This afternoon we reported that CNN has been actively pursuing ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper.

Here’s what ABC had to say:

Tapper: “Being the White House correspondent for ABC News is a dream job, one I’m focused on 100%. I couldn’t be happier where I am right now.”

ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider said: “Hardly surprised to read about all kinds of poachers being interested in Jake Tapper – that’s what happens when you are at the top of your profession.  We are thrilled Jake works for ABC News and expect him to have a leadership role here for a long time to come. “
