Tapper Smacks Down Fox Contributor For Complaining He Labeled Angus King an Independent

For some reason, Fox News business contributor Gary Kaltbaum thought it would be a good idea to accuse CNN’s Jake Tapper of media bias on Sunday over Tapper’s State of the Union interview with Sen. Angus King (I-ME). So, what was Kaltbaum’s beef? Well, here’s the tweet:

Yep, the political commentator thought it was outrageous that Tapper had the temerity to label an independent senator as an…independent. Oof.

The CNN anchor wasn’t about to let that slide and highlighted that not only was it correct to refer to King as an independent, but that Fox News had done the same thing in the past.

It wasn’t just Tapper giving Kaltbaum grief. One need only look at The Ratio of the Fox contributor’s tweet to see how the rest of the Twittersphere reacted to Kaltbaum’s observation.

Meanwhile, Kaltbaum defended his initial tweet, stating King can “call himself what he wants but he votes Democrat.”

Maybe you should stop tweeting for a while, Gary. Maybe sit the next couple plays out.
