Tapper is one of the more unbiased reporters at ABC.

Keep an eye on him at CNN. He's been doing some pretty great work at ABC.

Well I don’t even know who he is but I’m sure his mother loves him, and I hope he has a Merry Christmas.

Wasn’t CNN bought out by Dell comics?

We are to believe CNN won’t influence him? They will be signing the paychecks although I am sure he has an agent and a contract.

With the MSM, random acts of journalism get you traded—and then fired if you keep it up.

He has been spanked for upsetting the almighty.

This seems like a good move for CNN..Jake Tapper may be a real journalist.

...”With the MSM, random acts of journalism get you traded—and then fired if you keep it up.

All true..I think it is possible that Jake Tapper has seen up close what is happening in government..He might have “seen the lion and heard the owl” concerning the state of our nation..Those seeking truth change their opinions once new information makes previous opinions obsolete.
I am a person who used to be liberal, until the circumstances of my life brought me into contact with the actual liberals I was supporting..I saw them for who they were and I began to research history as hard as I could to independently decide who I wanted in charge of America’s future..What I feared has happened..Base human nature of wanting something for nothing has been exploited by liberals until it has ruined our country.

From the sewer of ABC to the cesspool of CNN. Not a good move but I guess better than that garbage dump MSNBC.

He questioned the dictator. Can’t do that when you work for husseins official propaganda network.

No conflict of interest in this deal, right?

“””Susan Rice married Canadian-born ABC News producer Ian Officer Cameron (born in Victoria, British Columbia) in 1992 while they both lived in Toronto, she as a management consultant for McKinsey, he a producer for the CBC. They met as students at Stanford. They reside in Washington, D.C. with their two children (a son and a daughter named Jake and Marris).

That is a great comment. Wonder if ABC was quietly pushing him out because he dared to question the One in that room full of obamabots. He is one of the more aggressive reporters in the room.

“Where have you been” regarding gun legislation was a little obnoxious the other day and easily gut under Obama’s skin. Shows how weak Obama is. Can't take a real question. Obama’s answer was pathetic.

I thought the part of Obama’s response to “Where have you been?” where he said “... I haven’t been on vacation...” was laughable and telling. He has been on vacation, golf, partying, and campaigning since he got to the White House, because that’s all this unqualified a$$ knows. He hasn’t put in 1 full 8-hour day of work since he was elected.

I agree. Tapper is one of the few who doesn’t seem to worship Odumbo. I wish him success.

Tapper was being critical of Obama because he didn’t think Obama was trying hard enough to confiscate everyone’s guns.

Tapper is no conservative. Sure he called out Obama, but only because he didn’t think Obama was exercising his dictatorial powers fast enough.

I was hoping Jake would to to Fox news they could use more conservatism. Fox could get rid of Whorealdo, Shep, Dana and Bechtel and last but not least BOR the biggest phoney.

"Tapper is one of the more unbiased reporters at ABC."

"More unbiased" is not "unbiased". I agree that occasionally he would notice the truth. Occasionally a blind squirrel will find an acorn, too. He doesn't survive the winter, though.
