Numerous media critics have lashed out at both CNN and host Brian Stelter, after an interview between the latter and White House official Jen Psaki in which Psaki was asked what the press gets “wrong” in its coverage of Joe Biden.
In his interview on Sunday with the press secretary, Stelter opened the proceedings by mentioning the numerous issues the current administration is facing – among them, infrastructure and election reform – but soon jumped to asking. “What do we get wrong?”
Psaki answered that the press didn’t always make clear to readers and viewers how long legislation can take to get passed, and then turned the focus towards the administration of former president Donald Trump.
“Sometimes we forget how strange the last four years got, and when we return to a place where democracy is working, where we’re talking with Democrats and Republicans … it feels foreign, but this is actually how it’s supposed to work,” she said.
