Last week, Fox News’ Peter Doocy put White House Press Secretary on the defensive regarding the White House teaming up with Facebook to censor posts.
The exchange was epic, and it had Jen Psaki working overtime as a spin artist.
After the White House expressed outrage over the question, not so shockingly, many mainstream media outlets fell in line and went after Doocy.
Eating Their Own
Think back to all the loaded and inaccurate questions asked by CNN’s Jim Acosta during the Trump presidency.
How often did the majority of the mainstream media turn against him?
I honestly cannot think of a single time and if I am wrong, please correct me.
Doocy’s question here was a legitimate one, and one that free speech advocates have ripped the White House on…
DOOCY: "Facebook used to block people from posting that covid may have originated from a lab… Is there any concern things you are trying to block may some day turn out to be accurate?"@PressSec: "We don't take anything down. We don't block anything." pic.twitter.com/EmGqS44F2G

Even so, Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake slammed Doocy, stating, “Doocy’s claim that the stat Psaki cited was proof of yet more supposed spying is just nonsensical, as he might have found had he done even the slightest bit of due diligence.
“But at least another spying conspiracy theory that can be turned into cable news segments has now been seeded.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper stated, “It’s not true. But once again we see another example of just lies making their way into the airwaves.”
Vanity Fair did a piece on it with the headline, “White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Stuffs Fox News’ Peter Doocy In Another Locker.”
Let me say it again until it really sinks in… state-run media.
This administration says it, and about 95 percent of the mainstream media bite down hard and push the desired narrative.
