Psaki’s rumored MSBNC move prompts controversy

White House press secretary Jen Psaki looks set to leave her job soon — but it’s her next move that’s causing controversy.


Psaki is expected to go to MSNBC, where it appears likely she will host a show, perhaps on the network’s streaming platform, Peacock.


The problem isn’t that someone with a high-profile political role is on the cusp of getting a cable news gig. That is a very well-trodden path.


What’s unusual about Psaki’s case is that she has seemingly been negotiating such a deal while still serving as White House Press Secretary. CNN was also widely reported to be trying to secure her services, but apparently lost out to MSNBC.
