Kellyanne Conway dismissed the self-serving apologies that were boasted as ‘well-intentioned,’ because they weren’t credible, or worthy of considering.
Why should Kellyanne Conway take this perfunctory apology seriously?
It manages to boast in some high ideals and then criticize Michelle Wolf for not embodying those ideals. The problem is that we have been watching and listening to the media during the election and after, and we recognize Wolf as perfectly representing the media as it actually exists.
White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) President Margaret Talev […] said in a statement late Sunday that she has heard from members of the association that Wolf’s performance did not reflect well on the WHCA’s efforts to celebrate journalism and the First Amendment.
“Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people,” Talev said.
“Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission.”

Kellyanne Conway was not impressed! The Daily Caller reports, “Kellyanne Conway: WHCA Apology ‘Late, Generic’”
WHCA President Margaret Talev said […] the dinner “was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people. Unfortunately, [Wolf’s] monologue was not in the spirit of that mission.”
Conway criticized Talev’s statement Monday saying “It was late, and it was generic,” […]
“The WHCA elevated an individual and the discourse that came with that at the same time this President is elevating Mike Pompeo to Secretary of State, and Korea is on the verge of ending decades of war,” she told TheDC. “So we win.”
Conway launched into blistering criticism of the press corps writ large saying the dinner “proved the point that so many Americans have when they look at the mainstream media, that too many people are not there to get the story but to get the President.”
