Doocy vs. Psaki: Is It Official Policy For Biden Not To Take Questions From FOX News?

|

FOX News White House correspondent Peter Doocy quizzed White House press secretary Jen Psaki at Friday's briefing about President Joe Biden's decision to snub him at his press conference on Thursday. Psaki argued that Biden has taken his questions in the past and she regularly calls on Doocy in the briefing room.

"I would say that I’m always happy to have this conversation with you, even about your awesome socks you’re having on today — you’re wearing today — and have a conversation with you even when we disagree," Psaki said at the briefing.


PETER DOOCY, FOX NEWS: Okay, and just one more about yesterday. We noticed, starting at the end of the campaign and then into the transition and here at the White House, anytime that the President has an event where he’s given a list of reporters to call on, Fox is the only member of the five-network TV pool that has never been on the list in front of the President. And I’m just curious if that is an official administration policy.

JEN PSAKI, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: We’re here having a conversation, aren’t we?

Q Yes, but the President —

MS. PSAKI: And do I take questions from you every time you come to the briefing room?

Q Yes, but I’m talking about the President.

MS. PSAKI: Has the President taken questions from you since you came in — since you — since he came into office?

Q Unfortunately —

MS. PSAKI: Yes or no?

Q — only when I have shouted after he goes through his whole list. And the President has been very generous with his time with Fox. I’m just curious about this list that he is given.

MS. PSAKI: So —

Q The only member of the five-network pool never on it, dating back to when he resumed in-person events in Wilmington during the end of the campaign.

MS. PSAKI: Well I would say that I’m always happy to have this conversation with you, even about your awesome socks you’re having on today — you’re wearing today — and have a conversation with you even when we disagree. The President has taken your questions. And I’m looking forward to doing Fox News Sunday this Sunday for the third time in the last few months.

I think we got to move on because we got limited time.
