Ethics Watchdog Hammers Biden Admin Over New Press Secretary’s

1430

Because of her long-term friendship with CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux, the next White House Press Secretary has an evident conflict of interest.

Karine Jean-Pierre, the first black and openly gay press secretary in the White House, resides in Washington, DC, with her CNN national reporter and their 7-year-old daughter.

Jen Psaki, the former White House press secretary, was similarly chastised for what seemed to be a conflict of interest when she applied for a job at MSNBC while still working as press secretary.

“This is one of many examples of the corporate media literally in bed with the government it covers,” Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of Breitbart, commented. CNN will continue to serve as the Biden administration’s public relations firm.”

While Malveaux will remain one of CNN’s national reporters, she will not cover the White House or other politics while her colleague takes on her new post, according to network insiders.

While growing up in Queens, Jean-Pierre tweeted a thread during Pride Month last year chronicling her difficult journey to coming out and being embraced by her family.

Concerns over Jean-employment Pierre’s coincide with a similar debate surrounding Psaki, who has not ruled out joining MSNBC.

Psaki was questioned about how it could be ethical to be Biden’s spokesman while negotiating a pay with a media outlet as soon as the probable shift was first revealed by Axios on April 1.
