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.

    Cozy, and oh-so-fashionable. You can almost hear “Dueling Banjos” in the background…

      well, if the banjo’s crank up- it looks like it’ll more DRAW them than REPEL them…js

    Holy crap! This IS creepy! And we wonder why the lame stream media is the way it is?

    Its that moment when you have seen a mouse here and there, then one day you open that storage box in the closet and find their nest. Call the exterminator.
    1600 Pennsylvania Ave is in need of attention.

      Are you sure they’re not using “pods” ala Invasion of the Body Snatchers? It’s possible that “ipod” could be a codeword.

    WWTTTFFFFFFFF!!!!!!???????? ABC is a hornet’s nest (read “pigsty”) of inbred, compromised, integrity-challenged, politically connected messenger minions.

    Already Been Compromised
    Already Been Converted
    Already Been Co-opted

    To summarize:

    Virginia Moseley currently works at ABCNews for BenSherwood, who’s sister works at the White House. Virginia recruited George Stephanopoulos, who works with ABC News reporter Claire Shipman, who’s married to White House Spokesman Jay Carney, and work with ABC News Business Reporter Bianna Golodryga, who’s married to President Obama’s first Budget Director Peter Orszag, and ABC’s Political Reporter Matt Jaffe and Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary Katie Hogan are married.

    ANYBODY getting their news from ABC is a fool.

    “They never get together and discuss secret information”.

    That’s just it, they just email, tweet, text, and phone each other to send Obama and his administration’s talking points.

    A big, steamy, incestuous pile.

      There should be an exclusion clause for self and significant other to hold a position in the administration.

        I don’t think that’s too far off, actually. Just wait and see…

    This country is looking more and more like communist Russia!!

  • Garth Haycock

    I don’t know why Obama feels the need for plants in the various media. Most all of them are his sycophants. This is just overkill.

  • Danny Meeker

    Conflict of interest, much? Oh, how silly of me….to think that “Democrats” and “ethics” should somehow belong in the same sentence….

  • Seewetoldu

    You see what we are up against?? I don’t know how much more of this Conservatives can handle.

    • sleeper48

      I’m wondering if the tipping point is not far down the road. Americans who really feel strongly that Immelt and Obama are leading us in the wrong direction may have to firmly state that they don’t intend to go that way any longer. We probably need to do that before we lose any more generals to be replaced with Obama’s minions.

      • Doug_Piranha

        That itty bitty speck in your rear view mirror? That’s the tipping point.

      • Ken Reid

        Good point!

      • John Free

        the tipping point was when they killed Hostess- once they set sights on the Keebler Elf’s- ALL BETS ARE OFF !!!

      What ever happened to the “good ole COUP”? For you Barry, that’s coup, as in chicken!

      • sleeper48

        What we are watching right now is a bloodless coup imo. But one we won’t benefit from.

    • Molly Walsh

      It’s not just conservatives that can’t handle this crap. Democrats and Independents are outraged at the bias of the media as well. (At least the intelligent ones are)

  • Joe W.

    Love to see them all at the same supper table this Thanksgiving. That’s a pretty big, cozy family they got there.

    • Catchance

      None of them believe in God, so I wonder to whom they give thanks?

      • sleeper48

        Immelt.

        Barack Obama, of course…;-)

    The tangled web that is the obowmao administration and the Lame Stream Media sounds truly disgusting, my only problem is that I don’t know who any of these people are since I only listen to or watch; Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin—you get my drift. Is that clueless twit katie couric still around?

    • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

      She’s got her own Oprah-like talk show that just started recently (I’m assuming it’s Oprah-like because it is on in the afternoons & from what I’ve seen in the promos, the set with the 2 comfy chairs, etc is similar).

    No wonder the incestuous Democrats and media are incapable of thinking. Isn’t severe mental retardation a common trait among inbreds?

    • stuckinIL4now

      You’ve got the operative key word here: incestuous.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ken.needham.184 Ken Needham

    In a communist/socialist nation, the media is regulated by the gov’t. This makes sense now, the gov’t doesn’t need to regulate the media, they are in bed with the media (LITERALLY)

  • my preciousss!!

    it’s like the media has corrupt & contageous tentacles of which the root are traced to the obama admin. glad i don’t watch them anymore.

  • michael

    IT’s like TNG’s “The HIVE” they all think the same, speak the same, all one mind, all one thought.

  • Devil Dog

    face it people- the communists have taken over. Pointing out hippocracy apparently does not work. If you tell MORE than half the country about this- they WILL NOT care. Watch “AGENDA, The grinding down of America” on Vimeo. It will show you how these “people” have a hundred year head start on us.

  • William Oosterman

    Obama’s dog is a cousin to ABC News Anchors dog. Hmm…real problem.

    Next we’ll find out that Obama’s oldest daughter is dating one of their sons.

    We get the news faster am more accurately now, right? Maybe there should just be a government news agency. O never mind, that’s msnbc… .

  • Barack Hussein Sharpton

    The network morning shows are nothing more than Democrat party propaganda agitprop and what’s really messed up is most Americans don’t have a clue they are being trained to hate Republicans by the likes of Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Oprah’s lesbian lover and the rest of them.

  • CombatDiver

    HEY, you/we can’t even suggest that there may be any kind of shenanigans because that would be racist and possibly sexist.

  • nc

    This was always frustrating, but at least we used to be able to get a chuckle out of it. It’s not funny anymore.

  • irishgirl91

    This is just the MSM to the WH ties. Living in the DC area you start learning how incestuous the place is. It is cloistered and monolithic in thought. In the end it is a company town and as closed off to outside influence as the small “flyover” towns they look down on.

    Same thing he did by hiring the wife of Univision. He only hires women who he wants to control. Hillary was slamming him so he hired her to shut her up. Univision gave him a hard time so he hired the company’s wife. So Obama uses these women & tries to act like he is looking out for them.
