So, it appears that only two weeks into his administration, Joe Biden’s staff is prescreening Jen Psaki’s questions prior to press briefings. Even with this prescreening, she still has to “circle back” to some questions because they are too difficult for her to answer. My only real thoughts here are, if she knows the questions on advance, why would she need to “circle back” to answer them?
Seriously though, as much as they deny it and try to deflect from it, the lamestream media are a direct supporter of the democrat party. To see the proof all you have to do is watch the video of a Trump press conference and a Biden lovefest. The differences are very obvious and incredibly disturbing. It almost brings me back to the time of “boxers or briefs?”
In an article in the Daily Beast, it says that “the Biden administration’s actions have sparked a sense of paranoia among the White House press corps, whose members, like many reporters, are sensitive to the perception that they are coordinating with political communications staffers.” Of course. That is exactly what they are doing.
It also brings into question then whether Ms. Psaki is qualified for the job that she is doing. If she knows, or has an idea of what is going to be asked, and she can’t answer and has to “circle back” to that reporter, isn’t that a problem as well?
A White House correspondent said, according to the Daily Beast, “The press can’t really do its job in the briefing room if the White House is picking and choosing the questions they want, that’s not really a free press at all.”
It’s ok though. We all knew that this would happen. We lived through eight years of the media tossing up softballs for Obama and his press folks with virtually no difficult questions being asked. We now have Biden, who will undoubtedly only take friendly questions as will his press secretary Jen Psaki.
The media should do its job and treat the Biden administration with the same tenacity that they did Trump. That means real questions and no “circling back” because you can’t answer a question.
And just remember, Jen Psaki is no Kayleigh McEnany. That is a fact.
