Kellyanne Conway Humiliates CNN’s Brian Stelter: ‘Stop Being Jealous of FOX News, Brian’ [VIDEO]

CNN's Brian Stelter, Kellyanne Conway

In a heated exchange with CNN host of the Orwellian-named “Reliable Sources,” Brian Stelter, who has previously admitted to spreading “fake news” on the Internet, hilariously, after kissing Obama’s rear end for eight years straight, accused FOX News of being “state-run media,” and adviser to President Trump, Kellyanne Conway hit back in a way that had to hurt.

The segment began with a smug Brian Stelter asking Kellyanne Conway the loaded question, “What specific steps are you and your colleagues taking to try to repair Trump’s credibility?” as he referred to the repeatedly to what he called a “credibility crisis.”

Conway hit back by questioning the credibility of not only the polls, but also of CNN itself after Stelter opined that “The American people are not giving him [President Trump] credit for the economic boom, according to the polls.”

“Yes, they are,” Conway, a professional pollster by trade before joining the Trump campaign last year. “It depends how you ask the question. You have the voice going through your promos saying ‘CNN, the most trusted name in news.’ What evidence do you have of that? I’ve seen polling numbers to the contrary,” she noted.

“CNN used to be a place where people could tune in and get news all day long. Now they get spin and people’s opinions,” Conway said. “And I think CNN should own it. Why not say ‘Look, it’s in our commercial interest at CNN to be anti-Trump. We’re profitable if we’re against the president, most of our viewers are against the president.’ Just own it. Don’t you think that would be more profitable for CNN?”

“I understand that you don’t want an adversarial media,” Stelter responded. “I guess you just want everybody to be like Fox News, state-run media.”

That’s when Kellyanne Conway delivered the skill shot:

“That’s not true. Stop being so jealous of Fox News, Brian, and their ratings. I think that would help if you drop the jealousy a little bit about Fox News. The fact is that we need a media that covers the facts.”

Conway was obviously taking a thinly-veiled shot at CNN’s new “Facts First” ad in which they claim to be a straight news organization that knows the difference between an apple and a banana, an ad they have been relentlessly mocked about on social media.
