Study Finds Karine Jean-Pierre Unresponsive to 98% of Allegations Regarding Biden’s Corruption and Scandals

In 2023, Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House Press Secretary, responded to a mere eight questions out of 75 White House briefings regarding the corruption allegations and other scandals surrounding President Biden, as revealed by a study from the Media Research Center (MRC) on Monday.

“Of the 337 scandal-related questions that White House reporters asked, Jean-Pierre provided a definitive answer to just eight of them (2.37 percent),” MRC senior research analyst and media editor Bill D’Agostino found in a recent study. “This figure tracks very closely with our findings from the first half of 2023, in which the Press Secretary answered only six out of 252 questions (2.38 percent).”

Reporters primarily concentrated on Biden’s purported mishandling of classified documents, as indicated by the study. Jean-Pierre addressed merely 2.27% of the total 220 questions posed by reporters on this particular topic.

“By contrast, the number of questions about Biden family corruption doubled during the same period, from 35 by the end of June to 52 all year,” the study pointed out. “Of those 87 questions, only three (3.44 percent) got substantive answers.”

Reporters exhibited limited interest in questioning the discovery of a baggie of cocaine in the West Wing on July 2, prompting a Secret Service investigation that concluded without identifying a suspect. Despite the White House receiving 30 questions on the matter across five briefings from July 5 to July 17, Jean-Pierre provided a substantive response to only a single question, according to the MRC.

Furthermore, Jean-Pierre consistently avoided engaging with reporters on topics related to the Biden family’s financial dealings, except for three instances. Notably, Biden has conducted fewer interviews with the press compared to his predecessors, holding fewer press conferences and granting fewer interviews despite his initial commitment to restoring norms in the White House.

In February, Biden faced scrutiny in interviews with PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff and ABC’s David Muir regarding the classified documents scandal. Subsequently, he participated in a series of friendly interviews in the spring with “The Daily Show” guest host Kal Penn, NBC’s Al Roker, and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.

“This would’ve never happened with Kayleigh McEnany at the podium,” founder and president of the MRC, Brent Bozell, told Fox News Digital in a statement. “The leftist media hacks don’t even cover when their own reporters ask Karine tough questions. That’s how corrupt the pro-Biden press are.”

Jean-Pierre did not provide a comment in response to a request from Fox News Digital. This report includes contributions from Joseph A. Wulfsohn and Brandon Gillespie of Fox News.
