Jake Tapper Goes Off on State Dept. Video Edit: ‘We Deserve to Know Who Lied to Us’
CNN’s Jake Tapper really went in hard against the State Department this afternoon following the admission that someone edited a damning exchange on Iran from a 2013 State briefing video.
After calling out media bias on the matter earlier today, Tapper recounted the entire mess of lies this afternoon and how then-State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki clearly “lied” to reporter James Rosen and to the american public.
He said there are clearly so many questions about the three big lies here: the lie about the secret talks with Iran, the scrubbing of the video, and the “glitch” excuse.
“Just as the public has a right to know the truth,” Tapper concluded, “we have a right to know who lied to us. And why.”
