If you want to understand why CNN is so biased against Trump and other Republicans, it’s helpful to know that their staff is made up of various people who have very real connections to the world of politics.
Even the daughter of former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett works for the network.
The Washington Free Beacon reported back in January:
CNN Hires Valerie Jarrett’s Daughter
CNN has assigned the daughter of one of President Obama’s top advisers to cover the Department of Justice.
The network announced in a press release that Valerie Jarrett’s daughter Laura would be one of four reporters to cover the Justice Department in 2017. The New York Post broke the news that Jarrett had been hired in September, though a formal announcement about her beat did not come until Thursday.
Jarrett has long wanted to work in television news, though being an objective reporter was not her original goal. She told Vanity Fair in a 2009 “Bright Young Things” profile that her chief ambition was to “work as a TV-news legal analyst.” Her favorite cause was “promoting civil rights and social equality for women and minorities.”
Jarrett worked as a private practice attorney prior to joining the news network, according to her CNN bio page. She has some experience with her beat, having defended “companies and individuals in government investigations brought by the Justice Department,” as well as other government agencies. She does not, however, appear to have any journalism experience. Her last publishing stint came while she attended Harvard Law School.
This isn’t an isolated case either. The world of political media is filled with people who have worked for Democrat politicians, are related to them or are even married to them.
