DOOCY TIME: "So, as you talk about plans on the other side, it was this President's plans that contributed to inflation, right?

KJP: No, it was not."

DOOCY: How?

KJP: "It was this President's plan...[He] turned the economy back on...[O]utside factors...have led us to today." Doocy: If things are going so great, then why is it that WH officials are trying to redefine recession?

KJP: No, we're not redefining [it].

Doocy: "If we all understand [it] to be 2 consecutive quarters...& you have WH...say...that's not...how is that not redefining [it]?

Are you familiar w/a reason that he decided not to send his physician here to answer our questions the way...predecessors have[?]"

Jha insists we've heard from him thru public statements....

And today, extremist so-called leaders are criminalizing doctors & punishing women for making health care decision for themselves.'"

KJP: "Well, she is correct...."

Of course he limited the replies. A couple things here from Terry Moran (D-ABC).

1. It's rich that liberals have decided "lock down[s]" are bad now even though that's not what this is. I think we can all agree kids can't willy nilly walk out of school and walk around whenever. 2. I would think parents would want multiple layers of doors before you actually get near kids. There's a reason not just anyone can be a teacher and we don't let in convicted sex offenders. And surveillance...duh.

3. If this is all bad, why do we have airport security, Terry?

DOOCY TIME: "Why did you guys say anything about the leaked draft memo at the Supreme Court"

Psaki: "How do you mean?

Doocy: "In the past, you have declined to comment on leaked materials. So, why now?" Psaki: "Well, Peter, I think, as you would know...Supreme Court confirmed this...was accurate even if it is not the final opinion.

Doocy: "[Biden] had a statement out before they confirmed..it was real, so what changed?"

Psaki: "And...we don't know if this is accurate[.]"

NBC's 'Today' had a puffball segment Wednesday cheering the genocidal Chinese for their #BeijingOlympics in February and star Eileen Gu, the American teen who chose to compete for China.

She then allowed Gu to dismiss China's record b/c she wanted to "us[e] sport as a force of communication" to introduce Chinese people to snow

MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle: "[W]e've talked about the good news about wages being up so much over the past year. When you account for inflation, hourly wages are actually down almost 3%...For those at the bottom...huge blow."

This -- from USA Today -- is truly insane.

"Marsha Blackburn asked Ketanji Brown Jackson to define 'woman.' Science says there's no simple answer." usatoday.com/story/life/hea… This isn't a column, editorial, guest op-ed, or even one of those you might see labeled as "analysis."

This is a news article from USA Today's "Health & Wellness" section.

AP's @ChrisMegerian: "You've warned about...chemical weapons being used. Have you gathered specific intelligence...and would the U.S. or NATO respond w/military action if he did use" them?

Biden says he can't answer the first part and it depends on how bad for the second part. Bloomberg's @josh_wingrove: "[H]ave you seen any indications of action...from China that has led you to believe whether they will intervene and help Russia[?]...Can you say whether the conversation today turned to the subject of food shortages and what the U.S. will do[?]"

LAZY: Wednesday's @CBSEveningNews ran what was billed as the latest in their "Eye on America" series about how one Tennessee school district is addressing what's become a nationwide teacher shortage.

Sounds great, right?! Here's the problem: It aired on CBS a month ago. Rewind to February 17's @CBSMornings and correspondent Meg Oliver's piece was almost identical (minus the length since 'Evening News' is only 30 minutes with commercials).
