Jen Psaki Claps Back At Fox News Reporter's Claim That White House Is 'Spying' On Facebook Profiles

During a press conference Fox News employee Peter Doocy—son of Fox & Friends Steve Doocy--made a claim the Biden administration was spying on American's Facebook pages looking for vaccination misinformation.

Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, brought the claims to a full stop as Doocy, yet again, got served.

You can see the exchange here:

The question came after the White House shared 65% of all the false information about the virus and related vaccines are stemming from only 12 profiles on Facebook.

The report was compiled by the Biden administration, but rather from the Center for Countering Digital Hate.

Contrary to or oblivious of this fact, Doocy asked:

"For how long has the administration been spying on people's Facebook profiles looking for vaccine misinformation?"

Psaki responded, continuing her answer as Doocy attempted to speak over her.

She said:

"Well, that was quite a loaded and inaccurate question, which I would refute."
"Well Peter first of all, as you know, we're, we're in a regular touch with, with a range of media outlets, as well as – let me finish."

She continued after another interruption:

"As we are, as we are in regular touch with social media platforms, this is publicly open information people sharing information online, just as you are all reporting information on your news stations."

His fellow reporters may not have said much but their faces did the talking for them as they reacted to Doocy's question.


Twitter users had a field day over the Fox News reporter's latest episode of being owned by Psaki.





This was not the first time Jen Psaki has called out Peter Doocy. In recent weeks they have had encounters over Olympic protests and voting rights.
