The worst and most obviously partisan member of the White House press pool Yamiche Alcindor received yet another journalism award from her peers in the corporate media.
The Esserman-Knight Excellence in Journalism Award was bestowed upon Alcindor this week for “her coverage exploring the intersection of race and politics.” According to the award’s website, Alcindor’s ability to cover “a range of issues including the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus on black people and communities of color, the protests following the death of George Floyd, and the consequences of former President Trump’s immigration policies” qualifies her “distinguished service” to be celebrated and advanced in the media world.
The news comes just 10 days after taxpayer-funded PBS announced it would promote Alcindor to moderate the current events show “Washington Week” despite her track record of being a Democrat mouthpiece willing to advance leftist and even untrue narratives.
Like many other journalists in the corporate media world, Alcindor’s partisan antics are often celebrated and encouraged by other corrupt journalists even when they know she is willing to manipulate stories to fit her agenda. In 202o alone, Alcindor received “Journalist of the Year” by the National Association of Black Journalists and the White House Correspondents’ Association’s Aldo Beckman Award for “Overall Excellence in White House Coverage.”
Her newest award comes on the heels of her demonstrating blatant affinity for the Biden administration. During President Joe Biden’s first press conference, the “reporter” asked the Democrat if migrants are crossing the border because they view him as “moral” and “decent.” Alcindor continues to praise Biden and his administration, a drastic shift away from her extremely combative attitude toward former President Donald Trump.
She also takes pride in spreading fake news such as the Jussie Smollett hoax and lending a listening, even compassionate ear to Democrat presidential candidates such as now-Vice President Kamala Harris.
