Left-leaning journalists slam Biden admin for ‘mysterious’ reporter screenings

President Joe Biden promised on the 2020 campaign trail, repeatedly — if not incessantly — that his administration would be the “most transparent” to ever serve in the White House. The country quickly found out that, like everything else he promised, that was a blatant lie.

As a matter of fact, Biden’s White House is so shockingly the opposite of transparent that the situation has even rattled traditionally Democrat-friendly mainstream media journalists, and their most recent actions spell absolute trouble for Biden’s PR department, and perhaps his presidency.

According to several tweets, a massive group of 68 White House press reporters all signed a petition of sorts in which they demand the immediate end to what they described as a “mysterious prescreening of reporters” that happens before they’re let into Biden’s events.

“We once again respectfully request the Biden administration, without exception, re-open all of the traditional venues for presidential remarks at the White House including the east room and the south court auditorium for any reporter admitted to the White House campus,” the letter said, written by journalists who mostly represent left-leaning media outlets.

“The inability of the White House to be candid and transparent about the selection process for reporters attending his remarks undermines President Biden‘s credibility when he says he is a defender of the first amendment,” the group of reporters continued.

The letter comes at a time when it has been made crystal clear that Biden’s handlers go to great lengths in order to stop him from doing press conferences or having too much face-to-face time with eager reporters who might ask a question that he’s not prepared to properly answer, at least according to the White House script.

The Biden White House is as transparent as mud, and finally — almost two years later — most of the mainstream media is becoming fed up with it.
