Jen Psaki Puts Chuck Todd on Notice, Lands New Weekend Show at MSNBC

Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has put embattled NBC host Chuck Todd on notice by landing a new weekend show on MSNBC.

“Inside With Jen Psaki” will air on Sundays at noon and will target the same audience as Todd’s “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation.”

“I am not going on television to be a mouthpiece,” Psaki said: “

“I am not going to gratuitously attack him, nor am I going to gratuitously applaud him.

“If he deserves applause, I will applaud him.

“If he deserves critique, I will critique him.

“I certainly was critical of the way things were handled around the sharing of information about the documents.

“At the same time, there can be a tendency to make it into a five-alarm fire — like, everything is a disaster.

“My tendency is to provide context when needed.”

George Stephanopoulos, who moved from Bill Clinton’s White House to ABC News, said:

“Sometimes that could be critical: If the president took an action that I would have argued against in the meeting, I’d have no problem making that point.”

“The balancing act is, how are you consistent with your past work and your past beliefs, and still constructive for the audience.”
