Biden Admin Holding Secret Meetings, ‘Working Behind the Scenes’ with Major News Outlets to ‘Reshape’ Coverage

Unlike the Trump administration, which openly battled a hostile and vengeful media driven by a left-wing bias, the Biden administration appears to be in cahoots with journalists.

A bombshell report accuses the Biden administration of colluding and conspiring secretly with journalists and producers from major news outlets behind closed doors.

The incident occurred last week in order to influence reporting on the nation’s economic woes in Biden’s favor.

Even CNN has admitted this fact: According to a transcript of “Reliable Sources” on Dec 6, a source told CNN Chief Media Correspondent Oliver Darcy that the Biden White House “has been working behind the scenes” to “reshape coverage” on the economy “in its favor.”

Senior White House and Biden officials held briefings “discussing with newsrooms trends pertaining to job creation, economic growth, supply chains, and more.”

Darcy said that Biden’s “basic argument” was that “the country’s economy is in much better shape than it was last year.”

“I’m told the conversations have been productive, with anchors and reporters and producers getting to talk with the officials.”

Biden clearly needs all of the help that he can get as his own White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki failed abysmally to answer simple questions on live TV.

Reports quickly surfaced that Psaki “embarrassed herself” when asked about the latest jobs report. The dismal numbers, according to CNBC, showed that nonfarm payrolls increased by 210,000 in November. This was well below Wall Street expectations of 573,000.

Appearing on the liberal-friendly network MSNBC, co-host Mika Brzezinski said to Psaki, “210,000. So if we look at that breaking news right now, that’s a number that feels a little… what? A little off?”

“Well, I know this sounds a little archaic, but I can’t comment on them until 9:30, by rules, because I work at the White House,” Psaki said, scrambling to find an explanation.

“What I will say is people can expect the president to continue to say, today, month to month, is that what we’re seeing are good trends, that we are continuing to put people back to work, that we are continuing to see participation in the workforce, that we are continuing to see the unemployment rate go down, but there’s more we need to do to address core problems that have existed long before the pandemic.”

The Biden administration officials who took part in these briefings reportedly include National Economic Council Deputy Directors David Kamin and Bharat Ramamurti, and Ports Envoy John Porcari, according to Darcy.

Darcy’s report of the Biden administration’s attempt to receive positive coverage from news media comes as the nation suffers from inflation during the holiday season, despite U.S. President Joe Biden’s campaign promise last year to carry out a plan that would supposedly save the economy.

According to the Pew Research Center, the United States’ annual inflation rate struck a three-decade high of 6.2 percent in October. Although inflation rose globally, the U.S., under Biden, saw one of the largest spikes in inflation.

A December report from Gallup stated that 45 percent of American households believe that the price hikes resulting from the inflation are “causing their family some degree of financial hardship.”

Ten percent of the households called inflation a “severe hardship affecting their standard of living,” according to Gallup. Those most affected by the price hike are lower-income households, Gallup reported.

Fox News reported Monday that according to economists consulted by the National Association for Business Economics, yearly inflation will likely stay above 2 percent for the coming three years because of growing wages and high demand for goods and services.
