If I don’t have an answer to a question I usually just say, “I don’t know.” I might say, “Give me some time to find out.”
Jen Psaki, White House press secretary is becoming famous for “circling back” to any tough questions she might receive from reporters. It’s an easy way to avoid answering in the minute. But, those moments must be awkward for her, don’t you think?
So, Biden’s administration has come up with a sweet solution so that Psaki isn’t always put on the spot like that: They’re seeking premature access to questions reporters plan to ask. That way Jen doesn’t have to have that blank expression on her face that says, “I have absolutely no idea but maybe I can find someone who does.”
And there’s nothing like a blank expression when you claim to have the answers to everything, as the Democrats do.
Regarding the early access, watchdognews.org has reported:
The press team of the 46th president has not refuted claims that they prematurely sought reporters’ questions ahead of time; however, the press team is attempting to justify this by claiming that fishing for questions ahead of time increases daily press briefings’ usefulness and informative nature.
There’s another reason Psaki might want to know the questions in advance: if she doesn’t like your question, you don’t get picked.
Can you even imagine how different things would have been if Kayleigh McEnany had been given that same opportunity? Or Sarah Sanders?
Here’s a response to the Daily Mail from the White House: “Our goal is to make the daily briefing as useful and informative as possible for both reporters and the public.”
Look, there’s a part of me that gets it. These meetings could drag on. Or, Jen could say something she’d regret later, simply because she was flustered or caught off-guard. But to have the ability to pick and choose who you might want to respond to? That sounds a bit like censorship to me.
Any guesses as to which reporters they might choose to avoid?
One thing’s for sure: If there’s anything the Biden White House knows how to do well. . .it’s censor conservatives.
I see more of the same in our future, folks.
