NewsBusters Podcast: Tapper Fails and Fetterman Flails

October 12th, 2022 10:55 PM

There were two big TV interviews on October 11. CNN kicked off their primetime Jake Tapper show with a softball interview with Biden, and Tapper spent the first chunk asking about Russia and Putin and Ukraine. Then came a weird segment where the Facts First network played along with Biden and pretended the nation is not currently in a recession.

But the worst softball was asking the president an open-ended question about the possible indictment of his son Hunter: "Prosecutors think they have enough to charge your son, Hunter, for tax crimes and a false statement about a gun purchase. Personally and politically, how do you react to that?"

We would like someone to ask Biden about how the Democrats all insisted the Hunter laptop was a phony Russian plot, and now it's not. We would like someone to ask Biden how he can possibly lie -- given the laptop evidence -- that he didn't discuss Hunter's clients with him.

Meanwhile, NBC reporter Dasha Burns sternly questioned John Fetterman about his lack of transparency about his medical struggles after a stroke. Burns upset liberals by explaining beforehand that Fetterman required a Tele-Prompter to understand the questions, since he's having "auditory processing" issues. Democrats don't want you discussing how Fetterman is currently unable to debate on the floor of the Senate.

Our night watchman Kevin Tober joins the show to analyze it all. Follow him on Twitter at @kevintober94.
