Fox Information contributor Ari Fleischer criticized The Biden administration Monday on “Hannity” for its current chilly remedy of reporters. Fleischer argued that “finally, the White House would not get to manage the press’s questions.”
ARI FLEISCHER: This adopted a yearlong marketing campaign during which his technique was to cover within the basement, primarily take no questions from anyone, the few occasions he did take questions, he acquired himself in loads of sizzling water. Do not forget that time he talked to a Black journalist and stated, what are you, are you a junkie? So when Joe Biden does converse his thoughts, his thoughts and his mouth, get him in loads of hassle. So I perceive the wrangling.
There may be at all times going to be a distinction between a White Home and a press corps about what the subject of the day ought to be. However finally, the White Home would not get to manage the press’s questions. And the worst instance of that is when the president, proper earlier than the July 4th vacation, was requested about Afghanistan and the Taliban taking up the nation at that time. And he stated, I solely wish to discuss glad issues. And the president failed to arrange the nation for what would occur as a result of he solely needed to speak about glad issues. There’s an actual danger to the White Home once they stiff-arm the press like this. I get message management, however that is beginning to damage Joe Biden.”
