Incest Desk

NYT‘s Mark Leibovich likely has enough examples of cozy Washington scenarios for his upcoming book on Washington’s incestuous culture. But we’re starting this new feature anyhow to highlight a subject that’s begging for attention.

On NBC’s “MTP” on Sunday, host David Gregory featured a quote from Politico‘s Jonathan Martin. Of all the quotes Gregory could have chosen in a sea of Washington reporting, he chooses J-Mart’s? The executive producer of the program is Betsy Fischer, Martin’s girlfriend.

Conflict of interest alert: Medium high.
