Jake Tapper just gave "props" to Kevin McCarthy
for answering questions from reporters. He had that sparkle in his eye that he reserves for repugs who do the bare minimum to appear normal. He wants them to succeed so badly. Of course as he continued to interview someone who knows something about economics from Moody's, Kevin's little moment didn't appear so laudable anymore. Turns out it's Kevin who started this whole thing. But obviously, CNN and most other newsreaders are just dying to give him credit for ending it.
But not before I heard JT announce his next guest, Nancy Mace. You know, the one who CNN (and sometimes MSNBC) just love to push as "moderate." I wonder if Jake will ask her why she accused Joe Biden of being part of a prostitution ring. Doesn't sound too moderate to me.
Interestingly, I heard him interviewed on Canadian radio (CBC) once and he sounded like a totally different person (he had just written a novel). He apparently has a bunch of relatives in Winnipeg - that surprised me - who he likes to visit. He sounded, well, Canadian. He seemed way nicer. Maybe he was playing to the Canadian audience, which means he had to be less confrontational. CBC is a good source for news because the broadcasters just report what people say, they don't they and correct it.

He likes to get his jabs in, but I don't believe he's a Trumper
withdrawal. The virulent hyperbole and disdain directed toward President Biden was beyond any legitimate reporting of the news, and was when I stopped watching CNN
No doubt with their new CEO it cant be getting better over there
coverage. He was practically foaming at the mouth. And that's when Biden's numbers started to go down. I don't blame Tapper completely, but I think he influenced the media's narrative for the worse.
I guess the reich-winged owner thought he'd get that Faux Noose viewership to roll on over to TNN *Trump News Network,* but as of now that's not happening.
At the end of the day, you have to look at yourself in the mirror.
