Biden White House Doesn’t Understand First Amendment, Makes Reporters Get Quote Approval From Officials


On Monday, it was reported that a practice that has been around for some time was for the White House to have the opportunity to edit administration officials’ quotes prior to their going to print.

Interviews are frequently done on grounds known as “background with quote approval,” according to five Biden White House reporters who told Politico.

What this means is in order for someone’s name to be attached to a quote, the reporter doing the story must transcribe the quote and send it out to the White House communications office for approval. Now, I don’t know about you, but I have looked for that inside the First Amendment’s Free Speech and Freedom of the Press clauses and I couldn’t find it. I even held the Constitution up to the light, upside down, and I poured lemon juice on it and I still wasn’t able to locate the clause.
