More Conflicts Of Interest Between Administration And Media Found!!!


Yesterday, I showed the readers here about the conflicts of interest between our media and the current administration.  Now we have more……..

Newsbusters gives us this……

imageThomas R. Nides (b. ca. 1961

[1]) is the current United States Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, having assumed that office on January 3, 2011.  His wife?  VP and Deputy Bureau Chief of the DC bureau for CNN, Virginia Moseley.  


imageAnd then there’s Ben Sherwood.  He’s the president of ABC image News.  His sister is Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall.  She was named special assistant to President Obama at the National Security Council in January 2009. 


imageAnd guess who this lovely is?  Why that’s Claire Shipman. image She’s senior national correspondent for the ABC program, Good Morning AmericaHer husband?  Jay Carney. 



imageMore on GMA, Bianna Golodryga is an American televisionimage journalist and co-anchor of the weekend edition of Good Morning AmericaHer husband was Zero’s first Director of the Office of Management and Budget.  Among other things, he’s currently a columnist at Bloomberg View.


imageAnother ABC reporter, Matt Jaffe, he’s married to Obama’s deputyimage press secretary, Katie Hogan.  



Ian Cameron, former executive producer of ABC’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour, well, guess who his wife is?  Yeh, Susan Rice.   


For semi-completeness, I’ll simply add what I wrote, yesterday……


The Daily Caller reports….. those are the Rhodes brothers. 

President Obama’s deputy national security advisor, Ben Rhodesbrother of CBS News president David Rhodes — was instrumental in changing the talking points in September 2012.

Oddly, other than Fox and the new media, about the only one reporting on Benghazi was CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson.  Recently, some unnamed CBS execs have expressed concern Ms. Attkisson’s reporting was “bordering on advocacy“.  And, they’ve quashed her stories.

But, that’s not all of this incestuous relationship between the power circles of this administration and the media. 

imageMatthew Cooper (born 1963) is the managing editor for White Houseimage coverage for National Journal magazine.  He’s the separated husband of Mandy Grunwald, Dem operative and long time Hillary aide and advisor.  She’s a daughter of the late Henry Grunwald, former editor-in-chief of Time magazine.   


imageLissa Muscatine is Senior Adviser and Chief of Speechwriting at the image U.S. State Department.  Her husband?  Washington Post editor Bradley Graham.



Personally, I think this is a huge story.  But, then, who’s going to report on this?  Our media is literally in bed with this administration.  And, they’re related.  I know there’s more out there.  Any one else care to contribute?

    We have a lot of this also in Oz. My local MP Greg Combet the leftwing Federal Minister of Climate Change separated with his 2nd wife and is now living with the main nightly newsreader for the government TV network. She is intelligent, blonde and pretty.

    About thirty years ago networks discovered that having blonde babes on newsdesks was good for ratings.

    It started as a sober guy and a pretty lady in teams, because sensibility was that guys in suits were serious and trustworthy, with the lady alongside to get the ratings eyeballs. Then it evolved so that the guys went away. Which saved money (there are plenty of young lady journos coming through the unis, and young ladies tend not to be able to force the networks to pay big bucks, not least because the network will just find another cheaper young lady to replace her).

    The same then happened to reporters themselves. The networks sought out pretty young lady journos and gave them correspondent jobs.

    Including those doing the political rounds.

    They did well since they are bright and intelligent professionals, and young women inherently are better communicators than men.

    And journalism schools are overwhelmingly slanted to the left. You can’t graduate without the ability to talk the talk. And young people tend to be more open to idealism than older people who have had the chance to build some defenses.

    So now you have a stream of pretty young ladies, overwhelmingly with leftist slants, in constant contact with politicians who tend to be male because you have to be the go gettem type to win preselection (or primaries, in your country).

    Interesting social experiment. I wonder what all the progeny are going to turn out like?

      I can attest to the leftist slant in journalism education. I took a few journalism classes. They were simply indoctrination classes. One simply didn’t get the grades unless one spewed the party line in the assignments.

    This republic is hanging on by its fingernails – only due to alternate media.
