CNN Is Moving Jake Tapper To Primetime And Their Viewers Are Not Happy

Over the last several years, CNN’s viewership has become very far left. THis is not surprising because that is who they have catered to and who has tuned in to their enti-Trump shows.

Now the network is trying to make a move for a more centrist view and their viewers aren’t happy about it.

Jake Tapper is a man of the left, but he has crafted a persona of being down the middle. In their new centrist push, they are moving Tapper to a primetime slot and their left wing fans feel betrayed.

The New York Post reports:

CNN viewers melting down over Jake Tapper’s primetime promotion

Viewers ripped CNN over its promotion of Jake Tapper to its coveted 9 p.m. slot — with some claiming a recent shift in the anchor’s left-leaning reporting to more centrist and conservative-friendly takes amounts to “pandering” and “kissing up” to his new bosses.

Tapper’s star is rising as CNN’s new boss Chris Licht has been cleaning house and pushing a more middle-of-the-road approach, moving away from punditry that focused on criticizing the Trump administration and conservatives to boost ratings.

“Tapper is trying to survive,” said a media source. “He’s kowtowing to his bosses.”

“He’s very ambitious” and “very hard-working” with a “healthy ego,” added another source who had once worked with the anchor.

During President Donald Trump’s tenure, Tapper had emerged as a liberal bulldog, attacking the right over fake news on his shows “The Lead with Jake Tapper” and “State of the Union.” In 2018, the New York Times called him a “staunch defender of facts in the Trump era.”

People on the left actually believe Tapper is some kind of right winger.

It doesn’t look like this move is going to help the network very much.
