This feed effectively began with me calling, on January 17th of 2017, for media outlets to stop booking Kellyanne Conway. My reasoning: she's a known liar, and any network aiming to do journalism can't justify knowingly exposing viewers to lies.

Now CNN is booking Lewandowski.

1/ Stein is correct that the moment Lewandowski—orgasmically for him, I'm sure—said on national TV, under oath, before Congress, that he has no obligation to tell the truth to media... it should've been the end of his appearances on major media—deeply harming his Senate campaign.

2/ There have to be consequences for actions, and Lewandowski a) has been caught lying to media repeatedly, and *then* b) admitted lying to media. Those two things, in conjunction, should have permanently ended his relationship with media (absent some massive, credible apologia).
