In a dramatic confrontation during today’s White House press briefing, Steven Nelson, a reporter from the New York Post, erupted on Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for not taking his questions for an extended period.
Nelson, clearly frustrated by the slight, began, “You haven’t called on me in two seasons, Karine.” Jean-Pierre responded with a simple “Go ahead,” giving Nelson the floor to another reporter.
Nelson didn’t hold back.
“You should be ashamed of that! That shows disrespect to a free and independent media,” the reporter jabbed. “It’s one of our country’s largest and most widely read newspapers, Karine. That shows contempt for a free and independent press!”
Jean-Pierre, just like President Biden, has earned a reputation for not answering questions during press briefings. For certain news outlets, it seems sometimes you’re in season, and sometimes you’re out.
Why do they even show up. Just bypass this process. One can find information elsewhere. She’s just a liar.
