Yahoo News’ Dylan Stableford questioned why New York magazine didn’t disclose its writer Reid Cherlin’s possible conflict of interest in at least two of his reports for the magazine.
According to Stableford’s Sept. 20, 2011 article, Cherlin, who was White House assistant press secretary until March 2011, didn’t disclose his former job in two New York magazine articles related to President Barack Obama.

A New York magazine spokesperson defended the lack of disclosure by stating “We don’t feel his former work presents a conflict with regard to these pieces,” according to Yahoo News.
Yahoo News added that Cherlin includes his former position at the White House on Twitter and suggested that Cherlin only should add a disclosure statement on stories about the Obama administration.
