White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday was asked about her plans to join MSNBC.
Jen Psaki is reportedly set to leave the Biden White House for MSNBC, Axios reported Friday.
White House reporters have known these negotiations were going on behind the scenes but they acted surprised and concerned on Friday.
“Is it true that you are leaving the White House to work for MSNBC?” a reporter asked Psaki.

Another reporter followed up with a separate question about Psaki joining MSNBC.
“How is it ethical to have these conversations with media outlets while you continue to have a job standing behind that podium?” NBC reporter Kristen Welker asked.
“I have abided by [ethical and legal requirements] that are imposed on this administration,” Psaki said.
