Radio Host Fed Questions By Biden White House ‘Parts Ways’ With Station

Biden Called Himself "Black Woman" in Interview

The Philadelphia radio host who admitted to using pre-approved questions by the White House during her interview with President Biden has been fired by radio station WURD.  Click here to get Todd’s exclusive conservative news alerts without social media censorship.

Andrea Lawful-Sanders made national headlines over the weekend when she told CNN that White House officials had provided her with the questions to ask the president. That revelation destroyed the administration’s narrative that Biden was of sound mind and able to answer questions off the cuff.

“The interview featured pre-determined questions provided by the White House, which violates our practice of remaining an independent media outlet accountable to our listeners. As a result, Ms. Lawful-Sanders and WURD Radio have mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately,” said Sara Lomax, the president of the only black-owned and operated radio station in Pennsylvania.

Biden also said during the Independence Day interview that he was the “first black woman to serve with a black president.”

“WURD Radio has cultivated that trust with our audience over our 20-year history. This is something we take very seriously. Agreeing to a pre-determined set of questions jeopardizes that trust,” Lomax added.

“Black media has a long history of advocating for the interests of the Black community,” Lomax went on. “This practice of de-legitimizing Black voices continues today. WURD Radio is not a mouthpiece for the Biden or any other administration.”

The radio host told CNN host Victor Blackwell that she got a list of eight questions for the interview on Wednesday.

“The questions were sent to me for approval; I approved of them,” she told Victor Blackwell, the host of “First of All” on CNN. Asked if it was the White House that sent the questions to her in advance, she said it was.

Biden also sat for an interview on “The Earl Ingram Show” in Milwaukee. That interview was described by The New York Times as “halting” and the president gave “sometimes confusing answers.”

“The reason I ask is not a criticism of either of you,” Blackwell told the two anchors. “It’s just that if the White House is trying now to prove the vim, vigor, acuity of the president, I don’t know how they do that by sending questions first, before the interviews, so that the president knows what’s coming.”

Biden campaign spokesperson Lauren Hitt defended the decision to plant questions.

“It’s not at all an uncommon practice for interviewees to share topics they would prefer,’ she said in a statement. “These questions were relevant to news of the day – the president was asked about this debate performance as well as what he’d delivered for black Americans.”

Hitt said the campaign does not “condition interviews on acceptance of these questions, and hosts are always free to ask the questions they think will best inform their listeners.”

I find her explanation somewhat dubious.

I’ve interviewed President Trump almost a dozen times over the years. I sat in his office at Mar-a-Lago and interviewed him for 90 minutes. Not once did President Trump or his staff ever send pre-prepared questions. Not once did they tell me a topic was off-limits.
