In Gushing Interview With Derek Jeter, Gretchen Carlson "Forgot" To Tell Viewers Her Husband Is His Agent

Reported by Ellen - December 3, 2009 -

As the Huffington Post reported, Gretchen Carlson gushed over New York Yankees star Derek Jeter in her interview with him on Wednesday, December 2. But she failed to mention that her husband is Jeter's agent. With video

Before airing her pre-recorded interview with Jeter, Carlson said, "He's considered the last pure athlete in Major League Baseball. He seems to do everything right."

Before she asked a single question, Carlson told Jeter, "You're the hottest athlete right now in the world." Then she read off a series of awards that he has won.

Carlson also asked, "How difficult is it to live your life so perfectly?" However, afterward, she told viewers that she got him to admit one flaw, that he doesn't make his bed in the morning.

Gee, Gretchen, do you think it might have been relevant to let your viewers know you have a personal stake in Jeter's success?
