Kellyanne Conway spent quite a lot of time during her CNN interview this morning dissing CNN.

She took shots at CNN over their ratings and anti-Trump bias and their “facts first” ad and their “most trusted name in news” slogan and how they refuse to cover important news and…

You get the idea.

At various points, Conway suggested to Stelter that CNN just embrace being the anti-Trump network. She said, “Just own it!”

“You’re a very prominent person there,” she told him. “Just say, you know, ‘we’re doing better in the ratings, we’re getting better ad revenues because we’re one of the more anti-Trump than down-the-line outlets.’ Just own it! I think it’s okay to do that.”

Stelter responded, “We’re not anti-Trump, Kellyanne. 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.”
