Amanpour Fails. Why Not Jake Tapper?

Email Email Print

ABC has ended Christiane Amanpour’s disastrous run as anchor of This Week, but rather than do the obvious thing –the best thing for ratings– and bring Jake Tapper into the weekend anchor chair, the network is dragging George Stephanopoulos back.

Apparently the risk of attracting center-right viewers by bringing in Tapper who is very tough on everyone, as was the late Tim Russert, was just too big of a risk to run in a year when President Obama needs help from his MSM pals. Stephanopoulos runs a decent show but, like the 60 Minutes gang did on Sunday night, is never going to hit the president hard with obvious and pressing questions. Tapper has shown that willingness in the White House Press Room, and he would have brought people from my side of the political aisle to sample and perhaps stay.
