Democrat Rep. Says ‘Off the Record’ Biden Wont Run Again – But She Was On the Record

Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) mistakenly believed she was speaking off the record when she disclosed Biden’s apparent intent for 2024. The New York Times editorial board member she was being interviewed by let her know she was mistaken.

According to Fox News:

The longtime congresswoman, who has made headlines with her wavering remarks about whether Biden is seeking re-election, was in the midst of a lightning round with the Times editorial board when she was asked by Eleanor Randolph if Biden should run again.

“Off the record, he’s not running again,” Maloney said.

Editorial board member Jyoti Thottam noted, however, that they were on the record.

“On the record? No, he should not run again,” Maloney said.

In reporting, interview subjects can request to go off the record, meaning what they say won’t be publicly reported, but reporters generally need to agree to those terms beforehand if the subject wants to have those wishes honored. Reporters honor “off the record” requests by interview subjects in order to build trust with sources and learn valuable information they can verify elsewhere. It’s generally established both parties must be clear about what’s off the record, however, or what the interview subject has to say may be fair game for reporting.
