We’ve long been painfully aware of the mainstream media’s extreme bias in favor of liberals. They held hands with Barack Obama all the way to the White House and are now trying to do the same with presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton even has her own cable network devoted to her — the Clinton News Network, also known as CNN.
So it really catches your attention when a member of the mainstream media — from CNN, no less — calls out the bias among their own. CNN’s Jake Tapper did that just with two perfectly chosen words, when he accused the media of being “ridiculously sycophantic” in their treatment of Hillary Clinton.
CNN’s Jake Tapper said today it’s easier to make a case for the media being tough on Donald Trump if that same standard is applied to Hillary Clinton.
Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany pointed to Clinton’s brief round of questions that included such hardballs like “Secretary Clinton, is it setting in that you might be making some serious history here tomorrow?” and “People just come up to you and they get tears in their eyes. Do you feel the weight of what this means for people?”
Tapper called those questions “ridiculously sycophantic” and said the media’s case would be stronger if the questions addressed to Clinton were as tough as the ones addressed to Trump.
Tapper is absolutely right and deserves our applause for calling out the obvious — that so few have dared acknowledge. Tapper also recently fact-checked some of Hillary Clinton’s claims surrounding her email server, for which we also cheered him.
Keep up the good work, Jake. It’s refreshing to see glimmers of integrity in a sea of sycophants.
