Yesterday, Jake Tapper blew up any remaining credibility he had in an attack on Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY).
He told Politico that he hadn’t invited on anyone who spread the “Big Lie” about the election since Jan. 6. Politico claimed that included people like Stefanik, although no one said what “lie” she had actually told.
But then Stefanik dropped the facts all over Tapper, which showed that even his program’s senior producer had reached out to her, begging for interviews multiple times in the past few months since Jan. 6, including around the time that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was removed from her leadership position and Stefanik was elected by Republicans to replace her.
Tapper had a hissy, throwing his staffers under the bus and claiming he couldn’t account for every email from his bookers.

Chris Wallace had also busted the greater point about Tapped not wanting to have people on. Wallace called that “moral posturing” inconsistent with news gathering. What a great description of Jake Tapper and CNN in general.
It was also pretty bad that Tapper and CNN have been promoting not only the Democratic propaganda terms by calling questioning election integrity the “Big Lie,” but also
