn’t proof of media bias, what is?
