Why? Well, it turns out that a politician associating with a news network head is some kind of scandal:
In Fox News, Giuliani Finds a Friendly StageDespite my best google efforts, I can't seem to find a similar story about the many relationships that existed between executives at CBS, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC and the Clintons ever having appeared in the Times ...
By Russ Buettner, The New York Times
Roger Ailes and Rudolph W. Giuliani have been pulling for each other for nearly two decades.
Now these allies and friends find themselves on largely uncharted political turf. Mr. Giuliani, 63, is a leading Republican candidate for president. Mr. Ailes, 67, is head of Fox News, the pre-eminent media outlet for likely voters in a Republican primary.
Whether their friendship would ever affect coverage — Fox insists that it has not and will not — it is nonetheless the sort of relationship that other campaigns have noted, though none wanted to speak publicly for fear of offending the station. (link)
... but I did find this:
Longtime Friend of Bill Clinton to Produce the CBS Evening NewsIt seems odd that only now this sort of interaction becomes noteworthy.
The AP reported Wednesday night that CBS News will announce Thursday that Rick Kaplan, a former Executive Producer of ABC's World News Tonight and Nightline who later ran both CNN and MSNBC, will become the Executive Producer of the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. Kaplan has had a long record of friendly relations with former President Bill Clinton, advising Clinton on how to respond to the Gennifer Flowers scandal in 1992 and blocking anti-Clinton stories from appearing on Nightline. Kaplan has also been hostile to conservatives and once even declared that disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather's "legacy" was "the gold standard journalists today have struggled to live up to."
