The Biden campaign is facing backlash after being accused of providing pre-approved interview questions to black journalists. The controversy began when two black journalists, Andrea Lawful-Sanders and Earl Ingram, revealed that they had been given drafted questions to ask during their interviews with President Biden. The questions were reportedly gentle and similar in nature, leading to speculation that the Biden campaign was afraid that the president could not answer questions in real-time.

The Biden campaign has denied any involvement from the White House in drafting the questions, stating that the interviews were handled by the campaign and their Black Media Director. However, this has not stopped critics from accusing the campaign of using black journalists as "human shields" for their communications crisis.

The controversy has sparked outrage from black Democrats, with one strategist stating that the Biden campaign's actions were a "fireable offense." The incident has also drawn comparisons to Biden's previous comments about black voters, in which he suggested that they were not truly black if they did not vote for him.

The Biden campaign has since announced that they will discontinue the practice of providing pre-approved questions to journalists. However, the damage may already be done, as the incident has further eroded trust in the Biden administration and raised questions about their commitment to transparency and accountability.

This latest controversy comes as the Biden administration continues to face criticism for their handling of a variety of issues, including the economy, immigration, and foreign policy. With the 2024 election fast approaching, it remains to be seen whether the Biden campaign will be able to regain the trust of voters and secure a second term in office.
