Jen Psaki is learning sometimes you have to eat your words.
Psaki’s ending a tenure as one of the worst and most dishonest press secretaries in American history.
And Jen Psaki made one prediction that she now lives to regret.
Axios’ Sara Fischer broke the news that Psaki will leave the White House in May to take a job with MSNBC.
Psaki will host a MSNBC show on the streaming service Peacock as well as appear on NBC and MSNBC programs.
Psaki transitioning to cable news host leads to a number of ethical questions about her ability to serve the public as press secretary while at the same time cultivating an audience for her future employer.
This move also caused Psaki’s previous predictions about the death of cable news to resurface.
Psaki appeared on Rob Lowe’s podcast on February 18 where the former West Wing actor remarked that the media focused so much on ratings that the news outlets began promoting conflict and narrative over facts and truth.
“The minute the news media became ratings driven, emotion and conflict drive story, story drives ratings, so that squeezes out rational discourse and everybody now gets the news that they want to get,” Lowe remarked.
Psaki agreed and claimed that the decline in cable news ratings since Donald Trump left office meant that the medium was dying.
“Yeah,” Psaki responded. “You know, I think there’s such an interesting — so I’m going to give you an optimistic view on this right now, which is — cable news is dying, right? The ratings are dwindling, right? And there’s dwindling readership as well of a lot of national newspapers.”
Psaki then hinted at the future direction of her career telling Lowe that streaming platforms would allow for more longform content and discussion of the issues.
“And isn’t from a viewpoint but is telling you and explaining to you what does voter suppression mean? When we say ‘misinformation,’ what is that, right? Or when we say ‘climate change,’ what do we mean by that? And it’s not just about people hugging trees. I mean, you know this, but like a lot of people think about it that way. Like it’s just a liberal issue. It’s not. But maybe will be a form for creating a range of content that is more along those lines than Democrats and Republicans yelling at each other on a set,” Psaki added.
Conservatives long complained about the liberal bias in the media and how there is a revolving door between so-called “news” organizations and Democrat Party politics.
Jen Psaki serving as press secretary while signing a contract with MSNBC confirms that view.
