Accuracy in Media

Over a week after Donald Trump’s inauguration as President of the United States, the liberal media continues to stay silent on the glass ceiling that his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, broke when he won the White House on Election Day. Kellyanne Conway is the first successful female presidential campaign manager, yet the liberal media paid little-to-no attention to this achievement.

The major liberal media outlets have not put out an article on Kellyanne Conway breaking the much-lauded ‘glass ceiling’ by the Left. Instead, the New York Times ran an op-ed that talked about the “dark magic of Kellyanne Conway” in the new White House.

To contrast, we at AIM have used the phrase ‘glass ceiling’ in referring to Kellyanne Conway and Trump’s White House victory.

Also, NBC News could only point out that she became Trump’s counselor in the White House, with one mention of the phrase ‘glass ceiling’ and it was in reference to the Trump campaign’s statement about Conway’s success.

MSNBC only ran a piece that quoted the Trump campaign team’s comment that Conway broke the ‘glass ceiling.’ In the MSNBC piece, the writer said that the ‘glass ceiling’ would be broken only if a woman won the presidency (ala Hillary Clinton) and blamed the Supreme Court for not breaking the presidential campaign manager ‘glass ceiling’ during the Gore-Bush election:

To be sure, Conway did something that hadn’t been done before. In 2000, Al Gore made Donna Brazile the first woman to manage a major-party nominee’s campaign, but the Supreme Court intervened before Gore could win that race, making Conway the first woman to manage a winning presidential ticket. Even though she only held the post for three months, it was nevertheless an impressive feat.

But to do more meaningful damage to “the glass ceiling” that has stood in so many women’s way, Americans would have had to … I don’t know … perhaps elect the first woman president? If memory serves, voters were given a choice in the 2016 election, and the woman was the more qualified, more experienced, more prepared, more capable, and more knowledgeable candidate.
