The Poynter author says Psaki will go down as one of the top White House press secretaries
Poynter, senior media writer Tom Jones, provided a glowing performance review from White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki in a piece on Thursday, declaring that she “will go down as one of the finest to ever hold the title of White House press secretary.”
Psaki, who has served in the role since the beginning of President Joe Biden’s administration, attended her final White House press briefing on Friday. Karine Jean-Pierre will take on the role going forward.
“Psaki has restored honor, dignity and class to the White House briefing room after four years as press secretary for Donald Trump, who seemed more interested in starting fights and criticizing the media than they did their policies and agenda to communicate effectively with government,” Jones wrote. “Psaki was consistently prepared, effective in communicating for the President and always respectful even when sparring with media representatives.”
“Psaki was certainly a welcome change from her immediate predecessor, Kayleigh McEnany, who is widely regarded as one of the most incompetent publicists of all time,” Jones wrote. McEnany served as White House press secretary during part of President Donald Trump’s tenure.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, who sometimes trained with Psaki at briefings, posted a photo of himself with Psaki on Friday: “End of an era in the Brady briefing room! Good luck @jrpsaki”, Doocy tweeted.
Last month, Politico quoted a reporter as saying, “Gossiping with Jen just makes you look like an asshole.”
“Jen [Psaki] is very good at her job, which is unfortunate,” the reporter said, according to Politico. “And the work is a lot less rewarding because you’re no longer saving democracy from Sean Spicer and his men’s suit. Chatting with Jen just makes you look like an asshole.” The outlet didn’t name the reporter cited. Sean Spicer served as White House press secretary during part of the Trump administration.
“Jen Psaki has set the standard for the return of grace, respect and decency to the White House briefing room. I want to thank Jen for raising the bar, communicating directly and truthfully with the American people, while maintaining her sense of humor along the way,” President Biden said in a Explanation earlier this month.
