White House will investigate after reporter ‘misrepresented herself’ at Harris press conference in Mexico

Vice President Kamala Harris has received her share of sympathetic media coverage, but one reporter’s sycophantic questions during her recent trip to Mexico raised eyebrows.

The White House now says that it is “looking into” the situation after the woman was wrongly identified as a journalist with the Spanish-language news outlet Univision, the Daily Wire reports.

“It’s an honor”

The woman, Maria Fernanda Reyes, was identified only as Maria Fernanda when she was called on to ask a question.

She went on to confirm that she voted for President Joe Biden in November’s election, expressing a desire to aid “women of color on both sides of the border” and asking what Harris planned to do in that regard.

“Thank you Madame Vice President,” Reyes said. “For me, it’s an honor because I actually got to vote for the first time as a nationalized citizen. I voted for you.”

Univision subsequently clarified that the woman has “no association” with the network. It does employ a reporter named Maria Fernanda Lopez, but she works in Miami and said she has never even been to Mexico.

“We are looking into this”

“Thank you for bringing this to our attention,” said Symone Harris, a top Harris spokesperson. “We are looking into this.”

Fox News identified Reyes as an “entrepreneur” based in San Francisco, California, who was invited to the event in Mexico through her political connections.

She has insisted that the entire situation is a misunderstanding, but the White House claimed that she “misrepresented herself to both Univision and to the vice president’s staff.”

While skeptics might assume the White House is attempting to cover something up, it is possible that the whole ordeal is the result of an embarrassing mix-up.

In any case, it does nothing to help the public image of a vice president already seen as too cozy with a sympathetic press corps. The worst part of the controversy could be that it is now harder than ever to tell the difference between an actual journalist and a partisan operative posing as a reporter.
