Barack Obama presents a birthday cake to Bloomberg White House reporter Julianna Goldman as she blows out the candle
When CBS News replaced Sharyl Attkisson for practicing journalism by investigating Obama scandals such as Fast and Furious and Benghazi, they weren’t taking any chances.
CBS News wanted a sure thing and sure things don’t come any surer than Julianna Goldman.
Goldman’s parents are Obama donors and her mother served as a co-chair for Obama’s team in the 2008 campaign. Her daughter, Julianna, was known as one of the “Obama Originals” for her reporting on the 2008 campaign. She later attended a “reunion” party to celebrate her status.
Julianna Goldman got three interviews with Obama despite her lack of name recognition, including his first post-election interview.
Again unusual since you probably never even heard of her name before this. And this wasn’t the first time that Obama went all out to help out Julianna Goldman.
After keeping the White House press corps waiting for more than 40 minutes in the rain, President Barack Obama finally emerged from the West Wing to hold a press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Obama took the first question from Bloomberg’s Julianna Goldman, whose parents contributed at least $5,400 to Obama during the last cycle.
Today was not the first time Goldman has received preferential treatment from Obama. Obama personally served birthday cake to Goldman during an Air Force One flight from Afghanistan last May.
Goldman is the ex-wife of MSNBC, Current TV and Al Jazeera bottomfeeding hack David Shuster. Shuster was fired from MSNBC and Goldman divorced him.
Obama’s chats with Julianna Goldman were meant to promote him as pro-business. And meant to promote her. Now CBS News has replaced a reporter who investigated Obama with a propagandist who promoted him.
