Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy confronted press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday about why he was snubbed during President Biden’s first press conference, noting Fox has “never been” on the list of Biden’s pre-approved reporters.
Biden appeared to pick reporters from a pre-determined list on Thursday, ultimately calling on 10 reporters. Doocy, who was on hand to represent Fox News, was not called on and noticed a pattern.
“We noticed, starting at the end of the campaign and into the transition and here at the White House, anytime that the president has an event where he is given a list of reporters to call on, Fox is the only member of the five-network TV pool that has never been on the list,” Doocy said. “I am just curious if that is an official administration policy.”
Psaki responded she was currently taking a question from Fox News, but Doocy indicated he was specifically talking about the president’s pre-determined list.
