Vice President Mike Pence will be interviewed on the Sunday morning political shows this weekend on ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox, but is skipping CNN.
From The Hill
Deputy adviser Sebastian Gorka is the only member of the Trump administration to have appeared on the network recently, in the wake of the president’s ongoing feud with the network.
Gorka was a guest of Jake Tapper’s on “The Lead” on Thursday. Tapper is also the host of CNN’s Sunday political program, “State of the Union.”
A CNN spokeswoman confirmed to The Hill that the White House had offered up Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway for Sunday, but said the network declined the offer.
CNN media critic Brian Stelter questioned whether TV networks should book Conway in a tweet promoting his column about her incorrect claim of a “Bowling Green Massacre” by Iraqi refugees. Conway has since acknowledged such a “massacre” never happened, saying she misspoke.
