On a conference Zoom call with President-elect Joe Biden‘s transition team, the team disabled the “chat” function for reporters to ask questions, according to reporters who were on the call.

Reporters on the call had to use a “raise hand” function to register if they wanted to ask a question, Fox News reported.

After the call, where the transition team answered only five questions, The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein and other reporters expressed their frustrations and asked to make the sessions more frequent or longer, as a significant number of questions were ignored.

Stein tweeted that he had been “routinely complaining to them to take more questions.”

“Hey guys, there [are] tons of folks looking to ask questions and since this is being done once a week, could we PLEASE go longer or at least hold more frequent briefings,” Stein wrote during a Zoom call.

“Any chance you can take a few more questions? There are a lot of folks here with questions,” The Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller added.

“Is there a point in saying we want to ask questions if you only call on the same small group every week?” said White House reporter Andrew Feinberg.

Despite Biden’s campaign team saying “transparency is incredibly important” regarding their relationship with the press, there has been many reports of media suppression or censorship from the left.

After Facebook and Twitter prevented stories about the Hunter Biden probe from being shared on the platforms before the November election, President Donald Trump accused media outlets and social media companies of “conservative discrimination.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
