JUST IN: Black Radio Host FIRED After Revealing Interview with Biden Was Scripted


Yesterday, we brought you a story about how Joe Biden’s disastrous post-debate interview with two black radio hosts was scripted:

Radio Host Says Interview with Biden Was SCRIPTED; White House Fed Her Questions

In short, one of the radio hosts, Andrea Lawful-Sanders, told CNN that the White House sent her approved questions that she could ask Biden during the interview.

Here's that clip:

Yet, Biden still managed to make a massive mistake, referring to himself as “the first Black woman to serve with a Black president."

Now, Sanders has been fired by the radio station for allowing the scripted interview.

Silenced, is more like it.

From The Post Millennial:

The radio host who interviewed President Joe Biden and admitted to using pre-approved questions provided by the Biden campaign has “mutually agreed to part ways” with her station after it condemned her for using the questions.

Andrea Lawful-Sanders, host of "The Source" on WURD in Philadelphia, revealed on CNN last Saturday that Biden officials had sent her a list of questions to ask the President in an interview conducted the previous Wednesday. Lawful-Sanders explained that she approved four of these questions and posed them to Biden during the interview.

Following this disclosure, WURD released a statement announcing that Lawful-Sanders and the station have "mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately."

The station clarified that the interview was arranged and negotiated independently by Lawful-Sanders, without the knowledge or collaboration of WURD management. WURD emphasized that using pre-determined questions provided by the Biden campaign violated its commitment to “remaining an independent media outlet” that is held accountable by its listeners.

In a statement, WURD radio station said:

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 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.

WURD Radio remains an independent voice that our audience can trust will hold elected officials accountable. As Pennsylvania’s only independent Black-owned talk radio station, 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 and is not a practice that WURD Radio engages in or endorses as a matter of practice or official policy.

On social media, most people are taking Andrea Lawful-Sanders' side after she was silenced for uncovering the truth.
