Jake Tapper, Chief Washington correspondent, CNN
Wolf Blitzer, 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.
