CBS News Hires Longtime Bush Flak As On-Air Analyst
Nicolle Wallace, who was White House Communications Director until July, has joined CBS News as a political consultant.
Wallace has a long association with the Bushes, serving as director of communications for the 2004 campaign, as director of media affairs in President Bush's first term, and press secretary for Bush's brother and Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
She will "provide on-air analysis on a variety of political issues, including the upcoming 2006 elections," CBS News announced.
It'll be interesting if any conservative ranters wonder aloud whether Wallace will provide unfair "conservative media bias." The same folks were hot to jump all over former Clinton communications director George Stephanopoulos after he joined ABC in 1997 as a political analyst -- even when the praise came from ABC News' Diane Sawyer, a one-time Nixon and Ford staffer!
Something tells me the conservative ranters will look the other way with Wallace.
