The US State Department’s Jen Psaki got more than she bargained for when announcing the US State Department’s third annual “Free The Press” Campaign, where it supposedly highlights “journalists or media outlets that are censored, attacked, threatened, or otherwise oppressed because of their reporting,” in other countries, when Mike Lee from Associated Press pushed home the point that the US has targeted and “infringed” on the press freedom right here in America.
When asked for a specific name, Lee brought up James Rosen who is being prosecuted for publishing classified information that he did not steal, nor leak, just reported on. The arrogance of highlighting infringement of the press in other countries, yet ignoring the targeting of our own journalists, leaves many speechless in the face of such hypocrisy. Watch as Lee puts Psaki on the spot.
