Melanie Arter wrote in a Nov. 30 CNSNews.com article:
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany accused the Washington Post of pushing “blinding” propaganda by reporting that former Vice President Joe Biden has selected an “all-female senior White House press team.”
McEnany pointed out that the Trump administration already has an all-female senior communications staff.
McEnany tweeted Monday “President @realDonaldTrump already has an ALL FEMALE Senior White House Press Team.
So does @VP
So does @Flotus
So does @SecondLady
The completely DISCREDITED @washingtonpost once again reveals their blinding propagandist Fake News proclivities”
As we pointed out when CNS' corporate bretheren at the Media Research Center similarly uncritically repeated this narrative, McEnany is wrong -- two press secretaries in Trump's office are actually men. Indeed, as the hated Washington Post noted, this is all a picayune argument over the definition of a "senior" comms job, which obscures the fact that three comms jobs currently held by men under Trump will be held by women under Biden.
That's not the only worship of McEnany CNS has done. On Dec. 1, Arter was in full stenography mode in uncritically repeating another McEnany claim, that "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats have been trying to undermine the U.S. election system for years by allowing illegals on the voting rolls and fighting against signature matching." She also repeated McEnany's bogus complaint about Biden getting credit for an all-female comms team.
In a Dec. 3 post, Craig Bannister gushed that McEnany used a White House press briefing for "subjecting" attending reporters "to a video montage of prominent Democrats violating the very COVID-19 restrictions they’ve imposed on others."
On Dec. 8, Arter uncritically repeated how "McEnany is disputing reports that the Trump administration turned down a chance to buy additional coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer beyond the 100 million doses that was contracted and now has to wait until the summer to get more." In fact, Scott Gottlieb, former Food and Drug Administration commissioner and current Pfizer board member, confirmed that the Trump administration turned down an offer from Pfizer last summer to obtain an additional 100 million doses of its vaccine.
