Another round of bad news for Elise Labott

Elise Labott, CNN’s global affairs correspondent, was suspended back in November for an opinionated tweet; shortly thereafter, it was revealed from a Hillary Clinton email dump that she was coordinating with Clinton aide Philip Reines.

Only now, it seems that Labott maintains a close relationship with aide Reines.

As Gawker reports, in March 2009, when Labott was serving as CNN’s State Department producer, Reines offered Labott a job (though, possibly as a joke).

He wrote, “Any day you’d like to join PA [Public Affairs], we have a desk for you.”

Labott replied, “I want to be the undersecretary for public diplomacy. I’d be the spokesman too you know.”
