    If Kellyann is banned from any networks then Sarah Huckabee Sanders has to be, too. No, no one should be banned. Report and expose every lie. It all needs to be documented.

    Censorship is never the answer.

    If only the students at Berkeley would understand that...

    I'm pretty sure the networks HAVE refused to put certain spokespeople on their air because they weren't credible. Kelly Ann Conway was one of those people. At the time, the administration had to find someone else or go without their viewpoint represented. Trump has tried lots of different people, including personal friends (like the publisher of Newsmax), to get his message out.

    Refusing a specific spokesperson isn't censorship. Refusing to put on air anyone to represent the administration's views might be. No individual has a right to air time on a national network. If they did, the airwaves would be full of garage bands and religious nuts getting their time.

    If a person is banned, that it censorship.

    The OP did not mention "government" censorship.
    it doesn't mention the government , or censorship, at all.

    Agree.

    But a "ban" IS censorship.

    If a network does not want KAC on then they don't have to invite her.

    Then she won't be on.

    DUH!

    Easy peasy.

    oh, I'm all for banning those WH news briefings. It's downright offensive the way Sanders is running them. It's turned into the propaganda arm of the administration. But, that's the fault of the mainstream media. They are the ones, all of the cable networks, that decided to air them in their entirety. I'll agree , though, that it should be documented. That's why we have a media in the first place. It just all makes me sick to my stomach the way it's being exploited by Trump.
    Thanks from BigBob and Babba

    "easy peasy"? You're not making any sense. Are you saying if they don't invite her it's not censorship?

    I'm amazed that he didn't boot her off the show right there. Probably because doing so only made Trump like Stephen Miller more, so it does no good.

    But it further does no good to host administration flaks who cast personal aspersions on specific journalists at the host network without evidence.
    I canít believe that I am going to defend her. She never implied in any way that tapper is a wife beater. She was using it to show how difficult it was to think porter beat his wives because he was so unlike that kind of personality at work. What she was saying is no one would believe it of him if it had was true..there was no Way that she was implicating him and that is just unfair.He didnít put her off the show because he knew what she was doing and that was perfectly fair. A couple of things she did say that surprise me and that was that she believed the women or she said she had no reason not to believe them. And what is also true is that he did his job extremely well. It would be like going to the best brain surgeon and then finding out that he beat up his wife. It doesnít take away from the fact that on the outside he was a despicable man but competent on the job . One thing that I found ridiculous was she said that he didnít get his security clearance because it takes so long. I kind of think the president of the United States has enough clout to get them to clear him as soon as possible.He had no right to be getting the highest briefings just like Jared Kushner
