The Wayward Journalist: The Fury and Failure of Jake Tapper
There are few who would claim that any semblance of objectivity in news reporting remains. The public is becoming aware of the ensuing consequences, as ethically compromised journalists shape the truth to satisfy the dictates of their masters.
Challenging a reporter’s veracity usually serves their interest in gaining attention. However, after reading an interview with Jake Tapper, CNN’s Washington news anchor, I felt compelled to examine and disassemble his biased commentary.
Tapper’s latest rhetoric inspired this effort to reveal how his news coverage is a ruse for indoctrination; the damaging effects of his propaganda are important to consider.
As he increasingly misinforms and misdirects the public, Tapper’s obsessive slander of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. becomes more deranged; revealing more about himself than the presidential candidate. In a desperate attempt to discredit Kennedy, he suggests that readers examine the story of the Samoan measles outbreak of 2019. An investigation into this healthcare calamity reveals the depth of Tapper’s dishonest journalism. His methods of manipulating information are analyzed herein.
Jake Tapper’s smug observations in a recent rant epitomize a pattern of distorting and limiting news coverage with falsification and innuendo. Rather than fair and responsible reporting about a legitimate presidential candidate, Tapper conducts an Inquisition — and Kennedy is his blasphemous heretic. As the following excerpt demonstrates, he makes his nefarious agenda and vicious methodology quite conspicuous.
Well, just to touch on the Robert Kennedy Jr. thing, one thing I’ll say is his entire being and prominence, his entire public position, is based on lies about childhood vaccines that have saved the lives of tens, if not hundreds, of millions, if not billions, of children throughout the years. And one can see a direct cause and effect of what he says about MMR vaccines and the like breaking out every now and then. Just anybody listening, go Google: Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Samoa, and measles — and you can read something about, that’s what I’m talking about.
This single outburst exposes the array of Tapper’s devices, frustrations, and failures; evidenced by the repetition of insults without substantiation. By promoting the vaguest generalities, the defects of his arguments are on full display.
He fails to present confirmation of allegations made against RFK Jr., and in this void begins by invoking the “Robert Kennedy Jr. thing” — while the Kennedy campaign platform is entirely ignored.
Incredibly, Tapper holds himself up as an irrefutable sanctimonious authority by declaring Kennedy’s “entire being and prominence” is “based on lies about childhood vaccines.”
He relies on a narrow range of information to state the broadest, baseless assumptions. In the realm of factual data, he demonstrates that his mathematical and analytical skills are worthless, conspicuously blurting out that vaccines have saved “the lives of tens, if not hundreds, of millions, if not billions, of children.”
An absurd estimate of lives saved reflects considerable ignorance or deceit, or more likely, both. This ludicrous statement exemplifies how Tapper willingly applies irrationality in his malevolent personal attacks on Kennedy.
His pompous use of character assassination is the same primary technique applied by propagandists to minimize dissent in totalitarian states.
Tapper’s ravings against Kennedy culminate in a command to “go Google…” — further indicating that he has no semblance of the foundations of impartial, insightful, and plausible news gathering. He urges those who have doubts to rely on an internet search engine with acknowledged subjective algorithms to back up his gratuitous obnoxious sentiments.
Those who do search for Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Samoa, and measles, won’t be surprised at the initial results. They include an array of articles that repeat inaccuracies and attempt to assure readers that the Samoan measles outbreak in 2019 was due to a reduction in the number of children receiving a vaccination. These hit pieces cover the predictable talking points of Big Pharma’s vaccine promotional playbook. Numerous accounts and editorials blame those who doubted vaccine efficacy and safety.
The articles include a relentless unfounded criticism of Kennedy in an endeavor to make him look dangerously ignorant and responsible for the suffering. They deride his reasonable comments and exclude his detailed letter to the Samoan Prime Minister, suggesting possible causes of the strange, virulent outbreak of measles.
Tapper, perhaps recognizing the correspondence is a reasoned analysis, never mentions it. (Download available below)
He fully expects readers to look no further than he suggests and simply agree with his misleading evaluation and patronizing assurances. Assuming there wouldn’t be any questions about his veracity, Tapper continues to rely heavily on his absolute dismissal of Kennedy’s “entire being.”
With the ruse of protective guidance, the star reporter distracts rather than informs. This strategy does the worst kind of damage; victims of this subterfuge succumb to his slick narrative and give up their own moral and medical autonomy.
For the last few years, Tapper has been repeating the same misleading instruction suggesting that Kennedy’s faults can be confirmed online by examining the Samoan tragedy. Unwittingly, he directs us toward details that demonstrate how governments and news media blindly peddle Big Pharma’s sales pitch, while ignoring all risks.
Tapper’s fateful error is pointing towards Samoa, and by doing so, he has assisted in verifying his artifice.
The Inquisitor Fails
In striving to limit knowledge when urging readers to go Google with only his terms, Tapper has diminished the probability of finding the complete story. But simply searching beyond his constraints and looking at results for — Samoa, measles, and “under attenuated vaccine” (in quotes) — the articles that come up are informative.
The Killing Fields Of Samoa is an overall analysis by a local scientist that points to problematic inconsistencies in the mainstream narrative. It includes many details including how Tonga and Fiji had measles outbreaks at the same time, although their vaccination rates were over 90%. The author points out that there is no data suggesting any measles vaccine reduces disease symptoms or outcomes, so the higher death rate in Samoa, where vaccine rates were much lower, remains an unexplained discrepancy.
Another key article easily found using the above search terms is titled Vaccines and The Suffering Children of Samoa, one of the very few detailed investigative reports about what actually occurred during the outbreak. (full article below). The protagonist of this illustrative tale is a farmer, Edwin Tamasese, who questioned his government’s health policy and doubted the safety of the measles vaccination. During the outbreak in 2019, he was concerned about the unprecedented number of sick and dying Samoan children and began to assist families whose children were very ill; supporting the distribution of vitamins A and D, and providing dietary advice. He recognized that most of the cases occurred after a measles vaccination campaign had begun.
