CNN's Jake Tapper: My Job Is To Tell The Truth, Not Be Liked By President

Jake Tapper, who has risen to be CNN's top on-air personality with his no-nonsense style, tells Stephen Colbert he doesn't care if President Donald Trump calls his network "fake news" or keeps disparaging them.

"I don't think anybody cares," says Tapper. "I'm not comparing the two, because they're quite different, but I don't think President Obama was a particular fan of mine."

"I mean the job isn't to be liked. That's your job -- to be liked," he tells Colbert. "My job is not to be liked. My job is to tell the truth and deliver the facts and hold people accountable."

The two reminisce about knowing each other for 13 years and recall the moment Stephen Colbert landed his own Comedy Central show 'The Colbert Report'.
