White House gets away from press briefing without any questions about Fauci’s emails

Following the release of emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci from the early days of the pandemic Tuesday, not a single White House correspondent asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the emails during the entire Wednesday briefing. Instead, they mostly discussed cyberattacks from Russia and national cybersecurity.

Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson expressed her own disappointment on Twitter. She wrote “not even one reporter today in the press pool . . .had the courage to ask.”

Caleb Hull tweeted his bleak opinion about the state of the industry as a whole. “Journalism is dead,” he wrote.

Senior congressional correspondent for The Daily Caller Henry Rodgers agreed, saying it was “honestly insane” to hear that not a single reporter asked about the emails. “Tells you everything you need to know,” Rodgers tweeted.
