    01/17/2021 10:55:06 AM PST · by rktman · 35 replies ^ | 1/17/2021 | Scott Morefield
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper took a veiled shot at Fox News during a Sunday morning discussion about media polarization with former national security advisor H.R. McMaster. McMaster and Tapper were discussing President Donald Trump’s impeachment for inciting the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. After McMaster expressed his belief that the president was largely responsible and shouldn’t consider running again in 2024, he went on to lament the media’s role in the current political divide.

    Rep. Brian Mast (R., Fla.), a U.S. Army veteran who lost both his legs serving in Afghanistan, slammed CNN host Jake Tapper on Wednesday for questioning his "commitment" to fighting for democracy in the United States. "I lost two legs for Jake Tapper’s right to say whatever the hell he wants," Mast told the Free Beacon in response to Tapper's Wednesday remark. "But that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking constitutional questions about the election." Tapper took aim at Mast after the Republican congressman announced he would be voting against impeaching President...

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper said Wednesday on his network’s coverage of the second impeachment of President Donald Trump that Republicans who “are in a state of denial about the fact that he incited this riot” are causing a need for the Republican Party to have a politically exorcism. Tapper said, “It is the most bipartisan impeachment in American history, far exceeding the number of people in the opposing party who voted to impeach Clinton or Johnson. So I do think it is significant. On the other hand, it is still a vast minority of the House Republican Caucus, most of...

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper said Sunday on “Reliable Sources” that he will not book White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on his shows because she tells lies the way most people breathe. Tapper said, “There are some people that are just so mendacious, I just wouldn’t put them on air. Kayleigh McEnany, I never booked her. Jason Miller from the Trump campaign, I would never book him. I mean, these are people who just — they just tell lies the way that, you know, most people breathe. There was no value in that.”

    CNN’s anchor Jake Tapper said Monday that President Donald Trump’s “lies” could lead to “stochastic terrorism,” which is when a leader publicly demonizes a person or group, resulting in violent acts. The panel was discussing comments in a radio interview by State Rep. Gary Eisen (R) suggesting that he and other protesters plan to disrupt the Electoral College vote at the Lansing state capitol and White House advisor Stephen Miller saying earlier on Fox News that the battleground states the administration is disputing will have “alternate” electors cast in Congress.

And at this particular Earth that is in reality, it was very normal, very sedate. And it was welcoming news. It was good to watch. It was good to actually get content. We heard no fake news. We heard no conspiracy theories. We heard no personal grievances. We heard a President-Elect and a vice president who want to work with the other side.” “No fake news:” That’s...

    As health experts and states issue warnings about Thanksgiving that include limiting the number of people who can gather, eating outdoors, and in some cases quarantining for two weeks prior, CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dr. Anthony Fauci are already looking ahead to Christmas as coronavirus case numbers continue to rise. Noting that Fauci thinks Americans should cancel Turkey Day plans with people outside of one’s family, Tapper wondered when people can start to “safely gather for family events like this.”

    CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday during his show “The Lead” accused President Donald Trump of tweeting “deranged” conspiracy theories while ignoring surging coronavirus cases across the country. Tapper said, “It’s spreading — everything’s going in the wrong direction…And yet, President Trump — nowhere to be found. He has made no public comments on Covid since he lost the election. Even though his Covid task force met on Monday, they’ve not briefed the public in weeks. How bad of a position will we be in by the time President-elect Biden takes over in January, on January 20?”

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper said President Donald Trump’s attacks at Thursday night’s presidential debate about former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings were “off in Breitbart land.” Tapper said, “The other thing is people on his team, and you were saying this earlier, Dana, people on his team wanted him to talk about the economy tonight. They wanted him to talk about how he’s going to be able to bring the economy back to normal after he deals with COVID, even though he’s not really dealing with COVID. That’s a separate issue. You know, this is...

    CNN’s Jake Tapper abruptly ended an interview with White House trade adviser Peter Navarro following a tense exchange about President Trump’s decision to initially downplay the threat of the coronavirus. Tapper asked Navarro to discuss a Feb. 7 recording with journalist Bob Woodward in which Trump said the virus is five times deadlier than the flu. In the weeks following, Trump continued to hold large rallies despite knowing the virus was airborne and deadly. On Feb. 26, he told reporters that the flu was more dangerous than the coronavirus. “He was misleading the public. Why?” Tapper asked Navarro on Sunday....

    TAPPER: .....look, every political convention is propaganda, but I don't know that we've ever been fed a staple of propaganda like this. And what's so interesting about the last four days, Abby, is that they are asking the American people to not believe what they already think, according to polls. They are saying they had individual after individual say, I wish you could see what he's really like behind the scenes. I wish you could see it as if that would change the perceptions that the American people have, a majority disapproving of the president. So many Americans think he's...

    After calling on Attorney General William Barr to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, Democrats unloosed a barrage of insults and accusations and refused to allow the witness to answer questions. The farce followed a repetitive pattern as each Democrat on the Committee would pose a loaded question, Barr would start to answer but be interrupted after a few seconds by the questioner's shouts of "reclaiming my time." Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) defended the protocol, insisting that "a lying snake like Barr must never be given the chance to use a public forum to say things we don't want...

    **SNIP** “McConnell’s not going to do what you guys want him to do,” Tapper told Schiff. Schiff replied, “Well, McConnell, I think is, one success that this has already had is flushing out McConnell. Showing that he’s working in cahoots with the president, and he has made himself an active participant in the president’s cover-up. So, the American people needed to see that, and now they do.” Tapper interjected, “So, you’re never gonna get what you want, though. Isn’t that what you’re saying?” Schiff said that “wasn’t necessarily the case” and claimed that some Republican senators might reconsider their position...
