Obama-Nominated Justice Kagan Officiates at Wedding of CBS News Reporter to Ex-Obama Staffer

Julianna Goldman, who endured a marriage to former FNC, MSNBC, Current and Al-Jazeera America host/reporter David Shuster, got married on Saturday, in Aspen, Colorado, to Michael Gottlieb, a former associate White House counsel for Obama.

The New York Times reported on Sunday that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, a former colleague of Gottlieb’s at the White House, “officiated.”

Goldman was Bloomberg’s White House correspondent until a few weeks ago. “Next month,” the NY Times item noted, “she is to join CBS News as a television correspondent in its Washington bureau.”

TVNewser today picked up on the July 13 Times item, which relayed: “The groom, 37, is a partner in the Washington office of the New York law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner. He was associate White House counsel in 2009 and again from 2011-13.”

The New York Times post has a photo of the happy couple.

My “News Media-Obama” revolving door list does not include family relations and connections by marriage, just those who have themselves worked for both a news media outlet and had or have an Obama-related position. Highlights of that list on NewsBusters. Complete list on MRC.org.
