Karine Jean-Pierre Criticized for Ignoring Questions from Reporters

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was criticized by a journalist for ignoring questions from reporters.

New York Post reporter Steven Nelson complained about being ignored on multiple occasions by the White House leader.

"You should be ashamed of that. That shows disrespect to a free and independent media, to blacklist one of our country's largest and most widely read newspapers, Karine. That shows contempt for a free and independent press," Nelson stated after being ignored.

"I'm calling on somebody who I haven't called on for a long time as well. Go ahead," Jean-Pierre responded before moving on.

Nelson later discussed the heated exchange on X over his concerns with Jean-Pierre.

"The @NYPost is our country's oldest daily newspaper. We have 4th-largest print circulation and only NY Times has more web traffic," Nelson wrote.

"@PressSec last called on me in May, and on a colleague in July. The May exchange was also about press freedom issues," Nelson continued.

The criticism is not the first time the White House leader has been challenged over avoiding certain reporters with tough questions.

The growing controversies have continued for some time as Jean-Pierre appears to avoid tough challenges from her audience in favor of questions easier for her to answer or favorable to her views.

The look was not a good one, with at least one White House reporter going viral for calling out claims of biased treatment.
