CNN’s Brian Stelter, Kellyanne Conway battle on air

Posted Sunday, November 5, 2017 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Kellyanne Conway doesn’t get nearly as much attention as she did in the early months of the Donald Trump administration but she can still verbally punch out when given the chance.

Media columnist Brian Stelter of CNN sparred with her this morning. He criticized the presidential advisor for “pivoting” from questions about the Russian collusion investigation by talking about Hillary Clinton instead.

She said CNN was reaping financial rewards by being “anti-Trump” and that he should just own it.

Stelter’s response?

“We’re not anti-Trump, Kellyanne,” Stelter said. “We’re pro-truth. We are pro-honesty. We’re pro-decency, and this is a tough moment in American history for people that support facts and decency.”
