Concerns have arisen about the impartiality of the White House's new Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, former Deputy Press Secretary, due to her romantic relationship with a high-profile reporter for CNN.
Jean-Pierre currently lives together with CNN's Suzanne Malveaux, and the pair are raising a child together.
According to the New York Post, "Karine Jean-Pierre — who next Friday will be both the first black and first openly gay person to hold the key White House post — lives with the network’s national correspondent in Washington, DC, with their seven-year-old daughter."
"CNN will continue to be, in effect, the Biden administration’s communications shop," said Alex Marlow of Breitbart on Twitter on Thursday, referring specifically to Jean-Pierre's appointment.
"Karine Jean-Pierre is married to CNN anchor and national correspondent Suzanne Malveaux. This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers," continued Marlow:
Jen Psaki, outgoing Press Secretary, has also come under fire because she took a job with MSNBC and stayed on with the White House for the next six weeks after it became public.
"I’m sure there won’t be Cuomo-level conflict of interest violations, but expect it to have it bought up in the future," Juwan Holmes of LGBTQ Nation said, in support of Jean-Pierre's appointment, and referring to Chris Cuomo's scandal which ultimately caused him to be terminated with the same CNN network.
