Under Joe Biden, Americans are experiencing the highest gas prices in history, increasing food costs, and ballooning home goods prices.
Under Biden’s administration, the world has been brought to the verge of Foreign War III, Afghanistan has been evacuated while being handed over to the Taliban, and world leaders view the United States as a second-rate power.
In addition, Biden’s failure to secure the nation’s borders has led to a rise in national crime and an intentional influx of illegal immigrants. Cartels continue to spread into the country’s interior, distributing their lethal fentanyl products and enslaving individuals they force to pay to enter the country illegally.
Biden’s handlers have attempted to keep the journalists away from him in order to prevent his notorious slip-ups.
However, journalists are now exhausted.
New York Post reports, “a group of 68 journalists sent a rare protest letter to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Thursday asking that President Biden’s staff abandon a mysterious pre-screening process and reopen large events to all journalists.”
TV correspondents, renowned senior reporters, and White House Correspondents Association officials united behind the call to eliminate year-old limitations on locations like the East Room that were “open press” during previous administrations.
Biden aides have refused to disclose the selection criteria for presidential events to the Correspondents’ Association, and individual reporters have received a variety of contradictory explanations, leading to the widespread belief that the practice is intended to limit the range of questions posed to the president.
“The current method of allowing a limited number of reporters into these events is not only restrictive and antithetical to the concept of a free press, but it has been done without any transparent process into how reporters are selected to cover these events,” the letter states.

The letter continues:
“The continued inability of the White House to be candid and transparent about the selection process for reporters attending his remarks undermines President Biden’s credibility when he says he is a defender of the First Amendment.”
“The incongruity of these restrictions underscores the belief by many reporters that the administration seeks to limit access to the president by anyone outside of the pool, or anyone who might ask a question the administration doesn’t want asked.” CONTINUE READING…
