White House Caught Pushing Lies Once Again

BUSTED - White House Caught LYING!

6906

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre presented a substantial amount of inaccurate information during an audio-only press briefing on January 16th. In her statements, she incorrectly asserted that the Texas Military Department obstructed US Border Patrol agents in their efforts to save a migrant family from drowning. This narrative has already been contradicted by both the Department of Justice and Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Additionally, Jean-Pierre provided inaccurate information when asserting that police officers died due to injuries sustained during the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. Contrary to her statement, the only fatality directly linked to the riot was Ashli Babbitt, a participant who was shot by a plainclothes officer.

Accusations of White House press secretaries distorting the truth are not uncommon, and Jean-Pierre’s recent actions were notably deceptive. Jen Psaki, the former press secretary, has not addressed her involvement in providing misleading information about White House ethical protocols related to Hunter Biden’s art. Presently, she is a host on MSNBC, a platform viewed by some as having leanings towards Democratic National Committee messaging.

Detractors argue that Psaki, akin to her counterparts, might be driven by the substantial salary associated with presenting a narrative that aligns with the administration’s agenda. Facial expressions observed in press briefings, notably the frequent use of the phrase “I don’t have anything on that,” evoke suspicions of potential deception.

The inquiry arises: What prompts newsrooms to allocate significant resources to cover these press briefings, which appear to have evolved into exercises in dishonesty and manipulation? The daily briefing seems more like a strategic maneuver than an authentic channel for factual disclosure. White House press secretaries appear to primarily function as defenders of the chief executive, even if it involves resorting to disinformation.

Examining past administrations uncovers multiple cases of statements that were not completely accurate. In 2013, Jay Carney, a representative for Obama, supported the misleading claim, known as the “Lie of the Year,” that individuals could keep their health care plans. In 2016, Josh Earnest, another representative for Obama, spread the untrue information of Russian collusion. Furthermore, in 2017, Sean Spicer, a representative for Trump, inaccurately stated that the inauguration had the largest audience ever.
