Iconic Journalists Say Gayle King Shouldn’t Have Vacationed With The Obamas
Gayle King recently went on vacation with the Obamas in Tahiti (with Oprah of course), which shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as they’ve all been friends for quite some time.
But now that Gayle has a more serious gig with CBS, some old school journalists are saying it might be a conflict of interest.
“The ‘Capital J’ journalists are pissed and raving mad that she was on a yacht with the Obamas over the weekend,” a source told Page Six. “The old-school people were talking about it. She shouldn’t be doing that. She’s an anchor of a news program that covers the White House. You’re held to a different standard. It’s one thing to be friendly. It’s another thing to go vacationing on a yacht,”
Oprah and Gayle were on billionaire David Geffen’s yacht along with Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, and of course the Obamas — talk about a circle of friends!
Apparently, even Charlie Rose was a little bit upset.
“Charlie wasn’t pleased. I thought he and Gayle got along, but when things like this happen, it makes the show look bad,” the source said.
However, a spokesperson from CBS chimed in to say, “There’s no truth to any of that. We love Gayle King. Sounds like sour grapes.”
