After Criticism, CNN Discloses Fiorina's Role With The Romney Campaign

After repeatedly failing to disclose Carly Fiorina's involvement with the Romney campaign during her appearances on the network, CNN identified Fiorina as the "California Co-chair, Romney For President" during her appearance on The Situation Room last week:

Several media outlets have recently struggled with proper disclosure of Romney advisers and other figures closely involved in the upcoming elections; CNN's move is a step in the right direction.

As Media Matters noted, Fiorina made several appearances on CNN in September and October, frequently boosting Mitt Romney while attacking President Obama with a range of often-false Romney campaign talking points. During those appearances, Fiorina was identified in a variety of ways, such as former CEO of Hewlett-Packard; chair of the charity group Good360; former Republican Senate candidate and vice-chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

In addition to being the California Co-Chair of Romney's campaign, Fiorina has also been named to the Women for Mitt National Advisory Board.
