TVNewser: ABC News White House correspondent Jake Tapper is profiled by National Review Online’s Mark Hemingway, and the conservative Website had high praise for the reporter who went toe-to-toe with White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.
“He’s one of the last remaining journalists in America who take the responsibilities of their jobs seriously, and thus place a premium on their credibility,” writes Hemingway. “Tapper isn’t afraid to go against the grain of the liberal consensus in pursuit of a story.”
“I hope I’m tough and consistent. I can’t say I always achieve that stance, but I do aspire to it,” he says.
But Tapper notes Rush Limbaugh‘s praise may be short lived. “It’s always nice to be complimented â€” if that’s what that was,” he says. “Believe me, I don’t doubt there will come a day when Mr. Limbaugh and National Review consider me once again to be part of the ‘MSM,’ either too tough on Republicans or insufficiently tough on Democrats.”
