The Media Circle: Liberal Filmmaker George Lucas to Marry Liberal ABC News Analyst

January 8th, 2013 9:24 AM

Liberal ABC News contributor Mellody Hobson will marry liberal Hollywood mogul George Lucas, announced a spokesperson for Lucasfilm. Hobson, a financial contributor on Good Morning America, was a bundler for Barack Obama in 2012, putting together $131,200 for the Democrat.

The man behind Star Wars is even more left-wing, having previously compared Dick Cheney to the emperor in his films: "George Bush is Darth Vader...Cheney is the emperor."

In 2008, Hobson donated $28,500 to the Obama Victory Fund. She is now a chairwoman of Dreamworks Animation.

ABC analysts apparently have a thing for marrying liberal Democrats. 

In 2010, economics reporter Bianna Golodryga married Barack Obama's then-budget chief Paul Orszag.
