Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy claimed on Friday that his right-wing network is the only member of the “five-network TV pool that has never been on the list [of networks for Biden to call on], and I’m just curious if that is official administration policy.”
“We’re here having a conversation, aren’t we?” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki replied during Friday’s white house briefing. “And do I take questions from you every time you come to the briefing room?”
“Yes, but…” Doocy said before Psaki interrupted.
“Has the President taken questions from you since he came into office?” she pressed. “Yes or no?”
“Unfortunately, only when I have shouted after he goes through his whole list,” Doocy replied. “And the President has been very generous with his time with Fox. I’m just curious about this list that he is given.”
“I’m always happy to have this conversation with you..even when we disagree. The president’s taken your questions and I’m looking forward to doing Fox News Sunday this Sunday for the third time in the last few months,” Psaki added before moving on to another reporter.
