Cory Booker, Waywire and CNN Conflict of Interest

Everyone knows that Cory Booker loves social media – heck, at times he seems more interested in Twitter than in Newark! But it seems Booker’s love blinded him to an obvious conflict of interest over at Waywire, the Silicon Valley startup in which he holds a stake worth millions.

As reported by the NY Daily News, Waywire gave a paid consulting gig – including stock options – to the 15-year-old son of CNN boss Jeff Zucker. That kid must be a genius! Why else would Booker and his team have brought him on board?

Of course, once this news went public, the deal was off. Gee, why could that be?
