“[Fox News] was racist before coronavirus, they are racist during the coronavirus, Fox News will be racist after the coronavirus. So there is nothing new here.”
Incoming press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called Fox News racist in March 2020 on AM Joy on MSNBC.
On March 15, 2020, then-political analyst for MSNBC Jean-Pierre bashed Fox News for calling COVID the China virus:
[Fox News] was racist before coronavirus, they are racist during the coronavirus, Fox News will be racist after the coronavirus. So there is nothing new here. I think the difference is they are all-in on being state TV for Donald Trump, and so they will continue to give the misinformation.
The danger is, so yes, you have Asian Americans right now whose lives are seriously in danger. And, you have their own viewers who can now, the ones who are 60 and older who are watching, this is a health crisis that we’re in, this is a global pandemic, as the WHO have said, and they’re putting their lives in dangers.
Jean-Pierre posted the clip on Twitter.

Just in case it “disappears.”
Jean-Pierre is set to become the press secretary after Jen Psaki leaves this week.
Jean-Pierre’s new job requires daily interactions with Fox News. We all know Peter Doocy doesn’t hold back and asks hard questions.
Also, could someone kindly remind Jean-Pierre that other networks and reporters called COVID the Wuhan Virus in January and February?
Biden’s new Press Secretary:
– 2018 GA gubernatorial election was stolen
– 2016 presidential election was stolen
– AIPAC is racist
– Fox News is racist
Good stuff from the person who will speak on behalf of a president who vowed to heal & restore our nation’s soul! https://t.co/rkMBXQeEhI
