Biden Campaign Shows Us Just How "Transparent" They Are Going To Be
Biden has been going on about how he is going to bring this country together and how he is everyone's president regardless of who they voted for. But all of this kumbaya seems to only be surface level. The Biden campaign made it clear that they will not be allowing for any real questions to be asked during a recent zoom Press conference. The Associated Press and Daily Beast asked if they were going to be allowed to ask questions and instead of addressing their concerns, they shut down the chat. I guess they only allow for scripted questions...
The Daily Beast, Associated Press, and another media outlet asked if Biden was going to keep playing favorites.
“Hey guys, there 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,” a reporter from the Daily Beast said in the chat of a Zoom press conference held last week.
“Any chance you can take a few more questions? There are a lot of folks here with questions,” Zeke Miller from the Associated Press added.
“Is there a point in saying we want to ask questions if you only call on the same small group every week?” another asked."
So the Biden Campaign did what it does best and dodged.
“The Biden transition team appears to have disabled the public chat function on its transition zoom calls, a place where I and others had been routinely complaining to them to take more questions,” incoming Politico editor Sam Stein said on Twitter, per Fox News."
Wow, this transparency is too much for me... The Biden campaign recently claimed that they valued transparency and that it is the Press's job to hold him accountable. I guess by Press he meant the hand-picked media that he feels comfortable with. And Dems were complaining that Trump had State-run media with FOX News...
