Later today, CNN anchor Jake Tapper will be our guest on “The Book Show,” to discuss his new thriller, "The Devil May Dance." In that interview, we focus on the book which deals with a mystery in Hollywood during the height of the Rat Pack.

This morning we talk with Jake Tapper about a Washington Post Article last month headlined: The new CNN is more opinionated and emotional. Can it still be ‘the most trusted name in news’?

In the article – journalist Jeremy Barr – writes: As the first presidential debate of the 2020 general election came to a close last fall, CNN’s top anchors and political correspondents stepped up to offer their seasoned perspective and analysis.

“That,” said anchor Jake Tapper, “was a hot mess, inside a dumpster fire, inside a train wreck.” But political correspondent Dana Bash insisted on cutting to the chase. “You used some high-minded language,” she parried. “I’m just going to say it like it is: That was a s--- show.” While that article was much discussed - I asked Jake Tapper what he made of it.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets.
