Incest in Washington

Paul Farhi of the Washington Post (June 12, 2013) reported that the elite media and Washington have an issue.  They are too cozy!  Farhi gave examples of relationships that might well breach ethical standards.

1. Claire Shipman, Senior National Correspondent for ABC’s Good Morning America, is married to President Obama’s former White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney.

2. ABC News President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, a top White House National Security Council official who was recently confirmed as the Department of Energy’s Deputy Secretary.

3. Another pair of major network/White House siblings is CBS President David Rhodes and his brother Ben. Ben is the President’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications.

4. Susan Rice, the White House’s National Security Advisor, is the wife of former ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron.

5.  Hillary Clinton’s former Deputy Secretary is married to CNN deputy bureau chief Virginia Moseley.

6. Former ABC reporter Matt Jaffe is married to Deputy Press Secretary Katie Hogan.

We know that the elite media has given up all pretense of being objective.  But these cozy relationships reflect something beyond bias.  They reflect incest that is destructive to all Americans.

About Doc

I am a Psychologist and a veteran of the Vietnam War. I work with abused children and with agencies which try to both prevent abuse and to empower those who have been abused. I feel strongly about child abuse and take every action I can to prevent it and to support the children I work with who have experienced it. I also feel strongly about politics and especially the course being taken by our nation. I believe that America is at a critical point in its development. How we answer the challenges from Islamic fascists and from our own internal enemies in the media, government, and academia will determine America’s future and the future of our children. I believe that if we don’t take the correct course now, America will go the way of Europe and that we will not reach the potential set out by our founding fathers. I believe that it is now getting serious. My gravitar is from "Darkman".
