Looks like the Biden family didn't really want privacy. What they meant to say was they wanted to control how the wedding of their grandaughter was covered.
The press is crying foul, after Vogue was given the scoop on the White House wedding.
Why wouldn't the Biden's want to invite the media? Because it would look like a bunch of privleged Washington bureaucrats throwing a lavish party at the taxpayers expense.
Is that a fair take? Who knows.
What is true is that media is suprised when the Biden administration refuses to throw them a bone and let them into a private event.
The Washington Post even had a reporter compare this White House to Trump's White House.
