A New York Post reporter called out White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Tuesday, saying she was “anti-democratic” for not calling on him during press briefings.
The New York Post is the fourth-largest newspaper in the United States, with an average circulation of just under 136,000 as of March 2023, according to Statista; former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton founded the newspaper in 1801, according to the outlet’s website. “It’s anti-democratic to refuse questions from one of our country’s four largest newspapers, Karine!” New York Post DC correspondent Steven Nelson shouted as Jean-Pierre concluded Tuesday’s press briefing.

Nelson previously clashed with Jean-Pierre during a Oct. 11 White House press briefing over her refusal to call on him. “That shows disrespect to a free and independent media, to blacklist one of our country’s largest and most widely read newspapers, Karine,” Nelson said when Jean-Pierre said she wouldn’t call on him. “That shows contempt for a free and independent press.”

Cameroonian journalist Simon Ateba also clashed with Jean-Pierre and her predecessor Jen Psaki, accusing them of discriminating against him, according to Newsweek.
The New York Post reported on the contents of a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop on Oct. 14, 2020, that included emails related to business dealings by the Biden family. Twitter locked multiple accounts, including the Post’s and the personal account of then-White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the story, citing its “hacked materials” policy.
Over 50 former intelligence officials signed an October 2020 letter that claimed the information from the laptop “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation confirmed the authenticity of some of the contents that month. The Washington Post and The New York Times confirmed the authenticity of the data in March 2022 in articles about investigations into Hunter Biden by the Department of Justice.
