White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is leaving her position and is being replaced by Karine Jean-Pierre.
Democrats and the media are celebrating the appointment of Jean-Pierre because she is black and gay, but there is a potential conflict of interests here.
Jean-Pierre is married to a reporter for CNN.
One of the problems with our political media class is that too many of them are related, directly or by marriage. In this case, one spouse will be defending the Biden administration while the other is reporting on it. Isn’t that a problem?
NEW WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY KARINE JEAN PIERRE’S PARTNER IS CNN’S SUZANNE MALVEAUX
If you thought the White House was in bed with CNN, you’d be onto something. New White House press secretary Karine Jean Pierre is in a relationship with CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux and the couple has a 7-year-old daughter together.
The 44-year-old Jean-Pierre, who is being hailed as the first black — and gay — White House press secretary, was introduced this week as Little Red Lying Hood’s replacement as Jen Psaki heads over to MSNBC where she’ll continue shilling for Joe Biden’s presidency.
And now a network that went through the Cuomo brothers’ mess finds itself literally in bed with the press secretary. Let’s face it, Suzanne Malveaux has been featured prominently as a national correspondent covering the United States government for a number of years. Now she’s sleeping in the same bed as a woman charged with defending Biden…
Conflict of interest much?
Does anyone see anything wrong with this?
As I reported in Breaking the News, Karine Jean-Pierre is married to CNN anchor and national correspondent Suzanne Malveaux.
This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers. https://t.co/TIfOxLywSH

Couldn’t Biden have picked someone who isn’t married to a journalist?
