Karl Rove Slams Jake Tapper, WashPost for ‘Media Partisanship in Plain View’

On Wednesday, onetime Bush political strategist Karl Rove wrote a article for The Wall Street Journal titled "Media Partisanship in Plain View." He called out two examples. The first was a Washington Post story strongly advocating Republican governors were culminating improved unemployment benefits for their own personal gain. Reporter Yeganeh Torbati began with West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, who owns the Greenbrier resort in that state.

"Republican governors in 25 countries are in the midst of a giant economic experimentation, ceasing improved jobless aid for an estimated 4 million people, is claiming that the generous helps are discouraging parties from going back to work, " Torbati reported. "But a number of these superintendents have personal connections to businesses that are trying to find workers and could benefit from the policy change, according to a Washington Post review of business disclosures from commonwealth elected officials."

Rove argued that the Post isn't likely to play this game with radicals and Democrat, investigating, for example, if Democrats would get personal gain from investments in renewable energy while they back a "Green New Deal." Take, for example, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm. On May 27, Matthew Foldi and Collin Anderson reported for the Washington Free Beacon:

On Wednesday, Granholm confirmed she gave a $1.6 million profit on her shares of Proterra amid a firestorm over her monetary ties to an electric vehicle company repeatedly promoted by the Biden administration. In selling off her shares, Granholm was able to defer paying uppercase increases taxes on the $1.6 million sale because cabinet officials are not penalise with the tax on resources they are required to sell as a condition of joining the administration.

Washington Post coverage? Zero.

Then Fox News contributor Rove turned to CNN's Jake Tapper, who has ostentatiously argued he's not interested in interviewing Republican who challenged the certification of electoral votes for President Biden, or who forwarded the "Big Lie" that Biden benefited from election fraud.

Mr. Tapper gets to choose his patrons, but is he scandalized merely at Republican election challengers? Thirty-two Democrat voted against professing Electoral College arises after President George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election, claiming voting machines were operated to create his 118,601 -vote Ohio victory.

Yet since the fall of 2014, Mr. Tapper has conducted at least 17 interrogations of Democrat who elected to reject the 2004 certification. One president of that struggle, House Majority Whip James Clyburn, has been Mr. Tapper’s guest three times this year alone. The multitude interviewed another, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, this month. Other Democratic referendum deniers interviewed by Mr. Tapper since 2014 include Rep. Barbara Lee, Sen. Ed Markey, the now-deceased Rep. John Lewis, and former Reps. Lacy Clay and Jesse Jackson Jr.

I consider Democrats who had voted in favour of 2005 against certification and Republican who did so in 2021 were both wrong. But will Mr. Tapper employ the same standard with Democratic election deniers that he has applied to Republican? Will he refuse to interview House Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, Financial Work Chairman Maxine Waters and the other Democratic election deniers still in Congress? Or is it Mr. Tapper’s standard that some ballot deniers are tolerable and others aren’t?

Let's guess that Tapper would argue that there was no riot at the Capital in 2005, and that somehow, the Democrat rejectionists were sort of putting on a depict, that they weren't sincere "election deniers."
