CNN anchor Jake Tapper came clean on Kara Swisher’s podcast today admitting former President Donald Trump disrupted the media during his historic run for president in 2016.
Tapper said: “I think that every news organization in America was disrupted by Donald Trump. Especially by his attacking the media.
“Trump picked on us a lot, but that’s OK, he knocked everybody in the news media off. We have to cover him, we can’t ignore him.
“Do I think we were knocked off our equilibrium a little bit during the Trump years? Yes, every media organization was, to some degree or another.
“But do I think that we needed some sort of wholesale revision?
“No I do not,” he said.
Tapper was recently seen going Hollywood. According to Deadline:
A photo of an al fresco dinner party in Idaho has gone viral because of its unexpected mix of celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Jimmy Fallon, and Jake Tapper.
More than 9 million people have viewed the Twitter photo that first originated on Kristen Bell’s Instagram feed, after a Netflix employee called attention to the random assemblage at the waterside meal.
The photo was taken at Idaho’s South Fork Lodge, which was purchased by avid fly fisherman Jimmy Kimmel in 2020.
“This photo from kristen bell’s dinner party gets increasingly WTF as you go down the table,” the tweet reads.
Joining Tapper for some outdoor fellowship are Courtney Cox, Olivia Munn, John Mulaney, Adam Scott, Jason Bateman, Shiri Appelby, Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid and former NASA engineer Mark Rober.
