LA Times denies giving White House questions before press conference
May 1, 2023
The Los Angeles Times on Thursday is denying allegations that it submitted questions to the White House before a press conference the day earlier – after a photo emerged showing President Joe Biden holding a card with a summary of a question that the paper’s reporter Courtney Subramanian asked.
“Our reporter did not submit any questions in advance of the Q&A with President Biden,” the Times told Fox News Digital. “Courtney Subramanian covers the White House for the Los Angeles Times.
“As such, she is in regular contact with the White House press office seeking information for her reporting. You would have to ask the White House who prepared the document for the president and why they included that question.”
The White House did not comment to Fox on the matter.
“Joe Biden, our Commander-in-Chief, used a cheat sheet this afternoon…with a reporter’s question on it. Let that sink in,” Georgia GOP Rep. Andrew Clyde tweeted.
