Campbell Brown Says White House Should Target Bias on Right AND Left

campbellbrown_10-28.jpgOn her program last night, CNN’s Campbell Brown showed the interview with Obama Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett last evening, and added an editorial about the “White House war with Fox News.”

Is ABC News Hogging White House Dinner Guests?

Stephanopoulos_4.30.jpgThe Hill reports on next weekend’s White House Correspondents Association Dinner – the party of the year where the media elite, politicos and Hollywood stars come together.

But, The Hill reports, “news outlets are grumbling” about ABC’s guest list. “Several people pointed to ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos‘s close friendship with [Obama Chief of Staff Rahm] Emanuel, and questioned how the network got so many big names.” Those names include Emanuel, adviser Valerie Jarrett, CIA Director Leon Panetta and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice.

Rice was an easy get. Her husband is the Executive Producer of Stephanopoulos’ Sunday show.
