Tapper CNN Show to Fill 4PM Slot

Tapper CNN Show to Fill 4PM Slot

In dribs and drabs, we’re learning more about how CNN intends to use its new acquisition, Jake Tapper. Tuesday marked the official end of Tapper’s contract with ABC News and therefore his debut at his new home. According to TVNewser, Tapper’s expecting his upcoming show to debut on CNN at 4 p.m.

That’s bad news for those who had hoped Tapper’s arrival would mean that at least one of CNN’s Obama sycophants would find themselves out in the cold reality of the Obama economy to which they condemn the rest of us. There is one silver lining. The 4 p.m. slot means one less hour of Wolf Blitzer, who currently anchors three hours, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

One less hour of Blitzer entering The Relentless Monotoned Obama Talking Point Zone is a win for America.

You can read the full article here. Tapper talks about what he did during his time off, his thoughts on getting passed over for ABC’s “This Week,” which he says had nothing to do with his decision to leave, and his desire not to be Ron Burgandy.

Tapper is also still busy promoting his terrific new book, “The Outpost: ‘The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor,’ a New York Times bestseller.
