Here's an update:

‘We passed — those are the facts’: CNN publicly calls out Kellyanne Conway’s new lies about show invite

The article also says:

Quote:
Shortly after CNN’s message, MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski sent out a cryptic message telling CNN that it was “not the first” show to decline an offer to have Conway on air.

As well as on Faux News...why idiots watch that fake news channel I don't know.

Good for the only news network I trust to ban Trump's version of Baghdad Bob.

This whole thing sounds like pot calling kettle. During elections I have seen Anderson lying and get caught by even Trump. There are numerous instances where they took side with Hillary without providing proper proof. Other than some lies, one thing Conway does is, instead of playing along with she brings other side of stuff. When CNN asks about Trump misbehavior with women, she brings up Billy boy stuff. Basically she never answers questions.

CNN considers permanent ban for Kellyanne Conway over

I would love to see other networks start refusing to put this blatant liar on the air.
CNN bans the truth from their programming. Nothing new.

Then they need to ban almost ALL of their anchors and journalists since they lie daily and just make things up.

Actually, I would like to see CNN Banned from any Official News Events and have all their Press Credentials revoked for being a Fake News Network, and assisting the DNC in trying to rig the Election.

Credibility and CNN in the same sentence makes me chuckle.

No matter what reasons they create for themselves, this just further cripples CNN's ability to report on political issues in a timely fashion. Kick everyone on Trump's side off of CNN and you lose all credibility for calling yourself an unbiased source. Would have been better to just suck it up and deal with her as she is.

Not sure how things work in your part of the world, Boris, but if the Trump team revoked CNN's WH press credentials, CNN would still have access to all sorts of other newsworthy folks to interview.

Plus, after Trump's campaign of calling the press dishonest every chance he gets and setting up an adversarial relationship with every reporter but Sean Hannity, if he dropped the hammer on CNN, the rest would be on him until Newsweek would look positively supportive.

Trump is trying his best to make sure his base doesn't believe anything but his tweets and what Breitbart puts out.

The rest of the country is not buying his line of B.S.

Personally, I think it's a bad idea.

She speaks for the President. They should let her on their network, but they should hold her accountable, and call her out at every step of the way if she lies. (uhh, I mean "when" she lies).

IMO, it is wrong for the media to refuse to report on the administration. It would be wiser to report exactly what she says, and then either substantiate it, or shred it, with facts.

(Then, they can be called biased, for reporting the truth. Without this, they don't even get that privilege.)
