CNN’s Tapper: Palatable to Left and Right

CNN’s Jake Tapper has long been viewed among the few TV journalists in Washington not on Fox News who routinely gets praise from the right-wing media. In a HuffPost story Wednesday, media writer Michael Calderone gets a quote from Tapper that is sure to please what he hopes will be his left and right-wing audience on his new program, “The Lead” which debuts Monday at 4 p.m.

An excerpt:

“Whether it’s drones or Benghazi, I want to be an outlet that covers a lot of those stories. Whether it’s what effect Obamacare will have on businesses or the treatment of Bradley Manning. These are stories I will cover and they’re ones that maybe more liberals have an interest in one and maybe more conservatives have an interest in another, but I think that they’re important and I hope that at this point, I have become an honest enough broker that viewers will tune in because they know that I will be able to get guests and ask tough questions regardless of the party affiliation of those I’m asking. I hope. That’s the hope.”
