( – A new photo of President Biden with a note card in his hands has gone viral. On Wednesday during a joint press conference with Anthony Albanese, the Prime Minister of Australia, Biden appeared to have had a cheat sheet when answering to reporters.

During the press conference, the two leaders answered questions by four reporters, two Americans and two Australians. Almost 24 hours after the event, an image from the press conference started taking over the internet as it depended on President Biden carrying a note card that included the faces and names of the reporters.

The list included the two American reporters, Joey Garrison, the USA Today White House correspondent, and Laura Barrón-López, correspondent for PBS, as well as the two Australian ones, The Australian’s Jeff Chambers and Australia’s Channel 10 Network Political Editor Ashleigh Raper. These were the four reporters whom the two men accepted questions.

Biden and Barrón-López had an important exchange as the President rejected her question arguing that he did not believe the numbers from the Gaza Health Ministry, which is controlled by Hamas, about the death toll in Palestine is accurate.

In April Biden had been seen with a similar note card after a joint press conference with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol. The cheat sheet at the time had included the words “Question #1” and the name of reporter Courtney Subramanian. Subramanian, a journalist for the Los Angeles Times, was indeed the first reporter called to ask a question during that press conference.

The White House has not provided any information about the note cards given to Biden to guide him in which questions to accept.
