Remember when Chris Cillizza SWORE the media do not pick a side?
Well, he lied because they are definitely Team Psaki.
White House Reporters 'Rooting' for Jen Psaki Gush About Her in Magazine Feature: 'Professional, Pleasant, Lovely' https://t.co/KdbnOuOJax

Members of the White House press corps made the remarks for a Washingtonian report published on Wednesday, which honed in on the “awkward feeling of rooting” for the spokesperson reporters are general expected to scrutinize. “She takes questions from everybody,” chief ABC News Washington correspondent Jon Karl mused to the publication. “She doesn’t get rattled. She doesn’t lose her cool.”
“She’s a pro, you know?” chief New York Times White House correspondent Peter Baker added.
“She’s like any other competent, professional, pleasant, lovely press person from any other era,” added a White House reporter who wasn’t named. The reporter said Psaki had a “sunny” demeanor that made reporters “feel good about their interactions,” adding, “She’s never going to be super-helpful, and that’s frustrating, but that’s kind of her job. It’s one of those weird things where you leave the process feeling good about it even though, when you hang up the phone, you realize: F—, she said nothing helpful.”
And we just threw up a little in our mouths.
Hey, it’s ok if she lies to us because she works for the guy we voted for.
They really are a silly bunch.
These people didn't torch their credibility with how they treated McEnany or Trump. They torched it with how they turned around and treated Psaki. https://t.co/Yeij9kLG1y

So not a good visual.
Let’s circle back and come full circle.

She is all of that as long as the question posed is easy.

The treatment of Psaki is certainly the death knell of any denials, but the credibility was torched before
