CNN reported Wednesday that Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, was “sidelined” from appearing on TV due to credibility issues, even though she’s scheduled to appear on Fox News Thursday morning.

The CNN report cited recent discrepancies between things Conway said on TV which were then contradicted by other White House officials, like when she said last week that national security adviser Mike Flynn had the “full confidence” of Trump, only to see Flynn ousted shortly thereafter.

CNN cited an anonymous White House source who said Conway had been blocked from doing more TV because she had been “off message.”

But Conway disputed the report telling CNN “I’ve been invited on shows every day, including two Sunday shows. I’m trying to focus on other pieces of my portfolio.”

Conway is also scheduled to appear Thursday morning on the “Fox and Friends” program, Fox News confirmed to the Washington Examiner.

Conway also said recently and before CNN’s report that she was already trying to appear less frequently on TV.

CNN has said itself that it is trying to book her less often and the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” have said they are no longer interested in booking her at all.

Both channels said their distancing from her is a matter of not finding her comments credible.
