I saw this a while ago on Drudge. So glad you posted it; I am not great at posting but am REALLY curious what happened in all of this. Why do I suspect O and His Thugs demanding Tapper’s firing?

He would get more respect at Fox. CNN is just as much of a cesspool of Lib kiss asses, as ABC is. Fox can trade Juan Williams for him. At least Hannity will have that thorn out of his butt.

Maybe he's replacing Piers Morgan.

Now, that would be a hoot.

That is exactly what happened. Nobody addresses the King that way!

That would be awesome. I hate Piers. Dumbass Red Coat needs to pack up and move back to London and live in a Muslim dominated town. We’ll see how that calms his nerves..

There’s one thing you can say about Tapper’s move.

He’s still alive.

For now.

Jake Tapper was the only person at ABC News with any shred of integrity.

And he's just about the only lib I can think of with even that much.

Susan Rices husband is a news producer for ABC Fake But Accurate News. Tapper must have disrespected the dictator.

CNN does something right. Mr. Tapper is perhaps the best in his line of work.

I think he’ll be fine. CNN’s ratings can only go up by having him aboard.

I think ABC had it with him, not using the ‘script’ that the MSM libtard media at the White Hut had to follow...and he was not lock step with them.

Tapper is a lib, no question but he is A journalist unlike the rest of liberal scumbag obama ass-kissing cohorts.

CNN is finally reading the tea leaves. Either they neutralize, or they're done.

From the article....

“Jake is leaving ABC News for an opportunity at CNN. You’ll hear more about his new anchor role from his new network.”

Although I've had issues with Jake Tapper, after all like virtually all the WH press corps, he was in the tank for Obama. However, in recent month an element of skepticism has crept into his reporting. This in part brought on by the fact Obama rarely held press conferences. So what's the point of being head guy for ABC at the WH ... especially when Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts get one on one's with O more frequently than he shows up at a WH press conferences. Anyway, I agree Jake Tapper has integrity ... he's a pro.

ABC has a history of replacing White House correspondents when a favored POTUS is in there. Back in the early 90s, they fired Brit Hume after BillyJeff complained about Brit's questions.

Why would a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party USA want somebody who occasionally has the guts to ask Ubama and the rats tough questions?

Ahhh... Maybe they brought him over and paid him big bucks so they could control him...

Jake Tapper was a guest on Glenn Beck’s radio show a few weeks ago.

ABC must have had a hissy fit when that happened.

Think Ian was sneaking around on Susan “it was the film” Rice? The kind of guy that likes those women who can handle a gun with a little danger involved.

ABC is the same as TASS news agency in Soviet Union in the 60’s. It’s interesting that what you were told as a child to be evil, is now the norm in America. These low-life’s in the media have sold their soul, just to have access to the most corrupt non- transparent government in the history of America.

Tapper’s about as decent as ABC would accept.

Surprised CNN would accept someone as decent as him.

I’d love to see Morgan axed. He’s a royal British idiot.

Good news, Soledad O’Brian is losing her show under new management.

CNN has turned radical and is competing with MSNBC.
