CNN is so damn biased. CNN sucks.
If CNN was hoping to get on President-elect Donald Trump’s good side, one of the network’s recent personnel moves is certainly not the way to do it.
CNN has assigned Laura Jarrett, the daughter of one of President Barack Obama’s closest advisers, Valerie Jarrett, to cover the Trump Justice Department, the cable outlet announced in a press release Wednesday. The New York Post reported that, though Jarrett’s beat is new, she was actually quietly hired by the network in September.
With no experience in journalism, her qualification for the post is apparently the fact that she is a Harvard-educated lawyer who, according to her CNN bio, has defended “companies and individuals in government investigations brought by the Justice Department.”
Despite her lack of journalism experience, some might find Jarrett’s close ties to Obama (who attended her wedding) and the Democratic Party through her mother to be somewhat off-putting, even if they don’t impede on her ability to report on Trump’s administration objectively.
