White House Sends Marching Orders To Media Execs On How They Should Cover Biden Impeachment Inquiry

Sep 13, 2023 | Political News

The White House will demand that major media outlets cover the impeachment inquiry into the president announced by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday with “scrutiny,” according to CNN.

McCarthy directed the Republican Party to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden over his conduct as vice president. The White House is planning to send a letter to the executives of major news outlets such as CNN, The New York Times, Fox News, the Associated Press and CBS News, explaining the impeachment inquiry should “set off alarm bells for news organizations,” according to a draft copy obtained by CNN.

“It’s time for the media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies,” Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House’s Counsel Office, wrote in the letter, according to CNN.
