Skip to comments.Jake Tapper: There sure seem to be a lot of sloppy errors in this Wolff book
Posted on 01/09/2018 11:25:42 AM PST by COUNTrecount
Yesterday the president was crowing that Tapper is a hateful, unfair CNN flunky whod been destroyed by Stephen Miller, today the GOPs war room YouTube account is circulating this clip of him puncturing the Wolff hype balloon.
Which is it? Can I trust this flunkys hatefully unfair analysis or cant I?
More importantly, has Tappers eleventh-hour attack on Wolff jeopardized his chances to take home a coveted Fakey Award on Wednesday night?
Im curious to see if jabbing at Wolff remains the province of more centrist news types or if other media start calling him out. Theyd all love to cheerlead the book as a matter of pure partisanship, Im sure, especially after seeing how much its gotten under Trumps skin. But the fact remains that there are sloppy errors in Fire and Fury, not all of which are mentioned by Tapper here, and more are bound to come to light on social media and on oppositional outlets like Fox as readers make their way through it. The more holes are poked in Wolffs narrative, the easier itll be to tar his entire media cheering squad with the label fake news. And why shouldnt they be, if theyre more interested in hashtag-resistance than in fact-checking him? You can see the Wolff backlash coming from a mile away, particularly with the author himself mouthing Orwellian defenses about how his book is true if it rings true, which, uh, no.

HE’S ADMITTED THAT!
This should be considered a work of fiction and nothing else.
Hey, it’s fake and fakey for effect, because a whole lot of it could maybe be true...
CNN the network that cried Wolff!..................
Wasn't that what Miller was trying to tell him the other day?
I think Miller said it was a garbage book by a garbage author.
Tapper realises he humiliated himself with Miller at the weekend and is now desperately attempting to save face.
He is finished
But isn’t this the same book that Tapper was using to badger Miller?
The Tap knows sloppy.
Wolf Blitzer ask, why does he get two “f’s”?
How is this any different than what the NYTimes and others do? They print widely inaccurate garbage with searing headlines, above the fold, and 3 days later after its been discussed wall-to-wall, the NYTimes prints a retraction on page A26 understanding full well that they have accomplished their intended mission. Same with this book.
“The Wolff Dossier”
He's about as partisan as they get in the media these days, but he always seemed to be a big step above the rest of the leftist media in his objectivity on a lot of stories he covered.
This “book”...will be a bottle rocket - quick, noisy, take-off, the a big “splat”, and it’s over.
You people who waste money buying it, can soon go back to the “Globe”, and “National Enquirer” the next time you’re at the supermarket.
We now return to our regularly scheduled Trump bashing, on CNN.
Yeah, no shit Jake!
Gee, it only took him a week or so to surmise what most already figured out in minutes...that’s mighty white of him..
This is how far left Allahpundit at Hotair has gone. Instead of making the article about the substance of the headline - the errors in the Wolf book, he speculates about what Trump will think about Tapper now.
Miller uses leftist speaking tactics. Media are used to dishing these speak over repetitive tactics but now are totally disarmed when they are on the receiving end. Stephen Miller does it so deftly and mannerly. He is awesome!
OK So I almost lost a big glug of afternoon tea all over my monitor and keyboard, due to your remark. (nice one)
