NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen last Thursday on the "Recode Media with Peter Kafka" podcast suggested that Trump aide Kellyanne Conway be booted from TV news interviews.
"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," said Rosen.
"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.”
Some journalists publicly agreed with him on social media, with some mentioning Conway's comments offering "alternative facts"during an interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd.
