In a fiery exchange during today’s press briefing at the White House, reporter Steven Nelson from the New York Post let his frustration be known to Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. It appears that Nelson had been waiting patiently for his turn to ask a question, but to his dismay, he had been overlooked for quite some time. Frustrated by this, Nelson couldn’t help but express his feelings about being ignored.

Nelson, clearly annoyed and feeling the disrespect from Jean-Pierre, didn’t hold back in expressing his frustration. He pointed out that it had been an incredibly long period since he had last been called on to ask a question. Nelson even emphasized the importance of the New York Post, highlighting that it is one of the largest and most widely read newspapers in the country. By neglecting to acknowledge Nelson, it seemed as though Jean-Pierre was disregarding the significance of a free and independent media.
Why do they even show up. Just bypass this process. One can find information elsewhere. She’s just a liar.

This confrontation once again raises concerns about the Biden administration’s approach to transparency and their willingness to engage with the press. It’s becoming all too common to witness press briefings where important questions are sidestepped or left unanswered. This lack of accountability from the White House undermines the integrity of the press and hinders the public’s right to know.
It’s disheartening to see this disregard for a free and independent press, especially from a press secretary who is supposed to be a liaison between the administration and the media. This incident further highlights the need for true transparency and responsiveness from those in power. The American people deserve answers, and it’s time for the Biden administration to step up and provide them.
