Today was the day that Jake Tapper decided to completely flush any remaining credibility he had straight down the toilet, when he got busted in a huge lie.

He’s been fond of saying that he wouldn’t book on his show the people he claims spread the “Big Lie” about the election since Jan. 6. Politico claimed that included Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY). They fail to say what it is, specifically, she supposedly lied about.

But as we reported earlier, then Elise Stefanik brought the receipts and dropped them all over Jake Tapper, showing he was lying and his show had invited her to be on as recently as last month, likely in regard to the ousting of Rep. Liz Cheney. She even mocked him over CNN’s falling ratings.

As we noted, Tapper responded by trying to throw his staff under the bus, despite his senior planning producer sending at least one of the emails.

I can’t account for every email from my excellent bookers whose job it is to present me with as many options as possible. I have just refused to allow any of the Liars, such as Rep Stefanik, on air. Kind of stunning to see her proudly identify as a conspiracy theorist. https://t.co/Whn3KiwEFQ

Of course, his senior planning producer was practically begging Stefanik to come on so this doesn’t pass the smell test. Plus the reason Stefanik responded was because Politico specifically named her in the piece as an example of someone he wouldn’t book.

Tapper was completely cooked by Stefanik.

But let’s look at how Chris Wallace busted Jake Tapper’s greater point, his empty posturing about not booking people in the original Politico article.

“I don’t think moral posturing goes well with news gathering,” Wallace told us in a statement, adding: “There are plenty of people I would like to have on Fox News Sunday that voted to challenge the election — House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy for one. And I don’t have any rule about what the first question has to be. I have asked plenty
