BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Today News Africa reporter Simon Ateba’s longtime feud with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is now coming to a head.

Ateba claims he is being removed from the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) as retribution for pressing Jean-Pierre on tough issues and asking hard questions.

“They refuse to renew my membership,” Ateba told Tucker Carlson on. “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 White House responded by saying they were not censoring Simon Ateba. But instead they were enforcing their new policy of “only allowing Africa-Americans to ask question, and not just plain old Africans.”
