Jake Tapper schools Robert Gibbs on transparency

Throughout the media frenzy over Barack Obama last year, ABC News’ Jake Tapper was a bright beacon of light, shining scrutiny onto all candidates, not just those on one side of the aisle or another. He has continued his exemplary work this week, as in this video clip you can see him schooling Obama spox Robert Gibbs on Obama’s position on transparency during yesterday’s press briefing. Ouch.

The relevant part of the transcript is here, but the video is much better.

My hat continues to be off to Tapper. Too bad more mainstream media journalists don’t take his approach to reporting the facts.
