Power 100: Jake Tapper & Wolf Blitzer

, Chief Washington correspondent, CNN
, Lead political anchor, CNN

People forget that Jake Tapper also clashed with the Obama White House, just as he does now with the Trump White House. In a recent interview he said the media often gave Obama a free ride, and sometimes give Trump too hard a ride. As an on-air interviewer he is fair, but sometimes finds it hard to suppress his indignation, as evidenced in a recent interview in which he summarily dismissed Trump advisor and speechwriter Stephen Miller. Blitzer, anchor of CNN’s “Situation Room,” is Tapper’s on-camera opposite – calm, controlled and low key. His demeanor has helped him remain one of the mainstay faces of CNN.
