Multiple White House Correspondents unleashed on Press Secretary Karine-Jean Pierre in the latest edition of CNN’s Reliable Sources Newsletter.
“You just get the feeling that you’re wasting your time and whatever is in front of her in the binder is all she is going to say, no matter how many times you ask the question. It’s just a painful waste of time,” said one White House reporter to CNN. “She is arguably the least effective White House press secretary of the television era,” said another.
“A lot of this sounds more like theater criticism than concern about ability to report facts for the American people’s benefit,” a White House spokesperson told Mediaite.
