In yet another stain on what was once a respected profession, CNN’s Jake Tapper showed just how little he knew about what he was talking about, while a relatively scrubbed clip of Suzanne Malveaux illustrated how unprepared she is doing any segment with a high profile celebrity.
Regarding President Trump’s pardon of attribution-challenged Dinesh D’Souza and hinted-at possible pardons of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and television chef Martha Stewart….
President Donald Trump told reporters Thursday that he is considering pardoning Martha Stewart and commuting former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s sentence. Trump floated the idea of pardoning or commuting the sentences of the two former “Apprentice” series stars hours after he pardoned the conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

On Thursday’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, he led off with a curious assertion.
The fact Tapper called those in his lead segment “heroes of the far right” is almost totally inaccurate. While we have issues on the possible and lucrative inspiration that put D’Souza on the map, he may be a “hero” to some but we know on no one on the “far right” who considered disgraced Democrat former Governor Blagojevich or Martha Stewart a “hero of the far right”.
Whether Tapper was reading sloppy text off a teleprompter or was injecting inaccurate politics to the ignorant on the left is unknown but the fact it was done in the first place proves yet again how deservedly irrelevant CNN continues to be.
