Democrat President Joe Biden refused to call on any conservative publications during his first press conference on Thursday, an event he has avoided holding for more than two months into his presidency, by far the longest streak of any modern president.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy was in the room but Biden did not call on him, instead consulting a list that he repeatedly looked at when determining who he was going to call on.
All of the reporters that Biden called on were from left-of-center mainstream publications and far-left organizations or are activists who masquerade as reporters.
Biden called on the following reporters:
- Zeke Miller, reporter, Associated Press
- Yamiche Alcindor, far-left reporter, PBS
- Seung Min Kim, reporter, The Washington Post
- Cecilia Vega, reporter, ABC News
- Ken Thomas, reporter, Wall Street Journal
- Kristen Welker, reporter, NBC News
- Nancy Cordes, reporter, CBS News
- Kaitlan Collins, reporter, CNN
- Justin Sink, reporter, Bloomberg News
- Janet Rodriguez, reporter, Univision
Reporters largely asked Biden softball questions or acted as activists and appeared to strongly push him to act in accordance with the political Left’s partisan agenda. Biden also repeatedly looked down as he appeared to read many of his answers from prepared notes.
CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond noted that Biden “did not get one question about the pandemic that has gripped this country for over a year,” despite more than 150,000 dying under Biden’s leadership in just over two months in office.
Pretty remarkable that Biden did not get one question about the pandemic that has gripped this country for over a year

Nicole Saphier, MD, noted that no reporters asked Biden about his plans to investigate the origins of the coronavirus, which came from China, and asked him no questions about reopening the country or schools.
Lacking from the press conference was discussion on any plan to investigate SARS-CoV-2 origin, U.S. re-opening plans moving forward and strong words for teachers unions to follow the science and get children back in school. #bidenpressconference

Reporters did not ask Biden about him falling three times as he gripped a rail while trying to walk up the steps of Air Force One. Reporters did not ask Biden about the bombshell story that came out today that suggested that his son may have lied on a background check form to illegally obtain a firearm, which would be a felony.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy has a binder full of questions he didn’t get to ask President Biden today
