Andrea & Alan: How To Cover?

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell is married to former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan. So how should that affect her coverage of the current financial crisis? The New York Times’ Brian Stelter inquires:

    The news division has allowed Ms. Mitchell to continue covering the presidential election, even when the candidates have debated the financial crisis, and has decided on a day-by-day basis what stories are not appropriate for her to cover.

    “To me it’s a pretty easy balancing act,” Mr. Capus said in an interview Sunday. “She knows where to draw the line.”

    That line, NBC has decided, exists when past economic decisions are being re-examined. The fiscal policies championed by Mr. Greenspan, who retired in January 2006, have come under scrutiny in recent weeks.
