Conflict of interest: Biden’s new press secretary in relationship with CNN reporter
The political Left and the media establishment form one big club. This is not even close to being the first evidence of that. Think of George Stephanopoulos going from the Clinton White House to ABC News, and Jen Psaki, Jean-Pierre’s predecessor, going to MSNBC. You don’t see, say, Kayleigh McEnany getting a job on CNN. The supposedly objective news outlets are open only to the Left.
“Biden’s new press secretary sparks conflict-of-interest concerns over relationship with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux,” by Lee Brown, New York Post, May 6, 2022:
President Biden’s trailblazing pick for his new press secretary is already being accused of creating troubling conflicts of interest because of her long-term relationship with star CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux.
Karine Jean-Pierre — who next Friday will be both the first black and first openly gay person to hold the key White House post — lives with the network’s national correspondent in Washington, DC, with their 7-year-old daughter.
The Haitian-born press pick gushed about her relationship with Malveaux in Jean-Pierre’s 2019 memoir, “Moving Forward.”

While Jean-Pierre’s groundbreaking pick for the White House post was widely celebrated, it also left some questioning her and Malveaux’s impartiality. CNN’s recent scandals have included now-axed host Chris Cuomo’s behind-the-scenes meddling in brother and then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sex scandals.
It also comes after her soon-to-be-predecessor, Jen Psaki, sparked similar conflict concerns for keeping the top job for six weeks after it was widely reported she’d been hired by left-leaning network MSNBC.
Soon after Jean-Pierre’s new gig was announced, Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of the right-wing news outlet Breitbart, tweeted, “This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers.”
Marlow noted that he had already raised concerns about Jean-Pierre’s relationship with Malveaux in his book, “Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption.”
“CNN will continue to be, in effect, the Biden administration’s communications shop,” his news site, Breitbart, claimed.
“This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers,” tweeted Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of right-wing news outlet Breitbart….
