NEW NewsBusters Podcast: Loony Liberal Outlets Express Their Love for #PsakiBombs

August 18th, 2021 9:24 PM

White House press secretary Jen Psaki has her detractors -- and she obviously has a devoted pack of fanboys and fangirls. The leftist website MeidasTouch sells "Psaki Bomb" T-shirts, sweatshirts and mugs. Psaki recently granted an interview to Tommy Christopher of Mediaite, whose idea of a tough question was to ask if she knew about this merch, and if President Biden ever talks to her about "Psaki Bombs." 

We discuss this and the recent Vogue magazine profile and interview of Psaki, where old Obama campaign manager David Axelrod gushed that Psaki was the best White House press secretary in his lifetime -- and he's 66.  

Since we're discussing briefings, it's only natural to turn to NB Managing Editor Curtis Houck, who keeps track of all the big televised briefs for NewsBusters and with video tweets at his @CurtisHouck account. What questions would we ask Psaki if we had her on the podcast?
