Jen Psaki made her next career move official with this head-turning announcement
Jen Psaki left the Biden administration.
Psaki’s new landing spot is now clear.
And Jen Psaki made her next career move official with this head-turning announcement.
MSNBC made the worst-kept secret in Washington official by announcing that Jen Psaki officially joined the network and would host a show on the Peacock streaming platform.
“Jen’s sharp wit and relatability combined with the mastery of the subjects she covers have made her a household name across the nation,” MSNBC President Rashida Jones stated. “Her extensive experience in government and on the campaign trail and perspective as a White House and Washington insider is the type of analysis that sets MSNBC apart. She’s a familiar face and trusted authority to MSNBC viewers, and we look forward to her insight during this consequential election season.”
Psaki released her own statement heralding the move to MSNBC by outrageously claiming that she would host a fact-based program.
“Fact-based and thoughtful conversations about the big questions on the minds of people across the country have never been more important, and I’m thrilled to join the incredible MSNBC team,” Psaki declared. “My time in government, from the White House to the State Department, and years before that on national political campaigns, will fuel the insight and perspective I bring to this next chapter. I can’t wait to create a space on streaming where we break down the facts, get to the bottom of what’s driving the issues and hopefully have some fun along the way.”
Jen Psaki flouted professional ethics and the idea of public service by maintaining her position as White House Press Secretary while negotiating with MSNBC and CNN to host a cable news program.
Once it was learned that Psaki intended to join MSNBC, she should have left the administration.
Instead, Psaki carried on as Press Secretary, answering questions from future colleagues and also leaving open the question of if she was answering questions on behalf of the administration or if she couched her answers so as not to offend MSNBC’s left-wing audience.
It was an untenable situation that the press should have pushed back against.
But journalists were afraid to call out Psaki for two reasons.
The first is that they are supportive of a Democrat President and want to see the Party succeed.
The second, and more sinister reason, is they want to get booked on Psaki’s show, so they did not want to upset her by calling out the blatant conflict of interest.
