Media outlets peddling "conspiracy theories" could be shut out of White House press briefings, Biden administration officials have claimed, a move which could affect numerous conservative media organizations.
In a statement to Politico, Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo said the administration is working with the White House Correspondents Association to figure out what to do with problematic outlets that might try to "traffic in conspiracy theories."
"We expect reporters covering the White House to operate in good faith and tell their audience the truth, and this White House will do the same. We are moving forward with that mutual understanding," said T.J. Ducklo, the deputy White House press secretary. "Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated, and we'll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward."
Since liberals consider reports on election irregularities and voter fraud to be "conspiracy theories," such a move could affect many conservative outlets, including NewsMax and Fox News.
