When your fiancé is executive producer of “MTP” it’s easier to let your co-writer go on the program, even if it is the more impressive show. Such was the case this weekend when Politico‘s Maggie Haberman appeared on Sunday’s “MTP” to discuss the Herman Cain sexual harassment story instead of the story’s lead writer Jonathan Martin. Now that he’s engaged to be married, Martin has to contend with that whole Betsy Fischer conflict when and if he appears on her show. Martin instead appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

Haberman got high marks from journalists around town for her appearance, such as a shout-out from RCP‘s Erin McPike who told her she was “killing it.” If Martin had appeared on the program it would have been his second time.

Points to Martin for taking the straight and narrow path, or at least the one without a bed in it.
