Should TV networks stop booking Kellyanne Conway?

In 2017, Kellyanne Conway made up terror attacks, coined the term "alternative facts," and blamed former President Barack Obama for the Las Vegas shooting. Conway's critics say TV networks should stop booking her for on-air appearances because she peddles falsehoods and only leaves viewers more confused. But Conway's defenders say she's simply doing her job and doing it well. She's selling Trump's agenda to America and communicating the message he wants to get out. What do you think? 📺

After Kellyanne Conway coined the phrase "alternative facts" while defending Sean Spicer's lie about President Trump's inauguration crowd size, it was all downhill from there.

“Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts.” — Kellyanne Conway, interview on NBC “Meet the Press,” Jan. 22.

When Conway blamed the Las Vegas shooting on former president Barack Obama, many felt this was the last straw. 

"It was President Obama's ATF, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, in 2010 that decided not to regulate this device...That should be part of the conversation and part of the facts that you put before your viewers."

After claiming "no Senate seat" is "worth more than a child" regarding Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Conway changed her position for the sake of the GOP tax bill.

“So vote Roy Moore?” asked “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade after Conway bashed Doug Jones, Moore’s Democratic opponent in the race.
“I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway responded.

Once again, many urged networks to stop booking Conway.

And lest we forget the "Bowling Green Massacre" that never was.

Conway made a reference to two Iraqi refugees whom she described as the masterminds behind “the Bowling Green massacre.”
“Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered,” Conway said.
The Bowling Green massacre didn’t get covered because it didn’t happen. There has never been a terrorist attack in Bowling Green, Ky., carried out by Iraqi refugees or anyone else.

But defenders of Conway say she is criticized so fiercely because she is good at her job.

Jonah Goldberg argues in the National Review that Conway is treated unfairly by the mainstream media, and she is not the first communications official to lie on behalf of a politician.

Here’s a news flash for the news industry: Birds are gonna fly, fish are gonna swim, and politicians are gonna lie. The assumption that Conway is uniquely dishonest strikes me as not only preposterous but irrelevant. If she’s that dishonest, a good interviewer will make that clear to the viewer. Personally, I think Jake Tapper is more than capable of holding anyone’s feet to the fire.

And Conway has repeatedly defended herself and her duty to serve President Trump and get his message out into the world.
