FNC’s ‘MediaBuzz’ host Howie Kurtz reacts to President Biden continually ignoring reporters’ questions.
“The Bully Pulpit has been muted under President Biden,” Kurtz said. “He doesn’t want to tangle much with the press… I think he has some concern about wandering off script or showing annoyance, which he has done several times.”
“The contrast with Donald Trump, who had a constant, codependent, and hostile relationship with the media is pretty stark.”
“Look at the media landscape as a giant void. There has to be something every day… If the president doesn’t fill that void, others will,” he said. “He has kind of abandoned control of the news agenda. He doesn’t make much news on social media, takes weekends off. I think he has given up an essential tool of the presidency.”
