    According to a report in Politico, reporters are upset at the way the Biden White House gets to approve the quotes that they gather from sources in the White House. The practice is called, “background with quote approval.”

    In other words, if a reporter talks to someone from the Biden administration, they are not allowed to quote them on the record unless they allow the Biden White House to tweak and edit it as they see fit. Why do this?

    this is what Leftico says it means, and they should know:

    "In practice, that means the information from an interview can be used in the story, but in order for the person’s name to be attached to a quote, the reporter must transcribe the quotes they want and then send them to the communications team to approve, veto or edit them."

    What if Trump had made such an anti-1A request? Of course, most of the MSM are all too happy to lick the Biden administration's boots, any help with the SJW narrative is always welcomed.

    I can honestly say right now, I dont know any people of the LEFT. Everyone I know or talk to person to person voted for Trump. Well I do know of 1 person out of one hundred people who is a Sanders supporter.
    Either I live in a bubble here in SE Virginia, or the LEFT perpetuates fraudulent voting and are over represented in government, where do these LEFT people hang out.

    I can tell the LEFT is full of rage, simply from watching what they do and say on the news. IMO, they are satanically empowered into their emotional state.

    The ONLY logical explanation for their ability to twist, lie, side-step, shift emphasis, etc. on ANY subject that has a possibility of exposing their agenda & never blink an eye!!!
    They have this extraordinary talent of being able to lie and keep a straight face far & above the ability of ordinary folks!!

    I did not know this (and that it is acceptable....the Obiden and Trump administrations did this as well, see the article).

    I do not know. If the article is correct (I assumed it is) then Trump did, just not as much.

    But I do not know. I did not realize quotes were not really quotes until the article (which, like you point out, may be false).

    Correct. In fact most corporations do this as well. They have a message they want to control and they keep that messaging consistent by not allowing rogue statements to be published. I have seen it in the jobs I have had in corporate America. I am sure the Trump Administration did the same thing.

    oh no I fully believe Biden would do that not Trump he was to transparent and was not afraid to go toe to toe with the press on national tv. When libs are forced to admit their own did something they always try to say the other one did it too so as to minimize what their own us doing.

    I don't know. The only time I heard of this quote editing thing was the article in the OP. AND the article in the OP stated that both Obama and Trump administrations took advantage of editing quotes before allowing them to be released.

    If the article is false then it is false. If it is to be believed then I see no reason to believe it only when it comes to Biden.

    I knew corporations did it, and to be honest I am not sure why it surprised me that those in public service did it as well. Everything is, after all, a PR campaign.

    The article stated that the Trump administration (and the Obama administration) did the same thing, but not with the frequency we see with the Biden administration. But then again, with Trump, he was fond of twitter. Perhaps using more of a filter would have helped his administration.

    The question, for me, is how on earth we can believe in a free press if public offices edit quotes. It's 1984.
