Biden administration enacting unofficial MEDIA BLACKOUT on border crisis

“At the height of the Trump administration’s child separation policy in June 2018, it allowed media to tour facilities where separated children were held.”

“At the height of the Trump administration’s child separation policy in June 2018, it allowed media to tour facilities where separated children were held.”

That quote comes from a (very unhappy) mainstream media source. The unofficial term for it is a “gag order” that’s being verbally communicated and not through any official memos.

The news byte came early this morning via NBC News. Who ironically got it from sources who wanted to remain anonymous because they can’t talk to the media about not being able to talk to the media.

Numerous media outlets have requested either access or at least inside photos of the border processing facilities being overcrowded with children. In response, the DHS press office produced a single photo of a mother and child getting a health screening.

A DHS spokesperson told NBC they’re reverting back to 2014’s standards. "Across the federal government, certain employees are designated spokespeople for their respective agencies and public statements are vetted to ensure accuracy. This standard and process has been followed at DHS since the Department's inception and across bipartisan administrations. Customs and Border Protection continues to publicly provide the same monthly data on the same schedule as it has since 2014."

A second official explains the obvious: "It was more restrictive under Obama than under Trump, when there was more autonomy for each region to speak to the media."

But it's not a one-to-one comparison. Earlier today on Fox News an Arizona sheriff described the Biden border crisis as worse than when Obama was in office. He dubbed it the "Wild West."

Over the past 24 hours: former President Trump has called it out, Tucker Carlson said Biden’s people are encouraging the dilemma “on purpose,” while Nancy Pelosi refused to blame President Biden for the issue that sprung up in the interim since he took office.
