The fake news merchants over at CNN now claim to be perturbed by, of all things, untruth.
CNN’s Jake Tapper and Brian Stelter got together for a segment to bash Trump aides and list those they wouldn’t give airtime to. Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany make the blacklist.
Tapper told Stelter he wouldn’t have her on his show on his show because she “lies the way that, you know, most people breathe. There was no value in that… She can’t acknowledge reality. So I am just not going to put somebody like that on air.”
Of course, the real reason they didn’t want her on the air is because she’d school them like she did every other hack journalist in the press briefing room.
McEnany used to be a commentator at CNN, one which Tapper was friendly with. A few months after she left the network and posted photos of her wedding in 2017, Tapper reached out to congratulate her and wish her a life of love and happiness. Obviously that doesn’t seem to be the case today.
2017 Jake Tapper: “Congrats on your wedding. I hope you live a life of love and happiness.”
2020 Jake Tapper: “Kayleigh is a liar and I would never bring her on my show.” (Even though he did several times when she was a CNN contributor)

In response to his most recent comments, McEnany fired back: “This is a therapy session for a broken network, and Jake Tapper is lazy enough to participate by lobbing baseless personal attacks, with ZERO evidence. Jake’s real problem: I do not leak. I do not lie. But I DO call out the lies of the media (i.e. CNN Russia collusion hoax!).”

Past guests that CNN has deemed suitable for their shows include white supremacist (and Biden voter) Richard Spencer, and serial liars such as former CIA officer John Brennan and “anonymous” whistleblower Miles Taylor, among countless others.
