Biden thinks US press not 'always on point' - WH

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a briefing on Monday that the United States President Joe Biden meant that the American press is "not always on point" when he earlier advised Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi against answering reporters' questions.

She added that the president has taken questions from the members of the press over 142 times so far, he has also done so while standing next to a foreign leader. "He certainly respects the role of the press, the role of the freedom of press," Psaki stated.

Biden told Modi during their in-person meeting that Indian media was "far more behaved" and "professional" than American and therefore refused to answer questions. The US leader was accused of a similar disregard for journalists during his meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
