Lapdog media fail to report new CNN deputy bureau chief is married to a deputy secretary of state

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.

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.

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.

Nothing to see here. Move along.
