CNN is known for its fake news, but some of the hosts at least try to appear unbiased. The Lead’s Jake Tapper used to at least claim to be fact-based and unbiased, but now he is taking a new stance. Tapper is thinking about banning the GOP from his show, as he feels all they do is spread ignorance and he doesn’t want to give them a platform to do so.
“Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” morning program, Mr. Tapper pondered the purpose of him giving Republicans a platform to push lies about matters including the results of the 2020 presidential race.
“The lie about the election on its own is anti-democracy, and it is sowing seeds of ignorance in the populace, and obviously it has the potential to incite violence,” Mr. Tapper said.
“But beyond that is, if you’re willing to lie about that, what are you not willing to lie about?” he asked.
Tapper continued on with his tangent about how he felt the GOP lies.
“We need those debates happening. But we can’t have those debates if one side of the argument is not willing to stick to standards and facts — for a whole host of reasons,” Mr. Tapper said.
“One of them is, how am I supposed to believe anything they say?” Mr. Tapper continued. “If they’re willing to lie about Joe Biden wanting to steal your hamburgers and QAnon and the big lie about the election, what are they not willing to lie about? Why should I put any of them on TV?”
It seems like Tapper is just drinking more deeply from the Liberal Koolaid. There were definitely some oddities when it comes to this past presidential election. Numerous politicians and conservatives feel the same way about it. But instead of diving into the matter, it appears Tapper is just going to follow the Liberal stance that anyone who believes there was fraud, is a kook. But even to this day, it blows my mind that Liberals would vote for a man clearly struggling with some form of dementia.
