Quick question: is ABC's Jake Tapper Salon's Jake Tapper?
Could it be that an actual 'progressive' reporter was hired by ABC?

1. Used to be with Salon
He signed on with ABC earlier this year. His signing with ABC was a object of some articles in CONWEB Watch. Some Scaife.net outfit tried to trash him, but was unsucessful.

2. look again
Tapper is progressive? Maybe so, but he sure has done some slashing of people who are on his side of the fence.

And he sure got happy with the Bush campaign 2000.

4. Same guy. Modestly progressive, but with that liberal media guilt
which makes him think he can only be fair by trashing the left just as much as he does the right.
