Reporters consider mutiny over crazy rule that quotes from officials be approved by White House

When former President Donald Trump was in the White House, though most of the reporters who covered him were not politically aligned, they at least had the freedom to do their jobs as journalists without much White House oversight.

According to the Daily Wire, while most of the reporters covering President Joe Biden work for the mainstream media outlets that favor him, there’s reportedly mutiny on the horizon as the White House Press Corps recently expressed frustrations over a Biden administration rule that any quotes used in reports are first approved by the White House. 

As Politico reported, a number of mainstream reporters have expressed great concern over the practice, which is fair, especially as it has the optics of a state-run media tactic, where government officials have the “opportunity to edit” quotes used in a story about administration officials.

“In practice, that means the information from an interview can be used in the story, but in order for the person’s name to be attached to a quote, the reporter must transcribe the quotes they want and then send them to the communications team to approve, veto or edit them,” Politico’s report indicated.

To be fair, the rule isn’t new, as it was frequently used in the Obama administration and even during Trump’s time in office. However, the report admitted that it was much less frequently used under Trump than it was under Obama and now Biden.

“The rule treats them like coddled Capitol Hill pages and that’s not who they are or the protections they deserve,” one anonymous reporter said. “The only way the press has the power to push back against this is if we all band together.”

Interestingly, another reporter reportedly asked if any of their colleagues have brought up the idea of “mutinying” adding, “If you start fomenting an insurrection, keep me updated.”

The Politico report added that at least one group of White House reporters are holding internal talks about forming an alliance with other outlets to pressure the White House into nixing the rule.

It would be wise for those reporters and outlets to do so, as Americans already hold very little trust in the media these days. Imagine if the masses were aware of how much control the White House has right now over news stories related to administration officials? It definitely wouldn’t be good for business.

  4. So the democrat minions are now being attracted by their own party. What goes around comes around so, Now lets circle back since the democrats like to circle back and see why the American people doesn’t trust the media they covered up al kinds of corruption made up reports without solid proof and gave use nothing. Now the democrats are afraid the journalist might say something since every thing is going wrong So lets gaige them some more and bring on a dictatorship

  5. SOOOOOOOO! Trump wasn’t trying to destroy the press after all. And they were SOOOOOOOOO! happy when mumble mouth was elected.

  6. Sounds like Communism 101 to me. Only tell the people what you want them to hear, so far it’s working great in North Korea and China

  7. The last poll I saw regarding citizen regard for the press, puts them at the same level of trust as a used car salesman, on a par with politicians. ALL WE WANT IS THE TRUTH! The mainstream media has become THE STATE MEDIA under Biden anyway, so they have NO CREDIBILITY ANYWAY! The thing that amazes me is the media seems oblivious to the contempt most people have for them, and still think all they have to do is SAY “NO EVIDENCE” and we will believe them and plunk down our money! FOX found what happens when you ignore your customers. After the most biased TRUMP HATER at Fox put in a totally biased and unprofessional performance at the first “debate” their ratings dropped by 40%! I dumped my Facebook and Twitter accounts long ago, and will attempt Parler again IF THEY EVER ARE BACK ON LINE! WELCOME TO THE STATE MEDIA! PBS IS NOW A DEM MOUTHPIECE AND I DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO FUND THEM ANYMORE!

  8. Biden/Harris/Pelosi and the rest are CRAZY!!! Who voted these absolutely CRAZIES in office!

    1. No one voted these communist into office. Wake up and remember what happened last November 3rd and 4th.

  9. Approved by the White House first….THE FIRST AMENDMENT DOES OT REQUIRE THAT, IT IS MORE APPARENT EACH AND EVERY DAY THAT THIS ADMIN IS TOTALLY LOST IT AND THE DIRETION COMING OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE IS TAKEN FROM THE NAZI PLAYBOOK….GO BACK AND READ HISTORY AND PAY ATTENTIN TO WHAT YOUR KIDS ARE BEING TAUGHT NOW IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE. YOU ARE PAYING FOR YOUR KIDS TO BE INDOCTRINATED, NOT NOT EDUCATED.

