On Thursday, it was finally officially announced that Jen Psaki would be Joe Biden’s press secretary no longer. Following months of reporting that she had long since secured a deal to host an opinion program on MSNBC, a major ethics violation as she continued to operate within her official capacity, May 13th will now be her last day.
Her replacement, Karine Jean-Pierre, has taken to the podium several times over Biden’s tenure, and you’ll be less than shocked to learn she’s just as dishonest as Psaki.
But she’s following in her soon-to-be-former boss’ footsteps in more ways than one. Like Psaki, Jean-Pierre already has a big conflict of interest on her hands. Namely, she’s in a relationship with a CNN personality.
President Biden’s trailblazing pick for his new press secretary is already being accused of creating troubling conflicts of interest because of her long-term relationship with star CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux…
…While Jean-Pierre’s groundbreaking pick for the White House post was widely celebrated, it also left some questioning her and Malveaux’s impartiality. CNN’s recent scandals have included now-axed host Chris Cuomo’s behind-the-scenes meddling in brother and then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sex scandals…
…Soon after Jean-Pierre’s new gig was announced, Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of the right-wing news outlet Breitbart, tweeted, “This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers.”
I’m old enough to remember when CNN’s own media “watchdog,” Brian Stelter, used to gnash his teeth over the connections between the Trump White House and Fox News. And in the most recent case, he complained about Kayleigh McEnany joining Fox News months after the Trump administration ceased to exist.
Yet, here we have the new press secretary for the Biden administration literally in a long-term relationship with a major CNN reporter. I’m struggling to think of a stronger conflict of interest that could exist regarding the White House comms team. Yet, Stelter and the rest have been noticeably silent, with CNN only raining praise down on Jean-Pierre. How very convenient, right?
The news industry wouldn’t have standards at all if they didn’t have double standards. This just happens to be an especially egregious example, but there are many, many more I could cite. Going back to the Obama years, you had officials not just going to do opinion shows on networks like CNN and MSNBC, but becoming “hard news” reporters. Stepping back further, George Stephanopoulos, who once ran Bill Clinton’s war room, is the lead anchor for ABC News.
Jean-Pierre will not be a straight shooter. But we already knew that.
There are no stars at CNN. Turds but no stars.
Where do they get these slugs?
Looks like she’s dating John Kerry.
Obviously she was the most qualified person (eyes rolling).
Is she dating Don Lemon?
Like the intersectionality of Chicago Mayor Larry Leadfoot, the new White Crib Mouthpiece is ‘married’ to a white woman. As for Larry, she wouldn’t take interviews from white reporters. Will Peppermint Patty’s replacement follow suit?
The press and the democrats are incestuous just like the Bidens.
Corruption only counts for Repubs.
I don't watch CNN, so I have no clue who that woman is, but I'm pretty sure it's no Don Lemon. 🙂
so what is that woman’s name?
RE: so what is that woman’s name?
Read on... it’s in the article.
RE: Is she dating Don Lemon?
Read on... who her partner is is in the article.
“Looks like she’s dating John Kerry.”
LOL...I thought it looked like a guy, too, but couldn’t quite put my finger on who. Thanks for helping me out on that.
Is this supposed to be a surprise?
The sexual deviants already gave her a big standing O for being black. It’s amazing.
All of Peter Doocy’s questions are now racist
Washington is a city full of conflicts of interests. One spouse in government, another working for a media company or lobbying firm. People moving in and out of government from political office to regulated industry to appointed position in government. Do the bidding of the system as you move in and out of government and you will become wealthy and powerful. Hypocrisy and conflicts of interest only matter if you are one of the ruled. The rulers do as they please.
Is there 10 righteous people in DC?
