CNN’s Tapper ‘insulted’ Tillerson won’t be bringing press on Asia trip, then he’s mercilessly reminded why

A lot is riding on the success of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s trip to Asia and CNN’s Jake Tapper thinks there is already a problem.

Tapper blasted President Donald Trump’s administration for its plan to send Tillerson on the trip without any reporters along in a tweet on Thursday.

Apparently the CNN anchor thought it’s the media’s responsibility to make sure Tillerson’s every move is covered, especially if things don’t go well.

Tillerson’s five-day visit later this month will include visits to Japan, China and South Korea.

Tensions have been escalating in the region after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s controversial missile launches.

But Tapper’s mini-rant about the “unusual & insulting” decision to exclude the press will not likely change anything. Twitter users offered him a sober lesson in journalistic responsibility.