    AMERICANS BE VERY CONCRNED ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING….HACKERS INTO THE PIPELINE IS JUST A START, THEY GET PAID NOW THEY WILL BE EVEN MORE AGGRESSIVE.

    NOW PELOSI IS TALKING ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT INVOVLEMENT IN CORPOATE AMERICA THIS WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED.

  10. Just what we need, gag orders on the press. Sounds like something that Kim Un Jong would do. He’s gotta go….just like he says.

  11. We have to be in a Twilight Zone episode and it’s in living color. Title might be “Ramblings of a Vacuous Biden Chamber”. There is no plot, no plan, and zero character. This will be a one trick pony as no one watched.

  12. I’m Biden are you my husband are you my wife are you my dog and who’s Kamala??? I’m writing from the old folks home! Please tell me, am I the president????

    but, but, but 80,000,000 + Americans voted for these frauds. (Biden and Kamala!) Where are they??? They seemed to have vanished into thin air or did they ever exist? Why don’t you see them all over the place like when they came out for President Trump? You be the judge! Hmmmmmm!

    I’m Biden, I think? And I support this message.

  13. Renee, I agree with you 110%. I recognized from the start that DJT wasn’t a guy most would hang out with, but he was exactly what was needed. Astute, business-savy, used to the MSM, used to public exposure, and LOYAL to the USA. His learning-curve as POTUS was short, and he surged against all odds. His downfall was a stolen election. I feel nothing but shame for these weasely msm morons, now that they see what they fomented. Their lies were constant throughout his administration, and they deserve no quarter now. This is what they lied for.

    1. Most likely or what ? He can’t form a whole sentence by himself. Then he stumbles it trying to read a prompter and then he covers everything with”Come on man!” What kind of communication is that? It certainly doesn’t sound like the English I know.

    2. Biden belongs in a nursing home. He is unable to do his job as president
      Or else impeach him and his vp. I was watching him on tv walking and he could hardly walk. Mrs biden take care of your husband before he totally collapses.

      1. They say early dementia for Biden?? I work with dementia and Biden has more dementia than early stage. I agree with you, Biden needs a nursing home and his wife needs to step up. Impeachment of president and his administration needs to be done. A lot of foreign countries are looking at USA as a country in trouble, weak, and vulnerable. God help this country🙏🙏

  14. If the media wants to hang onto whatever credibility it has left 0 as far as I’m concerned, they will mutiny.

  15. Interesting! How can Americans have a “mutinying” of the media who also has trust issues with the general public? I’ve quit listening to most news casts, don’t buy any newspapers and rarely open up any emails coming from extreme left or right sources. Both the Biden administration, Congress, State office holders, local politicians and media have a long way to go to restore trust in anything they have to say or do. You might not have like Trump’s personality but at least he did what he said he was going to do. It’s too bad he didn’t have more of Biden’s method of communication or he would have won the 2020 election. He was an effective leader but acted too much like a school boy bully! It’s a shame as we certainly need his leadership skills now.

  16. maybe your attention span needsboostiing remember this type of action was the hallmark of guy nnamehitler and another named mussollini.
    those who do not learn from history are condemed to repeat the mistakes.Now why is the media crying ? they brought it upon themselves.
    so stop crying and learn to change your dirty diaper.if youu defacate in your diaper do not expect me to clean you and change your diapers.reap what you row. and stop crying. do not crap in your dinner plate. or you will have to dine thhe crap you just defacated.

  17. Communism at it’s finest. State censored media. Will they finally get “it” ? Doubtful, but it will be a joy watching them squirm like the parasites they are. Even though they’re all related, even families fight and sometimes ruthlessly. Let the games begin !
    Trump 2020 ! The True President !!!!

    1. Watch honest people in government begin simply to leak the truth….like Daniel Ellsberg years ago…..

  18. Biden puppet masters required restrictions on quotes because no one even knows what old limp noodle Joe will say. He might even accidentally tell a truth and spill some beans!

  19. Stay at home mom Kelly Richards from New York after resigning from her full time job managed to average from $6000-$8000 a month from freelancing at home… This is how she done it…> >>>>>>>>>>> w­w­w­.­S­n­a­g­4­.­c­o­m
