Radio station fires host who revealed White House fed her questions to ask Biden

A local radio host just got fired after revealing that the White House fed her questions to ask President Joe Biden during a recent interview. 

The host, according to Fox News, is Andrea Lawful-Sanders.

Lawful-Sanders works - or, rather, worked - for WURD Radio, a Philadelphia-based Black-owned radio station.

This all comes after Biden's recent appearance on the station.

What happened?

Biden appeared on WURD with Lawful-Sanders last week. His appearance came after his poor performance at the recently-held debate.

Ever since then, Biden has been facing calls from within his own party to step aside and to allow someone else to represent the Democratic Party in the upcoming presidential election. Biden has refused, and, instead, he has been attempting to prove that he is still capable of winning.

It was towards this end that Biden appeared on WURD. There, Biden did not do a whole lot to help himself. But, it is what happened after the interview that has caught everyone's attention.

After the interview, Lawful-Sanders made an appearance on CNN, where she revealed that the White House, before her interview with Biden, fed her the questions that it wanted her to ask Biden. Additionally, Lawful-Sanders admitted to asking Biden at least some of those questions. Take a look:

WURD "parts ways" with Lawful-Sanders

The radio station was clearly not happy with Lawful-Sanders' acquiescence to the White House's request. Accordingly, it has fired her.

"On July 3, the first post-debate interview with President Joe Biden was arranged and negotiated independently by WURD Radio host Andrea Lawful-Sanders without knowledge, consultation or collaboration with WURD management," the station explained.

It added, "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."

It has now also been revealed that the White House fed questions to another local radio host. Thus far, though, this host has been allowed to keep his job.

But, the bigger question here is just how common is it for the White House to be feeding questions to interviewers. Many believe that these two episodes are not outliers.
