Trump team doubles down on media criticism – The Hill

“Chuck, if we’re going to keep referring to our press secretary in those types of terms, I think we’re going to have to rethink our relationship here,” Conway said.

In another interview on NBC’s “Sunday Today,” Conway said the coverage of the president has had a negative effect on the country’s democracy.

“He has just absorbed an unprecedented — qualitatively and quantitatively — unprecedented deluge of negative criticism and coverage that’s frankly unfair and a little bit dangerous to our democracy,” Conway said.

“You know, the question for everyone who covers him and who thinks about him is: What is the line between thoughtful criticism and skepticism and, you know, flat out denial and delegitimization of what just happened?”

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus delivered a similar message.

Priebus blasted the media, getting into a heated conversation on “Fox News Sunday,” where he accused members of press of trying to delegitimize Trump’s presidency.
