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 didn’t 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 doesn’t 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 didn’t 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
    that's still a pretty messed up thing to say. In fact, no, I'm just going to have to completely disagree with you here. She was playing the same games with the truth she always does. It wasn't just some random allegation. It was investigated by the FBI and found to be credible enough that they held up his security clearance. Tapper is a news anchor. Yet, even if you applied the comparison the way Conway did, he'd be out of a job quicker than the WH moved to terminate Porter. Anyway, you don't say something like that to someones face. It's just flat out rude.

    Nope, I never said that.

    They can invite her or not invite her, that's their choice.

    They can invite the WH to send a spokesperson as long as it's not KAC.

    If the WH says it's KAC or no one, then it's up to the network to decide.

    To "ban" her is censorship...

    something tells me that's not the way it works. If they're about to do a story they might ask the WH for a statement. But, I'd think it would be up to the WH if they wanted to get people out as surrogates speaking for the WH. During that exchange the network might say that they didn't want a particular individual for what ever reason. Either way, what specifically are you saying is a ban, and therefore censorship, or isn't a ban, and therefore is not?

    The network can invite KAC, or choose not to.

    If they want someone else, they can invite someone else.

    If the WH says the only person that will appear is KAC, the network can accept her or not.

    If they "ban" her, or anyone else, that is censorship.

    I didn't think that interview was that awful, actually.
    She's been much worse.

    And No, I don't think she should be banned or censored, but I wouldn't lose any sleep if the media stopped inviting her on or interviewing her.
    Thanks from NightSwimmer

    The president of the network making an official policy that a person is not to be permitted to appear on his/her network.

    Lets say the boss of NBC put a "ban" on KAC.

    She could not be invited, or allowed to appear on any NBC, MSNBC, or CNBC show.

    That would be a "ban".

    A better plan would be to make a decision to not invite her on their network until such time as that policy changes.

    That way she's not "banned", just not invited to appear at this time.

    Then she won't be on.

    DUH!

    Easy peasy.
    How is what you've suggested differ from a "ban?" Isn't a policy not to do something a "ban" on that thing?