Mr. Tamasese describes what he and his colleagues observed:
What I was seeing personally on the ground was that six to seven days post vaccination huge outbreaks were occurring in the villages that the vaccination vans were entering. We were very careful to take statistics when we were going in to try to identify trends. When we assessed our numbers, 98 per cent of those that were getting ill had been vaccinated consistently six to seven days prior to illness. The excuse was that the vaccine did not have time to become effective. However according to an immunologist on the team assisting, the six to seven-day period was also the length of time it would take an under-attenuated vaccine to make the recipient sick.
Ignoring this possibility, the Samoan government continued to assure the public that infection spread because the vaccine was not given in time to prevent transmission. Although health authorities switched to a different source for the vaccine, there was no other accounting for the high rates of illness and death. Mr. Tamasese was blamed for exacerbating the outbreak as an anti-vaccine campaigner. He was ultimately arrested and charged with treating children without a medical license.
If they dared to mention him, Tapper and reporters of his ilk would say Mr. Tamasese was a criminal with no appreciation for the wonders of vaccines. His arrest was hailed by the press around the world, though most news coverage neglected to report later that all charges were dismissed. The Samoan prosecutors failed to provide any evidence against Mr. Tamasese.
CNN and Tapper’s award-winning journalism missed this telling account of his trial:
When his case came to trial in December 2020, the judge was also the coroner presiding over the inquests. The prosecution put up a single witness against Tamasese, a nurse with a sick child. He had entered a hospital ward to offer the child vitamin A and vitamin C. Tamasese says the judge started questioning the witness herself.
It emerged that the witness had given her child the vitamins recommended by Tamasese, and had stopped giving it all the hospital medication — and her child had recovered.
‘The judge dismissed the witness after my lawyer said she didn’t have any questions,’ said Tamasese. ‘When the witness left the room, the judge turned to the prosecution lawyer and asked her: ‘This is your witness? That witness may as well have represented the accused!’
The judge dismissed the case, saying Tamasese had no case to answer. The public health authorities, on the other hand, have plenty.
If the details Mr. Tamasese presented were fully evaluated, an insightful news story could have been developed and reported. A full-scale, on-the-ground, CNN investigation of the Samoan measles outbreak would have verified his allegations. This didn’t happen because efforts to reveal the truth don’t serve the interests of Tapper and his collaborators.
He has simply ignored the many important details and studies available to evaluate both the Samoan outbreak and the COVID-19 fiasco.
Throughout the pandemic, Tapper consistently churned out infomercials for Pfizer and Moderna and attacked those who countered the flawed conventional wisdom asserted by the government. He continues to ignore the risks versus benefits studies that confirm the incidence of serious complications and possible long-term effects of the mRNA vaccines.
Strikingly similar to the meager coverage of events in Samoa, the travesty of the pandemic response can be associated with the failure of journalists to fully evaluate dictates and data. Scarce reporting on vaccine risks and injuries betrays an allegiance to an unprecedented sales campaign.
You Shall Not Spread A False Report
What we do know about the Samoan measles outbreak supports Kennedy’s contention that any vaccine development and application needs to be independently evaluated and monitored to prevent damage and death. His presidential candidacy is giving him increased opportunities to present this reasonable perspective.
Tapper is recognizing that his own central mission — to repress the Kennedy campaign — is collapsing. Thus we witness his increasing resentment and vehement personal condemnation of Kennedy at every opportunity.
Rather than searching for any truth that might support the good health of his audience, he has persisted in attempting to sway and mislead the public. Tapper is trapped in his own lies; he continues to rely on the ignorance of those who won’t look any deeper into the stories that serve his masters.
It is indisputable that Tapper is a well-paid actor in this travesty; and that his role is to crush those with opinions or facts that get in the way of his employer’s agenda.
Examining his omissions and unwillingness to expose the sins of his benefactors, Americans should be very concerned about what they haven’t been told — thanks to CNN’s star reporter.
It is becoming obvious that Tapper is responsible for much suffering and death — rather than any of those to whom he directs his venomous tirades. The repercussions of what he has done are immeasurable. We will never know how many millions of people Tapper has harmed with his blind promotion of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Tapper’s holier-than-thou approach to news coverage doesn’t stop with glossing over distressing information about vaccines. During the Trump impeachment trial, one of the president’s attorneys departed the Senate hearings early to observe the Jewish Sabbath. Tapper immediately sent out a tweet with a Biblical quote, revealing his inquisitional mindset:
At synagogue tomorrow, he will hear the reading from the Torah of: Mishpatim — Rules: You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness. You shall not fall in with the many to do evil…
Tapper’s pretentious assumption that he can morally demean those with whom he disagrees is evidence of his extremism; his judgment is best self-applied. A brilliant reply to this bold tweet captured its ego-driven attempt to humiliate:
Why go to your chosen house of worship when you can just get your spiritual dictates from some dude on CNN?
Tapper’s indenture to the most dangerous humans on the planet has skewed his worldview. He is deeply compromised by the darkest forces motivating his manipulations. He lies on behalf of political and financial interests that provide his scripted falsifications. And rather than engage in debate, he insists on ex-communication for anyone who questions the corporate dictates he exudes.
Tapper is certainly not naive, thus his subjective stream-of-consciousness narrative is undoubtedly disingenuous — and central to a fraudulent scheme. His shameful pretense has no bounds; he makes no attempt to fully understand events with fair analysis.
Tapper’s work is certainly not journalism.
One of our country’s most important freedoms is that of free speech.
