CNN’s Brian Stelter spoke with White House communications director Jen Psaki about President Obama‘s new media strategy in office and whether he plans to get involved in the business post-presidency.
On yesterday’s Reliable Sources, Psaki said the White House has been active in reaching out to different audiences with unique interviews. Stelter brought up that infamous interview with GloZell. Psaki said it was a “different kind of interview” they wanted to do.
She talked about the importance of White House press briefings and bemoaned how accuracy has not been that important this past election cycle.
Stelter pointed out that Obama administration critics would say there’s been a lot of “misinformation” from them. Psaki said there’s never been a time when she and her colleagues have been “intentionally dishonest.”
As for the president’s future plans, Psaki said Obama is “interested in how people consume information,” but he won’t be “directly involved in the media business,” contrary to some speculation.
