President Joe Biden’s communications team is keeping a short leash on the president and other administration officials in order to control public perception in the media. 

Interviews with administration officials often are considered to be “background with quote approval,” five reporters who cover the White House for various outlets told Politico. This means that if a reporter wants to use a quote from a Biden administration official, a transcription of the quote has to first be sent over to the White House communications team, who then has the prerogative to veto, approve, or even edit the quotation, Politico reported.
