Jake Tapper pounded Sheriff Israel the whole time, and asked very tough follow-up questions. Pretty amazing.
Now, he's probably trying to figure out how to make things right.
Tapper to Sheriff - “So, living in Broward County, what’s the best tree to hide behind?”
Producer in production room - “Whoah!, Tapper got him now.”
This would be the place where I make an observation about blind squirrels.
Tapper did almost act like an actual journalist there for a while.
Meanwhile, this old Kenny Rogers song comes to mind:
What rhymes with “Coward” better than “Broward”?
I predict we will see him being tossed under the bus.
I read the transcript this morning, but the video is much worse. This guy did not serve himself well.
I know the deputies can’t talk about him now, but I wonder how much of the failures are due to the liberal policies of this clown?
Tapper did that to save his own ass. Why? Because Tapper allowed Isreal to berate the NRA at the townhall knowing their were police failures. Once the public found out, it made CNN look like idiots. Tapper gave Isreal an opportunity to take responsibility and he refused. Isreal will not be back because he complicates the gun grab argument.
And Tapper will continue to spout fake news.
Fake News defined: The omission of critical facts. Example below.
Fake News: Husband shoots wife.
Real News: Husband shoots wife as she held a knife to someones throat.
Both stories state the wife is shot. One portrays the husband as a murderer and the other portrays him as a hero. Very different.
The MSM do this constantly. And as a viewer you have no idea that facts have been omitted.
Nothing amazing about it. They generate more revenue/veiwership by ginning up as much trouble and strife between groups as they can.
And he says he’s not quitting!!
I worked in a graphics center at an investment bank in the city.
If you typed a few words wrong and didn’t catch it in your proof just ONCE, you were lucky to have a job.
But hey, misspelled words are more important than a whole bunch of people being murdered!!
Didn’t watch the video, but the headline made me wonder what had gotten into Fake Tapper. Your excellent analysis provides a plausible answer.
I would just add that there were probably far more leftists watching the “town hall” than there were watching the program in question. So, for CNN, Tapper’s appearing to get tough does not diminish their gun grab message.
Wondering why candidate Hillary is pictured with the idiot Sheriff?
It's b/c Broward is full of scum like them....who unfortunately vote.
LOL. Can we just refer to him as Fapper for short.
He may be “Matt Laured” in the future.
Well, I just learned a few days ago that that is a bad word, so I can’t join in, sorry.
I wonder how much of the failures are due to the liberal policies of this clown?
A captain is responsible for the operation of his ship and for setting expectations for those below him. In this case, his subordinates failed to do their jobs. This is a direct reflection on the sherrif’s failure to establish an atmosphere of accountability for the performance of his subordinates.
He is an arrogant, unaccountable, politically motivated bureaucrat who has no place in law enforcement.
Tapper couldn’t grill a cold wienie. Nothing he does or says would cause me to turn on whatever network it is he works for.
The MSM doesn’t report the news, it “shapes” it.
