Wonder no further about Donald Trump’s allegation that CNN is fake news

crew-2231211It seems quite odd that a story attributed to CNN wasn’t covered by them.

 

 

“Daughter of Obama top adviser, Laura Jarrett, will cover DOJ for CNN.” or so the story goes.

CNN recently selected the daughter of top Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to cover the Department of Justice under incoming President Donald Trump, reports The New York Post.

In a press release Wednesday, she and three other reporters were tapped to cover the Trump Justice Department and the Supreme Court.

Jarrett’s hire was unusual in part because she has no journalism experience, working as a private attorney following her graduation from Harvard Law.

But in a 2009 Vanity Fair profile, Jarrett said it was her ambition to one day work as a TV-news legal analyst.

But the Harvard-educated lawyer defended companies and individuals against the Justice Department as a private litigator in Chicago.

Laura married fellow Harvard Law grad Tony Balkissoon in 2012 at a Chicago ceremony attended by Obama, her mom’s boss.

Valerie and Laura Jarrett were partying Wednesday night at a launch party for the news site Axios, held in the middle of inauguration week at RPM Italian in Washington.

Asked about her post-White House plans, Valerie Jarrett said she’ll split time between Chicago and Washington, DC, but first she plans to go on vacation.

Others spotted at the party include Vice President Joe Biden, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, CNN’s Jeff Zucker, Jake Tapper and Wolf Blitzer, MSNBC’s Greta van Susteren, Fox News’ Kristin Fisher and the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward.

Laura Jarrett’s assignment comes a week after Trump publicly refused to answer a CNN correspondent’s question at a press conference.
