You’re probably familiar with the term “peak TV” for this century’s boom in big television (shows like The Sopranos etc.), but you may not be familiar with a similar term for the age of cable news: Weak TV. CNN’s primary export. Y’all know what’s coming…
That Fat, Dumb, and Bald Guy: Suuure. Plays. Some. Weak. T.V. [dah-dah-dum-dum-dah]
It was game ON today on CNN, as FDABG Stelter interviewed Jake Tapper (known in some social media circles, though maybe not too cleverly, as “Fake Tapper”) about interviewing big fat liars.
Yes Brian Stelter interviewed Jake Tapper about interviewing liars and somehow the universe didn’t fold over on itself and collapse into nothingness.
Technically, the topic was the two of them patting each other on the back while also crying about how tough and hard it has been for poor, rich, white cable news anchors during the Trump years. But the particular clip here is about interviewing people.

Man if that ain’t the pot pointing at his own reflection and screaming “black kettle!” then I don’t know what is.
Tapper, by the way, has interviewed Anthony Scaramucci (once he became anti-Trump). He interviewed proven liar and criminal Michael Avenatti.
Also you might mention Stacey Abrams, Andrew Cuomo, Chuck Schumer… I mean we could go on. And don’t even get me started on the tripe that passes for content on the FDABG’s show.
What a joke!
