Whenever CNN goes off about President Donald Trump having conflicts of interest, just remember CNN’s inaction regarding their own conflicts. Wednesday’s CNN Right Now featured a gooey interview with longtime Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett and, as par for the course, failed to note how she’s the mother of supposedly objective CNN Justice reporter Laura Jarrett.

On May 5, 2018, NewsBusters wrote that Jarrett had “given seven interviews and, according to the CNN transcript, Laura’s name never came up.” Since then, she’s done an additional seven interview segments and her personal connection to CNN came up only twice (with one of them being Valerie disclosing it herself). So, two for 14 isn’t a great ratio, Jeffrey Zucker!
