[Ed. – Biden is the mainstream media’s creature.  It’s not clear if they’re really frustrated or just putting on a good show.  Maybe a little of both.]

American reporters in the White House press pool registered their frustration with President Joe Biden and his staff Tuesday for not taking questions at an event, even though United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on reporters from the U.K.

White House Correspondents Association President Steve Portnoy informed his colleagues that following the press event, the entire pool went to White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s office to “register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office.”
