Psaki to Revise Book After False Claim About Biden’s Actions

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced that she will be making changes to the next edition of her new book, Say More, after a claim she made about President Joe Biden was found to be false. Psaki had asserted that the President only glanced at his watch after a ceremony honoring the 13 Marines who tragically lost their lives in a bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan, during the U.S. withdrawal from the country in 2021. However, multiple photos and videos showed Biden checking his watch repeatedly during the ceremony, contradicting Psaki’s claim.

In her book, Psaki referenced a USA Today fact check, mistakenly attributing it to the Washington Post, to support her assertion. The USA Today fact check actually confirmed that Biden checked his watch multiple times, including during the ceremony itself. Psaki has since stated that the specific details about the number of times Biden looked at his watch will be removed in future reprints and the ebook.

This update to Psaki’s book comes after Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota also announced changes to her recently released book due to errors in the original edition. Noem’s book, No Going Back: The Truth on What’s Wrong with Politics and How We Move America Forward, faced criticism for a story in which she recounted shooting her family’s failed hunting dog, Cricket.

Psaki’s admission of the need for updates to her book, along with similar actions by Noem, reinforces the importance of accuracy and transparency in all forms of media. It is crucial for public figures to take responsibility for misinformation and take appropriate steps to correct the record.
