A Biden Aide Made a Student Reporter Delete Photos of a Vice Presidential Event

Somebody go tell Bob Woodward this is what intimidation from the executive branch looks like: A staffer in Joe Biden's press office made student journalist Jeremy Barr, with Capital News Service, delete photos he'd taken at a Biden event because he accidentally sat in a non-press area. "The staffer called Barr’s presence in the non-press area an 'unfair advantage,'" CNS reported. But the dean of the journalism school at University of Maryland called the move "pure intimidation" in a complaint, and Biden's office apologized.
