Joy Behar Takes Undeserved Swipe At Fox News’ Peter Doocy: “Have you had to swat him down much yet?”

The View co-host Joy Behar took an undeserved swipe at Fox News’ Peter Doocy today when speaking to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. Behar started to praise former Press Secretary Jen Psaki and then turned to Peter Doocy.

Behar said: “I always noticed how Peter Doocy from Fox News gave Jen a hard time. You know, he asks questions that are directly given to him from Fox. Have you had to swat him down much yet?

“How do you, how are you handling the disingenuous and ridiculous takes when you’re up there trying to do your job and inform the public?”

Jean-Pierre said:

“So can I say, Joy, and I say this sincerely, the fact that I’m standing here on the White House North Lawn, in the booth, the ABC booth, talking to all of you, is an honor. 

“It is something that I would have never have thought would have happened if you had asked me when I was 10 years old or 12 years old that this is what, or told me this is what I would be doing in the future.

“And it is a complete privilege, and it is a complete honor to walk through these gates every day, knowing that I am speaking on behalf of this president and that I am speaking on behalf of the American public.

“Look, the give and take that I have with the press, I enjoy it. I appreciate it. 

“It is part of the job. And it is something that, that I am looking forward to continue to doing.

“But, yes, it’s a lot of fun to say the least.

Behar said: “Is that what they call it?”

Fox News has said they do not give Doocy questions as if that mattered.

And Joy misses the larger point, Psaki enjoyed dealing with Doocy, they were always respectful to each other.

And team Biden made a conscious decision to engage with Doocy early in his first term because they wanted to reach Fox News viewers.
