Frustration Among Reporters With White House Press Secretary Is Reaching a Boiling Point

From CNN’s Reliable Sources with Oliver Darcy:

Frustration among White House reporters with press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is reaching a boiling point.

That is according to conversations I had on Wednesday with more than a half-dozen White House reporters who painted a picture of a White House press corps that has grown exasperated with Jean-Pierre and does not believe she is well equipped to handle their inquiries. The reporters, who asked not to be identified in order to speak freely, pointed to Jean-Pierre’s insistence on sticking to talking points and an episode last week where a key assertion she made from the podium ultimately did not hold up.
