Jake Tapper is out

Jake Tapper, the only member of the White House press corps who occasionally asks this administration tough questions, is leaving for an anchor job at CNN. The move comes shortly after he asked President Obama a tough question on his new gun control agenda.

I’d be interested to hear the story behind his departure. It’s arguably a promotion, but the timing is curious and Tapper probably had more influence at his old job than he will at CNN.
