Fox News reports:
Kellyanne Conway admits she made a mistake in talking about a Kentucky massacre that never took place. But that’s not all she has to say about it. In an interview airing Sunday on “Media Buzz,” President Trump’s counselor called some of her critics “haters” and said she corrected her error as soon as she learned about it. The misstatement has drawn substantial media attention, given Conway’s high profile.
“They’re masterminds, I had said that before,” Conway told me. “I should have said plot or I should have just called them terrorists. … I clarified immediately. I should have said terrorists and not massacre.” Still, she said, “I’m sure it will live on for a week. I misspoke one word. The corrections in the newspapers that are attacking me are three paragraphs long every day.”
When I asked whether the White House should be equally forgiving of mistakes by journalists, she said: “That is not what the president means when he says fake news on his Twitter. He is talking about things that are invented and just inaccurate.”
