“People don’t see this every day, but we fully recognize Peter Doocy as and many reporters, right? They are doing their jobs and working on behalf of the media organizations they represent and asking, sometimes, their questions that are tough,” Psaki, 42, said in a recent interview with Mediaite. She continued: “But my engagement with him, people don’t always see this, but outside the briefing room, it is entirely professional and entirely, hopefully, responsive.”
Still, Psaki acknowledged that there is a made-for-TV aspect to some of her interactions with reporters when she is behind the podium. “There’s a performative component from the TV side of the briefing room,” she told Mediate. Psaki has said that she believes Fox News has a particular perspective of her and the Biden administration.
“I’m very clear-eyed about the view of Fox News, of me, of the president, of many people who work here. Right. Peter Doocy is a correspondent for Fox News,” she said. “But I have also found my engagements with him to be entirely professional. He’s somebody who engages with our staff, obviously, in the briefing room, but also beyond the briefing room as well.”
Doocy, has made similar comments about Psaki. He told The Washingtonian in May that it’s “a very low-blood-pressure briefing room” and added that when she promises to get back to him on something, she or someone in her office always does, usually within hours.
