Once in a while, the mainstream media grow frustrated, agitated, and angry when they believe they’re not being taken seriously.
It happened in the four year-term of President Trump because he refused to take them seriously. Why would he when they only filter and report fake news, propaganda, innuendo, and outright lies?
Now, as it appears the new president-elect came from their preferred party, Biden is expected to speak to them willingly. They practically helped install the guy in the presidential seat, albeit his dwindling mental capacities.
To the mainstream media’s utter disappointment, such is not the case.
Biden’s campaign was vague during the race, refusing to answer pointed questions on our government like packing the Supreme Court.
According to Fox News, the Biden transition team didn’t entertain any questions from reporters about Hunter Biden during a weekly briefing. The team allowed only a limited number of journalists to speak.
In the Friday Zoom briefing, Biden called on five reporters – from the CNN, New York Times, PBS, Politico, and Washington Post – and ignored Fox News and other outlets’ questions.
However, toward the end of the briefing, other reporters grew frustrated and started using the app’s “chat” function to pressure the president-elect’s officials in providing more access.
“Hey guys, there are tons of folks looking to ask questions, and since this is being done once a week, could we PLEASE go longer or at least hold more frequent briefings,” The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein wrote.
“Any chance you can take a few more questions? There are a lot of folks here with questions,” The Associated Press’s Zeke Miller also said in the chat.
“Is there a point in saying we want to ask questions if you only call on the same small group every week?” White House reporter Andrew Feinberg said.
Despite the journalists’ requests, Biden’s team refused to accommodate more questions from the press.
It could be noted that the Biden transition team announced a bombshell last week with Hunter Biden’s statement that he is under federal investigation.
“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” said Hunter in the statement.
“I take this matter very seriously, but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”
So, this is the media landscape that the Biden-Harris administration would entertain – only brief encounters with their liberal media outlets. Ones who do not ask tough questions that are more relevant for the American people.
