Donald Trump's team on Tuesday refuted a report that the president-elect's Monday media summit with network executives and cable news hosts was a "total disaster" and a "firing squad," the Washington Examiner reported.

The New York Post reported that media execs representing the networks, CNN, MSNBC and Fox among others were greeted with a hostile Trump who gave them all a "dressing down" over election coverage.

But Kellyanne Conway, Trump's election campaign manager and current quasi-spokeswoman said that "just wasn't" the case.

"There was a lot of congenial conversation outside ... of the room where we all were," Conway said, according to the Examiner. "Nobody left there in a huff, nobody called me and complained."

Trump reportedly told CNN head Jeff Zucker that he hated his network and called everyone at the cable news outlet a liar.

"The way it was described about Zucker specifically is just false," Conway said.
