Politico‘s Jonathan Martin is appearing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Many know he’s the longtime beau of MTP Executive Producer Betsy Fischer.
Is this a little too cozy for comfort? We give it a 6 on the 1-10 scale of Washington sketchiness (1 being not so bad and 10 being off the charts incestuous). Martin is a legitimate news reporter. Should he appear on the program that his girlfriend produces? Probably not. Likely the program could find another out of the hundreds of reporters who live and work here, but it’s Washington — a place where professional and personal often intertwine.
