Look, fair enough, but I'll just say this:

You put quotes around every capitalized word in that post and it reads like that classic SNL Farley bit.

I watch a lot of Jake Tapper and I've watched for longer than you have; you are grossly exaggerating when you talk about his mannerisms. He does not roll his eyes that much. He doesn't 'grimace' and 'smirk' like he's Ben Shapiro hearing something he doesn't like. You make it sound like he's snarky to every guest who disagrees with him and that is simply NOT true. He's one of CNN's better anchors. I like you Stads but you hyperbolize Jake Tapper's behavior so much. Not only that, but you do so in an effort to completely discredit his reporting, which is something you rarely talk about compared to his mannerisms. The guy's won many awards for his reporting and work and you aren't very fair to him at all - largely because of your inherent bias against him, he reports for CNN and reports things you don't agree with, therefore he's bad.

Tapper said something nice about Mahomes too.

I don't get it. Is that a sports joke? It's literally a running joke with my best friends to see if I can name half a dozen or more NFL players. That sounds like a sports joke to me. That sounds like a name you only hear if we're discussing people in jockstraps

It's a Stadler joke.

Well, we can agree to disagree, because for me ANY reaction is too much from a journalist who is presenting cold hard facts without commentary.  Chris Wallace can do it.   Walter Cronkite did it for decades, as did David Brinkley.   And as for the guests, well, you can count the number of guests that do disagree on one penis.  It's a cavalcade of insider baseball.   

The only thing missing from this paragraph is "back in my day...".  Oh, "AND WE LIKED IT!"

Maybe, but it's not like I'm lamenting the passing of the steam locomotive.  To this very day, when Trump cries "Fake News", we're susceptible to a lecture by critics, pundits and members of said press on the sanctity and importance of the "Fourth Estate" and their historic role in democracy.   It either is or it isn't, and morphing from fact-driven delivery of information to opinionated bloviating is a material difference in that context.

But, we did like it.  ;)  :)
