CNN's longstanding pro-Castellanos disclosure double standard

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

A quick follow-up on the CNN/Alex Castellanos flap. Last week, Media Matters revealed that CNN contributor Alex Castellanos' consulting firm works for the health insurance industry. In response, a CNN spokesperson said Castellanos' conflict of interest would be disclosed in the future. Then Greg Sargent revealed that Castellanos' firm is also producing anti-health care reform ads for the Chamber of Commerce.

All of which reminds me that CNN has long held the conservative Castellanos to a looser disclosure standard than it holds liberal contributors James Carville and Paul Begala, as I explained last year.
