Video: Conservative Reporters Question To CNN’s Jake Tapper Causes Him To Run Away
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a member of the mainstream media run like Jake Tapper did on a newly released video of him being asked a question by a conservative journalist. The conservative journalist was James O’Keefe who asked Tapper about sexual misconduct allegations at CNN involving members of his staff and then Tapper ran like a gazelle from a hungry lion.
You gotta love watching the supposedly squeaky clean, ethical, better than everyone else Tapper run like the wind.
What O’Keefe was questioning Tapper about was a video recorded of Rick Saleeby a senior producer of Tapper’s program claiming he knows all about and even witnessed CNN supervising producer of Tapper’s show Steve Brusk committing sexual misconduct. Saleeby said:
“So, like, there is this girl that was twenty-one. She’s actually a good friend of mine. She had just gotten hired after being an intern… And she was getting… There was a going-away party for a co-worker. We were all having a really good time… She was very well-liked. We were getting drunk. He started, like, staying close to her… Arm around her,” Saleeby recalled.
“She had a skirt on. I could see the hand. I, like, grab her. It looked like I was being the assaulter because I grabbed her so aggressive… To keep her from him. Like, go around her and go, ‘Come over here’ and looked at him because I could flatten him,” the CNN producer added. “I wouldn’t do it because then I would be the one who got fired… He would have absolutely been like, ‘get in a cab with me later.’”
“He had already been accused of the things prior, which I found out later,” he added.
I believe Tapper said once, “Those who express outrage at one sexual harasser and not another because of the first harasser’s political views, that is morally bankrupt.”
That was two years ago when Tapper was lecturing others about ethics and sexual harassment. But, today, Mr. Ethics ran saying “talk to our PR department,” who have refused to call O’Keefe back after being called 75 times.
I think Breitbart reporter wrote it best when he said:
“Something else we learned from Project Veritas is that CNN chief Jeff Zucker sometimes feels the need to tell Tapper what to say, to figuratively turn Tapper into a his own personal ventriloquist dummy so all the words come out correctly.
So maybe Tapper just isn’t bright enough to handle tough questions without Zucker pulling his mouth string…
Or maybe Tapper only cares about women and girls when protecting them comes with no personal cost to his status and income, when there’s no downside to his place as a company man who toes the company line…
What we do know is that there are some poor women at CNN that are being harassed and Tapper just doesn’t seem to care.
BREAKING: The only comment @jaketapper wanted to give me this morning was directing me to contact the “PR Department”…One huge problem with that, they also refuse to comment. I’ve called 75 times!
