CNN's Jake Tapper Demands to Know Trump's 'Plan' for Dealing with Virus. Maybe They Should Cover the Full Briefings?

CNN really takes the cake.

That animosity toward President Donald Trump throughout his time in office has been shameful.

CNN has even continued to place that narrative over informing the American public in the middle of a pandemic, refusing to cover the full Trump briefings on the virus response after polls showed that his approval was going up. They claimed that they didn’t want to cover “disinformation.” So instead they’ve been cutting away from briefings or not covering them.

So it really takes some nerve of CNN’s Jake Tapper to demand on his show on Sunday that the president tell America his “plan.” Listen to this take and tell me how this guy or this network can even pretend to be objective “journalists.”

If it’s not about “winning a news cycle,” why is Tapper taking a gratuitous shot not only at the president, but at Fox, which regularly trounces CNN in the ratings and has no problem actually covering the informational briefings? Because of course, it is about the anti-Trump, anti-Fox narrative.

Media Matters cheered his shot at Fox.

But Trump has literally addressed all these questions, from projections on how long we may have to adhere to the guidelines to detailed descriptions as to what is going on with supplying PPEs. Maybe CNN should actually report on what he’s saying?

Exactly. Let’s turn that around. What’s your plan to inform people, Jake Tapper and CNN, when you are actually denying them information to make their own judgements about? Why are you failing at journalism and trying to control the narrative? Maybe you should be more concerned about Americans than about trying to one-up Trump (and losing).
