There seems to exist a state of perpetual war between President Donald Trump and CNN, as the latter routinely attempts to destroy the former while the former constantly exposes and undermines the credibility of the latter.
Trump consistently refers to CNN as purveyors of “fake news,” and there have even been rumors that his administration has considered blacklisting the network as payback for the many lies and half-truths it has published against the president and his supporters.
In what strikingly resembled a tit-for-tat move, a rumor was started over the weekend that top White House counselor Kellyanne Conway had been banned from CNN, with the network laughably citing “serious questions about her credibility,” according to The New York Times.
The questions about her credibility arose following her quickly corrected misstatement several days earlier of a “massacre” in Bowling Green, Kentucky, by two Iraqi refugees in 2011. The plot those jihadists were engaged in could have ended up as a massacre had it not been foiled by law enforcement.
CNN also still seemed to be upset over Conway’s “alternative facts” statement in response to the provably untrue “facts” being put out by the media about the comparative sizes of inauguration crowds.
The narrative of CNN potentially banning Conway from appearing on its network spread rapidly through the media, according to U.S. Uncut, prompting Conway to take to Twitter to attempt to correct the record that she had been banned because of a lack of credibility.
Conway wrote, “False. I could do no live Sunday shows this week BC of family. Plus, I was invited onto CNN today & tomorrow. CNN Brass on those emails.”

But CNN replied to Conway’s tweet, claiming that she “was offered to SOTU (State of the Union) on Sunday by the White House. We passed. Those are the facts.”

However, the New York Post editorial board took issue with CNN’s excuse for keeping Conway off the air, citing the network’s own touch-and-go relationship with credibility and questionable accuracy in reporting the news of the day.
After presenting a couple of glaring examples of the network’s duplicity, the Post noted that there was something to the Bowling Green Iraqi refugees story, declaring it to be a “largely sound” defense of Trump’s executive order on immigration that temporarily halted the refugee program and immigration from seven terror-prone nations.
Once again CNN has lied about Trump and his administration, but this time they were immediately challenged for it and exposed.
