White House scandal erupts: Biden admin is pressing media to allow them to edit quotes

The Biden administration has been found demanding to be allowed to edit quotes from administration officials before they are published, according to The Washington Examiner.

President Joe Biden and other White House officials appear to be breaking protocol by asking that journalists not print the direct quotes.

A report in POLITICO cited five journalists who are part of the White House press pool who said that there is a “background with quote approval” process going on at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The journalists in question said that the Biden administration communications team is actively vetting quotes before they’ll allow a name to be attached to them and have them go to print.

“The routine includes reporters sending quotes to the communications shop, which then decides whether to ‘approve, veto or edit them,'” the Examiner reported.

According to the Examiner, approval of quotes is not unheard of, in fact, the previous two administrations used such a practice at times. The noteworthy portion is the frequency with which the Biden administration is attempting to control information going to the news media.

“The rule treats them like coddled Capitol Hill pages, and that’s not who they are or the protections they deserve,” one White House reporter, who was not named, told the news outlet.

According to longtime chief White House correspondent for the New York Times Peter Baker, this communication between the press and administration comms officials began as a way of allowing reporters to gain more transparency from the White House, asking for a piece of information to move from a “blind quote” to one with an official on the record.

“Instead of transparency, suddenly, the White House realized: ‘Hey, this quote approval thing is a cool thing,” Baker said. We can now control what is in their stories by refusing to allow them to use anything without our approval. And it’s a pernicious, insidious, awful practice that reporters should resist.”

  1. Last month i managed to pull my first five figure paycheck ever!!! I’ve been working for this company online for 2 years now and i never been happier… They are paying me $95/per hour and the best thing is cause i am not that tech-savy, they only asked for basic understanding of internet and basic typing skill… It’s been an amazing experience working with them and i wanted to share this with you, because they are looking for new people to join their team now and i highly recommend to everyone to apply… Visit following page for more information…>>>>>> 𝐰­𝐰­𝐰­.­𝐒­𝐧­𝐚­𝐠­𝟒­.­𝐜­𝐨­𝐦

  2. My last paycheck was $5500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.
    This is what I do………………. 𝐰­𝐰­𝐰­.­𝐒­𝐧­𝐚­𝐠­𝟒­.­𝐜­𝐨­𝐦

  3. Agree with most of above comments. Number one item should be to excommunicate George Soros from this country. He and O’Bummer are running this administration and it gets worse and worse everyday! By the way, those “work at home” ads should be banned!

  4. Marissa Meyer – CEO of Yahoo! , is advising people to start “Work at home” practice, that I have been doing for over a year now. This year alone, I made about $36k so far with nothing but my computer and some free time, despite that i have a full-time 9 to 5 job. Even people new to this, can make $50/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started…>>>>>>>>>> 𝘄­𝘄­𝘄­.­𝗦­𝗻­𝗮­𝗴­𝟰­.­𝗰­𝗼­𝗺

  5. there is nothing here in the Biden administration that was a accident, Every thing right out of the Obama administration play book, every thing preplanned,

  7. They want to be able to edit all quotes so they can cover up all the fck ups Obiden makes! They’ll do anything to make Obiden not look as stupid as he is, his slutty v.p. too.

    1. Since Polly did not finish her sentence, I will do so for her: “The most dishonest administration is the one that does not level with the people it is supposed to serve — and whose elected representatives they are.” Gee, that seems to fit the current crop of politicians (sorry, my mistake: I meant “political hacks”) occupying a lot of the seats in Congress and the two main ones in the White House….. How about some “political hawks” to replace them? There is just one letter to change, after all…. :-)))

  10. We have a increase in crime, shootings causing more division. We have chaos on the border that was secure. We have a war in the Middle
    East that had peace treaties being brokered.
    We have people not going back to work because getting more from the Government to
    stay home. We have a fuel shortage because with the stroke of a pen we lost our energy independence. The Bills being presented are
    A path to inflation. The race bating is causing
    a deep divide in our Nation.

    We must stop this nonsense – you can hate Trump but his policies were working & the best thing he was not beholden to Lobbyists or
    donors. He was working for the American
    People.

  11. Let’s see now, where did that term “Dictatorship of the Proletariat” come from? Oh, yeah…Karl Marx. Looks like that’s about what we have now!

  12. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, they don’t know how to tell the truth and I don’t blame them if you’ve done what they have would u take credit for it, I DON’T THINK SO!!! There evil 👺😈👿👹

  13. Yeah what a disgrace. The whole world is laughing and wondering what the h— are we going to do. I think we need to start a petition with signatures to have them all removed. Is this possible???

  14. Transparency…with Biden that means a black hood on your head and then put your head in a hole. They think all people a stupid….but look at themselves, stupid is as stupid does. You can fix dumb but not stupid.

  15. The press pool does not want to work with the cesspool . About time the press wakes up and start working instead of being the propaganda arm of the dims . I pray they do not go to sleep but stay up and do the jobs hired for .

  16. Patriots are getting tired of these over reaching Scumball politicians having the audacity to believe they can do whatever they want! They’re all career corrupt dirtbags and must be stopped before they completely destroy this beautiful country. We need to aggressively get these POS out of office and put representatives who love our country, constitution and the rule of law.

    1. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT DEMONRATS ARE LIARS…. AND THIS PROVES they are CHEATERS AND JUST PLAIN TRASH.

  17. 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
