Pence Bans Audio, Video During White House Coronavirus Briefing As Death Toll Climbs To 9




White House reporters on Tuesday were surprised to learn that audio and video recordings would not be permitted during Tuesday’s COVID-19 coronavirus update in the White House press briefing room.

CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta tweeted: “WH is allowing only still photos of this Coronavirus briefing. No audio or video permitted. Here is a photo of the VP as the briefing began.”



Voice of America News’ Steve Herman tweeted: “We’re underway. No audio or video permitted but photos OK per @WhiteHouse.”

Walter Shaub, the former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, tweeted: “The White House has prohibited audio and video at its coronavirus briefing. It’s like they’re imploding.”




When Acosta asked Pence why the Coronavirus briefing was off-camera today, he said he “believes the briefing will be back on cam tomorrow.”
