Jen Psaki Reveals How She Deals With Peter Doocy When The Cameras Are Off
White House press secretary Jen Psaki is known for fighting with Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy almost daily, but she recently told Mediaite that they are not as combative when the cameras are off.
"But my involvement with him, people don't always see that, but outside of the briefing room it's completely professional and hopefully fully approachable," said Psaki, adding, "There's a performative component from the TV side of the briefing" . Room."
Although Psaki Doocy gives one on one - as she does for other correspondents - there is a line in the meeting room.
"I will not be silent if misinformation is spread because this meeting room is really meant for the American people to get information and know what is going on," she told the website.

For his part, Doocy has made similar comments about psaki. He told The Washingtonian in May that it was "a very low blood pressure meeting room," adding that she or someone in her office always does it within hours when she promises to contact him.
The two have regularly clashed in front of the cameras, including last week when Doocy compared President Joe Biden to his predecessor on vaccines. Doocy noted that Trump had promised vaccines and Biden said not to trust Trump. Then Doocy asked if that was why Biden was responsible for the hesitant vaccination.
"Not that we saw in the data," said Psaki.
"I would like to note that at this point, the former president also suggested injecting versions of venom into people's veins to cure COVID," she added. "I think that's a relevant point."
