I KNOW THEY’RE IN THE TANK, BUT WHY DO THEY PUT UP WITH THIS? The Politico story today that “Reporter ‘not allowed’ to talk to voters at Biden event” follows several previous stories of journalists being manhandled by Biden’s staffers:
- Biden Team Apologizes to Reporter for Sticking Him In Closet.
- Thug Administration: White House Wants Jason Mattera Investigated for Biden Question.
- Campaign Staffers Prevent Reporters From Asking Joe Biden Questions At Ohio Event.
- MSNBC, Politico, WaPo Reporters Complain About Biden Campaign Control Of Press.
