CNN’s April Ryan has spent the last four years being positively hostile to the Trump administration.
Her network has thrived on leaked information, and used it as a political weapon against Trump whenever they could.
Now that has all changed. April Ryan no longer likes leaks, if they might damage Joe Biden.
FOX News reports:
CNN’s April Ryan suggests journalists shouldn’t expose Biden’s contradictions, use leaked recordings
White House correspondent April Ryan raised eyebrows on Friday after she appeared to endorse the idea that journalists shouldn’t reveal contradictions between President-elect Joe Biden’s public and private statements.
On Thursday, Ryan appeared to express disapproval that a recording of Biden claiming “defund the police” rhetoric hurt down-ballot Democrats in last month’s elections was leaked to The Intercept, which duly reported on it.
“I asked an incoming White House source was the meeting contentious with civil rights leader and @JoeBiden and the answer was ‘no’. A rights leader at the meeting says @JoeBiden was passionate,” Ryan tweeted. “The question is who taped this meeting and why? What is the agenda?”…
See Ryan’s tweet below:
The question is who leaked this and why? Also I am told by a rights leader in that meeting that @JoeBiden was being more so passionate than defensive. Can’t wait to hear what the Biden camp has to say! https://t.co/KNQAmE6tZl

She’s such a hypocrite. This response to Ryan is perfect:
Would you consider yourself a reporter at this point or is that more of a former job description

And look at this tweet from Ryan last spring:
So who is eagerly waiting to hear these audio tapes of Melania Trump talking about bad about @realDonaldTrump @IvankaTrump & the rest of his adult children? I’m ready! (Story broken by @yashar) #RNC2020 #MelaniaTrump https://t.co/BGiVt4Nowl

Some leaks are good, apparently.
