Strange Bedfellows

John Fund has an interesting note on journalistic conflicts of interest in today’s Opinion Journal Political Diary.

He cites a recent Los Angeles Times guide showing a number of potential media conflicts—one of them being the Times’ own Ron Brownstein whose wife is Sen. John McCain’s chief spokeswoman. Also in the McCain camp is Fox News analyst Nina Easton’s husband. He’s a media advisor to the Arizona Senator.

Then there’s NBC’s Campbell Brown. Her husband is a former aide to President Bush, and was considering joining Mitt Romney’s campaign. Conde Nast’s Matthew Cooper, formerly of Time magazine, is married to Hillary Clinton’s chief ad strategist.

What’s interesting to me is that three of the four are married to Republicans.

Maybe (just maybe) the mainstream media isn’t as totally biased to the left as many of us believe?
