When it came to transparency, we were assured that things were going to be different even though the Trump administration was, in actuality, incredibly transparent. CNN’s chyron blared “how refreshing” about new Press Secretary Jen Psaki, while journalists everywhere proclaimed that honesty had returned to the White House. Instead, what the media got was a cliché ridden Orange Girl. Psaki is terrible at her job, but it doesn’t matter because she has no need to actually be good at her job. She can throw the talking points out there knowing they’ll be dutifully repeated.
The news media fluffed Biden in unimaginable ways, making the bed they now have to lie in. You see, when you give a politician a pass on everything, do no investigative reporting on him, and essentially worship at his feet to defeat the orange man, that politician will not respect you when the time comes to press him on an issue. Biden feels completely comfortable snubbing the press, and they have no one to blame but themselves.
Biden won’t release his virtual schedules, he hasn’t done a presser since taking office, and he hasn’t even been seen in public since Friday. What’s that say to you? Perhaps the lack of transparency is a necessity given Biden’s probable condition? I think that’s the real explanation here. Biden is only getting worse, and it’s going to get harder and harder for his handlers to cover it up.
There are no citizen petitions or schedules for the president and vice president posted online. The White House comment line is shut down. The White House won't release virtual visitor logs. Biden has yet to hold a news conference of his own. https://t.co/FZMlibcEPf— Anita Kumar (@anitakumar01) March 1, 2021
