Media coverage of Biden’s inauguration ‘certainly a contrast’ with Trump’s: Concha

President
Biden’s

media
coverage
at
the
beginning
of
his
presidency
starkly
contrasts
with
his
predecessor
President
Trump,
Fox
News
contributor
Joe
Concha
said
on
Thursday.

“I
went
back
and
watched
some
of
the
clips
from
2017
when
President
Trump
was
inaugurated
and
it
was
called
dark,
it
was
called
dystopian,
it
was
called
divisive.
Certainly,
a
contrast
between
the
two
inaugurations,”
Concha
told
“Fox
&
Friends.”

PSAKI
SAYS
SHE
WILL
BRING
‘TRUTH
AND
TRANSPARENCY
BACK’
DURING
FIRST
WHITE
HOUSE
PRESS
BRIEFING

Media
outlets
came
under
fire
from
even
mainstream
outlets
for
not

hiding
their
enthusiasm
for
the
advent
of
the
Biden
administration.

CNN
pundit-turned-White
House
press
secretary
Jen
Psaki
also
held
her
first
press
briefing
on
Wednesday
and
the
mostly
friendly
questions
were
a
stark
contrast
to
the
way
media
members
treated
the
Trump
administration’s
first
event.
 

Psaki
left
CNN
to
take
a
gig
as
a
senior
adviser
for
the
Biden-Harris
transition
team
and
was
later
named
press
secretary.
The
first
question
she
faced
was
swiftly
mocked
as
a
“softball”
on
social
media
when
Associated
Press
reporter
Zeke
Miller
asked,
“Do
you
see
yourself–your
primary
role
as
promoting
the
interest
of
the
president,
or
are
you
there
to
provide
us
the
unvarnished
truth
so
that
we
can
share
that
with
the
American
people?”

Concha
recalled
the
first
question
posed
to
the
Biden
administration
at
the
first
White
House
press
conference
after
the
inauguration.

“How
else
do
you
answer
that
question,
Bill?
If
you’re
Jen
Psaki,
the
White
House
press
secretary.
Are
you
going
to
tell
the
truth?
Yeah,
I’m
going
to
tell
the
truth.
It’s
like
asking
somebody
if
they
could
actually
keep
a
secret,”
Concha
said.

Concha
said
“most
of
the
questions”
for
the
Biden
administration
were
“hospitable.”
Concha
thought
that
Fox
News’
Peter
Doocy
was
the
only
reporter
to
ask
Psaki
an
“uncomfortable
question.”

“Peter
Doocy
asked
the
only
uncomfortable
question:
do
you
think
that
Nancy
Pelosi
and
Chuck
Schumer
should
drop
a
potentially
divisive
Senate
impeachment
trial–obviously,
given
that
President
Trump
has
already
left
office?
And
Jen
Psaki
kind
of
side
stepped
on
that
and
said,
‘well,
the
Senate
can
multi-task,”
Concha
said.

“So,
that’s
the
preview
of
things
to
come,
now.
It’s
hospitable
now,
Bill,
probably
not
going
to
get
hostile
for
some
time.”
