Isn't this special !
Did you know these connections?
ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.
CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.
ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney
ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary
ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood
CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.
And now you know why it is no surprise the media is in Obama's pocket.

You know what's lacking here? Evidence that the media is in Obama's pocket.

The media is "in the pocket" of any sitting president. For an example of that, please note that Dick Cheney and George W. Bush are still walking around as free men, when any decent independent media would have hounded them for their war crimes.

So? According to the Supreme Court (and Justice Thomas, currently married to the head of one of the largest Tea Party Organizations, something he "forgot" to disclose on a mandatory form) none of this qualifies as corruption.

I'm also shocked that wingnuts have so little respect for the institution of marriage, which they claim to find sacred.

This is interesting and factual and worth revealing and discussing. There is a very bought-off relationship between the so-called 4th Estate these days and the hoi polloi in the Fed Govt.

That said, would this same rightwing think tank be calling out similar relationships between the media & the White House should an "R" be Pres?

I believe the chances of that are less than Zero.

The media is bought off, neutered and not doing its job AT. ALL. IMHO. But I've felt the same way for the past 30 years since Zombie Sainted Reagan was in the White House.

This IS a wake up sheeples email, but of course, the right wing think tank makes it seem like propaganda is only happening under Obama.

Pull the other one...

Good comments.

The last time the media did its actual job was 40 years ago.

Now it just sucks up to power, comforting the comfortable and afflicting the afflicted.

Also agree with comments. Let us not forget the very very up close and personal relationship between Fox & the Republicans.

Agree that these current relationships, as highlighted here, are troubling. But what about all the rest? This is only part of the story... as usual coming from your RWD.

Fair and Balanced? Yeah: ha ha ha ha... that'll be the day.

And Justice Antonin Scalia who went on hunting trips with Dick Cheney, attends events paid for by conservative financier Charles Koch whose company is a major Reich-wing contributor, and has never recused himself in the case of Cheney v. USDC for District of Columbia, nor from Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.

Or Justice Samuel Alito who attended an American Spectator fundraising gala whose PAC opposed Obama’s healthcare program, the constitutionality of which would be decided by the court in Sissel v. United States Department of Health & Human Services, for which Alito never recused himself.

And then there's Fox's Howard Kurtz (with his myriad conflicts of interest) and his wife #2, a Full-Metal-Reich-wing Republican operative who has written for National Review, was a spokesperson for the Arnold Schwarzenegger, helped run anti-affirmative action, anti-bilingual education, and anti-immigration, and anti-gay marriage campaigns. Howie frequently writes about her former and potential clients and that conflict of interest is never mentioned.
