White House spokespeople will no longer appear on CNN because it doesn’t ‘promote’ Trump agenda
You may not be seeing Senior Trump Advisor Kellyanne Conway on CNN in the near future.
According to Politico, the Trump White House will no longer send spokespeople or surrogates onto CNN shows, complaining that the cable news network broadcasts “fake news.”
“We’re sending surrogates to places where we think it makes sense to promote our agenda,” a White House official told Politico, indicating they believe CNN has been unfair to them.
As it stands now, CNN already employs several Trump advocates including Kayleigh McEnany, Jeffrey Lord and former Sen. Rick Santorum.
It was not clear whether White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will be taking questions from CNN reporters at his daily briefs.
