Each week brings a new reminder of the mega mistake ABC News is about to make bringing in Christiane Amanpour as the host of This Week.
Jake Tapper should have been the first choice and is demonstrarting weekly that he is the ideal choice. He keeps the show moving and is equally tough on representatives of both sides of the political spectrum.
From a business standpoint, this past Sundays Tapper-hosted This Week was up 6% over a year ago in the 25-54 demographic all these shows chase.
Tappers edition also was up a percentage point in overall audience from a week ago. One point isnt much but it indicates the show is in a positive growth pattern.

Christiane "unbearably pretentious accent" Amanpour is going to be a disaster - one whole hour of American-hating garbage.
Amananpour (sp?) is a bad choice if they’re trying to get a broad audience. She arrogant and has no understanding of why anyone would not slurp up the far left kool-aid. Tapper is a better choice.
Tapper is a lib, but the difference is that he questions Zero and doesn’t drink the same Hopeychangey kool aid that the rest of the MSM Obama bootlickers love so much.
Amandpour? Dear God, this b*tch is insufferable to watch..
Tapper would be much more fitting in the tradition of David Brinkley.... a liberal... but fair minded and even handed.
What a horrifying choice by ABC. They must have wanted someone further to the left of Tapper, and a Muzzie lover to boot. I can’t stand Amanpour. Well, there goes that show. With Tapper I could at least watch it occasionally, with Amanpour, it is now impossible.
She is AWFUL!!! Tapper is fairly decent!! The ratings will PLUNGE!! GOOD!!
