Today News Africa reporter Simon Ateba, who has gotten into many fiery exchanges with White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, is being censored by the White House.

Ateba said earlier this month that he’s being removed from the White House Correspondents Association as punishment for actually asking KJP real questions, something few so-called reporters actually do. 

"They refuse to renew my membership," Ateba told Tucker Carlson. "They are trying to help the press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, because when you do the right thing, when you ask the right question, they try to silence you and try to censor you." "The only thing they are doing to me right now is trying to punish me for trying to be a real journalist for asking the question that the American people really care about," he continued. "And it's shameful. It's a disgrace, and the president of the White House Correspondents Association, Tamara Keith, who worked for NPR, a publicly funded media organization, should be ashamed of herself."

Earlier this year, in January, Ateba told KJP “You don’t seem to be a good fit for the job.” 

At this point, we don’t see how even the rest of the Biden administration doesn’t agree with that assessment.
