As Twitchy reported earlier, CNN’s Brian Stelter had White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on as a guest on his “Reliable Sources” show this weekend, where he lobbed such softballs as asking “what do you think we get wrong” when covering President Biden’s agenda. In other words, how can we do a better job for you aside from transcribing your press briefings?
There was a similar vibe Monday as MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace interviewed Democratic majority whip James Clyburn about the House’s voting rights act, without which America will go the way of the Roman Empire:

Wallace told Clyburn she’d keep it brief because she wanted him to fill her with wisdom.
Nicolle Wallace to Democratic majority whip Jim Clyburn: "I'm going to be really brief because I just need you to fill me up with wisdom here"

Cliff's notes: Nicolle Wallace asks Jim Clyburn what he wants her to say.

@NicolleDWallace desperate to redeem herself among the establishment for those years in the George W Bush administration.
It’s so nauseating.

Great lazy lefty interview. Tell me again how Nicole Wallace worked for Republicans? And people are pissed at Trump for draining the swamp.

I think North Korean TV pundits are more critical than the US mainstream news when dealing with a Democratic regime.
That Stelter/Psaki interview was the pinnacle of cringe.

She did it with Beto, remember? Asking HIM how the media can cover him. Unreal.
