Liberal media supplying talking heads in Biden admin

White HouseJoe Biden is putting together a White House communications team and to no one's surprise, it is loaded with mainstream media pundits.

The names made public so far include Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman who is fresh off a stint at CNN. She is slated to be White House press secretary if Biden is officially sworn in as president.

In a second move, Symone Sanders would jump from CNN to Kamala Harris' staff while MSNBC is expected to lose Karine Jean-Pierre to her role as deputy press secretary at the White House.

Scott Whitlock of Media Research Center says the revolving door between the mainstream media and Democrat administrations is spinning off its hinges.

“These are the people who, for the last four years, have essentially acted as surrogates for the Democrats,” he tells One News Now. “So it would seem like it would fit perfectly to have people like Jen Psaki, and others that come from the liberal media, and go directly to the Biden administration.”

Anchors and reporters such as Jake Tapper at CNN, who have been critical of Fox News for drawing from the Trump administration, have been strangely silent on the moves. Whitlock says that's not a fair comparison anyway.

“Fox, for as much as the left and liberals in the media want to bash it, they do have Democrats on there for balance and just to have a good sparring contest,” he points out.

To hear the mainstream media gush over the Biden team is amusing, Whitlock adds.

“It's going to be fascinating to see what happens to all these media watchdogs in the press where they suddenly become little lap dogs,” he says.
