Kellyanne Conway: Media Out to 'Get' Trump, Not the Story

The media worked consistently "not to get the story but to get the president" during the Trump administration, and now it is working to cover for Democrats, according to former White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.
"I really thought that the media would want to get the story and not just get the president," Conway told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on 77 WABC Radio AM-N.Y.
Now, the media has a chance to get after President Joe Biden for chaos, but wants no part of that, Conway told host John Catsimatidis.
"All we see is chaos and crisis — not chaos and crisis in a tweet or an Oval Office spontaneous briefing — chaos and crisis at the gas pump, in the grocery store, in Ukraine, at the southern border, in our communities — yes, our urban areas but also our suburbs – rising crime, rising costs; and the media don't want to cover that," she told Catsimatidis.
"They want everything to be hidden and shrouded and not surface and be transparent to the people ahead of these midterms."
Conway's latest book "Here's the Deal: A Memoir" details the "mechanics" of Trump, including the inner workings of the White House that does not get the proper coverage, she said.
Conway marveled at the powerful women advising Trump, including Ivanka Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Brooke Rollins and Mercedes Schlapp, noting they were mothers raising a total of 19 children and being trusted presidential advisers like never before.
"You go show me a place in corporate or America or nonprofit America where that's true, where working mom's like that with that many kids, those ages, feel like they are supported, they are respected, they are listened too, they are valued and involved," Conway said.
