Biden was caught insulting a "Fox News" reporter  Washington: US President Joe Biden was caught on Monday insulting a Fox News reporter, calling him a "stupid son of a whore" on the sidelines of a photo session at the White House.  As reporters were leaving, a reporter for "Fox News," a conservative favorite, asked President Biden if inflation was a political burden ahead of the midterm elections.  "That's a great advantage, more inflation," the Democratic president, probably not knowing his microphone was still on, replied sarcastically, before being heard muttering, "What a stupid son of a bitch."  A reporter who was on the scene said he couldn't hear Biden's words because of the noise, but added: "Listen to a video of the event if you're curious to know what the president really feels when Fox News' Peter Dossey asks him about inflation."  In an interview on "Fox News", Dossey ignored Biden's insult to him and responded indifferently, saying, "No one has checked what he said yet and found it not true."  Dossey later confirmed that Biden called him within an hour and told him, "It's not personal, my friend."  Previously, the White House rushed to explain or reverse any Biden gaffe. But this time, it seemed that the White House had no problem confirming what Biden had said about Dorsey, as the minutes of the session included the president's comment in full, which means that the phrase will find its way to be preserved in the official historical record.  The New York Times reporter, Katie Rogers, posted on her Twitter account a picture taken from the minutes of the session showing the insults launched by Biden.(AFP)
