We still can’t get over the time the press accused Sarah Huckabee Sanders of posting a fake photo of a pie she’d claimed to have baked — and then when she brought a pie in, April Ryan assured us she wouldn’t touch it; it might be poisoned or something. Jen Psaki has the Easter bunny bring in cookies for the press corps, though, and everyone digs in like kindergartners at snack time.
It must be nice to be Psaki and know you’ll have a pliant and receptive audience every time you enter the White House briefing room, and that you’ll get the deluxe treatment when appearing on TV. Remember CNN’s Brian Stelter asking her how the press could do a better job?
Here’s Psaki on with Nicolle Wallace, who advises her to “stand her ground,” even though the “vast majority” of reporters in the briefing room give her high marks. Of course they do, because the vast majority are Biden supporters.
Wallace to Psaki: "You get such high marks from the vast majority of the people in the room. You spar a bit with some of the president’s detractors. I’m sure privately they give you grudging respect. How do you feel it’s going?

Haven't seen an interview quite this sweet or loving since Brian Stelter asked Jen how he could better serve her. https://t.co/zcxYRG3dYA

you should bring a press secretary on to discuss news coming out of the administration, not give them a platform to have a viral therapy session i mean jesus christ

Nauseating, but of course, that’s the least bad part of it. The press is there to hold government to account yet we get this? The corporate media is indeed the enemy of the people.
