White House counselor Kellyanne Conway called out media hypocrisy on “Fox & Friends” Friday, saying that there is a double standard in judging Trump’s mistakes versus mistakes in establishment media.
“We really only had four and a half hours of stories that they said Michael Cohen had his lines wiretapped, and that was walked back at about 5:30 on MSNBC,” Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade said. (RELATED: MSNBC Issues HUGE Correction To Michael Cohen ‘Wiretap’ Story)
“I want to add one more thing, people do make mistakes, but at the Trump White House our mistakes live forever, right?” Conway said.
“I think those, just like — that’s the problem here, isn’t it? The media protect each other, like ‘Oh, well they corrected it. They said they were sorry.’ Excuse me, even after Saturday night I told people those who are seeking mercy and instant absolution and forgiveness, ought to have demonstrated the capacity to have offered some over the last 16 months,” she added.
