Pot Calling the Kettle Black

2021 May 11
by bc3b

CNN’s Jake Tapper has gone full left in calling Republicans liars and threatening to bar them from his show.

The was a time when some conservatives said, “Jake Tapper may be a liberal, but he’s an honest one.” That hasn’t been said in at least 10 years, certainly not since Tapper joined CNN. Hanging around with people like Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter and Don Lemon would destroy what small sliver of honesty or decency Tapper may have once had.

Tapper’s attack is a joke for several reasons:

  1. He is a member of one of the country’s most dishonest industries. According to Gallup, a majority of Americans have not trusted the media since 2005, Recent Gallup findings show that nearly 2/3 of Americans distrust the media,
  2. Tapper is employed by CNN, a company many, if not most, Americans view as the most dishonest in the media. One of its producers was caught on camera by Project Veritas admitting much of what CNN broadcasts is propaganda, they have stacked panels of “experts” to provide the answers CNN wants, they were focused on removing Donald Trump in 2020 and the next major focus will be on climate change,

Democrats overwhelmingly trust the media (or, more likely, approve its message). Media trust among independents has dropped by 20% since 2004 and 10% of Republicans are morons.

CNN’s Jake Tapper went full throttle in condemning the Republican party Sunday, saying its leaders spread “made-up convoluted crap,” injecting “complete and utter nonsense” into mainstream politics.

On Sunday’s “State of the Union,” Tapper came loaded with examples of “downright falsehoods, lies, inventions” perpetrated by the GOP just in the last week. First on his list, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy “pushing the lie about Biden as Hamburgler,” a GOP invention that President Biden’s climate plan would limit Americans to one hamburger a month.

“I would like to imagine a House Republican leader who didn’t find it so easy to lie to the American people, but too many leaders of the GOP are just all in on pure nonsense,” Tapper said.

    Speaking of Plano, from the previous thread:

    ip727 –

    Why is it that cities almost always have black police chiefs?

    Most cities nationwide bend over backward to show their “diversity”. Virtue signaling at it’s worst. Plano has a black mayor & black police chief. It has become a millennial lib city.

    it’s kinda comforting to know that it isn’t just OUR “ruling class” that is tone deaf. This headline in the UK after Labour got its ass kicked in recent elections is priceless:

    The voters have let us down!’ – Fury as ex-Labour council chief blames public for defeat

    Labour turned its back on the people who voted them INTO power…and then can’t understand it when the public boots them out.

    Kinda like a surgeon coming out to tell the family how the surgery went on their loved-one: “Boy that guy sure let ME down when he died!

    The drop CNN is experiencing is profound. On Friday, not one program broke 900K total viewers. Prime averaged less than 800K overall.
    For comparison, the network averaged 2.74 million viewers in January, so we’re talking about more than two-thirds of the audience – gone.

    Is the gas situation being underreported?

    @kittypurrzog
    This is so bizarre. I’ve called 10 gas stations around Asheville and not a single one has gas. One person laughed at me when I asked. And yet nothing on current gas shortages on NPR and most other national news sites. How is this not the biggest story in the US right now???
    (Note: an online commenter at a blog said in her town some stations have no problem, others have run out)

    Another issue on which the pro-Dem media will avert eyes. Jeez.

    ‘This needs to stop now’: Texas farmer, 75, finds five abandoned migrant girls – including a baby – under the age of 7 crying and hungry on his land – and warns thousands will die this summer in sweltering heat while Biden ignores the border crisis

    “*Farmer Jimmy Hobbs, 75, says he found the five little girls on Sunday at 8.30am while doing a round of his land in Quemado, Texas
    *The girls were all hungry and crying; one was naked and crawling because she is too young to walk
    *Three were from Honduras – they are seven, three and two
    *Two are from Guatemala and are aged five-years-old, and 11-months-old
    *The farmer said he gave them food, water and shade until CBP arrived 3 hours later
    *He said the current border crisis is the worst he’s seen in the 75 years he has lived on the farm”

    Brit papers report it though.

    38,

    Problem with Styx’s ramt — Abbott had no jurisdiction.

    Watched the video. The intersection was county road next to an interstate, maybe. Several expressways in the north dallas areas are not part of the interstate system, AND there are several private expressways that only the cities have jurisdiction over.

    Now if that huge dude in the blue shirt starting throwing punches that initiated a riot Abbott could call in a Ranger to break it up. And the Plano cop, sheesh if huge dude landed one good the cop would not know what hit him. That and I kept looking for the traffic control moped with the coin safe in the back.

    The guy he ought to be roasting is the Plano mayor.

    40, good perspective dr.
    Easy to rant, harder to know the precise situation on the ground.
    I think a lot of people are geared up, thinking “what would I do if stopped on the street by masked thugs all in black?”

    Skills and the tools to do so are my favored approach. There is more barterability in the skill than just an asset. Though there is something to be said for having a couple of boxes of scotch stashed away whether you barter it or not! 🙂
