An online gamer successfully pretended to be a White House reporter and even managed to pose questions to President Biden’s press secretary, according to a new report.
A person who created an online profile as “Kacey ‘Lego’ Montagu” and presented herself as a correspondent for the fictitious “White House News” duped legitimate members of the White House press corps into asking her questions at briefings at least four times, according to a report from Politico.
The article goes on to state the following:
The imposter is believed to be active in the online global gaming platform called ROBLOX, where users jokingly call themselves “Legos.” The person didn’t reveal his or her true identity when reached by Politico but expressed frustration with how the real press is asking questions.
“I love journalism, and I think the press corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment, so I decided I would ensure some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to,” Montagu told the outlet.
During the pandemic, the White House press briefing room is only allowing reporters with certain credentials. They also restrict how many reporters can be in the briefing room at once due to social distancing.
With these guidelines in mind it is not out of the ordinary for reporters to ask questions that have been sent in by other reporters that can’t be there.
Democrat Consultant Tim Hogan tweeted, “Reporters in the White House briefing room pursued a question with Jen Psaki today that was sent in by… a fictitious Lego character named Kacey Montagu. I’m not joking.”
