NEW NewsBusters Podcast: How Is Jen Psaki Struggling at 'Doocy Time'? with Curtis Houck

December 3rd, 2021 8:19 PM

The toughest part of Jen Psaki's White House briefing is dealing with respectful hardballs from Fox's Peter Doocy. On this episode of the Podcast, our briefing specialist and Managing Editor Curtis Houck discusses how Doocy made Psaki's spin this week just too lame to take seriously. 

It is that time of the year that it's completely fair to ask Biden if he feels responsible for the management of COVID, considering he suggested in the last 2020 presidential debate that anyone presiding over that death toll was unfit to be president.

We begin with the sappy musical background announcing the George Stephanopoulos interview with Alec Baldwin on ABC. Scott Whitlock put together a package on that promotional syrup. He noted it was so bad that Mika Brzezinski said it was "cringeworthy."
