On her first day in office, the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, pledged to bring "truth and transparency back to the briefing room," saying she had a "deep respect for the role of a free and independent press."

But less than two weeks into President Joe Biden's administration, reporters are raising concerns about White House press office staffers trying to get them to give advance notice on which questions they play to ask at briefings, The Daily Beast reported.

The issue with asking journalists for their questions ahead of time is that it could give the impression that the media is working in conjunction with the Biden administration, allowing officials time to craft good answers.

She surely is no Kay Mc.

The best birthday present I ever got was Kayleigh McEnany. That was the same day that the lockdowns were supposed to end here. My hopeless, helpless infatuation didn't last long once I found out that she was already taken. But hey, what a ride from afar!

Goldang, she gave me hope for womanhood and the country. I guess it doesn't take too much company action to snuff out the hopes and dreams of a once great nation. I just don't understand the point of it all.

Well, Redbush will let my toxic masculinity flow until the end. Me and Punk did the best we could, I guess we were just operating in the wrong countries. It didn't seem to be a problem until recently.
