‘Wow, does Jake Tapper still have a job?’ CNN’s star host raises eyebrows with ‘HEAL THYSELF’ comment

On Thursday CNN host Jake Tapper tweeted something uncharacteristic, a call for the Left to, in effect, straighten up.

What Tapper was referring to specifically was a “fake” story about a Jewish family supposedly being “forced” to leave town after complaining about a school production of the Christmastime classic “A Christmas Carol.”

The Huffington Post, that paragon of “real,” unbiased news, was all over it.

So was Slate:

Except, the family actually went away on vacation, not to flee a modern-day pogrom. Even the ADL says so now:

Well, at least give them kudos for the correction, right? Not so fast! Jake Tapper is tired of nonsense like this and feels like more should have been done:

Which, of course, led to Tapper’s Tweet posted at the beginning of this piece, a call for the media to “heal thyself.” Social media reaction was numerous and varied:
