During a heated interview Sunday, CNN’s Brain Stelter told White House counselor Kellyanne Conway that it’s not the news network’s duty to do PR for the Trump administration.
Stelter laid in to Conway as she attempted to defend the president and former press secretary Sean Spicer from “unnecessary abuse” and the “unfair” manner in which CNN has covered the weeks events.
“It’s not our job to do your PR, it’s your job and it seems the White House this week admitted that there has been a lot of failures because the press secretary all of the sudden resigned and left his job,” Stelter told Conway on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”
“That’s Sean’s decision, and Sean was up against incredible odds and as the president said in the tweet about Sean, he thanks him for his service and thinks he took a lot of unnecessary abuse,” Conway responded.
The Trump administration’s feud with CNN has been a never-ending saga that began before he even took office. The network now flaunts its contempt for the president in every aspect of its coverage of the White House, and Trump has responded with unrelenting accusations of “fake news”.
The mutual hatred wasn’t lost on Conway as she opened the interview, as she let Stelter know where the White House stands on CNN right from the get go.
“We’re very happy to take questions from an outlet that I think has been incredibly unfair and systematically against this president. I guess you made the business decision to do so,” she said.
“You said the company made a business decision to be unfair to the president, when in fact what we are trying to do is cover an unusual president and try to figure what the heck is going on in a White House that seems awfully dysfunctional,” Stelter responded.
