CNN staff angered at news chief’s conflict of interest over Israel ambassador pick

CNN staff are furious after the husband of their top news chief was nominated for US ambassador to Israel — claiming the move is a conflict of interest, The Post is told.

Tom Nides, 60, was nominated to the Middle East role by President Biden earlier this month, the White House announced.

But the nomination has left more than a few eyebrows raised over at CNN as Nides is married to Virginia Moseley, CNN’s “powerhouse” senior vice president of newsgathering in the US.

“People are mad, they see it as a big conflict of interest, even if Virginia works in domestic news, this all still plays into domestic politics and deals closely with Biden’s administration,” a network source told The Post.

“It has conflict of interest written all over it.”
