Cheating In The White House

white house 1[Politico] During her three years editing mediabistro.com’s Washington-based media blog, FishbowlDC, Betsy Rothstein earned her fans and detractors and proved that, in a town of careful tip-toeing, there was plenty of attention to be had by not pulling any punches.

Rothstein’s snarky and, at times, controversial style found her in hot water on a few occasions, but also engendered her to many who found her blunt approach refreshing.

Q: Before we leave, give me a blind item that you always wanted to run but didn’t.

    Engendered her? Did you mean endeared? LOL Maybe you need a thesaurus?

  • What Had Happened Was ...

    Wow, this is juicy! Best guess:

    Jake Tapper
    Dana Bash

  • PapillonLover

    Wendell Goler
    Helen Thomas

  • DivaKarma

    John King (Divorced Dana Bash)
    No Clue???

    Hmm…since it doesn’t say if the married couple is still married or has since divorced, I will guess:

    Married male WH correpsondent: John King
    Correspondent with whom he cheated: Jessica Yellin

    KIng was married for a hot minute to Dana Bash in 2011 (another CNN WH correspondent) and then separated in March 2012. One wonders why they gave up so quickly after having a child. Maybe this is why?

    Not a whole lot of guesses here. I like the Sam and Helen guess. Just because it’s so unbelievable.

  • Vagabondage

    I’ll go with the John King guess as the male correspondent. He and Dana Bash split not too long after they had a child, which was surprising, since he had converted to Judaism to marry her. As to the third party, no clue.

    Mike Viqueira (Al Jazeera, formerly of NBC Network)
    and Dana Bash (CNN)

    She did have a short run with John King…

    Mike is a Wshington insider…good looking, and has been married a long time. It was time for an affair?!

    Brianna Keller from CNN and Ed Henry from Fox.

    On second thought, I think the married male correspondent might be John King. He was actually my first choice, but I couldn’t work out who the other party could be.

    Also, wasn’t there a blind some time ago about a news anchor having an affair with either a coworker or a coworker of his wife? I vaguely recall something like that. I thought it was King then, too.
