Joe Biden’s White House press secretary Jen Psaki promises to bring ‘truth and transparency’ back to the briefing room.
White House’s new press secretary Jen Psaki also said in her first press conference that misinformation could be tackled in a number of ways. Although it is difficult, the flow of such erroneous information can be stopped in exchange for accurate data.
The White House press conference became irregular during the time of former President Donald Trump. Trump himself would have appeared on the podium himself instead of the press secretary.
Calling the media ‘fake media’ and insulting journalists by name was a regular occurrence for Trump.
The look of the White House press office has changed since the evening of January 20.
Pressed on how she views her role as new WH press secretary, Jen Psaki says she has "deep respect for the role of a free and independent press in our democracy."

Press Secretary Jen Psaki said there would be a White House press conference on days other than Saturday and Sunday.
At the press conference, President Biden himself will be active in informing the public about Covid-19.
At the first day’s press conference, Jen Psaki briefed everyone on the executive order signed by President Joe Biden. He said President Joe Biden would expect the cooperation and compromise of Democratic and Republican parties to pass the proposed $1.9 trillion civic incentive law.
