Biden takes questions – but only from pre-selected reporters

President Trump took questions from anyone in a press corps that almost uniformly hated him. President Biden needs the reporters, who almost uniformly like him, to be selected for him anyway.

According to Fox News:

President Biden held his first formal White House press conference on Monday, but most of the questions asked were from reporters that were pre-selected by his team.

Following his remarks about his “Made in America” manufacturing initiative, a member of Biden’s staff was heard calling on specific reporters to ask their questions to the president, something that was similarly done during the 2020 presidential election and the transition period. The pre-selected reporters came from The Associated Press, The Washington Post, NBC News, Reuters, and Bloomberg News.

Biden did, however, offer an impromptu question to Fox News’ Peter Doocy, whom he teased for always asking him tough questions and always has an edge to them,” but added he likes him anyway.

  1. Remember the collective seizure the press had when Neill Monroe of the Daily Caller interrupted Obama in the Rose Garden? It was a scandal par excellence. Obama’s treatment by the press was like nursery school — it will be the same for Biden.

    Already I’m hearing the reinvention of history — how challenging the questions for Obama were. The MSM must think we’re aliens just arriving on planet Earth.
