Tom Elliott Presents a Retrospective of CNN Debate Moderator Jake Tapper

Stephen Miller (aka @redsteeze) often points out — and he's right — that Donald Trump agreed to the Biden campaign's conditions for debates, which included that they are on networks friendly to President Joe Biden like CNN, ABC, and Telemundo and that Trump's microphone be cut off when Biden is speaking. We can complain about how Trump's debate on CNN will be three against one, but Trump agreed to debate anytime, anywhere.

As we've been reporting Monday, CNN's Kasie Hunt cut off Trump spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt when Leavitt brought up CNN moderator Jake Tapper's anti-Trump statements. She justified it by posting that when you come on her show, you respect her colleagues … period. (Does that include Jeffrey Toobin?)

Leavitt had said that Tapper had compared Trump to Hitler, and as we reported, Clay Travis brought the receipts:

That's the same Dana Bash who recently claimed she'd never talked to a Democrat who supported abortion up until delivery. Meanwhile, all of the Dems, including Biden, are using the Dobbs anniversary to campaign on restoring Roe v. Wade.

This editor is almost certain that Tapper's first question to Trump will be if he believes Biden won the 2020 election fair and square. Tapper has no patience for election deniers (except for regular guest Stacey Abrams).

Grabien Media's Tom Elliott put together a retrospective of Tapper letting his bias slip.

Beto O'Rourke always makes us laugh.

January 6 "threatened to end the American experiment."

Tapper continued to report that Jacob Blake was unarmed (he had a knife) even after the Washington Post made its retraction.

The House Oversight Republicans have uncovered plenty of evidence, it's just that no one will cover it.

GoFundMe canceled a fundraiser for the truckers, banks froze their accounts, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked a war powers emergency act.

This editor is old enough to remember reading Tapper at Salon over AOL dial-up. And don't forget that ABC News made Tapper its chief White House correspondent the day after the 2008 presidential election.

That "town hall" was shameful but launched the activist career of David Hogg and lionized former Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

Tapper also recently hosted several writers for The Atlantic who contributed to their special issue comprising 24 essays about the dangers of a second Trump term.

The Trump campaign's one request was that candidates be drug tested before the debate, but that's not going to happen.

The CNN debate date and moderators certainly came together awfully quickly the day that Biden left his video message challenging Trump to debate. "Well, make my day, pal," Biden posted on March 15, and that same night CNN announced it was hosting the first debate with moderators Tapper and Bash on June 27. It's almost as though Team Biden has given them a heads-up.
