This hasn’t been an easy week for the Trump team and Kellyanne Conway certainly hasn’t escaped the wrath.
The more interviews Kellyanne Conway does, the more the public hates her. Every interview with her is laden with “alternative facts” instead of the truth. She is the queen of creating convoluted responses.
New York University journalism professor, Jay Rosen, came up a brilliant idea.
He believes the media should simply stop interviewing Conway. GQ made the report and included an excerpt from a recent podcast with the professor:
“The logic is, this is a representative of the president. This is somebody who can speak for the Trump administration. But if we find that what Kellyanne Conway says is routinely or easily contradicted by Donald Trump, then that [rationale for interviewing her] disappears. Another reason to interview Kellyanne Conway is, our viewers want to understand how the Trump world thinks. But if the end result of an interview with her is more confusion about what the Trump world thinks, then that rationale evaporates … No, it’s not just lying or spin or somebody who is skilled in the political arts of putting the best case on things or not answering a question, which is a pretty basic method of doing politics. It’s that when you are done listening to Kellyanne Conway, you probably understand less. That’s a problem.”
Reporters are speaking up on Twitter and agreeing with professor Rosen!
Don’t forget this!
