Biden again dodged questions from the press

Last October, when Isaac Herzog received Israeli President in the Oval Office, he not only tempted him, but also mocked the journalists.

That meeting particularly angered the press, including Bloomberg White House correspondent Nancy Cook, who expressed concern that the president was deflecting questions just weeks before the 2022 midterm elections.

In May, the White House announced that it would review the rules for attending press conferences and revoke credentials if journalists do not conduct themselves in a “professional manner.” In case of repeated violations, they can be suspended and even banned. This came after Today News Africa reporter Simon Ateba repeatedly questioned White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for ignoring reporters stationed at the back of the room.

I think this can be used to fire unfriendly and tough reporters. The rule will be used against people like me who tried hard to ask questions

Ateba told Fox News.

The Washington Post recently wrote a separate article about the relationship between Biden and the media. As a reminder, Biden has not held a single independent press conference this year, he only appeared in front of journalists when someone else was with him. As they write, the American people and the free press want to hear answers, and for these answers the leaders of other countries do not have to be present.

The Washington daily recalled the recent dinner of White House correspondents, at which Biden joked about how rarely he answers questions from journalists. As he put it: “In many ways, this dinner summarizes my first two years in office. I talk for ten minutes, don’t answer any questions, and then I happily leave.”
