DATELINE: Another Strange Bedfellow
Foxy Tapper and Friends
If you wondered about the objectivity of CNN reporters and on-air personalities, you now have more evidence of “Fake News.”
Maybe Donald Trump is on to something when he dismisses the journalistic integrity of CNN’s stable of political assassins.
CNN’s host with the least, Jake Tapper, after taking a paid trip to the Minnesota-Philadelphia playoff game, as a gift from the Eagles organization, then gave an interview in which he accused the Patriots of being “cheaters.”
Pardon us for asking if this is cricket, let alone football.
With an expensive bribe in his pocket, Tapper took his pediatrician father with him to make even a wannabe Dr. Spock complicit in his crime.
If you wondered whether Jake Tapper was dropped on his head as a baby, you now have evidence.
Can it be the outburst by Tapper is motivated by the fact that Patriot owner Bob Kraft, Patriot coach Bill Belichick, and Patriots star Tom Brady, are all friends of Donald Trump?
You may now seriously question CNN’s integrity, as the pot calls the Patriot kettle, black.
Interviewed on his own network, Tapper showed his innate idiocy by proclaiming on national TV: “The Patriots are cheaters, Brooke. The Patriots cheat,” Tapper said. “This is just a fact as established by investigations. They’re a cheating team … The facts speak for themselves.”
As if it were not self-evident about this truth, Tapper shamelessly labeled himself a lifelong Eagles fan, and he criticized the strategies employed by the Patriots.
We might ask the same about the strategies used by CNN.
Is it time to fire Jake Tapper?
