Anyone with a brain knows that the media let Obama get away with lying repeatedly over the last eight years. Still, it’s nice to hear someone who works in liberal media admit it.

Jake Tapper Comes Clean: Obama Lied and Biased Media Let Him Get Away With It
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, CNN host Jake Tapper spilled the beans on the biased media, saying they let President Obama get away with telling lies while President Trump is always in the crosshairs.
Tapper didn’t think it was fair to compare Obama with Trump too much — “they’re different and the scale isn’t even remotely the same” — but he was willing to admit, “President Obama said things that weren’t true and got away with it more for a variety of reasons, and one is the media was much more supportive of him.”
Tapper said when he was critical of the last administration, “A lot of people on the left didn’t like it,” but now that he is more critical of Trump, “They like it.”
“The Obama White House thought I was self-righteous and a huge pain in the ass,” Tapper added.
On whether or not people are more interested in hearing “something that confirms their own worldview” as opposed to knowing just the facts, Tapper said…
People working in the liberal media today just can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to Trump. They all see it as their personal mission to take him down.
