Political commentator Samantha Bee attends TBS’ “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” FYC Event at the Writers Guild Theater on May 24, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.
The TBS television show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” has been denied press credentials for the Western Conservative Summit, June 8-9 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. The summit is the largest conservative gathering outside of Washington, D.C.
Last week the show’s host, Samantha Bee, referred to Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser, by a vulgar term. Bee apologized for the remark Thursday.
“In 2016, Samantha Bee’s production team came to the Western Conservative Summit. They did not provide fair coverage,” said Jeff Hunt, director of the Centennial Institute and chairman of the Western Conservative Summit. “Instead, they bullied and harassed our attendees. Conservatives are tired of being mistreated by the liberal media. Shows like ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’ are not intent on reporting but bullying and shaming conservatives.”
The Centennial Institute at Lakewood’s Colorado Christian University works to enhance public understanding of issues relating to faith, family and freedom.
