Black Radio Host Fired for Colluding with Biden Campaign on Interview Questions

The black Philadelphia radio host who recently interviewed Democrat President Joe Biden has been fired after it emerged that she colluding with his campaign on the questions.

The Biden campaign reportedly provided broadcaster Andrea Lawful-Sanders, the former host of “The Source” on Philadelphia’s WURD 96.1 FM, with all of the questions she asked the president during last week’s trainwreck interview.

On Sunday, WURD Radio announced that Lawful-Sanders had been fired over the collusion.

“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 CEO Sara Lomax said the station “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.”

She continued, saying her station “is not a mouthpiece for the Biden or any other administration.

“Internally, we will commit to reviewing our policies, procedures, and practices to reinforce WURD’s independence and trust with our listeners.

“But mainstream media should do its own introspection to explore how they have lost the trust of so many Americans, black Americans chief among them.”

“Black media matters,” the statement added.

“As always, we will listen, dialogue, and engage with our community, bringing credible information, experts, and insights to address the needs, concerns, and interests of our people.

“This is essential as black Philadelphians gear up to be a pivotal player in one of the most consequential elections of our lifetime.”

Despite the controversial pre-arranged interview questions, it was another interview to forget for Biden who is facing intensifying pressure to stand down.

In the pre-recorded interview that aired Thursday, Biden famously told Lawful-Sanders that he’s proud to be a “black woman.”

“And by the way, I’m proud to be – as I’ve said – the first vice president – first black woman to serve with a black president,” Biden said.

It comes as Biden opened a critical stretch in his effort to salvage his doomed re-election campaign.

Biden is facing a growing sense that he may have just days to make a persuasive case that he is fit for office before Democrat support for him completely evaporates.

In the aftermath of Biden’s disastrous debate performance against President Donald Trump, some financial backers were holding off or canceling upcoming fundraisers, according to a person familiar with the plans who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to talk about private discussions.

Nevertheless, Biden insists that he will remain in office and continue his re-election campaign.

“I’m not going anywhere,” Biden told a crowd gathered for a July Fourth barbecue on the White House South Lawn.

In a meeting last Wednesday night with Democrat governors, Biden revealed that he plans to lighten his workload and get more sleep, as Slay News reported.

However, Biden raised further concerns when he made a “joke” about his brain being damaged.

In response to a question from Hawaii’s Democrat Governor Josh Green, Biden reportedly said, “I’m fine — I don’t know about my brain, though.”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who was in the meeting, was asked Thursday about the idea that Biden wants to limit events after 8 p.m. so he could get to bed early.

“He did that with a smile on his face,” Newsom responded.

“It was more of a rhetorical framework of just being fit and rested.”

Newsom, who was campaigning for Biden in western Michigan, added, “I like when a president acknowledges they’re human.”
