Sage Steele, the former ESPN host, recently disclosed that her interview with Joe Biden in March 2021 was completely scripted.
In an interview with Fox News, Steele mentioned that she was instructed to strictly stick to the written script without any deviations. ‘
The script had been meticulously reviewed by numerous executives and editors, and Steele emphasized that she was strictly instructed to follow it during the interview.
Additionally, ESPN executives explicitly instructed Steele not to ask Biden any follow-up questions during the interview.

“That was an interesting experience in its own right because it was so structured,” Steele said. “And I was told, ‘You will say every word that we write out, you will not deviate from the script and go.’”

“To the word. Every single question was scripted, gone over dozens of times by many editors and executives. Absolutely. I was on script and was told not to deviate,” Steele told Fox News Digital. “It was very much ‘This is what you will ask. This is how you will say it. No follow-ups, no follow-ups. Next.’ … This went up to the fourth floor, as we said, where all the bosses, the top executives, the decision makers are, the president of our company, the CEO, where they all worked.”

Steele expressed uncertainty about whether ESPN had sent the questions to the White House before the interview, but she appeared confident that this was the case.

Steele, who recently debuted her new podcast “The Sage Steele Show,” described her brief encounter with the oldest-serving president as “heartbreaking” due to concerns about his mental sharpness.

“I think it’s really heartbreaking that the people who love Joe Biden and say they truly care about him have allowed it to get to this point,” Steele said. “So I’m not even looking at this from a political angle or my beliefs in anything. This is the human side of it. And when someone is struggling, we allow them to continue to be in the spotlight and put them out there in the first place when they knew there were issues? Of course, they had to know. So it’s a humanity thing with me where I don’t care where anyone stands and what they vote for or who they believe in. Do you really care about that person? As a father, as a husband, as an everything.”

Steele had earlier described how Biden became less focused during their pre-interview conversation before recording.

“It was satellite, it wasn’t in person. We’re having a technical issue. And so I had to, like, BS. I had to chitchat waiting for us to start rolling,” Steele told Bill Maher on his “Club Random” podcast last fall. “Well, what he started to do, of course he has someone next to him, and they keep a black, like, curtain over the lens of the camera, so you can’t see him until the last second, but you can hear, and we’re chitchatting… So I can hear him, and he goes, ‘What is this for?’… And he’s, like, ‘Who am I talking to? Wait—what’s her name?'”
