White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel announced he would be leaving the Obama administration to run for Mayor of Chicago last week. According to White House visitor logs released Friday, media personalities and executives were regulars on the guest list to meet with Emanuel.
Some of the names are journalists, like The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza and NY Times columnist Tom Friedman.
However, some high profile media executives made the cut.
David Cohen, an executive VP with Comcast, met with Emanuel December 3, 2009 and April 15, 2010. December 3 was also the day Comcast announced its intention to acquire NBC Universal.
Another surprising name is still to be confirmed: Keith R. Murdoch, who may be Keith Rupert Murdoch, the News Corp. CEO, who owns Fox News Channel.
