    WH Reporters Demand Biden Admin Change Unprecedented Rules That Are ‘Restrictive and Antithetical to…a Free Press’

    The letter to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was signed by 68 journalists — many of whom are at odds with each other on a daily basis — including Kaitlan Collins of CNN, Ed O’Keefe of CBS and Jacqui Heinrich of Fox News, according to the New York Post.

    During his time in the White House, Biden has often left news conferences while reporters were trying to ask questions, and he has indicated from his comments that he is given a list of people to call on to ask questions.

    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. We are all left wondering who is making these decisions and what are the criteria on which they are based?

    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 to answer.​

    I found this an interesting aside in the letter linked above.

    Here is the press - hardly a fan of President Trump:

    The administration's continued efforts to limit access to the president cannot be defended. Any notion that space is “limited” is not supported by the fact that every other president before Biden (including Trump) allowed full access to the very same spaces without making us fill out a request form prior to admittance.
    It sure gives the impression they are protecting the President from the hard questions every one of his predecessors had to answer.

    “Do you know what day it is?”
    “Do you know where you are?”
    “Can you tell me who is the President of the United States?”

    "The letter noted that this is not an issue for which Biden
    can blame former President Donald Trump."

    White House new press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre
    won’t discuss Biden voicemail on Hunter’s laptop.

    White House still 'cannot comment' on
    validity of Hunter Biden's laptop
    White House still 'cannot comment' on validity of Hunter Biden's laptop

    "Recently revealed information obtained from the laptop includes
    a voicemail left by President Joe Biden on his son's phone in 2018
    that indicates he discussed and had knowledge of Hunter's business
    dealings despite the president's claims."
