White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway knocked the mainstream media off their precious pedestal Sunday when she spoke honestly about the dishonest job they’re doing covering the Trump White House.
In an interview with Fox News’ Howard Kurtz on Sunday’s “Media Buzz,” Conway defended President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media and said Trump is being treated unfairly by too many journalists.
She then got to the heart of the problem with the media.
“I think the media spend too much time talking about themselves and covering issues they think are important to them or that they want the American public to focus on,” Conway said.
Conway said she had been paying attention to the media and their coverage of the president, and while not all outlets criticize the president, some still do. When they do that, they are making it all about themselves and not doing their job.
The White House adviser said the media should cover “what the Americans are telling the journalists, including in the media’s own polling, is important to Americans.”
