A Certain Wedding Guest and Media Ethics

Reports are popping up all over the place that ABC senior foreign correspondent Martha Raddatz had a guest at her wedding in 1991. Someone named Barack Obama.  Now this isn't something that can be easily discovered.  When there are potential conflicts no matter how minor, lawyers for example are obligated to disclose them. 

ABC News is doing its best to tamp down this story. If it is an actual story.  Is it really that big of a deal?  Not at first glance until you consider this:

Martha Raddatz just happens to be the moderator of the Vice-Presidential debate between Biden and Ryan!

Now, ask yourself again, is it really that big of a deal?

Conspiracy theorists, the floor is yours!


  1. Seriously, ABC, Geoge Stephanopolous as your Sunday mornign guy, not this. Can't they find someone who isn't in the pocket of the Democratic Party?

  2. Not an issue if Ryan can stomp on the moderator like Romney did to Jim Lehrer. Also depends on the format of the debate. Can Chris Wallace moderate one of these for once?? Maybe Bill O'Reilly.

  3. I must confess that your writing on taxation is impressive. Issues regarding taxation and IRS are crucial for every business, that is why it is important to have a contact of a good tax lawyer. That is why I am trying to create the directory of the best US tax attorneys with detailed description of their legal practice. For example, look a category related to Illinois You must be a good tax attorney. If you are, you should submit your contacts to the attorney directory.
