    Isaac Schorr explains at National Review Online why the new presidential secretary is "living her best life."

  • White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, she of the "great inane raised-in-Greenwich look" on her face, has already been hailed as "refreshing," and even "wise" in her new role. This praise arrives less than a week into her tenure as President Biden's chief spokeswoman, and comes from the members of the press meant to serve as objective conduits between the executive branch and the American people. You can forget about that.
  • In a column, CNN's Brian Stelter gushed that "Biden's first day, and Psaki's first day, sent a message that functional government is back" lauding the new press secretary for her assertion that "we [the administration and the press] have a common goal, which is sharing accurate information with the American people." ...
  • ... Over on MSNBC, Joy Reid brought PBS NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor on to her show to explain that "We're [the press] going to ask tough questions, I'm going to ask tough questions. But at least we're in a situation where they're [the Biden administration] saying, 'We're going to level with you. We're not going to lie to you upfront. We're not going to make things up.'" Alcindor was able to deduce all that after the first day of Biden's presidency! ...
  • ... The truth is, these media figures aren't as much pleased by the return of decorum and truthfulness to the briefing room — the former having actually returned and the illusion of the latter having been brought by the former — as they are relieved that their Great Vacation has begun. After four years of having to, to hear them tell it, put their lives on the line for the truth, America's journalists are ready for a break. And if they can make a convincing case that the new White House is as committed to sticking to the facts as they claim to be, they can have it.
