Christina Pushaw is not afraid to get down in the dirt with reporters who go after her boss.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary has repeatedly called out the press for “bad-faith coverage” and “skewed” or biased reporting, such as when the Associated Press implied in August that DeSantis was promoting monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 cases out of his own financial interests.
“They’re afraid of the governor,” Pushaw said in an interview with The Daily Signal, pointing to national media focusing their attention on Florida news. “The left-wing elites, the establishment, and the corporate media are very much afraid of him. And it shows that he’s a good leader, and that he’s doing a good job.”
Pushaw’s vigor in defending the governor from the Associated Press ignited a social media firestorm, drawing national attention. Twitter temporarily suspended the press secretary after she told her followers to call out the author of the Associated Press article. (She later deleted her tweet, saying that she did not want it to be misinterpreted.)
Journalists criticized her actions, and the AP itself accused her of bullying.
Both the White House and federal health officials have since expressed strong support for monoclonal antibody treatment, prompting many on the right to accuse the Associated Press of orchestrating a hit job on the Florida governor.
That wasn’t the first time DeSantis has been on the receiving end of such treatment, and according to Pushaw, it won’t be the last.
Last spring, CBS News’ “60 Minutes” suggested that DeSantis chose the grocery store chain Publix to distribute vaccines in Palm Beach County, Florida, because Publix donated $100,000 to his political action committee.

Because of recent events, I am going to Kroger much, much less and Publix a lot more.
I know 3 persons who got a positive Covid test that also got the Antibodies very quickly.
NONE of them were in Florida.
Yeah, how dare she try to get these delicate flowers to tell the truth once in a while?

” “The left-wing elites, the establishment, and the corporate media are very much afraid of him. And it shows that he’s a good leader, and that he’s doing a good job.””
Great leader, great job!
I will vote for DeSantis for any office he runs for.
Excellent article! I enjoyed reading every word of it. Looks like our wonderful Gov. DeSantis scored another victory with this outstanding press secretary!
