Lately Jake Tapper is Screwing the Pooch... Big Time.

Asks the tough questions of Trump's minions... and then lets them reply by spewing the same bullshit lies for the remainder of the interview.

Come on guy...We know that you represent our sentiments.. But at least try to follow up
their replies with a little passion/ anger.. Instead of shaking your head and thanking them for coming on the show..

Realize that its his style... but come on Jake.. We're heading to the stretch and we need you to be as tough as freaking nails.

1. Tapper's motto seems to be "there are fine people on both sides " sometimes

2. I already gave up on exactly that, the opportunities are a daily occurrence, so seems to me:

It's because they have agreed not to humiliate them on paper in exchange for them showing up?

Soft interviews..... all over the place..... too much a pattern to be ignored?

Who would be the villain now if it wasn't Death Count Donnie, yes that's right, it would be Evil Hellspawn Hillary!

Our media has a heavy hand in all of this malarkey!

People like Moscow Mitch are just the latest in the finest corrupt congress people $ can buy?
He's already grossly rich, which makes it more ridiculous that he is this big an asshole?

3. If only Tapper would go after the Trumps

with a tenth the viciousness he went after the Clintons.

5. There's an argument for presenting these people so that the

audience can hear what they are saying and make up their own minds. And so they will come back.

CNN's Fox-lite these days, overall working to warp the thinking of those not foolish enough to serve themselves directly up to Fox, but even so the argument for this approach as a way of getting information out is a good one.

8. And this rock-hard opinion is based on what? All this has

been intensively studied by people who write whole books on what research has identified and then followups on new research.

Of course the old "tell a lie often enough and people will believe it" is proven valid, but it doesn't follow that channeling everyone who want to hear those those lies away from truth to sites that purvey only lies is a good way to combat this technique.

NBC didn't do so good here, prompting this reminder of how it should be done:



NEVER start a refutation by repeating the lie. Start by stating the truth.

9. my view is our media is very weak sauce. the truth is losing.

they've been playing both sides do it and letting the criminals off the hook since the advent of hate radio and faux tv. no thanks ...not for us.

6. When I watch, it's clear trump's spokesfolks are lying.

I think most people get they are lying, blowing smoke, etc. Itís just a lot of folks donít care.

I donít think journalists have to call trumpsters liars, idiots, POSs, etc., to get those points across. Just put them on for people to see/hear, ask tough questions, etc.

10. Why are you surprised?

 

Tapper has been a right wing hack since his ABC days.
