Miller slams CNN for 'low journalistic standards' during Fox interview

Share

Blitzer's comments regarding Trump comes just days after White House advisor Stephen Miller and CNN's Jake Tapper engaged in a fiery exchange; with Miller slamming the network after the anchor questioned the President's mental health and fitness for office.

Carlson, however, did reference a video which is known to exist of Miller and Tapper sparring after the segment ended during the commercial break, partial transcripts of which were leaked online Monday. "I get it - there is one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious, you're being a factotum in order to please him", Tapper said, ending the interview. "CNN has been extraordinarily biased, extraordinarily unfair to the president and is not giving their viewers honest information".

"This is the reason they don't put you on TV", Tapper responded.

Despite having "no knowledge" of the meeting, Miller said he was certain all of the allegations in Wolff's book are "a pure work of fiction" and "nothing but a pile of trash through and through".

"You worked hand in glove with Steve Bannon in the White House and on the campaign", Tapper asked. Now, Bannon's out of favor, and Miller is tearing him apart.

To this, Miller responded by stating that the president has been talking about trade, immigration and other salient issues to the working class for years.

Miller, during his CNN appearance, praised Trump as "a self-made billionaire who revolutionized reality TV and who has changed the course of our politics".

Tapper interrupted Miller there, saying, "I'm sure he's watching and he's happy that you said that".

The interview became so contentious that Tapper cut the interview short, claiming Miller was "wasting his viewers' time".

After a few more exchanges like this, Tapper made a decision to cut Miller off for good.
