  • As Daily Caller White House Correspondent Diana Glebova began to ask about the origins of COVID, Jean-Pierre resumed the podium and said that she would not call on “people who yell,” adding that she had no interest in “getting into a back-and-forth” with Glebova after she noted that Jean-Pierre “calls on the same people all the time.”
  • Jean-Pierre, who had asked another journalist to pause his question while Glebova was reprimanded, provided no opportunity to let Glebova request comment from Fauci.
  • Other journalists, including Steven Nelson of The New York Post and Simon Ateba of Today News Africa, were heard asking Jean-Pierre to allow Glebova to ask her “valid” question and “call on people across the room,” causing Jean-Pierre to become exasperated.
