From Bill V - e- Rumor Story and Fact Checking ( Links Between Obama Admin. and the Media)



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 former 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.  Think there might be a little bias in the news?   This may also explain the cover up of Benghazi , etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.,........
Isn't it interesting that every place you look in Obama's administration people fill positions because of who they know, not what they know or how competent they are ----

and you wonder why our country has so many problems.

Now you know.

The Truth:
The claims in this forwarded email are true, but a number of them are outdated as well. investigated an earlier version of this chain email that named a number of connections between the media industry and the Obama Administration. Our story on that version of the eRumor can be found here.  
Another version of the eRumor went viral in February of 2015. That version includes a number of new connections between political operatives and people who work in news media, which is commonly referred to as “media incest.” Here’s a look at each claim:
Susan Rice and Ian Cameron are married – Truth! & Outdated! 
Susan Rice and Ian Cameron met while attending college at Stanford University and married in 1992. But Cameron left ABC News at the end of 2010 after spending 13 years with the organization. Cameron said he wanted a job that allowed him to spend more time with his family.
CBS President David Rhodes and Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security advisor to President Obama, are brothers – Truth!
It’s true that David Rhodes and Ben Rhodes are brothers. The connection between the brothers drew criticism after CBS Evening News opted not to report on an email written by Ben Rhodes that reportedly demonstrated how the Obama Administration had shaped talking points surrounding the deadly attacks in Benghazi in 2012.
CBS later said that David Rhodes had not been involved in the decision, and that an earlier broadcast that did report on the email included a disclaimer about the brothers’ relationship. 
Reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Deputy Press Secretary Katie Hogan – Truth! & Outdated!
Matthew Jaffe, a reporter for ABC News and Univision, and Katie Hogan were married in 2012. But Hogan later left her position as deputy press secretary and is now identified as a spokesperson for the nonprofit group Organizing for Action, which grew from President Obama’s reelection campaign.
ABC President Ben Sherwood and Elizabeth Sherwood, special advisor to President Obama, are siblings – Truth!
It’s true that Ben Sherwood and Elizabeth Sherwood are siblings. Elizabeth Sherwood was named as the White House coordinator for defense policy, weapons of mass destruction and arms control in March of 2013.
CNN’s Virginia Moseley is married to former Deputy Secretary Tom Nides – Truth!
It’s true that Virginian Moseley and Tom Nides were married in 2012. At the time, Moseley was a producer for CBS News. Moseley was named a vice president at CNN in 2012 — but not the network’s president, as the eRumor claims.
