Kellyanne Conway said some print reporters are improving at their coverage of President Donald Trump's administration.

"There are some print journalists who have taken the time to try to get to know this president and how he operates and who he is and some of the senior administration officials, and they're doing much better, in my view, of covering the White House," Conway said Wednesday during an interview at the Newseum museum in D.C., according to Politico.

It is too early to give the media a grade, she said, saying their coverage of Trump warrants an "incomplete."

She said Trump bears no ill will toward The New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.

"She's a very hardworking, honest journalist, who happens to be a very good person," Conway said in response to interviewer Michael Wolff saying Trump told him he dislikes Haberman.

The White House adviser remained critical of television reporters, saying they ask the same questions. 

"They judge [Trump] according to their predisposed beliefs about what motivates him, what his personality is, how he makes decisions, what's important to him thematically and issues-wise, and I just think a lot of the right questions aren't being asked," she said. "The comfort in sameness has an effect where people are afraid to go first."

The press serves a vital function, she said, noting she, unlike White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, does not consider the media the "opposition party."

"I think it's very important in a healthy democracy to have a free and a fair press," she said. "Part of that democracy, too, though, is to have a presidency, no matter who the occupant is, shown respect and shown an openness to really cover all the items that he has put forth."

Some reporters have a predetermined viewpoint about Trump and "want to prove they have been right all along" about the president, Conway said in the Newseum interview, according to Variety.
