When media is married to the government

Susan Rice -- who may take the fall for Obama's illegal spying on President Trump -- is married to former ABC News producer Ian Officer Cameron. Some conservatives are outraged.

Why? Marrying into Democratic Party presidential regimes is routine among the media in Washington.

In "Trump the Establishment," I devoted a chapter -- "One Big Happy Family" -- to this phenomenon.

An excerpt:
In 2012, CNN hired Virginia Moseley as its Washington deputy bureau chief and vice president. Its listing for her on its website mentioned her previous work at ABC News and CBS News, as well as her bachelor’s degree from Harvard. Not mentioned was Tom Nides, whom she married in 1992. Nides served as deputy secretary of state for Management and Resources when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
And ABC News producer Ian Cameron married Susan Rice in 1992. Rice became the US ambassador to the United Nations in 2009. Cameron left ABC a year later.
And ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe in 2012 married Katie Hogan, an Obama spokeswoman who left to become spokeswoman for Organizing for Action, a tax-exempt group that pushed Obama’s agenda.
And Michael Gottlieb worked in the White House counsel’s office throughout Obama’s first term. He married NPR reporter Ari Shapiro in 2004, who covered the White House from 2010 to 2014.
And Sari Horwitz covered the Department of Justice for the Washington Post beginning in January 2012. Her husband was William B. Schultz, the general counsel of the Department of Human Services.
And Neil King, a political reporter for the Wall Street Journal, was married to Vice President Joe Biden’s spokeswoman, Shailagh Murray. She was a former Washington Post reporter.
And ABC News reporter Claire Shipman was married to Jay Carney, who served as President Obama’s second official spokesman. Another familial conflict involved Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security advisor for strategic communications, who bragged in 2016 about how he misled reporters about the Iranian nuclear program, which helped sway public support of this foreign policy disaster. His brother was David Rhodes, president of CBS.
And ABC News president Ben Sherwood was the brother of Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, who joined the Obama administration in 2009.
“After marrying her progeny into the royal houses of Germany, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Greece and Spain, Queen Victoria was known as the grandmother of Europe. The inbreeding among Obama’s court and its press corps is more like one of those ‘I’m my own grandpa’ deals,” radio host Mark Steyn wrote.
Elsewhere in the book, I delve into George Stephanopoulos -- the Chief Conflict of Interest at ABC News.

And of course, Disney owns ABC. Hillary supporter Bob Iger is chief executive officer of Disney.

Maybe Iger arranged the marriage of Cameron to Rice.

Of course none of them will marry into the Trump administration because they all loathe him and anyone who works for him.

Oddly enough, the inter-breeding Media-Democratic Party Complex complains of nepotism by President Trump.

This is just part of the explanation for how these bozos and bozettes missed the story of their lives: the election of Donald Trump, against all odds.

  1. Rice will try to stick to the omerta, but she's apparently so stupid, she can't get her lies straight.

    One by one, all the people who helped kill Stevens, Smith, Woods, and Doherty are going down.

    funny that.

  3. Intermarriage between the Democrats and the MSM is incestuous and the synergistic results include blatant lies, projection, criminality, and hysteria. - Elric

  4. Dems marry their Dem operatives with bylines. Incestuous as it is.

    Fun Fact: Even though many of the European royal families were related through Queen Victoria, that didn't stop them from mutually slaughtering each other little more than a decade after she died.

    There's a lesson to be learned from this, but I doubt the DC Luminati will get a clue.
