A new report from left-wing CNN’s “Reliable Sources” reveals that the Biden administration is holding briefings behind closed doors with corporate media officials in an attempt to “reshape” and restrict negative coverage of the administration’s economic failures.
The report from CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy states that “The White House, not happy with the news media’s coverage of the supply chain and economy, has been working behind the scenes trying to reshape coverage in its favor.”
According to CNN, “Senior White House and admin officials — including NEC Deputy Directors David Kamin and Bharat Ramamurti, along with Ports Envoy John Porcari — have been briefing major newsrooms over the past week, a source tells me.” CNN describes the secret meetings as “productive,” with “anchors and reporters and producers getting to talk with the officials.”

Price hikes, supply chain shortages, and other economic failures have resulted in corporate media outlets that normally provide fawning coverage of the Biden administration occasionally reporting on the severe economic stress being placed on many sectors of the U.S. populace.
The report that surfaced from CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Tuesday appears to indicate that the administration is choosing to “reshape” negative coverage of Biden’s apparent negligence in lieu of actually taking steps to reverse recent harmful economic trends.
As National File previously reported, prices for Christmas trees are surging during the holiday season in response to supply chain crunch and a shortage of truck drivers due to vaccine mandates:
“It’s a double whammy — weather and supply chain problems are really hampering the industry,” said Jami Warner, executive director of the American Christmas Tree Association, an industry trade group, told the Associated Press. “Growers have been hard hit by floods, fires, smoke, drought, extreme weather conditions.”
A growing shortage of truck drivers is also contributing to the surging price of Christmas trees. This has driven up the price of both real and artificial trees alike. The situation has the potential to significantly worsen as President Biden’s federal vaccine mandate looms.
