If you had any doubt that ABC News is in bed with the White House…

Daniel Halper at the Weekly Standard reports:

A deputy press secretary for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign married an ABC reporter over the weekend. The ABC reporter, Matthew Jaffe, “covering the 2012 presidential campaign,” according to his biography on the website of ABC News. “For the past year he traveled around the country covering the Republican primary, from the Iowa Straw Poll to the various debates to this year’s primaries and caucuses.”

The deputy press secretary Jaffe married is Katie Hogan. Many members of Obama’s reelection team and the press celebrated the wedding together Saturday…

Congratulations to the happy couple! But wait a second: “Members of Obama’s reelection team and the press”? Isn’t that redundant?

Jaffe and Hogan appear to have registered for wedding gifts at Bloomingdales and Crate & Barrel. A search of BarackObama.com reveals that the newlyweds have not registered with the Obama campaign, which would have allowed well-wishers to send cash donations to the campaign instead of getting wedding gifts.

The newlyweds are keeping their wedding gifts for themselves, instead of giving them to Obama? Well, that’s pretty weird.

Just in case you missed it, one of the guys ABC News has assigned to report on Mitt Romney is literally in bed with the deputy press secretary for Obama 2012. Just another interesting piece of information to file away for the next time you hear something that ABC considers news.
