We always read about a reporter and a WH press secretary barking at each other over a topic and details only to have the left/right media claim victory of sorts.

‘Present your data’: Jen Psaki smacks down Peter Doocy’s gotcha question on Keystone Pipeline jobs – By David Edwards (Raw Story) / Feb 8 2021
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday challenged Fox News correspondent to back up his question on Keystone Pipeline job losses with actual data.
During a White House press briefing, Doocy suggested that President Joe Biden had failed to keep his promise on creating green energy jobs.
“When is it that the Biden administration is going to let the thousands of fossil fuel industry workers — whether it’s pipeline workers or construction workers who are either out of work or will soon be out of work because of a Biden [executive order] — when it is and where it is that they can go for their green job?” Doocy asked.
‘When Do They Get Their Green Jobs?’: Psaki Jousts With Fox’s Peter Doocy About Laid Off Oil And Gas Workers – By Brandon Gillepsie (Daily Caller) / Feb 8 2021

“When is it that the Biden administration is going to let the thousands of fossil fuel industry workers, whether it’s pipeline workers or construction workers, who are either out of work or will soon be out of work because of the Biden EO, when it is and where it is they can go for their green job?” Doocy asked. “That is something the administration has promised. There is now a gap, so I’m just curious when that happens, when those people can count on that?”
