Veteran journalists at CBS are reportedly quite upset with network host Gayle King after she enjoyed a recent yacht vacation with Barack and Michelle Obama in Tahiti.
King, co-host of "CBS This Morning," went on a star-studded vacation with the former president and first lady, Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, and her best friend Oprah Winfrey on billionaire David Geffin's 138-meter luxury yacht, called the Rising Sun.
A source told Page Six on Thursday that CBS journalists are "pissed and raving mad" at King for vacationing with the Obamas while she anchors a news program that covers the White House.
"The Capital J' journalists are pissed and raving mad that she was on a yacht with the Obamas over the weekend. The old-school people were talking about it. She shouldn't be doing that," the source said. "She's an anchor of a news program that covers the White House. You're held to a different standard."
"It's one thing to be friendly. It's another thing to go vacationing on a yacht," the source added.

Probably just mad they didn’t get an invite themselves.
This is major B.S.!
What irony and hypocrisy.
I’m sure that Gayle’s opinions of President Trump were in no way influenced by her vacation with her personal friends the Obamas.
Were all of Geffin’s guests over 18?
In Gayle’s mind, she was just spending some quality time with her girlfriend.
What old school people do they still have, that didn’t sleep with all the Democrats and communist leaders?
If her girlfriend wants to vacation with the Obamas, then she has to go. But if CBS thinks that Gayle King appears unbiased to anybody, they are drinking their own kool-aid. This vacation does not make her politics any more obvious.
I remember her when she was on TV in the Hartford CT market which has legs and you could watch clear as a bell in MA as well. IMHO she is obnoxious, lets move on....
Fake news. There aren’t any journalist at CBS
By whom? By editors and producers who would happily trade places with the yacht rider? This "outrage" has all the hypocrisy of a member of the Capone gang suddenly finding out that the boss has unpaid parking tickets.
I actually salute her for being so damn open about her bias. The ones carping at her are just as biased but pretend to have integrity by avoiding getting caught on somebody’s yacht.
Mind you, I still think every single Republican who appears with King on CBS should work the whole thing into every single conversation no matter how extraneous just to make her look bad.
You are so right. Because all the other press is so untainted and so objective. Hey, might as well get the trip, Gayle. You were never going to be straight with America on the current POTUS anyhow.
C’mon CBS let’s not confuse envy with anger.
Thats just stoopid .
Chick knew the Obama’s, Oprah is her BFF and sbe probably knew a few others on the trip as well.
The Obama’s are no longer in the White Hut so WTH does it matter she vacationed with them.
Sumpin ain’t write about this store....Eee
