Recently, Jen Psaki, who served as the press secretary and now works as a contributor for MSNBC, defended the dedication of her network to providing truthful information.
Psaki slammed Fox News and defended MSNBC during an interview on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on CBS’s Monday night broadcast. She stated that MSNBC has a stringent fact-checking procedure that entails confirming sources before airing news broadcasts. Fox News was the target of her criticism.
Her justification of MSNBC’s dedication to truthful reporting, on the other hand, is dishonest in light of the fact that Psaki has a history of supporting false narratives herself. Psaki has questionable credibility as a pundit on topics of factual reporting as a result of her years-long promotion of the disproved conspiracy theory that the former President of the United States, Donald Trump, was a Russian spy.
In addition, MSNBC has a track record of spreading fake news on a variety of major topics, such as the hoax regarding Russia’s collusion with the Trump campaign, the COVID vaccines and virus origins, the lie regarding the “insurrection” on January 6, the laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, and the violence committed by BLM and Antifa. This ongoing dissemination of false information has resulted in criticism from a variety of quarters, including that of comedian Russell Brand, who is famously known for embarrassing network analyst John Heilemann by demanding that Heilemann name just one instance of the outlet pushing false information.
It remains to be seen, in light of MSNBC’s longstanding practice of disseminating false information, whether or not Psaki’s upcoming show, “Inside with Jen Psaki,” will serve as a forum for more of the same. In any event, it is abundantly evident that the dedication of the network to provide truthful news is, at best, questionable.
