A month in, there are still no plans for Biden’s first formal press conference

After sitting back and watching Joe Biden run nearly his entire campaign from his basement, how can the media now be surprised that the man they were only too happy to shill for continues to approach their questions with a basement mentality?

That rhetorical question was posed by LU asked back in December 2020. It is now worth asking again insofar as the press and the nation at large are growing restless as they wait for the man they elected to demonstrate his accountability to Americans.

At a White House briefing yesterday, a reporter pressed Jen Psaki for an update on when Biden would conduct his first formal press briefing as president. “Not yet,” Psaki replied, “but we will definitely have one, we will schedule it, and you will be the first to know because you’re pivotal participants in that.”

Questions continue to swirl around Biden’s mental acuity and whether his age-related cognitive decline is a factor in his decision to postpone his first formal presser for as long as he can. In September 2020, questions arose over whether the president-elect was reading scripted answers to questions from the media at what passed back then for news conferences.

Biden also raised a red flag at one of the informal pressers when he asked his staff to call on reporters because he didn’t have “his list with him.”

A list? Was this an indication that the press had agreed to provide questions in advance so that he could rehearse his answers before going live?
