Jake Tapper Comes Unhinged – Launches Vile Attack On Fox

Jake Tapper Comes Unhinged – Launches Vile Attack On Fox

There was a time when I liked Jake Tapper. Not so much now. He’s become far too partisan and not enough of a real journalist for me these days. Maybe he’s just bought into the whole right-hating mantra at CNN. He has defended Robert Mueller’s biased investigation non-stop over the last few days. Then he turned his attacks to Fox News over what he terms “extreme rhetoric.” That’s pretty hypocritical considering his own “extreme rhetoric” over the years. I used to think he was fair and balanced and just did the news. That was until Trump was elected and then he slid off into hackdom just as so many other media types have.

Now, when you listen to Tapper, his words are meant to engender hatred and distrust against President Trump. There has been heated rhetoric on both sides, that’s true. But Tapper seems to confuse actual descriptive terms concerning illegal activities with a form of extremism. That’s disingenuous. He comes off painting a picture of Trump being so dangerous, that it is patriotic to resist, obstruct or just plain take him out. He has described Trump, the man with his finger on the nuclear button, as “unmoored,” disturbingly “unhinged” and worst of all, outright “un-American.” None of that is true in the least. And Trump is very and uniquely American.

For example, this is Tapper just three days ago, “So by ‘people who are very angry,’ the President is referring to those who are true believers in him and/or those who have a career interest in such decidedly pro-Trump biases, they think nothing of this incredibly extremist rhetoric. Impugning the credibility of Bob Mueller and Justice Department officials and the entire FBI? A hearty congratulations to all the graduates out there at the FBI academy at Quantico. Good look out there.”

If you will remember, Jake Tapper was one of the first to report and push the now discredited Russian dossier on Trump. It was not verified or vetted and yet, but Tapper presented it as fact. That’s a document that was fabricated and paid for by both the Hillary Clinton campaign and the very same FBI Tapper is so desperate to protect. When you deliberately denigrate a sitting President with unverified accusations as a major media personality, you are playing God. You push leftists and unstable people into doing terrible and violent things. It’s called incitement.

CNN is dead last in the network ratings. They have chosen to go with Trump-hatred and alienate most of the country who voted for Trump. As John Nolte at Breitbart said, “Let us also not forget that “assassination dogwhistles” are what CNN has built its last-place network on in the age of Trump; a network that broadcast what looked like a sniper snope pointed directly at the Oval Office, a network whose parent company sponsored Trump-assassination porn, a network that regularly compares Trump to Hitler.” Indeed.

Tapper vilifies the police and sides with Black Lives Matter. He excoriates Sean Hannity and Jess Waters as extremists for Trump. Back in 2014, this is what Tapper had to say about Ferguson: “What is going on in Ferguson, Missouri, in downtown America. These are armed police with semi-automatic rifles, with batons, with shields, many of them dressed for combat. Now why they’re doing this, I don’t know. Because there is no threat going on here, none, that merits this. There is none. Absolutely, there have been looters. Absolutely over the last nine days there’s been violence, but there is nothing going on right now that merits this scene out of Bagram. Nothing. So if people wonder why the people of Ferguson Missouri are so upset, this is part of the reason. What is this? This doesn’t make any sense.”

There was a time not so long ago that Tapper was seen as a professional by both sides… he was a respected journalist. That’s no longer the case and his image has suffered for it drastically. Despite massive conflicts of interests in the Mueller investigation that CNN is aggressively downplaying and covering for, Tapper’s dishonesty in defense of this obvious wrongdoing is no longer a surprise. It’s expected and shameful. This is CNN.
