What is the point of Jake Tapper?

He just sits there while Kudlow calls Trudeau a back stabber and a betrayer. Our relationships with our allies are at the lowest point in most of our lifetimes because of Trump, and Tapper just sits there while a Trump spokesman spews out propaganda. Passive media figures like Tapper are the reason we got Trump in the first place. What is the point of Jake Tapper?

1. Doodley, with very few exceptions,they are all just entertainers.

They are paid to bring in paid advertising.

Or, one might say they are script reading media pimps.
Bring in the suckers.

2. Precisely

it's pretty much all infotainment with the occasional brush up against journalism, but that is getting more and more infrequent.

Best advice is to turn off CNN, MSNBC and of the remaining Cable Noise.

17. Who, Kudlow? He is a liar.

"fake news" doesn't exist. it is a made up meme.
It should be called LIES!!


Just like some sicko says, "I mis-spoke myself." Or, even just, " I mis-spoke," or "Untruths," or "false statement," or falsehood," or..... you name it...


republicans just lie by nature.
By NOT getting rid of trump they lie, every hour of every day. Their entire life is a lie. They really have no conscious existence. They do NOT exist. An any fulfills its duty as an ant better than republicans fulfill their duty as a human being.

3. Because he is satisfying the guy who controls his contract.

Simple as that. That fella thinks he's doing a swell job, and keeps signing him back up.

6. You just gave us the most honest answer to

 

what the real truth is. All one has to know is,CNN Boss Zucker as well as MSNBC/NBC Boss,Lackey were the Producer-Director Promoters of the Apprentice.

Tapper has to protect his 25 million paycheck.

4. If Tapper called Kudlow an ignorant liar to his face, trump supporters would still support trump.

People who can't view this stuff and discern -- or care about -- the truth, aren't going to be persuaded by a talking head.

5. Why not ask Kudlow

if we should build a wall along the Canadian border. Then ask if it includes the border between Alaska and the Yukon.

9. To suck up to the GOP power structure, what else?

 

They only attack liberal democrats of course.

10. Most only seek fame and fortune.

Oh, sure, they make a lot of noise about how integrity and what not but in the end, it's all about money and being famous. I marvel at it really. So few actually in it for the right reasons.

Two who I think are the gold standard: Rachael Maddow and Christiane Amanpour. If only more could be like them!

13. Tapper used to have integrity

He has spoken truth to power in the past. Watching him slide down the trump rabbit hole like this is really disappointing.

To the "Gold Standard" list I would add Joy Reid, Lawrence O'Donnell, Nicole Wallace and Ari Melber. Chris Hayes is getting there, too. IMHO

16. Good additions.

These media folks are all on Twitter. I've gotten a pretty good view of them from there, rather revealing.

(Re: Melber, I've got a crush on that one. )

14. What's the point of watching corporate cable news?

You are just watching programming that fills in the gaps between advertisements and keeps the sponsors happy.
