White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is speaking up for President Donald Trump and the “scant” coverage his recent beneficial actions are receiving in the media.
While the mainstream media is still drooling over Trump’s response to Charlottesville violence, and using it to suggest a major divide in the nation, he is actually doing the opposite.
Trump signed a bill expanding assistance in procuring disability benefits for veterans, and encouraged out country to untie as one in a speech this week — but the media was silent.
On Fox News’ Fox & Friends Thursday, Conway destroyed the media for the “huge disconnect” between what Americans actually care about and the narrative the media is trying to create.
“Yesterday, the president beseeched the nation to unify, to appeal to our better angels, our higher purposes, the things that bind us together as Americans. We’re all on the same team. That got scant coverage.”
She continued with her harsh but true criticism of the mainstream media, saying, “this is become opinion commentary disguised as reporting.”
And she’s not the only one saying that.

Emails from the editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, Gerard Baker, were leaked Wednesday, in which he criticizes his own staff for biased reporting.
“Sorry. This is commentary dressed up as news reporting,” he wrote. “Could we please just stick to reporting what he said rather than packaging in in exegesis and selective criticism.”
It’s no secret that the majority of the mainstream media inflect personal, often liberal, opinions into their so called “honest” reporting.
While the press should be critical of the presidential administration when necessary, the modern media has made it a hobby — one that Conway won’t watch in silence.
