Lapdog media fail to report new CNN dep. bureau chief is married to Obama official!/RichardGrenell/status/269651515369742336

Ladies and gentlemen, your lapdog media at work.

On Friday, Politico, CNN and other news outlets reported that “Good Morning America” producer Virginia Moseley will join CNN as vice president and deputy bureau chief in Washington. Here’s what they didn’t mention: Moseley is married to Tom Nides, President Obama’s deputy secretary of state for management and resources.

That’s not worth a mention? Of course not.

Former Mitt Romney aide Richard Grenell called out the lapdogs for failing (as they so often do) to disclose the newsworthy connection.

Politico’s Media Reporter @dylanbyers fails to disclose that new CNN Dep Bureau Chief is married to Obama’s Deputy Secretary of State. why?

In September, Politico mentioned the relationship in passing:

Nides and his wife, Virginia Moseley of ABC News, are close personally to the president and Michelle Obama.

Yep, the same Politico that thought it was hunky dory to leave that tidbit out of yesterday’s report.

. @dylanbyers just re-tweeted me. he’s proud that he didn’t disclose the connection. DC reporters think its irrelevant, the people don’t.

Bingo! The people find this very relevant.

And that’s not the only evidence of the media’s super cozy relationship with the Obama administration that rarely gets a mention.

Virginia Moseley currently works at ABCNews for BenSherwood who’s sister works at the White House. Virginia recruited George Stephanopoulos.

George Stephanopoulos works with ABC News reporter Claire Shipman who’s married to White House Spokesman Jay Carney.

George & Claire work with ABC News Business Reporter Bianna Golodryga who’s married to President Obama’s first Budget Director Peter Orszag.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

@richardgrenell @dylanbyers I assume that would be the same DC reporters who don’t think there’s any media bias?LOL

@kesgardner @richardgrenell and they never get together and discuss any confidential or secret information.

@richardgrenell good grief! This is so unsettling. They’re like a private club with a hive mind. Creepy!
