Embarrassing: ABC's Jake Tapper Skips Keystone Decision, Shills for Obama and Disney
Over the two hours of Thursday's Good Morning America, there was not one mention of the Obama administration's decision to reject the Keystone oil pipeline, costing at least 20,000 jobs. Yet, Jake Tapper and ABC found time to promote both the administration's plan to create a "small world full of tourists who want to spend their money" and Disney World, parent company of ABC.
The segment, which featured clips of Beauty and the Beast and It's a Small World, included Robin Roberts gushing, "But, now, a big announcement about jobs from President Obama today." (She wasn't referring to Keystone, of course.) An excited Tapper enthused, "The President will announce this afternoon that he wants to make the United States the number one tourist destination in the world." [MP3 audio here.]
