Citing Wikileaks Podesta Emails, Trump Campaign Manager Accuses Media Of “Collusion” With Clinton Campaign

Kellyanne Conway:  “This Is Not Journalism. This Is At Its Best Cozy Relationships, Collaboration, All The Way To Collusion.”

From the October 23 edition of CNN's State of the Union:

KELLYANNE CONWAY: I will tell you having worked on the messaging in and around the actual Contract With America 20-some years ago, Jake, there was plenty of talk then about how we as Republicans could not get a fair shake from the media. And I think, look, I agree with you. I saw you quoted somewhere saying it was, quote, “horrifying” that someone at CNN had shared a question with Hillary Clinton in a competitive townhall against Bernie Sanders. I agree with you, Jake Tapper, it is horrifying. Also horrifying is having a print reporter telling John Podesta, I'm, quote, “a hack now,” so here have the privilege of editorial latitude on what I'm about to publish. Is there anything here that bothers you? This is not journalism. This is at its best cozy relationships, collaboration, all the way to collusion. So we feel very frustrated, it's not all members of the media. It's not even most members of the media. But look at the stories that are being written now. The path to 270 is narrow, the path to 270 is over. That's so unfair to the voters who are yet to go to the ballot box and exercise their constitutional right to tell us who should be president of the United States and commander-in-chief.
