President Biden FINALLY Adds ‘Sign Language’ To ‘White House’ Press Briefings.

by Anura Guruge

I asked the question nearly a year ago (as you can see from the image at the top).

I noticed that it has come to pass under President Biden — THOUGH all media outlets (e.g., CNN) are NOT showing it! Can’t figure out why. MSNBC does so, from what I can see,

Have YOU noticed it. I no longer (SMILE) watch as many White House Press Briefings as I used to. They are not as entertaining as they used to be — BUT that is a good thing.

Though I cannot read sign language I am GLAD that it is available. Yes, I do like watching them. Some, as you know, are very expressive.

Just Google: ‘why no sign language at white house

I had kind of noticed this, in passing, in the past, but it never ‘registered’ per se.

But, now with everyone doing Coronavirus COVID-19 briefings IT is so obvious … so glaring … so conspicuous.

Nothing at the White House.

Then they cut to a briefing from a State and voila (though I just learnt that NY doesn’t do it either).

Does NOT make sense.

You would think there would be a law. Maybe not.

BUt, I wanted to bring it to your attention.

YES, it is true that most modern TVs and streaming devices do support on-the-fly subtitling. But, you can’t assume that everybody has that capability or can ‘read’.

I just want CONSISTENCY.

If the States (bar NY) do it, shouldn’t the White House?

That is all. SMILE.
