    It has been reported that Joe Biden's staff has tried to physically prevent the media (press) from interacting with Biden including taking pictures.

    Like him or dislike him, Trump is usually available to the media so I'm wondering how the press will react to being shut out by Biden.

    Do you think that it's a good idea for Biden to limit his media (press) access ?

    Also look at AOC, Beto, etc.

    They all use social media now and aren't afraid of interacting with the press.

    Trying to control / limit access to the press doesn't seem like it will work anymore.

    How well did Mitness protection work out for Mit Romney.

    I believe that Hillary tried the same thing and that it didn't work out for her either.

    I think people are getting fed up with the lack of transparency in modern politics and anyone whose willing to appear more open and honest (even if not honest) is going to get more attention to the old style of controlling everything and back room shenanigans

    Actually, there's never been a president so against the media. We're talking about a man who has banned members of the press from the WH press briefings. When was his last interview on CNN or MSNBC? Obama did them with Fox News.

    It's a fair argument to ask if Biden is up for it, it's unfair to play Trump as if he's accessible because that is not even remotely true.
