Kellyanne Conway's critics say TV networks should stop booking her for on-air appearances because she peddles falsehoods and only leaves viewers more confused. She's made up terror attacks, coined the term "alternative facts" and blamed former President Barack Obama for the Las Vegas shooting. 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? 📺

When allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore suggested he engaged in sexual misconduct with underage girls, many in Washington were quick to distance themselves from the controversial candidate. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway told "Fox & Friends" that "no Senate seat" is "worth more than a child."
“Whatever the facts end up being, the premise, of course, the principle, the incontrovertible principle, is that there is no Senate seat worth more than a child,” the White House counselor told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday in response to allegations that Moore sexually molested teen girls when he was in his 30s.

But Conway has now switched course on Moore, arguing he is needed to get the GOP tax bill through the Senate.

“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.

Conway's comments were immediately met with outrage.

Many have urged networks to stop booking Conway all together.

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.
